Actually I am Episode 10 Review

i am a title

So, before I get started there might be a small rant about this, mostly comparing the manga to the anime and what not. So, with that heads up you have been warned. I will do my best not to rant too much though. So yeah, not much other than that to say other than spoiler warning.

Actually I am Episode 9 review

i am a title

With now only 3 episodes left it is starting to get harder and harder to determine where exactly they will finish this series. I have a feeling I know where, but what else will they do in that time before that little arc is beyond me. A part of me hopes it will somehow continue on and it just was not known that it would be more than 12 episodes. But oh well, time to get started. As always there may be spoilers since this is a weekly episode review and focuses on the episode itself.

Actually I am Episode 5 review

i am a title

Well before I begin this is the start of my weekly reviews where I am going to try out a new grading system. I feel like I should do this mostly because when it comes to where I give a score I feel like it is too personal since I really like these series of manga and anime. More than likely they will go into my top 15 anime once they are completed since they are both tied for 5th favorite manga. So the grade instead of being based on what happens in terms of plot for the episode, and my personal opinion, it will be a bit more of personal opinion and enjoyment factor as well as being a letter grade to not confuse anyone since series reviews will still be graded the same. I will be coping this part in the Monster Musume review as well. So with that said let’s get started for this episode. As always this will contain spoilers for the episode so you have been warned.

Actually I am Episodes 4 Review

i am a title

Well with the fact I read the first 40 or so chapters of the series in a day it is starting to kick my butt when it comes to the anime. Some things to me seem a little off and I could have sworn happened later than they did. But like last week when they combined two different chapters they got something different. Perhaps that is why. I am hoping that by the next episode I will have reread some of the early chapters to get a refresher. So with that said let’s get started. As usual weekly reviews do have spoilers for the plot of the episode, so you have been warned.

Actually I am Episode 3 Review

i am a title

Well, yay I am still juggling rather well doing two different series to review weekly. I am kind of glad. I think it is because I enjoy both of them so much where Yamada I did not. Anyway there is not much for me to say other than the fact I will probably have to go back to read a small section on the manga in order to remember the exact events, since at least to me it changed sort of. Anyway without further ado let’s get started. As always my weekly reviews do have spoilers so you have been warned.

Actually I am… Episode 2 review


i am a title

Well with the second episode and now me doing a review on it I think it is safe to say I still have no idea which series I will choose to do over the other for weekly reviews. With that said, well, there is not much for me to say right now other than the fact that the opening reminds me of Weird Al. So let’s get started on the second episode review. And as always with my weekly reviews there are spoilers.

I talk about my Childhood Friend

Well, a lot has happened to me in April. There is always something that happens, even though nothing has happened yet this year. It does not change what has happened. From the happy times like when I started writing my book. To the sad times like what happen last year when my grandmother passed away. There seems to also be something that happens in April for me.

I think it is safe to say that we all have childhood friends. Be it if it was a boy or girl that we knew when we were little. At the same time it is a familiar concept in anime, but that has nothing to do with it, although I am thinking of talking about my thoughts on that idea later. Anyway, I have not seen mine in almost a decade, well nine years, but still. Sometimes we grow apart not because we want to but for other reasons. Just like that idea of a childhood friend it is something that is easy to hold onto as well as lose.

Well, for starters it comes down to two things that made me know that today was the last time I saw her. One, my memory is always super good when it comes to random things, not sure why it just is. The other being, the fact that a few years ago I found something in my old wallet that I got the exact day when I last saw her.

It was an odd meeting that day. It was the first time in several years that we saw each other. Back then I had no idea who she was. We were only friends since our moms were high school friends. Her mom actually pushed my mom into asking out my dad. She was even the bride’s maid at their wedding. So, it was sort of inevitable that in our early years we would be together and know each other and play together time to time.

My memories of my early years are vague. I know why, and I stated before that this is the cause for my lack of trust in people. It is also something that I will never mention here as well. Anyway, I do have faint memories of us playing together. It was always over her house. Not sure why, then again they lived a little far away and I am sure my mom just wanted to get out of the house.

It was when not only my mom became pregnant, but my friend’s mom became pregnant as well which made us no longer see one another. Since they lived sort of far away and my mom being pregnant she did not want to drive down there anymore. Then being busy raising two kids got in the way. It was the same for her as well.

There was a time when I would have dreams. I never mentioned this to anyone, so the internet makes a logical place for whatever reason. Clearly my sense of this sort of thing is a little off. However I am just going to ignore that and continue anyway. The dreams were always about me trying to find my sister. I only have two younger brothers, although one has long enough hair and could look like a sister from the back. At the same time that sister was not someone my brothers knew. She was older than them, yet younger than me. The same thing about my childhood friend, she is a year younger than me.

I doubt that it was from watching so much anime that it was at the point where I wanted the little sister troupe in my life. A part of me hopes that it does not turn out that she is really my sister and we were just separated, since there are a few memories that are hazy that I remember but do not understand why they happened. Anyway I think it was because all that time together in our younger years she felt sort of like a younger sibling. She had no siblings of her own, and neither did I, so it might have been fitting.

Still, after all this time we have not seen each other again. I do not know what will happen, if we will meet again or if we will not. I do not know what I would say to her. I doubt she remembers me anyway. Still, it is odd that I still hold on. Could it be my trust issues that want me to hold onto that one person that I could trust before that cause? I do not know.

Anyway before this gets any weirder I am going to change-up these posts for once and talk about other stuff, even though it still deals with the childhood friend. I think it is safe to say that a majority of the anime I watch are comedy, romance, or harem most in which always seem to bring up the childhood friend. It is only now where I am realizing my only option when it comes to this since almost always revolve around dating said childhood friend. So, I am stopping here from keeping this to be any weirder.



As always if you like what you read feel free to follow. Also although I do not take suggestions for these posts, I do for my others. Thank you. Also no images this time, since I really do not know what to add for this one for images.
