Minato is a budding actor who was captivated by voice actors while attending a concert with his friend.

The music in the anime was Uplifting and light. Love their use of the Bokeh effect, it really makes the entire thing seem really dreamy.

The pacing was definitely slow, but I really wanted to watch more of the interactions between Minato and Chikako! If you want a short anime, definitely check this one out! Also Honobono Log too! Since it was so short though, there wasn’t enough time for character & plot development but it was cute to watch. Definitely needed a full length anime.

100 princes worked together to destroy the dream-eating monsters and were sealed away into rings and it can only be broken by the princess of Traümere. The heroine is a normal girl transported to the land of dreams to reawaken the princes alongside her butler, Navi.

Adapted from a game (I tried playing it but didn’t understand much).

Watching Avi and Kiel bicker back and forth was hilarious to watch. (I swear I was mainly here for the eye-candy) I really liked Avi, Frost and Sarasa.

I love the ‘what if’ extras at the back!

This anime was pretty fun to watch. And kinda follows the heroine’s journey. The story mainly focuses on meeting other princes and Kiel’s backstory

Well, it’s not really a reverse harem since there isn’t even any romance in it AT ALL (So be warned, there isn’t romance). It was good that the story still focused on Kiel’s backstory, but the sheer amount of princes that appear were kinda detrimental to the other prince’s character arcs.But I did like that they played around with different stories, like having ice princes, Alice in wonderland.

Pretty classic weak heroine until she uses her powers, but definitely a not bad storyline. Would actually still watch if there was a second season!

Yuliy is part of the Jaegers, a group who carries around musical instruments casings and slay vampires.

The setting is kinda like industrial London but with some Eastern vibes as well. I LOVE the violin music and animation. Reminds me of D.Gray man in some way.

There is a ton of blood (I’m talking about blood sprays), but it isn’t too bad. I really like the conflict in the anime with Yuliy and his brother, Mikhail.

Yuliy is rash and quickly rushes into the action, but he is also really nice and is great at taking care of plants, erm, hello new anime boyfriend? I love that Yuliy is a determined and meticulous character despite his rashness. I really liked that Yuliy was always brought about as a lone wolf and the anime ends like that too (because honestly I didn’t really like the girl who had a crush on him).

It did feel a little too political for me initially and the plot did take a little while to be established. Initially, I did have trouble focusing on finishing the anime, but it got better as the episodes went by.

Good story about family and defending things of importance. I think the story build up was good and the focus on Yuliy and Mikhail’s brotherly relationship was a great way to tug at the audience’s emotions. Okay, I wasn’t expecting to cry for this anime, but I did. I liked the ending!

Ririchiyo Shirakiin s a heiress of a rich family (and is moving into Maison de Ayakashi where each person living there is assigned a secret service agent/bodyguard.

I like that Ririchiyo hides behind her facade of being sharp tongued and arrogant, and this sets up an interesting character for her. Soushi is her secret service agent and is strangely obedient to her. I like that although Ririchiyo claims she doesn’t need Soushi, he understands her without being intentional.

Turns out all the secret service agents and people living there are half ayakashi (demons/supernatural beings).

Why are Renshou and Shoushi so hot? (Ignore me fangirling over anime boys, again)

Most of the cast are weird, but it works because all of them work alongside each other to make the anime more interesting. I think there was definitely a good character arc for Ririchiyo.

This was one of the best anime endings I have ever seen! It’s definitely deeper than initially seemed and really something you should watch when you feel in need of comforting. It’s pretty good, but also lacking in terms of storyline since it does focus a lot on the relationships in the show.

Non and Akkun are going out, and despite Akkun verbally treating Non like trash, it turns out he is extremely obsessed with her in a stalkery way and is a tsundere.

This does make the anime kinda interesting though. It’s actually pretty cute, but the 3-minute episodes are so short. The characters are so weird that it’s hilarious. Definitely funny and entertaining, but why is it so short?

I felt bad for Masago throughout the entire anime. We also get two other potential couples and their parents, who are just as entertaining as well!

Great if you want a quick paced anime that you can finish instantly. 25 episodes and 3 mins per episode. Music throughout was mellow and light. I literally died of cuteness from this anime!
