Four Years Mark: The Only 2018 Anime That I Watched

Fireworks
Happy anniversary to me! This blog is now four years old. Yes relatively, I can be called a veteran now in terms of how long I’ve been sticking around. However, in terms of actual posts, meh… Inconsistent content is kinda my brand now lol but I’ve been active for 6 months now so I hope I can continue to post regularly for at least another 6 months.

As I did in the past years, I will celebrate my anniversary by writing about shows that came out this year that I actually watched. For some reason that I’m unsure of, I don’t watch newer anime that much and I especially don’t watch seasonal anime. So can I fit ALL 2018 shows that I watched this year into one post? Yes, yes I can cause it’s only like 10 shows… Let’s begin.

Day 8 – Riko and Reg’s Sufferings in The Fourth Layer of The Abyss

Episode 10

Anime: Made in Abyss

I watched this anime knowing the glory behind it. I mean, people always gush about this anime not being only cutesy and generic and that it’s much darker than it looks. People also gush about how the world of the anime is stunningly beautiful. Because of these, I went and watched the anime with a very high expectation and with the preconceived notion that this anime is going to extremely great. But sadly, I didn’t find it all that interesting, at least not as much as other people told me so. The biggest drawback to me is that I just find the fantasy world of the anime not as interesting as I thought. The concept of the abyss is pretty great but I’m just not curious enough to know more about the abyss.

Day 7 – Kae’s Sudden Transformation

Kiss Him Not Me 4.png

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.

12 Days of Anime – Intro

Tomoko Peace Sign
Yep, 12 Days of Anime is just around the corner! If you don’t know, 12 days of anime is the time before Christmas when people post their most memorable anime moments of the year for 12 days straight from 14th of December to 25th of December, the day of Christmas. At least, that’s the original idea. Now, people simply have their own unique ways of doing the project but they keep it anime related.

I actually thought it was from 13th of December until 24th of December and then the next day, everyone will dedicate one post to celebrate Christmas. But I guess it’s doesn’t work that way.

This blog has existed for close to 4 years now. And it’s an anime blog. But I’ve never actually joined the annual 12 days of Anime project. Part of the reason is because I’m a very slow writer so it’s quite hard for me to post everyday for 12 days. However, this year, I’m determined to join it for the very first time. While many people have evolved their ways of doing this project, I’m going to stick with the classic. I’m going to post some of the best anime moments of the year for me. Of course, this is only limited to anime that I’ve seen this year, not anime that is released this year. So, expect some of the older anime to come up in my next few posts. Well, all this while I’ve been posting older anime anyway…

Perpetual Morning hosts this tradition so you can read the details there. Basically, they provide a Google spreadsheet so everyone who participates can give and link the details of their posts there. Every 12 Days of Anime posts will be gathered at one place. It’s pretty cool because I didn’t know this until like 4 days ago.

So yea, that’s my announcement for today. I’m doing the 12 Days of Anime for the first time. Look forward to it and goodbye for now ~

Online Social Anxiety??

I don’t interact much with people online. Not in any social media for that matter. Even in anonymous forums, or pretty much anywhere online, I just don’t interact with online people much. I honestly think that it  has to do with my social anxiety and the fact that I think it’s pointless to say anything online. Contradictory of myself who freaking has a blog! Hear me out though.

This problem is more of an online thing than a real life problem. Firstly, I can’t seem to comment on other people’s blog. I feel like the things that I have to say has little value or people don’t really care about it. I’m scared of unintentionally offending people so most of the time, I resolve to not commenting at all and just ‘like’ their contents. This sometimes frustrates me because there are times when I think I have something to say but as soon as I wanted to type those words in the comment section, my brain became numb and I forgot everything that I wanted to say. Yea I hate that.

Hanako’s Expression in Asobi Asobase

I recently watched one of the funniest anime I’ve seen which is Asobi Asobase. If you follow the seasonal anime, I don’t think you would miss this freaking good comedy anime in the summer season 2018. I love this series, laughing pretty much the whole time watching it. The OP is very misleading making the three main characters look super innocent and treat each other like best friend forever. Oh man let me tell you, it’s the complete opposite.

But while I like the series as a whole, I think Hanako is the best the series has to offer, from her character to her voice actress (I love her voice) and most importantly, her facial expressions. Especially her facial expressions, seriously. And so because I love her so much, I’m here to present you Hanako’s various expressions.
