ANOTHER year has passed! Yasashii sekai… is now a ripe old age of THREE!!! Awwww! I would have never imagined to get this far!! I feel like this year has gone by very quickly. I feel a bit apologetic as I have been busier this year resulting in fewer posts. I hope you guys still find it entertaining and enjoy spending a few moments of your time here. *cross fingers*
Now what are the key highlights in the last 12 months? Let’s just quickly run through a few memorable stories from the last 12 months…
Let’s start with the mangas!!
This manga series seriously brings up a mixed bag of feelings. It’s good at times and sucks in some chapters too. On the whole, it’s still an amazing piece of work with almost real like characters. Oh and best of all, it’s an adult woman with ANOTHER adult woman! Bring these on!!!
FINALLY Ushio realises her feelings for Sumi!! BUT OMG this manga is going at one-tenth of the pace of a snail’s! I’ve almost forgotten where we’re up to! *pause* Actually…I have forgotten -_-” *SIGH* Pick up the speed please!!
Now onto the animes!!!
Loved the gang although I did feel season 2 lacked the power to keep my attention and the music wasn’t as good. Nevertheless, I still think Mio and the gang (admittedly I have a soft spot for Mio) are heaps cool! Love the hoodie, Mio!! *wink*
So Ra no Wo To
I felt like this was the K-ON! gang but in another time and world!! hahaha Can you guys spot the parody pic up above?? hehehe Story wise I felt like it lacked a bit of excitement but it was pleasant to watch. Art was wow too!!
Oooh la la… *wasn’t me look* Umm…go to Google images and do a search to find out what the big hoo haa is about. I should give the visual novel a go…anyone know whether I can get a Mac friendly version?
Highschool of the Dead
Scantily dressed and well endowed girls carrying guns and kicking arse…Oh! There are guys and some zombies around too! hahaha I didn’t expect this one to be so entertaining and despite the ecchi-ness I recall that there was some real depth in seeing the gang survive the zombies breakout. I’m looking forward to the OVA!
Great art!! And of course Tenshi and her ma po tofu!! HAHAHA OOOOOH maybe I’ll make some this weekend!!! YUM!!
Psychic Detective Yakumo
I really enjoyed watching this paranormal detective show. The stories were moving and the soundtrack is just AMAZING!!! Must give this a go!! I bought the OST. ^_^
I’m not usually a huge fan of watching TV shows but this year was an exception!!
Rizzoli & Isles
A kick arse detective TV show with a super cool headstrong detective and a smarty pants elegant looking medical examiner!! LOVE this! And they’re coming back for a season 2! OH YEAH!!
The Real L Word
This was entertaining to some degree (I preferred some stories over others) but some were a BIT too much…I don’t regret watching it though!! hahaha My favourite couples: Stamie & Tracy and Nikki & Jill and Mikey & Raquel!!
This is just drama but is like the Real L Word but with a heavy layer of dark themes shrouding it…drugs…lots of alcohol and a hidden past. It’s a quality drama with nice to watch characters but I didn’t like the heaviness of this drama. Not really my thing.
However, the best of all in this category for me must be…
***Alicia and Kalinda from The Good Wife***
Trust me!! This is good!! It’s a legal drama show. Here’s a clip of their scenes in the first episode.
Hope you guys have enjoyed your time at Yasashii sekai…!!!! Thank you everyone for your support!!!

Just when I thought the story was slowing down a tad (episode 9 & 10) and that yuri was almost non-existent even when I have my yuri goggles to the max, out pops episode 11!! Who would have thought a Roman would be an excuse for some yuri fanservice!?! HAHAHAHAHA
Lessons learnt from episode 11:
- When it seems like you’ve been trapped, nailed down to the floor, what do you do?? You grab your opponent’s breast!! Even a trained Roman spy/soldier would suddenly be shy and dash back to grab the covers. hehehehe But then again, depending on who the person is, they might take it as a green light…
- To confirm that a person really cannot comprehend what you are saying, talk dirty to them. hahaha Kanata’s expression is priceless!!! HAHAHA
When I was first watching this episode, I was busy frolicking online while waiting for it to load in another window. It soon started playing but I figured I’ll just let it keep going for a bit until they start talking and then I’ll switch back and start watching…BUT…after a little while, I thought the site had been hijacked and I was downloading a naughty video!?!! O_O x 999999999
This is what I heard…how can you blame me!?!
