watching them is like watching all of my expectations

I finally made it ! Yesterday, I watched Diabolik Lovers with my little sister. In fact, I talked with her about old animes I watched (it was one of them.. geez xD) and she loved it ! I asked her if she liked watching animes, and if she was going to watch more.. And she said yes !

You have to know that my sister wasn’t into anime expect Inazuma in the beginning and Kirby (also Candy & Heidi) ‘cause she didn’t like it. BUT now it’s different. And I intend to show her a lot of animes. I even made a deal wit her. Both of me & my sister can’t talk about our animes with someone (IE for me, and Kirby for her) so I told her that if I would watch Kirby, she has to watch IE. And she said yes again xD Good sis. Very good ! Like that, both of us will be able to talk about them x)

It’ll be cool to watch animes together. She’s so funny with her comments and it was my first time watching animes with someone (except the times for fma with Ran).

MITSU’S TOP TEN ANIME OF 2016

Wow what a shit year! Not for anime, I mean, it was okay at worst. I think we’re definitely at the upward slope of the anime renaissance now, but still at the very start of it. It’s hard to think about that when most of what comes out (and is somehow popular) is just…the most generic shit. Well, I did the work for you. I weeded and trudged through some of the worst anime around and even some of my shit favorites to bring you the actual good, worth watching anime of the year.

Yeah, not everything you saw or want to see on this list is here, but you can check my foreword from last week that explains all that garbage. Links to each anime’s respective review will be on the titles (and added for those that just finished). Know that this list is pretty fluid. From 8 or 7 up, it’s all very much I loved them, but the higher up, the more I recommend anyone watch them.

10. Magical Girl Raising Project

Madoka was cool. I finally watched it this year and I was just as blown away by the psychological aspects as I expected to be. It just lacked that extra bite it needed to really scare my pants off. MGRP however, did indeed take a few years off of my life. I’m really in ruins right now since I can grab you by the shoulders and tell you now: you’ll like a lot of these characters and their thought out designs and personalities, but don’t get attached, cus ALMOST ALL OF THEM DIE.

I have to put MGRP on this list because aside from its fun and original designs, awesome interactions, cool-ass premise and execution (sometimes literally), it had some amazing rewatch value. I watched this anime three times, which is a lot to do in one year. I just had to watch people’s reactions and seeing stuff hidden in the background and revisiting some foreshadowing was so much fun. Definitely worth a watch and I’ll cover more about it in my upcoming review.

9. Orange

Regrets, like I have over not putting Kekkai Sensen into last year’s list, are the main theme of Orange. Buried under the shoujo themes of romance, high school, and angst, lies the actual regret: letting a friend kill himself. The main story unfolds itself very slowly as the group of friends discover that is what they must prevent, but it’s done in a realistic way. The signs of depression and suicide are so jokingly cast aside; it’s no wonder people miss it before it’s too late.

The climax of this story was heart-pounding and gut-wrenching. You find yourself rooting so hard for there to be success, to save someone who may not want to be saved, but must be saved. It might also make you pay closer attention to those around you. It’s an important anime to watch. If you do want one with a little less romantic emphasis though, I recommend you see Colorful instead (or also!).

8. Sweetness and Lightning

I need to marry someone who can cook. It doesn’t have to be a five-star chef, though I wouldn’t complain if it were the case, but Sweetness and Lightning reignited my need to be fed well. The show is about how food brings family and friends together. Aside from the great character interactions, well written children characters, and for god’s sake, the beautiful, perfect looking food, this anime was so pure in the amount of love put into it.

The food tops even some shown in Shokugaki no Soma, purely cus it’s doable for someone with a low skill level (like me), the meals are made for picky eaters (like me), and there’s not a ridiculously emphasis put on the orgasmic nature of food. That’s a thing that Shokugeki no Soma and even Koufuku Graffiti used stylistically in a comedic manner, but it doesn’t fit in Sweetness and Lightning for good reason. This show is accessible in that way, making it easier to show to someone who might want to try anime, but doesn’t want all the sexy fanservice.

7.Drifters

Kick-ass and Metal come to mind when Drifters is mentioned. I love Kohta Hirano’s previous work, Hellsing, a lot. It was a massive gore and blood fest with a sprinkling of comedy in the mix. This is a war and gore fest with a, not a sprinkling of comedy, but more like Hirano accidentally knocked the bottle of comedy over when he was checking on the oven directly into said mix. It’s really funny, but also really awesome. I have a lot to say about it in my review, but I think a dog fight with dragons involved kind of state my case for me. Also Elves, Dwarves and other Tolkien demihumans and monsters abound. It’s fun.

The animation is also gorgeous, especially that stylized, graphic novel looking opening theme with the rock anthem “Gospel of the Throttle” making you “NA NA NA NA NA NA” along with the characters every opening. It’s an excellent show to watch with friends or get yourself pumped. Returning sometime next year!

6. Kuromukuro

How can something be so trope-y, yet so damn enjoyable? Kuromukuro isn’t an original concept, but is done in an original way. The samurai trapped in a machine for 500 years is the new exchange student. The reluctant heroine needs to board the mecha to fight the alien threat. The school festival has been compromised by an alien mecha entering the atmosphere. This anime is funny, but it’s also emotional and holds a much wider scope than I ever could have expected. P.A. Works has been putting out some good contenders in the last few years, and with their lovely art style and well-balanced budget, they were able to pull off this massive mech story in an engaging and entertaining way.

I applaud the cast for one of the best ensembles on this list, bringing forth some of the best and most memorable character chemistry of the season, and some hilarious situational humor. I also cried a little near the end, but honestly, a lot of anime on this list did that to me this year.

5. My Hero Academia

Shonen anime is such a delight now, always a favorite of mine as a kid, but not as firmly as now. I love the underdogs; I love the over the top villains; I love the powers, the fights, and the yelling to infinity. It’s just so exciting and blood pumping, and MHA made it so refreshing with such an interesting spin. These characters are children, inexperienced, with quirks that may or may not be useful. I love Deku because his anxieties and general feelings of being less than everyone else not only make it exciting to see him overcome them, but to use them to keep his head and ego from getting over inflated like some shonen protagonists. Bakugo is such a good foil to him, showing where this could be a major weakness to a shonen protagonist.

Also it’s coming back with THE TOURNAMENT ARC, and if you’re like me and haven’t started the manga yet, DO IT! You won’t regret it! I’m more than excited to see more of this awesome anime in action.

4. Flip Flappers

This anime, wow this anime. I’m so upset not more people are talking about it, but have you seen this delight for the senses? I’m looking forward to reviewing it now just because my jaw is still kinda on the floor. Beautiful animation, a crazy cool style, and some of the best nonsense in magical-girl but not really fight scenes I’ve seen in a while. This anime reminds me of something, but I can’t quite put my thumb on it. I do know it’s like an amalgamation of my editor’s anime “TYPE” so you’ll see more about that in the review.

But good lord did I love the heart of this show. The pure romance, the exciting battles, the trippy psychological horror. Let me just say, that one episode (the Maria Watches Over Us “GOKIGENYO”), probably has scarred me for life, but I love it. It’s just so different and good. It deserves a watch, just for how delighted your eyes will be.

3. Erased (Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi)

I love a story that can get you emotionally invested and cheering for or yelling at the character who you don’t have any control over. Erased was paced beautifully (though some might disagree due to the slight differences in adaptation), and its animation only made every silent, tender moment more enjoyable to look at before the lighting and mood would change and the feeling of bloodlust would stain the air. That’s how you write suspense.

I’m a little annoyed because apparently some other people were reading some character motivations “differently,” (looking at you crunchyroll), but I think it’s safe to say this doesn’t cross the line into romance, at all, and stays a thriller about growing up in a life-threatening situation.

2. Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu

I love the theatre, and I love comedy and storytelling. This anime manages to hit both of these points while showcasing some of the best animation I’ve ever seen. On top of the animation, there’s good directing, and supporting that is a great soundtrack. The story is vast and covers several characters’ lives over several decades surrounding World War 2.

The rakugo, though, is what makes the story. It’s not the first anime to touch on this topic, but it’s the first to do so in such an interesting way. It was very refreshing compared to a lot of titles on this list (though many of them are refreshing ideas!) with its originality. It’s heartfelt, it’s serious, it’s funny, but it also makes me want to cry. If it weren’t for the top spot being so hype as hell and generally a weekly freak-out among me and my friends, this would have been number one.

1. Mob Psycho 100
What can I say about Mob Psycho that hasn’t already been said? Its opening is gold, its animation is unique and interesting, its writing, directing, and characters are all praise-worthy. It is just hands down the best anime of the year. You may be thinking, “but Mitsu, One Punch Man was number one LAST YEAR. Isn’t Mob a little overhyped?”

No. Sit down and shut up. One is probably one of the best writers on the scene right now and is doing a lot better at writing genuinely empathetic characters and commentary on modern anime genres and tropes than most of the big budget barf fests. I think the “overhyped” talk is nonsense when it comes to mob. It genuinely does some interesting and groundbreaking work. That’s why it’s not only on this list, but number one. It never moved an inch since I decided it should be on the list.

Everything I’ve said has BEEN said by several really good reviewers and critics out there and you should definitely check out what they have to say about it too, because honestly, they’re a lot better than I am. I like Mob Psycho, I like One Punch Man, but I like Mob more. I’m so delighted that One Punch Man will be returning shortly and I only wish for Mob to also share the spotlight, as it deserves.

