Ao Haru Ride: Episode 01 Review

Ao Haru Ride: Episode 01 Review

So far, I have found Ao Haru Ride to be very engaging. I really want for Futaba to be able to right things with Kou, so I find his stubborn mentality to be very frustrating. He seems so nihilistic... This series really seems like it will be very touching - it has been thus far, even one episode in.

Persona 4 the Golden ANIMATION: Episode 02-04 Review

Having watched more episodes, thus far, I am nopersona postert surprised to find that Persona 4 Golden has been made in the image of a slice-of-life comedy. The audience is expected to know who the characters are already, and nearly all the jokes refer back to events in both the original anime and game.

Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun Episode 01 Review

Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun Episode 01 Review

You would assume, from its title and watching the first minute of the show, that Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun would be a something along the lines of your stereotypical shoujo romance anime. And you'd be right, in a sense. Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun does kicks off with our high school girl protagonist, Chiyo Sakura, confessing her feelings for the titular schoolmate Umetaro Nozaki in the typical, blushy-blushy, "oh, I'm so nervous I hope he likes me back" way, but that's about where the shoujo-ness of this series ends. Once Umetaro gives his response to Chiyo's confession, you'll know instantly that Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun isn't going to be at all anything involving shoujo bubbles and sparkles (unironically, anyway).

Persona 4 the Golden ANIMATION: Episode 01 Review

If someone had told me ten years ago that an niche genre video game series combining dating sim and dungeon crawl mechanics would emerge as one of the most-hyped Japanese role-playing game series since Final Fantasy, I would have thought said person was under the influence of some mind-altering substance (alternately I would have begged said person to join my scarcely-attended university anime club that I reigned over, but that’s another story).
