One Outs Review

one outs 4

Synopsis

Tokuchi Toua is a master gambler who plays a simplified version of baseball called ‘one outs’. The rule of one outs is very simple, there is one pitcher and one batter. If the ball strikes three times, the pitcher wins but if the ball goes out of the infield, the batter wins. He is the unbeatable one outs player in the Okinawa area until one day, he is (kinda) defeated by a professional veteran batter named Kojima Hiromichi. He is persuaded by Kojima to join his team, the Lycoans baseball club and be a professional baseball player. He accepts it.

He then meets the team owner and negotiates a contract that has a ridiculously great disadvantage to his side; for every out he records, he will earn 5 million yen but for every run scored against him, he has to pay 50 million yen to the owner.

Review

I’ve heard people say that this anime has many similarities with Death Note because of the mind games. Since they said it was similar to Death Note which is one of my favourite anime series, I thought to give this anime a try. And oh boy did I enjoy the hell out of this anime.

Nichijou Review

Synopsis

The anime is about the everyday normal lives of two main group of characters. The first one is Yukko, a highschool girl and her two best friends Mio and Mai. The second is Nano, a teenage robot invented by an 8 year old girl named Hakase Shinonome who also invented a scarf that can make animals talk. Well, that’s not normal at all but whatever.

Review

I stumbled upon a video about Yukko saying ‘selamat pagi’ and it intrigued me. Though I didn’t decide to watch it right after. A few months after, I watched a couple of videos on YouTube regarding Nichijou and found it super funny so I thought I really should just watch the entire series. That’s how I got into this anime.

Nagi no Asukara Review

Nagi no asukara

Synopsis

Four middle schoolers Hikari, Chisaki, Manaka and Kaname have to move to a new school on the surface after their school is closed due to low number of students. Being sea dwellers, they find it a bit hard to accommodate and comfort themselves in their new school as both the sea dwellers and the surface dwellers have prejudice attitude towards each other.

The first surface dwellers to actually become friends with the sea dwellers is Tsumugu but this actually only makes their relationship much more complicated.

Review

I watched a pretty similar anime called Anonatsu de Matteru/Waiting in The Summer and thought that the love triangles in that anime is not enough. And then I watched this anime, Nagi no Asukara and thought “this is exactly what I was looking for all this while!!! All the very deliberately convoluted love triangles, this anime is perfect!!!” Don’t get me wrong, I really like Anonatsu but I think I might like it more if the love triangles are more complicated and I think that the ending is not as satisfying.
