Welcome to the alluring anime that has captured the heart of every otaku, Kimi No Na Wa or Your Name. This 1 hour and 30-minute film take you on an emotional ride filled with history, comedy and romance, making you wish you had a love story as cool as this. So how did you guys first meet? lol Any answer apart from switching bodies due to a passing comet will totally become bland after watching this anime.

We start off with your typical high school students Taki and Mitsuha. Taki is your average Tokyo student while Mitsuha is from a mountain town called Itomori. One peculiar day, the two wake up realizing that they’ve been switched into a body of the opposite gender. Taki being the curious adolescence who is now in the body of Mitsuna commits his first offence. OPPAIIIIIIIII.  

Mitsuha who is now in Taki’s body believes that this is a very realistic dream so she tries to live out the day as normally as she could. The country girl gets lost the way to school which was a fantastic start lol. Not only that she forgets her lunch as well. The only good thing was that she was able to hook our boy Taki us with his co-worker. Saying “Take off your skirt” seems to be pretty effective when you have cornered your prey haha. Taki who is now in Mitsuha’s body wrecks up a storm at her school. You can pretty much say that he acted like a delinquent, hit on a few girls kicked a couple of desks over no biggie lol.

Somewhere along the line, they both discover that this wasn’t just a strange dream. THEY REALIZE THAT THEY HAVE ACTUALLY SWITCHED BODIES!!! Having discovered this, they are now able to lay some groundwork for what they are allowed to do. Mitsuha pretty much wastes a lot of money on sweets while Taki pretty much plays with Oppai’s all day long lol.

The visuals are absolutely amazing and you’ll be immersed in the beautiful scenery as the couple takes you on their adventure. The music seems to fit right in making it truly an anime masterpiece of 2016. The plot is somewhat easy to follow but if you’re a fool like me who didn’t watch it properly, be prepared to watch it twice haha. 

After a while, they discover that they were no longer switching bodies. Taki gets paranoid and goes on a wild goose chase after his crush. He goes to Itomori to find out that it has been hit by a comet 3 years ago and that nobody survived……… so what’s going on you may ask and how the hell are they switching bodies then? This goes back to the foreshadow mentioned at the start of the anime!

At the start, we learn about the word Katawaredoki which means twilight. We instantly know that Twilight is an important factor in this movie. If you look into this further, the correct dialect form would be Kawataredoki roughly translates to “who are you at this hour?” This hints that the two lovers will meet the twilight due to a supernatural phenomenon.

Another symbol used was the red thread representing the Shinto God Musubi. This anime convincingly incorporated the red thread of fate into their relationship to symbolize their fated matchmaking and eventually love. Mitsuha being the tiger as we know, gave her braided hair tie to Taki which ultimately connects the two from that moment. You see at the end as Taki went up to search for Mitsuha in the mountains, even though they couldn’t see each other, they were connected by the thread of fate 😉

This anime teaches us an important lesson. One, get yo self a red thread and hook it to your crush lol. Two, love knows no boundaries. Love is capable of transcending distance, time and hardships. We can all learn a lesson from this anime and that’s true love is worth waiting/fighting for. Love takes time and patient to build into something solid and lasting. For all of you single souls out there, don’t give up on love, it is definitely worth the wait 🙂 #SinglePringles

 

Mitsuha Waifu, definitely the cutest in this anime ❤

Welcome to the world of Konosuba, where the traditional Isekai standards are thrown out the window and laughed upon for its normality. Humour, wild cards and sexy girls definitely make this anime ONE OF THE BEST that I’ve ever seen. The perfect combination of music, plot (and did I say hot girls?) all blended into one spectacular anime. Kinda like a delicious fruit smoothie on a hot summers day. SATISFYING.

Let’s start off with your average Isekai death ritual. We’ve got our NEET Kazuma who was walking back from his venture to the game store. With his R18+ game in hand, he saw his attractive boner inducing classmate about to get hit by a car. Being the stereotypical good guy at the wrong time, he decides to jump in and take the blow for her. In the end, the girl lived, the car was fine andddddd he died of an emotional shock. Even his parents laughed at the cause of death lol

In the afterlife, he meets this beautiful goddess named Aqua, who too laughed at his cause of death. Kazuma was given two very interest choices for his good deed. To be reincarnated into the human world once again, or to be reincarnated into an alternate world. He was permitted one wish which was to bring anything with him. A powerful sword, crazy psychic powers, incredible wealth but with a comedic turn of events due to Kazuma being butthurt, he pointed to the goddess and chose her instead. 

Off they go into a fantasy world. You would think that Kazuma is incredibly lucky to have such a hot goddess helping him out but you would be wrong. This goddess is not only physically THICC but mentally THICC in the head as well lol.  With literally 0 intelligence points, she uses her level up points on the only useful skill known to man. That’s right people, a skill that allows her to shoot up a minuscule stream of water from her fan to show off as a party trick. NATURE’S BEAUTY!

Kazuma gains a couple more girls into his harem. The 3rd member goes by the name of Megumin. The Arch Wizard who’s only one love and true desire is to blow shit up with explosion magic. However, after casting one, she becomes completely useless to the point where her teammates literally have to carry her lol. The 4th member is called Darkness. From the name who could probably deduce that she is a masochist who finds it pleasurable to get beaten up physically and mentally. Well tbh no one was expecting that but it sure as hell funny lol

They go many adventures together and by facing various challenges their friendship foster into something truly “unique”. Kazuma is the brains of the herd as you can probably see the others are pretty useless by themselves lol. Their ultimate goal is to defeat the Devil King but to be honest, they didn’t really get anywhere in the first season because due to a series of unfortunate events caused by Aqua. Credits to Aqua in the second season where she became a little more useful in the fights lol. 

If you’re wanting something lighthearted for the shits and gigs then this anime will be able to satisfy your 2am munchies. Do not try to search for any seriousness in the anime because everything they do or say is pretty much a joke. I thoroughly enjoyed the comedic plot as well as the jokes being thrown around. You’ll fall in love with the main characters as they are all “unique” in some way or another. Hopefully, they will announce a season 3 because this anime deserves more episodes 🙂

Megumin Loli Waifu ❤
