Extra: Fall line up

Arpeggo of Blue Steel
Are we overdue for another post-apocalyptic show? Probably. But that’s the spot this show is supposed to fill. Ocean war games in a future where most of the land has been swallowed by the sea? Huge ships powered by…. lolita girls? Ok, so this may or may not be a show to be taken seriously. But, hey, who knows. Only time will tell if this show is any good or just another pitiful attempt at making up random moe situations.

Beyond the Boundary
This show is by far my favorite for this season’s streaming line up. The animation and the characters are fun and dance the line between comedy and serious drama rather well. Not to mention that the main male character is actually pretty comical. I’m still early in the stream, so it’s hard to say if this show will keep its momentum or if it’ll fall for the same trap so many before end up in: predictability and a non-stellar ending.

Kimi Ni Todoke
Every now and again it’s good to go back in time to see a classic you never had a chance to see before. And if you haven’t tried this shoujo show out yet, don’t hesitate to jump in! although there is a comedic element, this is probably more along the lines of a pure shoujo show and, amazingly, is quite refreshing due to the main couple actually having a very healthy and respectful relationship (gasp!). The main heroine is wonderfully clueless, but she is truthful throughout which really sets her apart from other heroines in this genre. And considering all the shoujo horrors that have been coming out lately, this show is a great way to cleanse the mind and remember that guys can and should be respectful and girls can and should speak their minds and not hold back.

About inrosegalaxy

Raised on everything from Moby Dick to the Star Wars X-Wing books from a young age, it came as no surprise to anyone who knew me that I’d become a literature graduate and avid writer. But my love of a good story wasn’t restricted to the written word in my early years. Star Trek, Mystery Science Theater 3000, and badly dubbed Godzilla flicks helped shape my love of science fiction on screen as well. I wrote my first story while in the second grade. It was a horrifying tale about murdering a fairy-eating dog via a slice of pizza (in my defense, my only exposure to pizza was in the cafeteria and I swear you could legitimately kill someone with those things). I was a special snowflake. Today I write science fiction, fairy tales, Gothic epistolaries, fantasy and anything else that pops into my bizarre and twisted mind. I write new articles for my blog every Tuesday and Thursday. And if you happen to fancy Japanese animation, I also run an anime review blog, RRAR, which updates every Monday.

  1. so far beyond the boundary is holding its stand firmly. the story is about to go in deeper on how our main protagonists’ fates intertwine.

    and now, i would like to rewatch kimi to todoke too. i so love sawako ♥

    • I’m happy to hear that!
      And, yes, I’ve been really enjoying watching Kimi Ni Todoke myself. It’s a sweet show. Plus some of the “pick up lines” the side characters use are just GOLD. lol
