Yuri on Ice “Flight” Blog Tour
An individual takes flight when there is a goal, a dream, or an ambition that he or she wants to achieve. However, for this blog tour, we are going to look at “flight” in different lenses: the underdog’s dream, the possibilities that Yuri on Ice allows viewers to think about, and also the dangers of greed and ignorance that can influence one’s dream.

I don’t typically watch seasonal anime. Waiting for new episodes on a weekly basis frustrates me. I’m a show marathoner, so I prefer waiting for all episodes to be released before watching a show in one go. Exceptions include ONE PIECE (my #1 favourite series), of course, because I’d probably be in a nursing home by the time it finally ends. (*≧▽≦)ﾉｼ)) Another reason why I don’t like watching seasonal anime is the overwhelming hype among fans around the airing period. As a viewer and as a blogger, I try to avoid exposing myself too much to other fans’ opinions as much as possible, especially while a show is still airing. I like forming my own impressions and opinions, which can be difficult when you’re bombarded by hype in all directions.

I think that the second season of the anime Kuroshitsuji (黒執事 / Black Butler) based on the manga series by Toboso Yana (枢 やな) is the most hated anime season among fans of the manga. That’s what I observed, at least. Why? Because it completely veers off from the manga’s plot. Rather than a faithful adaptation, it’s more like spin-off; a completely original story separate from the manga.

During the spring, I had this phase where I only watched anime with hot guys. As a result, I wrote some posts about bishounen like “My Love Affair With Reverse Harem Series”, “More Hakkenden Bishounen, Please!” and “Ogling Hot Demons in Makai Ouji”.
Continuing on this theme of hot guys, I want to talk about another bishounen-filled series titled Karneval (カーニヴァル) by Mikanagi Touya (御巫桃也). The anime is only 13-episodes long, so you don’t have to invest too much time watching it. It seems that the manga is still ongoing, but I haven’t read it yet. Perhaps someday.

In a previous post, I shared with you “My Love Affair With Reverse Harem Series”. In today’s post, I’m going to extend that love affair to any series that has hot, hot, HOT guys! Bishounen alert, people!! It’s raining men, Hallelujah!!!
After watching the bishounen-filled Hakkenden, I wanted more. No, I craved more. More HOT GUYS, please!!! And so I searched and I searched and I searched like a desperate woman—ahem—and then I finally came across Makai Ouji.
