Current mood: I bet 10 dollars that he’ll tell that story. I bet 10 dollars that kid’s hers. I bet 10 dollars he’s gunna die next episode. I bet infinity dollars I’m going to cry like a baby.

Man, that’s a long ass title aint it? Even with the full kanji title I still dunno what it means. I can read the individual characters but this??? Nope. Like Tsuritama it’s not really popular, but not a dump anime either. It’s the only series I’m watching the same year it’s released (jjba not included). Why did I even watch it, I’m not into historical drama and tbh the first few episodes were boring as hell. Because everyone gifs the bromance (or romance, you never know) of the two mains in the first arc. So close together oh my! I’m dying to know whatever the story is about!

Mecha anime: Music, ships, and the stupid reasons I watch them

Originally written at 18/8/16

The term Mecha may refer to both scientific ideas and science fiction genres that centers on robots or machines controlled by people. These machines vary great in size and shape, but are distinguished from vehicles by their humanoid or biomorphic appearance.

As the title suggests, in this post it’s all about mecha anime! If you didn’t read my most recent review about Voltron, I am not a mecha anime person. If I continued to watch a mecha series after its first 3 episodes you can bet there’s a stupid reason behind it. Now let us move on to the mecha anime I have seen since childhood! Entry number one:

Current mood: *throws wet tissue on floor* AGAIN!

I have never heard of Voltron. I grew up watching some Power Rangers and lots of Gundam SEED. I don’t even watch mecha all that much. Then tumblr burst with gifs and art of the reboot, Voltron: Legendary Defender. The art is so similar to ATLA I can’t help but wonder if the producers have anything to do with it. Turns out, YES! Imagine my joy when finally, there is something I can watch that is like anime but is not anime and it’s not cartoonish like Steven Universe.

REVIEW: Tales of Graces f (video game)

Current mood: Protect Sophie at all costs!!!!!!!111

It wasn’t until after I got most of the AC games that I bought ToGf. My shopping list after buying a new console has always been one, Final Fantasy; two, Tales; Three, Kingdom Hearts; and four, Assassin’s Creed. Followed by other JRPGs, then only the various games I’m thirsty about. I’ve been looking into PS3 Tales games, but they’re so scarce and sometimes the shopkeeper doesn’t even know what I want. So I did some research on my own and found a few titles (at least more than PS2). I’m still salty about Tales of Vesperia. Namco Bandai, release a localized PlayStation copy OK!
