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.

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 ;_;

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

Updating status first, I dropped Mouretsu Pirates after last episode. I got tired of sitting through that non-ending buildup waiting for any real piracy to occur, 7 episodes and we still have nothing yet. I came up with a satisfactory conclusion though: LEGAL PIRACY IS BORING. Bad idea. End of story.

So that’s that, back to my dokidoki business then:

5. Nisemonogatari 7:

“I’m not a friend of justice. I’m an enemy of evil.”

Here I am one of those elitist wannabees who actually enjoyed Kaiki’s looooooooong double-talk nonsense about fakes and reals, except I lost any idea I thought I grasped halfway through.. In the end I did not care whether I got anything at all, just as sweet Senjougahara-san stated what would be considered Top Tier Cool no matter what context it was said in: “I’m not a friend of justice. I’m an enemy of evil.” DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP

4. Hunter X Hunter 20:

“Apologize to Killua!”

Maybe that wasn’t particularly the strongest moment in this week’s HxH, which was probably Killua vs Illumi fight. We had all the oppressive tension built-up there till it became uncomfortable to watch at one point. But it was Gon who broke the tension, and he proved once again that he’s the toughest when it came to psychological battles. He did so with a single, apparently childish line: “APOLOGIZE TO KILLUA!” AND I DARE ANYONE HAD THE GUTS TO  LAUGH. p.s. It’s also obvious now why Hisoka is having the hots for Gon haha, just look at that kawaii angry expression on his face awww ❤

3. Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou 7

“She got me again..”

I admit not being the biggest fan of Nichibros, I don’t even get all the hype for this show. It’s still fun, and I keep watching in anticipation for “that” moment to crack me up every week. Last couple of weeks were not as good as the first episodes so I started to think Danshiko lost its touch, then Literary Girl happened again. She got me again.. Every single line in that skit had me lol, then the series of chain reactions made me burst in laughter ahahahaahaha! And seriously, agreed on saying that there’s no reason to pretend to be cool, let’s show our lame sides right? EXTRA POINTS FOR MORAL VALUES NICHIBROS

2. Chihayafuru 20:


Being the competitive type and all, this came to me as a big twist in Taichi’s character after all hardships he was put through in the previous arcs. And seriously man, Harada-sensei has My Face When Taichi said: “I’m not so much focused on making class A, as I’m focused on becoming someone who doesn’t run away.” HNNNNNGG DAT PRICELESS FACE. Also in related news, did I mention that I’m shipping hopeless Taichi X Chihaya all the way kyaaa~

1. Steins;Gate 25:


OMG whaaaat?! I didn’t know there was a new special coming up this week I felt all the dokidoki rushing the moment I heard about it lol. I MEAN SUDDENLY EXPECTATIONS GOING SKY HIGH AND YEAH MAD SCIENTIST HOUOUIN KYOUMA LIVED UP TO THEM. There is no single moment I can pick, all of this episode was a ride of awesome! It reminded me of every single thing I loved about Steins;Gate, it even had me go back to my score in MAL *in the most fangirl mentality I had* and change it from 9 to 10 haha! Until the movie comes out.. El psy congroo.

Errr oh man what am I doing here? In all fruitless attempts in the past my longest blogging experience lasted one month, ONLY one month.. So what to do if I suddenly got motivated to start aniblogging again yet I know I’m still too lazy to keep up writing posts? Maybe I should start by limiting my activity to one post per week, picking up the laziest day to write that post should help as well. I CAN DO IT! Oh wait, maybe that’s not the issue and it’s just me refusing to put any real effort into writing full posts. Knowing myself, that’s probably it. Eh, so what if I do NOT write posts? Better just drop the idea then.. Or heck, let me try anything that MIGHT work for me. Alright, a weekly post of..of..of….hmmm…. awesomest dokidoki inducing moments I had while watching anime in that particular week? Hey, that kinda sounds interesting! I think I’ll try that, and I don’t need to scratch my head much about what to say if I go with it right? *zomg imagining posts all about silly fangirling yay*

So here is the plan in short, weekly posts to be submitted on Fridays and should cover episodes airing from previous Friday to Thursday (noticed something? it’s only 1st week and I’m already past deadline lol). Each post will consist of favorite 5 moments I experienced in that week, the kind of stuff that let me go “this is why I love animu ffffyeah”. SPOILER ALERT of course. No further explanation needed I guess, so here we go:

5. Mouretsu Pirates 6:

“Who Told You We’re Playing Fair, Dumbass.”

I was just ready to get disappointed that Marika lost her 1st official swordfight as a pirate captain then.. “BANG!” …. Hey that’s dirt- Oh shit what a smart move! Now that I think about it, genuine pirates must have such tricks up their sleeves and it’s part of them being pirates to use them. I mean, just look at that proud pirate expression on Marika’s face! If only that was a real duel and not an act. DEMANDING MORE PIRACY ACTION SHOW IS CALLED MOURETSU PIRATES DAMMIT

4. Chihayafuru 19:

Kanade Going Full Delicate Mode Celebrating Her Victory

Among the three matches we had in this arc, I enjoyed the one between Tsutomu and Kanade the most. I’m kinda surprised by that considering how it’s the lowest ranked match, but interesting enough it also had the most logical tactics haha.. It couldn’t end a better way, I was like “yes she won! err did she fall asleep? no she’s not Chihaya.. oh could it be? Kanade awwww ;_;” and Tsutomu’s reaction to save the situation made this even better! I’m proud of you D-rank members, also congrats on moving on to the next level.

3. Guilty Crown 17:


Gai’s reappearance was the baddest thing happening in Guilty Crown, like, ever! Wait no, I mean his resurrection is sure an asspull but for a noble cause don’t you agree? He greets OH MA SHOE.. Whoosh! *hand flying* FFFFSHIT!! *power absorbed* EHHHH! Then Shu screaming “AAAARGH MY KING’S POWER!..” LOLOLOLOLOLOL. Now Gai honestly you’re 17-episode late in pulling what you did here but no complaints, it’s not your fault that GC writers themselves didn’t seem to ever consider the possibility of transferring power using such a simple method before lulz.

2. Natsume Yuujinchou Shi 7:

Afraid Tanuma Taking Natsume By Surprise..

Oh god this show, I was gonna be satisfied enough if Tanuma just apologized to Natsume for causing him more trouble than helping him and then both of them work the issue out. But no, their relationship became far closer than that and Tanuma suddenly decides to open up and reveal his weaknesses and fears to his friend.. “I’m happy that you trusted me so I don’t want you to regret getting too close to me” awwwww Tanuma ='( Also I’m so happy for you Natsume I know how much you treasure the kind bunch of people you’re surrounded with after all years of suffering alone before..

1. Nisemonogatari 6:

“I Will Help You Lesser Being Just To Fulfill My Tsundere-tic Desire.. Ka Ka”

We had so much Senjougahara goodness in this episode, but it was still the level of goodness you expect from your sweet-tsuntsun-Gahara-san you know. What had me all OMG!EXCITE though was the unexpected badass offer of help to Araragi from loli vampire Shinobu. So effing cool how bluntly she was saying “oh c’mon I can’t go out of character *wink* just order me to help so that I’m forced *wink wink* to obey you *wink* human shit!” OH AND ASDFGHJKL THAT BGM I WANT THAT BGM KUSOOOO
