Busou Shinki is a product line of armored action figures manufactured by Konami Digital Entertainment. The first product was released in Japan somewhere in 2006. The products themselves are designed by many popular Japanese artists, including Shimada Humikane who is well-known as the creator of Mecha Musume. Many product models were released since its first released since 2006. Several video games about Busou Shinki were also released since 2007 following the popularity of the product itself. That is the short preview about Busou Shinki.
Busou Shinki TV Anime was aired from October 5, 2012 to December 21, 2012. The total number of episode is 12. In addition, there is 1 OVA released later in June 26, 2013 serves as the prologue and epilogue of the TV Anime. I doubt this anime was successful due to the weak rating. However, my opinion about this anime remains positive. The anime managed to capture my interest due to its storyline.
Another anime produced by Silver Link. The title in short, Watamote. This anime really has a very long title. Even until write this post, I still can’t quite remember the full title. This anime was aired from July 9, 2013 to September 24, 2013 with 12 total episode. We also got an OVA later released in October 22, 2014.
The story focuses on one character only, Kuroki Tomoko. The story starts when Tomoko enter high school. It focuses on Tomoko’s daily activity, mostly about how difficult she tries to make a change in her life as a high school girl. It’s not a happy. In fact, it feels kinda sad.

However, that is actually the main jokes in this anime. It’s a comedy anime after all. Most of the time, you won’t be disappointed with the story. Continue reading
Non Non Biyori is an anime about daily life (or slice of life). The anime takes place in a Asahigaoka. There are 4 main characters in the anime and of them are females. The TV anime was aired from October 8, 2013 to December 24, 2013 with 12 total number of episode. It also has 1 additional episode on OVA which was released at July 23, 2014.
My impression about the story is very peaceful but also very entertaining. The 4 main characters attend the same school and same class but all of them are actually on different grades. It might sounds weird for you but that is something you might find on remote locations in Japan. Continue reading
