I mentioned in an earlier post that I would be focusing less on reviews and more on the general state of anime and rants. The anime blogging community has tons of reviews written every day, so there is ample supply of that if it’s your thing.

I want to talk about some of the series that I’m following this season. Of the seven I’m watching, five of them are Slice-of-Life or contain elements of Slice-of-Life:

Greetings Everyone.

I haven’t been writing a lot lately due to the fact that I have been working on Yumestate’s third layout, titled “Midori”, or Green in Japanese. Instead of blogging on anime this time around, I wanted to share a little about the thought process that went into building Yumestate:Midori. Feel free to scroll through the screenshots if developer blogs don’t really interest you or is not your type of thing.

Most of my free time is spent at the computer checking emails, visiting websites, playing games, coding, designing, whatever. While doing all these activities, 90% of the time I have music playing in the background.

Sung by Tsubasa Hanekawa’s voice actress, Horie Yui.

It was only in a span of 2 years that my playlist did a complete overhaul. If you asked me back then what music I listened to, I would have told you artists such as Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Usher, Black Eyed Peas, and so on. I still like listening to American Pop artists, just not as much as I did before.

So why the change? Why listen to anime music now?
