Relife

I have been watching anime for a few years now, and I have been able to learn my things from different anime. Shows like Baby Steps, Gintama, Assassination Classroom, Cowboy Bebop and Days to name a few. They have definitely changed my views on life, relationship, morality, justice, friendship and empathy. Relife is definitely one of these anime,  for 13 episodes it uses  character development, conflict, or the entertainment to teaches us valuable lessons. Continue reading

Nijiiro Days

At first glance, one would think that this is a yaoi anime, but even without the “shounen-ai” tag, it’s not. It’s one of those rare romance anime where the main characters are the same gender, but the romance is heterosexual. When I first saw this anime, I thought probably the same thing as anyone else who was unfamiliar with this anime before it aired, “This is going to be another borderline-yaoi anime, is it?” Then, I read the description, and my curiosity was piqued. For that reason, I ended up watching it when it premiered, and I must say that it was a fun anime to watch.

Bungou Stray Dogs

Bungou Stray Dogs is a weird anime. It has a good story, interesting characters, and amazing fight scenes, but it has a lot of references to Japanese authors that only the most widely read would know.

If I can sum up this anime, though, I’d say that it’s bipolar. The normal moments are meant to be a bit tiresome, and it’s on purpose, while the show will suddenly shock you on the other end of the spectrum.

Boku no Hero Academia

Boku no Hero Academia is pretty textbook Shounen. It’s super formulaic, and the story is predictable. The story elements rely heavily on cliché, and the characters are basic stereotypes you’ll find in any Shounen anime. It’s no surprise because this anime proudly hails from the Shounen Jump lineup. With that being said, though, I f*cking love this anime.I’m really amazed at how reliable of a genre Shounen is. When I first saw this anime, I already knew its bleeding cliché from all over the place. After the first episode, though, I find myself just watching the next episode one after another.

Final Fantasy XIV: The adventure so far.

Back in 2010, Final Fantasy XIV was released onto the PC. In the shadow of its predecessor, Final Fantasy XI, fans had very high expectations and were thoroughly disappointed with the product. Causing the developers to do something very clever. Kill the game, spectacularly, and use the cataclysm to set the scene for an improved title. Hence came Final Fantasy XIV 2.0, more commonly known as A Realm Reborn, released in 2013 and to this day stands as on of the best MMO experiences available. Continue reading
