An Astronomy Club like No Other! (Ebiten Review)

I think it's time I actually review anime for a change. And for this post, I'm going to review a new yet unusual anime called "Ebiten: Kōritsu Ebisugawa Kōkō Tenmonbu / えびてん 公立海老栖川高校天悶部" (Ebiten: Ebisugawa Public High School Astronomical Club), which is not your ordinary comedy, parody or harem (!) anime.

Ebiten characters. L-R: Hakata Kanamori, Rikei Hiromatsu, Izumiko Todayama, Kyouko Todayama, Itsuki Noya and Hasumi Ooba.
Like a mashup of different songs, Ebiten is a cross of various anime cultures and parodies different shows. Starting out as a manga, it was developed into a net animation and was shown on NicoNico Douga. The story centers on first year student Itsuki Noya, who is heir to the Noya Financial Group, and joins an Astronomy Club (Tenmonbu) which doesn't actually act like a real Astronomy Club at all (well, at first impression).

Oppa Ganda Style! (Sisterakas Review)

Now now. Don't be mad just because I watched a mainstream movie. :)

In all honesty, I am more into comedy-genre shows today, both in Japanese anime and movies / TV. Nothing can compare to the laughter of being relaxed by unpredictable actors and actresses with witty random words that smack up your TV screen or an entire movie theater, or a YouTube player, for that matter. There is a certain magic that comedy-genre movies are able to do that most genres can't do, and that is to help people relax from the hustle of the real world, by making them feel alive again.
