Before you wake up/Yume ga Sameru Made, a stunning college work by artist loundraw with strong vibes of Makoto Shinkai, the director behind Your Name.
The colours, the sci-fi/fantasy theme, boy meets girl, sunbeams/sunflares, the feelings evoked. Even though the art style isn’t exactly the same, the feel of the work is similar. A story about a relationship where boy meets girl, troubled by missing memories, a trick played by the passing of time and other science fiction and fantastical mechanics.

I got around to watching the last 3 episodes (9-11).
It’s good. I liked it. I want a third (and likely final) season.
But the last 3 episodes of Saekano’s season 2 did fall a little flat.
Here are some highlights, followed by some thoughts on where How to raise a boring girlfriend Flat falls short for me.

I’m 3 episodes behind on Saekano S2. Ep 9, 10 and 11.
The procrastination is real. My heart is still not ready.
I’m afraid for the characters. I’m afraid that the show will fall short of my expectations.
I wish I could treat this anime like eromanga-sensei (fun, no expectations), or Re:Creators (trainwreck pacing, no expectations).
Oh, and with this 3 week hiatus, I can barely remember the name of the blonde twin-tails doujin artist. I guess she should be getting more screentime in these last few episodes.
The first volume of Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash that I preordered finally came in the mail.
I was afraid that it might’ve been lost in shipping. A long time ago, a book I ordered on book-depository was lost in shipping (which they very kindly refunded when contacted). But there would’ve been a really long wait for another copy, the pre-orders were totally sold out. Continue reading “It’s finally here! Grimgar vol.1”
Putting away watching this week’s episode of saekano(ep 9 iirc) because I’m afraid to.
From the manga I know that this ep is right about when akane, a star-producer/creator from rouge en rouge, poaches from blessing software.
I know it’s gonna be messy. I immensely regret spoiling myself now.
I’ll have to look for something else to do in the meantime I guess.
I’m really looking forward to this one.
It looks gorgeous, and what I know about it has me intrigued. I’ll have to take a look if there’s an English translation for the light novel.
“I will run as fast as I can to wherever my customer desires. I am the Auto Memories Doll, Violet Evergarden.”

A Megumi episode!
Though a little slow, it set up for many things to go wrong next episode. Continue reading “Saekano S2E8”
