Hey Everyone! Back with another one of these. I’m not back to writing, though I have secured a job to help me weather through the process of finding something more permanent. A new year means new things and hopefully 2014 will be even better than 2013 for me. For those curious on what I’m up to, I do regularly update my Facebook pages so be sure to check it out under the about page.

Otherwise, Xewleer has started to focus on his own writing and may make an appearance here or there with some writings. I’ve not felt much of a writing spark and I do regret that some of my writing projects have been on hold for quite a while now. Hopefully, I can get a bit more funds and eventually be able to devote alot more time to it. Anyways here’s a bit of tidbits on the next season and my expectations etc…

Ash here with another Afterword. This time I decided to marathon the two ef series, which I’d been meaning to for years. I find that my graduation in a month as an ending point of sorts for part of my life and I hope to wrap up many things I had wanted to do before reaching that point. Ef is a series that has been on my list for so long that I now own the bluray discs of the actual product in english. It’s been a long 6 or so years since I first laid eyes upon it, but hopefully now I can log this series down and be done with it. As for the ratings at the end, I realize there’s been a pattern with Afterwords lately but that’s just how it is. These are the kinds of shows I’ve been watching and they deserve every bit of it.

Ef: A Fairy Tale of the Two consists of two parts. The first part is titled Ef: The First Tale and primarily consists of the story of Hiro Hirono, Miyako Miyamura, Kyosuke Tsutsumi, Kei Shindo, and Yuko Amamiya. It consists of a prologue and two main chapters with Miyako as the focus for the first chapter, and Kei for the second. This is followed by the second part of the story, Ef: The Latter Tale, which primarily deals with the story of Renji Aso, Chihiro Shindo, Shuichi Kuze, Mizuki Hayama, and Yu Himura. The second part consists of two more main chapters and an ending chapter, with Chihiro as the focus for the third chapter, and Mizuki for the fourth. Bringing the two parts together forms the all-encompassing Ef: A Fairy Tale of the Two. The story is set in the town Otowa (音羽).

Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun Afterword

Ash back with another Afterword. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted one of these, but I feel that this little gem of a series deserves this kind of recognition. Spring Break has ended for me and I return to classes tomorrow. There’s about 8 more weeks to go and then I’m out and done. The feeling is still pretty tense, but I’ve found a bit more joy in my life in the past six months. Between meeting a few new friends and interacting with older ones, I’ve begun to understand more and more about the wonders of life. I’m tryin to be optimistic here, but as a student on the verge of leaving that area of comfort, what can I say?

I’m not too sure about how this blog is going to go about in the next few months. I had originally started this as a “whatever” blog and now it seems most of what we post is anime. That isn’t necessarily a problem, but I want to vary it a bit more.

Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun focuses on the relationship between Shizuku Mizutani, who has absolutely no interests except in studying and her plans for the future, and a boy named Haru Yoshida, who sits next to Shizuku in class but rarely attends school. After Shizuku is tasked with delivering class printouts to Haru’s home, she meets Haru, who immediately greets her as a friend, starting their new relationship.

Happy Birthday Ash 2013

I just want to live happily, since there’s no use forcing the things I cannot achieve.

Happy Valentine’s Day 2013

“Once you are loved and once you have loved, you cannot forget it”
Happy Valentine’s Day.

Yūta Togashi is a boy who, during junior high school, had ‘adolescent delusions’ (中二病 chūnibyō?, lit. “junior high school second grade illness”), believing that he possesses supernatural powers and dubbing himself the ‘Dark Flame Master,’ therefore alienating himself from his classmates. Finding his past embarrassing, Yūta attempts to start off high school where he does not know anyone, free from his old delusions. This proves to be difficult, however, as a delusional girl in his class, Rikka Takanashi, learns of Yūta’s past and becomes interested in him.

As the plot progreses Rikka becomes more attached to Yūta, who despite finding her delusions irritating and embarrassing, accepts her. He helps Rikka with a number of things, including founding and maintaining her club and tutoring her. When he joins her on her summer vacation, Yūta learns that when Rikka was very young her father, whom she was very close to, died unexpectedly due to a terminal illness, causing her to fall into her delusions. After Yūta agrees to help Rikka search for the ‘eternal horizon’ (which she believes will lead her to her father) she becomes romantically interested in him and vice versa.

The story’s beginning to wrap up. It’s a pity. I wouldn’t call this an excellent anime, but it was certainly my favorite this season
