ToraDora: The Tiger Meets The Dragon Review

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Anime

ToraDora: A Quick Synopsis Takasu Ryuuji is the leading man in ToraDora feared by his classmate for his eyes – which he unfortunately inherited from his father. Not only that, but anyone who’s bumped into him also feels threatened. The only people who’s not threatened by Ryuuji’s eyes are two of his friends, Kitamura Yusaku and Kushieda Minori. However, that all changes the day when he meets Aisaka Taiga in the school’s hallway. Taiga and Ryuuji’s meeting was a bit awkward to say the least. It was due to a mix-up around the rumors centered around their meeting and the fact that Taiga later misplaced a love letter in Ryuuji’s bag. This brought the two of them together with a common purpose; to help each other out all for the name of love. ToraDora: The Review One thing I always keep in mind when it […]

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Anime

Love! It’s an emotion that’s all around us. Love brings out the best — or even the worst — in all of us, and it helps shape your lives in one way or the other. Love, in other words, is what School Rumble all about. The show is mostly about Harima Kenji. A high school student that falls in love with Tsukamoto Tenma. However, Tenma is madly in love with a guy named Karasuma Ooji. Unfortunately, neither of them are particularly successful at getting their feelings across. All I can say is that a high school romance is a fickle thing indeed.   School Rumble: Overview Of The Anime Back then, I didn’t know what School Rumble had to offer. Right up to this moment, I’m not really sure if some relationships here are serious . That or if they’re just lampooning. I could probably […]

Koe no Katachi: A Glimpse Of The Life Of Shoya And Shoko

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Movie

Makoto Shinkai, Your Name’s director, has described Koe no Katachi (The Shape Of Voice) as “too cool”. Can this tale of disabilities, school bullying, friendships and growing live up to such a high praise? Opening the film a song from The Who, My Generation, is either an act of supreme confidence or extreme folly. Fortunately, Naoka Yamada’s Koe no Katachi more than manages to live up to the promise set in those opening minutes (add in Shinkai’s praise). Koe no Katachi: Kids Can Be Quite Cruel To One Another Shoya Ishida’s less complicated life becomes a lot more confusing when a deaf girl, Shoko Nishimiya, joins them in his elementary school class. It’s not long before his curiosity, and that of his classmates, turns into something nasty. When Nishimiya eventually transferred to another school, the blame for bullying her falls squarely on Ishida’s shoulders. It may […]
