I’ve never really like those harem anime series where several girls cling to a male character in order to catch his attention. Reverse harem, however, is a whole different matter to me; I guess being a girl makes it more pleasant to watch reverse harem instead of the regular harem. The reverse harem series I enjoyed watching the most is definitely Ouran High School Host Club. Read the rest of this entry »

There are quite a lot of anime villains that I like. Well, maybe “like” is not the most adequate word; perhaps it’s better to say that there are a lot of anime villains that are portrayed in an interesting way. The villain that I think is the most interesting is Darcia from Wolf’s Rain.

SPOILER WARNING: this blog post may contain spoilers of Wolf’s Rain. You have been warned. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m a sucker for those anime that focus on one specific hero or heroine and then portrays the struggles and hardships he or she has to go through in order to become what they want to be. Add in some flirting with “the dark side” and you’ll have me hooked. I think an anime characer that fills these requirements is Hei from Darker than Black. Read the rest of this entry »

The topic of this anime challenge is quite ambiguous to me, because I think there is a large difference between the best and the most intriguing art. That’s why I will choose two “winners” today, in those two categories. If we’re talking about the best art, then I think Kuroshitsuji is an extremely good example of that. For the most intriguing art, however, the prize goes to Ano Hana. Read the rest of this entry »

Again, a difficult topic, mainly because it’s hard to decide what sets apart a josei anime from other anime series. In the end I think I’ll choose Haibane Renmei, because to me this series truly represents what josei stands for: it’s a very mature series, and you need to go through some thinking to understand the deeper layers of what is happening.

Hi guys! I know, I haven’t posted anything on this blog in ages, and I definitely owe you an apology for that. The main reason for that is that I am now studying abroad for a while, and that has taken more of my time than I had expected. Anyway, I plan on writing posts for this blog more regularly again from now onwards, so this blog should be filled with new posts soon again!

It was hard for me to come up with an anime that would have an older male audience as its main target group. That’s why I had to cheat a little and check the tags on MyAnimeList. My favourite anime from the ones that had the seinen-tag is Arakawa Under the Bridge, a rather unconventional and hilarious anime. Read the rest of this entry »

I immediately thought of Natsume Yuujinchou when reading today’s anime challenge, and I know, I’ve been talking a lot about this anime in this challenge, but I can’t help that I like so many aspects about it! Maybe Natsume Yuujinchou is not a shoujo anime in the strict sense of the word, but I definitely think that this anime is aimed more at girls than at boys. Read the rest of this entry »

There are only a few anime that I’ve seen so far that truly fit into the category of a ‘shounen’ anime, which means that its main audience is boys. My personal favourite of those is Katekyo Hitman Reborn. Even though it was rather predictable, I enjoyed all 203 episodes of this anime. And believe me, Katekyo Hitman Reborn is a real shounen anime, with action and long-lasting fights. Read the rest of this entry »

Again I’m a few days late with this entry, which is partly because I’m leaving for Finland in less than a week (yay!) and also partly because I had to think about this challenge. I think yandere characters are way harder to recognize than tsundere characters for some odd reason. It’s hard to find a character that completely fits the description of a yandere. Actually, I’d even go as far as saying that Bianchi from Katekyo Hitman Reborn is the only yandere I can think of right now. Read the rest of this entry »
