Top 10 2014 moments- Side B

by shakeko

The project of 12 days as an idea started as a sampling of moments but many bloggers like us take the chance to generally talk about the series we loved during the year that passed. But this year we thought it might be a good idea to actually do that in a seperate post where we collect the 10 astounding and 10 horrible moments from titles we haven’t included elsewhere. As the list descends, the moments have made better or worse impressions respectively. The last and second part full of ranting is here.  Continue reading

Secret Santa Project 2014: Infinite Ryvius

tumblr_nf2cvuxUXr1su6ljeo2_1280

This is my first year participating in this tradition and it didn’t start that well. First of all, I had to give recommendations to someone that had watched almost everything I have and deemed worthy of recommendation. I somehow managed some options and the people of Reverse Thieves lent a helping hand, too. Secondly, when I received my list I felt like a fish out of water, since I got Mobile Police Patlabor: Early Days, Infinite Ryvius, Macross: Do You Remember Love? All of them was in various degrees mecha. Mecha is one of my least preferred genres, though. I don’t find giant robots slick or appealing, battles are boring for me and the jargon of moves and who’s attacking who fly over my head.

Due to its famous status and short duration, I picked up Macross. Bad move. Probably because I had no idea of the franchise I was less forgiving to the macho non-sense 25 minutes in the film from that blonde guy. I couldn’t care about anyone. Plus the silly talk about “yuck deculture” had me rolling my eyes. Dropped.

Soooooo… Because I honestly didn’t want to stay with a bad taste, I tried once more. I’ve seen Infinite Ryvius described as Lord of Fireflies in space. I haven’t read this book but a friend liked the anime for its psychological drama and depiction of human nature. That’s how I ended up watching 26 episodes of this series and actually found it pretty good. Thankfully.  Continue reading

2014: 11th day of animanga

Yahari.Ore.no.Seishun.Love.Come.wa.Machigatteiru.full.1185678

We’ve said this was a great year for comedies for us and we can’t leave out Oregairu (My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong As I Expected) . It was aired just the previous year and with a second season coming out this year, I thought it’d be a good idea to talk about it now than later when we might have regrets with unwanted routes/develoments (see romance, shipping).  Continue reading
