[Highlights] Kino’s Journey Ep. 10 (A Tale of Mechanical Dolls)

Kino's Journey is back! I'd say "I'm back," but I'm not sure I really am...yet. This episode is one that focuses on few characters instead of a country, as is reflected in its title. This was also the case in "The Tale of Feeding off Others" and "Land of Wizards." I don't know if I… Continue reading [Highlights] Kino’s Journey Ep. 10 (A Tale of Mechanical Dolls)

[Highlights] Kino’s Journey Ep. 9 (Land of Books)

Bringing back this episode review series just in time for National Library Week (thanks to e-quips for the reminder), how apropos! This is one of the hardest episode reviews I've had to write--there's so much going on here. In fact, I sat on it for well over a month, and kind of forgot about it… Continue reading [Highlights] Kino’s Journey Ep. 9 (Land of Books)

Horimiya with IriMoya: Episode 12

It’s a Christmas episode! I genuinely thought this was going to be the last episode in the series until Irina pointed out otherwise last time, but with all that happened this episode, I’m still kind of surprised that it doesn’t just end here. But how are you doing, Irina?  Irina: I’m doing great! Spring is… Continue reading Horimiya with IriMoya: Episode 12

Horimiya with IriMoya: Episode 10

It’s more Yuki, as we had hoped for! But first, happy Pi Day, and happy daylight savings switch. I don’t know if most people really celebrate either, especially the latter, but it’s cool that they coincide. Remember to go to bed early so that you can recover from the loss of an hour! (Edit: apparently… Continue reading Horimiya with IriMoya: Episode 10

Horimiya with IriMoya – episode 9 — I drink and watch anime

On kinky violence, making friends with past foes, and conversations in tight spaces. I gotta say, Miya’s reputation is taking quite the hit. He better make it work with Hori because I doubt anyone else is going to want to be with him if this keeps up. If he doesn’t end up in jail that… Continue reading Horimiya with IriMoya – episode 9 — I drink and watch anime

Horimiya with IriMoya: Episode 8

Another great episode of Horimiya, but first, the obvious question: Irina, what would you do the day before the world ends? I know I sure agree with Remi on desserts… Irina: I honestly thought about it and I would order pizzapizza funnel cake sticks and fried jalapeno poppers then spend the day drinking vodka while… Continue reading Horimiya with IriMoya: Episode 8

Horimiya with IriMoya – episode 7 — I drink and watch anime

This episode might have been just okay to Irina and myself, but well...here's my reminder to everyone to always check for more content after the ED, after having been reminded myself! Also, I really look forward to Irina's snow sculpture. You're going to make it happen, right, Irina!? Let’s start with the most important! How… Continue reading Horimiya with IriMoya – episode 7 — I drink and watch anime

Horimiya with IriMoya: Episode 6

Watching an episode called “This Summer’s Going to be a Hot One” in the middle of a (finally) snowy winter is interesting. And happy Valentine’s, by the way! This episode review of one of our season’s cutest romance came in at the right time. How are you doing over there, Irina? Irina: Happy Valentine’s day… Continue reading Horimiya with IriMoya: Episode 6
