Darling in the FRANXX

What shall I review today? I was going to do Darling in the FRANXX but then that show disappeared and was replaced with a totally different show with the same title and characters. It started out a bit shaky but soon I had fallen in love with enough characters for a harem when suddenly I…Read more Darling in the FRANXX

千早振る (Chihayafuru)

Translated to English, Chihayaburu means ferocious, impassionate, mighty, or raging.  In this anime, the "b" is changed to an "f" but the meaning is the same. Chihaya Ayase is a high school girl who's playing style fits the definition perfectly. They say this is in the josei genre.

Monogatari Franchise

I am busy rewatching the entire Monogatari anime series for the third time. I have a not-quite photographic memory for movies and anime so for me to watch something even twice is a rare honor. This show was not produced in chronological order but I think it is best if you watch it that way.  It goes…Read more Monogatari Franchise
