Review: Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon

I will not remember December 24th, 2011 as the date of Christmas Eve, but rather as the moment when Fate/Zero Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon ended. Oh well, at least Horizon is getting a second season in Summer 2012. It was to be expected since the numbers for BD pre-orders were said to be pretty high. The first BD volume of Horizon sold 16,349 copies on the first week of release.

12 Days of anime #3: M.D. Geist for Christmas

If you thought Poro was outdated with Honey & Clover for this year’s 12 Days of Anime, think again as I visit an anime that first appeared in 1986.

12 Days of Anime #5: How ‘Slice of Life’ Made a Home in My Heart

I have to be honest: When I first started watching anime, I was drawn to the shows that were fantastical, that involved magic, different dimensions, futuristic worlds, or mecha. Whether it was the ability to manipulate natural elements, mold chakra, recite spells, perform superhuman feats, or interact with and drive a really cool piece of machinery, it was these kinds of shows that interested me. And only these shows.

12 days of anime #6: BEST FUCKING SHOW EVER!!!!

If I were to materialize sex into a anime, that anime’s name would be Honey and Clover.  But no sex before you are married, right? 😀 You can watch Honey and Clover as a substitute before then.  Running Honey and Clover was the best decision Noitamina ever made.  The show doesn’t have samurai-esque massive “mobile suits” or exceedingly high amounts of fanservice.  The selling point is its ability to display a slice of life as it really is.  Except for Morita.  He’s just awesomely kickass.

12 days of anime #7: asread shatters my expectations, laughing all the while

My favourite anime this year is so far, without a doubt, Mirai Nikki. In a year with Madoka Magica looming over everyone’s heads as the show that’s going to be pointed at for years to come as a high point in anime’s history, that’s an odd thing to say. Honestly, going purely off of their respective plots, Madoka wins hands down, but there’s something about Mirai Nikki that I absolutely love, and I’ve only ever felt it with very few pieces of entertainment, most notably my favourite film of all time, Fight Club. It happens when something is executed in such a manner that something explodes inside of me, letting me know that whatever it is I’m experiencing, it’s the best thing I could ever be doing in that moment, and Mirai Nikki captures that brilliantly.
