How Long Is The Romantic Anime Drought Going To Last?

Friday's Feature

I miss a story of simple boy meets girl (or you know, boy meets boy, girl meets girl, alien meets time travelling war lord) and they end up thrown together for whatever reason before they grow to fall in love. Something will cause a hiccup in the relationship but they overcome it and we end with a beautiful scene of the two together. Simple. Predictable. Beautiful. Be sure to read the whole post.

Recovery of an MMO Junkie OVA (Episode 11)

Review: Recovery of an MMO Junkie didn't really need this episode and clearly it was aware of it. So rather than pretend to be an 11 episode series, they released this two part add on as an OVA and to be honest that made it easier to swallow. Basically, Morioka and Sakurai are charming and … Continue reading Recovery of an MMO Junkie OVA (Episode 11)

30 Day Anime Challenge: Day 22

I knew we'd get to an easy one eventually and Day 22 gives it to me. Day 22: Favourite romantic couple.

While romance isn't my favourite genre, it has always held a warm spot in my heart as romance done well can really move me emotionally and linger with me well after it is finished. So what are some of the … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: On Romance in Anime
