Anime Blog 108: Now and Then, Here and There,_Here_and_There

Now and Then, Here and There is a 13 episode shonen(?) anime.

The show follows Shu as he gets taken to an alien world after protecting a strange girl named Lalaru. Lalaru has a special pendant that houses a vast amount of water that she can control. This makes her valuable to the other world because it's a desolate mechanized wasteland with no water. On board the ship of his captors, Shu is forced to become a child soldier along with a number of children kidnapped from villages. He meets a girl named Sara who was kidnapped from America because she looked like Lalaru.

There are a lot of dark elements in this show including war, slavery, and rape. It's a sad story and a number of people die in the show, including children.
I can't remember my reasoning for wanting to watch the show, I just know that I probably won't watch it again. Not because it was bad, it was actually done very well IMO, but it just made me far too sad and bad things happened to the characters I liked. It does have a semi-happy ending though.

So, art.

I felt this was an appropriate picture for this show
Far left Pic: Shu and Lalaru
Middle pic: Shu
Right Center Pic: Sara

Pros and Cons:


  • Very detailed storyline
  • Great characters
  • Short
  • Violent
  • Sad
So that's it for this time. This is a show I would honestly recommend watching at least once. 
Thanks for reading! Until next time!

Anime Blog 107: Natsuyasumi

WARNING! YAOI/HENTAI!!!!! (you've been warned)

Natsuyasumi is a 3 episode yaoi ova series that is graphic in nature.

For those of you who follow my blog...remember the Boku no Pico entry? This show is essentially the same thing just with only 2 boys and only 1 of them looks like a girl.

A boy named Yuu is down by the river and meets Natsuki (who he thinks is a girl). Sexual acts ensue and lo and behold! Natsuki is a boy!!! dun dun duh!!!!!! shocker....

There's the story for you. It may be censored but it's very graphic. So if this is your'll enjoy it.

I honestly don't have much to say about it...I only watched it because it was on aarinfantasy...and it was a number of years ago. But...


Natsuki and Yuu

Pros and cons:


  • Yaoi...just cause it's always a pro
  • Total smut
  • Shota (in this case...I wasn't feeling it)
  • Far too similar to Boku no Pico for my tastes
There you go! Thanks for reading! Until next time!
