I am not one for sports anime as a general rule. My primary genre is adventure and plot-driven anime so this is quite the departure, but after seeing some very compelling content from a facebook friend including some actual, sensitive LGBT representation rather than it being used as a horrific comedic stereotype, I knew I … Continue reading Stars Align is the Both the Best Anime I Have Seen in a While, but also the Next Travesty Waiting to Happen
This is an anime who's somewhat ridiculous premise and subversion of the, honestly rather tired, Isekai genre immediately caught my attention when I saw the trailer video pop up on my facebook newsfeed, where I seem to find a lot of anime for the first time. Imagine the scene, you get to travel the videogame … Continue reading Do I Love Your Mom and her Two-Hit Multitarget Attacks?
The next instalment of my Japanese trip reviews is finally here after I didn't have access to my photos since my laptop was being repaired! We had the Saturday as free time all day in Kobe during our programme because, naturally, there weren't any classes that day. I had been thinking of going to Kyoto, … Continue reading Himeji Castle
One thing I enjoyed about staying in a hotel rather than a homestay when I was in my school placement in Japan was the flexibility. We were able to just spontaneously make plans when school was over. And so on the Thursday of our trip, when two of the group leaders and their host sisters … Continue reading Kobe Travel Guide: Takatori Mountain
I had a great time in Japan the last time I was there, and was placed in Kobe for my school placement. I had previously been there for a night or two, so it was nice to be able to spend a lot more time there and do more after class. There’s a lot of … Continue reading Kobe Travel Guide: Nunobiki Herb Gardens and Ropeway
I sometimes neglect the anime side of my blog which, given the amount of viewers who come here from a post on another anime blog, really isn't a good idea. Plus anime is fun to talk about and not a lot of my friends who I see regularly will watch it regularly anymore, fewer still … Continue reading Why “The Rising of the Shield Hero” is the Most Relatable Anime I Have Watched
I have just come back from a trip to Japan! This time it was for a programme run for students from universities, enabling them to go into high schools in Japan and deliver a programme which develops their confidence, communication, and helps them to get the skills and thinking that they need to unlock their … Continue reading My Japanese School Placement
While my parents seem very good at putting up with a lot of my mental immaturity and complete aversion to adulthood (I woke up at 12:45pm today, own hundreds of plushies, do not dress or act my age in any way at all really...), one thing they do ask about is money. I've always been … Continue reading Join Me in the 52 Week Saving Challenge!
The present I was most excited to get for Christmas was Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu! Ever since I saw the trailers, I was eagerly anticipating its release and knew that I would need to get a copy! Fast forward to MCM October and I got to play the game, using one of the pokeball controllers, … Continue reading A Charming, if Short, Nostalgia Trip: Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu
Merry Christmas! I've been having a nice few days visiting family and playing games, and chatting on my group chat of best uni friends (some of whom I'll get to see again in just five days!) Christmas is an opportunity for fun and immaturity in my house, so I went to bed just after midnight … Continue reading Merry Christmas!
