I will not spoil the ending of the Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei manga. If you are interested in spoilers, you can check out THIS thread or the following hilarious threads from when the final chapter was released: 1,2,3. Even better, try finding the final chapters online (I suggest starting from chapter 280 (not every chapter is translated anyway)).
I have always found learning new things a lot of fun, especially if it is stuff I have wanted to learn for a long time. Japanese was one such thing I had longed for and this fall I finally got the chance to start studying it. Continue reading →
It is fairly unusual for me to notice the music in anime unless it really stands out. This is not a bad thing in itself, because not noticing it can be a sign of it blending in very well with the anime itself. Sometimes the music can also stand out so much it actually becomes distracting (which is my biggest concern with the Hunter x Hunter (2011) remake).
But every now and then we have anime with such gorgeous music that I directly look up the soundtrack. It is the kind of music that stands out without detracting from the experience. The music may not always be put to good use by the studio at times, sadly, but it still remains kickass in its own way.

And boy did I fall in love with it quickly. I ended up breezing through all thirteen episodes in only three days, which is a rare feat for me.
If you have read the Sword Art Online posts you may have noticed there being someone called Myst writing together with me. He is the writer of the anime blog Through the Frozen Glass and a great guy you should totally follow. I mean, just the thing that he lowers himself to blog Sword Art Online together with me says something about how nice he is! Continue reading →
Last year we had Kimi to Boku, something as unusual as a slice-of-life series about boys, and not girls, doing absolutely nothing except living their lives (or, cute boys doing cute things). With no real expectations, especially since it was done by the hit-or-miss studio J.C. Staff, it completely caught me off-guard and blew me away. Continue reading →
