[Highlights] Kino’s Journey Ep. 12 (A Peaceful Land)

Back again with another procrasti-post! This episode really isn't one of the series' strongest. It feels kind of wrong that it's the penultimate episode in the series, when the episode prior to it could probably lead into the finale more nicely. It's called the "Land of Peace," but wait, there are tanks and statues of… Continue reading [Highlights] Kino’s Journey Ep. 12 (A Peaceful Land)

[Highlights] Kino’s Journey Ep. 11 (Her Journey)

Oh look, it's been so long since the last time I drafted a post that Funimation and Crunchyroll have fused and Kino's Journey has long left both of them anyway, so I had to get HIDIVE. I thought I could finish watching and writing about a mere 3 episodes within the 14 day free trial… Continue reading [Highlights] Kino’s Journey Ep. 11 (Her Journey)

[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)

Do you ever just forget that you have a blog? That's what happened to me...until I checked my blog email the other day and found a surprisingly recent request for my response on a certain question. It was such an interesting prompt that I decided to write a whole post on it. If you're reading… Continue reading The Struggle of (Not) Having Thoughts on Anime

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 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
