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.

Sound! Euphonium Review

Sound! Euphonium

Synopsis

The story follows Oumae Kumiko who wants a new life in her new highschool. During middle school, her concert band got a ‘dud gold’ for the prefecture competition so she wants to forget about it and get away from it. However, her new friends in highschool insisted her on joining the school’s ‘helpless’ concert band and she joined the very thing she wanted to get away with full of hesitation.

Review

This is NOT another version of K-on… because let’s be real, after seeing the cover photo everyone thinks it’s just another KyoAni’s cutesy girl show. So did I. Until I actually watch the anime that is. Well to be honest, even if this anime is just another Moe show, I’d watch it anyway because of the beautiful animation.  But I have to say that this anime rocks hard as the primary focus is not on the Moe side.

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)

K-ON Movie Review

Synopsis

High school is coming an end and graduation day is getting very near. The senior club members of the Light Music Club decided to go on a graduation trip in London.

Review

Yes!! I finally managed to review the whole sequel of K-ON. I’m the type of person who will almost certainly watch the sequel of an anime even if the I don’t particularly like the first season of the show (that means I really should check out the second season of Seitokai Yakuindomo by now) and so far, watching that way is really worth it. Take The Haruhi Suzumiya series for example, I don’t like the series but I truly adore the movie. I think I’ll continue to watch anime like this until I found one anime that really pisses me off from start to finish. That said, I think it’s time for us to get into the review.

Fan Covers Amaze Me

TYER Click

Lately (or maybe a long time ago but I just didn’t notice), there has been a lot of English fan covers of anime songs most of it are anime openings and endings. I’ve been listening to their covers every now and again and every time I listen to them, they always amaze me. If I don’t know the original song, I don’t listen to the fan covers so my exposure towards fan covers are limited but again, they always amaze me.
