Sometimes… when the new fad is not worth watching, You just got the urge to watch shows that aired before.

Well, for the sake of this post. I’ll just probably say what are the ideas run inside my head during that time.

  1. Tokyo Ravens.

Tokyo Ravens was one of the show where I really don’t have a choice but to watch it. (asides when the whole house produces a waterfall… you really don’t have much of a choice because the internet was far and the setup was a bit awkward… I tried to take this show… for once.

Tokyo Ravens is rather anti-climatic when it comes character development and the MC’s shining moment was when he actually get his own power (around 20th episode.) which is well, as much as the show was wasted on him.

Wishing he revived a bit earlier.

consolation: well every fight where Ootomo Jin is involved was a total badass.

Surfing the opponent's water... not impossible for him.

Addendum: Kon is adorable. a must have.


  1. Aria (my xth rewatch)[more like my 2nd]

Aria-Aria is slow, easy and sleep inducing show…

asdafavazvazBut seriously… It was a very good ride despite the fact that it was a truly slow experience. It has a charm where fast shows can’t compete. It has the sense of growing through the seasons and by experiences. It also has many wonderful scenes. It is a good coming-of-age story.

Extra picture:

I can't seem to find any shows with such faces as theirs.

  1. K-on! (so many re-watch that I forgotten how to count back)
in a nutshell.
in a nutshell.

K-on! back in the days was noisy, it was crazy and it truly has a ‘nonsense’ value to it. But, as far as my anime watching is concerned. K-on! was on of my few first animes that actually didn’t make sense when they didn’t and did make sense when they are making sense. It’s more like a ‘Schrodinger’s anime’ except that most of the times it sucks.

K-on! was; for better, for worse a show that makes us young (or old if you complain too much this show sucks) and makes you relive the moments you had back in the past.

  1. Minami-ke

I’ve heard Minami-ke back when I was still in my college years (more or like 4 years ago). But I never remembered of having the will to watch it. (partly to blame was of lack of DVDs in our place and the lack of info on this one.

Minami-ke was simple, it was something that we may relate to on some other times. This show was truly a good classic despite being a bit prone to use of bakayarou.

Hosaka is a crazy narcissist who is bent to make Haruka his wife (or at least join the Volleyball Team).
