Hey guys, we have here our TOP 10 ANIME OF SUMMER 2019 – WEEK 9.

1. GIVEN – an episode filled with so much emotion and power. It definitely proves that it’s not just your average boys love anime and there’s more to its plot than what its label says.
2. Dr.STONE – Senku and his experiment had been a consistent no. 2 most of our weekly chart. It’s really amazing that it always give us an amazing ride with humor that we can’t resist.
3. Fire Force – the animation is really beautiful and solid, so far Fire Force and Vinland Saga is fighting for best animation of the season. This episode is just pure lit and action-packed.
4. Vinland Saga – effing bloody and insane. Vinlanda Saga treated us to an amazing fight scenes once again and this time, I am simply wanting to know more about that giant man and his relationship with Thors.
5. The Ones Within – it’s great to learn that we really had a decent progress in the story and now, we’re delving deeper into this conspiracy. I simply love how strong our favorite characters are and how unique they are. Well, my best boy Kai will always be my no. 1 though.
6. Skilled Teaser Takagi-san Season 2 – perfect, adorable and romantic. This show is just making us all fall in love without being direct and brutal. It’s so pure.
7. Astra: Lost in Space – Yes, more revelation, more surprises and more mysteries still pop ups that needs to be discover.
8. Granbelm – it’s the first time of this powerful but cute mecha anime of young gorgeous mages battling against each other to fulfill their wish. Yes, this is Fate series with Gundam shenanigans executed with a very solid animation.
9. O Maidens in you Savage Season – oh dear, Nina is on fire and she’s still my favorite girl. Very solid narration and I just couldn’t wait to see the progress of their complicated yet pure romance stories.
10. How Heavy Are the Dumbbell You Lift? – all thanks to BARNOLD SHORTSINATOR! Haha, this anime never fail to surprise us and give us an amazing show no matter how corny its humor is.

HONORABLE MENTIONS:
11. Gorgeous Butterfly: Young Nobunaga – This is a very painful episode and I wish I could comfort Kichou here. Still, the animation and visual were quite solid with so much bishounen running around.
12. Danmachi Season 2 – intense but quite lacking in animation. The story is really good this week and I really felt Mikoto’s pain. If the animation and visuals were done quite good, this could enter the Top 5 I think.
13. Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest – A breath of fresh air, Arifureta is back and it’s really amazing to see Hajime’s encounter with his former friends. Yes, I love sensei so much.
14. If It’s For My Daughter, I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord – Pretty cute episode. Nothing spectacular but cuteness overload and beautiful scenes.
15. The Wasteful Days of High School Girl – Never fail to make me laugh each week. This girls are all funny and definitely, we could all relate to their high school life one way or another.

TOP LEFTOVER SHOWS
1. Demon Slayer – it’s the Hashira that makes us all crave to learn more about the story and what secrets they hide. It even spur so much hatred towards the Wind Pillar though.
2. Carole & Tuesday – Ezekiel song is so badass and total slap of reality to each of us. I can’t wait for the continuation next week.
3. Fruits Basket (2019) – taking a look in the backstory of my favorite girl in the series Saki Hanajima is really painful, and amazing.

Companies and works that supported The King’s Avatar: For the Glory

With all of this, I think this clearly shows the value and place of The King’s Avatar in the donghua industry and community. It is one of the biggest Chinese anime titles that brought donghua to international scene and opened the world of Chinese anime to global community. In my own honest opinion, The King’s Avatar is breaking boundaries here, and as the donghua that opened the path for me to Chinese animation industry, I will always have The King’s Avatar atop my personal list of phenomenal Chinese anime because that’s where its glory resides.

Top 10 Anime of Summer 2019 – Week 7

Hey guys, I have here our Top 10 Anime of Summer 2019 – Week No. 7.

