My favourite kind of anime to watch during the spring season includes nostalgic old-school things and anime that ooze feel-good warmth and fluff. So, today I wanted to share with you a newer series that won my heart over utterly when it simulcasted last year, and this little goody is called Horimiya.
Ghost Hunt is a shōjo, supernatural mystery series about a group of psychic researchers that investigate paranormal incidents and try to resolve them where they can. This title had been on my watchlist for an embarrassingly long time, and when I started craving a good mystery, ghostly series, I picked this up. It ended up being quite glorious!
This is one of those anime that I can gush about for pages and pages, and it’s also one that a lot of people have heard of yet have not watched for any number of reasons. Since I thoroughly appreciated the first-time experience of viewing Astra Lost in Space, I wanted to create a write-up of my five favourite attributes
Whenever people ask me for recommendations of underrated anime serials, Witch Hunter Robin is one that immediately slips to mind. It was one of those titles that left an imprint for many years to come, making it rather unforgettable and always waiting to be shared. There were so many details about this particular anime that stood out to me in the vast ocean of similarly-themed shows and because of that, it has cemented itself as one of my favourite occult, crime serials to date.
Another bit I appreciated was the symbolism. There are many things in this sci-fi treat that can leave the watcher sitting in a deeply contemplative state after the credits have rolled on by, yet that symbolism has to be the most powerful. For example,
Episode four kicks off with the optimism that I’ve grown to expect and appreciate from our acting captain. While he acknowledges that they are lost in space and it can be scary, they should also take advantage of their unique situation and use it for valuable life lessons, something that resonates through the entire segment.
I like to think of these as simple comforts, little discoveries that for some reason will fill my little heart with joy. Because even though it’s essentially mediocre, the title will still pop into my mind when asked for recommendations. This unanticipated treat of a series that I’d like to discuss today is Earl and Fairy.
Snow White with the Red Hair (赤髪の白雪姫) is a 2015 shōjo, romance, slice-of-life anime series that was produced by Studio Bones and directed by Masahiro Andō with two seasons and twenty-four total episodes. It became a marvellously surprising gem for me when I watched both seasons back in December. I desperately needed a happy distraction, something to make me feel an air of optimism as we shifted into the new year and this anime fulfilled all of that and more. Today, I want to share five reasons why y’all should watch this show if you haven’t picked it up yet.
Yo, chums. I hope this post finds you well. It’s been over a month since my last interaction here on BiblioNyan, so much so that it feels rather strange putting this thing together right now. But I’m not here to give any updates today, at least not in the ways you’d expect. I have a full detailed life and blog update hitting this space on Monday. Today, I’m here seeking your assistance.
October was such a fabulous month of anime-RE-watching shenanigans. With the exception of two titles, I gave everything on this list an eight or higher. I’m not someone who gives out eights, nines, and especially tens that easily. So, when I do discover (or re-discover, in this case) anime that blow my fucking mind where I least expect them to, those higher numbers come dancing out, along with an irrepressible yearning to add it to my collection.
I gathered a list of twelve anime that I have discovered many people don’t realise came from books. My information is based on the many conversations I have had with fellow otaku both online and in-real-life, both friends and (mostly) strangers alike. Chock this up as a post inspired by a lengthy observation of the community. For these titles, I’m proud to say that I have actually read almost all of the novels from the list and seen almost as many of the adaptations.
Self-quarantine and social distancing have been a wild ride. Some days I feel like I’m on top of the fucking world and on others, I sort of just want to build a fort in the corner of my bedroom or giant ass closet and hibernate until the ugliness of the world finally goes away. Since…
It feels strange to be sitting here thinking about the Winter 2020 simulcast season. Originally, I wasn’t planning on watching any of the airing shows as I expected to be ridiculously busy with university coursework. However, when my health took a turn for the worst in October, it shoved all of my plans for the…
Good morning, chums! I hope your week has been treating you well thus far! I must say that mine has been rather decent and productive, which makes me feel happy. 😊 Today, I am reaching out to all of you wonderful manga readers and anime watchers! I need your help. With the Spring season looming…
Today I decided to compile a list of my absolute favourite feel-good anime titles and share them all with you! Whenever I’m feeling really down, or if my depression is alive with a conviction, I like to turn to these shows because they always manage to make me laugh, smile, and feel fuzzy all over.…
