Kireina Josei, きれいな女性

I love the pleasure of watching anime where the female protagonist is a fully mature woman who is strong, competent and beautiful. Not talking bishoujo here. We're talking the real deal, kireina josei. They are out there in anime land. Perhaps outnumbered in anime by the bishies ten to one but they still shine! Utsukushii…Read more Kireina Josei, きれいな女性

Yama No Susume 2nd Season

Finally found season 2 on the "Soul-Anime" site. (Watchanime had it but then it disappeared.) They extended the length to 13:30 but without the intro and extro, the actual running time is 10:30. This time 26 episodes, a real testament to how well the original went over. Still enough sugariness to make one go look…Read more Yama No Susume 2nd Season

A Study in Violet

Violet Evergarden. What is not to love about this anime? The art is spectacular. The plot is deeply moving. The theme is all about healing even the most terrible of wounds. I never thought it was sad because her arc never stopped pushing forward. I am so happy for her! This anime has a lot…Read more A Study in Violet

Encouragement of Climb (Yama no Susume) Season One

Overload of cuteness. Each ep. is a whopping 3 minutes long plus 30 sec. for the closing, all 12 of them. Cute Girls…Read more Encouragement of Climb (Yama no Susume) Season One

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. I think it has a massive amount of appeal to the…Read more 千早振る (Chihayafuru)
