Well, the day has finally arrived. I’m sure some of you may have been wondering what was going on with everything and why no new chapter has been released in almost 2 months. Well, it’s because I kind of hit a block, then I had the stress of my life piling up and I just kind of wanted to do other things for a while. However, I spent the last two days finishing up the final three chapters and so I can officially say that Forever Friends is complete. I really tried to end things with a, perhaps some might say, open ending because I felt that this was best for the theme.  My intention was to leave a bit of an impression, that makes you really think about the flaws of humanity and if it will ever be possible to achieve true equality and true happiness in life and love. I also felt that it might be nice to allow the readers to form their own endings for each of my couples and/or family units and so I’ve left their fates open too.  Overall, I find the conclusion satisfying. The last three chapters can be found here! Bonus chapters and such will be available in time, but Patreon will be the first to get them,  just fyi.

So now, I’d like to thank you all for reading and supporting this story and any others in the past or those yet to come. This was a fun journey and I look forward to bringing you even more interesting stories, with a diverse cast of characters and themes. I’m already brainstorming my next project and soon I’ll have my starting draft on paper. I won’t be sharing this story publicly for a while, but if you become my Patreon, you’ll get to see it develop over time and even get to offer feedback. I also have some other top secret things coming up in regards to my written works, but that’s also going to be Patreon exclusives. However, I won’t abandon my loyal followers of this blog. I’ll have goodies for you to check out too, so stay tuned.  For those who are new to my page and my works as a whole, you may find the link to my Patreon below, along with the link to buy me a coffee or donate to my paypal. You can also find my Facebook below as well as my twitter. Thank you again!

Koi to Uso

Genre Tags: Drama, Romance, School

Seasons/Episodes: 12

Synopsis: In a futuristic society, Japan has implemented a complex system referred to as “The Red Threads of Science” to encourage successful marriages and combat increasingly low birthrates. Based on a compatibility calculation, young people at the age of 16 are assigned marriage partners by the government, with severe repercussions awaiting those who disobey the arrangement. For Yukari Nejima, a teen that considers himself average in every way, this system might be his best shot at living a fulfilling life.

However, spurred by his infatuation for his classmate and long-time crush, Misaki Takasaki, Yukari defies the system and confesses his love. After some initial reluctance, Misaki reciprocates his feelings in a moment of passion. Unfortunately, before the two can further their relationship, Yukari receives his marriage notice. He is then thrown into a confusing web of love and lies when his less-than-thrilled assigned partner, Ririna Sanada, becomes fascinated with his illicit romance.

*This rating is unbiased and based completely on the honest ratings for each category and so may often be lower than my personal rating. This is the rating you’d probably like to go by when deciding if you’ll watch a series or not, unless my explanation for my personal rating of why it deserved a better rating is one you agree with

Personal Overall Rating (based solely on my personal enjoyment): 8/10

*This rating is totally biased and based completely on my personal feelings of the anime. This will often be higher than the technical rating because sometimes I love certain series despite them being kind of bad. My reasons for the higher rating will often be given here or in the GC.

Should You Watch: If you liked Kuzu no Honkai, you’d probably like this too.

General Comments: Watching the first few episodes of this immediately will give you a sense of deja vu if you watched Kuzu no Honkai (Scum’s Wish) as the basic theme is similar, but Koi to Uso is by no means a copy cat. Koi to Uso has a very unique plot that I actually found interesting, but it’s complicated relationship dynamics is where the real comparison lies.Where Kuzu had a love triangle, this had more of a love square. I kind of liked it though, because it kind covered all sides of the love spectrum. There’s a guy who likes a guy, a girl who likes a guy and a girl and a girl and a guy who like each other, but the guy also likes another girl. It’s a complicated messy web just the same, but where they really start to diverge is the finale. Where Kuzu had a more bittersweet ending, Koi had more of a an open ending. This wasn’t surprising considering the circumstances and I may even say I liked it, except there is one problem that it also shares with Kuzu. The openly gay character always draws the short end of the stick.

Overall, I found Koi to Uso a good treat for my romantic cravings, but as a whole, I liked Kuzu no Honkai more and thought it was far superior. Koi isn’t a bad watch though, so if you like romantic dramas, definitely give it a go.