Why I fell in love with Riverdale's cast

Usually when I watch tv shows, I get easily attached to the characters. But when I discover the actors in real life, watch their interviews and stuff, I’m not gonna say I’m disappointed, but I’m kinda sad they aren’t like I imagined them you know? Sometimes I don’t like their personalities, or my otps in the show don’t even get along that well in real life and stuff like that. Usually I fall in love with fictional characters, not the actors behind them. But with Riverdale it’s just so different. The moment I began watching the first episode I just knew I was gonna be obsessed with it. I knew I was gonna love the cast. And then when I watched interviews, they were so much better than my expectations. I loved the actors even more. Every interview shows how genuine they are, how they get along so well and care for each other. They’re all so funny, humble, pure and loving. You can really see the chemistry between them. They actually show that they enjoy working together everyday. I don’t know how to explain it but it felt like I knew them for a very long time. They seem like a family, and they made me feel like I was part of it for some reason. Also the thing that surprised me is that each actor is perfect for his character. I know that it’s supposed to be like that since there’s a casting process and they’re basically looking for the actor who would fit the character well, but it’s insane how they make it feel like they’re actually these characters when they play them and how they don’t seem so different from them in real life (especially since the characters are 75 years old and well-known, so it’s not that easy). There’s a part of Betty in Lili, a part of Veronica in Camila…
I don’t know if you guys feel this way too, maybe it sounds weird and not very clear, but that’s how I feel. And to make a person feel all of this just in a few interviews (because the show just began so we don’t know that much about them after all), is pretty special.
To conclude all of these messy thoughts, I think I’m just gonna say that I’m so grateful for this lovely cast. They’re already gaining so much audience, fans, recognition…and I couldn’t be happier because they truly deserve it.

Seriously don’t know what’s funnier. Ikoma getting thrown onto the train, or him being cradled in Suzuki’s arms as Ayame shakes her head and smiles.

anonymous asked:

I'm super excited for your ECCC feedback. I feel like now you're going to be extra cautious of reading too much into things so I'm curious to see what you think. I've never met them but think their spark will still be there. People said it was palpable at the Apple & London events. I doubt all those people were just high on JamClait love. I'm sure most of it had to do w/ Sam and Caitriona themselves and I think it may cause different opinions regarding MM even taking into account last weekend.

I hope I’m able to look at all of it objectively. I definitely feel like my shipper goggles are not on at the moment so we’ll see. It’s funny, though, I went to the Apple event last year and it was like 3ish months after the IFH so I’m not sure what I was expecting and, in all honesty, it was not a shippery event at all. That being said. Just watching Sam and Cait in person and watching how they watched each other, how they reacted to each other, how they looked at each other, how completely in sync they were with each other….it was all so completely natural that I was a bit blown away. They absolutely have some sort of aura about them that just screams couple…or at least togetherness. And I’ve continued to say that with and without my shipper goggles on. soooo we shall seeeeee. I’d hate to get in the middle of what they have. I’ll say that forever and ever amen.

#15 in the shipper meme

15: Have you ever “shipped at first sight”?

Okay, so I don’t usually because I love to watch interactions and all the rest of it BUT I shipped Richonne at first sight.

I didn’t expect to, even though I knew Michonne was going to meet up with Team Prison in S3; I just wanted to see more of her on my screen and watch her become one of them. Yet, when she and Rick met at the fence, I was like, “Ship it!” because I am trash.

And now *wipes away a single, solitary teardrop from my face* look at them! Out here setting the standard for healthy, loving, progressive, consensual, grown-up relationships on TV *sighs*

Thank you @rae2021!

So today my exams ended and I went to the most pretentious independent cafe I could find and watched Netflix for a couple of hours. In that time I took these selfies where I am completely out of it and have a serious case of meanface. Anyway the hell is over and I’m alive but like….barely. Time to watch the 100 and lose my last shred of sanity kcoolbye!

Tag me in your selfies so I can see your pretty, hopefully less exhausted faces!

I started watching this show called skam after I saw the trailer for s4..after seeing a hijabi WOC being portrayed on tv i was shook tbh. As a hijabi woc, I really did not expect that at allll…like at all my jaw was literally hanginggg! sana is my fave character because I can relate to everything she’s been through but I'm really disappointed in how this season has handled her storyline. during this hiatus, i watched s1-s3 and was shocked that each character had so much storyline to them and they were given so much screen time. I’m even more shocked that this theme of main character screen time wasn't carried over to sanas season. I haven't been able to see sana actually finish her salah. I haven’t seen her even pick up a Quran and read it. I haven’t even seen her step inside the masjid…I just feel like the other characters (who I love except vilde) have had 3 seasons to develop their character and storyline but were stuck with the same abuse towards sana. anyways I really was hopeful for positive representation and a great storyline. I love iman meskini and hope she gets more amazing opportunities to represent hijabi’s on screen. 

Rainy Day - NCT Lee Taeyong

[ Y/N’s P.O.V. ]

Out of all the days! OUT OF ALL THE DAYS! Out of all the days, today was the one day I forgot to bring my keys. It couldn’t be a windy day or sunny day or even snowy day? It had to be on a rainy day? I swear, I’m secretly cursed to be stuck on a rainy day. Mother nature’s probably laughing at me right now.

I don’t hate the rain, it’s honestly one of my favourite weathers, but being stuck outside without an umbrella sucks, a lot.

I texted, of course, my parents in hopes that one of them will be back soon with keys, but both of them will be back home late due to meetings. Immediately after that, I hopelessly sat on the stairway that lead to my front door. It was a good thing that it had a cover at the top to protect me from the rain, or else I’ll be wet.

As I hugged my legs together and stared at my school shoes, I saw another pair of shoes in front of me. I looked up and saw that it was none other than my school’s popular bad boy, also known as my neighbour - Lee Taeyong. He was still in his uniform and he had another umbrella in his hand.

In all honesty, I’ve never actually talked to him much. The closest thing I got to an interaction with him was probably a stare. It’s not that he isn’t friendly or mean, it’s just that I didn’t bother interacting with him because of his reputation and he doesn’t seem that friendly. He’s never smiled at me before too. He isn’t called the school’s bad boy for nothing.

“Forgot your keys?” Taeyong asked as he held an umbrella and looked at me with glistering eyes.

I just nodded my head and sigh lightly.

“Come to my house then,” Taeyong offered, making me shock for a moment.

I immediately shook my head, not wanting to go to some guy’s house that I barely know.

“It wasn’t an offer,” Taeyong said. “You’ll be freezing outside here and the rain isn’t going to stop anytime soon. Just come to my house before you fall sick.”

“But-”

“I won’t do anything to you,” Taeyong said and rolled his eyes before giving me his umbrella. “I might be a bad student, but I’m not some kind of perverted guy.”

I took the umbrella and unwillingly followed him. It’s like I didn’t have a choice.

* * *

“Make yourself at home,” Taeyong said as he took out his coat. “I’m going up to change a while.”

I nodded and sat on his sofa after placing my school bag down. I looked around his house and it isn’t much different from mine except for the colour scheme. My house had a white colour scheme, making it look bright and clean. His was more of a black colour scheme. It made his house look edgy and urban. Kind of like him?

Before I could make the decision of examining the pictures on the walls, he came down and threw me a pair of shirt and shorts.

“It’s my sister’s,” Taeyong said and headed for the kitchen. “Just go up to my room and change there. I’ll be in the kitchen. Go up, turn right, first door on your left.”

“I don’t need to change tho, I’ll just wear my uniform,” I said and gently placed his sister’s clothes on the coffee table.

“If you’re going to be in my house, you’re not going to wear a skirt,” Taeyong said. “It won’t be a good thing when my parents come home and see you in your short skirt.”

I looked at my skirt and immediately covered it as he came out from the kitchen empty handed.

“Excuse you, I never asked to come to your house. Secondly, you gave me shorts. It’s just the same as a skirt,” I protested but not in a loud voice.

“Fine, I’ll give you long pants then, geez,” Taeyong said and rolled his eyes before going up the stairs. “Aren’t you coming?”

I took his sister’s clothes and followed him up to the room.

* * *

After changing and settling down in the living room, the both of us were quietly drinking the hot chocolate that Taeyong made while I was changing my clothes. Who knew he was a hot chocolate kind of guy?

In all honesty, I didn’t like staying here and secretly wished that my parents came home quicker. Although the hot chocolate is pretty nice. There are even marshmallows and whipped cream!

Taeyong was casually switching on the television and began to switch channels until he came across an animation that caught his attention - Whisper of The Heart.

Whisper of The Heart? Lee Taeyong, my school’s bad boy, watches Whisper of The Heart!? Impossible!

But he did watch it.

“You watch Ghibli Studio movies?” I asked in amazement and he just nods with no other emotion displayed on his face.

Whisper of The Heart is one of my favourite Ghibli Studio movies ever. It’s so cliche but I still love it.

In between the movie, there was a little more interaction between us. “I love watching Ghibli Studio movies since I was a little kid.”

I was surprised by his words, but my heart melted a little.

“This is one of my all-time favourites,” I said softly that was loud enough for him to hear.

“Really?” Taeyong asked suddenly losing his cool-ness.

I nodded and he smiled. “It’s embarrassing for me to confess, but this is my favourite too.”

As the movie continued, the two of us somehow managed to create a decent conversation about the movie which made us laugh in between. It was definitely not what I expected him to be, especially with his image.

“It’s amazing how a bad boy like you would like this kind of movies,” I said with a faint giggle.

“Well, I might be a rebel, but that doesn’t mean I can’t like watching my childhood movies. I grew up watching them,” Taeyong replied. “And I’m not as bad as you think.”

“Hmm? Highly unbelievable,” I said with a slight shook. “You insulted Mr. Choi in front of the whole class, Lee Taeyong, you chewed gum in school and you have your name written almost all the school prefects’ books. Tell me how are you not bad?”

Taeyong just laughed and shook his head. “Well, I’ve never actually bullied anyone, I’ve never kissed a girl before and I’ve never even had sex with anyone before. I think I’m pretty good for a bad boy.”

“You? Never had sex before? Impossible,” I said in disbelief.

“Like I’ve said. I might be bad, but I’m not a playboy,” Taeyong said.

