My New Blog – Sekijitsu

 

If y’all wondering why I haven’t been posting here, or that my Heta no Yoko-Zuki blog is gone, it’se because I founded a new blog called Sekijitsu.

It’s been running for a year now and you should definitely check it out. We have a great team and we cover a lot of the currently airing anime, as well as some manga and a few recommendation and editorial pieces as well.

If you somehow stumbled upon my humble HNYZ blog (you always remember your first), be sure to check out my latest stuff over at Sekijitsu. You won’t regret it ^_^

Toradora! Ep. 16

1-copy「 とらドラ! 」Episode 16: One Step Forward

Summary: Kitamura is not budging and still insists that he has no interest in running for student council president, even though everyone is trying to get him to change his mind. Taiga and Ryuuji’s plan of terrorizing the school into submission has no effect on him, much to the dismay of the school. With the deadline for candidacy drawing closer, the duo rack their brains trying to figure out a plan B. That same night, Ryuuji receives a call from Murase, who happens to be on the student council. Murase seems to think that Kitamura is indifferent due to the fact that the current president Kano will be moving to America in the next few days. Realizing this, Ryuuji immediately runs out to find Kitamura, planning to beat some sense into him.

1「 ライドバック 」Episode 01: Scarlet Rideback

Summary: Set in 2020, Rideback takes place during a future where a resistance movement, called the GGP, has taken control over the world. By using a new advanced weapon they developed, they were able to overpower the previous government with ease, as the difference in strength between the group and the government were comparable to an elephant fighting an ant.  Due to this incident, several problems arose from the incident, as restlessness and conflict can be seen in the world. None of this matters however to a certain Ogata Rin, the protagonist of this story. She is in the middle of her biggest ballet performance of her life. It also potentially proves to be her last as she suffers a severe ligament injury to her left ankle, stopping her short of her dream to surpass her deceased mother and become the best dancer in the world. After a childhood in which she idolizes and trains under close tutelage of her mother, everything changes for her due to this.

Toradora! Ep. 15

4twge「 とらドラ! 」Episode 15: The Stars Are Far Away

Summary: Something seems to be bothering Kitamura and he has been acting a little off lately. With the upcoming presidential elections coming soon, he erupts in anger in the middle of a class discussion, refusing to run for the position and declaring that he’s quitting the student council, even though everyone thought that he was a shoo-in for the spot. The very next day, things turn for the worse as Kitamura is seen in front of the school causing a ruckus, with his new blonde hairdo. The teachers hold him in the interview room trying to calm him down and figure out why he’s been acting weird. Ryuuji’s homeroom teacher, Ms. Koigakubo, tries to get to the bottom of this and enlists the help of Kitamura’s closest friends, Ami, Ryuuji and Kano (the student council president). Ami and Ryuuji had no idea what has gotten into him. Kano also denies knowing the cause, adding that since Kitamurahas resigned from the council, she has nothing to do with him anymore. Something seemed wrong with the way Kano acted, as she also says that the teachers were “wasting their time on that idiot”.

The Anime Hit List

Since this is an anime blog, I will be introducing the animes and mangas that I am currently following. From this list, you can see some of my tastes in anime and you can judge whether or not this blog has similar preferences to your own. A few in this list are widely-followed, while a few others might just be gems that need more shine.

Most of the animes here are the more recent releases from the previous fall season, as I will not be listing ones which I have watched in previous months/years. That will come in the future, when I finally get around to making an account on MyAnimeList. The mangas however are mainstays in the business, with the majority of them being in publication for a few years now. I think you should be familiar with most in that category. 

Of course, only some series in this list will be blogged on this site, as there are currently too many  for me to update on a consistent basis. I will place the chances of me actually blogging something underneath each series.

Well without further ado, here are the animes that I am currently watching:
