Vlad Love is one of those comedy shows that makes you wonder what is about. It’s basically a girl meets vampire girl. Yes, it’s starting to sound like a similar premise with Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san. The only difference is that while there is not as much yuri, its 100 times crazier. Not to mention, it’s the first anime series that Oshii Mamoru made in over three decades. The answer is, does it live up to its name?
In the late 2010s, it seems that more yuri-genre shows are being adapted into anime. In 2018, we had Citrus, Happy Sugar Life, Asago to Kase-san, and Yagate Kimi ni Naru. To continue that trend, in 2019, Fragtime is another hour-long original animation adaptation of a two volume yuri-genre manga with some science fiction elements mixed into it.
Of course, this show had production problems, but for not the reasons you think. While show made it to theaters, after a few weeks, Tear Studio disappeared as they went bankrupt. Therefore, people who worked on the production didn’t get paid. While this original animation eventually made it onto Blu-ray and DVD. You might be wondering, was the wait worth it?
Back in 2018, I kind of forgot about this show despite being a Manga Time Kirara title since I had too much to watch. Yes, it’s Yuru Camp, which is a slice of life story that focuses on cute girls going camping outdoors. As expected, this might be one of the most enjoyable iyashikei shows, especially given what is happening now.
Back in 2018, I haven’t got the chance to watch Shoujo Kageki Revue Starlight. While it took a while to get a chance to watch it, I am so glad that I watched it when I have the chance to it. Besides the pairings, there are plenty things to like about it besides the performances and even the music.

It’s no surprise that these days, I tend to enjoy the usual slice of life anime with a mostly, if not all female cast. Perhaps one of the most known school-girl slice of life story that publishes in the Manga Time Kirara Carat is Hidamari Sketch. It’s not too surprising since this is the first title out of many published in the Manga Time Kirara that received an anime adaptation.
If you take a first glance of the show’s poster image or one of the volumes of the manga, this might remind you of another show, Madoka Magica. The person behind these character designs is Aoki Ume. She is a mangaka known for creating cute character designs.
While Hidamari Sketch is one of her well known works, she also created character designs for Madoka Magica including some characters in Magia Record, and the main character for Kirara Fantasia, Kirara. If you didn’t know, Kaname Madoka is basically based on Yuno. Of Shaft both animated Hidamari Sketch and Madoka Magica. As expected, I enjoyed the first season quite a lot since it has a lot of funny and cute moments.

After taking a break from being frustrated over the state of my blog, I’m finally back! During that time, I have completed two video games, namely Pocket Monsters Sword and Shield. As you would expect, these games are probably the most controversial. It’s not too surprising since Game Freak cut a large number of Pokémon from the games.
Now that I finished the main story, it’s time to share my thoughts. Is the game really that bad people make it out to be?

Now that the spring season is now mostly a barren wasteland thanks to COVID-19, I decided to tackle my backlog. Of course, there are a good number of shows I still have to watch, including some Manga Time Kirara adaptations. While I watched and cover a good number of them each season, there are some that I miss due to lack of time covering them.
Like with GA Geijutsuka Art Design Class, Sansha Sanyou is another one of those shows I wanted to watch after playing one of the events from Kirara Fantasia. Yes, besides Nishikawa Youko’s rich young lady personality and cute appearance gracing me, I used her a lot in quests besides Koyume, Sharo, Naru, Archive, and Swimsuit Kaoruko. I kind of like her character design and personality. While she is not rich anymore and can only afford eating bread crusts, she still has a lot of charm.
Of course, the only reason I didn’t watch it until now since it’s a Funimation exclusive. I didn’t start subscribing to it until the start of this year.

Pocket Monsters Sword and Shield are the most controversial release in the franchise yet. It’s not too surprising since Game Freak removed little over half of the available Pokémon in the franchise. They said that they will improve graphics and animations.
When the game released, it appears that they didn’t do that, which caused the vocal minority of the fandom to become angry and review bomb the game saying it’s bad. This reminds me of a famous quote of people going on message boards complaining about games they never played. With that, since I played around 14 hours with only two badges, it’s time to share my first impressions.

I have to admit that after playing Kirara Fantasia, an event “Hitsugi Katsugi, GA, and the Golden Kuromon Statue” finally introduces characters from Satoko Kiyuki’s works. They are Hitsugi Katsugi no Kuro and GA Geijutsuka Art Design Class, which the latter received an anime adaptation. Charmed by the cuteness of Yamaguchi Kisaragi, I decided give the anime a watch.

This consists of Machikado Mazoku, Ochikobore Fruit Tart and Koisuru Shouwakusei (Asteroid).While the former will air this summer, the other two will air probably in the fall or in the near future. With that, It’s time to take a look at the first volume of Ochikobore Fruit Tart (おちこぼれフルーツタルト, lit: Dropout Fruit Tart) manga.
