Mitsuyoshi meets Teresa while taking a photograph of cherry blossoms. She’s a foreigner who got separated from her travel companion and he brings her to his grandpa’s shop. They then discover that Teresa and her friend Alec are new transfer students at their school.

Like animation style and music very upbeat, everything was very lighthearted.

I like that Teresa is very pure and embraces Mitsuyoshi’s friends’ weirdness. Mitsuyoshi always places other before him and rarely voices his own emotions. So when Kaoru confronted him on that whil he was crying, I was in tears too. Kaoru is such a flirty character, but he does have some redeeming qualities such as being funny and very supportive of Mitsuyoshi.

I was so glad that there was a nice ending! I loved the way the story unfolded and the weird but funny characters. It was definitely a good lighthearted anime.

Narumi is an office lady and is an hardcore Otaku, but she tries to keep her secret of being an Otaku under wraps. At her new job, she meets her childhood friend Hirotaka who knows about her Otaku obsession. Hirotaka suggests that he and Narumi date since the both of them are otakus.

Music very light and I really like the animation style of this anime. I found this anime pretty funny as well, with it’s well-timed comedy. I love the way they reference games and certain animes such as Touken Ranbu and The Ancient magnus bride as easter eggs inside the anime!

Hirotaka and Narumi are so cute together OMG, all the couples are so cute in this anime. Hanako and Tarou are so cute too, although they always end up bickering. THIS IS SO CUTE I’M DYING, I’m not sure why I took so long to watch this anime, because it’s really good!

Hanako is the famous cosplayer Hana who usually dresses up as male characters and Narumi draws Doujinshi. Because Hirotaka is so emotionless, it makes the romance scenes even more swoon-worthy and funny.

I felt that the anime was too short, but I really enjoyed this one as a Josei rom-com! It’s really good and I hope that there will be a season 2 ASAP!

In a waring world where the strongest wins, Siluca is a mage and she meets Theo who wants to become a Lord to save his hometown. He has a crest and needs more to grow stronger. She decides to pair up with him and is contracted to him.

The story definitely felt very confusing at first, but more is explained as you continue watching. The drawing style is nice and music was dramatic and intense, helping to bring out the vibes of each specific scene. It actually feels like a high-fantasy Josei anime.

I really like Aishela’s character design! I loved how good the characters all looked. I love that Siluca is determined and she isn’t afraid to stoop to any level to get the job done. I was pretty sure I was swooning over most of the guys in this anime, haha. Although Theo is not very strong physically wise, I really respect that he really stands by his morales in a world where everyone is determined to get stronger. Alexis was such a pleasing character to watch.

Red queen combined with the Arcana Chronicles. This anime reminds me of Utawarerumono.

An anime with tons of crazy battles, loyalty and unexpected allies. Graphic level until blood and flying body parts but not very grotesque. It definitely shows the harsh truth of war and sacrifice. The pacing at the start was good, but it gets darker in the middle of the anime. I actually went in not expecting any romance at all, so I was glad to see that there actually was!

That Romeo and Juliet romance between Marrine and Alexis is so sad. I was literally finding characters to ship throughout this entire series.

I was so glad that there was a happy ending. Overall, I really liked the characters and the entire story arc.

Chise just wants somewhere to return to, somewhere to call home. She is sold to the highest bidder, Elias, who wants to make her his apprentice. Chise has been ostracised by others for being a Sleigh Beggy – someone who’s a magical caster with the ability to generate and absorb large quantities of energy, at the expense of their lifespan, also the magical creatures love them. Elias is a mage and he wants Chise to be his bride. Along the way, the two of them meet new friends and help other creatures out.

Some parts were comedic, but overall, it was more on the dark side. The music is gentle. I really enjoyed the story progression. It was also pretty emotionally heartbreaking. The ending was a nice one and they kinda DO get married in the end!

Imagine Harry potter meets beauty and the beast, the anime is filled with magic and things to learn. It’s also set in London, with fairies, dragons and creatures.

*Trigger warning: cats getting killed in episode 5. It’s not graphic, but there’s a ton of blood. So cat lovers, you might want to skip the episode or proceed with caution!

Okay, I was pleasantly surprised when I found out the origin of Cartaphilus’s story since it is based on the Wandering Jew from the bible. And he was baptised by Joseph. OMG this is so cool!

Saizou is a vagabond ninja and he finds his purpose when he saves Isanami, a priestess. She then demands that he act as her bodyguard until she reaches her destination. Sanada has been gathering 10 braves, who he believes can stop the impending war. Isanami’s powers also come to light.

I can see why everyone was complaining about the heroine, I did feel that she was ‘entitled’ in a way and kind of ‘pretending’ while being a damsel in distress the entire time, which kinda irked me quite a bit. I definitely agree that Isanami is kinda clingy, but if she wasn’t there, there wasn’t anything to anchor Saizou to help her and push the story forward.

It actually feels like a brusque shoujo anime somehow.

I usually don’t watch Shounen anime since I don’t like the drawing style, but the drawing style for this anime kinda blew me away. Why are Sasuke and Saizou such bishies (Hot boys)?! I think most of the time I was swooning over the guys instead of focusing on the story😂 Okay, in terms of ranking, I like Sasuke, then Rokurou and then Saizou. The characters really grew on me and they’re all unique in their own ways, which makes it really cool.

Fans of Inuyasha and Utawarerumono would love this anime since the resemblance was really there!

I like how the story progressed, but wished that they let us knew about Isanami’s secret slightly earlier. The ending was kinda abrupt, but I actually wanted to see more of these characters! I actually ended up liking this anime more than I intended.
