Recently I stumbled upon a YouTuber by the name of Dogen. He typically makes videos parodying typical Japanese lessons, and I couldn’t believe it when I found this video on kōans. Have a look-see! And while you’re at it, consider subscribing to him! He’s got some pretty great videos! Advertisements Continue reading Kōans for Modern Society
I don’t think I mentioned this in my Barakamon review, but I actually started watching Handa-kun before realizing it was a prequel. In fact I think I only found out about the show from this gif; That gif is actually a great example of what you can expect from the show, and to be honest if they’d dropped the idea of it being a prequel … Continue reading Anime Review: Handa-kun. The comedic nonsensical “prequel” to Barakamon.
Featured Image from SteamyTomato or maybe JWALL? Also just noticed the Funhaus logo on the mug ^_^ What a sweet and fun series! No wonder I finished all 13 episodes in less than 24 hours!

I found out you might get more than you bargained for if you accidentally stumbled upon the Blu-ray version… Anywho the show is available on Hulu, … Continue reading Anime Review: Boku Wa Tomodachi Ga Sukunai (I don’t have many friends)
This show had a pretty quick turnaround from my first impressions post earlier last week, but I got a little caught up in it and couldn’t stop watching. It reminded me of Kids on the Slope from time to time as well as shows like Clannad, Anohana and Angel Beats. I didn’t necessarily go into this show with high expectations, but I knew the show … Continue reading Anime Review: Your lie in April

But this is a special occasion as I’ve officially read all 229 chapters of Nisekoi! It’s been a pretty funny journey over the past couple of years. I was introduced to the series through the first season of the anime, … Continue reading Manga Review: Nisekoi (False Love)