“And you’ve never kissed a girl? That’s sad,” I said to him.

“You’ve never kissed a boy,” Taeyong said with a smirk plastered on his face.

“How would you even know that?” I said to him with an unimpressed expression.

“You’re way too good to kiss a boy. I bet you’ve never even dated before,” Taeyong said and pushed my hair back - making me fluster a little.

I couldn’t defend myself this time since Taeyong actually had a point. I’ve never dated anyone nor have I kissed anyone.

“W-w-well, at least I’m good,” I said not knowing what else to say, but not wanting to lower my ego.

Taeyong laughed and pushed my hair back. “You’re so cute when you’re flustered.”

I didn’t move and gazed at into his eyes. His eyes are so mesmerizing. Like there was another galaxy inside it.

“Like what you see?” Taeyong asked with a slight smile making me push him away and face the television.

“Puh-lease! Park Bogum is more of my ideal type than you,” I said with a huff.

“You’re so cute when you’re angry,” Taeyong said with a laugh. “Don’t get flustered. I know I’m very good-looking.”

“Show off,” I mumbled.

Taeyong laughed again and said: “Well, you’re quite pretty yourself.”

“You don’t have to say that to make me feel better,” I said and rolled my eyes.

“But you do! All the boys in our class say that ” Taeyong said.

My face became slightly redder, making me cover my cheeks with my hands.

“Stop making me feel like this,” I said. “It’s rude.”

Taeyong laughed again making me feel frustrated.

“Yah! Stop laugh!” I scolded him.

“Do you want to go out? It’s still raining,” Taeyong said. “It might cool you down.”

I rolled my eyes and actually stood up. “You know, since you’ve mentioned it, I might as well just go out in the rain. It’s better than being in here with you.”

I took my bag and walked towards the door but before I could touch the handle, Taeyong grabbed my wrist and pulled me away from the door.

“Yah! Let me go.”

“I was just kidding, Y/F/N. I don’t want you to get sick,” Taeyong said.

“Why would you even care?” I said to him and crossed my arms while tapping my feet after making him let go of my wrist and faced him.

“Because…”

Taeyong then moved closer to me.

“I…”

He then harassed my cheeks.

“Like…”

His face then moved closer to my face as he stared into my eyes.

“You.”

But before he could place his lips on mine, I placed my index finger on his lips and smirked lightly.

“Well, then prove in a way that will make me believe you because kissing isn’t going to make that happen.”

anonymous asked:

prompt? Will kissing Hannibal's bruised knuckles ?

“You’re hurt,” Will whispered, lifting Hannibal’s hand to his lips. He pressed a single kiss to the blood pooling there.

“Was this not what you desired?”

Will smiled, dark and full of teeth. “He got away. What did you expect me to do?” Will punctuated his words with another kiss, licking copper from his lips.

Hannibal’s eyes shone, proud and dangerous. Another kiss to his hand sent the beast shivering in the dark. He let out a broken little sound. “You like to watch me fight.”

Will grazed the last knuckle with his lips. “And you like it when I watch you.” One last kiss. Will lowered Hannibal’s hand back into his lap. “All better?”

“Not entirely. My lips have grown quite sore, as well.”

“I’d better not kiss them, then. I wouldn’t want to make it worse.”

Hannibal gripped Will by the nape, pulling him close. “I’m afraid your kiss is the only cure.”

Will smirked and let Hannibal pull him in for the softest of kisses. When they parted, Hannibal’s smile illuminated the dark.

“Better now?”

Hannibal narrowed his eyes and held Will closer. “I’m afraid you’ve only made me ache all over.”

“Oh,” Will purred, melting into the touch, “now what’s to be done about that?”

Spring Season | Final Impression

Spring Season is really over. I still remember how much I was waiting for this season and how I couldn’t wait anymore and now it’s really over. I have to say that the season was just as great as I expected it to be. So many great shows, so many suprises and yes some of my favorite anime were in this season. Since Winter 2013 I was following every season and this might not have been the best one but definetly the season I was looking forward to the most.

Hibike! Euphonium

And to start with my most favorite Hibike Euphonium was my number 1 of the season. Hibike was one of the shows I definetly wanted to watch since it’s from Kyoani but to be honest I didn’t expected much. I kinda expected something similair to K-On but rather bad. I also have to say that even though I like Kyoani I wasn’t really happy about their latest anime.

I mean what did we got ? Amagi Brilliant Park was nice but turned kinda okayish in the second half. Free… is Free, the second season of Chuunibyou sucked hard, Kyoukai No Kanata was okay, Tamako Market’s movie was better then the anime and yeah then we have the first season of Chuunibyou which I really liked. So it has been years since the last show I really really liked from Kyoani. So of course I didn’t had high expectations. But luckily I got suprised. Not only is it way different then K-On it ended up being a masterpiece.

