anime recommendations

I copy-pasted this list from one I made in a Discord server I’m in because I figured I ought to share the love for some shows and movies I enjoyed over the past several weeks. This is only a small part of my growing list, but it’s a good place to start for some older shows and ongoing anime this season. Enjoy!

//I’m only picking out a few this season… There’s so much to catch up on plus my huge backlog of good ones from a while back that I gotta settle for a short list. But if you guys want some recommendations, here’s the ongoing ones I’m totally hyped up for, plus some extra guff that I’m actually surprised that I like: 

~Kakegurui - sexy, dark, risque, insane anime about gambling in a very privileged high school.

~Made in Abyss - awesome, beautiful adventure story with a unique world and art style.

~Welcome to the Ballroom - dance sport! bright, gorgeous, well-animated, and has a very optimistic vibe.

~Aho Girl - 12min per episode about the shenanigans of a dumb girl and her childhood friend that has to deal with her shit. very light, absolutely hilarious.

~Hajimete no Gal - fan service up the wazoo but honestly got me intrigued as to what the hell they plan to do with a first episode that silly and stupid… i can’t believe i’m more interested in this than Fate/Apocrypha, and i’m not even a huge fan of… well, fan service. honest.

~New Game!! - second season of New Game!, where they make… well, a new game. for those who don’t know, it follows Suzukaze Aoba, a young character designer fresh out of highschool, who’s working in a game dev studio. first season was pretty fun. also Hifumi is best girl.

for some of the older ones I’ve finished and loved:

-Kyoukai no Kanata - supernatural story set in the modern day. beautifully animated, as is Kyoto Animation’s standard, and has a few interesting twists. be sure to watch the movie AFTER the anime: I’ll Be Here - Mirai-hen

-Saga of Tanya the Evil (Youjo Senki) - surprisingly deep, incredibly well-paced alternate World War I anime that stars a young “Imperial” (alternate world German) girl who rises through the ranks in the Imperial Army… also, there’s magic. It’s got some philosophy in there that’s very interesting, and it doesn’t get bogged down by politics between the universe-next-door fictional factions because that’s in no way the focus of the story OR the world-building. love it, would recommend it to death. great anime for any patriot.

-Tsuki ga Kirei - light, wonderful romance story that takes every imaginable trope in romance and does it beautifully and poignantly. best anime of the previous season. it even beat out AoT and My Hero Academia in some circles. i’ve never felt so fuzzy and warm watching an anime in my life.

Plus, of course, movies like Koe no Katachi and In This Corner of the World. Prepare a lot of tissues and something cute next to you if you’re gonna watch those. //



Sorry, I just found this …. so next year … 

but take a look …  and then ask yourself, 

if I turned my life into a memoir, 

Could it be on this list of life changing books?

Missed Communication (Bucky x Reader)

A/N: Based off of something I messaged @courtneychicken​ at 4 in the morning. Obviously when I have my best ideas. I know I said I would try to include some of my typical slang, but it doesn’t come across as much when I’m writing. I did use the term wicked though. That is an extremely Rhode Islander thing to say. Btw this is all from Bucky’s perspective.

Warnings: I’m a huge nerd. That should be obvious, but just incase you’re new here. Also I have the mouth of a handsome sailor, so language.

Chamber of Secrets - Part 12

Pairing: Bucky x Reader (eventually)

Summary: After the Avenger’s falling out, you were put in charge of putting Bucky together. Under King T’Challa’s orders, you were given a month’s time to create a new arm while simultaneously figure out how to get the triggering memories of his past out of his mind. As the time goes by, you found yourself confiding in him, despite his frozen state.

A/N: This took a while to put out, I’m sorry. I wasn’t feeling the chapter I’ve pre-written so I had to do it all over again. And apologies for the GA reference, I’m a huge McDreamy slut.
