I’m sad *sobs* so many shows I love ended this week:

5. Hunter X Hunter 24:

A Casual Father-Son Chitchat.

Yet what was that tense atmosphere brrrrrrr.. Really, it’s funny how that “fatherly love” Killua was getting creeped me out far more than the whole of Another finale, what an absurd BS that show turned out to be lol.

4. Danshi Koukousei No Nichijou 12 (finale):


Seriously, this show couldn’t have possibly ended in a better way than that! Dammit Nichibros, I even chocked in what I was eating from laughter when both this reveal and my favorite punchline in the finale occurred at the same time *so I bet that will make me remember this awful hilarious experience for while* hahahaha.. kuso just how brilliantly we’ve been trolled.

3. Chihayafuru 25 (finale):

2nd season plz ( ; △ ; )

FINALE.OF.THE.SEASON. so I’m craving more Chihaya so onegaiiiiiii!!!

2. Natsume Yuujinchou Shi 13 (finale):

A Family.

It was hard to pick this one, that finale was just so sweet. Natsume’s old  house was full of heartwarming memories, and I especially adored the drawing Nyanko-sensei  found inside one of the closets. The moment where Natsume asked for a second photo with “Nyangoro” had me go awwwwwww so much, too. But it was this, the first time we ever see a family picture with Natsume smiling in it, that had my eyes soak in tears.. ;-;

1. Inu X Boku SS 12 (finale):

I… L-love.. I Love you….

Yeah I’m serious in choosing this as my first, it could be the thousand time I watch a love confession scene and I still fell for that. Because it was so well excuted, they’re meant for each others and it was so passionate. Really, I loved how even when the annoying cliche of having kids *whoever* disturb the supposedly private moment was introduced, Miketsukami just moved on naturally with the flow. It worked. Man, it clicked. Then to give the romance even more substance, we were given a short time-skip to see how Miketsukami turned into such a sweet emotional-being bringing up the subject of kids so soon awwww.. Hey y’all I was shipping Miketsukami X Ririchiyo all the way haha!  Now that my ship sailed way farther than I ever expected, I couldn’t be more proud. ❤

I know I will regret not writing about Yahiro going like “FFFF OMG TWEEST IS OH MA SHOE BECOMING NEW JESUS?!!” someday so there at least I said it here haha! Alright, then:

5. Nisemonogatari 11

Something Oshino would never say?

…..”Sayounara”. Yeah, that one line left the biggest impression on me. That also might be what I needed to hear since the end of Bakemonogatari. Actually I loved the whole twist with Kaiki-tachi the most, and his philosophy was really intriguing to think about and analyze. But seeing how the dialogue in monogatari series always tries its hardest to be complicated, I guess simplicity won me over here.

4. Chihayafuru 24

The Chubby Queen.

I.WAS.SHOCK. Also, it was really amusing how seriously Shinobu’s weight-gain was taken in the context of this episode, and I’m sure no one ever saw the whole issue coming haha!

3. Another 11

“desu kara……. KOROSUUUUUUUU!!”

And then hilarity happened lololol. This episode has taken the “JUST WTF LOL” treat to a whole new FFFFFFFF level, and dammit how much I LOVED THAT!!!!!!1!

2. Natsume Yuujinchou Shi 12

“But, I was a kid, too.”

I’m not exactly sure why, but I couldn’t hold my tears when she said that. It might be things I experienced myself in the past, and this felt like the perfect excuse that you could never use back then, and that’s also because it’s too late to admit it when you realize all the horrible deeds you were doing shamelessly. She was jealous as a kid and she regrets it now, but it still hurts when she realizes nothing can undo the past. Wahh I can so relate to that. ='(

1. Inu X Boku SS 11

*sobs* overload of Mekitsukami monologue goodness *sobs*

Oh man, that was exactly what I’ve been wishing for since the first time Miketsukami opened up a bit to Ririchiyo, but I didn’t think we’d be taking it all in one shot! And on top of it that emotional climax at the end. AND ME COMPLETELY SOLD.

So this turned out to be quite an emotional week, and I’m completely fine with that:

5. Inu X Boku SS 10:

A Loyal Dog?

My god, Miketsukami confirmed for hottest bishie, and it’s not just looks here. Gotta bring looks first though, casual clothes and glasses? Totally felt for Ririchiyo as her view trembled upon examining him haha.. On top of that, he started acting wicked to further mix her emotions, just so that he gets the chance to sweet-talk her as she shifts to full angry tsuntsun mode. Him says: “would I bite the hand that feeds me?” and then hnnnng frank dokidoki alright!

