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. So, making the list this year are:

Shining Hearts: Bread of Angriness Episode 10

June 27, 2012

Right, that does it. I’ve put up with this series’ nonsense for long enough. I’m going to be mean about everything and everyone in this episode, whether it’s warranted or not. 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.

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 »

Shining Arts: Shiawase no Paint Episode 6

May 24, 2012

Once more, I make myself available to work for nothing for a set time period, and it doesn’t go according to plan – I’m no longer volunteering at Deudraeth Cyf, after the company found themselves too busy working on various projects all over the county to focus on giving me something to do. Ah well, at least I didn’t get fired this time…

So now that I have all the free time in the world again, I present my slightly overdue post for episode 6 of Shining Hearts… in the form of edited screen caps… because I can. I may start using these visible captions instead of invisible ones in all future posts. 🙂

The episode begins with Xiaomei and bread, the two best things in this series so far!

Shining Hearts: Xiaoase no Nyan Episode 4

May 11, 2012

Starting next week I’ll be volunteering again for eight weeks, this time at Deudraeth Cyf, which should be a fantastic opportunity! This will conveniently end the week before my birthday and graduation ceremony, which is also the first week of the Summer anime season. Here’s hoping everything goes according to plan, unlike last time… Either way, expect delays in blog posts for the next two months. 😛

This episode properly introduces Xiaomei, the catgirl antique dealer. For this reason alone, I had considered putting it in my green top 3 in last week’s episode rankings… but instead settled with not putting it in last place. I hope she’ll forgive me.
