Kimi no Na wa Review – Time, Space, and Mysteries

In some ways, this anime film was almost exactly what I expected, but the unfortunate thing was that it felt a little too closely aligned with my expectations, to the point where I didn’t really feel any particular moments that really outright impressed me at all.

Ao-chan Can’t Study! Anime Review – A Must Watch Rom-Com Anime Series

I genuinely don’t understand why so many people dislike this film. Don’t get me wrong, Ao Chan isn’t reinventing the wheel, but it’s always compared to Kiss x Sis or Redo of Healer.
