Merry Days of Anime: Natsume Yuujinchou (Season One)

Fellow anibloggers Irina and Karandi have made their adoration for this anime quite apparent over the years per their respective blogs. When I tweeted out some early impressions of the show, Scott from Mechanical Anime Reviews gave me the social media equivalent of a fistbump. Despite the large volume of expectations that could’ve gone into it, my decision to watch this was entirely based in curiosity and, to a lesser degree, on a whim.

I do not regret it at all. Continue reading “Merry Days of Anime: Natsume Yuujinchou (Season One)”

Yugami-kun ni wa Tomodachi ga Inai – Solitude’s Strengths (and Weaknesses)

Note: Yugami-kun ni wa Tomodachi ga Inai has not finished scanlating at the time of this writing. That in mind, note that my overall reflection of the piece’s quality may change (slightly) upon the release of the final chapters. With 79 of 81 chapters released, however, any major feelings are unlikely to change. Continue reading “Yugami-kun ni wa Tomodachi ga Inai – Solitude’s Strengths (and Weaknesses)”

I was pretty entertained by Mob Psycho 100‘s first season. Based on its first episode (which I watched prior to leaving the show on-hold as it finished out the season), I wondered if it might take a more normal approach this time around. The episodes that followed only strengthened that assumption, before everything that I never would have expected came flying back at me like a punch from an esper god. My face still hurts.

World of Light Is Not What I Wanted, and I Love It

world of light 1

In a post published last month almost immediately following Nintendo’s final Direct featuring Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, I detailed exactly what I was looking for in the new game’s adventure mode. To nutshell it, I wanted a heavy focus on cinematics (a la Subspace Emissary from Brawl) while also providing a varied approach to the unveiled “Spirits” mode that was implied to be a heavy factor in the World of Light trailer. I also noted that I didn’t want World of Light to simply be “running around on the map and keeping oneself busy with progression and fights against the remnants of the fallen roster.” Continue reading “World of Light Is Not What I Wanted, and I Love It”
