Exploring the World of Anime

You Wanted Flavor?

So for my 60th post I’m going to write about…absolutely nothing.

Yeah, I don’t have any of that.

I just thought I’d check in with you all because I have been pretty busy with some major life changes so I haven’t had the time to post my once a week or comment on others’ blogs. Once everything gets stable in a couple of weeks or so, I should be back to blogging regularly (my version of regularly). Quick rundown on what I’m still watching:

1. Uchū Kyōdai (Space Brothers) – last episode was pretty darn cool, too short as usual. Love that all the characters are adults!

2. Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita (Humanity Has Declined) – This show is a mindfourletterword. Does anyone have an idea what’s going on? No? Neither do I but I really don’t care. So far it’s been a fun ride.

3. Kokoro Connect – Just started watching this, unsure of my feelings at this point.

4. Natsuyuki Rendezvous – This is actually my first Josei and though its on the fantasy side with the ghost and Ryosuke being transported to the ghost’s sketchbook, I like it. It’s a favorite, very sweet and romantic. I’m not big on romance but I like this which may be due to the characters being more mature than your average anime characters. If anyone knows of any shows similar to this, please let me know. I am very interested in watching anime with adults that are slice of life or even romantic.

5. I finally finished watching Nichijou. Not sure what took me so long, probably because I was watching so many other shows. I guess I will get around to finishing Sket Dance one of these days but Nichijou was definitely a great show and one I would like to own.

That’s all for now. Keep watching anime!


  1. Good to see you back (even if it’s just for a quick update)!

    • Yeah, I had to check in. My blog’s not dead!

  2. Nice, Nichijou is the best! A true masterpiece in comedy anime, if not anime in general. :>
    Looks like you’re watching shows I’m watching as well this season–namely Humanity, Kokoro, and Natsuyuki. All great shows in my opinion! My favorite though has to be Humanity. It’s just so different from anything else I’ve ever seen.

    • I haven’t decided yet how I feel about Kokoro. If I’m able to formulate a clear thought process about my feelings, I may blog on it a couple of weeks or so. This season has brought out a couple of gems and I’m happy about that because I really needed something good and new while I’m watching old shows like Evangelion.

  3. Nice to hear from you again! 🙂 I agree with Cholisose that your anime choices for this season are among (if not THE) best things currently airing, and Nichijou is amazing as well. I’d also love to own it, but I don’t fancy the chances of it getting a UK release. 😦

    • I just don’t understand why things just can’t be available worldwide. Why does it have to be released in only certain areas? I guess that’s one downside of technology, you know what you’re not getting. I’ll try to become more consistent in a few weeks.

      • I’d import a lot more anime from the USA if it wasn’t for DVD regioning… Strangely, Japan and the UK both use region 2 DVDs, but I can’t really import from there either if it comes without subtitles. 😛

  4. Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita – right now it’s a toss up for me as to whether the fairies are real or whether “Watashi” has a VERY lucid imagination. Either way so far it has been a very interesting “trip”. Also either way, the fairies seem to share a whole lot in comment with Celtic ‘fairies’ in terms of their considerable differences from human thought patterns.

    Kokoro Connect – probably not for “everybody”, this can be an intense emotional roller coaster if you get into it.

    “I finally finished watching Nichijou.” – about time (smile). Actually, Nichijou was a mixed bag for me. A fair amount of the material I just didn’t find all that interesting. For the most part I enjoyed the antics of Yuuko, Mai and Mio, though Mai could get on my nerves. However, I at least smiled with ANY scene involving Nano. I took to her situation immediately and my main interest in the show become to see how she and her new friends would work it out. As Yuuko told her, “Nano-chan, you’re just Nano-chan.”

    • Nano was the best part of Nichijou. Especially loved the scenes with her and the Professor. I still wonder why such a small child was a “professor”, lived on her own, and no one noticed.

      That is an interesting way to look at Jinrui wa Sutai Shimashita regarding the realness of the fairies. However, her grandfather seems to know they exist as does the Assistant. The fairies are darkly hilarious. They seem to see things in black and white and need only their egos to be stroked. I truly enjoy the show.
