An avid connoisseur of Anime and Manga who gets into trouble due to an inability to stop inputting and outputting and decided to unload the random information collected in her brain onto the people of the blogosphere.

Find me on

So far, I’m really enjoying this season of Free!.  KyoAni has really spared no expense at notifying the audience that this season is going to be fairly similar to the first season in plot and theme.  Instead, the part of Rin Matsuoka will be played by Sosuke Yamazaki with his own form of trauma, ideas about Haruka, and reasons for wanting to be part of the “team.” 
Still, I’m not entirely certain how I feel about Sosuke yet as a character.  I’m assuming that I’ll grow to feel about him like I felt about Rin towards the end of the first season, but so far it’s too early to tell for me. 
Even so, the spirit of the first season is very much present in this season, and that’s something I’m thoroughly enjoying.

Is it wrong to take amusement and enjoyment in the fact that last season there were comments about The Mangaka and His Assistants by women to the tune of “This show is so perverted, yet I can’t help but get a kick out of it!” while this season it’s men commenting on Love Stage with a “I can’t believe I found a yaoi this freaking hilarious and fun!”

Because I am so amused by this it’s not even funny.  And proud, actually.  Go anime community go for your not caring about gender-based-binaries and just watching entertaining anime.

Official Hiatus

Until such time as I can actually have time to watch anime and focus on reviews.  If I complete final reviews, it will be short rather than my longer reviews.  My apologies.  I don’t have the time or mental capacity right now.

I am going to try and queue up pictures and try and find a way to keep this blog updated.  Sorry!

On IAOs Absence

Hey all!  My goodness, I am so sorry for being inactive for so long.  I honestly am about 2-3 episodes behind on all the anime I’ve been watching this season as well as on other posts.  I haven’t looked for art in weeks either.  Generally, life has gotten rather busy due to the advent of a summer job and some other personal things that have cropped up.  Mostly, it’s just difficult to post on ongoing anime when I haven’t really been watching any, which is really a shame!

I do have this week off, so I’m hoping to catch up on what I’m watching as well as do reviews, fanart searches, and the preview for the next season.  If anything, I’ll at least be able to queue some stuff up.  I’m going to try and be more active or at least be more attentive to adding things to my queue.

Thank you for your patience!

<3 IAO
