March Theme Reveal: Anime

Goodmorning, goodafternoon , goodevening, or maybe even goodnight! No idea when you are reading this post ofcourse, but I always try to be polite. So, we are already at the halfway point of February, and that means it is time to reveal the theme for next month. A few of you already knew about this (because really I am terrible at keeping secrets), but for those of you that didn’t yet know or for some reason missed the title of this post: it’s anime! I’m very excited for this month, for not only is it a theme that is very close to my heart, it’s also because if all goes well I have some collab posts lined up that I am really looking forward to. Just like lastΒ monthΒ I am going to ask you for some help again. For this month I am going to be reviewing two animes that will be selected by you the readers. And yes…..there are again a couple of rules for this. Ugh….I know I hate them too. But let’s get them over with, shall we?

The Rules

Ughhhh…rules? Again? This is getting so annoying!

Well, don’t worry I’m not going to make them very tough again, so here goes:

  • The anime must either be on Crunchyroll or Netflix (please bear in mind that I live in Holland, so not every show might be available to me. If it isn’t I ofcourse will let you know, so you are able to choose another one)
  • The anime must have a maximum length of 12-13 episodes (It can be a first season, if it has that number of episodes)
  • Any genre of anime is allowed, except full on comedy series (sorry, I just don’t like that genre and would not even know how to write a review for that)
  • Leave your choice for the two animes in the comments section
  • You can leave a comment on this post up until the 25th of February
  • The two animes that will be selected will be revealed on the 1st of March and just like last month I am going to use a random number generator to determine who has won
  • The two bloggers that have won will get an honorable mention on my blog

That’s it! Pretty simple huh? As always I want to thank you for your help, and I am really looking forward to seeing what you are going to come up with. Rest assured for the people that are not into anime, there will still be other content as well such as movie reviews and hopefully another Korean drama series. See you on the next post!

Okay, let’s get out of here!

      1. I haven’t seen that one yet…but I’m definitely going to check it out. Another one you might enjoy is Knights of Sidonia. The first season of that is pretty good. The second season was a bit of a letdown, but still enjoyable enough

    1. Well…Ancient Magus Bride is still an ongoing series. But I can do a review for the first 12 episodes if this gets chosen if that is okay with you😊 As for Vision of Escaflowne it’s not available for me…but I do have it on dvd. Don’t exactly know how many episodes it has but will check that out. Thanks for the recommendations 😊

      1. If you decide to take on Magus, I’d definitely be interested in your take on the first half. As far as EscaFlowne, sad to hear it’s not available in your area! Might still be interesting to do the DVDs since a new generation will soon be introduced to it ^_^

      2. Well…I will let the computer do the deciding (as this sort of a competition kind of thing lol😊), but if it does get picked I will do my review for the first half.
        As for Escaflowne, I have acces to it..so I won’t mind watching it on dvd 😊😊

      3. Be forewarned, it’s not 2-13s. The series just keeps going. Episode 12 begins a new arc, which lasts about 3-4 episodes.
        More than most, the arcs in Escaflowne tend to flow into each other. Only a handful of episodes end on what feels like a stable stopping point.
        Don’t get me wrong, I love it. But most episodes just pull you right into the next one.

      4. Well, that’s true. The thing is a long time ago I made a start with Escaflowne. And I am talking about at least 10 years ago here. But never finished it, so I already know it’s pretty awesome. If this gets selected, I will probably split the review in two part. But will have to wait and see if of course it gets selected in the first place.😊😊

      1. Oh, what a bummer! Silver Spoon is great, and quite unlike anything else you’ll watch, so if you get the opportunity to track it down somehow it’s well worth a watch. (Not sure if it’s on Netflix, I haven’t checked.)

        Something else, huh… hmm… I’ll throw Sound! Euphonium into the ring, then, if no-one else has! I still need to watch the second season of that sometime…

      2. I will definitely try to remember the name of Silver Spoon. In fact…I have noted it on my to watch list now.
        And yes, Sound Euphonium is available ! So…noted it down. Thanks for the suggestions and let’s see if this one is going to make the cut. Thanks for these recommendations 😊

  1. I’d like to say Ancient Magus Bride also, but It’s episode count is in the 20s, and it’s still running. Although it does have a mid season break after 12 episodes, so you could just talk about the first 12 as they wrap up pretty nicely. That’s on Crunchyroll.

