The Case Study of Vanitas: Part II

Apr 1, 2022

Anime Review #26 - The Case Study of Vanitas II I guess I liked it more than I was expecting too lol like sure I didn't love everything about it but I did kind of hyperfixate on it for a week. Anyway LOL, here are my rambles from watching this show. Idk if you could even call this a proper review though, it’s kind of just me word vomiting my thoughts while watching<3 ((lots of spoilers warning lol)) . . . I just have to say that I don’t really love the Jeanne x Vanitas pairing lol. Jeanne is cute and all sure, but it kinda makes Noé look like a little bitch baby who’s... See full review

The Daily Life of the Immortal King

Mar 29, 2022

what da dog doin? here are my opinions about this show. i legit just finished it so this is what i have to say... (spoilers) I really wasted a day watching this just for the ending to be cringey as hell smh. goofy ah show man. I was so down for the emotionless op mc to have his amulet broken off and he'd go epic crazy power mode and everyone would see it and be like "omg the weak guy is actually strong!!!", but nooo we did not get that satisfaction. the way they did it was so lame like-- not him beating that random assassin lady around for 5 mins and then pissing himself and throwing a fit...

The Case Study of Vanitas

Mar 25, 2022

Anime Review #25 - The Case Study of Vanitas This is just my review for the first 12 eps :D also i've never read the manga so take my opinions with a grain of salt <3 I just be saying things that pop in my mind. ((spoilers + dumb opinions ahead!!!)) So I saw this anime on Hulu and decided to watch it lol. I'd never heard of it before, but vampires are cool so I was intrigued. Lemme tell you though, the plot was all over the place to me. I thought I would like Vanitas because he's like the silly, loud, egotistical, douchey guy who you hate but lowkey like, but idk man,,, in like episode 3 or something... See full review

Jujutsu Kaisen 0

Anime Review #24 - Jujutsu Kaisen 0 (Movie) I saw this movie in the theaters today and it was better than I was expecting! Now I'm going to regurgitate when I wrote on my Letterboxd right after the movie lol<3 (spoilers + my cringe opinions ahead) ~ ~ ~ I honestly really liked Yuta. I liked him wayyy more than I like Itadori lol I almost wish Yuta was the main character in the show instead of Itadori.... lol But then again I’m also a sucker for when the innocent quiet nice boy goes crazy<3 Like I thought that the fight scene where Yuta just randomly gets OP when...

Komi Can't Communicate

Jan 7, 2022

Anime Review #23 - Komi Can’t Communicate I saw this show being recommended on tiktok but I didn’t want to start watching it until most of the episodes were out. Now that the first 12 eps have concluded, I can say that this show has honestly become one of my new favorites!  Essentially, Komi Can’t Communicate is about a high school girl named Shouko Komi who has extreme social anxiety that has led her to become mute and unable to form relationships with her peers. Her classmates, however, find Komi to be so stoic, mysterious, and beautiful that they worship her as their... See full review

Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga

Nov 29, 2021

Anime Review #22 - Blue Exorcist Kyoto Saga (some spoilers hehe) Kyoto Saga is the continuation of the original 25 episode Blue Exorcist series except this one actually follows canon picking up after episode 16(?) I think. Honestly I like that they decided to backpedal to follow the manga, but it was weird to see all his classmates hate him again for being the spawn of Satan like I got deja vu. But it’s cool, it’s better this way. (I watched Blue Exorcist soo long ago so it’s kinda nostalgic to me, and I’d be happy with as many episodes as we can get. I also watched it in...

