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

Black Mirror season 3

God, I love this series, and how scaringly close the mirrored reality is coming.Counting 6 episodes, this year has some american made ones amongst it as well.  The style differs, the hardness doesn't.For me, it had 3 good, 2 weak and 1 very strong episode in the year.  Especially the San Junipero, where dying old people's consciousnesses are uploaded in a VR world, was an artwork episode for me.But the one of a kid being blackmailed after being filmed for 'giving hand to his own', the series starter where your social level is decided by social media likes, or the (1.5 hr long) finale with the drone ants where great episodes just as well.I wasn't to crazy of the videogame episode and the army system one, but overal, a very strong series once again.
