I heard about this anime from Carla of Pop Culture Literary during the July OWLS Tour with the topic “mirrors.” She wrote an excellent post on the anime, and you should definitely read it. It’s one of my favorite OWLS posts ever. You can read it here.
I. Love. This. Show. I heard about it for the first time back in July during OWLS tour on “Mirrors,” or self-image. Arria discussed The Ancient Magus’ Bride manga, and how the two main characters see themselves and each other. From the minute I read the post, I was excited to learn that there would be an anime about it!
You should check her post out too, here!
So, I feel kinda bad I didn’t end up posting yesterday for this, but I was not feeling up to writing. I had stuff I was doing and then I played a game with a friend, and then I had to finish up my other post, so but the time I was going to sit down and do it, I was just too tired to do it.
I’m making up for it by answering both day 16 and 17’s prompts today.
I was very close to forgetting to do this, but luckily it dawned on me that I still needed to do this today. I’m pushing to actually make it every day! And I’ve made it a third of the way through, so it’s looking good for me.
I’m not entirely sure where to start on this one. I guess I’ll begin with how I came to hear of this show. A few different things convinced me to check it out. I have a few mangas that advertised it, so there was that. Then I saw some fanart I’d mistaken for Noragami fanart floating around, so I was a bit curious. Then I heard some people get annoyed with the popularity of Yuri on Ice competing with this for a reason I will soon explain.
I had the pleasure of seeing the A Silent Voice movie at a theater near my house on October 23rd. Now, I’ve read the manga twice, and I’ve written two posts based around the manga. Is it surprising you there’s a third post now?
The question here is whether the movie or manga experience is better. So, here’s my opinion on that. If you don’t know anything about A Silent Voice, I’d suggest you read my first post on it, where I describe the premise of the story.
For any of you unaware, RWBY is not technically an anime, but is often placed in that category. It’s a web series by the animation studio Rooster Teeth and has been popular for a few years. I’ve been told countless times to watch this show, and about two months ago, I started it.
I’ve never done a review on a romance anime, but here we are now.
This show’s title translates into “As the moon, so beautiful” which I didn’t quite understand at first. I get it now, and it reminds me of a certain scene from my favorite manga of all time. So this show won me over just with the title.
I thought this would be a fun post, something I haven’t really thought much about. And let me tell you, narrowing it down to just ten is very difficult. I had thirteen I wanted to include, but that’s a strange number to have for a list, so I had to eliminate three. Like most of my lists, this is not in any particular order, just the one I wrote them down in. I hate playing favorites, and many things I say are my favorite are really just one of many.
