This was a great conclusion to the first cour. All of the main conflicts have been dealt with (namely, Ashito's incapacity to understand football as a sport requiring more than one player and the animosity between the promoted and tryout players) and the ep itself was strong. Since its premiere, this has been a very … Continue reading Ao Ashi Episode 12 Review
What even is this.
Ashito's still on his task to find out whatever the reason for Asari and Kuroda's snapping was and well, it's still not going as well as he wish it would. It's complicated enough to have to discover it from ground zero, made even worse when a divide in-between the B team players, promoted players vs. … Continue reading Ao Ashi Episode 11 Review
Anime has a fun relationship with its endings, considering that they're what leaves you the long lasting impression about what that show is. And if you've been following my reviews on this series, you shouldn't be surprised to know how high the expectations for this ending in particular were. I'll leave more for the overall … Continue reading Dance Dance Danseur Episode 11 – Finale Review

With Spring Break on the horizon, a great portion of the Esperion Youth players part away home and the rest of the more unfortunate have no choice but to spend their days at the dorm - and Ashito, who's been assigned with a rather difficult task by coach Date, begins to drive himself into a corner.
Whenever this show went to touch the circumstances sorrouding Luou's childhood it reached its most dark depths. Such was seen in ep 3 and with this one giving focus to his childhood attachment to Miyako, we were granted to see it happen again. It's a dark and crude moment - the heaviness with each the … Continue reading Dance Dance Danseur Episode 10 Review
This confront is the best thing happening in Lendard right now. What's best, is that there's too much awesomeness happening in this arc.
In many ways, this was the most fun I had while watching Ao Ashi so far - maybe it's because of my mood (which has been made much better knowing we're having 24eps!) but I know that whenever a story can treat its subject matter with sheer excitement, that feeling is passed on to its audience.
Part of the reason why I think this story works so much is precisely because of the age the main cast is - this, of course, comes from the author's (Asakura George) ability to write them, but the drama spawning from ballet and their lives is truly fascinating to watch. As such, this ep (which … Continue reading Dance Dance Danseur Episode 9 Review