4. Chihayafuru 23:


Yet *awwwwwwwww~* Harada-sensei is all ready to take them for you. Seriously, the dude is amazing don’t you agree? Ah, might as well admit to myself that Harada-sensei was my secret favorite character all along. :’3

3. Mirai Nikki 21:

“We’re the same. I see now. I wanted to be saved too.”

Err I never expected I would cry watching Mirai Nikki, but I admit being vulnerable to unpredicted tears, especially when accompanied by effective BGM along with them, and that’s the exact recipe we got here. I really liked the whole showdown between Minene and Yukiteru, she was a likable character from the beginning and it would’ve been a waste if she was just shot down to death like say, eleventh *lol*, in the same episode. The way her weakness was revealed clenched my heart, but it wasn’t until the moment of her “shocking” memories of her family that I broke in tears when she did.. RIP Minene =”(

2. Nisemonogatari 10:

“You’re looking lively. Did something good happen?”

Yes, a damned plot happened! I was torn choosing between this and Kaiki’s abrupt reappearance *which had me lolololol*, but in the end I figured Araragi’s beastly rage over gigantic finger wiping out his sister’s upper body had a bigger dokidoki impact on me. And it wasn’t just that actually, I was filled with tension since the time Yotsugi kept ringing the doorbell of Araragi’s house to every other warning, threat and reveal uttered by all involved parties, bluff was it or real. I especially loved how Araragi felt weak compared to his “servant” Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade Loli-vampire Oshino-Shinobu, and how she in return also felt weak compared to Yozuru. Hey I see what they did there, cooking up a dazzling antihero as the final villain, and I think it was awesome!

1. Natsume Yuujinchou Shi 11:

A Single Photo…

…is enough to make me cry my feelings out, that’s Natsume for you. I became so attached to Natsume that I can easily relate to him in every emotion he experiences, and I felt troubled since the moment he lost his precious picture of his parents. I also connected to his shyness when he tried to hide the fact that he lost the picture, and then felt relieved when Tanuma caught on that. And last when the picture was found, I became so eager to get a glimpse of his parents like they were my deceased relatives that I never met. As Natsume showed it to us, gasping of what resemblance he has to them,  my emotions swirled to surface and my eyes got soaked with tears. “When I looked at their kind smiles, and thought that I was supposed to be there smiling, too… I couldn’t stop crying.” …so yeah this show, I wanted a hug after that ;_;

It’s all about laughs *and ice-cream :p* this week:

5. Hunter X Hunter 21:

Pedo face sending chills down my spine..

Molesting Hisoka is nothing new I know, but eh that was still damn creepy! If the look on Hisoka’s face tells us one thing, it would be that we don’t want to ever know what the heck is going on inside his head, except errrrr, maybe fellow pedophiles. Also, I have to feel sorry for kids watching HxH, I mean isn’t this *brrrrrr* a bit too much for them to take?

4. Inu X Boku SS 9:

Game Rules: “speak in a confrontational manner.”

Karuta: “Confrontational?” Watanuki: “Umm, talking badly to each others” Karuta: “ja, Watanuki no.. baka.. if you don’t eat ice-cream with me, kirai” AND THEN KUSOOOO DOKI DOKI SHITERU YO ❤ ❤ ❤

3. Another 9:


“JUST WTF LOL” describes my reaction best as I was watching this. And how else could I possibly react? First I cracked up laughing as lightning stroke the poor kid. And then, even before I had time to recover, clumsy falling-girl delivered ANAZAA blow. And knocked me down.. so yeah “JUST WTF LOL”. Another might have failed horribly as a horror by now, but it certainly doing a good job as a comedy haha!

2. Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou 9:

Hidenori sets an example of how a real bro would act like!

First, I’m glad that Nichibros finally shone light on the overused dropkick punchlines *that were never fun to start with pffff* in this episode. And to conclude the skit with an original dropkick scenario that IS ACTUALLY FUN, now that’s brilliant! So about that, no, manly tears, hugs, and hand-holding is not gay.. it’s the bro thing to do lol.

1. Natsume Yuujinchou Shi 10:

Drooling Nyanko-sensei MOEEEEEEEE *nosebleed*

Yeah that’s right, Nyanko-sensei drooling over mighty-looking Youkai as if he was craving the most delicious scoop of ice-cream was the most HHNNNNNNGG-inducing moment I had all week. :3

Seeing which stuff I picked pretty much tells me how ridiculous this week has been haha! Both Natsume and Chihayafuru dedicated their time to build-up in the latest episodes, so there wasn’t much to feel dokidoki about in them. =( I had the chance to watch Hotarubi since it got subbed though, and it was amazing so I’m fine with the way things worked out.. well anyways, time to get to our crowning ceremony now:

5. Mirai Nikki 20:


Sure that wasn’t the baddest appearance of Yuno, and it was a bit too short to deliver the proper dose of Yandere-service this week. Having said that, Yuno-dere-sama was still able to impress and promote the episode from being meh to worth watching in the last minute.. Just think, who else can fire SMG at living beings LIKE A BOSS with such an innocent smile on their face? And as if that wasn’t badass enough, she also came equipped with a showoff katana haha! Seriously, Mirai Nikki needs to forget boring twists and just focus on being hilarious lol.

4. Nisemonogatari 8:

If Koyomi was sealed in a room with his sister, he’d probably XXX

Now I didn’t really like how Smutonogatari wasted a whole episode on Karen, but I gotta admit I was impressed by all the effort SHAFT put to create the most innovative ever errr, incest hentai. I was genuinely overwhelmed by how craftily that lewd atmosphere was created to turn the boring task of tooth-brushing into the most awkward foreplay material. I MEAN #$@%&! IT WAS FIVE MINUTES OF PURE WTF! And dammit Shinbo, I wanna try brushing my teeth with BGM now. Confirmed for dirtiest dokidoki ever? Depends on what’s left in store for us in the last 3 episodes of Nisemonogatari, but I doubt anything can top toothbrush-gasm zOMG.

3. Guilty Crown 19:


Err I actually have no proper words to say other than “LOLOLOL HOW EFFING CONVENIENT LOLOLOL”. Dammit Guilty Crown, just how long can you keep up this vicious cycle of fitting dumb plots and pulling ass-twists without losing your touch? My suspension of disbelief has been long shattered, and I’ve never stopped craving more OH MA SHOE since then haha! So what do we have this week? From Mama Shoe trying to save her little dead girl Mana to revealing her relationship with evil Onii-san to stealing Another Last On Earth Void Genome to having the dilemma of offering it to Son Shoe to throwing it at him and warning him that it would kill him to Son Shoe accepting his fate to take all our pain to asdfghjklasdfghjklasdfghjkl.. and we can go on forever lol. Best of all was definitely OH MA SHOE pulling his own void though, who’d argue about how brilliant that was *and for him to point out that the reason for not doing so before was him being a shitty coward added extra facepalm.jpg value lololol*. And then his void was a hand.. A DAMN HAND! A DAMN RIGHT HAND! A GODDAMN RIGHT HAND THAT TAKES ALL OUR SINS AND WILL KILL SHOE! ALL DAT DAMNED SUBTLE FORESHADOWING FOR ANOTHER JESUS ENDING FFFYEAH!!

2. Inu X Boku SS 8:

Miketsukami confessing his social anxiety for the first time..

Ah I love those moments where you sense friends/lovers/partners/etc.etc. forming new bonds and getting closer to each others. So yeah, after weeks of watching the same static relationship between Ririchiyo and her servant Miketsukami, we’re finally moving somewhere here. I was slowly getting disappointed after every failed attempt of Ririchiyo to properly speak with Miketsukami. But when she succeeded in doing so, that really paid off. As she was persistent on demanding an equal-status interaction with him, having Miketsukami respond by saying: “But.. I don’t know how to interact with someone other than to serve them” was truly sensational.. that clicked perfectly. Now he’s definitely my favorite character in the show, so I share the same interest with Ririchiyo in wishing to understand him more.. Oh and speaking of getting close, Ririchiyo interpreting the shared social awkwardness with Miketsukami as “a little like me, and that makes me happy”  felt deliciously authentic too.

p.s. mini rant: leaving your climax scene post-ED is plain stupid pfffft.

1. Hotarubi no Mori e

“No matter what, don’t ever touch me.. ok?”

Aww that.. touched my heart, or I should say.. it squeezed my heart so gently I couldn’t restrain my falling tears. ;_; Oh god, the whole movie was soul-quenching to watch, and it concluded with a brilliant tinglish note. I can’t express those overflowing emotions I have without spoiling the whole story, so I gotta hold myself back. Just that last scene though, that might be the most subtle emotional rollercoaster ride I had, and the best cup of bittersweet love in a very long time. Oh Gin, *sobs* your fragility charmed my heart </3
