First Impressions: Irozuku Sekai no Ashita Kara Episode 1 – 3

Irozuku 3

I picked this show mainly because it’s from PA Works. PA Works rarely disappoints me and almost always does things right. The genre of anime they usually produce is also my taste so that’s a major plus for me. So this season, this is the only anime… that I watch… Yeah, I actually don’t watch anime that much. Let’s dive in.

The basic premise of the story is about a girl named Tsukishiro Hitomi who by some unknown reason loses the ability to see colours. She sees the world in only black and white. She is soon transported to the past by her grandmother’s magic to the era when her grandmother was still in highschool. Not knowing the reason or purpose of being transported, she struggles to find a way to get back to the present while trying to adapt to the new world she’s currently living in.

Steins; Gate 0: A Sequel To an Already Perfect Ending

Steins Gate Zero 1

Hey there friends! Okay so I’m gonna talk about Steins; Gate 0 now. Firstly, Steins; Gate 0 is a really great anime. Watch it if haven’t already and also watch the original Steins; Gate. They are some of the best anime of all time, trust me.

If you’re not familiar with the series, let me explain to you the basic premise of the anime. This is a time travel anime and the series has 3 major worldlines, the first is alpha worldline, the second is beta worldline and the third is the Steins; Gate worldline. The alpha and beta worldlines are dystopian worldlines just in different ways but the Steins; Gate worldline is the utopian worldline which is the worldline that the characters are trying to pursue.

Most sequels don’t do justice to the prequel especially when the prequel already has a ‘perfect ending’. When the ending of a prequel is so good, the sequel usually ruins the prequel making its ending quite insignificant in some ways. And I dare say that the ending of the original Steins; Gate is already as ‘perfect’ it is.

Which is why Steins; Gate Load Region of Deja Vu, the sequel movie of the original Steins; Gate is very much forgettable because the story doesn’t need to be. It doesn’t need to exist. The ending of Steins; Gate is already perfect so to add anything to it would just ruin it.

Hina Festival: I Feel Really Bad for Hitomi

Hitomi 4

I’m pretty sure many people watched last season’s Hinamatsuri/ Hina Festival right? It’s one of the highlights of last season. Well of course, last season’s anime were a bit sporadic, having so many ‘highlight of the season’ anime To the point there was not one anime that got exclusive focus from the fandom. Not even My Hero Academia.

In any case, I love Hina Festival. It’s one the funniest anime I’ve ever watched (The funniest is SKET Dance. I haven’t watched Gintama, I’m so sorry). Now I’ve even finished reading the manga until the latest chapter, waiting very patiently for more chapters to come. The characters are interesting, funny most of the time and have character growth.Most of the comedic timing is just perfect. It also has some very emotional and touching moments especially when (best girl) Anzu is on screen. Those are my favourite moments in the anime.
