[OP]: Saturday Night Question | Sunday Salutations!

Good afternoon lovelies! I hope you all are having a fantastic weekend. Again, I’m late with today’s post as I was tied up with something this morning. Stay tuned for an announcement! A few of us have been working on something special as of late *wink wink*

I can’t believe it’s December already! Can you believe it! 2018 will be upon us on no time. That means, my Best of 2017 post is just around the corner! If you haven’t seen it, you should check out my A Year in Anime: 2016 Awards post to get a feel for what categories I’ll be filling up. Which also means, I have a bunch of anime to finish up in the next month.

But I digress, let’s get to this week’s OP!

Title: “Saturday Night Question” | Artist: Megumi Nakajima|
Anime:
 Recovery of an MMO Junkie

I didn’t get to watch a lot of anime this week, but I did try to catch up on Recovery of an MMO Junkie. I like this particular anime because it’s a different kind of Isekai story, people have been comparing it to SAO but you know what, it’s not even the same. I don’t know why people are so intent on comparing the two.

Are you guys watching this anime? What are your thoughts on it so far? If not, tell me a little bit about your weekend! Looking forward to what you guys have to say 🙂

[KnB Challenge] Day 29 | Favorite Quote

ONE MORE DAY left! AHH!!

Today’s prompt for the [KnB Challenge] is my favorite quote from the series. Now, if you were following me around this time last year when I did the 30 Day Anime Challenge then this quote will probably look familiar. Yes, I’m bringing it back (so I can use the same image I created. ROFL, I’m kinda lazy)

kagami-quote

Kagami says it best, There is no such thing as useless effort. This is the mantra I’m using to get me through my exams. I just got to keep putting in the work and the effort, and I’ll reach my goals in no time. Making an effort is better than no effort, so yeah, it’s not useless to better yourself no matter how hopeless things might appear to be!


What was your guys’ favorite quote from a character? Let me know your thoughts! 😀

ahh!! Tomorrow’s the final day! D:

[KnB Challenge] Day 28 | Saddest Moment

Two Days Left of the [KnB Challenge]!!

Since yesterday we looked at the funniest moment of KnB, today we look at the saddest.

It wasn’t until my OWLS post about Aomine that really made me appreciate who he was, and realize the pain that he really endured. I had to re-watch a lot of these episodes for the post to get an idea. And this scene really broke my heart:

 

Aomine is utterly frustrated by the lack of competition with his talent blooming at a rapid rate. He walks out on team practices, and a mentor/coach should have found him and forced him to get back to practice and work with his teammates, after all, basketball is a team sport. But instead of whipping him into shape, the coach cowardly tells Aomine that he can just show up to games as long as he wins. Aomine is completely stripped of any hope he had been clinging onto to the sport that he loved so dearly. This is the moment the switch in Aomine is flipped as he embraces being a basketball god that no one can touch, even his friendship with Kuroko starts to break down at this point.

Ugh, so heartbreaking to see Aomine’s breakdown in this scene under the bridge in the rain.


What would you say was the saddest moment of KnB? Let me know in the comments below! 🙂

The Abundant Bishies of Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis

Happy Monday! As per usual, I’m here to chase your Monday Blues away with your weekly dose of Man Crush Monday!

As I mentioned in yesterday’s OP/ED I’ve been into the Shingeki no Bahamut (Rage of Bahamut). Shingeki no Bahamut is a fantasy adventure anime that tells a tale of the relationships  between angels, humans and demons. (I don’t want to say too much because I’m planning a review). I really liked the aesthetics of this show, and that had nothing to do with the men of the series. In fact I was taken aback by the amount of bishies that are in this anime.

Let me just say upfront that, this was truly intentional design choice. Also, I want to thank Leth for the very animated discussion on bishounen’s earlier this morning when I was contemplating about my MCM, and also to Mark who listened to me go on and on about the bishies of Genesis which allowed me to realize that these guys should be my feature on this week’s MCM.

[KnB Challenge] Day 27 | Funniest Moment

Guys, there’s only 3 DAYS LEFT to my [KnB Challenge]!

Kuroko no Basket is filled with a lot of comedic moments. The funniest are clearly from the NG-Shuu shorts, but I don’t think I can claim any of those for this. So, aside from my “Japanese Lunch Time Rush” clip that I’ve been showing a few times already, I’d have to go with…

The Scene when Murasakibara meets Kagami and plucks his eyebrows is hilarious! But the best part comes a bit later when Kagami decides to provoke Murasakibara like a 5-year old and well, Kagami gets him hook line and sinker, and then continues to taunt him at the beginning of the game. LOL.


What’s your favorite funny moment of the series? Let me know in the comments below! 😀

[OP]: Existence | Sunday Salutations

This week’s OP comes a bit late; it’s been a bit of a busy weekend. Also, with me diving into Rise of the Tomb Raider over the weekend didn’t help. I fell behind a day on the KnB Challenge and honestly didn’t have a good enough excuse (Mel would agree with that) I was just plain lazy, or overeager to play.

If you’re on twitter you can follow me as @heyitszel and the hashtag playthrough I created #ZelRaidsTombs.  Also, the past week, I started and finished the first season of Rage of Bahamut: Genesis. If you saw last week’s OP/ED post, I mentioned that I had stumbled upon the ED for Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul. I started Virgin Soul to get a feel for the show, and really enjoyed the first episode. But, for continuity sake I wanted to watch Genesis first. I contemplated watching them simultaneously but that would be weird and probably confuse me. I’ll try to write up a review of it sometime soon!

Anyways, you could probably guess where this OP is headed.
