[ Blog / Feature ] Best Anime - Lists of 2016

 It's 12 / 31 / 16 , and tomorrow marks the beginning of 2017. I wouldnt be able to catch reviews for Autumn 2016 Anime so I decided to make a list with the things that made it " the year 2016 ".

Starting with Winter 2015 / 2016

 1. Boku Dake ga Inai Machi
 - Satoru's demise for saving Kayo and the resolution towards the incident was unforgiving ( the pairing that is. haha ) yet acceptable.

2. Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu
- The first episodes were delusional, the unique theme of the story lit the benefit of the doubt.
  • Winter 2015/2016 also aired Assasination Classroom S2, Dagashi Kashi, Nijiiro Days, Kono Suba, Ajin, Akagami Shirayuki-hime S2, DRRR!!! S2 and Haikyuu S2.

[ Review / Season ] Haikyuu S3 - Battle of the Generals and the MVP

It's almost 11 : 30 pm of 12/29/2016 and here I am , regardless I hope you read through the last. It's a bit of detailed since I really wanted to share the thoughts and character reflection on the series. If you possibly cant, I suggest you just read the last paragraph. 

In History outside the textbooks, there are two types of Generals. One is a Strategist General whom his commanders and members played a solid role thus quenching victorious with minimal loses. While the next contrast the first, the Instinct General. This type, plays so brittle that one could put his family and victory on the line but certainly one cannot claim he is an instinct unless the oddities favor him. The very same that the two coaches lie on this principle. Keishin Ukai's principle, Karasuno's coach, however inherited this will from his grandfather and former coach of the school, Ikkei Ukai. The battle was definitely between Ikkei Ukai and Tanji Washijo, head coach of Shiratorizawa Gakuen Koukou.

[ Review / Season ] Bungo Stray Dogs S2 : The Frog, the Bird and the Well.

Three days before New Year !!! 2017 !!! cant help but to cram bunch of posts regarding Autumn 2016 anime series. I have atleast written this review as soon as the anime's last episode aired. I was pre-occupied with my feelings and I decided to keep it in check to this day.
I once have watched the episode of "Air Gear" , about the frog in the well. Along those lines were, the frog wouldn't be able to know what is that eerie compassion towards the horizon, "anyway". The character who said it , in my humblest opinion, seen himself as the frog whom given up on the tiniest possibility. A HOME.

In contrast with the series " Air Gear ", the frog which is represented by the Detective Agency on the series "Bungo Stray Dogs", haven't given up on the possibility. The frog knows his home, his world. The frog knows he belongs to the well. The bird represents the Port Mafia, whom also knows his home, of course birds are free.  It can stay anywhere, it could exist anywhere yet the entity holds importance of the existence of the well. Port Mafia are free people. They belong to an organization at the same time they are not. 
 Thus when come a time when the well is being threatened, those entities knew coexists with the other , became wary. The invisible force that threatens their necessity held the role of the foreign guild on the series' setting.

[ Review/Update ] What so - Fall Anime 2016

Japan is seemingly coping with the unexpected! from the sinkhole in Fukuoka to surviving the earthquake with small tsunami strikes in Fukushima. Despite of the recent incidents, look how their autumn is rolling ; 

from the looks it's definitely a luxuriant Fall. The color is something to love beyond your open windows.As much as the color , luxurious feeling Autumn gives to Japan, these series didnt fall behind for it's anime patrons.

From Summer 2016, LEFTOVERS;
Days- so far, character development is sturdy; it still lacks on action for soccer play. 

Sousei no Onmyouji- dropped. I'm feeling bad but fan service wont get me satisfied. I'll switch with the manga since the concept is really good. Anime is **mn bad. 
Fall 2016, Watching Lists:
  Let me just have a pure opinion, this is the season with bad schedules. I have to watch anime on Monday since Saturday, Sunday and few from Wednesday have the anime releases (HorribleSubs release) with worth the watch.

Sangatsu no Lion - It was evident that the series focused on drama and growth of the main character/MC instead of anime growth towards shogi. The anime's arrangement is somewhat confusing most of the times which soften your impressions per episode but the arrangements (as for whole series) didn't lessen the influence of telling his framework. Also, it's discernible that the visuals/colors lifts the mood each episode.

All Out - Happy birthday to this guy! 11/23~ All Out is Eyeshield 21 in the making and more. Im not educated to what Rugby is or what technicalities they do. Early guess, if that was the real case the anime is housing, then it will probably tackle the season with the rugby club gathering members and training them. Somehow the guess was right but dont be sadden because it has more.

The anime cased the right attitude towards the sports, under their coach's training. If only he isnt that old , I probably listed him as my husbando. He shown wit and his insights. Every episode shows the individuality of the characters, and attachments on their roles on rugby. It has no foundation to be a seeded team, no formidable enemy to look forward through, it's new, fun and promising where the team will go through.

Bungo Stray Dogs S2- The first four episodes kept me lost , where to place my feelings. Those episodes gives you no clues of relativity to the previous season. The fourth episode, however, concluded the pinnacle/culmination for the first and for the second season (if you look towards Osamu Dazai's POV). It's witty, lamenting and holds bit of the future. 

Same technicalities with the first. Literary beautiful piece.

Fune wo Amu - speaking of literary pieces, this series takes me back to the heart. It's attacking me personally. I'm a man who values meanings on words used and by watching , it as if I probably hold their place also as my own. The MC/main is readable despite of his , sometimes, lost for words on a crowded place. Getting the mood from the secondary character is new, everything is situational. I dont know how I will place it since Im biased when it comes to this kind of topic.

Nevertheless, it's a quiet, informative, light, scenic and positively loving kind of series.

Haikyuu !!! S3 - Things about the anime to the manga are the focal point chosen and highlights of ideology. It definitely didnt let me down unto that extents. Im so happy! and so sorry for our lost. Coach Ukai's seiyuu passed away and as his role is passed down starting from the 9th episode to the series new probable projects.

Hibike Euphonium S2 - I felt so tacky when Kumiko's voice actress is having monologues on the first three episodes. HAHAH~ The second season deduced the internal affairs which was left on the first. I appreciate how serious and real the situations are happening now in the anime. It's fun with the service. not fond of Yuri though. haha~

Nanbaka - pure gag, but it really kicks in whenever the story is introduced.

Occultic; Nine - I heard good feedbacks on this series, I tried and sometimes got me lost. The arrangement is unpredictable too, sometimes main story or idea appears at the beginning, sometimes either at the middle or at the ending. Because of this, many idle talks are added, sometimes it suffocates and makes it too dry. There are definitely more questions than answers. Nevertheless, despite of the difficulty , the twist or the ending for the series to cease is definitely a must watch.
 I really want to break down it pieces to pieces but i'll do it on early Winter Season.


Udon no Kuni no Kiniro Kemari - Gao Gao! Haha. Makes you feel that having a son may not be so bad.

Watashi ga Motete Dosunda - Im definitely straight when watching this.
Yuri on Ice!!! - Spoilers are everywhere. As much as the hype goes, it really is good. 

WWW Working/Web Working - I never laughed loudly as much as Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun did.

Magic Kyun Renaissance

[ Review ] Summer Anime 2016, Best of the best.

     Summer felt so long, and ended with inundate feelings toward the audience. Some really demanded ending with big impacts while some shunned the given spotlight and escaped through the backdoor.

