  2. Uchuu Senkan Yamato is innovative in many aspects. Pacing can sometimes be slow with it, but I enjoyed first season and looking forward to second and third ones. The only definite masterpiece for me in 1974 . 1. Alps no Shoujo Heidi アルプスの少女ハイジ [1974-I] Nippon Animation (Dropped 3/52) Tags: Historical, Iyashikei Drama, Slice of Life After becoming an orphan, Heidi is forced to live with her grandfather Öhi, who lives in the Alps.

Muumin (1972) ムーミン [1972-I] Mushi Production (Dropped 3/52) Tags: Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Slice of Life A remake of the 1969-70 Moomin series.

  5. Ali Baba to 40-hiki no Touzoku is a memorable video with full translation, yet still not a masterpiece for me 1. Chingou Muchabee 珍豪ムチャ兵衛 [1971-II] Tatsunoko Production (Dropped 3/51) Tags: Adventure, Comedy A goofy comedy series with various stories featuring the same set of characters. Series is about a samurai warrior son who is dreaming of returning to castle in Edo, goes to more or less modern school and wets himself in the mornings, and
  6. There were several reasons for starting: 1. Found myself having free time and wasting it on restarting same RPGs over and over 2. I watched most of TV series in the genres that I liked, but usually skipped OVAs and such 3. Don't like keeping lists like vndb or mal, but keep forgetting about titles that I watched a decade ago and earlier 4. I'm asked sometimes about favorite anime, and it usually takes a lot of time to make a list 5. Sometimes I hear names of favorite titles that I recognize - titles from the genres that I don't usually watch, so I wanted to sample at least several ep
  7. There aren't masterpieces inside 1970 anime for me, but among scores of 6 I'd choose one that has a full English translation, and thus Cleopatra . 1. Attack No.1 アタックNo.1 [1970-I] Tokyo Movie Shinsha (Dropped 3/104) Tags: Shoujo Drama, Sports Kozue is a middleschool girl and enthusiastic volleyball player. Her dream is to play in the Japanese national volleyball team. During the series she makes it from the school district league up to the Japanese volleyba
  8. Since I don't like to make separate posts for small things , here are principles that anime list is based on - no anime for kids, no hentai, no anime with episodes under 10 minutes, no OVA that are recaps of series episodes or with length under 30 minutes, no boys love, no non-Japanese language anime. As for anime of the 1960s, Taiyou no Ouji: Horus no Daibouken is the only masterpiece for me in this period. 1. Tetsuwan Atom Astro Boy 鉄腕アトム [1961-I] Mushi Production (Dropped 4/193)

  10. It's becoming a tradition, but there's again just one candidate that fits to run for game of the month and wins by default - Unless Terminalia 1. Ai Kiss 3 アイキス3 [220325] Giga Arimori Gakuen is an art school . Two years have passed since enrollment and relations with different girls around.

  11. The good news that there is still a release that qualifies to run for the game of the month - RE:D Cherish . The bad news that it's again the only one that fits the criteria for me. 1. HEAVEN BURNS RED ヘブンバーンズレッド [220210] Key 1 The setting of this game is girls being in several military units. 31A, 31B, 31C, 31D, 31E, 31F, and 31X, each with their very own motto and motivation, which all serve as humanity's last hope against "Cancer", an interstellar force which is laying siege on humanity. Bleak future aside, Heaven Burns Red tasks players with the role of fighti
  12. Nothing unusual, sadly as I don't favor jrpgs aside from Trails series. Expeditions: Rome keeps me fascinated for last couple weeks. Modded Fallout 4 and Witcher 3 are stopped midway and await their turn. Atom:Trudograd is installed yet needs some inspiration for it. After first satisfyingly modded game might glance at Oblivion (for the story as never finished) and Skyrim. Cyberpunk 2077 still lacks mods in my opinion, so checking once in a year the state of mods for it.
  13. Just one game qualifies to run for game of the month and it becomes winner by default - Hentai Prison 1. Shiori no Kotoha - Dark Reflections - シオリノコトハ - Dark Reflections - [220118] CyberStep, Inc. At the end of a deep forest, there was a large library with European-style architecture.

  14. Despite all the looks I still find as many as ten games to be great. And still 50 openings to enjoy Visual Novel Openings 2021 . Since I prioritize chunige , my choice for the year is Waga Himegimi ni Eikan o . As for plans, hardly anything has changed except that I'm first going for Sakura, Moyu. -As the Night's, Reincarnation- , but so far only recorded common route over last three months, so useless to plan further. Will definitely get more active when I finish all the postponed RPGs , six titles accumulated so far. My list of masterpieces in 2021: Buddy Mi

  21. I'd rather nominate an absolutely incomplete title Ryuusei World Actor: Badge & Dagger than choose from several moege-like games. 1. Toshishita Kanojo 年下彼女 [210625] Azarashi Soft 1 "When I grow up, I'm going to marry you, Onii-chan!" This kind of promise is the least likely to be kept in the world. At least, the protagonist, Yunagimoto Yuusuke, believed as much when he thought back on the distant memory of that promise.

  24. Genpei Ryouran Emaki -Gikei- and Waga Himegimi ni Eikan o are both good games, yet the first one has too many downsides this time. 1.
