Review

My first reaction when I was watching this anime was “holy crap, the anime girls are actually dancing!!”. The opening scene is very awesome, I never skipped it because the song is very catchy and well, THE GIRLS DANCE!!! I’ve never seen anime girls dancing before as this is my first idol anime I’ve ever watched so this is a new and amazing thing for me. (But shortly after finishing this anime, I found this video which I think is more amazing)

Notify the bloggers you included.

Keep the rules in your post to make it easy for everyone to know what to do!

 

My random facts:

1) My friends see and categorize me as smart just because I scored higher than them in exams. I don’t consider myself as a smart person (by smart I mean naturally smart. Like, you don’t have to study to get high scores). However, it’s fun being the ‘smartest’ person in the group because you can talk big. But it’s not fun at the same time because you know you are actually not smart.

2)  Gaming is NOT my hobby. It used to be but not anymore because I think gaming is like doing the same thing over and over again. The only difference is the graphic for each newer games increased ever so slightly. Oh, and I’m talking about video games (of course). But you know, Total War: Shogun 2 is really good I must say.

3) Playing basketball is one of my hobby. Many people especially guys here will play badminton or football or something similar but I think it’s too common so I tried something different. I tried basketball and it turned out that I really like playing this sport. However, my physical disadvantage (I’m way too short for this sport) really frustrates me. But hey, at least I enjoy playing it even though I lose most of the time especially in the beginning. It’s not like I can’t play other sports. I can play badminton pretty well but I prefer basketball because it’s more enjoyable and well, not many people play it so I can consider myself special haha… However, I don’t play basketball much now.

4) Playing Basketball pretty much gives me the idea of effort can overcome talent. I mean, I’m not naturally talented in the sport and I don’t have physical advantages but after some time playing and practicing that sport, I got better and better to the point that I could beat some other more talented players who didn’t practice. That is one of the reason why I started writing even though I know I don’t have the talent. Because I know by experience that if I put enough effort on it, I could be a better than those gifted people.

5) I haven’t watched any anime for a week now… please help me.

I won’t nominate anybody now because well, I think other bloggers have enough awards to tackle.

There were than stranded at the bottom of the cliff for days//two weeks.

Review

Okay now, why didn’t I review the whole anime? Well, that’s because I think all the other characters’ background stories are pretty…forgettable. Yes the characters are strong and their background stories are tragic and dark but I just I don’t remember much from other characters. That’s because the pacing of the anime is too rushed, I didn’t have the time to really get attached to any of the characters except Amane. The bakcground story of Amane is, to me, well paced. I feel thrilling only when watching Amane’s route. It is the best background story in the series in my opinion. So, let’s just go to what I think about her background story.