Here are the lists of satisfying anime during summer, 
(not necessarily it ended badly) :

1. 91 Days 
  It is dark, brilliant and full of trickery. The revenge story progresses well, seizing of it's duration possible. It is as if you're watching a literary work on screen. It's not really operatic, nor too dramatic, but each episodes remained mysterious and bewitching . 
  Every minor character was supported on few scripts quoted by the related/major character. Giving you less attachments on the lamented. ( e.g. 10th episode ) Corteo rolled the dice well as the deuteragonist. TK on the OPENING SONG brings remorseful and plaintive voice, added that visuals presented matches the emotions well. I didnt really find any enjoyment, instead I've felt sad throughout. Overall the anime is well-thought. It'll keep you thinking who will have the last and best laugh at the end. The last episode, however, bagged me unbalanced, triggered yet satisfied.


2. Arslan Senki : Fuujin Ranbu ( Season 2 )
   Introduced with bad cuts but the series itself isn't that worse. The continuation within those 8 episodes enshroud for the bigger picture. It didnt really lasted an impression that it was ending. The second season added new characters with proper details. The number of episodes underscores it overall. I suggest that (if ever you wanted to continue from the first season) patiently wait for the third season than left you hanging.  I think it is an honest fault that the second season compressed within the eight.



3. Battery
  Im really addicted and perceptive towards baseball. Suprisingly , the tema was too for drama than of sports anime. It clearly departed itself from the previous baseball series you could have watched. It dared something that wasnt deepenly touched by other shounen mangas. The author's mood clearly deliberate a reality of highschool baseball. It didnt give you the solid answer that the main character bended his impeccable ideals. 

4. Fukigen no Mononokean
 This light fantasy series got me enchanted. The last episode highlighted more of the drama unlike the manga. It is definitely a fuse breaker from watching heavy seeded dramas and actions of the Summer Anime.

5. Handa-kun / Handa Seishuu
   I remember how I accidentally discover the manga, it was fun that I stayed late down to the last chapter available. Anime adapted the manga goodly but knowing how the episode is going, left the fun and excitement when I read the manga. 
   Character development got me astounded, his reticent groom in oddity. It must have been rough staying sane around Handa and friends. haha. ED/ Ending Song and Visuals supported each episodes. eg.  add one character to another per episode at each ending. Use of one character as for overall comedy is brilliant.

6. Mob Psycho 100
    One with the laziest opening (OP) lyrics you could ever Imagine. If ever I have the chance to submit my music song writing homework back in highschool, Id like to have it inspired by the MP.
    Clearly better than One Punch Man in terms of story. The first three episodes came dull and boring since best parts are reserved for a full count of 100%. Last episode partially derailed from the manga and didnt really affected it as a whole. Shigeo shown something lacking from Saitama, and that is his conviction towards his emotions. 
7. Re: Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu
    One should be patient, and love the development throughout. Dont bring any liquids when watching.

8. Orange (TAKANO Ichigo) - Anime
    From manga, to live action and its anime adaptation, Orange never failed to suppress delivered feelings towards saving Kakeru. It convey timeless controversial topic undergone by youth. Some episodes have fillers , excluded panels from the manga but didnt affect it overall. Sadly, one of my favorite heavy scene from the manga was taken lightly on the anime.

    Doubted at first, I thought my friends were overreacting towards the manga series turned anime.
    Same situation was presented like Orange, but in an adult sense. Hit me like a truck, Im currently a NEET yah see~ hahaha. Anyways, it really feel so better reading it than watching. Anime made me convince to read. Light romance filled with the character's anxiety.

10. Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu
   There are two types of people you shouldnt argue, one is LoveLive Fans and one is Fujoshi or Fudanshi. Their imagination runs wild, and terms are excessively broad as yakuza's term.
   Fudanshi Seikatsu , shows the lighter and comedic struggles of becoming one. It's really fun, and weekly promising.

11. Shokugeki no Soma : Ni no Sora
Could have been situate from the first season, the continuation was pleasingly sufficient as from it is in the manga. It wasnt demanding nor amusing when adapted but evidently up for the hype. One of the omitted scenes and lectures give me a let down., setting should have given importance. It is a series with savvy episode cuts.

1. Days

2. Sousei no Onmyouji
