I can’t catch a brake!
I’m not a winter person (when we ‘UK’ go for days without the sun, I start to get very ill). It also didn’t help that there was a virus going around.
Think I will stick to one anime per week(for now). I still want to study the English language in my free time.
^_^ *I have learned how to say ‘auxiliary’*
DB has me remembering them like grammars reindeer:
noun – verb
adjective – adverb
conjunction – interjection
article – preposition
O_O Do you know what is strange? I can only remember conjunction,interjection and syllable as:
t junction = conjunction
indigestion = interjection
silly bulls = syllable
XD ‘Silly bulls’ is up there with ‘oh you lazy dinosaur’ for strange things I remember from school (would, could and should).
I’m at episode 6 now, and everyone is extremely horny! There hormones erupted when the writers realised the plot is too thin to carry the show.
I can easily sum up the plot to a MANY harem anime within this one line: Boy need to pick one girl. Why can’t he just have sex with them all? You unlocked the ‘the orgy ending’.
The main plot about the magical library was interesting, until it turned into you generic ‘pick a girl’ story (I couldn’t give a magical toss about it anymore).
The show looks pretty and has clearly had a lot of effort put into it…but, you just can’t get away from that bland as hell formula.
^-o I’m hoping it picks up in the second half .
This is one of those anime you look at in the crunchyroll back catalogue and just say: “Not for me.”
Just look at the cover art for this.
The plot: Boy solves peoples problems in there sleep.
Let’s get this out of the way, this anime looks cheap. The sad truth about making an artsy anime is that you need the budget in order to bring life into the world. This is not to say its not possible to do it on the cheap, it’s just really unlikely.
Another problem I found with this anime was that it had a lot going on, yet at the same time it had nothing going on. The conflict the show presents doesn’t really become relevant until the second half (The first half is just him running from stuff).
THE CONFLICT IS DUMB!
According this anime a young lady got ‘sleeping beauty syndrome’ because a guy called her ‘boring’.
This young lady was tricked by 6 students into thinking a boy wanted to take her out on a date, which she said yes too. The 6 mocked her for it saying it was prank/game and that she was boring for not playing hard to get.
Y-Y The anime treats it as if those 6 students didn’t do anything wrong!
The moral of the story (according the animation) should be about how one shouldn’t mistreat others just because you were mistreated.
The witch played around with her victims until she broke/got bored of them.
How is telling the victim “You just need to relax more” meant to solve the core problem.
My final thoughts:
I have very little faith in this anime getting any better.
Plot: A boy wants to enter a magical library he was told about as a child.
I have 2 questions:
- Why dose he still believe the words of a man he met randomly in field as a child?
- Why can he see into the future?
It’s not even good future-vision! He predicts a girl would be hit by a derailed train…how? The train barely came off the rails and she was nowhere near the tracks. In order for her to be hit she would have to be standing 20cm away from the rails.
Plus you have to love how this guy knew the train was going to derail and only thought to save this one girl. Let’s have a moment of silence for all them poor souls that died on that platform.
XD I also couldn’t stop laughing when he tackles her. I understand the show is trying to make it look like he was attempting to brake her fall…however, you tend to try and make the character look like they are pivoting when they fall (If you don’t do that one action you end up changing the context).
I also have a very hard time believing how many students attend this school.
The student population is 50,000! Your school would have to be a mini city. O_O How can a school have that many students yet have so little walking around! What was the point in making that number so huge.
They have classes of 650 students.
Hire more staff!
I’m a little worried about the mental heath of the two main leads (they are both way too easily amazed).
The example of this is when they each get an email:
student “Must be from the school”
Other: “Wow, we all got the same message!”
. . . I understand they show is trying to make this a magical moment, but it just comes off dumb. You 4 students are in the room alone, you don’t know if anyone ells outside got the message.
If these students suddenly received a coupon ‘email’ for 50% off cake would they be like: “We must be the most magical people in the world.”
Was the first episode any good?
To be brutally honest, it was just bland.
The anime plays it way too safe and struggles to get basic cliches right.

Sorry it has been so long! O_0 I Fell up the stairs and ended up bruising my foot (50% of my foot turned purple). It doesn’t help that I like to sit on my feet when i’m typing.
T-T *spent a week off work with an ice pack on my foot.*
I’m trying type out my first review: 11 eyes
O_O I need to put a release date on that (it will encourage me to write it faster).
What I really need to back into is a posting rhythm.
T-o Guess I could go back to my old format of
First impression: Monday
Mid impression: Tuesday
End impression: Wednesday
First impression: Thursday

I really do want to bring life back into that blog!
