Spring 2019 Anime Impressions post here.
1. Fruits Basket (2019)
Episodes watched: 7/?
The 2001 adaptation of Fruits Basket was one of my favourite anime in my childhood. I completed the manga several years ago, and I was so excited for this adaptation. I’ve put it on hold, but I know that I will continue it once the events go further into the deeper and “darker” sides of the story.
As a child, I looked up to Tohru. I wanted to be kind like her. Now that I am 22 years old, my opinion of Tohru has changed. This may sound harsh, but I don’t like how she pretends that everything is fine, when things are not. It feels dishonest and frankly, fake to me. I don’t like how Yuki, Kyo and her other friends constantly protect her. I think that while we can certainly count on our friends, we should be more independent. This is why I’ve put Fruits Basket on hold…
2. Kimetsu no Yaiba
Episodes watched: 12/26
I’ll be continuing this one in the Summer 2019 season. I still think that Tanjiro is an inspiring character (Read this post if you want more information). Nezuko is so adorable.
3. Carole and Tuesday
Episodes watched: 12/24
I’ll be continuing this show into the Summer season. The art took a while to get used to, but I fell in love with the music from the start. The song Carole and Tuesday picked in episode 12 moved me…
4. Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3 Part 2
Episodes watched: 10/10
Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 2 was more focused on titan action, and it was pretty intense to watch. The end of it was on learning the history and there were some interesting reveals. I really enjoyed the intense moments of this season!
5. Dororo (Continuing from last season)
Episodes watched: 13/24
I used to really enjoy Dororo, but now I’ve put it on hold. The beginning was interesting and then it became repetitive. The story-telling is good, so I will most likely go back to it one day. I hear the ending is amazing, so that’s motivating to hear.
6. The Rising of the Shield Hero (Continuing from last season)
Episodes watched: 25/25
I’ve blogged about Shield Hero and you can read my closing thoughts here.

I totally understand how hiding your feelings can feel fake and dishonest, and being protected from that all of the time can make it that much more difficult for someone to grow up and acknowledge their feelings. Yet, sometimes when the emotional state of mind is so fragile, the best way to just survive one day to the next is to fake it. There’s this saying, fake it ’til you make it. Sometimes it’s much easier to pretend everything is okay because one day things will be okay; could be a long time away, but it does happen. I know I’ve dealt with that a lot, especially recently (probably why I relate to her so much at the moment). The bad has just been compiling, but allowing myself to just ignore all of the very negative and terrible feelings inside of me, especially the loneliness that I’m dealing with, is the only thing that is holding me together enough to keep moving forward. I dunno if that makes sense.
The ending for Dororo is definitely amazing. The last four episodes alone were so well-done and intense.
The second part of AOT S2 was super brilliant!! I feel like I’ve been waiting for this sort of intense action since season 1 haha.

Yes, that makes sense to me. Thank you for your explanation. I appreciate it a lot! ❤
I really should get back to finishing Dororo! I love intense episodes so much.
Me too! Intense actions are my favourite, and I feel satisfied with S3 P2. I can't wait for the final season!!