First an anime about a bandclub is something which rarely happens and I think this is also the first anime about brass instruments. What I really liked about this show was the pretty realistic potrayal of the band. The personalities of the characters were really good and also rather unique. Sure you usually get stereotype characters in Kyoani anime but this time it was different. Every character was important and unique. Be it main character or only a side character. Also good to see was that they all had more sides to their personalities which many characters lack mostly. With Kumiko as the main character she definetly is one of my all time favorite character.

Her personal struggle, her attitude really everything was great. Let me not even start to talk about Reina.

The plot was really good. I expected a light plot for this anime and yes it kinda is at times but overall it can get pretty dramatic and shows us that life can be pretty hard. If you wanna make good music you have to work hard and even this is not enough sometimes as someone else can still be better then you. Here I have to praise Kyoani again. The love in the details. The way they are potraying the characters practicing was brilliant. The characters are practicing. Practicing at lunch, at home, at night basically when ever they can to improve.

The soundtrack of this anime was amazing too. The music was beautiful and even for some one who has no idea about music you could tell if someone was playing an instrument better then someone else even if it was only slightly better. Again the love in the details. You could hear every little mistake they made or if they improved and seriously I could talk the whole day about how great the musical aspect of this anime is.

Since it’s Kyoani of course I expected good no great animation. But holy cow this was beyond good. I think this is their best work in terms of animation and it was easily on movie level and definetly not something they would usually show on TV. The freaking love in the details lol. The way the water is animated, crickets, scenaries, body language everything works damn good.

Before I forget. Many people actually only watch the show because of Kumiko and Reina. Since Kyoani likes to show them together and makes the viewer feel the yuri between them . But honestly this is definetly not the reason why you should watch the anime. Watch it because it’s a masterpiece.

(the relationship between Kumiko and Reina is just a plus lol).

So yes definetly my favorite anime of the season.

Actually I planned to write only short opinions about the anime but this was kinda long lol.

Plastic Memories

If I would describe Plastic Memories in two words then it would be wasted potential. Now I don’t say Plastic Memories is bad. I actually really enjoyed it but the wasted potential is a fact you can’t ignore because it could have been so much better. The problem I had with Plastic Memories is that it didn’t know what it want to be. A story about the future and how androids would work in our society ? Something similair to Eve no Jikan ? etc etc. but Plastic Memories ended up chosing the weirdest route. The romance route. Now after the first episodes you would expect something way different. Sure I saw it coming a romance between them but dayum the whole setting didn’t mattered at all in the second half. The whole focus changed to the romance between them and this was something I found really dissapointing because Plastic Memories had the chance to be a very impressive anime. This way it’s still good and a cute story but far away from being as good as it could be.

Arslan Senki

Look I really want to like this but I can’t. I don’t know if my expectations were just too high or something else but it is very hard to make myself watch the latest episode every week. But when I’m actually watching it it’s not like I dislike it. I just find it very boring and incredibly slow paced. Let me quote ANN “The Heroic Legend of Arslan continues to be a bizarre mix of strengths and faults.” and this is exactly what I would say too. The concept is good, the story is interesting and the setting is nice too but so far it’s just not really exciting. The story is pretty similair to Akatsuki no Yona which I actually really enjoyed. Overall not a bad show but I do hope the second half gets better.

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo

Yamada was just the way I expected it to be. A decent anime which is fun to watch. Not more not less. I kinda liked the concept and general idea of the anime. It’s unique and I honestly wouldn’t mind another season. I heard the manga is better though so let’s see maybe I read it.

Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works 2nd Season

I say it again. I don’t understand what’s so great about this anime. The animation is awesome but I found the story rather boring and the only characters who are actually cool are Lancer and Saber. That’s it. But oh well I’m finally done with this anime. (That opening though. Epic as hell.)

Re-Kan!

Another decent anime. I don’t really have much to say about this one. You won’t miss anything if you don’t watch it but I’m happy I did. It had some great episodes and overall managed to be a nice anime.

My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!

This was one of the anime I have been waiting for in the Spring Season. I really liked season 1 so I expected this season to be just as good but I was wrong. This season is so much better then the first season that I started loving the whole series. This is after Hibike my favorite anime of the season. But why is this season so much better then season 1 ? First the animation. Now that I compare both seasons I realize how much better the new animation is. Every character looks better then before and also the general animation is more fluid and more detailed. The other aspect is the story. Some people were saying it’s too dramatic but I really enjoyed the drama. I liked the development of the characters and how their relationship kept changing. The ending was kinda mean lol so I hope we get more at one point but this anime really impressed me overall.

Danmachi

It’s all about Hestia. I think the most people know how much hype Hestia made in Japan and in the internet. Everyone loves Hestia but what about the anime itself ? It’s decent. At first I expected it to be a Sao clone. Sure it has nothing to do with gaming but the whole dungeon thing kinda reminded me of Sao. But it stands on its own feet and was an entertaining anime. Definetly wouldn’t mind another season.

Shokugeki no Souma

Not gonna lie I can’t believe how much I love this anime. I love it so much I actually started buying the manga for it. It’s entertaining, it has great characters and it keeps making you hungry lol. I’m gonna write more about it when it’s actually finished though. But so far fantastic.

