There was a manga I could not recall the title of.


It started appearing where I read them around a month ago.


I was looking forward to seeing the next one... but I forgot the title.


Today, I saw it again.


It ended, apparently.


It was a short (only 6 chapters) and intensive story.


I don't want to forget its title again.


It's called Hello, hello and hello.


If it was longer, it would be in the league of Kimi No Na wa. Oh wait, that one was too too short.

Ishuzoku Reviewers - It is so unabashedly shameless that it ends up being rather fun. Definitely not everybody's cup of tea granted.

Dorohedoro - I'm quite enjoying this.

Kyokou Suiri - Feels like the latest attempt at a -monogatari type show. Probably would've enjoyed it a lot more 5 years ago. Too much talking and not enough getting to the point. Solves mysteries like Dragonball does fights.

SBR Marshmellow Boogaloo - It's alright I guess, not quite liking it as much as the first.

Chihayafuru - It is more Chihayafuru.

Heya Camp - I need season 2.

Was planning to watch Eizouken and 22/7 at some point but just never did.

I think I left a bunch of stuff unfinished from last year.

I was wondering when the last of it was going to be translated. It had lost a lot of steam after the anime ended.

It's probably not a classic YET but (I think) it has the signs of becoming one : Buzzy Noise. I hope it won't end too early.

Started watching Kobato - a guy on MAL (who had a signature that I liked) had Kobato listed as his favorite show and his favorite character, so I decided to check it out. It is sooo cute.

Started watching Number 24 - cute and fun yaoi show. Plus, rugby's pretty cool.

I checked out Buzzy Noise, and it struck me more as an angsty Millenial piece than anything, so after reading the 35 chapters out so far, I dropped it.

It only just started, but I like the art and story already - a story about art college girls that doesn't seem to be echhi or hellbent on looking for love, and art looks balanced (no explicit nudity) (yet… it's only been 3 chapters) (instead, the female protagonist has some issues) Hoshi Akari Graphics .

Bleach mangaka Kubo has a new one shot on VIZ called Burn the Witches, set in the Bleach universe. Not very impressed; the art is OK, but the writing is too tropey.

Finished Darwin's Game. It's an entertaining watch, if you don't take it seriously.

The lockdown is affecting a lot of what we can do,
But don't take City of Love Prison (City of imprisoned love) as a reference m-kay?

Speaking of lockdowns, I've been binging some stuff.

I've been marathoning 3-gatsu no Lion (March Comes In Like A Lion). It's a really good show. I don't think I'd really recommend marathoning it though. But it's really good.

Started watching a few new shows:

Lucky Star - cool chill cute girl show.

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu - looking to be a really cute romance show.

Runway de Waratte (Smile Down the Runway) - I've found that the reasons I like this show are: 1) I'm enamored with physical beauty, and a show about modeling and the fashion industry is going to have tons of it, and 2) I quite like the relationships in the show. As far as the story and the drama, there's a lot of anime cliche "I'll achieve my dream no matter what" and people yelling with excitement about it, lmao. But the show has maintained my interest. It was Paradise Kiss (which I think is a better show) that got me interested in watching another show about the fashion industry.

Oh, and that reminds me - I'm watching Chihayafuru (season 1), and I wish they could tone down the yelling, lmao. Sometimes it's overdone in my opinion. But still liking the show overall. Also, a random thing I'm impressed with -- in some scenes (but not all), when the reader is singing the poem on a single tone, I'm pretty sure that they deliberately arranged it so that the reader is singing on a pitch that matches with the background music. It has a really cool effect. It seems to be present in episode 11 (about 11-12 minutes in), and episode 4 (about 14-18 minutes in).

Oh, I recently finished watching Suzuka. I really liked it. Also, it was really cute to see Suzuka 2 decades older in the loosely related sequel, Fuuka. I wish they had adapted more of the manga (Suzuka) into an anime. I don't read manga (I'm not much of a reader...), I just read about the plot after watching the anime.

The manga also seems to be 'quite interesting' :) tried out of your recommendation, got hook'd...

The art style of Koi Wo Shiranai Bokutachi Wa seems strangely similar to Horimiya, as far as I can read, the writing somehow resembles it too. Yet the listed author isn't any of those of Horimiya. Hmm.
