Kaguya-sama Love is War Episode 6: Our Man Ishigami

Ishigami 5.png

This episode introduces us a new character by the name of Ishigami Yu. He is the emo, lonesome, NEET-like character who is apparently good at processing data. His expertise in processing data is what attracts the president to choose him to be the treasurer of the student council. How does he appear in the anime? By telling us he will disappear in a short while because he wants to quit being a student council member.

Kaguya-sama Love is War Episode 5: Unathletic President

Seasonal uniform change.png

Another episode of two tsundere flirting and hitting each other while trying desperately not to be obvious and failing horribly at every attempt from both parties. This episode, we start with the transition of their school uniform! Now they’re wearing their summer uniform!!! What’s the difference? They’re just wearing short sleeves that’s all. The president doesn’t change his uniform though…

Kaguya-sama Love is War Episode 4: Fujiwara is Actually Smart?

Kaguya and President.png

I was really curious to know how the intro of this episode would play out as all the previous episode’s intro have narration from the narrator. This episode finally breaks the tradition and cut the whole narration altogether. I’m guessing there will be no narration intro ever again in the future, which is a good thing.

This episode is divided into four different segments instead of only three in the previous episodes. The first segments revolves around Kaguya and the president wearing a cat ear. Seeing both the president and Kaguya desperately acting cool despite being very impressed with each other’s appearance after wearing the cat ears is a blast. I’d like to note here that the president is actually a really weak and vulnerable person. He’s just really good and hiding and faking it with his reliable and all-knowing persona. Speaking with Kaguya with a straight face but shivering knees whenever he thinks she is cute must be a norm for him. Kaguya on the other hand is not really good at hiding her excitement and as a result, we get to her ‘evil grin’.

Kaguya-sama Love is War Episode 3: That ED Makes This Anime Even More Hyped

Starting the episode with the narrator narrating the first few seconds, I honestly thought, oh man is he REALLY going to narrate the same thing again and waste four minutes of the content? But then they speed up the narration and basically skip the whole thing. I am utterly relieved by it. I also think it’s quite funny. I wonder how the intro of next episode is going to turn out.

BanG Dream! Season 2 First Impressions Episode 1 – 3

Bang Dream 7.png

I enjoyed watching the first season of the anime so I thought, why not give its second season a watch too?

First up, the major change of the anime is its animation. They basically adapted the rhythm game animation which is the 3D animation to the anime. Honestly, it looks a bit weird at first. It’s quite surprising though because I did play the game a little bit and I was actually impressed with the animation. I thought it was smooth and sparkling. The game is just pretty to look at. Granted, the characters in the game don’t move that much compared to the anime so maybe that’s why it looks weird in the anime. It doesn’t take long for me to get used to this new style of animation so that’s good.

Impressions: Kaguya-Sama Love is War Episode 2

I forgot to say this in my previous episode’s post but the opening song feels VERY retro! I feel like I’m watching a 90s series. It’s a fun song though so I don’t mind listening to it… over and over again.

There’s nothing much to say about this episode. It still uses the same formula as the previous one, with the whole episode being divided into three segments. So in these two episodes, we managed to cover 6 chapters of the manga! Well not exactly. The anime did skip quite a few chapters of the manga but it mainly skipped the skits that make zero progress to the story. In this episode, there is at least some progress. For one, more characters are introduced and I tell you, the new ‘Kabe-DOWN’ couple is hilarious from start to finish. I’d love to see them more.

Brain War 6.png

The awaited anime of the season finally aired. This anime is basically about two people named Kaguya and Miyuki liking each other but don’t want to confess or even admit their feelings because of their own ego. To them, whoever confesses or even implies a confession is the loser between the couple. So they execute their elaborated plans to lure the other person to accidentally imply a confession. It’s a battle of brains with a comedic twist to it.
