Hiatus Status: I have COVID-19

A short update that I recently took a test for COVID-19 and officially got positive for it yesterday. Fortunately, for the past two weeks, I only have a cough and running nose. No fever or breathing issues. I never got worse. As to how I got infected, I think it's because of my dad who is also tested positive on COVID-19. Anyway, I hope I'll be able to finally post soon once I recover or if I'm w...

Mori Calliope Vtuber on Trash Taste

Around a week ago, Vtuber Mori Calliope did a guest appearance in a popular anime Western YouTuber podcast called Trash Taste (hosted by Anime Man, Gigguk, CDawgVA). Mori Calliope reveals her true behind-the-scenes personality and backstory during her interview. Here are some of my top highlights that I find to be very interesting in specific order. 1. Mori explains why she wasn't fan of idols un...

Tonikaku Kawaii Episode 7 Impression

On this episode, Nasa and Tsukasa takes a bus trip to Nara. Meanwhile, Chitose stalks them and attempts to sabotage their relationship.Okay, I'm now fully convinced that Chitose is the "annoying main antagonist" throughout this entire series. But, I'm a bit disappointed that there's no actual dark plots so far just like the author's other Hayate no Gotoku series (aside the beginning truck accident...

Hanyou no Yashahime: Sengoku Otogizoushi Episode 7 Impression

On this episode, the left behind Towa searches for Setsuna and encounters a stranger. Later, Towa gets captured and rescued by her companions. So this is basically the "recap" plot of episode 1's glimpse, but with additional scenes connecting the dots which is nice. Although, honestly, I was hoping Towa to be fully ditched because I still find her naivety to be very annoying. Other than that, the...

On this episode, Bell continues fighting Dix and attempts to stop the rampaging Wiene. Later, Bell makes a crucial decision if he should publicly protect the Xenos. Man, I was really waiting to see Bell finally defeat Dix and stop Wiene early from rampaging. But, the action surprisingly became more dark and huge disadvantages come after another for our male lead. Also, I find the near ending to b...

On this episode, Nasa thinks of buying a bigger home and confronts Tsukasa about his idea. Later, they plan to visit Tsukasa's parents for a guarantor request. Wow, seeing Nasa think up of buying a bigger home is hilarious and quite adorable. Also, I really liked how Tsukasa is fine with their small apartment until Nasa convinced her otherwise. Other than that, seeing Nasa's mom's phone reactions ...

On this episode, Towa's party visits a village to investigate the source for missing travelers. Later, they meet a monk.First off, I really love the biking travel scene because it's a very similar reference to Inuyasha and Kagome. Also, the demon slaying action at a village is pretty cool. But, unfortunately, I'm not very fond of Towa's continuous naivety that doesn't have any connection to Kagome...

Also, the battle between Bell's allies and Ikelos Familia is very nicely intense. Other than that, I hope Bell can som...

On this episode, Tsukasa pressures Nasa to watch movies. Later, Nasa pressures Tsukasa to buy diamond rings as their love symbols. First off, I can't believe this series was almost under my radar and especially it's created by the same author of Hayate no Gotoku which I'm a huge fan of. Plus, Nasa has very close similarities to Hayate. Anyway, it was quite adorable to see Tsukasa reveal her movie ...

On this episode, a demon boy begins his bone collecting rampage. Later, Towa and her friends investigate the demon boy. Wow, I'm starting to love Moroha more and more since the previous episode. She has a nice mixed personality from Inuyasha and Kagome themselves. Anyway, I find it hilarious that the demon boy plot is actually connected to Moroha. Also, it was awesome to see Myoga make an appearan...

On this episode, Wiene's Xenos group gets ambushed by the Ikelos Familia. Later, Ouranos assigns a subjugation force to counter the invading monsters. I felt sad to see Wiene's Xenos group being slaughtered and captured by the Ikelos Familia. It was just unfortunate to see Bell not being involved to help them and Gros becoming more hostile. Also, the subjagation force development is interesting. N...

On this episode, the Guild directly deploys the Hestia Familia to the 20th floor with Wiene. Meanwhile, Hestia learns about the monster situation. So I like this arc development more and more. It's wholesome to see Wiene and Bell continue being together and develop their bond. Also, seeing the Xenos finally being properly introduced is awesome. Other than that, Ouranos seems to be a truly nice ope...

Also, there's some unfortunate twists for Wiene herself. Other than that, the action is great. But, I find Bell's hesitations to be terrible and even got Ryuu suspicious. No...

Senyoku no Sigrdrifa is about special pilot Valkyrie girls fighting the Pillar invaders. On this episode, Claudia gets assigned to another Valkyrie unit.

Anyway, the Valkyrie girls are somewhat interesting. Also...

First off, I got to say the general quality in...
