Kyou wa Kaisha Yasumimasu

It’s 3am again and my insomnia hasn’t died down.

So allow me to talk about my first Sota drama series. My friend really likes him so I gave this one a chance when I saw that Tamaki Hiroshi will also be playing a role.

To be honest, I didn’t expect much. In the first few episodes, I don’t feel the sparks – yes, an older woman falls in love with a younger man, what now? Continue reading

Nisekoi

I’m very excited to review Nisekoi because it’s my brother’s first romantic anime. Okay, I know you might’ve read and watched a lot of shoujo and this is nothing new but this is my brother we’re talking about. He slept through Kimi ni Todoke, played Pokemon while watching Ore Monogatari and refused to try Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun. He just doesn’t like romance. I don’t know if he avoids it because hello boy stereotypes, but when I talk with my friends, their brothers don’t seem to be bothered at all by gender over genre preference.

So.

When my brother is suddenly able to finish Nisekoi, I cannot help but just fangirl over it. Like I’ve been trying for so many months to convince him and he just makes this sour face as if romance in itself is a profane subject matter. He’s really missing a lot.

So what’s up with Nisekoi? What distinguishes it apart from all the shoujo anime I push to recommend to my little brother (who’s actually not so little anymore)? Continue reading

Ore Monogatari

I totally needed a break after Shadow of Hegemon. One can only take too much dose of politics and military strategy. Sometimes, people like me also need something romantic and light and funny. Considering all three elements, I knew I want to read Gekkan Shoujo right then.

But just in case you have yet to read the title of this blog post, I’ll clarify. No, I’m not going to write about GSNK (if ever I will, I’d like that post to be as special as my Itazura na Kiss review). Instead, I’ll be revisiting my feelings for Ore Monogatari which I just happen to finish last night.  Continue reading

Gruvia: On Gray’s Rejection

Much has already been said about this pairing. Some people like them and some don’t. I personally prefer this one over other ships out there because you know me (refer to my previous posts), but a lot has been calling foul that it should sink. In a sense, they’re saying that Gruvia is just about a girl who’s obsessed over a guy who blatantly told her ‘no.’

Don’t say otherwise!

He definitely did.

refer to chapter 338 of the manga

Shippers of this pairing have turned a blind eye over this fact because they thought ‘why not?’ We all know that a couple of chapters after, Mashima-sensei pacifies the storm with moments that tell us romantic relationship is anything but impossible (see: Tartaros Arc).

But I’m going to talk about it here because I think it deserves our attention. The rejection definitely happened and I don’t think that it’s just a way to humor fans or say that, sometimes, there are ‘bumps’ on the road. Continue reading

it’s all about the money money money

If I could change the lyrics of price tag, I definitely will after finishing C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control. I really liked it. Not like-like but you get what I mean. I like it enough to write about it instead of vomiting my feelings on Twitter that can never handle my long, incoherent, un-punctuated sentences.

So. The thing that I really like about this anime is its premise:
