Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren — Final Impressions

Come, my friends, ‘Tis not too late to seek a new­er world. Chu­u­niby­ou demo Koi ga Shi­tai! was nev­er an ani­me that I held to a very high stan­dard. Sure, the ani­ma­tion is breath­tak­ing, the char­ac­ters are wacky and lov­able, and I always found each episode to be an over­all enjoy­able expe­ri­ence, but I nev­er […]

Takanashi Rikka Kai: Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Movie

Dark Flame Mas­ter’s Secrets of Kiss­ing 101” O3O You’d think see­ing a Chu­u­niby­ou demo Koi ga Shi­tai! movie would be some­what of a hyper expe­ri­ence. And yet there isn’t real­ly any­thing much to say about this film. I mean, aside from the real­ly amus­ing intro­duc­tion scene with Rikka’s “dream wed­ding”, and of course, the last […]

Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren 06 — WE MAKE PROGRESS!

ARRDGS­GDHFS­DRADSvdVVHD­VS! Alright, a friend spoiled me that some­thing “awe­some and fan­tas­tic” would hap­pened in this week’s episode, so I was already kind of expect­ing some­thing along the lines of a kiss between Yuu­ta and Rik­ka just by tak­ing a wild guess. Still, it was quite a pleas­ant sur­prise regard­less because the large buildup and I […]

Thoughts/Analysis on Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren so far (~Episode 05)

Let the cheek-pinch­ing com­mence! I got­ta say, if there’s any­thing keep­ing me from going insane from my ter­ri­ble, ter­ri­ble Pre-Cal­cu­lus class, it’s watch­ing the con­tin­u­a­tion of our ADHD-filled adven­tures with the “The Sum­mer of Far East Mag­ic Nap Club” when­ev­er I head home every week. Not only is it nice when you’re watch­ing a bunch […]

Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren 01

Jao Shin­gan awak­ens once again! Like its first sea­son, I’m treat­ing Chu­u­niby­ou demo Koi ga Shi­tai! Ren as a nice break from the more seri­ous stuff I’ll be watching/reading this sea­son. That isn’t to say I was­n’t emo­tion­al­ly invest­ed in the first sea­son, but at its heart I think Chuu2 is gen­er­al­ly sup­posed to be […]

Kyoukai no Kanata — Final Impressions

Win­ter Break is over, my next col­lege quar­ter has start­ed, and of course I’ve also fin­ished watch­ing Kyoukai no Kana­ta pri­or to that. I must say that the con­clu­sion of Kyoukai no Kana­ta pret­ty much sealed my opin­ion of the series — that is to say, it has­n’t changed quite much. This post isn’t going […]

Autumn 2013 Anime Leftovers

Image Cred­it: ange­lo (gom­a­hanget­su) from Pix­iv Now that it’s Win­ter Break and I’ve escaped the hec­tic col­lege life for the time being, I can devote more time into the blog. Let’s give a round-of-applause to free time not being eat­en up by the PS3 and Pock­et Mon­sters X! That being said, here’s my updat­ed thoughts […]

Initial Thoughts on Autumn 2013 Anime!

If you fol­low my Twit­ter, you’ll know that I’ve decid­ed to switch to a con­gre­gat­ed post­ing style for the rest of school year to keep my sched­ule from going out of con­trol. School, par­ties, Pock­et Mon­sters X (Japan­ese ver­sion, FC: 4656–6263–1690), and the PS3 all take a sur­pris­ing chunk of my time nowa­days. Ani­me blog­ging? […]

Do I dare watch “Free!”?

OH DEAR GOD WHAT Now, as some of my read­ers might know, I have no prob­lems with watch­ing shows aimed at a more fem­i­nine fan­base. In fact, I love them as much as more testos­terone-rid­­den GAR shows that are on my list (Samu­rai Cham­ploo, Ten­gen Top­pa Gur­ren Lagann, Gao­GaiGar, etc.) But this. This is dif­fer­ent. […]

Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! Extra Episode

I missed dat ass. I final­ly got around to watch­ing the Chuu2 OVA. I must say, I’ve real­ly missed the antics of these delu­sion­al char­ac­ters. Chuu2 was prob­a­bly my per­son­al favorite ani­me of the Fall 2012 sea­son. And Rik­ka is as adork­able as ever.
