Batch #5

Batch posts are posts where I write early impressions on shows I end up dropping or about OVAs, which I can’t write a lot about.

54783lNatsume Yuujinchou: Itsuka Yuki no Hi ni

Takashi Natsume (CV: Hiroshi Kamiya) is able to see demons. One snowy day he sees a demon who is searching for something, but doesn’t know what it’s searching for. Takashi tries to help it, but it’s hard when all he knows it’s something nostalgic, new, sparkling and warm. When the demon finds it, it became a flower and disappeared.

It’s typical to Natsume Yuujinchou and filled me with emotions – as the show always done. I loved this little OVA and when I watched it earlier this spring, it was really fitting. All in all, it’s a lovely OVA which captures the essence of the entire show, music, pacing, story and feelings included. I should write about NatsuYuu in the future.

Kono Danshi series

Kono Danshi series is a series of stand-alone episodes. Rather than writing about one at the time, I figured I should write about both. Be warned though, this post is full of spoilers. But first some general information.

Kono Danshi series is very artistic in a sense of style. It uses the art to show feelings complemented by great voice acting and some musical pieces. Both of the episodes are boys love… kind of. If you watch these, you’ll know what I mean. I guess reading the summaries of the entire episodes could work too.

One again, be warned. Tons of spoilers after the cut! Continue reading

Zone of the Enders 2167: IDOLO

From now on there will be new posts twice a week; Wednesdays and Sundays. Batch posts will as usual come on an irregular basis.

During the public reveal, a demonstration of IDOLO’s powers, Radium catches a UNSF spy and soon after, a group infiltrates to steal IDOLO and kidnap Dr. Rachel Stewart Links (CV: Yoshiko Sakakibara). They also kidnap Dolores Hayes (CV: Houko Kuwashima), Radium’s fiancé, and Radium goes to her rescue. Continue reading

Batch #4

Batch posts a compilation of a few shows I’ve dropped, films, OVAs and Specials that don’t need their own posts.

58145lWizard Barrister: Benmashi Cecil
Cecil Sudou (CV: Rui Tanabe) is the youngest Wizard Barrister in history. She is together with the other at her agency to be attorney’s for fellow wizards. She says it’s to help people, but in fact she wants to save her own mother who is in jail for illegal use of magic.

It seemed pretty okay, but after a while it got a bit confusing and more than anything – boring. I just gave up. (lol)
