Gintama – ep 218: Nostalgia’d

Oh wow, an Ikkyu-san reference? Even though Gintama has been known to have shout-outs of a whole bunch of obscure stuffs, it is still kind of a pleasant surprise to see such an old series being mentioned. Good times, I used to really enjoy that series – I even had the VCD set in Chinese dub.

[In-depth Review] Toradora!

[Synopsis] Thanks to the menacing look in his eyes, Ryuuji Takasu has a reputation as a dangerous delinquent in his school… even though he is responsible, generous, and dedicated to house chores. In his same class the petite Taiga Aisaka shares the same reputation, although more justifiably so. When one day Ryuuji accidentally discovers that Taiga has a crush on his friend Kitamura, he also reveals his crush on her friend Minori Kushieda to Taiga as well, and makes the unwitting promise to help her, the most aggressive girl in the school, in her attempt to build a relationship with Kitamura. And thus begins a tale of school life romance and drama, which became easily one of the most popular series of 2008 – and justifiably so. Continue reading

Good :
Less Kamijyo Touma; less exposition, more time for action.
Or fanservice.
More coins railgunning.
(Obligatory) More biri-biri yuri.
More Magic SCIENCE.
More fanservice.

Bad :
I dont like Kuroko’s voice.
No Himegami Aisa; no more one-liners. ;_;
No MISAKA Legion Zerg rush (there never was one to begin with lol)

H2-op

Suzumiya Haruhi: Probably one of those few times where seeing a hurricane of eqautions, references to philosophical notions and scientific theories is actually something to look forward to.

[Sora o Kakeru no Shoujo] 運命の戦い!

lotr

Lord of the Rings! That was definitely a reference to TLOTR Part1 Fellowship of the Ring!

“Nice to see them referencing something else other than Star Wars” was what I wanted to say but…(see p.s. at the end of post — though I think you get what I’m driving at). Oh well, at least they did make a tribute to TLOTR. For that I am happy. Continue reading

[Minami-ke: Okaeri] Ep4 : Banchou Strikes Back

This is just a plain depiction of the manly aura surrounding the Minami sisters, lead by the formidable former Banchou Haruka. Please, do not expect too much. Also, feel free to flex your muscles and yell in a GAR manner  since it’ll probably the only time you get to do so while watching a slice-of-life series.

[ToraDora! Ep14] Minorin’s Duel of Fate

toradora14-minori1

This episode is most enjoyed by those who has read the light novel of ToraDora!, more specifically volume 2 of the novel. In the novel, there is an additional spin-off chapter: a short story featuring a one-shot character’s encounter with Taiga as he seeks for happiness which the Legend of the Palmtop Tiger is said to bring. For various reasons, he didn’t know the actual truth, only vaguely aware of the rumors being passed around. Well, I’ll save the summary of that Spin-Off for later. Continue reading
