(Initial) Final Thoughts on Fruits Basket: Sadness, Bad Parents.

The series is done. After three or so years, this legendary series has come to a close. Something that fans have been wanting for a long time, and that people like myself have heard about, but went along for the ride for the first time. A series full of ups and downs, great animation, wonderful music, and sometimes that monkey zodiac. It’s time now though, to give you my final thoughts, at least at this stage. So after the cut let’s jump into it. This is Fruits Basket.

Noblesse: Where Good turns out to be Great!

Out of everything I’ve watched in 2020. This is the anime that was the most surprising one of them all. Not because it was some fantastic work, but because it was completely confident in just being ‘good enough.” And considering how the other Webtoons ended up… Either way, after the cut let’s take a dive into the anime series Noblesse!

Higurashi: When They Cry -Gou- First Cour: And Those Other Stories….

This blog is not new to Higurashi, a show that remains one of the more infamous shows of the fan-sub era. Full of horror, terror, and oozes of blood. It was one of the few shows to pull you in, and then be able to completely re-invent itself for its second half, and still remains good. I loved the series, and when I heard that it was being remade, I knew it would be anime I’m watching. How did it end up? Join me after the cut as I dive into Higurashi: When The Cry – Gou-

Let's have a little fun, shall we? — The new Higurashi series visual.

After the cut let’s get into the best, and worst of anime in 2020.

ReZero Season 2 First Cour: The (continued) suffering of Natsuki Subaru

It is not hyperbole to say that ReZero is not only one of the best anime of the last few years, but one of the best anime in general. It is one of the two shows that brought me back to anime in general, it’s themes of redemption, anger, jealously, entitlement, and self reflection struck a cord with viewers. Also there was Rem, who might have been one of the best waifu designs in the last 5 or so years.

But would a second season be able to carry that forward? Or would the show just end up being a one-hit wonder. We don’t have the answer yet, but after the first half, I think we can see where things are going so far. So after the cut, let’s take a dive into the first cour of the second season of ReZero: Starting Life in Another World

The insanity continues.
