[First Impression] Hakumei to Mikochi is the Cutest Thing I’ve Seen in 2018

Finally, I've gotten around to reviewing all the first episodes on my watch list this season! This anime is really freakin' adorable, and now I just want to turn into a little person and live a blissful, tiny life.

For anyone who considers staying in Vancouver, I must tell you that it is a very depressing city. It just rains and rains, and when there's no rain the clouds still loom over you, threatening to make it rain.

I wasn't planning to watch this show, but it turned out to be something that threw my expectations into the dirt. Love Live! is no longer my favourite idol anime... Story Inspiring: Daichi is your average high school boy who, in an unexpected twist of events that I'm not going to spoil, bonds with his anti-social …

[First Impression] Sora yori mo Tooi Basho and the Promise of a Splendid Youth

With a name like that, Sora yori mo Tooi Basho (A Place further than the Universe) sets out to be an escapist's fantasy. And I think it accomplishes it in this episode. Out of the 5 anime I chose to try out for the season (see 2018 Winter Anime I’ll Check Out), this was the …