Nisekoi

Very very very dissapointing. I know that Nisekoi barely moves forward with the plot. Obviously otherwise it would have ended ages ago. And I actually don’t really mind those random chapters/episodes but this season was very boring. The whole season was a filler and a bunch of random episodes. And again I don’t really mind usually but the episodes weren’t really good either. First I don’t really like Chitoge so the episodes with her were okayish and there were quite a lot of episodes foccused on her. And the characters I actually like Marika, Tsugumi and Onodera didn’t really got that much screentime. I also had high expectations on Haru but she’s not really that great either.

Overall a very dissapointing and random season.

Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken 2 Sure-me

Just as random as Nisekoi was the second season of Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken 2 Sure-me. But if you liked the first season you will like this season too. I’m sad we didn’t got to see the baby though so bring on the third season.

Punchline

Wow. The hell happened to this anime in the second half ? It suddenly started getting pretty good. Something I wouldn’t expect at all from the first few episodes. I mean it’s not like I enjoyed this anime a lot but it did got quite interesting in the second half and was actually worth watching. So if you dropped this anime after the first episodes you could give it another try. It’s not that bad actually.

Kyoukai no Rinne

I love Rumiko and I liked all her shows so far and Rinne is also one of them. The beginning was kinda weird (okay all Rumiko anime and manga are weird) but now after 12 episodes I’m really enjoying this anime as it’s really typical Rumiko. The characters and the dialogs are just as absurd as you would expect it and that’s what I want to see.

Ore Monogatari!!

Suprised Madhouse picked a romance anime . But what is not suprising is that the show is really good. Very entertaining and kinda different romance story. But just like Soma I’m going to write more about this after it’s finished.

Kekkai Sensen

Why is the whole Gintama cast (voice actors) in this anime ? After watching the first few episodes I know why. Because the characters are also a bunch of weirdos. And that’s the strongest part of Kekkai. The crazy characters are just hilarious. Specially Zapp is great. In every episode you will see the characters being in crazy situations and everytime when the City is exploding you keep wondering why the hell does anyone live there. The anime is still not finished since the last episode got delayed so I’m still waiting for it. For everyone else who didn’t watched this. This anime is pure entertaiment.

Owari no Seraph

It can’t get more generic then Owari no Seraph. But being generic doesn’t mean it’s bad. It just means it’s very predictable and has elements you saw in different shows already. So basically to stand out it needs to have something unique. It doesn’t actually lol but it’s still not a bad anime. I can see why people would love this but I’m not the biggest fan of this show. Still kept me interested enough to make me want to watch season 2.

Assassination Classroom

I’m really sad actually that this anime ended. It was a great anime and stayed good till the end. It had some good character development, it’s funny and the anime overall is unique. Can’t wait for the new season in the Winter Season. I’m not sure if I can wait this long though so I might start the manga soon.

Gintama

My favorite anime returned do I even have to say something ?

Next week Shinigami Arc. Do I even have to say something ?

Top 10 animated shows of 2015

This year’s been pretty great for animated shows with older shows doing their best eps yet and newer shows showing they have legs, We’ve also seen some great stuff brought to other regions like Ladybug and tons of anime. Some shows have left my favor but for the most part I think it’s been a really great year. Before we begin honorable mentions to Yokai Watch, Miraculous Ladybug, and Bob’s Burgers since they all make me laugh and I enjoy them all to varying degrees.

Clarence: This is a pretty simple show about kids who’s parents should be watching them more closely doing crazy stupid stuff. It’s really real lifeish while being cute and funny the whole time. Clarence is a sunny optimist and the cast around him are mostly pretty likeable as they fill their roles. I feel like it’s a more charming Ed, Edd and Eddy.

We Bear Bears: I didn’t think a show about three Bears would be near my favorites this year but here are three bears that I adore. The show feels very much in tune with modern culture and doesn’t really seem to be judging it as much as just using it. The world feels very much like the world of us 20 somethings and show manages despite being about ears to have a very diverse set of human characters. It’s a show that feels very of it’s time and I think that might give it some major nostalgic value in the future too.

Gravity Falls: The show is reaching it’s close but I’ve loved it while it was going on. I cosplayed Mabel, my girlfriend was dipper, we have a lot of Gravity Falls stuff, I think it’s just an awesomely charming series. The sense of mystery has been great in it and the character development has been shocking for the kind of show I thought it would be. I really like how this show keeps moving forward with a real ending in mind and it has a very realized world that I’ll be happy to step into again in the future if ever given a chance.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012 series):  I had  watched a few episodes in the past with my little brother but I never really watched this show. I can’t remember why but my girlfriend and I ended up watching some random episodes on TV and enjoyed it. So we watched more, then we decided we were going to watch it all from the start and now we are up to date.  Turtles going to space has been cool and I like the characters were given. I got some feminist issues with the thing, April is although better here then ever still often the damsel and despite her having Ninja training is show as less capable often than Casey Jones who has no training at all. Still at least here she has some powers and gets to be a Ninja that’s more than other animated series at the leat for this franchise. Also the lack of other female characters in any long lasting way sucks, if Casey can become a staple Idk why some other female badass couldn’t too (or #TransCasey make it happen). Anyway in generally I really love the comedy and stories the show is telling. They are really fun and this take on the Turtles world is by far my favorite i’ve seen (although I’m interested in seeing the comics universe as well).

