Teasing Master Takagi-san (Eps 4-6)

After all this time, I’ve gotten through to episode 6 of Teasing Master Takagi-san!

Man, Nishikata just makes this anime so difficult to watch. He’s just obtuse to levels I feel like shouldn’t be possible, and his pettiness knows no bounds. The only thing going for him is his ability to get over his constant defeats without too much issue.

Anyways, like last time I’ll try to throw in a little commentary here regarding Japan based on what I saw in these three episodes. And like last time, I watched these with no subtitles, only using my dictionary every once in a while.

Some More Unexpected Aspects of Living in Japan

I’ve been living here in rural Nagano Prefecture for the last year and a half, so I have to say that I feel like I’ve adapted to quite a bit since I first came to Japan.

When I first arrived to Japan, in Tokyo, just the streets, cars, buildings, etc. were foreign enough to make me want to take pictures of basically everything I laid my eyes on. I’ve definitely gotten past that, at least. The mountains here still catch my eyes all the time though, so I’m glad to say that I haven’t gotten over them.

Like some of my other posts, here are some more things that I didn’t know I’d have to deal with when I moved to Japan.

Hitsugi no Chaika Review (Spoiler Free)

Hitsugi no Chaika / Chaika the Coffin Princess, another anime that I’d recently re-watched and finished.

Like many others, I’d basically forgotten everything about it, except for some of the major points. While it’s technically two seasons, totaling 22 episodes, they’re connected in a way that makes this just one complete story. And so, this review is technically for both Hitsugi no Chaika and Hitsugi no Chaika: Avenging Battle.

Blood Lad Review (Spoiler Free)

I’ve been watching quite a few anime lately.

Well, re-watching quite a few.

I know that there are probably quite a few great newer anime that I’ve yet to see, as well as quite a few older anime that I’ve not yet watched and would enjoy quite a bit. But then, there are also quite a few anime that I’ve already seen, quite enjoyed, and wanted to see again. Because I knew I’d enjoy them quite a bit going in.

And this time it’s Blood Lad, which I first saw quite a few years ago, and didn’t quite remember much from it.
Perfect re-watch material!

暁Records – リバーストリガー (Reverse Rebirth Trigger)

And here we have the second Akatsuki track that was released recently, part of the HELLOHELL album. This one, Reverse Rebirth Trigger, was released on YouTube on July 29th.

The name for this song is a fun little play on the katakana リバース (“rebasu”), which can both mean “Reverse” and “Rebirth”, as that’s what both of these words end up becoming when converted into kana. So while リバース (“rebasu”) is only written once in the title, it can simultaneously hold both meanings.

Dimension W Review (Spoiler Free)

Recently finished another anime, also a rewatch, which I’ve been doing a lot recently. Will move onto fresh anime soon, but still enjoying these rewatches for now!

This time it’s Dimension W, an anime I remembered enjoying, but as always, I forgot most of the details. Which made it great for a rewatch. I figured I may as well write a short review for it before moving onto the next rewatch.
