Thanks to upcoming reviews of Love Live! Sunshine!!, New Game!, and Amanchu!, the list this season is rather short and mostly devoid of yuri-ish titles. Nevertheless, the show must go on, so enjoy our Final Thoughts on the summer anime season that just came to an end~
Bananya • 6.5/10
Length: 13 (Short) Episodes • Genre: Comedy
If you were to look up fluff in the dictionary, I’m sure there would be a screenshot of Bananya staring back at you. That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad, but it’s clearly for people who are into cute things above all else. There’s no plot, and the narrator is the only source of actual dialogue, yet it somehow works, and every episode is a surprisingly enjoyable look into the lives of tiny cats that live in bananas.
If the episodes were any longer than three minutes each, I think the show would grow tedious and it would lose a lot of its charm, but as it stands, just marveling at the adorableness of it all is enough for me.
It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our final thoughts on the spring anime season that just came to an end~
Boku no Hero Academia • 8/10
Length: 13 Episodes • Genre: Action, Comedy, School, Super Power
This is unfortunately the only show I didn’t drop this season (Lena speaking), so I guess this is already proof enough of how much I liked it.
From opening to ending, all episodes through, this show never ceased to entertain me with its great action scenes, its lovable characters, and the endless struggle of our main character, Midoriya, to achieve his goal.
Well, I guess Midoriya was a little too whiny at times, and Bakugou, in contrast, a little too angry and annoying, though they kind of had some very weird chemistry going on that makes me want to ship them. Weird, isn’t it? They don’t even go well with each other, and on top of that, they are two guys, though I still can’t help it….
This whodunit murder mystery was easily my favorite show of the season, and it wasn’t even close. Thanks to some great storytelling that’s full of tension and intrigue, I was basically glued to the screen, eagerly awaiting what would happen next. From the first episode, this anime gets you hooked by throwing a plot twist at you that really sets the stage for what’s to come. Ultimately, suspense is the name of the game here, and I was very surprised at how well it comes across in this series. Continue reading →
We’re back with our final thoughts on the summer anime season~
Non Non Biyori Repeat & Working!!! • 7/10
Sorry for adding both of them at the same time. But I just feel like what I have to say for these two shows is pretty much the same.
Even though they didn’t lose their special touch, it still feels like the prior seasons were better. Well, Working! is still a greatly entertaining comedy, and Non Non Biyori is still as relaxing as it was last season, but something is missing.
To say it in meme language:
So sorry for that stupid meme. I promise I will never add one again. 😛
Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough time to start watching many different shows this season, but I did pick up 3, and this one was my favorite! Queerbaiting or not, Kyoto Animation again created a show that I simply couldn’t help but love. You could say they yet again used the right formula to make me fall in love with it: cute, lovable characters + believable drama + great animation + STRONG yuri subtext.
Now, even if the yuri part of the show had some obvious flaws, it’s still one of the most enjoyable shows of this whole year.
For the sake of creating a blog that is easier to navigate through, I came up with an idea. Since WordPress’ search function is not always that precise, I need to make it easier to find specific posts. You can either use the categories to search for what you’re looking for or just use the search function in the menu bar. Now, to get you to your desired blog post a little easier, I’m gonna list all of my posts in this list right here. I’ll divide everything into categories and simply list all the posts alphabetically~
