I Trick Matt Into Watching Cinderella Nine episode 1

You know, it’s been an unspoken goal of this blog to get Matt converted to Sports! anime. And by unspoken, I mean I talk about it all the time. So when Matt announced that he was slowing down just a little bit on the blogging, I figured it was the perfect occasion to lay the...

Irina Goes On About Sports Anime Again

-or – Teammates aren’t friends and rivals aren’t enemies You know I keep telling you guys I like sports anime but I’ve very little proof to back it up. I rarely talk about the genre, heck I haven’t even watched that many lately. I’m not even sure why. I just got distracted I guess. But...

Tsurune Episode 13 – Bullseye

Genre: Drama; Sports; School Studio: Kyoto Animation For the past few weeks, I’ve noticed a fairly large number of commercial for high tech shooting bows playing on YouTube. Considering my personal internet habits, I can only assume that the ridiculous number of Tsurune screencaps I’ve uploaded has tricked google into thinking I’m some kind of shooting...

Tsurune Episode 12 – The Importance of Being Ochi

Genre: Drama; Sports; School Studio: Kyoto Animation Waiting is always the hardest part, isn’t it? Those moments of uncertainty where meager hope keeps the pain nice and sharp and healing has no chance to begin. When you’re in the moment your vision dwindles down to the smallest pinpoint. Your senses dull and you walk around in...

Tsurune Episode 9 – On A Dark and Stormy Day

Genre: Drama; Sports; School Studio: Kyoto Animation The boys are back on their home turf and I have to admit I found I a little comforting. I have always been a homebody. Even if I’m away on vacation somewhere, there’s always that moment when you slink back to your hotel room, absolutely exhausted and crumbled unto...

Tsurune Episode 8 – Straight as an Arrow

Genre: Drama; Sports; School Studio: Kyoto Animation Guys, when does trolling become bullying? First Tsurune basically mocked me for not using the Other Shu title for two weeks in a row. Now, hen I more or less randomly picked “Another String to your Bow” last week, they have an entire restringing scene with emotional significance in...

Tsurune Episode 7 – Adding a string to your bow

Genre: Drama; Sports; School Studio: Kyoto Animation It’s like this show is daring me to use that “other Shu drops” title. Mocking my lack of gumption and failure to follow through with my dumber instincts. Why show..why?… Adding a string to your bow is an odd expression which means acquiring a new skill or figuring out...
