Pastel Memories – Episode 3 Review

Another anime has been affected by the virus, and a different 3 girls go in to save it. Seems like this will be how the average episode plays out.

Unfortunately this episode shares many of the issues of the first two. The anime overall so far has felt like I am missing something. Maybe having prior knowledge of the referenced anime (assuming all the anime worlds actually have real life references) or the Pastel Memories game would help with this.

Anime A to Z: O – Ore, Twintail ni Narimasu.

Ore Twintail ni Narimasu, what’s that about Yomu? I’ve never heard of it.

Oh, it’s only the twintail manifesto in anime form!! Anyone who knows anything about twintails should have seen this anime at least twice. And all TRUE anime fans appreciate a good pair of twintails on a woman..

You really haven’t heard of it?
Well, neither had I until a few weeks ago.

Ore Twintail ni Narimasu is one of those anime where you know exactly what you are getting yourself into after reading the synopsis. And then you quickly realize that you still weren’t prepared for what was to come after beginning the first episode.

Circlet Princess – Episode 1 Review

The second anime that I will be reviewing on an episodic basis for Winter 2019 is Circlet Princess. Just like with Pastel Memories, I’m going to go into this with an open mind and the determination to watch it till the end.

And so far it’s not bad.
More like it’s almost exactly what I had expected!

Pastel Memories – Episode 1 Review

It’s time for the first episodic review on this blog!

I decided to watch a couple anime from Winter 2019 on a weekly basis, first of which is Pastel Memories. Watching anime like this is something I’ve never done – I’ve always binged anime one at a time, so this will be a little different for me.

Let’s talk about Pastel Memories Episode 1!
I believe spoilers are par for the course with episodic reviews, so I shouldn’t have to write a warning for each episode, but I’ll hint at it here anyways.

Anime A to Z: N – No Game No Life: Zero

We are officially past the halfway point for the Anime A to Z challenge!
Time sure flies huh.

For anime N I decided to finally watch an anime movie during the challenge: No Game No Life: Zero. You know, I remember when the movie was first announced, and for some reason I thought it was a recap movie so I never paid it any attention. I actually believed that all the way until last week when I was looking for what to watch for anime N, when I took a glimpse at the synopsis and realized that it was actually a prequel all along.

And what a prequel it was!
No Game No Life: Zero Spoilers Ahead!

Anime A to Z: M – Mahou Senshi Louie

Otherwise known as Rune Soldier Louie.
The romaji title helped me out again here I guess. Or did it?

When I was searching for an M anime I came across this one. Sometimes I like to look for anime with a very average 7ish rating, because there have been many occasions where I’ve actually found some very underrated anime this way. Hidden gems, as I like to call them.

Mahou Senshi Louie ticked the boxes required to pique my interest:

  • Fantasy
  • 7ish rating
  • .. and that’s about it!

The fact that it aired in 2001 is neither here nor there, but I will admit a part of me was looking forward to watching another older anime. Switching up the animation / art style can be refreshing at times, and I’ve noticed that older anime tend to use different (“classic”) tropes and jokes.

I’ll try my best to enlighten you all about Mahou Senshi Louie in this post.
I imagine I’m not the only one who had never heard of this anime before!