    My other pick would be Devilman Crybaby, not something I liked especially, but it’s vastly different and has a lot to talk about. That’s on Netflix.

    1. Thanks for these 😊 I can definitely do a review for the first 12 episodes, so that is no problem. If it gets selected I will do that. And Devilman Crybaby is still on my to watch list too..so that’s awesome. Thank you for participating 😊

  2. Cyborg 009 on Netflix. Though…I only know the older version, this one is a bit more modern looking. Or Cowboy Bebop….cause old school.

    On crunchyroll I would go for Fushigi Yugi or Gundam Wing… problem these are way over 12 episodes (the ones on netflix probably too).

    So only watch these (the ones on crunchyroll) when you want to start a good old anime. I loved looovveedd those two so much! Gundam wing was my favourite (aside from sailor moon…❀)

    So just consider my ideas as tips. Not part of a competition suggestion 😜

    1. Thanks! Cyborg 009 will be entered…the other two I will keep as things I need to watch at some point or other as the are both either over a 100 or over 50 episodes. As much as I would love to do that…I just would not know where to find the time lol.
      Cowboy Bebop als has nearly 24 episodes…but I will keep it as a backup 😊 Thanks!!

  3. oh man… When people ask for recommendations I can feel my brain freezing. It is like there are so many good things to watch that they all flood to the front and I can’t remember anything. Wish you could see Made in the Abyss Amazon has the monopoly on that one. I would say Bungo Stray dogs. It has super unique magic and the characters are amazing. The art is beautiful and it is just awesome. It has two seasons and a short little mini season at the start of season 2. The op are also amazing as well. This anime will not disappoint.

      1. You’re welcome. I was also surprised by the numerous Cyborg 009 mentions as well. Call of Justice is based on a very old-school anime, but they explain everything in the first episode, so it works for new and older viewers with the styorylines. It’s only 12 episodes long, by the way.

  6. Well, I was going to go with Sword Art Online since I love that show and don’t recall seeing a review for it, but it has too many episodes 😦 And I only really know a handful of other anime, so I guess I’ll just let someone else win this one, hehe

      3. What?! That I did not know! I definitely thought it would be awesome to see a live action version of this story. A bit nervous though since this is such a high level fantasy concept. They really need to spend the big bucks to make it awesome and not cheesy.

      3. What the actual…? How can it not be licensed in Holland? Like for real. That’s just stupid. Well, how about Sekai ichi Hatsukoi then. *she doesn’t give up on the boys love department* No, that is not my final choice, I am just curious if you have access to it. I am gonna think some more about my second choice.

        And yes there is such a thing and it is ridiculous because how many series do they actually count as mature? Like the boys love ones. πŸ™„ I actually turned off the filter and SL did show anyway but you could only see the episodes when you search for it (you did write it in two words? If you didn’t you won’t get a hit πŸ™„ CRs search engine sucks…or possibly hates me) and when you clicked on them a huge warning came about how it might have content that can be sensitive to younger viewers. Then I searched for Citrus and there I came directly to the series front page without a warning or anything. HOW!!! is there any difference between these two series? Except, I mean, the rape elements in Citrus. (no I haven’t seen Citrus but I have read enough about it to realise the huge trigger in it to not see it. Me and rape is not a good combination when it comes to women being sexually assulted) So, why are these two series treated differently? *sorry not gonna rant about it more than this*

      4. I think what happened is that my profile had to be updated after the changes I made to it. So….guess what? Super lovers is there now. Well…and then it has now been added to the list.

        Haha, no worries..you may rant all you want, which is cool. I like rants.
        I have heard some pretty bad things about Citrus too. It’s not really as series that I would usually pick up and watch. And as it has a trigger warning for you I’m going to go full Asta on you by saying: STAY AWAY FROM IT!!!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        But yeah sometimes I don’t really understand how some series /movies seem to get a warning..and others don’t. Probably much bigger science at work here than we can comprehend πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

        Well, people are generally more outraged by boys kissing boys than by girls kissing girls for some reason. I am not sure why but it is the same in real porn. Maybe because it’s straight men who like lesbian porn (and yuri) while it’s gay guys who like gay porn exclusively and women (and some gay men) who like boys love? It is after all, unfortunately, still men who rule this world. And when it comes to sexual abuse, people seem to think that it is worse if it is a man who commits a rape than when it is a woman. News flash, it isn’t.

