Kanon(2006): the halfway mark review


As I said in my first impression review of Kanon(2006), I have not seen the previous 2002 series and knew nothing much about Kanon before I started watching it. After watching the first couple of episodes, I thought the show was okay but it didn’t particularly catch my interest. But now that I’ve watched 13 episodes of it, I have to say that I have a lot more respect for it.

Yu-Gi-Oh! the Abridged Series: the best thing on YouTube!


First of all, for those of you who’ve seen the YGO Abridged Series on YouTube, I’m sure you’ll agree that it definitely deserves all the praise I’m about to give it and that LittleKuriboh has done ingenious work on it. But for those of you who’ve never seen it, whether you love Yu-Gi-Oh! or hate it, there’s a good chance you’ll still find the Abridged Series absolutely hilarious…

Merry Christmas, from MAY! ^_^


To all my loyal visitors to Mainichi Anime Yume and AnimeYume.com, and to anyone else reading this, have a wonderful, white Christmas and a happy, healthy new year! ^.^ Like some people, I don’t care for the religion aspect of Christmas as I do for everything else; the lights, decorations, music, gifts, warm feeling, etc,. Despite many things keeping me from really having Christmas these past few years, such as lack of time and money, having pretty much no relatives to celebrate with, living where it doesn’t snow, etc., I still can’t help getting a warm and happy feeling when Christmas comes around. Though it’ll never be quite the same as when I was a kid, I don’t think there’ll be a time when my “inner child” doesn’t get at least a little excited on this day =) I once read a quote that sums it up good; “Christmas is not a date, it’s a state of mind.”

Anyway, it’s not much, but I do have a few Xmas-related anime things to offer you guys today…

Mushishi eps 1 to 4 review

Mushishi has been on my computer in my “anime-to-watch” folder for a while before I finally sat down and marathoned the first 4 episodes last night. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the series, and after watching these few episodes, I think it definitely deserves the praise it gets…

All of Cardcaptor Sakura for only $75!


Despite the major anime fan I am, I only buy anime DVDs once in a while. Most of my money goes towards other anime products, such as posters, calendars, keychains, plushies, etc,. I think this is because I only like to buy box sets and they can be pretty expensive. And I’ll usually only buy DVDs of a series if I’m sure I’ll like it(if I’m gonna spend that much of my hard-earned money, I want it to be worth it =P) But every now and then I’ll treat myself to an anime box set, so when I found out about this awesome holiday deal at AnimeNation, I just couldn’t pass it up!

An Anime Fan: the odd one out


This is actually a topic that has been on my mind since I became an anime fan, I just never got around to writing about it. I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way, so I would love to hear other anime fans’ comments about this…

Asatte no Houkou: a sweet and simple series


When I first started watching Asatte no Houkou, I could tell that it was different and I liked it, but at the same time, I thought it would get boring pretty soon because there didn’t seem to be enough of a story to it to keep it interesting. But now that I’ve watched over half of the episodes(there’s 12 episodes total I believe), I felt that I just have to give it the praise it deserves, especially after watching episode 8.
