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.

Toradora Review

toradora-anime

Synopsis

Takasu Ryuji likes Aisaka Taiga’s best friend Kushieda Minori. Aisaka Taiga likes Takasu Ryuji’s closest friend Kitamura Yusaku. Ryuji finds out who Taiga likes and Taiga finds out who Ryuji likes. Thus, they make a promise to help each other out.

Review

You know, summarizing a romance anime is pretty easy because the premise is really simple. But for people only reading the synopsis, they might be turned off by it (and confused because of the many names). It’s basically the same like any other romance drama out there. Simply said, the appeal of a romance genre is not in the plot but in the characters. So then, let’s go straight to the characters. I’ll explain about the two main characters pretty briefly because I don’t really think they’re that interesting compared to other characters.

One Year Mark: The Only 2015 Anime That I Watched

anime-fireworks

That’s right, this blog is now one year old WOHOOO!!!! YEEEAAHHHH!!!! And that’s about it.

Since this blog’s one year anniversary is the end of the year, I thought to share my thoughts on very few anime that came out this year that I actually watched. I’ve mentioned this a few times before, I don’t watch that much anime as many other anime fan do. So these are the only titles this year that I got around to watch.

Nichijou Review

Arm_wrestling_ep3.png

Synopsis

The anime is about the everyday normal lives of two main group of characters. The first one is Yukko, a highschool girl and her two best friends Mio and Mai. The second is Nano, a teenage robot invented by an 8 year old girl named Hakase Shinonome who also invented a scarf that can make animals talk. Well, that’s not normal at all but whatever.

Review

I stumbled upon a video about Yukko saying ‘selamat pagi’ and it intrigued me. Though I didn’t decide to watch it right after. A few months after, I watched a couple of videos on YouTube regarding Nichijou and found it super funny so I thought I really should just watch the entire series. That’s how I got into this anime.

Nagi no Asukara Review

Nagi no asukara

Synopsis

Four middle schoolers Hikari, Chisaki, Manaka and Kaname have to move to a new school on the surface after their school is closed due to low number of students. Being sea dwellers, they find it a bit hard to accommodate and comfort themselves in their new school as both the sea dwellers and the surface dwellers have prejudice attitude towards each other.

The first surface dwellers to actually become friends with the sea dwellers is Tsumugu but this actually only makes their relationship much more complicated.

Review

I watched a pretty similar anime called Anonatsu de Matteru/Waiting in The Summer and thought that the love triangles in that anime is not enough. And then I watched this anime, Nagi no Asukara and thought “this is exactly what I was looking for all this while!!! All the very deliberately convoluted love triangles, this anime is perfect!!!” Don’t get me wrong, I really like Anonatsu but I think I might like it more if the love triangles are more complicated and I think that the ending is not as satisfying.

True Tears Review

true-tears_00410333

Synopsis

The story revolves around Nakagami Shinichirou, a highschool boy and his three love interests, Yuasa Hiromi, Isurugi Noe and Andou Aiko. That’s all. That’s pretty much the whole story.

Review

I don’t know why but I was in a time where I felt the hunger for romance drama anime. I desired it, felt the need for it. Maybe because I have just finished Code Geass, a pretty badass, convoluted and depressing anime recently, I just need something more toned down. After going through some anime lists, I decided to watch this on a whim and I’m really really glad I watched this. This could be one of my favourite anime of all time!!

Now, while the synopsis up there sounds like this is a bland, boring and cliché romance anime, it certainly not. The only cliché trait available is the setting. Let’s talk about the characters first.
