Happiness Charge Precure Final Impressions

Happiness Charge Precure

This will be quick and messy because frankly I just didn’t enjoy Happiness Charge that much. I had to force myself to watch the last few episodes after being behind on them for weeks and weeks and months.

To be fair, in those last few episodes the show did have some surprising grace and maturity that I hadn’t expected. If only the rest of the series had been as good.

Akatsuki no Yona Second OP and ED

Akatsuki no Yona

Despite everything good airing this season, Akatsuki no Yona continues to be my favourite show. It’s a bit disheartening to realize they’re not going to get anywhere close to facing Su-won but apparently the manga isn’t even close to that point, from what I’ve heard.

Actually, I had never really looked at the studio before now. Being done by Pierrot does explain why it’s 2 cour, kind of. They seem a lot more focused on providing a quality show rather than a preview for the manga or light novel (as well as having done plenty of other shows directed at women that ended up with multiple seasons). Maybe Soredemo will even get a second season when it has more chapters then. Still, I’d much, much, much rather have more Yona than another season of Soredemo even though the desert arc is kind of interesting.

(That arc in Soredemo is interesting but if I recall correctly, ends up with more trite Bad Shoujo gimmicks like ‘oh she is so cool and strong and shit we love the rain I must have her so go to hell shota king’)

Alright, wildly off topic. I’m actually going to talk about what I had planned to originally. The new OP and ED.

The Mystery of Oninagi (and Final Impressions?)

Oninagi Volume 4

I’m doing a post about Oninagi after all these years not because Oninagi is particularly good or anything. No, it’s painfully average despite it’s cool artstyle. No, it’s because Oninagi is a series that Yen Press had shrouded in mystery. It’s just that I thought that I would never own volume four and even when that finally happened, it wasn’t even normal.

It was a mystery that puzzled me for years. This was around the time of Del Ray going under so I have many unfinished series in my collection now but it was always this one that was most puzzling. Why did Yen Press suddenly stop publishing it? On the last volume, at that.

Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best THE FINAL

Speed Anime Trance Best The Final

This is it folks. The final one. I’ve bemoaned having to do this series for a long time but really I could have stopped at any time. However, honestly it brings in the most people and I’ve enjoyed talking to everyone over the years about the albums as they come out. People letting me know the album is out, anticipating my post and then chatting about what songs we liked best. I liked all those things so I did these posts even as I grew more and more disenchanted with the series.

So I’m not that sad it’s over. And I know I keep saying this but I do have another really big Exit Trance post that has been a draft for probably at least a year now. Maybe that’ll come out eventually.

LINE Sticker Selection #03

  

  

A bit of an unusual selection here. Either the art style strikes me as unique or it’s different from the kind of stickers I normally look for and seemed weird to include in the regular list.

Fang’s Favourites of 2014 (Part Two)

Part two, the part that doesn’t make much sense. This post serves as a pretty great reminder about just how bad my taste is, in case you have forgotten some how.

Fang’s Favourites of 2014 (Part One)

 

Despite there being so few OSTs that grabbed my attention this year, just the music portion of this list ended up being pretty big. So part one is music and part two is everything else!
