Skip Beat Anime Review

Okay, this is a waaay overdue review.

Summary:

Kyoko followed her true love and childhood friend Sho to Tokyo so she could help him reach his dream of becoming an idol. She cleans, cooks, works three jobs and does nothing for herself because she loves him so much, but gets nothing in return. Still, she remains by his side.

Itazura na Kiss Review

Have you ever seen a series that makes you wish you take the place of a particular character? This series makes me feel just that way. It leaves me with a warm and fuzzy feeling on the inside after watching it. This is the only romance anime series that I have seen that does not leave me heartbroken mid way or leave me wanting more and more. I mean, sure, given the choice i would take more eps of Itazura na Kiss. But this series does not need more eps. It ended the best way it could. Read the rest of this entry

Koisora (Sky of Love) J-Movie

I am not really one to review movies but I can’t keep what i feel about this movie in.

Toshokan Sensou Review

Here it is, the end of Toshokan Sensou.
Perhaps I am the only one who finds this show slightly weird and illogical but looking past the book keeping war and at the anime for its fundamental attributes; comedy, action and romance, I have to say that I was entertained. Read the rest of this entry

Junjou Romantica – 10

Finally the appearance of our last couple! The terrorist couple.
I have to say that the name is very fitting. Afterall, Shinobu practically terrorizes Miyagi.
