Image may contain: one or more people

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 3

Hey guys, since I am posting our Top 10 shows of the week in the Facebook page of Yu Alexius Anime Portal and giving some short commentary, a very short personal one. I guess, I could also just post it here to share my thoughts.

We’re back with our Top 10 Anime of Summer 2019 – Week 3.

1. Given – continues to give us music, drama, comedy altogether in this amazing shounen-ai story.

Given Ep. 3

2. Vinland Saga – glory for the strong, death for the weak. This anime is simply on killing spree and it shows no sign of stopping from bringing amazing fight scenes and interesting story for all of us.

Vinland Saga

3. Astra: Lost in Space – we are now entering a little bit deeper to a bigger conspiracy.

Astra: Lost in Space

4. Fire Force – the quality of animation is definitely a top-notch this season and the story is getting interesting too.

Fire Force

5. O Maidens in your Savage Season – I just love how Mari Okada could always deliver a good writing despite of how obscene the topic could be and this anime is a perfect example how a good written story could make a common plot interesting.

O Maidens In You Savage Season

6. DanMachi Season 2– Finally, we are getting some huge improvement in the story and it’s lit than ever.

Danmachi 2

7. Dr. Stone – a little bit of slow down here from our favourite scientist. However, the quality is always there, I just though the story is on the mode of “the calm before the storm” for a great build up.

Dr.Stone

8. Gorgeous Butterfly: Young Nobunaga – this anime is really pretty and if you think that it’s your typical bishounen series? Just wait!

Young Nobunaga

9. To The Abandoned Sacred Beasts – the drama is quite heavy to carry in this anime and I really enjoyed every ounce of it here.

To The Abandoned Sacred Beasts

10. How Heavy Are the Dumbbell You Lift? – Definitely a fun show you won’t expect based on its title. It’s truly funny and fun to watch especially the educational info they embedded on its story. Now, this is motivating me to work out somehow I think.

How Heavy Are the Dumbbell You Life?

In our honourable mention list, we have the following:

11. BEM – I seriously love the graphics and animation here though it’s quite mediocre in eyes of other people. I also enjoyed how it could easily change the mood from light to dark, and vice versa.

12. The Ones Within (GENOME) – could be this season’s best suspense-thriller anime. The combination of comedy, drama, and a little bit of madness is really perfectly mixed here.

13. Skilled Teaser Takagi-san – I just love how the innocence keep us all interested in it and every second is never wasted as it always made us smile to its cute story.

14. If it’s for my Daughter, I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord – Personally, Latina is really making the show amazing and I wish the rest could catch up to her. Nonetheless, this is a very relaxing and fun anime to watch if you want to unwind.

15. Cop Craft – and here we have one of my personal favourite. This really reminds me of Garo: Vanishing Line and I’d been quite the sucker type when it comes to Urban Fantasy so I am really having high expectation for this. As of now, it’s quite average but the promise is definitely still there.

For the leftover anime, we have the following:

1. Black Clover – After the epic fight between the Wizard King and Leader of the Midnight Sun, who would ever contest with it getting the first spot? I could that this is by far one of the best episodes from the anime series.

Black Clover Episode 93

2. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – the feels is here again and the anime is doing what it has always been good and that it is to let us get to know that even demons have some kind of emotions in them.

3. Fruits Basket (2019) – Damn, the feels and nostalgia is just too much to handle. It feels great to get a glimpse at the backstory of Tohru’s friends as well as her mother tbh.

This ranking is based on many objective factors that we consider, however, if I have to share my personal opinions my top 10 would be as follows:

  1. Given
  2. Fire Force
  3. Astra: Lost in Space
  4. Vinland Saga
  5. Dr. Stone
  6. How Heavy Are the Dumbbell You Life?
  7. Dr. Stone
  8. BEM
  9. O Maidens In Your Savage Season
  10. The Wasteful Days of High School Girl

Saturday Madness and My Exhausted Heart

Hey guys, how are you? I hope everybody is doing good and doesn’t have an insane Saturday like what I am going through today. Haha, so I am back for another rant and I dunno where should I start because I couldn’t simply understand how exhausted my feeling today is, I felt like I’ve been crawling this past few days looking for some motivation to live aside from watching anime and some p0rn (pun intended but could be true at some point).

My thoughts are a little bit messy and not coordinated just like what this post might end up with, so I might seriously ignore a lot of syntax and principles in writing here possibly. As of writing, I found myself listening to some old songs that I used to listen at from my college days just like Superman by Five for Fighting, All Out of Love by Westlife & Delta Goodrem, When She Cries by Restless Heart, and many more. Haha, I felt like a heavy slideshows of my life all this time had flash back before me and my frustrations, failures, and goals that I never achieve.

Work-related stuffs, I felt so dried up and exhausted here though I am lucky enough to be motivated to go to work. Though, lately I felt like everything is like gray and blue with no sparks at all. My professional life is getting dull than ever and the environment of my co-workers isn’t healthy at all. I just want to invisible, a nobody, as the more I interact with people, the more I get disgusted with them. I am quite grateful that I didn’t reach to the point yet where I have to question myself whether I’ll quit or not because I have to acknowledged the fact that it is so fucking hard to look for decent job here in the Philippines and I should consider myself lucky at some point to have a decent job.

Love life? Oh my gosh, I felt no attachment towards anyone else anymore though fragments of past affections could easily infiltrate into my system making me a little bit sentimental. Not just a little, it’s actually terribly sentimental and it is destroying me from within. I don’t want to let anyone inside my heart and core though, I felt like nobody could endure me and my system. So, I’d rather want to built a wall around me than letting someone enter and just mess me up despite of feeling so alone all this time. THough, sometimes I wish I could have some who can help me carry the burden or else I might go seriously insane for real.

Yu Alexius? Hmmm, I am working hard to established it but it’s not that easy. I also have to blame myself for being lazy at some point or being easily distracted but seriously I really don’t know what to do with my life anymore, sometimes I just want to disappear but I’m still thankful for my anime blog as it is one of the things that makes me busy these days that I can forget how mess up my life is in a certain way.

It’s just so hard that no matter how much effort you put in into making your life better, there are so many aspects that you have to consider and I don’t want to be heartless nonchalantly destroying along my way such as connection, friends, family, other people feelings and so on. It’s hard and I just really don’t know what to do anymore. I felt like living is some kind of an addicting madness that we want to escape but we still continue up to the very end.

I just can’t fathom my thoughts today but I think that should be enough to rant here or else, some stalker may know more about me and I will not like that as I’m used to being the stalker rather than the one being stalked. After all, I don’t want people to know more about me. Obviously, the more people know about you, the more you became vulnerable and that sucks big time, isn’t it? Anyway, i wish you all a good hair day today and enjoy your Saturday. Bye!
