Just Because Episode 9: Renewed Purpose

Review: There's a sense of movement this episode that has been lacking in this series and that primarily comes across because our three female characters are all actively taking steps to decide what they want and to achieve it. Shame the male characters are still passively waiting for some kind of neon sign, but the … Continue reading Just Because Episode 9: Renewed Purpose

Our Love Has Always Been 10 Centimeters Apart Episode 3

Review: There's not a lot to say about this episode as the relationship between Miou and Haruki hits some rocky ground over the reveal of who Miou's saviour was. Most of the blame for the teen drama lands with Miou but at the same time she was kind of shocked so her poor choices through … Continue reading Our Love Has Always Been 10 Centimeters Apart Episode 3

Recovery of an MMO Junkie Episode 10: And They Lived Happily Ever After

Review: And we come to the end of following these adorable dorks as they slowly stumble their way toward a relationship. It has been a great ride and this final episode tightens its focus around Morioka and Sakurai so while the other characters (both real life and MMO) make brief appearances, the majority of this … Continue reading Recovery of an MMO Junkie Episode 10: And They Lived Happily Ever After

Hitorijime My Hero Series Review: A Reflection on Love

Overview: Masahiro Setagawa was pretty much heading to become a delinquent when he crossed paths with a teacher (who seems to spend his nights beating up punks). Impressed by his strength, Setagawa begs the teacher (and older brother of a class mate) to let him be his underling. Now a high school student, Setagawa has … Continue reading Hitorijime My Hero Series Review: A Reflection on Love

Just Because Episode 8: When You Know The Path is Wrong

Review: The love triangle between Natsume, Komiya and Eita continues with Komiya making her move and asking Eita out on a date (even if it was facilitated by her cat). What is interesting is that Natsume calls Komiya on the point I raised in my last post asking her why she even bothered to ask … Continue reading Just Because Episode 8: When You Know The Path is Wrong

Our Love Has Always Been 10 Centimeters Apart Episode 2

Review: This sleepy romance continues to be pretty adorable even with the slightly over the top coincidence that this episode reveals by its end (so heavily telegraphed you'll see it coming long before the heroine does). Still, it isn't the overall plot that matters so much in a story like this and more the characters … Continue reading Our Love Has Always Been 10 Centimeters Apart Episode 2

Recovery of an MMO Junkie Episode 9: Bringing it Together

Review: After a handful of needless plot complications, MMO Junkie gets back to doing what it did well in the beginning, which is to say there were so many moments this week where I could really understand Morioka. Given this show is apparently only 10 episodes long, as a second last episode this is pretty … Continue reading Recovery of an MMO Junkie Episode 9: Bringing it Together

Netsuzou Trap Series Review: Where Do You Even Begin?

Overview: Yuma and Hotaru are childhood friends and how they both have boyfriends, however Yuma's a little nervous. Hotaru decides to help her out by 'practicing'. How will these relationships develop? Review: There's nothing really new about stories with a focus on high school romance, or even stories that deal with couples, love and lies. … Continue reading Netsuzou Trap Series Review: Where Do You Even Begin?

Tale of the Waning Moon Volume 2 Manga Review

Just a warning to start that the contents of this manga are not suited to everyone containing explicit (and sometimes graphic) sexual non-consensual relationships between male characters. While I have included no images below, the story content will be discussed. My review of Volume 1 can be found here. Review: Well despite the warning there, … Continue reading Tale of the Waning Moon Volume 2 Manga Review

Just Because Episode 7: Just Because You’re Indecisive, Doesn’t Mean You Can Deny Others

Review: Natsume is really annoying me as a character. Okay, Eita is just as indecisive but accepts the consequences of his indecision. He never told Natsume how he felt because he knew she liked Souma (because of some eraser incident that apparently was pivotal in her world despite every flash back we saw this episode … Continue reading Just Because Episode 7: Just Because You’re Indecisive, Doesn’t Mean You Can Deny Others