  1. Astra: Lost in Space – first time in no. 1, the anime continue to give us exciting story and plot twist with crazy cliffhanger.
  2. Dr.STONE – this arc is truly exhilarating. Senku’s kind of sorcery is 10 billion times astonishing.
  3. GIVEN – that was kind of a cliche cute episode. It’s feels great to have a glimpse on the softer side of Aki too. And Ritsuka is really turning into an adorable fragile cinnamon roll.
  4. Skilled Teaser Takagi-san II – Well, that was a really refreshing and adorable episode. I couldn’t say anything anymore other than this anime is surely running for top romance anime of the season with so much innocence.
  5. A Certain Scientific Accelerator – Accel’s insane laugh is such a beautiful sound to my ear. I am really enjoying when my favorite esper goes into rampage.
  6. Fire Force – a quite mild rest from the intense episodes from the previous weeks. Nonetheless, we are definitely heading towards a more exciting part of the story soon.
  7. The Ones Within – If there’s anything that I truly enjoy the most in this anime is the Onigasaki and Oshigiri moments. Nonetheless, this is a relaxing episode with a little bit of creepy atmosphere and heavy dosage of passive humor.
  8. To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts – an extremely dramatic episode, Schaal sure is brave and survive this ordeal. A very thought provoking episode.
  9. Vinland Saga – I felt that this anime lose a bit of its magic but the animation, visuals are still aesthetic as ever. However, I am craving to see more improvement in the story than just pure bloody fight scenes. Nonetheless, this episode is solidly animated.
  10. The Case Files of Lord El Melloi II – conspiracy and more, this anime is a real puzzle to follow and quite peculiar at some point. Nonetheless, the rail zeppelin is full of thrill and unexpected turn of events.

Honorable mentions:

  1. Granbelm – an intense episode like no other, filled with jealousy and more. The drama itself makes Granbelm a very interesting story despite the fact that I used to not like this show.
  2. If It’s For My Daughter, I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord – It really is amazing to finally get a glimpse or idea about the show’s world setting and this time, we have a little bit of drama aside from the typical radiant and adorable ambiance of the anime.
  3. O Maidens In Your Savage Season – I am curious and beyond that, I am falling in love with this anime.
  4. Hensuki: Are You Willing to Fall in Love with a Pervert, as Long as She’s a Cutie? – possibly the most satisfying episode of the anime for me, I just love this side-story of the minor characters in the anime.
  5. How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift? – Normal but consistent. A pretty solid episode for me.

Leftover Shows:

  1. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – a continuation of the epic episode that took our breath away. Well, Shinobu finally showed us her special moves which is really beautiful.
  2. Carole & Tuesday – The drama is so intense and that background music while Tuesday is walking in the rain is so painful and beautiful..
  3. Fruits Basket (2019) – I felt like the series lose its magic from its earlier episodes but definitely a consistent one when it comes to quality.

Hey guys! I have here our top 10 anime this week which I truly enjoyed the most to be honest.

Image may contain: one or more people and text

1. Fire Force get the top spot with its intense collision between the 8th division and the 5th division. I am just craving to see more from this shounen anime despite of how cliché it is.

2. GIVEN – Kaji and Haru’s moments is just so cute to watch and we are finally up for the next level drama and Ritsuki found out about Mafuyu’s past and I just want to slap her female classmate at some point because she’s a being a bitch or maybe a concern friend (but still she’s bitchy).

3. A Certain Scientific Accelerator – my favorite esper comes at 3rd place this week and J.C. Staff truly treated us a bloody conflict this week. I just can’t wait to see the DA fully eradicated and this new girls that appeared were kind of bad omen until our Accelerator boy will arrive in the scene.

8. O Maidens In Your Savage Season – cute and fun to watch. This anime surely surprised me in any way possible and it’s kind of normal and unique which makes me craving to see the show every week.

9. Skilled Teaser Takagi-san Season 2 – Oh my Nishikata, you’re so dense or what, but you sure is lucky to have Takagi-san with your side and we are all jealous of you.
