Greetings everyone, I’m back from my trip to Hong Kong and Japan. I spent the two weeks visiting family, hiking the mountains, sight-seeing the city, experiencing the culture, eating all different kinds of cuisine, and shopping for my favourite goods that can’t be found in Canada (or is hard to come by). Even though I was only gone for two weeks, having to re-adjust my schedule was definitely not fun and took a lot of time to fix. Read more…

As in most seasons, winter of 2012 has given us a good variety of anime to check out. For comedy I’ve been enjoying Kill Me Baby, and I’ve gotten my slice-of-life fix through Natsume Yuujinchou Shi. But most of all, I’ve been quite pleased with the mystery and horror of Another, which has done an excellent job with not only its atmosphere, but its plot as well. Essentially every scene of this series has fulfilled specific purposes, presenting more pieces of the puzzles and delving deeper into ominous tones and motifs. For this post, I’d like to focus on how the characters have been presented over the course of the series so far, and how Another has managed to effectively alter viewer perception of them without actually changing their core personalities.

Note that there will be spoilers for the first five episodes in this post! Don’t read on if you haven’t finished episode five yet. This is definitely not a series you want to be spoiled for, as the story relies heavily on clever plot twists.
