Dakaichi presents pretty much the story you would expect from reading the synopsis. If you get into the characters there's some touching moments and a bit of fun to be had, but this one is a very average anime when judged compared to standard romances. Still, not the worst anime you could watch and the characters are quite fun.
Join Arthifis and myself as we discuss the final episodes of Dakakichi. It has been an awesome collaboration this season and I'm really glad we did it but here is our final post from the Autumn anime season.
Arthifis and Karandi join forces to discuss the latest episodes of Dakaichi. This post covers the events up to episode 8 and we're pleased to dive back into the relationship between Junta and Takato, slightly less pleased to discuss Ayagi.

In fact, my review of it … Continue reading Spiritpact – Bond of the Underworld Series Review: An Improvement In Every Way on Season 1

At a school that for some reason there is a special class with the top seven students in it who hang out in a green house drinking tea all day and here Hikari and Kei challenge each other continuously, but Hikari just can’t seem to beat Kei and it drives her absolutely angry. Review: I've … Continue reading Special A Series Review: Rivals, Friends, More Than Friends?
Why did this have to end? Are we going to get a third season? There is one major advantage of this show running at a slightly different time to Japanese seasonal anime. The season final occurred when most other anime are in a mid-season slump or still getting their momentum, so a final right now … Continue reading Spiritpact – Bond of the Underworld Episode 12: A True Pact
