    Dub or Sub? My take on the most debated question!

    Is this really the most debated question in the anime community? not sure, but it’s been asked few times already and people have given their opinion about it. But I think I haven’t (not in TL;DR format anyways) so here we are, giving you my two cents over this whole which do you prefer question! Now, if you ask me which I really, REALLY prefer?! Then I can honestly say that I prefer subbed version—not only it helps me get—

    Spring 2017 Anime First Impression!

    OK, I think it’s safe to assume that I may not be watching Sakura Reset and Tsuki ga Kirei anymore…honestly I have little to no motivation to watch anime these days,  with the exemption of the anime I religiously follow like Boku no Hero Academia and Shingeki no Kyoujin, for the others well, they’re pretty OK. And before I babble like a mad woman again I’m gonna dive into this seasonal  anime impression which I kept postponing writing for reason—

    Winter 2017 Wrap-up! (+ Spring ’17 Watch List)

    Time to wrap-up things, people! I must say that in entirety, this season was pretty slow. I have favorites but NGL I have never dropped so many series as fast as I have for this season. Says so much how I loathed some of them (OK, two of them to be more precise!). Ah…let’s get the show rolling~ 1. 3-gatsu no Lion – aw~ I guess my favorite parts of the series won’t be included but that’s OK! If I—

    The boys who fell too hard!

    Male love interests falling in love first is one of those tropes that can easily convince me to try the manga (romance wise). I think I already mentioned it here how I immediately fall in love with stories if the main male love interest is the first one to fall. I don’t know why, in many stories, the way he struggles just to get the affection of his otherwise naïve apple of the eye is just so interesting. Plus, this—

    Favorite Love Triangles!

    First Happy Single Awareness Day, er Happy Valentine’s Day!  We’re gonna talk about my love (and hate) with love triangles! But mostly love! You ask: is that even possible, you love the three people in the love triangle? Why of course! I don’t hide the fact that I love the drama brought by love triangle. I know A LOT of people are put off by this romantic device. But not me! This rare breed is actually like the drama it—

    Winter 2017 Anime First Impression!

    It’s that time again. I usually wait for at least 4-5 episodes before I give first impressions but I decided to change that and give my verdict (lol verdict!) after the premiere or first two eps. Why? Because my first impression and wrap-up are too close for comfort! >.< So I decided why not change it! And besides it’s called first impression! So it should live up to the title! LOL Anyway, there’s nothing really WOW me, I mean there—

    Do you outgrow your reading choices?

    So do you? Actually my topic is broader; it caters to our fannish tastes (not just reading choices)! Like have you tried reading/watching an old series remembering it so fondly because of your emotional attachment, then only to find out that the sparks you and this series shared was long gone. It was nothing more than fleeting entertainment now—sometimes an embarrassing fangirl moment you want to deny (OK that was extreme; I’m not in that point yet!) Well not really—

    Onward Twenty Seventeen!

    I need to confess: while I do look forward to my winter list, I’m not that super excited (so maybe I am for Gintama but that’s given!) But I don’t consider those as a signs of things to come. In fact I’m still hopeful that some of the manga series I’m wishing hard to get green-lit will still get it (I got one of the 5 wishlists, and that saying something!) And I’m also open to trying new or originals—

    Best of the Best 2016!

    Last year (the time when my blog was experiencing some sort of identity crisis ), I temporarily replaced this feature of mine to “Fave Picks From this Mix” because I still did some book reading last year and I was in a sort of a limbo of how should I label everything. But I finally sorted it out and I think my original feature objective still fit the idea (not without alteration!) that I was concocting for this year. And—

    Fall 2016 Wrap-up! (+ Winter ’17 Watch List)

    Ah, it feels like the three months just flew by and here I am jotting down my last impression of the anime I’ve watched this fall!  It was fairly good line-up despite how messed up the schedule for me (everything was stuck in the weekends!) Of course, I dropped one show (sorry Bloodivores, I just totally forgot and the lack of motivation didn’t help at all). I also didn’t try the two of the series I thought I’ll try! 1.—

    On Spotlight: Boku no Hero Academia

    On Spotlight: A special post where I feature some of my favorite reads! Apart from my occasional “great rec post!” I’m also keen on giving full or in-depth post on series: may it graphic novels or in the future books that I truly loved. And perhaps you might pick this up and read it, too! Expect Boku no Hero Academia 『僕のヒーローアカデミア』 to be part of this year’s Best of the Best.  Because it is pretty obvious & irrefutably qualified to—

    Anime First Impression: Autumn 2016

    It’s that time! Once again peeps I’m sharing thee my brief impression on anime I’m currently watching this fall! It isn’t as overly hyped as last summer (because all the faves and the baes were there!) but I think it’s started pretty nice to me. And I think I found another awesome series to follow! *I was supposed to post this in November but the schedule I originally had for it was a bit…too late? hence not suitable to call—

    Summer 2016 Wrap-up! (+ Fall ‘16 Watch List)

    Summer came with a bang then fizzled out a bit? Even though I did love a couple series, my expectations were pretty high before the season started so I was little bit sad that some felt lackluster towards the end. And that was due to few reasons that I’d rather mention individually! So here goes nothing! Mob Psycho 100 – no qualms whatsoever! I was pretty much excited every time I watched this series. One of the only two that—

    Anime First Impressions: Summer 2016!

    Mob Psycho 100 probably has the most creative opening visuals!!! Loud, crazy and fun!!! Bones is slaying this season yet again! I was salivating for most of these shows ever since they were announced! And here they are, ready for consumption! And feasting did I do! The crazy thing about it (apart from their schedules—they are all airing on same days WHY??!!) I fell in love with shows I didn’t expect to really, really like. I mean, this is me,—

    Spring 2016 Wrap-up! (+ Summer ‘16 Watch List)

    This is one here is my favorite series! I urge you to watch this if you still haven’t because you’re missing tons of awesome that is Boku no Hero Academia! As per usual list is listed based on enjoyability! It’s all thanks to Boku no Hero Academia & Bungou Stray Dogs that I can proudly say that Spring wasn’t all that boring. Sure, I cut off at least half of the titles I intended to watch which were due to—
