I have never really been one to write segments on my blog, but I decided to try one out about a director who I seem to never have enough to say about. As the title suggests, I am referring to Miyazaki. As both a director and individual, Miyazaki is extremely interesting and expresses a lot of important ideas through his films.
In these posts which I have no set date to even be completed, I hope to explore some of the motifs and themes seen in a good deal of his films. And trust me, there are many! To start things off, I’m going to be talking about his repeated motif of water throughout his films. Read the rest of this entry »
I know I complain nearly every season about the lack of good anime, and this one isn’t really an exception, but instead of just being negative, I’ll give it credit for having a couple of series I totally approve of . The sequels are good and if you don’t count the dozens of short anime series released, you get left with a few good things.
For the most part, I can at least say everything seems to be entertaining. Also, in a time in my life where I’m having trouble organizing everything, a smaller anime load is probably for the best. Anyway, before I start to rant, enjoy the list that can be found after the jump! Read the rest of this entry »
This has been a terrible year for anime. Sure, I’m someone who likes to be entertained above all else, but at the end of the day I still like to find good quality series. With that said, this year has been seriously lacking of just that.
Anyway, this is my attempt to come up with my favourite series from the past year. Although there are a good deal of series I still need to finish watching, I still managed to complete 40, and from those I present to you the few that I actually found to be good. I hope you enjoy the list!
PS: I only count anime that finished in 2012. Read the rest of this entry »
This is my second year taking part in secret santa and this time I was given the choice of watching Giant Killing, Galaxy Angel, or the original Mobile Suite Gundam Movie Trilogy. I decided to go with the Gundam Trilogy, which turned out to be nearly seven hours of mecha action!
My knowledge on the Gundam world is weak. I’ve only ever seen the first season of Gundam 00, and although I enjoyed it, most people seem to think it’s one of the weaker ones in the franchise. I’ve wanted to venture more into Gundam series, so this film trilogy which covers the original series was the perfect place to start! Read the rest of this entry »
And so, my end of year lists begin!
I wait every year for this moment because they’re pretty much my favourite posts to make! This time we’re beginning with my favourite anime openings of the year! I may not have felt there were many good anime series from this year, but I’ll at least give it some credit for delivering a high number of awesome openings. There were even a lot of great endings, I might even make a post for them too, but it’s not on the top of my priority list right now. Anyway, enjoy the list! Read the rest of this entry »