Synopsis: The Abyss—a gaping chasm stretching down into the depths of the earth, filled with mysterious creatures and relics from a time long past. How did it come to be? What lies at the bottom? Countless brave individuals, known as Divers, have sought to solve these mysteries of the Abyss, fearlessly descending into its darkest realms. The best and bravest of the Divers, the White Whistles, are hailed as legends by those who remain on the surface.

Riko, daughter of the missing White Whistle Lyza the Annihilator, aspires to become like her mother and explore the furthest reaches of the Abyss. However, just a novice Red Whistle herself, she is only permitted to roam its most upper layer. Even so, Riko has a chance encounter with a mysterious robot with the appearance of an ordinary young boy. She comes to name him Reg, and he has no recollection of the events preceding his discovery. Certain that the technology to create Reg must come from deep within the Abyss, the two decide to venture forth into the chasm to recover his memories and see the bottom of the great pit with their own eyes.

Should You Watch: Absolutely! No questions asked.

General Comments: Every season, there’s that one anime that not many people pay attention to at first, but then it has an amazing premier and keeps getting better as it goes, to end with a stunning finale and becomes the dark-horse of the season. Yes, Made in Abyss is it. It blew any expectations I had far out the water and might be one of the best anime I’ve seen of it’s kind. It’s literally a masterpiece and I can’t find fault in anything it’s done, except perhaps the over sexualization of children in parts, but even that can be forgiven when the remaining content and the plot is that amazing. The feels were strong in this one and there may be moments not for the feint hearted, but it’s not so much so that it can’t be enjoyed. Although the season wrapped things up in a nice bow, I really hope we’ll see it continue on in a second season, as I’m not ready to ascend from the depths of the abyss just yet. Please watch this show, you won’t regret it.

Genre Tags: Game, Mystery, Psychological, Seinen, School, Shounen, Drama

Seasons/Episodes: 12

Synopsis: Unlike many schools, attending Hyakkaou Private Academy prepares students for their time in the real world. Since many of the students are the children of the richest people in the world, the academy has its quirks that separate it from all the others. By day, it is a normal school, educating its pupils in history, languages, and the like. But at night, it turns into a gambling den, educating them in the art of dealing with money and manipulating people. Money is power; those who come out on top in the games stand at the top of the school. Yumeko Jabami, a seemingly naive and beautiful transfer student, is ready to try her hand at Hyakkaou’s special curriculum. Unlike the rest, she doesn’t play to win, but for the thrill of the gamble, and her borderline insane way of gambling might just bring too many new cards to the table.

Should You Watch: If you like psychological game anime with crazy characters, for sure!

General Comments: This was probably the craziest anime of the season, figuratively and literally. I think the main guy might be the only sane character who isn’t a total gambling psycho. However, the craziest thing of all, is that it’s the insane gambling ladies, namely the lead lady herself, Yumeko, who makes the show that amazing. They could have had a standard anime about the art of gambling, but the sheer insanity of the activity and how much of an obsession it can actually be makes it much more interesting. You can truly feel the obsession of the compulsive gamblers and you can’t look away because every game pulls you in. The real star of the show is truly Yumeko however and she is reason alone to watch. She’s a gambling mastermind and watching her epic take-downs are the most exhilarating and savage things you’ll see this season.

As good as the anime is, I highly suggest reading the manga, as it’s that much better.

Should You Watch: If you don’t mind slight NTR and like yuri drama, go for it.

General Comments: This show was probably the most harshly received anime I’ve ever seen in the YuriNation. To say they hated it would be an understatement. It’s not surprising to see non-yuri fans bash it, but the greatest hate came from the nation itself, which was honestly disappointing and made me ashamed of my fellow citizens. I’ll admit, that when I first began the manga, I thought it was kind of trashy, but as it developed, I started to get what the author was going for and the anime was partly responsible for that realization. Now that I have a deeper understanding of the plot and why it is as it is, I’ve come to respect the work that much more. Watching the anime was like watching a crazy, juicy, soap opera. It was so bad, but you couldn’t look away.

The bottom line is, yes, it was messy. Yes, it was rushed. Yes, they may have changed some things from the manga, but considering it only had 12 episodes at about 9 minutes each, it was a decent adaptation. They worked with what they had and I honestly don’t think they could’ve made a better adaptation under their limited conditions and resources. NTR is certainly not for everyone, but it deserves to be respected as a canon yuri work that will serve the nation as a pioneer to getting even more yuri adaptions.
