I have needed you for a long, long time. You are the one–the only one–I have been searching for.
Come. Stand up and dry your eyes. I will guide you. Leave everything to me…

2016-11-19-162123Sorata Suzuhara (CV: Atsushi Abe) is on a field trip to the Diet Building with his class when something strange happens. He hears the voice of a girl and then a song, but no one else can hear it. Suddenly he’s not there anymore but at a strange place where everything is in monochrome, without the ability to walk and his body is turning cold. But to his rescue comes a pink haired girl. She tells him he’s in the Taishou era and then takes him to a flying ship, when she learns he’s from the future. It turns out the ship is full of espers, the girl being one of them, but just as they are starting to get settled the day after getting on it, there’s an attack… Continue reading

Binan Koukou Chikyuu Boueibu LOVE!

68451lA group of five youths have gathered in an empty club room with a sign saying “Earth Defence Club (lol)” at their school, an all-boys school. One day a pink wombat (CV: Mugihito) appears and makes the five Battle Lovers to protect earth from evil. The Earth Defence Club is made official with their dead teacher as their supervisor. At the same time the student council at Binan Koukou act as the evil with a green hedgehog called Zundar (CV: Hiroki Yasumoto) as their leader.

I’ll keep it short not to spoil the little story this show has. This show, called Cute High Earth Defence Club LOVE in English, is a great mahou shoujo parody that is really funny. It’s sadly unappreciated, but it’s actually a very good show, which is well done and doesn’t take itself seriously. The name of the school – Binan Koukou (translated to Cute High) – is roughly translated to Pretty Boy High School, which in itself just show how it’s not taking itself seriously.

I loved the show, because it’s well made and is spot-on on how it makes fun of mahou shoujo, doesn’t take itself seriously, and doesn’t repeat the exact same jokes every time. It even has a plot twist! I recommend this show to anyone and everyone. The only people that might want to stay clear of it are the people who gets embarrassed when they see boys transform in a really mahou shoujo-ish way. It was totally one of the best things that aired this winter season.

Samurai Flamenco

I realized having two posts a week is too much for me at the moment, so I’m going back to a post once a week. There will however, soon be another thing I’m trying out and I hope you won’t mind it!

Watashi ga Motenai no wa dou Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui!

51619lTomoko Kuroki (CV: Izumi Kitta) is a socially awkward geek who spends a lot of time playing otome games, listening to drama CDs and watching anime. When she is getting into high school she’s certain she’ll be popular, but regardless of what she does, she’s always alone, and the people closest to her doesn’t seem to notice her problems at all.

Watamote (or “However I think about it, it’s your fault I’m not popular!” translated into English and with the official English title WATAMOTE ~ No Matter How I Look At It, It’s You Guys’ Fault I’m Unpopular!~) can be seen in two ways. One is that it’s extremely depressing. Other is that it’s funny as hell. It’s the hit or miss anime of a century. I can see how it’s depressing and how it might seem terrible to laugh at it because Tomoko’s life sucks. Her only friend from middle school doesn’t even realize how much Tomoko struggles. Regardless chances are that you’ll find it awkward, if not at all times, at least once in a while. Continue reading
