Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 14

I hope that this will be the last Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso post that I will keep short. I am getting tired of seeing Kaori in a hospital. For god’s sake, just tell us what’s wrong with her already. Is she dying? I swear I will drop this show instantly.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 14 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.18_[2015.01.23_23.51.26]The girl gets a lot of medical attention and a lot of medication from what I could tell. Is she ill? Does she have cancer? Is one of her organs failing? Is she just diabetic? What the hell is wrong with that girl? She should grow up to become a fine young lady that will eventually end up marrying Kousei. That’s how this story is supposed to go, dammit!

The only good thing about this episode is that Kousei has successfully picked up the pieces. He has overcome a lot recently and has finally stepped back into the world of music. He even decided to move away to attend a music school, which ended up upsetting poor Tsubaki-chan. I hope that she, too, finds true happiness. She’s too adorable to be miserable.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 13

Once again I am keeping a Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso post short again because this episode chocked me up. I have this new-found respect for the protagonist and I dread that the story is about to take a horrible turn.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.03_[2015.01.16_23.33.57]Kousei played his mother’s favourite piece in order to say goodbye to her once and for all. The start may have been a little rough on the ears and even though it wasn’t his time to shine, he stilled played an incredibly beautiful piece that struck everyone and even ended up affecting the final act. Now that’s music for you!

Anyway, Kousei has finally re-entered the musical world by doing this. However, I fear that it might not last long now that Kaori is once again in the hospital because she passed out again. What the hell is wrong with it? Is it a brain tumor? Is it diabetes? Hell, is it aids? What is wrong with her!? Don’t you dare let her die! God, I don’t want to write this post anymore.

The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls

Ah, it would seem that I forget about this one. I remember seeing the very first season and somehow liking it. It was okay and, although I did not see all of it before dropping it, I still think it was pretty amusing before I got bored with it.

The iDOLM@STER Cinderella GirlsThe artwork is still very nice. The characters all look cute and the level of detail is definitely not bad. It was always nice to look at and the characters always managed to find a way to keep me somewhat entertained.

The story is what made me stop watching the first season. It was about a group of girls trying to become idols. At one point it all got extremely predictable and obvious that I just stopped watching because I already knew that I was right about what was going to happen next. I hope that’s not the case with this one.

Can I recommend it? That’s a tough question. If the story is better than definitely yes. I always thought it was a pretty nice show at first. It’s pretty funny at times and it teaches a tiny bit about what it takes to become an idol without them throwing all kinds of girly crap in your face. So yeah, see for yourselves.

Plot Summary: There are many idols with long-established talent agency 346 Production. And now the company is starting a new program, the Cinderella Project!

Girls leading normal lives…

They are chosen to be aspiring idols and see another world for the first time in this Cinderella story. Can they all climb the stairs that lead to the palace?

The magic begins now…

Shounen Hollywood: Holly Stage for 50

I honestly do not understand why this got another season. The ratings where so bad and I also read somewhere that the sales were very disappointing as well. How could this, based on those results, get another season? I do not understand.

Shounen Hollywood Holly Stage for 50The artwork is what pisses me off the most. It is incredibly girly. Basically, all men in that world look gay. They look gay, they sound gay, they often talk and act gay. It is an insult to all men, the obvious superior sex (facts don’t lie).

It’s a story about gay guys looking to get famous in the entertainment industry. That’s pretty much all I got from the first season and I’ll be damned to watch any more of this if I don’t have to.

I am sorry, but I cannot recommend this. Not even to girls. You might get strange ideas (like sticking a finger up our man’s behind during sexual intercourse). Some things just don’t work out.

Plot Summary: The anime will tell an original story set 15 years after the novel’s story.

It takes place at a fictional theater called Hollywood Tokyo in Harajuku, where members of the idol group “Shounen Hollywood” develop their talents with diligent work and studying.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso episode 12

I am forced to keep this episode short. I have too many posts to write to day. But that’s not the real reason why I decided to keep it short. The real reason is because I am truly pissed off at what’s happening to Kaori again.

[HorribleSubs] Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.29_[2015.01.09_22.54.21]So Kousei was dragged into another contest where he would accompany Kaori-chan as her pianist. That is great! Those two are great together and the music that they could make together could end up becoming legendary. Or so I thought. Once again Kaori fell ill and was probably hospitalized again just like last time.

Seriously, what is wrong with her? Is it a tumor? Is it her heart? What the hell is going on!? There has to be a good reason as to why she keeps fainting like that. And to think that Kousei is about to play alone when it’s supposedly a contest for violinists. That’s bad enough, but the blow of finding out that his dream girl is ill again might end up doing a lot more damage.
