Anime of 2012

Image Cred­it: wamochi It’s time to get down to busi­ness in pick­ing some nee­dles out of a haystack. Over­all, I’d say that this was a pret­ty weak year in terms of ani­me, but that isn’t to say there weren’t a hand­ful of series that man­aged to stick out, in both a good and a bad […]

Hyouka 16

I had a feel­ing that Mayaka’s miss­ing man­ga would play a huge part in this mys­tery, but I had no idea that it might very well be the key to con­nect­ing every­thing togeth­er. Hm, I was actu­al­ly sur­prised. On the sub­ject of her favorite dou­jin man­ga, it does look like it harkens back to the […]

Accel World 12

This was a great devel­op­ment episode for Niko, real­iz­ing that rela­tion­ships in the game don’t have to remain the same in real life. Can’t get enough of this yan­gire loli! Too bad we don’t get a clear look at Cher­ry Rook in real life though, just actu­al­ly SEE how close they were in real life. […]

Accel World 11

Damn, Taku went out like a badass.  This episode was pret­ty much all fight­ing with some plot reveals here and there. My biggest gripe is that the episode relied most­ly on shounen clichés. Well, it IS a fight­ing ani­me that feels more shounen than harem (as some peo­ple clas­si­fy it), imo. Kuroyu­ki-hime’s reac­tion to her weakness […]

Accel World 10

So yeah, it’s obvi­ous that Niko is no real ene­my, since it’s revealed that she also wants to hit lev­el 10 and has no attach­ment to the pre­vi­ous king. Good thing too, since her inter­ac­tion with Nega Neb­u­lus is becom­ing one of the more amus­ing things about the show.  When­ev­er you want to spice things up, […]

Accel World 08 & 09

There’s no way my lit­tle sis­ter can be this cute! The sec­ond Red King, Yuniko Kouzu­ki (Scar­let Rain), is intro­duced and she turns out to be a very cute, but most­ly yan­gire, loli. I approve.

Accel World — First impressions

As a part of my ani­me-marathon craze dur­ing the onset of sum­mer vaca­tion, I’m about four episodes into Accel World. So far, the con­cept of escap­ing real­i­ty into a vir­tu­al world isn’t some­thing I haven’t seen before nor is the sto­ry itself impres­sive, but it has a strong start in regards to pre­sent­ing the setting […]