        Hmm wel I am a straight guy, but I don’t have a problem with seeing two men kissing. I am not that narrowminded and I have quite a few friends that are gay as well.
        Unfortunately we still live in a society that seems to think otherwise..which I think is really shameful and obviously very stupid.
        True enough. I don’t see how rape that is caused by a woman could be any different or less hurtful than when it is caused by a man. Weird that people also seem to think otherwise for this as well 😒😒

        Women are the weaker sex so of course isn’t womens sex crimes as severe. I guess that’s how people see it. Just as women can’t possibly be pedophiles. πŸ™„ The most stupid thing in the world really.

  10. Hmm well there are just so many shows I know you haven’t watched yet XD I’d really enjoy reading any review of yours and I love the idea! I guess I should pick two shows then:

    1. Ga-Rei: Zero – Not a lot of folks have talked about this one. It’s a prequel for a manga series so it has one of those “read the manga” endings BUT it is a self-contained story in regards to the major story beats. The first episode is of particular note but I don’t want to spoil anything for ya πŸ˜‰ There are 12 episodes total. It is a darker series, which I guess shouldn’t be too surprising given who’s recommending it XD

    2. For my second recommendation I’ll go for something a bit more upbeat. How about Rollingβ˜†Girls? It’s really different and visually interesting. I wouldn’t say it has the strongest story but the characters are fun. I think you’d have a good time with it. There are 12 episodes for this.

    I of course could recommend you stuff all day but I think that this would be a good balance of stuff to watch and write about. Either way, lookin’ forward to it πŸ™‚

        Sunday Without God/Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi – 12 episodes. It’s kind of all over the place in quality but poses some interesting questions. It takes place in a world where God just left and now nobody can die. Well, they can but only if they are killed by specific people. It leaves a lot unanswered in the end but I did enjoy it. Has been a long time since I watched though so don’t have many specifics to add.

    1. Well…I have already seen Castlevania, a review for that is lurking somewhere on my blog for it lol.
      And I can’t get acces to My Hero Academia through official means but someone sent me a link so I might be able to see it in that way.
      Do you have a second choice for Castlevania? (Thanks for these by the way. Awesome!)
      As for your question. I don’t mind comedy elements in a series. But if it’s a series that is full on comedy and nothing else, that’s where I am not interested in it 😊😊😊

      1. Eeeny, meeny, miny, moe… this requires a randomizer… oompa, loompa, doopity-do… (about five minutes of random-choices and screening later)… One Punch Man and The Devil is a Part-Timer are both of the appropriate length and on Netflix. πŸ˜‰

      2. Hahaha…really had to laugh about this one..πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Cool…thanks for these choices…I’m going to be doing the random thing as well when I will let the computer make the decision for this…but I’m not going to be saying Oompa Loompa Doopity-do though πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Thanks 😊😊

  13. 1.)Angel Beats; you referenced a gif of it, the soundtrack, the character development and twists in the plot make this an incredible anime that’s short-lived and leaves you begging for more.

    2.) Another; The art style is unique and eerie, the story grabs you from the very start, holy fuck is it brutal. I promise you’ll never look at umbrellas again. This is Final Destination meets anime.

    1. Thanks so much for these recommendations. Starting with number 2…that one really is one of my favorite all time animes. You really aren’t kidding about those umbrellas lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Unfortunately though..I have already watched it and written a review for it.
      And the first show I don’t have access to here in Holland….which kind of sucks as it sounds seriously cool as well.
      Do you perhaps have any other recommendations? (Thanks in advance 😊😊)

      1. Awee i’m sorry D:
        AND I do! I’ve watched over 500 series hopefully these are available or you haven’t seen yet.
        If you enjoyed Another you may like Blood-C, it has a similar style, its a short story with an interesting story and right amount of action, but it’s not for a weak stomach.

        Charlotte is also a short series that has an interesting story but the ending is a tad bit lack luster but the overall experience was enjoyable.

        Just in case adding a third reference; K-On! it’s a slice of life. I wasn’t a huge fan of that genre but this anime blew me away with the soundtrack and the cuteness of all the characters the humor was perfectly spread between each episode; I was in a dark funk at the time and the anime always seemed to lift me out of my crappy mood no matter how bad my days were.

