Horimiya with IriMoya – episode 13 — I drink and watch anime

And we've reached the end! Big thanks to Irina again for the open conversations and for being so on top of things on a weekly basis. I'd love to give her the sky... but we know it'll probably work out best if I bake her a cake with lots of whipped cream. Whenever you visit… Continue reading Horimiya with IriMoya – episode 13 — I drink and watch anime

[Spoiler-free] Fate/Stay Night: Heaven’s Feel III. Spring Song Review

Ever since I gave up on my final essays to catch Heaven’s Feel I. Presage Flower on the big screen and failed because all the seats were booked, I’d been committed to watching the rest of the movies in theatres. I am very lucky that I was able to do so for not only Lost… Continue reading [Spoiler-free] Fate/Stay Night: Heaven’s Feel III. Spring Song Review

[OST Spotlight] In This Corner of the World: Healing with “Migite no Uta”

It was fun doing soundtrack analysis for The Promised Neverland, so I'm back at it again! Technically, the piece featured today is more of an insert song, but it encapsulates the movie so well that I really couldn't choose anything else. "Migite no Uta" (みぎてのうた; "The Right Hand's Song") is the official theme song of… Continue reading [OST Spotlight] In This Corner of the World: Healing with “Migite no Uta”

[Highlights] Piano no Mori 12 (End): That’s It?

I know, it's only the end of the season and not the entire series, but man, this has gotta be one of the weakest episodes in the anime. Not even that many screenshots this time. It's mostly Kai playing piano, and the animation, though without major blunders, is fairly lackluster. Be yourself, Kai, be yourself.… Continue reading [Highlights] Piano no Mori 12 (End): That’s It?

[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.… Continue reading [Highlights] Violet Evergarden 13 (Finale): A Doll’s Will
