Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei Review: A “Perfect” World and the Final Choice

Image

After almost half a year since I finished watching the two seasons of the Higurashi anime, I’ve finally decided to watch the sequel OVA, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei.  As an OVA it didn’t have the same development and impact as the TV series did, but it does well enough for Higurashi fans to enjoy regardless.  For anyone who has not seen the Higurashi series, I must mention that Rei is by no means the part of the story to jump into and can only be appreciated (and probably understood) after finishing Higurashi no Naku Koro ni and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai.

Kuroko no Basket: Tip Off Review: Days of the Generation of Miracles

Image

Just finished Kuroko no Basket: Tip Off, which is a special episode for the Kuroko no Basket anime.  Speaking of which, I would highly recommend it to those who have yet to see it.  I’m personally not much of a sports fan, but Kuroko no Basket really caught me because of its fast-paced, over-the-top game style and the basketball games were always really exciting in this series.  The characters are also quite likeable as well and it’s entertaining to see how they compete with one another.

Carnival Phantasm Review: Type-Moon Ridiculousness Galore

Once again I’ve been distracted from my plans to get to visual novels, but I suppose it was worth it.  Happened to have free time and I decided to watch a couple episodes of Carnival Phantasm with my friend.  I decided to watch the rest, and as expected, lots of hilarity ensued and all sorts of over the top craziness took place throughout the anime.

Fate/stay night TV Reproduction Review: Fate/stay night in a Nutshell

Image

Happened to have some free time today (and no laptop when I needed it) so I decided to take the chance to watch Fate/stay night TV Reproduction, which is basically a 2-episode recap OVA of the Fate/stay night anime with an hour for each episode.  It was certainly enjoyable, but cramming 24 episodes’ worth of content into 2 hours of runtime means missing a lot.

Kanon (2006) Review: Winters Past and Uncovering Memories

Image

I just finished with Kanon (2006) so I guess this will be my first “real” post.  As I expected, Kanon was great and I definitely enjoyed it.  I’ve enjoyed the other Key works I’ve seen and I can definitely say that Kanon ranks up with those.  I enjoyed watching the 2002 adaptation, but the 2006 version was even better due to having more time for development and proper pacing.
