Hunter X Hunter 2011 – 148 (End)

「コレマデ×ト×コレカラ」 (Koremade x and x Korekara)
“Till Now x and x From Now”

In many ways, I think this is probably the toughest post I’ve ever had to write.

Ao Haru Ride – Walk with Me, Talk with Me


A gentle ride, like the breeze of a blue spring.

This show’s all talk. But not in a bad way.

Haikyuu!! – 25 (END)

「三日目」 (Mikka Me)
“Day 3″

While the epilogue finale of Haikyuu was mostly subdued like I was anticipating, there sure were a lot of frustrated outbursts to keep things interesting.

「この気持ちが恋じゃないなら、きっと世界に恋はない。」 (Kono Kimochi ga Koi Ja Nai Nara, Kitto Sekai ni Koi wa Nai.)
“If This Feeling Isn’t Love, Then There Is No Love At All”

Many people’s favorite show of the season comes to a close in such an ironic way.

Introduction – “If you’re ever looking for another writer…”

Samu 1

Just according to keikaku1.

Well, here I am. It appears that luck was on my side and the stars have aligned in my favour, resulting in me being given this fantastic opportunity to blog for RandomC. So let’s get started with the introductions: I’m Samu, from bonnie2 Scotland, and I’ll be the latest addition to the weird and wonderful cast of RandomC!

Like many others, I watched anime throughout my childhood without even realising what it was. But Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Digimon, and Beyblade aside – as well as far too much money spent on merchandise and trading cards over my childhood – my real first taste of anime came in 2011, when I started watching series by the season with help from the previews, schedules, and episode reviews available on RandomC.

For me, 2011 was a spectacular year for anime, maybe because it was my first proper experience with it, and maybe because of nostalgia, but it was what shifted me into high gear and had me hooked on watching anime from then on. I also love manga and read a few dozen as they are published, which I’ve done for a few years now, starting with my first ever ongoing anime/manga experience: Bleach. And because of that fateful first viewing, the chances of Bleach being anything other than my personal favourite anime/manga/series are essentially zero. We all had our gateway series, I suppose!

More after the jump.

Sword Art Online II – 12

「幻の銃弾」 (Maboroshi No Juudan)
“Phantom Bullet”

After weeks of enduring episodes full of dialogue and flashbacks to build up to this moment, I’ll be frank and say that I was a little disappointed that we still haven’t hit the climax. However, it looks like what we all want is right over the horizon!

Barakamon – 11

「東京にいます / よせおっ」 (Tokyo Ni Imasu / Yoseo)

I’m not sure if this week’s episode was supposed to emotional but I’ll tell you all about that after I find some tissues.

Well – never let it be said that Aldnoah.Zero didn’t end its first season with a bang…

Shirogane no Ishi Argevollen – 12

「ナンジョウ・レイカ」 (Nanjou Reika)
“Nanjou Reika”

While it was easy to tell what emotional response the writers were going for in this flashback episode, I unfortunately can’t say that it worked that well on me.

Tokyo Ghoul – 12 (END)

「喰種」 (グール)

As endings to manga adaptations go, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen anything quite like that one.

Glasslip – 12

「花火(再び)」 (Hanabi (Futatabi))
“Fireworks (Again)”

I had a witty one-liner about flashbacks all ready to go until the second half of the episode took that idea and tossed it straight into the trash.
