Gi(a)rlish Number Girlish Number Japesland – 7/10 I didn’t seem to fall in love with Shirobako quite as deeply as the majority of the Internet, but what I did truly appreciate about it was its realistic take on the anime industry (realistic is relative, of course). While Girlish Number takes its own creative license, just as… Read More Fall Anime 2016 Review (Part 2/3)
Thanks to Annalyn convincing me to watch Haikyuu!! back in around January, I ended up binging the entire season and a half that had aired and eagerly anticipated the upcoming episodes of season 2 (and later, waiting desperately for Fall to come so I could watch season 3). I was shocked, as sports anime had… Read More Sports Anime – Your Move

The Berserk of 2016, however, which covers events after the Golden… Read More Summer Anime 2016 Review (Part 2/3)
“All things in life worth having take work.” This is probably from some famous proverb or quote, but I know it as something my mom said to me quite often as I grew up. Whenever I wanted something, but didn’t feel the need to put in the work to get it, I would be prompted… Read More DAYS – Work With All Your Heart
The sports anime drought ended in early July, and your resident sports anime fangirl is back in action! I’m only watching DAYS for now, since it’s the most easily accessible of this season’s sports anime, and I’m pleased to say it’s much better than the last soccer anime to plague my screen. DAYS centers on a… Read More Annalyn’s Corner: DAYS and Living… Foolishly?
