Hey hey! How was your weekend? Last week I went to my first anime convention and it was exhausting and fun at the same time 😀 I wasn’t able to go to BEA but Anicult made up for it. I thought I had decent self-control until two days ago I spent over 200K on merely key chains ^^; (They are adorable though!) I came out of the con with 10K left on my wallet lol.
1. Noragami (S1)
I was first interested in this anime particularly because Hiroshi Kamiya voiced the main character, Yato — the minor god who wishes to be rich and build his own shrine as well as followers. Kamiya really made Yato’s character come to life with his laid-back and playful personality, which is completely different from the other anime characters I know him from such as the calm and collected Akashi and Levi. Hihihi I found the fact that Yato’s partner, Yukine, is also voiced by fellow Shingeki seiyuu Yuki Kaji (Eren) very amusing :3
Story-wise, Noragami has a pretty good plot that managed to keep me interested and some humors thrown here and there. However, I did feel that there was something missing in this anime. Like, it was really enjoyable but not feels-inducing or anything.
2. Psycho Pass (S1)
This anime caused me to frown A LOT in confusion because it’s using a quite a lot of difficult words but thought-provoking in general. In the future, Japan relies on Sibil System on everything starting from deciding which job suits people the best to something as serious as criminals. Those who have Crime Coefficient higher than certain numbers are considered criminals, but the thing is an increase in Crime Coefficient can be caused by anything including stress, being the victim of a crime or if you’re a detective then doing investigation can lead to higher Crime Coefficient since you’re trying to understand a criminal’s mind.
I really liked the main character — Akane is able to stand up for herself and make her own decisions and gradually she transforms from this naive newbie into a reliable inspector. I also appreciated that they gave some backstories to most of the main characters though I wish they had revealed more about Kagari’s past 🙁
3. Haikyuu! (S1 ongoing: 10/25 episodes seen)
Seriously, sports anime is huge these days. Can’t believe that I ended up liking another one xD The first few episodes were enjoyable enough because the main character (Hinata) is so hilarious and energetic. But things start to get even better and I have only been fully invested after the whole deal with Suga, Nishinoya and Asahi in recent episodes. What a heart-warming scene <3
I can’t help but to compare Haikyuu! to Kuroko no Basuke due to some similarities but I liked the positive change in Kageyama which is only after a few episodes and oh my god Tsukki. Tsukishima is the typical assholes or jerks — whatever you call it — but I love him because him teasing Kageyama always results in hilarious banters :3 Overall, I personally think Haikyuu! is funnier than Kurobasu but when it comes tension? Of course, Kurobasu still takes the cake. I’m looking forward to future development of this anime 😀
