2012 Anime Harem!

December 26, 2012

As it’s something of a tradition at this point, I present my anime harem of 2012! A chance for me to show some appreciation for a small sample of my favorite anime characters of the year. In a lot of cases, characters can be more important in deciding my favorite series than the plot itself, while in others they have proven to be a show’s sole redeeming factor.

Shining Hearts: Ending of Disappointment Episode 12

August 6, 2012

I’ve really taken procrastination to a whole new level with this one, haven’t I? It’s been, what, six weeks since it ended? I struggled to motivate myself to rewatch this episode, partly because it was so boring, but mostly because I knew full well that anything I might write about it would be even worse than the rubbish I write about half decent episodes.

However, I’m a completionist. I can’t just forget that I was ever following this series. I have to write SOMETHING! I deliberately ended my 11th episode post with the promise of a conclusion, because I was determined to see it through. Otherwise, the fact that searching for Shining Hearts on my blog only brings up 11 posts would continue to annoy me. 😛 So a warning to all readers: this post is largely to satisfy my own OCD.

Time to show the blogosphere why I’m called AngryJellyfish. I’ll leave the explanations about the latter part of my username for another day…

Shining Hearts: Shiawase no Pan Episode 8

June 11, 2012

Le Coeur bakery finally has its oven back, and demand for bread is soaring! So much so that the delivery orders were too much for Neris to handle alone, so I, Rick, decided to help out by delivering half of them myself. Time seemed to fly by with the two of us working together, until only two deliveries remained. Neris headed off towards the tool shop, while I handled Flora’s Bar.

Shining Hearts: Shiawase no Pan Episode 7.wmv

May 29, 2012

In a bid to further shorten the word count of my Shining Hearts posts, I shall present my thoughts on episode seven in person, on video (please forgive the involuntary, nervous ‘tic’ sounds). Read the rest of this entry »
