This is the first book of a long series written by Robert Jordan. Although The Wheel of Time is considered one of the most important series in fantasy literature, it’s clear that The Eye of the World took inspiration, A LOT, from Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.
Sing "Yesterday" For Me is a drama (seinen) that surprised me. I rarely appreciate a drama about unrequited love. Most of the time it feels forced, and that is why I don't enjoy the genre. However, Sing "Yesterday" For Me felt different. It is refreshing to see an anime that takes itself serious, without recurring to… Continue reading Sing “Yesterday” For Me

Coraline, as it is described by the author during its introduction, tells the story of a little girl called Coraline, not Caroline.Caroline... sorry, Coraline is a kid that is bored. Her parents are always busy, rarely paying any attention to their daughter. Even her breakfasts are bland. One… Continue reading Coraline, by Neil Gaiman

It takes a lot of time to return home, so when he finally arrived, the kids start asking what happened; this… Continue reading Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman
Boogiepop and the Others is a difficult thing to describe. First things first, I need to warn you: the anime is slow. And when I say slow, I really mean it. Its opening might give you the wrong idea of the show, so I advice you to just enjoy the music, but don't judge it… Continue reading The Name’s Boogiepop
After watching the anime Violet Evergarden, I was excited when I saw on Facebook that Konnichiwa Festival brought the movie to Latin American theaters. Of course, as I live just across the border from Juarez, I didn't give a second thought, got my ticket and went to Cinépolis (the biggest and most popular theater in… Continue reading Eternity and the Auto Memory Doll
