Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru Review

81989Sometimes you watch one show that, come to find out, is actually connected to another anime! This can happen in many ways, shapes, and forms. It could be a side story to a show, a prequel or sequel, or even a retelling of the story in a different setting or timeline. It is not a necessarily NEW concept and has happened to me very few times. This, sort of, happened to me with the anime that we are discussing today.  I am currently watching Katsugeki Touken/Ranbu and after an especially intense episode I remembered that a story about some of the same characters had been told back in the Fall 2016 Anime season. A show that I did not watch because that was during my anime/blogging hiatus. The important thing to remember about this show is that while they center on the same characters and have the same source material, the story is different. But I’m getting ahead of myself!

So here is my 46th Anime Review for a show that I had planned to watch and got around to when I got WAY to into an alternate telling of his story: Touken Ranbu Hanamaru.

Welcome back everybody to Day 3 of Anniversary Review Week! I am actually really excited for the anime we are reviewing today because I love it so much.

Kyoukai no Kanata Review

The first episode of a show, the pilot episode, is the episode that is supposed to draw you in and make you want to see what becomes of the series as a whole. On TV in the US, if a show’s pilot does not do well then the show does not happen. Now I do not know a lot about the anime industry, but from what I have seen in Shirobako once a show is decided it goes on until its full run is over. Even if the first episode is slow and boring, the show will go on. Why am I talking about this? Well back in 2013 when the show I am reviewing today originally aired, I watched the first episode and was honestly not impressed. However, as the show went on I kept hearing nothing but positive reviews of this show. Looking into it while doing research for this review I learned that opinions of this review are either really positive, or kind of negative. There is no real in between. Which I find very interesting.

So here is my 24th Anime Review for a show that I had honestly no idea what to expect going in: Kyoukai no Kanata.

Fruits Basket Review

After doing that whole week of reviews, I feel like I have not done a review in a long time. Maybe that is some of the motivation that I need. Hahaha. Well we will see. Anyway, I was looking for my next anime to review so I was looking though my life of anime that I have watched. Yes I keep track of all of that. I was scrolling down the list when I spotted one of the first anime that I watched completely on the internet. Why does this matter, you ask? Well it does not matter. I just saw it and remembered watching the whole thing on my family’s almost 10-year-old computer. So I thought that it would be fun to do. It is also a favorite anime of mine.

Here I am with my 19th Anime Review!! A show that is surprisingly a lot older than I thought it was: Fruits Basket

Akatsuki no Yona Review

Welcome back to Day 3 of Anniversary Review Week! I really do hope that you guys are enjoying this week of reviews. I’m getting to reminisce a lot about the first time that I watched these shows, and how much I loved them while watching them for the first time.

The show that I am reviewing today is actually the newest show out of the eight. A lot of the shows are shows that I have found over the years, but this one ended only a few months ago. I thought that this show earned a spot because I enjoyed watching it from week to week.

So without further adieu….here is my 13th Anime Review and Day 3 of Anniversary Review Week!! The newest show out of the eight: Akatsuki no Yona.

Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle Review

Here it is!! Just like I promised….well kind of. I have actually been planning on writing this review for a while. Then when the whole Anime Challenge started I was still watching a different anime (One I have, unfortunately, not finished watching yet but will soon). I had been planning on doing this review though because it is a show that I highly recommended to my best friend. She of course is no longer my friend so I can’t like….ask her if she was happy I recommended it. I mean really I have no wish to talk to her EVER again. I don’t know why in the world I mentioned that. You can ignore the last sentence.

Anyway, here it is my fifth anime review! A review of the anime Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle.

La Corda d’Oro Review

First of all I would like to apologize about how late this review is. I have been really busy trying to get ready for college that I had no time to not only write this, but also rewatch this anime. I was in the middle of watching a different anime to review when I realized it was too similar to my previous reviews so I went with something different. The review of that anime will come later. So I changed and went to a different genre. I am truly sorry for the delay but cannot honestly promise a finite schedule on my reviews because of school, but I promise at least once a week…maybe…I’ll try really hard.

Here is my fourth anime review. A review of the anime La Corda d’Oro!!!

Red Data Girl Review

My third review!! I realized that this is already the second anime that I have reviewed that pertains to the supernatural, such as yokai. I know what you’re thinking. “If you realize that why don’t you review a different kind of anime?” Well honestly for a few selfish reasons. With my first few anime I wanted to review anime that either I know very well, such as Gundam 00, or anime that I have recently watched, like the one I’m review now. So here it is! My review of Red Data Girl!
