Fall 2018 Preview II.

This is the second (and last) installment of this season’s previews. Unknowingly I picked quite a number of shorts/shorter-than-full episodes this season. Maybe I will be able to follow some of these throughout the whole three months!

Sono Toki, Kanojo wa

A series of shorts about love.

The anime will take place in Fukuoka, and will follow the love lives of four female protagonists as high school students, college students, and as working adults.

This could be pretty bad or pretty good. One of the problems some people have with the series already is that it looks like it will be purely heterosexual. On the other hand, so was Tsurezure Children and that was very well received. My expectations so far are high in the art style department, but I’m a little worried as to how the story/stories will be. Anyway, this is airing today!

Fall 2018 Preview I.

Although lately I haven’t had the time to write (blame real life), I still plan on watching some, namely six, anime this season. I’m sure I won’t be following all six for the whole 12+ weeks, but a girl can dream, right? Without further ado, let’s look at the first three today. There will be a second installment on Sunday.

Jingai-san no Yome

Jingai-san no Yome (lit. Outcast’s Spouse) is airing today!

Tomari Hinowa is a normal high schooler, until one day he’s told that he has to become the wife of a mysterious creature called Kanenogi. This is the start of their newly married life.

It’s adapted from a yonkoma, so the episodes are going to be only 5 minutes long. The genre is comedy, though we expect a bit of slice-of-life as well.

Since I have not been able to get my hands on the manga, I don’t know what else to expect. The PV doesn’t give much information either. One thing is certain though—the monster spouse, who loves drooling all over the boy, is cute.

Winter 2018 Preview III.

This is the last installment of this season’s previews. This time I will write about two anime I forgot about when I planned this miniseries. They are Violet Evergarden and Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san.

ヴァイオレット・エヴァーガーデン | Violet Evergarden

Violet Evergarden is about Violet Evergarden, a girl…

[…]formerly known as “the weapon,” has left the battlefield to start a new life at CH Postal Service. There, she is deeply moved by the work of “Auto Memories Dolls,” who carry people’s thoughts and convert them into words.

Violet begins her journey as an Auto Memories Doll, and comes face to face with various people’s emotions and differing shapes of love. All the while searching for the meaning of the words, she has heard on the battlefield, uttered by someone dear to her.

Winter 2018 Preview II.

For the second installment of my Winter 2018 preview, I picked three manga adaptations that will begin airing on Friday, January 12th and that I plan on watching. Watching one episode almost every day of the week is probably going to turn out impossible, when school and work get rough, but I will try.

Let’s get into this! This time I’ll be looking at the sources, synopsis and promotional materials of Koi wa Ameagari no You niTakunomi. and Hakumei to Mikochi. Continue reading

Winter 2018 Preview I.

I would like to watch eight anime series from the 48 airing this winter. (I’m excluding 18+ titles.) I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to keep up with all of them, because of other responsibilities (aka school and work), but I sure am going to try.

Today I will go over three of them – their source manga (it just so happened that all six are manga adaptations), synopsis, promotional videos and art et cetera. Cutting to the chase, today you can read about: Mitsuboshi Colors, Kokkoku and Dagashi Kashi 2. Continue reading
