The Dark Horror Genre in Anime

Horror anime

I have a confession… I have never watched a single horror genre anime in my life. Not even the popular anime, Another. Okay another confession… I actually don’t know what classifies an anime as a horror. If something like Future Diary or Death Note is considered a ‘horror anime’ than I’ve watched quite a few of anime like that. If horror anime should be similar to usual horror movies, than I don’t think I’ve watched any. Is there any real horror anime to begin with?

Shounen Anime

It’s safe to say that shounen anime is the most popular genre of anime. From the big three of Naruto, One Piece and Bleach, shounen anime somehow wins the audience attention including myself.

I really don’t get how the shounen anime is categorized. It’s basically anime targeted towards young boys right? Is that the only category that they narrow? I mean, sure whatever young boys like, right? Of course the most popular is action series. But young boys also like comedy and cute girls. Are those anime considered shounen? How come Death Note is considered shounen? It barely has any action scenes!!!

Slice of Life, Moe and Comedy in Anime

 

K on.jpeg

Is there any ‘slice of life’ drama out there other than anime? Well usually it is associated with comedy.

Slice of life, by definition should explore the representation of our lives. It should represent our daily lives in a realistic manner. It is usually about people’s ordinary life routine which more often than not, is mundane.

However, anime seems to be doing quite the opposite. True, they are still about ordinary daily lives but somehow they managed to make it more interesting than it should be. Slice of life is usually combined with comedy and Moe.

Takanashi X Inami is The Cutest Anime Couple Ever!

takanashi-and-inami

Okay not really. My favourite couple is probably Okabe and Kurisu from Steins;Gate. But we’re not here to talk about them, we’re here to talk about a couple in an anime I just finished recently. Working! (it’s an anime title).

*Spoilers ahead so proceed with caution*

Working! Has two main ships. One is Satou and Todoroki and another one is Takanashi and Inami. Obviously, my favourite couple in this series is the latter. The main reason is because Inami blushes ALL the time and that makes the mundane and cliché scenes cute and adorable.

Working! (Wagnaria!) Review

Synopsis

Takanashi Souta is persuaded by the cute and small Taneshima Popura to work part time in a family restaurant called Wagnaria. Due to his fondness over small and cute things, Takanashi accepted the offer. Little does he know that the restaurant are full of weird and eccentric people. But, he himself is weird too…

Review

I started watching this anime only for stress relieve. I didn’t expect it to be that good. Judging by the cover alone I thought it was just another comedy anime. It turns out that it is more than that. The comedy, for one really hits my taste and the plot too is really compelling especially when they are given a chance to make multiple seasons.

Two Years Mark: The Only 2016 Anime That I watched

anime-new-year

Two years have passed very fast. The upside is that I managed to hold on to this blog for this long which is to me, great. The downside is that I haven’t been posting much. However, I’m a very stubborn guy. Even though this blog is pretty much on a shutdown phase, I still don’t want to stop blogging. That’s why I keep on coming to this blog even after a long sudden hiatus. I’ll say this over and over again, I’m not stopping this blogging thing anytime soon.

Because I started this blog at the end of the year, I decided to celebrate its birthday by writing about every anime that I watched that came out in that particular year. Last time, I managed to write on time. This time, it got a bit delayed. But hey, it’s better late than never right? So these are ALL the anime that came out in 2016 that I actually watched. They’re more than last year…

Tari Tari: A Realistic and Heartwarming Tale of Friendship

tari-tari_11_group_photo

Synopsis

These five students are in the same class and later on, the same club because of different reasons. Konatsu wants to create a vocal music club and asked her best friend Sawa to join her. Wakana is invited to join the club because of her musical talent. Taichi joins the club hesitantly after being challenged by Konatsu and Wein joins the club because… well, just because. Joining the club, they all slowly familiarize with each other and become closer. As close as a highschool friendship can go that is.

Review

For all its worth, I like really this anime because it depicts a pretty realistic highschool friendship. We all have passed this phase, having a group of friends which are pretty close but in reality, aren’t actually very close. We consider each other as friends only because we’re in the same class, or we’re in the same club, or we’re roommates. That’s pretty much what this anime is all about. So, these are the reasons why I like Tari Tari.
