Batch #10

This batch is the shows I dropped during this winter season. I didn’t pick up all this time, but I think I gave the majority available in Sweden on Wakanim and Crunchyroll (combined) a try.

Boogiepop and Others
An urban legends tells that Boogiepop will relieve you from life, but few knows the truth. One who does know though, is Keiji Takeda (CV: Chiaki Kobayashi) because it turns out his girlfriend has Boogiepop (CV: Aoi Yuuki) sleeping in her subconsciousness, waiting for the abnormalities to show up and to remove them from this world.

This seemed like a good psychological mystery/horror show and I watched a lot of it at once. But then I just got bored after a while and stopped watching. And I guess that says enough.

Size 12 is Not Fat

The Swedish title is “An irresistible desire”.

Heather Wells was a pop idol, but she has fallen far from that fame after her idol boyfriend dumped her, she lost her contract and her mother ran off with all of Heather’s money. Now she lives in an apartment, paying rent by doing bookkeeping for her super sexy landlord, and just recently got a job at a dormitory. But when a female student is found dead in the elevator shaft, Heather can’t believe it’s just a sad accident… Continue reading

Crunchyroll Manga

I was thinking of writing about a book or a comic for this post (although I’m painfully aware that my Amnesia Later review is way overdue). As I was choosing not to decide right then and there and I had some terrible days dealing with depression and panic attacks, it hit me – Let me review Crunchyroll’s Manga service!

The website version of Crunchyroll’s manga service.

Batch #9

It’s all shows I’ve only started from the autumn season of 2018. Most of the season wasn’t very much to my taste, so I didn’t feel like even watching the majority, but I did give a few a try. The next batch is likely going to be another post of started and dropped shows, but I’d like to share a comic batch soon.


Ms. Vampire who lives in my neighborhood.
Akari Amano (CV: Yuu Sasahara) and her friends talk about a ghost story. As they mystery ghost is described as a doll, the doll-crazy Akari decides to look for it. And she finds the vampire Sophie Twilight (CV: Miyu Tomita), and starts living with her because Sophie really looks like a doll.

This show was basically cute girls doing cute things with some girl’s love hints and supernatural elements. Pretty much what you’d expect from that description, I suppose. Continue reading

Happy New Year

Here we are, 5 years after the relaunch of The Anny Blog after a turbulent 2013 when it just seemed to crash and burn. The Annyversary is on Saturday, but I won’t do anything special for it.

Let’s go over the past year though. 2017 I got a child and I spent the end of 2017 and beginning of 2018 focusing on that, to return to The Anny Blog in May again. At the time my child was 7 months old.

I think that was a fairly fast bounce back… maybe? Especially for someone as frail as me.

After that I posted almost every month. I feel like not posting was the biggest mistake in my life, but if I see it from a reader’s perspective, I wouldn’t have blamed any of the bloggers I occasionally read blogs of if they missed a couple of months when they had a child within approximately a year. So I’d say all is good. Continue reading

D.Gray-Man

As the 19th century draws to a close, the end of the world looms. The clan of Noah and the akuma prepare to trigger the Three Days of Darkness. A holy war has raged between the Millennium Earl and the Black Order, an organization formed to save the world.

Our hope lies in a holy weapon called Innocence and those known as Exorcists, who wield it against the Earl’s evil agents.

Allen Walker has an arm with special powers. It can kill “akuma” – a sort of artificial demon – and save the soul that inhibits it. Because of that he has been sent to the Headquarters to become an exorcist by his master, who picked him up after he got cursed by his father, Mana Walker, for turning him to an akuma. Continue reading

Batch #8

First of all! So sorry about missing the monthly post! I was a week behind in my mind and thought I had one more week to write my D.Gray-Man review. (Gosh, Anny! Where’s the spoiler alert?!) But you know, I can’t be the only mum who write reviews of fiction who forgets they need to write a review because childcare takes up all mind power… right?

Anyway, I watch so many shows and read so many titles I never write a proper review of, that I could probably post a batch every 2-3 times a week and still have a monthly post. Maybe I should do that. Maybe I shouldn’t. If I do, I guess you wouldn’t mind the missed monthly post as much… Maybe? Or not? It depends on you prefer quantity over quality? I guess? Wait did I just say my batch posts are bad?!
