This is a clickbait title. Click me! — Plyasm’s wormhole

Did you think I was going to talk some more about seasonal anime today? Ahaha...I am too lazy for that. Here, have something better - a collab I did with fellow anibloggers on clickbait anime titles! You are now checking out the post, that is for sure. But is it really because the title of …

[Highlights] Piano no Mori 01 + 02: Chopin x Shounen

Just to clarify, "Chopin x shounen" does not indicate a ship. That'd be a bit creepy. Ep. 1 The episode starts with Kai as an adult at the International Chopin Competition. Then it goes back and introduces us to Kai and his new friend, the transfer student Shuuhei. Kai and Shuuhei make up the ultimate …

Basement Recording: “Last Night, Good Night”

Were you expecting a spring season first episodes post? Nah. Don't actually read this post, okay? https://soundcloud.com/moya-tori/last-night-good-night-cover I turned 20 today, and last night I made a breakup happen for the first time in my life. I sure hope it's the last, but even saying that makes me feel naive. So as any amateur soprano …

[Highlights] Violet Evergarden 13 (Finale): A Doll’s Will

A decent end to the series. I was glad they got through the awkward battle bit as quickly as they did - Violet Evergarden is a show more about letters and reconciliation than action after all. Dietfried catches Violet's brooch before it flies off somewhere. This was the moment Dietfried redeemed himself for me. Seriously, this dude. …

[Highlights] Violet Evergarden 12: Violet Makes Grown Men Salty

Frankly, I found it hard to take this episode seriously, though this may be the most serious the anime has gotten in terms of developing some overarching external conflict. Here's Cattleya being pretty in her new coat before we get into all the ugly stuff in this episode! She's on the way to help with …

[Highlights] Sora Yori mo Tooi Basho 13: To Strive, to Seek, to Find

The end of the journey was quite satisfying. I was expecting some escapist's fantasy when I put Yorimoi on my watch list, but what I got was the entire opposite. The journey has ended, but the feels will carry on! Wow, thousand-year-old air. I don't get how the anime strives to be realistic in every aspect about …
