My readership is still small, but I do appreciate it when people talk about my thoughts on the anime I review. Yeah, some may be antagonistic because their views are different, but come on, if we’re thinking the same thing and agree on the same thing, wars shouldn’t have existed.

With that said, I recently argued that Aikatsu! doesn’t need drama or romance because the point of Aikatsu! is about girls going about their idol activities. Is this really true?

While my preference of anime porn is indeed yuri, I don’t hate het. My favorite anime of all time is Vision of Escaflowne and the anime I consider the most beautiful anime ever made is Full Moon wo Sagashite. Who are the couples in these shows? Yes, exactly.

At any rate, I will prove my point at the end the review.

Movie hype and drama.

A series that’s all about a group of girls doing idol activities and nothing more.

I’m on the latter.

My literal reaction after I compromised my August’s budget because I bought a phone. I won’t be eating properly for one month. Kuyashii! But…

[Ohys-Raws] Aikatsu Stars! - 14 (TX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_16.18_[2016.07.10_17.48.47]

My literal reaction after buying my first ever smartphone and loving the hell out of it. AND I can play Photokatsu without any lag! Ureshii!

Time for another Review Marathon by yours truly. I’m liking the episodes, maybe, except for episode 17 because there is no way any sane person wears mismatching clothes like M4. God, I thought K-Pop artists were the worst dressers in recorded human history.

This is an almost spoiler free review so I won’t say much. And why the hell aren’t you reading my Dark Souls 3 post, huh? ;_;
