I picked up Tamako Market because some of the voice actors in it. Without them I might not have watched even though it’s by one of my favorite studios, Kyoto Animation. The show centers around Tamako, eldest daughter of a family who runs a mochi shop. One day she’s walking along and comes across a… Continue reading Tamako Market
Sola is a show I picked randomly while snowed in. I had no expectations going into the show but I saw drama tags and a few others and thought it was going to be a slow meandering show but then there was another tag that caught my attention. Supernatural. Yorito has an unexplained obsession with… Continue reading Sola
After Rolling Girls I thought that all shows with girls and motorcycles would be hot garbage. Well Bakuon!! is here to try to steer it back in the right direction. Bakoun!! is about a group of high school girls who became interested in motorcycles. Sakura Hane is a cheery airhead who is always climbing the… Continue reading Bakuon!!
Custom Maid is about a high school otaku who is “in the closet” about her obsession. The twist is she is from a rich family so she couldn’t show her love of anime/manga and all the culture even if she wanted to. Yuu even keeps her distance from her maids until she ends up being… Continue reading Custom Maid!
I was not planning to watch this show but one day I was sitting at home and caught up on all my shows for the season so I decided to see what this was about. Would you think a bear would know about the outside world? Well Machi does. Machi is a young shrine maiden… Continue reading Girl Meets Bear (Kumamiko)
Love, Chunnibyou & Other Delusions! is a show that gets high marks from many people. It’s a romantic comedy with a heavy emphasis on the comedy side. If you know the quality that Kyoto Animation brings to the table then you know what you’re in for. Season 1 brings us into the story where Yuuta… Continue reading Love, Chunnibyou & Other Delusions! (Chuunibyou Demo Koi Ga Shitai)
The show is about Yuuta, a first year college student. Yuuta has an older sister Yuri and they were orphaned as children. Yuri took it upon herself to raise him on her own at that point. Now years later, Yuri is married and Yuuta is asked to babysit her daughter Hina and two step daughters… Continue reading Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father! (Papa no Iukoto o Kikinasai!)
A lot of you will be familiar with Shuri from her anime this past season. It was a short show at only about 2 minutes but it was a good introduction to Shuri and her friends. You’ll see that the anime came directly from the source material. Since it’s a 4koma, they extend situations to… Continue reading Komori Can’t Decline (Manga)
I watched the first one so definitely had to watch the second. I’m a guy who tries to watch everything in it’s entirety plus it’s a Kyoto show. I like the way that Kyoto works from their employment tactics to the end product. Not many animation studios are like them and if I’m lucky enough… Continue reading K-On!! (Keion!!)
Guess I’m going to read more of Cool’s manga before I get back to writing my own. Who can resist a title with ‘maid dragon’ in it? In the closing of the first chapter, Cool actually tells the story of how this manga came about. I won’t spoil it for you though. I’m sure you’ve… Continue reading Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon
