Tales from Uzushiogakure

I used to scoff a lot at the fact that I had no binding attachment to some oversaturated series on the market. The engorged entitlement in estranged mothers and fathers bringing home Harry Potter box sets or superhero pop figurines to fulfill their childrens’ temporary obsessions didn’t really compare to my interest in just making things on my own, or my faint interest that lacked that touch of physical satiation — the kind that would let me bring the toys to school and gain some self-confidence with that sweet, unrivaled fifteen minutes of classroom fame. After all, when Lisa Frank and sticker-ridden clearbooks lost their marvel, the only thing that could account for such was that market validation. Then, I remember that I did have something in my youth, actually. Except it falls on the entire premise of being a complete and utter weeaboo. I then remember that at age seventeen, I am literally as captive to it as I was at the age of ten. I can’t help but to bring it up due to the …

Zankyou no Terror — OP Analysis

Being an amazing anime, I’ve given Zankyou no terror a ton of praise. Enough of that which I feel is so well-deserved, though a bit overwhelming. Honestly, I hadn’t delved too much into the opening aside from acknowledging the amazing song, but upon rewatching it, I decided to pay more attention at the incredulous amounts of detail that this beauty of an opening holds.

These aren’t particularly underrated so if you have found a certain niche that you would like; these may not apply that well. I made this short list of three based on anime that I’ve really found enjoyable. Although they aren’t the best or  one of the most extraordinary; they’ve provided a lot of entertainment — enough to make me watch them straight or not to put them off for too long. I’m sure that at least one of these three would appeal to anyone who’s looking for a general recommendation.

Zankyou no Terror Review

“Are you going to destroy the whole world?” Two terrorists of genius intellect begun a reign of terror in Japan, citing their name as Sphinx and leaving the word von as marks of their footsteps in destruction; an array of beautiful animation, a breathtaking, close to perfect if not perfect original soundtrack and a setting so realistic and familiar with characters that one could connect and relate to, characters that you could see a piece of your soul in. No anime has left me as breathless as Zankyou no Terror did, from the soundtrack kept on replay with mesmerizing tracks, to the storyline that keeps you utterly captivated. Perhaps I give too much praise — but it’s also important to note that Zankyou no Terror has numerous flaws, which I feel are redeemed by the ending, the impact of the story; and how incredibly forgivable it is, because really, it’s one of those rare works I find in which all its mistakes are okay. Perhaps it isn’t perfect, perhaps it’s just another could have been, but it’s still beautiful, emotional, and in …
