Clannad Review

Slice-of-life. Comedy. Visual Novel. Romance. Reverse Harem. Drama. Fairytale. Clannad is many things. In the past I’d seen Air and Kanon 2006 and to be honest, I wasn’t really impressed by the stories that I was given. Yes, Kyoto Animation … Continue reading

Out of the Box: Clock Zero Cards

Hey guys, in honour of the new Diabolik Lovers series that’s ongoing this season. I wanted to share with you guys my cards from Clock Zero playing cards.

Clock Zero is another otome visual novel which follows a girl named Kurou Nadeshiko who ends up joining a club called Clock Zero… Throw in some romance, a few routes, some supernatural elements and time skips. I find each of the male characters pretty interesting so if you understand Japanese and you’re into otome visual novels, try the game!

I got these from a gashapon machine while I was in Japan (so I guess a better title to this post would be “out of the ball”) and they fit perfectly in the palm of your hand. The art from the game is well represented in the scenes where the couples are depicted and I love the chibi character designs of the boys!

I hope you guys liked this quickie post. I really hope for a Clock Zero anime sometime in the near future…

Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou Episode 12 &13 Review

Episode 12 Rating: 4.5/5 curiously excited clouds  I’m really glad I decided to go with my gut feeling to combine both episodes into one final review because the events from both really tie up the entire last part of the … Continue reading

Diabolik Lovers Episode 1-2 Impressions

Hello otome fans! How are you guys liking Diabolik Lovers so far? I decided to combine both recaps/reviews/impressions of the first two episodes in one post because to be honest, nothing really happens in the first episode. Typical first episode … Continue reading

Free! Episode 12 and Final Thoughts

A very good ending to a very good show, to say the least. What started out as an awful lot of fanservice has evolved into a thoughtful storyline very worthy of its place in the slice-of-life and sports category. Rating: … Continue reading

Makai Ouji – Devils and Realist Episode 12 and Closing Remarks

Of many of the endings I’ve seen for season long animes, this one ending was a bit surprising but not to the point that I’m confused, nor to the point that it dissatisfies me. To the ending of Makai Ouji, … Continue reading

Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi Episode 12 and Last Words

WEIRD ENDING! And not at all conclusive to the original overarching concept of Ai’s goal to save the world.  I don’t say this much to anime finales. I’m usually not a hard critic of what they do with the plot … Continue reading

Free! Episode 11 Review

Rating: 4/5 happy clouds  Took me a while to get to this episode but I’m really happy how it turned out. Many of the slice-of-life elements pile up in this episode making for less action but a lot more touchy-feely … Continue reading

Out of the Box: K-On! Azusa Nakano SQ Banpresto Figure

Hey guys! I wanted to show you guys an “Out of the Box” segment today featuring my new K-On! figurine. Azusa is one my favourite character of the series and I’m always looking for new Azusa figures to add to my K-On collection. I’m really really obsessed with collecting K-On merch cause they’re all so cute and adorable. I’m use to figures being a bit smaller and sometimes A LOT smaller than the size of box. I was thoroughly pleased with the size of this figure (it’s around 8-9 inches), I love the smooth matte finish of the painting and the really delicate cute emotion that Azusa has on. Her pigtails defy gravity! (LOL)

Hopefully I can find the other characters online somewhere!

Makai Ouji – Devils and Realist Episode 11 Review

Okay, now with the continuation of this episode, I see how the randomly off-to-the-side intermission parody of last episode is bracketed off as its own thing while the main plot and conflict rages on. This is ending in two days! … Continue reading
