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.

This Art Club Has a Problem Episode 1: The First Joke, Hairstyle and Hair Colour

cutesy usami

Yomu started a WordPress collaboration project about reviewing every episode of an anime called ‘This Art Club Has a Problem’. The twist here is that we can choose from a number of themes Yomu has listed for every episode so that different people would have very different approach to the anime. It’s a pretty awesome idea!

I was a bit hesitant to join this collab but decided to do it anyway because what could happen? I wanted to try and be a bit critical and analytical than I usually am so watching an anime with a very specific theme is one way to do it. Yomu’s collaboration projects gives me the opportunity for me to try. Thank you for starting this project, Yomu! Also, you are still very welcomed to be involved in this collab.

Well then, let’s begin.

Kaguya-sama: Love is War First Impressions

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.

Day 12 – Friendship Meow Dance

Anime: Chio’s School Road

Save the best for the last. For those who haven’t watched this anime, I highly recommend watching it. It’s as funny as Asobi Asobase but weirder. If you like Asobi Asobase, you’ll like this. Also, watch the dub. I honestly think it’s much better than the sub.

To me, the most memorable scene in the whole anime is the MananaChio friendship dance. So, one day, Chio and Manana are going to school, like any normal day. However, this time, Shinozuka follows them out of ‘obligation’ because she’s the disciplinary committee of the school and rumours have it that those two are the school’s trouble makers outside of school. Upon following, she finds out that Manana and Chio treat each other very badly as if they aren’t friends at all. Frustrated by it, she confronts those two and asks them to prove their friendship.

Day 7 – Kae’s Sudden Transformation

Anime: Kiss Him, Not Me

I mentioned in my review that this particular scene was what made me try this anime in the first place. If you don’t know the scene, it’s actually in the first episode where Kae, the main character transforms from being fat to being super slender as a result of her depression. She does not get out of her room and does not even eat for a week. The result of it is very positive though, at least towards her body.

Day 6 – Anzu’s Separation From The Homeless People

Anime: Hina Festival

Hina Festival is a comedy dominant anime and a very great one too. It’s been a long time since I actually laughed that much watching a series. But with all the abundance of funny moments, the anime also slides in some of the most emotional moments and one of them is when Anzu is forced to be separated from the homeless society she’s grown attached to.

Day 3 – Amano’s Confession Towards Tendou

Anime: Gamers!

First of all you just have to know that I extremely love this anime. It doesn’t have any heavy plot or complicated emotional romance or even out of the world, nichijou-like comedy but I love it regardless.

My favourite scene in the entire anime has to be when Amano accidentally confesses towards Tendou. The whole scene is pure comedy gold. We have the build up almost the whole episode leading up to that very moment in time. The whole confession thing is set up by different people for different purpose of their own personal importance and interest.
