Date A Live Encore

The closing OVA of the second season, released back in december 2014, touched a bit of a nerve here.And with that, I mean it positive, as it was hard, very hard, to keep dry with the intense emotions of the OVA.On the day of the Tanabata festival, Shidou Itsuka happens to meet the eerie Kurumi Tokisaki, who proceeds to ask him out on a date. Although nervous, Shidou accepts the offer. The two spend their time visiting to a planetarium, buying food at the festival, and trying out a mock wedding ceremony. Meanwhile, Shirou's friends—Tooka Yatogami, Yoshino, and Kotori Itsuka—are looking for him, while also enjoying the festival themselves. As Shidou spends the day with Kurumi, he begins to notice an unexpected softer side of her. He knows that Kurumi is infamously called the "Worst Spirit," but the girl standing before him is a gentle soul. However, as the day draws to a close, Shirou finally begins to understand the truth behind it all.Yeah, I didn't cry.  But I had a very, very hard time not to

Date A Live season 2

While it aired back in 2014, Noshi and me completed this series right on time... because past friday, season 3 went live.I really liked the first season for it's lightheartedness, and while it has all the tropes of a regular harem anime, they make it kind of unique.Shido Itsuka, who used to be a normal high school student at Raizen High, meets the first Spirit, Tohka, and awakens his power to "seal the Spirit's power". Though they may be feared and hated beings due to their immense power, Spirits were always alone and knew only combat and death. Shido, the only one in the world with the power to seal the Spirits' might, hurls himself into life-threatening dates with the beautiful Spirits in order to save them.This season, Shido is faced with of course trying to stop more Spirits, but his encounter with Miku actually makes him loose a few of them.  However, the powers moving behind the scenes make their move at that moment to kidnap Tokha, and as Shido sets out to save her, he gains some very unlike

My Hero Academia season 2

A personal favorite of Noshi, I benched the first season a while ago to have a go with her at s2, which she had already seen halfway.And while I thought the first one to be "okay", I quite liked the second one.And that second half themesong is just awesome btw...This season encompasses three big arcs in it's storyline, being at first a yearly sports tournament where the students have to overcome various hindrances, and each other.In the second arc, they are all on internship with pro-heroes, and while Midoriya learns how to control the One for All, Iida faces against Stain, the notorious hero killer.The final arc of the season takes the final exams of the class in, as the students get paired to face off against one of their teachers, being forced to overcome their weaknesses.It was as I started with a very joy to watch, and Midoriya is, to quote Noshi, "such an adorable character".Now onwards to the next season, because this stuff if surely better then the overload of Marvel and DC we have been facing the pas