Jujutsu Kaisen

Nov 28, 2021

Anime Review #21- Jujutsu Kaisen Jujutsu Kaisen is about a boy named Itadori Yuuji who is brought into a world of curses and jujutsu sorcerers after he swallows one of the twenty fingers of the king of curses, Sukuna. In doing so, he becomes the vessel for Sukuna, which means that he can no longer live his normal life so he joins the sorcerers at Jujutsu Tech, at the behest of some of the higher ups.  Since I don’t feel like summarizing the whole show, here were my personal opinions of it! I actually watched the first 9 episodes when the show was being released a while aho, but then I... See full review

Sonny Boy

Anime Review #20 - Sonny Boy (some spoilers ahead!) I'm giving this show an amibiguous 3.5 stars because I'm not really sure how i feel about it lol. I understand that the show isn't meant to "make sense" and that it's all very symoblic and surreal, but it was a whirlwind trying to decipher what each episode was "about". To watch this show, you kind of just have to go in understanding that you can't really predict what is going to happen. A lot of things go unanswered and are up to our interpretation, but i like having closure lol. The twinky kid with the star on his cheek was so... See full review

The Night is Short, Walk On Girl

Jul 26, 2021

Anime Review #18 - The Night is Short, Walk On Girl [ completed on sunday 21-07-25 ] Spoiler free review :) Through a beautifully unique use of color, shape, and pattern, the film takes place during the span of one night in which ‘the girl with the black hair’ embarks on various adventures with the strangers that she meets while out drinking. This film really surprised me and seeing the art style of the film really drew me in to watch it in the first place (if you've seen Science SARU's Devilman Crybaby the art style is reminisent of that). Having not known much about the film... See full review

Kuma no Kojima

Jul 26, 2021

It was a nice little short film about a polar bear who finds treasures while fishing on their island home. The music was very reminesecent of animal crossing, which I enjoyed, the only thing was that the twitchy animation style was a bit hard to look at after a while, so if you're sensetive to that kind of thing, then maybe this isn't the 3min film for you lol. Regardless, it had a nice, simple story and I thought it was sweet :) I hope the bear has a nice blooming garden soon.

Poopstars Review I didn’t like s1 of this show but i decided to hate watch s2 cuz why not lol. Basically i hate all of the characters and the dialogue is so pretentious and cringey. I physically roll my eyes at their dumb phrases and fake deep metaphors though it should be to note that I’m watching the english dub for added cringiness.  Haru’s character is pointless and annoys me so much, all the boy characters are so fruity it would be way more interesting if legoshi was gay. Here are some thoughts i had while watching: -bald legoshi -can the gay theater sheep and the wolf... See full review

Anime Review #17 - FLCL [ completed on wednesday 21-06-02 ] Spoiler free review. FLCL, or Fooly Cooly, takes a unique approach to the coming of age story, following a boy named Naota who’s feeling jaded about his life. One day, a rambunctious woman wielding a blue electric bass guitar and riding a moped, comes literally crashing into his life, and what ensues is the story of puberty, falling in love, jealousy, embarrassment, excitement, rebelliousness, and much more!

Not sure why or what I was waiting for, because I really enjoyed this anime. For starters, the main character, Yumeko Jabami, is an amazingly insane yet composed and likeable character who I instantly took one look at, with her long dark hair and bangs, and said “yep, I kin this woman now!”  Yumeko is crazy, but I like it. She gets wet from the idea of gambling, but she’s also down to make... See full review

I had heard some good things about this anime before, but it had never really peaked my interest enough to watch it until now. Once again, I kind of went into this one not knowing much about the plot, aside from a quick read of the synopsis that netflix provides. It was only 12 episodes, so I decided to just devote the night to watching every episode. Right off the bat, the aesthetics reminded me of... See full review

Anyway, here are my dumb little thoughts. (SPOILERS AHEAD, babes!!!)

It’s like a shittier, more mature zootopia but the plot is all over the place. When I first started watching it I genuinely didn’t think I’d get past episode 2, like the idea of animals in theater club was just too much for me bestie.. lol but we kept watching and I kinda got used to the idea of animals doing human things and so I thought I'd share my thoughts. a man has fallen in the river in Legoshi...

At first I thought this would be a straight crack show that you don’t really need to take seriously (well for the most part kaizaki is always a bit of a crackhead), but it actually has some decent plot drama centered around teenage angst and school life. I was honestly just looking for a comedy that would actually make me laugh and this one did at first.. Then it got too focused on Rena lol… But for real I genuinely was laughing in the first episode and... See full review