        Hope these help, IF NOT I’ve got plenty more suggestions >:3

        I’m going to have to disappoint again though….sorry πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ I have reviewed Blood C already (and I agree, it was a lot of fun) As for the other two..they again are not available for me in Holland…ugh…sometimes I really hate living in Holland😒😒😒
        But wow over 500 series that you watched. That is truly impressive πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

        Haha..well I wish I could do that but I have a pretty demanding day job..so that’s pretty much a no for me lol.I do try to watch as much as I can though. Thanks again, and in two weeks we will see which series are going to be reviewed in March 😊😊

      5. No problem glad to help. And sweet I look forward to it.
        And super relatable about the job, during june-november it’s mandatory 60 hrs a week so I don’t get much time but the rest of the year is all game on lol.
        Enjoy the series! Whichever ones you end up watching.

  14. Ooooh man I’m looking forward to this 😁 I’ll pick Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works (if that is on Netflix for you too). Annnnnd… I think you could do a really interesting review of Recovery of an MMO Junkie, based on your comment on our piece about it, as long as you wanted to go there.

    1. Haha..I’m also looking forward to this, especially which titles are going to get picked.
      Unfortunately Fate/stay night is not available for me. Fate/Apocrypha is. I can do a review for that if you want? (That is if it gets picked of course)
      As for recovery of an MMO junkie, that one is on cruncryroll, so let’s see if it gets selected in two weeks. Thanks for participating. Awesome 😊😊

  15. While there are many anime I like, there are really only two that, to the best of my knowledge, are available via Crunchyroll, fall under 13 episodes, and I would recommend; Baccano and Serial Experiments Lain. They’re both a bit dense, but Baccano is very light hearted, while Serial Experiments Lain is much more serious.
    I’d definitely be interested to see what you make of either one.

    1. Thanks…Serial Experiments Lain is a show that has been on my own to watch list for ages. But wouldn’t you know it…it’s not available in Holland..Ugh…figures right?
      Baccano is though. So that one goes to the list.
      Do you perhaps have a second choice?
      Thanks for participating by the way 😊😊

      1. I doubt you have the original Kino’s Journey (not beautiful world), or I’d recommend that. I believe you’ve already done Puella.
        I’m a little torn between a few titles. Perhaps you can choose between them, depending on your preference. You will be the one watching after all.
        If you’re in the market for an action bounty hunter/mercenary narrative, I’d say Black Lagoon.
        If you want something mellow and thoughtful, Haibane Renmei.
        If you prefer something darker, but still thoughtful, Death Parade.

  16. Oh Glob, my brain has just frozen up and I can’t remember what anime is on netflix (even though netflix is my main source of entertainment hehe). 😦

    The only anime, I can think of is Elfen Lied (Elves song). From what I remember, it was really good, but was rather unusual/creepy and an emotional watch. Not sure, what you’d make of it though. (It’s quite gory and has quite a bit of nudity in it. Not sure, if you’d find it distasteful). But sure, it would be interesting to see your opinion on this anime πŸ˜€

    1. Hahaha…that is what happens to me as well at times total brainfreeze when it comes to things like this lolπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      Well..unfortunately Elfen Lied is not on Netflix or on Crunchyroll for me. So…can’t watch it here.
      No worries though…if you think of something else, let me know. There are still nine days to go, so plenty of time 😊😊

      2. Sure…I didn’t specify only anime series. Movies are good as well. Have not seen this one yet. So….adding it to the list. Who knows? Maybe it will get picked 😊😊
        Two more weeks and we will find out. Thanks for participating πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

    1. Really no worries Kim. Thanks so much for participating. As for Castlevania, I already saw that one, and did a review for it last year. If you liked it, you might be interested to know that it will get a second season this year, with more episodes 😊😊
      As for Full Metal Alchemist…great choice. It’s one of those animes that I have been wanting to see for a very long time now. So very cool
      If you have another choice instead of Castlevania let me know😊
      Thanks again!

      1. Ahm, no I’m not enjoying… Lol…Not that much really, It’s little slow.. One of our common friends also agreed with me when I said its a little slow though the plot is interesting because it features a girl looking for her head, πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ That’s not a spoiler… hahaha..

        Haha…no worries..this is probably a series I’m not going to watch anyway, so even it was a spoiler it would have been alright lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      3. hahaha… But maybe the introduction is just long..Though I’m already half the season, but there’s already season 2, i guess. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ SO maybe that means it’s actually good… Hopefully… Ill let you know what I think about it once Im done..
