[With this review, I’m kicking off what I would like to become a regular series of gaming-related posts. Various factors will decide how often these posts get written, such as the popularity of these posts, whether or not anyone else on Team Zero wants to write about gaming, and the frequency at which games eligible for review are released. These posts will usually (but not necessarily always) deal with Japanese games, to try and keep these somewhat related to what Bokutachi no Blog usually covers. I hope you enjoy it!]
There are 5 games that make me incredibly happy. 5 games that fill me with a sense of joy that makes me feel as if there is no better place to be in the world than when I am playing them. Those games are:
I know Hanasaku has been dropped and picked up and dropped and picked up and dropped by a few members of Bokutachi during its 26 episode run, and as the person who was originally responsible for reviewing it, I felt the need to at least review the last episode.
Recently, a friend of mine told me that he was going to watch Kamisama no Memo-Chou, and I, having watched 5 episodes and dropped it, decided to tell him that it really wasn’t very good. I told him about how I thought the first episode was pretty great, with solid writing and an impressive sense of style, and how I initially thought it would be a much better show than I thought it would be beforehand, but it squandered much of its potential, becoming fairly repetitive and dull. Somehow, among him getting pissed off at me for dropping it before the ending, and me recommending some other shows he should watch instead, he asked me if I liked Naruto, to which I responded that no, I actually kinda hate it.
So, remember my last episodic post? Where I ragged on No. 6 largely due to the fact that it was crawling along with very little happening? Well, things did happen in the last two episodes, problem is, it just wasn’t worth it.
So join me in one final post about No. 6. I’ll be discussing the last two episodes and giving my thoughts on the series as a whole. Thank god the seasons almost over.
Warning: Even though there are no indecent pictures, this post isn’t for KIDS! This following anime is certainly not for kids either.
Lately, I’ve discovered I have a very twisted taste for anything that is EVIL or at least abnormal, partially due to the fact that I’ve been re-watching Kara no Kyoukai and the scene where Cornelius Alba plays around with Toko’s head still roams in my mind. And so, I’ve decided to visit some of the most evil anime in history. The first title of “The Evils of Anime” will be Blue Flames. I’ve found this anime thanks to Scamp’s Terribad Anime Reviews
# of episode: 1
Year of Release: 1989
Genre: Drama, Erotica, Romance*
Studio: Nippon Animation
*The romance is a lie!
Since watching Episode 24 of Hanasaku Iroha, I’ve had one thought overriding everything else that’s going on in this series right now, and that is that Ohana doesn’t deserve Ko. But despite that belief, I still want to see them get together in the end.
Being sick: it really sucks. Quite the bummer.
