If I were to materialize sex into a anime, that anime’s name would be Honey and Clover. But no sex before you are married, right? :D You can watch Honey and Clover as a substitute before then. Running Honey and Clover was the best decision Noitamina ever made. The show doesn’t have samurai-esque massive “mobile suits” or exceedingly high amounts of fanservice. The selling point is its ability to display a slice of life as it really is. Except for Morita. He’s just awesomely kickass.

Warning: Even though there are no indecent pictures, this post isn’t for KIDS! This following anime is certainly not for kids either.
Lately, I’ve discovered I have a very twisted taste for anything that is EVIL or at least abnormal, partially due to the fact that I’ve been re-watching Kara no Kyoukai and the scene where Cornelius Alba plays around with Toko’s head still roams in my mind. And so, I’ve decided to visit some of the most evil anime in history. The first title of “The Evils of Anime” will be Blue Flames. I’ve found this anime thanks to Scamp’s Terribad Anime Reviews

Yo! During my hiatus I started watching some doramas out of pure boredom. Sure it might sound weird, but that’s just a reflection of how interested I am in the current anime shows. Other than laughing a while with BtTtS2 and screening my imagination with Usagi Drop, I can’t find anything that really pulls me away from my Wii-playing-couch (Damn Mario Sports Mix, it’s quite addictive!)… Ok, got out of the topic… Coming back to the doramas, what I wanted to illustrate was the Asian drama way. Being from Mexico, I’m used to watch some soap operas every now and then, specially those with a historic background, and have found out that the points that make them so popular is that they’re live fairy tales, where the poor cute girl finds her sissy-face prince and live forever happily after defeating countless obstacles, bringing down numerous opponents and convincing his mommy that the raggedy princess is actually worth his love.. (hold on, I’m about to puke.. *gulp*.. ok, let’s keep going).
Hi there! It’s been a while since I last had the honor to post my shallow words into this wonderful blog. It’s weird how you realize something is important only after you start missing it so badly that holding up without it is actually painful… well, that wasn’t the case in here, but still I really missed writing down for all of you!
Before I start babbling nonsense about many interesting otaku topics, let me apologize to both readers and writers of BnB for my absence. Unfortunately, real life is not precisely like anime or mangas, and sometimes we have to take a small hiatus to set all the wheels back in the road… Fortunately (at least for me..), it seems that I’m all set to get back to my weekly posts.
Well, first of all, I haven’t been completely out of the anime world during this time, and I also have been pending of some manga series pretty interesting to comment about. So, if you allow me, I’d like to give some brief update at least about my main topics. Will update on other series soon!
Finally I had the chance to watch Ponyo on the Cliff courtesy of one of my local libraries. I know, I know, the movie’s been out for a while, and yes had I really wanted to watch it that badly, I would’ve found some way to get my hands on it rather than waiting for a library to get rid of their copy to make room for new movies. …Okay so I may have forgotten about Ponyo for a bit, but I did always want to watch it. And now I have.
(Oh: I should probably warn you about spoilers – not that I’m deliberately spoiling the story for whoever hasn’t seen it yet…)
So it turns out putting all my eggs in Moshidora’s basket wasn’t the smartest of things to do and I kind of lost interest in the rest of the season because of it. That being said Moshidora was probably the show which was most affected by the disaster in Japan being delayed by near on a month and then having its 10 episode run squashed into 2 weeks. Still I doubt that had it been aired weekly would it have improved it.
So here is my final thoughts on the series which didn’t turn out to be winner but was still rather enjoyable and at 10 episodes is worth a run if only for the last 3 episodes.
Hey there! I hope there are many survivors out there, otherwise, writing down this post for purposes other than keeping a personal diary would be meaningless…
While waiting for the world’s end (again…) I had nothing I would like to die watching, hence I started checking on my manga sites and found out some really good titles (well, not all of them, but some where highly recommendable…). So I thought to myself that if another apocalypse is about to happen soon (you know, every 2 or 3 months the world is about to end at one point or the other… ) these are some titles that you could read while your parents wall the doors, granny prays in unknown languages in front of a set of candles in a corner of the room and your neighbors run like headless chickens around your yard (for those that are laughing, this is not a joke, but an anecdote…).
So, hope you like these recomendations, and if you don’t, I’m always open to suggestions (and donations, of course..)
