Fights, Love and Illness: Fruits Basket (2019) Episode 8 & 9 Review

Man, am I glad to come back to Fruits Basket after a short break! It really does make everything about the show even better. Everything becomes more enjoyable. And that's without me knowing that the ninth episode was featuring my absolute favourite - Hatsuharu. Ahh, what a treat! I do, however, realise that I was an idiot and forgot to write an episode review for the eighth episode. So, let me just quickly cover my thoughts on that before we dive into the ninth episode.

Spring 2019: Am I still watching?

We are currently halfway through this season and I'm really surprised about the quality this time around. Usually, seasons are filled with quite a few mediocre shows, but Spring 2019 really does seem like a top season.

My Spring Vacation 2019 Anime Wrap-Up

Working as an ESL teacher at a university in China... you don't really get much time off. Work is constantly there. So, once I learned about the fact that I was going to get an entire week off with no teaching and hardly any students to deal with, it's safe to say I was quite happy. During this spring break, I've managed to somehow fit time in for eleven different shows and I have thoughts for all of them...

The Anime I Never Get Bored Of

Nowadays, for me personally, it doesn't happen often, but sometimes I just love to re-watch a show. I think it brings back so many memories. Not only that, but I think once you watch a show again after a few years, you can look at it from a different perspective. That being said, there are a few shows that I prefer to watch over others. These are the shows that I enjoy every single time I watch them. Without fail.
