Tsukuyomi ♫♫

There’s another Japanese group alongside Minami ♫ that I’ve been listening to lately, once again thanks to YouTube’s algorithms (which I have to commend, they really do a good job at suggesting similar content that I’d enjoy).

And that’s Tsukuyomi!

Busou Shoujo Machiavellianism Brief Review (Spoiler Free)

Stumbled upon this anime a while back and we’re just getting to reviewing it now. Bit of a change from the usual fantasy / isekai stuff, of which there’s more on the way thanks to the recently finished season.

Seemed interesting enough based on the poster on MAL, so let’s see how it actually turned out.

The Fruit of Evolution: Before I Knew It, My Life Had It Made Review (Spoiler Free)

Getting back to the fantasy / isekai reviews, we’ve got The Fruit of Evolution.

At a glance, unlike other long anime titles, this one doesn’t really function properly as a ‘mini synopsis’ like most others. Instead, it’s kind of vague. What sort of anime is this?

Let’s find out.

Two Years in Japan Review

With the spring comes the end of another school term in Japan.

And with that came the decision I’d have to make about whether I’d stay on another year or not. While a part of me would love to continue on for another year, the rest of me knows that it’s time to move on.

There were many great things about living here, and the job was fun, but it’s no secret that teaching English in Japan is not a great long-term deal. So while I’d love to stay, I’d also love to go home. I haven’t seen my family in two years, and it’s about time I paid them a visit.

In a week I’ll move out from the apartment I’ve lived in for the last two years, here in a small city in Nagano Prefecture. I’ll spend a little over a week in Tokyo (giving me the opportunity to see all of the cherry blossoms there for the third year in a row) before leaving Japan.

Banished from the Hero’s Party, I Decided to Live a Quiet Life in the Countryside Review (Spoiler Free)

Next up we’ve got this anime, which I’ll call Banished Hero instead of it’s actual, long title.

Once again we’ve got a fantasy anime, product of my shameless fantasy binge which I last year and have continued for the most part into this year, with only a few exceptions that I may or may not review as well.

So let’s get onto the next fantasy anime here with Banished Hero.

Wise Man’s Grandchild (Kenja no Mago) Review (Spoiler Free)

Been a while since we’ve looked at a fantasy anime on the blog, so let’s change things up with Wise Man’s Grandchild.

Like many others I’ve watched recently, I went into this one knowing nothing.

Unfortunately, I still know nothing.

But I do know what I thought of this anime at least, so let’s cover that here.

Sword Art Online Alicization – War of the Underworld Review

This one won’t be spoiler free, because there are things I wanted to write about in this one. I’ll try to spoil as little as possible, but I do want to write about the aspects of it that irritated me, because they played a large role in my thoughts. So there will be spoilers.

And there will definitely be spoilers for Alicization, the previous story arc, as this is a direct continuation. You shouldn’t read this if you haven’t seen it. And speaking of, I do have a review for Alicization here, although it’s in my old format which included spoilers.

And throughout this post, when I mention War of the Underworld, I mean both parts. They’re separate on MyAnimeList but may as well just be one full season I think.
