After an abysmal year in 2014 in terms of post entries due to university and related, in an attempt to write more in 2015 I’ll aim to write at least one blog post every month this year. So for my first article of the year I’m going to review a sweet and innocent romantic comedy manga that I’ve been reading that recently finished; Bocchi na Bokura no Renai Jijou!
It’s been months since I had the proper time to settle down and write up a blog post about anything. Well, I imply I’m settling down now and it isn’t as if I have a bunch of untouched assignments to complete hue hue hue.
From vanishing planes and ebola to favourite Love Lives and Nature Valley bars, 2014 has been a pleasant year for anime, I can’t say for all because this is the first year I’ve seen less anime than the years before, and most of the ones I followed were ones I found the most interesting to stick with till the end (coughGLASSLIPcough). I was planning to do a ‘12 Days of Anime’ type of posts but I wanted to had done it properly by starting on Christmas day, but then I realise that would overlap new years day which would defeat my intentions of rounding everything off I wanted so say before the new year. So I decided to fight the system and just make a good old fashioned ‘Top XX’ moments of the year.
Below lists the top anime moments that happened to me throughout this year as well as my top 14 list of best and worst anime and songs followed shortly after!
Don’t worry guys, I’m not dead.
I’ve been going to anime conventions for quite some time now, but it’s hard to believe that I have been attending for over six years, and it’s been a while ago since my last blog post about it. I’ve gotta say from experience times have changed. Back then used to attend with my sister just so that I could get hold of all the anime and manga goods I wouldn’t have gotten otherwise because I was too
underaged for online shopping. Now that I have a debit card and an income I only really go just to score some sweet deals and meet people I’ve spoken to on Twitter ( or as I would like to call it Anitwitter). This time around I got to use my new Nikon D3300 DSLR camera I finally bought early this year; finally graduating from the casual-tier point and shoots I’ve been using this whole time.
It’s hard to believe that Hayate no Gotoku! surpassed ten years of serialisation. Ten years, that’s nearly double the amount of year’s I’ve been living lol. Even though I started following Hayate since 2007 it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long since I first came across Hayate in one of those free manga taster books Viz Media used to make years ago when they had spare change. Leaving aside my disappointment that Hata yet again shot himself in the foot by wasting more OVA opportunities, on with the episodic review.
Akuma no Riddle
I’ve seen some shit
Akuma no Riddle taught me that an anime about assassination doesn’t need to include assassination at all.
Those were some pretty fireworks.
Man this shit is so awesome on so many motherfucking levels yo.
I was talking to one of my anime friends and they sent me 7 videos with the name only labelled “Golden”. I said to them; What’s this shit? They just giggled and said “Just watch them and MAKE SURE YOU DON’T PUNCH YOUR COMPUTER WHEN WATCHING IT!”. Then I thought it was some weird haremfuck or some strange moeshit but as I watched the first video, I was like “Yo… what the fuck…”
