[Review] The Great Pretender (Netflix)

I am SO excited to talk about this show on my blog!! I’m actually surprised I haven’t seen too much about The Great Pretender, or maybe I really am living under a rock. I remember hearing about it and I most definitely told myself I’d get to it eventually. Eventually was a year later because I forgot and only remembered when I opened Netflix up and started my usual 5-hour browsing marathon

[Review] B: The Beginning (Netflix)

I’ve been meaning to talk about this anime on the blog for what feels like forever now. Every time I open WordPress and check my drafts, this is at the top. But when I open the post, I always stop. Why? Because all I can really say about this show is that I didn’t entirely understand it but still really enjoyed it

I know, what kind of review is that, right?

And by the time I actually had the will to just write anything, I also forgot the smaller details. Yup, it’s been a while since I last properly watched this. That is, until last month. Yup! Last month I decided to rewatch this show because I’d seen that there was now a S2 and I can’t just jump into S2 without remembering S1, right? But I gave myself a little challenge this time. I rewatched it…in Spanish!

[Review] Demon Slayer (Netflix)

So the other day I asked my friend, who went to watch Mugen Train with me and others, if she liked the Demon Slayer series (yes, she went without having watched the series but that was on me, I forgot DS was on Netflix and I didn’t tell her ;;;) and she just smiled and said she loved it. I thought to myself, why does everyone that I know love this series? Maybe I watched it incorrectly?!

If that doesn’t give you a clue about how I felt about Demon Slayer…well, how can I be more direct?

[Review] BNA: Brand New Animal

I was browsing Netflix in hopes of finding something interesting to watch and oh boy, this one caught my attention ASAP. I decided to watch the first episode to see if it was actually interesting and the next thing I know, it’s evening and I’m on the last episode!

BNA (or Brand New Animal) is a Trigger x Netflix anime that aired earlier this year. It’s 12 episodes long and follows Michiru Kagemori, a teenage ex-human girl, as she escapes into Anima City soon after she mysteriously turns into a tanuki beastkin. Anima City is said to be a paradise and refuge for wandering beastkin and since the mainland is ignorant of beastkin affairs, which has manifested in violent anti-beastkin protests and attacks, Michiru believes this is the best place to live until she figures out a way to turn back into a human. While there, she meets Shirou Ogami, a wolf beastman who helps keep Anima City safe and who hates humans…a lot. Because of her unusual circumstances, the mayor of Anima City decides it’s best she be kept near Shirou, lest trouble find her

[Review] Witch Hunter Robin

Hey guys! And welcome back to another anime review. Actually, it’s been a few weeks since I’ve had the urge to pick up this series again and with the weather getting warmer and my strength depleted, I thought it was time to just stay in bed and rewatch this childhood gem! I don’t actually remember where I first watched it but eventually something led to my owning the box set and rewatching the ending song over and over until it became one of the first Japanese songs I learned as a kid. Surprisingly, I still remembered most of the lyrics so you bet I started SUBETEWA ITAMI WO TOMONAUHODO AZAYAKAing to that beauty

[Review] Bleach: The Substitute, The Entry, and The Rescue

Recently I’ve been in the mood to revisit a lot of older content like books and fanfiction so I’m not surprised this also extended into my anime watching habits. Actually, it’s a good thing it did because I haven’t watched nearly enough anime in the last (possibly almost) two years. Now, this all started because my brother came to the living room and announced that his favorite show, the god of all gods, the perfection of orange haired manliness WAS COMING BACK
