If I were to use a phrase to describe the journey of Summer Time Rendering from the perspective of the main character it would be “forget what you see, remember what you forgot”. On first reading it appears the two parts of that statement threads over the same meaning but within that circular logic there is very much a varying impression of subtlety and depth.

Events on small Island that involves a tragedy leads the main character, Shinpei, back to his hometown which he hasn’t visited for two years.

It commences the viewer off from an inquisitive entry and as the mystery deepens, it becomes clear the story isn’t exactly what it appears. A grander terror encapsulates the enigma sourced from the tragedy that led Shinpei back to the Island. Were circumstances planned to draw Shinpei back to the Island or was his arrival that now seeks to disentangle the darkness a fortuitous fate?Continue reading
With each trauma, our perception of the world deforms. From the world we are shown, to the world we see, to the world we want, to the world we experience. Each trauma that scars us in life teaches us about regret, fear, suffering, pain and countless other deep dark emotions. Along with creating a pit of negativity which we often find ourselves sinking in, it also serves as a contrast against the positive moments in life teaching us to appreciate and value such moments.
King of Thorn is about a story of a group of infected individuals chosen via a lottery to undergo cryosleep to wait for the world to develop a cure for the virus killing them. Things go wrong and the individuals find themselves at the mercy of death’s whims. The manner in how King of Thorn introduces the theme of trauma and twist it through the mystery of what went wrong creates a fascinating stage for the story and the characters relevant to it to unravel and reveal themselves in.

So excited for the Spring season this year, there are many anime which I have been looking forward to watching airing this season.
Another exciting line-up of anime for the Winter season of 2013/2014.
Finally we get an official announcement for when the Fairy Tail anime is returning – April 2014. I for one cannot wait, I love the Fairy Tail anime and how it compliments the manga so enjoyably. The Fairy Tail anime achieves not only adapting the manga, but furthering and expanding on the enjoyment and love a Fairy Tail fan has for the series. Along with covering the story it takes the character interactions and gags so much further consequently making you love the characters and story more than you had before after reading the manga =D.
The Fall 2013 season has begun and there are a lot of anime to choose from to watch.
