What Makes An Anime Memorable?

Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou

Sure, I’ve talked about the top 5 anime I’ll rewatch countless times because I just adore it so much. Or maybe how I’d choose which anime to watch and I tend to stick my favorite genres. I won’t hesitate to give other genres a go, of course. Otherwise, I won’t be watching Haganai or Mayo Chiki. They’re not that bad. I have a habit of ranking my favorite anime of the year too.

An anime season consists of a lot of series so it needs that extra special something to stand out from the rest.

It’s Not Your Ordinary Penguin

Feeling uninspired to write anything this week, I shall then share with you all the little penguin that has found its way to me recently. It’s papercraft, by the way. Very much similar to the one I posted here, but with a tiny little difference.

Unlike the previous papercraft, I’m not 100% sure if this is a penguin from Mawaru Penguindrum. It does look similar. Anyways, it’s adorable so it doesn’t matter.
