Summer 2014 – Week 6 Anime Review
Posted by avvesione in 2014 Summer, Anime on August 24, 2014
This week: an analysis on the subtitle of Aldnoah.Zero and the meaning of fiat justitia ruat caelum, thoughts on the rigid, formulaic pattern of storytelling in Barakamon, the lack of character independence and the emphasis of friendship in Glasslip, and looking at the difference (if there is a difference) between Lisa and moe anime girls in Zankyou no Terror.
12 Days of Anime (2013) – Day 7 – Anime Away from Home
Posted by avvesione in 12 Days of Anime, Anime, Me + Other Non-Anime Posts on December 19, 2013
Although I have watched anime away from home prior to this experience, it was always a momentary event. Whether it was watching an episode of Kare Kano in Italy in 2002 or bits and pieces of Nichijou while in Tokyo in 2012, I’ve experienced watching anime away from my computer or my TV. However, prior to this year, it had always been just an episode or parts of an episode. I also was not taking screenshots or blogging my thoughts on these episodes either. So when presented with the challenge of moving away from home for 3 months, from August to October, I wondered how my habits of watching anime and blogging anime would be impacted.
12 Days of Anime (2012) – Day 8 – Giving a Forgotten Anime a Chance
Posted by avvesione in 12 Days of Anime, Anime on December 18, 2012
Much like last year’s Day 8, when I wrote about sticking with a bad anime to find it somewhat entertaining and certainly worthwhile, this post will be able an anime I never gave a fair opportunity to when it aired in the past only try it now and find it enjoyable and definitely worth watching. It serves as an excellent reminder of the potential gems and stars among the forgotten or ignored anime of seasons or years bygone. Resting in obscurity or uncertainty, these anime were rejected or dropped due to flawed research, lacking prospects, evolving tastes, time constraints, or for whatever reason we decide not to watch an anime. However, when the opportunity appears, taking another chance with these anime may completely reverse our opinion on it simply based on the fact that we actually are watching the anime rather than just speculating about it. For me, that anime is Yuru Yuri, an anime I gave a second (or first?) chance to in 2012 and have loved it ever since.
12 Days of Anime (2012) – Day 12 – 13 Hours in Tokyo
Posted by avvesione in 12 Days of Anime, Anime, Manga, Me + Other Non-Anime Posts on December 14, 2012
Today marks the return of the 12 Days of Anime, the series of posts recounting and detailing the twelve greatest moments, influences or events of the year in regards to my anime/manga life. Over the next twelve days, ending on Christmas Day, I will have a special post documenting some exceptional and unforgettable thing that happened to me this year in hopes of sharing this cherished memory with you and adding a bit of personal touch that otherwise remains absent from this blog. Be sure to check out the other blogs participating in this tradition and enjoy the fun and celebrations.
In late 2011, my family was planning a vacation to Thailand, the first trip to Asia in my life. During the planning stages, I took the initiative to see if we or I could spend some time in Japan either heading in or going home. Since the Thailand portion of my trip was being paid for, I was informed that this excursion would need to be financed by myself but that I could leave a day early to fit it in. With these circumstances in place, the only chance at visiting Japan was a 22-hour period between arriving from Bangkok and departing to Seattle. It didn’t even take me a second to decide nor did I even look at the estimated bill; I leapt at the opportunity and this… this is my adventure:
