“Candy Color Paradox” First Impressions (Ep. 1 & 2)

There’s something captivating about watching rivals inside the same industry with contrasting personalities suddenly being thrown together. It’s an electrifying dynamic that’s fun to watch either fall apart or somehow work.

“Takara kun to Amagi-kun” Series Review (Ep.3 to 8)

Starring Sato Arata and Oriyame Nao as main leads, Takara-kun to Amagi-kun is a high school drama about, well, high school.

“Fudanshi Bartender no Tashinami” Series Review (Ep.1 & 2)

I really do not know how to describe Fudanshi Bartender no Tashinami, because the way I spent the last hour howling on my couch would describe it as funny, but it does not seem to cover the entirety of what it was. The show is eye-wateringly-hilarious. Especially for the fudanshis and fujoshis out there. There wasn’t even one situation where I could not relate to the guy. I was fangirling, just like him, the entire time.
