[Highlights] Sora Yori mo Tooi Basho 09: The Love of Cloud-like People

This episode felt like a filler in the beginning, but it didn't turn out to be about what it claims to be about at all. Wait...what happened to Gin's type being "someone like clouds"? In the end, the episode's more interested in exploring the relationship between Gin and Shirase, which is probably more interesting than …

369 Thank Yous to My 200 Followers

Now, before you accuse me of being bad at math, I was just tallying up all the times I said thank you in this post, multiplying each thank you by the appropriate amount of people I thanked each time. I counted the arigatous. Undoubtedly, there are overlaps (and there are also people who aren't followers …

[Highlights] Violet Evergarden 07: Umbrellas Help You Fly

To be frank, this episode bored me for the first 15 minutes or so. I couldn't really get into the playwright's story, but I thought the flying-over-water scene was absurd and was intrigued by Violet's moral reflections near the end. I find it interesting that the subtitles Christianized this line by choosing to use the …

[Highlights] Sora Yori mo Tooi Basho 08: Cured by a Tempest

I predicted that they'd get to Antarctica this episode, but I was wrong. I had forgotten that Australia and Antarctica aren't exactly close... This episode had been educational and was pleasant overall. Finally setting sail! I would have thought that Kimari and Shirase would be the ones to topple over. Maybe Shirase is tall enough …

[Highlights] Violet Evergarden 06: Stargazing with a Tsundere

Wait, what happened to naval captain Dietfried?! Did he just drop by to say hello angrily last episode? This episode kind of disappointed me. It's totally watchable, but I didn't start Violet Evergarden to get a "watchable" show. If you like tsundere guys (who happen to be very pretty), maybe you'll enjoy it a lot more than …

7 Yandere Songs to Listen to if You’re in Need of Some Love

Hello, hello. Can't believe I'm actually doing this post (in time for Valentine's Day, obviously)! I had this idea after stumbling into the wrong corner of YouTube Vocaloid MVs, which I used to watch the heck out of in my early otaku days. I'm assuming you all know what a yandere is. In case you …