Rick and Morty: This is the most “adult” thing on the list I think. Rick and Morty is just sooo freaking funny and while it’s episodes are mostly individual stories I find myself very invested in the characters. Rick and Morty are both very interesting and have wonderful chemistry. Summer also stepped up in a big way this season making for another really cool character to follow here.

Star Vs the Forces of Evil: This show was a surprise hit from me although I was super excited since I saw the opening on tumblr.  The shows totally lived up to my expectations and gone past them. This show is so charming, funny and original. It feels like the perfect show for Disney to release.

  Adventure Time: With the Stakes Special airing I had the best episodes of Adventure Time I’ve ever watched play before my eyes. The other episodes outside of this special have also been really good and totally inspired me to watch all the chunks in the middle i’m missing. The more I watch the more i’m a fan.  It is great seeing Princess BubbleGum and Marceline both gain a lot of character development this season.

  Kill la Kill: I would have lost my way if I never watched Kill La Kill. This year saw it’s dubbed release and it’s my first exposure to the show. It is wonderful and wacky in every way. It does have some male gaze issues but with how funny the show is and how bad ass the characters are I can get past the #OtakuMoney stuff they do in the show. Most the fan service is keep to the core clothing thing and I do like the discussion of the role we give clothings. The action and characters here are brilliant Mako, Satisuke and Ryuko are still in my head months after watching this show.

Legend of Korra: This one is this lists cheat since the show ended in 2014 but I had only watched two episodes before this year. I binged the whole thing early on in the year and I loved almost every second of it. A weak season two is my only flaw with it but that is negated by just how awesome everything else is. The drama here is handled in a great way, there is a huge sense of importance in what’s going on, the world building is great, the characters are my personal favorite part.  I also wanted to note I watched all of last Air Bender this year that is too old to justify putting on this list but I will say it would be on this list if it could be and it be high up here.

Steven Universe: When I first saw Steven Universe I feel in love with the musical score and went hunting down the music. From there I started to watch more episodes and then I watched every episode, then I became a major fans then Jailbreak aired and I became a hard core fan who just adores this series. The comedy is great, voice acting is fantastic, diversity of all kinds is here, the action is animated wonderfully, the writing is brilliant. Nothing about this show doesn’t stand out as great except how bad they seem to be at scheduling since this show goes on more breaks then the French. Seriously I adore this show, it might not be for people who like gritty stuff but this is an amazing show that I only ever want more of.

anonymous asked:

I'm like more excited and happy for YOU for tonights Ed/Jervis than myself enjoyment for it lol. like I wanna sit and watch you watch the scenes. you're a delightful lovely positive sass muffin and very needed in this fandom!

oh my gosh????? I mean to give you a little insight, I will most likely (depending on how their scenes go) gasp, clasp my hands over my mouth, clap my hands together, let out a little “yay!” as a I clap my hands together, mutter “oh my god” under my breath, go “ahhhhh” and flail a little, etc. it could easily be one of those reactions, a mixture of them, or all of them.

I’m just so excited??? I wasn’t even expecting to actually get any kind of scene(s) with them so it could be 5 seconds worth and I’d still be super happy with it ^_^ and then my bucket list of who I want ed to interact with only has fish and jonathan on it??? and technically he’s interacted with fish (in 3x20) I guess asdfghjkl

also “lovely positive sass muffin“ might possibly be one of the best things ever said to/about me???? thank you so much, anon! this fandom needs people like you, people who use the anonymous feature to send lovely, positive messages ^_^

antiisepticeye  asked:

I just watched your musically video and I don't think you were cringy at all! :) And you'd give an awesome fem!warfstache :D

I’m so happy you think that, thank you so much!
I already asked on the group of Naples comics convention if some of them would enjoy meeting me as Warf, but it seems like nobody knows how he is (and I understand it, we’re in Italy after all, but I still expected someone… I mean, I know at least three people in real like who know/watch Mark)

But anyway my bestfriend (who also likes Mark and is always my partner when I do couple cosplays) supports me and thinks I should do it even if people don’t recognize me, so I’m probably gonna do it anyway. After all what matters is having fun!

I watched Teen titans: Judas Contract and O. M. G I was NOT ready for all that! Lot of intensity that I didn’t expect because I’d only watched the original series, but I still loved it! I didn’t like Tara’s character as much as in the original, but she helped defeat evil so she’s cool lol. Now I have to watch “Teen Titans vs Justice League” (which came out before JC) and then I think I’ll be satisfied. Btw, BB and Damian are my boys! THEY ARE SO KICK ASS! I love them! Damian is a JA but he’s incredible and he’s my JA
