Kokoro Connect episodes 01-03 (but mostly 03) – Initial Thoughts, and A Swift Kick

Hans Moleman Productions Presents: Man getting kicked by classmate. Plenty of shows to choose from this season, but finally I’ve settled on Kokoro Connect to blog for summer. Uta Koi was a very close second, but I feel like I’ll have more to say about this one. First, some initial thoughts on the show in general and […]

Kimi no Iru Machi chapters 91-100 – Bang

The Kyosuke arch-arc comes to and end, and in a way that I wasn’t sure the manga would have the guts to pull off. But now the floodgates are open for drama the likes of which we’ve never seen before. Well, that I haven’t seen before.

2012 Summer Season Preview and Some First Impressions

It’s that time again! Summer season is starting, and here’s our thoughts on how it looks as the first handful of shows are starting to air. As usual, our information comes from Scamp’s chart, ANN, MAL, Wikipedia, the usual suspects. And as always, Crusader’s standard disclaimer applies. A Message from the NKVD: Well its time […]

Kimi no Iru Machi chapters 81-90 – Same S***, Different Town

Haruto is all moved into Tokyo and meeting new friends. Once again, his friends are much, much cooler than he is, but at least they’re getting more screentime/pagetime than Akari and Takashi usually did, since they’ve involved themselves pretty heavily in his life thus far. Haruto is still deadset on meeting Yuzuki face-to-face to try […]

Kimi no Iru Machi chapters 71-80 – Leaving A Town Where You Lived

What’s with this? Two weeks in a row worth of chapters that are actually kinda good? In this week’s chapters, Haruto gets some bad news about his relationship with Yuzuki, but at the end of the school term sets out for Tokyo. Much of the chapters this week are about him getting ready to leave, […]

Kimi no Iru Machi chapter 61-70 – Kitchen Nightmares with Chef Shiho Ramsay

The new year continues on into spring and summer while Yuzuki and Haruto continue their long distance relationship. A temporary job introduces a new character, and an upcoming school trip to Tokyo gives Haruto some motivation to work and save his money. The trip itself and a request from Nanami bring complications to things, though […]

Kimi no Iru Machi chapters 51-60 – I Hate You, And I Hate the Manga You Write

So this week some stuff happened, but it’s all the same you’d expect from this author. Seriously, I don’t even care enough to rage about the characters, but I am raging about the author and the way he writes. These chapters cover the school festival, from the last of the preparations to the festival itself, […]

Kimi no Iru Machi chapters 41-50 – Himuro the Necromancer

This week’s chapters followed events after Nanami turned Haruto down, with summer coming to a close and Rin departing for Tokyo. School begins again and the characters begin preparing for an upcoming school festival. Haruto and Yuzuki are part of the planning committee along with classmates Kikukawa Kotone and Himuro. Kotone seems extremely shy but […]

Kimi no Iru Machi chapters 31-40 – I Ain’t Even Mad

Apologies for the delay, got a bit off track last week. This week’s chapters focused on the characters’ summer break and the lead up to the town’s summer festival, as well as the festival itself. The timing of the chapters was rather convenient, since it nicely stops for my week’s reading at a big confession […]

Kimi no Iru Machi chapters 21-30 – All In The Family

This week the chapters revolved around two things. One, a secret that ended up being not quite the reveal one might think it would be. A second, and most significantly, a trip to Tokyo where Yuzuki’s family is seen for the first time. Haruto (sigh, of course) comes along for the trip and ends up […]
