Planetarian1

My fifth completed visual novel was another one by Key. This time a rather short kinetic visual novel, Planetarian: Chiisana Hoshi no Yume (Planetarian: Dream of a Little Star).

Fate/stay night (Visual Novel) – Review (Spoilers!)

FSN1

Fate/stay night is one of the longest visual novels out there. I’m proud to have finished reading it. It was a long journey, but it has finally come to an end (at least for now). Instead of writing a separate review for each route, I decided to write one review for the whole game.

Night of the Forget-Me-Nots (Visual Novel) – Review (Spoiler-free!)

forget-me-nots1
The name of the visual novel is Night of the Forget-Me-Nots (or Wasurenagusa no Yoru in Japanese). My first thought was – a mysterious name, promising to tell a creepy story. Next, I looked the visual novel up on visual novel database (vndb.org), and saw that it was in the “short” length category (2-10 hours). Fair enough. I already had a long game on my hands, so I was more inclined to choose a short one. So I did.

Unbreakable Machine-Doll (TV) – Review

Machine-Doll1

It was almost a pure chance that I watched the first episode of Unbreakable Machine-Doll (Kikou Shoujo wa Kizutsukunai) this season. It was in the second half of my 16-anime to-watch list. It was also one of the few series I decided to follow – I was hooked right from the first episode.

Tasogare Otome x Amnesia (TV) – Review

ImageThere is one anime genre that is particularly interesting – horror. Having watched quite a few of these, I still haven’t seen a successfully scary anime. Higurashi got close, but it wasn’t really even horror. Another showed a great beginning and wasted all potential later. Tasogare Otome x Amnesia also tried to make something scary – but it was better with the comedy that was added.

Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (TV) – Review

ImageOne of the lighter series this (actually, already last) season. Just 13 episodes long, Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (“My Little Monster”) is a romance comedy. First of all I want to point out that it succeeded at what it was trying to achieve – it’s one of the best rom-coms I’ve seen in my life.

Bokurano (TV) – Review

ImageI’ll be honest – I only picked up Bokurano because I was looking for something similar to Steins;Gate. Under normal circumstances, I probably wouldn’t even look at a mecha anime from 2007. However, as it went, the similarity between the two, and the ‘psychological’ tag intrigued me enough to try watching Bokurano.

Hoshi no Koe (Voices of a Distant Star) (OVA)

ImageHoshi no Koe, a 24-minute OVA, tells a beautiful, yet sad story. It really shows how small humans are compared to everything else in this universe. Even as specks of dust, though, we have our own feelings, and are ready to protect them with all we’ve got.

K (TV) – Episode 13 (FINAL)

ImageAfter taking a break from blogging for the Christmas, I’m back with some sad news. This season’s Project K is over. I wrote about all episodes, but this one was probably the most impressive one.

Sword Art Online (TV) – Review

ImageOne of the greatest anime series to air in the recent years. That’s what I thought when I first started watching Sword Art Online back in the summer. It was so good, that I couldn’t wait for every episode, and after episode 3 – I picked up the novel.
