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.

Conclusion Rating: 7/10

Technical Overall Rating (based on average of above ratings): 7.4/10

*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.

Should You Watch: If you like RomComs focused around the lives of gamers, yes!

General Comments: This anime was amazing in how funny it turned out to be. I watched it simply because it was going to feature gamers and seemed interesting, but it exceeded my initial expectations. It turned out to be the most hilarious show I’ve seen this season, with gold level comedic timing in the jokes and characters with very distinct personalities. Seeing those personalities interact is what makes it so funny. The constant references to games and the struggles of a gamer was so relatable to gamers and self-proclaimed nerds like myself, that it couldn’t help but be a hit among them. My only complaint is that the finale was a bit underwhelming and didn’t resolve certain plot points. I pray we’ll get a second season, because I’d love to see more of those gaming dorks and their awkward romantic adventures.

Should You Watch: If you love romance and comedy, for sure!

General Comments: This was the definition of short and sweet anime. At just 12 minutes an episode and in a 4-koma format, we got a series of skits featuring the various couples and their awkward interactions. It was simple, but executed well such that you could never be bored and would be left wanting more. Some couples were more successful than others at their aspiring romantic exploits, but there were none who you could dislike. I’d love to have another season or more, because it’s got the formula that gives it an easy longevity.

Hey everyone. I’d like to officially announce that I’ve edited Bound, my Romance novel and updated the cover, all to better fit the tone of the story. This is what I consider my 2nd Edition, though the link for purchase in the Amazon store remains the same. In case you need a reminder, here’s the synopsis and the new cover. The links will follow after.

Bound (4)

Jenevieve Barlow is a young woman with a tragic past, always seeming to lose the things she loves. After the death of her best friend, Jenny finds herself lost and barely living. Then she meets Kale and suddenly her life is filled with color once more. However, Kale doesn’t come without his fair share of baggage, the biggest being the son of a Business Tycoon, though he doesn’t wish to inherit the burden. They fall in love, but there are many forces at work pushing them together and pulling them apart, which leads them on a long journey that tests just how far they are willing to go to be together. They will be forced to ask themselves, once you are bound in friendship, love, responsibility and even death, can you ever really be free and do you even want to be?

Buy it from the Amazon store in print and ebook at the following link. Thank you and please enjoy and please share!

Hey everyone, Happy 4th! Today I bring you chapter 4 and 5 of my sci-fi novel, Forever Friends. Read them on Movellas here. Thanks as always and enjoy. I’ve also posted snippets from each chapter as usual.

Chapter 4 Snippet:

He opens the door and prepares to walk out, but peeks back to look at Percy and is almost struck with fear at what he sees. His usually bright and animated Percival, looks down with an expression full of anguish, pain and anger. He looks up slowly at Victor, tears still in his eyes and with a serious and haunting tone voice he says, “if you walk out that door Victor, I will never forgive you. I will curse you for all eternity and see to it that you never find happiness again. I don’t want to hurt you, but you’ve hurt me too much to care anymore. This is my final ultimatum. Stay here with me and let go of this foolish quest, or leave and destroy our happiness forevermore. What will it be?”

Chapter 5 Snippet:

“You make it sound like we’re going to force the humans to submit to this program or something. I want the people to know that although we believe this will lead the greatest level of happiness, they are not obligated to register. I’ve always designed this to be a voluntary program, so that people can decide for themselves if this is the kind of future they want. The day we lose our free will, is the day that we will no longer be considered human. You agree, right darling?”

Lena is silent for a moment, but then smiles and says, “of course babe, of course.”

Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata ♭

Should You Watch: Definitely if you watched the 1st season and liked it.

General Comments: So, this will probably be the surprising one for readers, who may find it strange I’d put such an anime as my #2 of the season, but those who know me and follow me regularly, are likely not shocked in the slightest. No denying I’m a total Saekano fangirl since the 1st season and I’ve only become a bigger fan after the second. Saekano is kind of like High School DxD’s more wholesome cousin. I love the previous series, despite the ecchiness and harem theme, which I usually dislike, and with Saekano, it’s the same but even more so, for a similar reason. Both High School DxD and Saekano have a common aspect, it’s a romance disguised as a harem. It’s less noticeable in the prior, but even in the later, it’s not easily noticed unless you’re really paying attention. An avid romantic like myself is always paying attention to even the most obscure of romantic cues and so I have no doubt in my mind when I say there will only ever be one winner in both these series. However, out of respect to other’s personal preferences, I’ll refrain from stating them in this post.

Back to the main review now, Saekano 2 has managed to not only retain it’s charm and enjoyment from the 1st season, but surpass it. Season 1 was all about getting the team together to make a game, as the friendships were growing. This season put the game making on the back burner a bit and focused almost exclusively on the interpersonal relationships between the team members and even when it returned focus to the game making, it only served to further develop or interfere with these relationships. In simple terms, the romance and drama were vamped up to maximum velocity this season and I for one loved it. We also got better development of each of the girls, most importantly Kato, who had not been as present in season 1 and even when she was, she was difficult to read. This season allowed us to see who she really was and I am living for it, as she is my best girl of the series. As a whole, Saekano continues to be a RomCom “Harem” a cut above the rest and I really hope we’ll be getting a third season sometime soon or at least that the novels will be localized so that I may continue the story there. I really do love it that much.

Seasons/Episodes: 12

Synopsis: Five hundred years have passed since the humans went extinct at the hands of the fearsome and mysterious ‘Beasts.’ The surviving races now make their homes up on floating islands in the sky, out of reach of all but the most mobile of Beasts.
Only a small group of young girls, the Leprechauns, can wield the ancient weapons needed to fend off invasions from these creatures. Into the girls’ unstable and fleeting lives, where a call to certain death could come at any moment, enters an unlikely character: a young man who lost everything in his final battle five hundred years ago, the last living human awakened from a long, icy slumber.
Unable to fight any longer, Willem becomes the father that the girls never had, caring for and nurturing them even as he struggles to come to terms with his new life, in which he feels the pain of helplessly waiting for his loved ones to return home from battle that his ‘Daughter’ once felt for him so long ago. Together, Willem and the girls gradually come to understand what family means and what is truly worth protecting.

Should You Watch: If you like a blend of romance and tragedy in your fantasy anime, for sure!

General Comments: SukaSuka was one of the more talked about shows of the season and if you watch the first episode, it isn’t hard to understand why. It’s certainly got a interesting plot that grabs you from the start, but then it mellows out to a more SoL theme, all while secretly plotting to destroy you by it’s conclusion. The plot may not be action-packed every episode, but there are serious moments and when the action really kicks in, it hit you hard. The romance between the two main leads is a gradual, but certain journey and it becomes something really special, even with the heartwrenching back drop of the last half of the series. I can definitely say it’s one of the better ones of the lacking Spring 2017 season, but for me, not the best of the season. My top three are probably more obscure, but that’s how things tend to go for me. I definitely can recommend everyone give this one a go, as I don’t think you’ll find yourself dissatisfied.