This was a hilarious episode!?! No real development in story or characters but hey! It was pretty funny!!~ I loooooove Noel!!! So smart and yet always so sleepy!!! hahahaha Oh and she has dazzling grey (or do you call it white) hair?! Like Shizuma’s!! hahahaha
So pat on the back for Kanata!!! She managed to complete the mission!!!
The mission to confirm maintenance, to the HQ command line, for high-level emergency situations!!!
WOAH!! TONGUE TWISTER!! hahaha A bit of a silly episode!!
I held back watching this episode for a while as I was told it’s a tear-jerker…I didn’t cry but this episode did bring us into Filicia’s past…and it’s a traumatic one. I was completely taken away by the art (once again) but in particular the melancholic and lonesome guitar in the background!! >_< Definitely need to look out for it when the OST is out. *note*
BUT, luckily the episode wasn’t all sad!! hehehe The whole gang thought Filicia was haunted by her own past but the reality was…she was traumatised by…
HAHAHAHAHAHA I love how Rio get’s played around Filicia’s little pinky!!! *BEAM* Finally, what better than a massive group hug!?! I couldn’t help but label who the picture reminds me of…*chuckle*
Gosh, I’m not sure how I can do so much catching up!! I think I will have to do one post for like 3 episodes!!!! O_O *YAWN*
WOW!!! We have time travelled to the world of old-fashion mob gangsters!!! It’s cosplay time!!! ^_^ hahaha Well KIND of!! The SoRa no Woto team gangs up with the store lady to get rid of some REAL gangsters. Something like that!! I was too busy taking screen shots!!! Pretty cool!! Oh and I like how Filicia looks quite “different” here. Kind of daaaaaangerous…!!! :P
The little side story on Yumina and Mishio is sad but sweet. Quite touching really! The little girl is so cute with her braids!!!! AWWWWWW!!!~
Finally Kanata is just plain kawaii!!! She reminds me of Yui but with a tad more grounded!!! hahaha
I’d tell them that dolpins are very scary animals that eat people.
O_O UH HUH!!! Yeah sure, girl!! Nice try!!!
I’m going to move to episode 7 shortly but I need to watch it at the right time – for example – not night time!!! I’ve been warned by Sapphire Onee-chan that it’s a tear jerker!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
This episode was pretty damn funny in my eyes!!! hahaha The gang starts off as is they’re on a mission – looking gakkoi and all but OBVIOUSLY it’s just a practice!! Aaaaah!! I loved how Filicia managed to slip in afternoon tea into the episode!! Suddenly it made me think of Marimite and Strawberry Panic!! HAHAHAHA Now back to the post Nakayo!!!
This bit was hilarious!!! HAHAHAHA Love Kureha!!! AND NOEL!!! SO CUTE!! Noel reminds me of some character…one of few words as well…but my memory is failing…anyone care to help??
Now I know this is a bit far fetched but am I the only person that thought of Mai-Otome when watching this episode!?!? Look at the similarities!! hahahaha I must admit that they’ve swapped kick-ass Otomes for good natured young girls who look like they can’t really hurt a fly.
I know I’ve already got way too many pictures but the ones below were just un-missable!! hahaha Kanata!!! She looks like someone’s dangled a piece of chocolate in front of her!!! hahahaha And the sunset!!! WOW!!! But best of all, they managed to throw in an ONSEN when they’re supposed to be next to no man’s land?!?! *ROLLS EYES* At least the producers had us in mind!! hahahaha Loving So Ra No Wo To so far!!
I really liked episode 4!! The ending was so pretty and a little breathtaking! It’s amazing how just a little development in the story can give me that overwhelming flutter of emotions!! hahaha I mean, Kanata simply just managed to play the trumpet!! LOL But I guess she did come a long way!! :P I think it’s just the art, character design and music. The whole anime seems to carry this delicate aura to it. I like it!! ^_^
Then back to my view of the anime with my yuri-magnifying goggles on (at MAX btw!! hahaha), I’m really enjoying watching what I see as the shadows of Shizuru and Natsuki!! Hahaha Rio and Filicia!! Filicia even has a bit of the “ara!” accent in her voice!! hahaha Hmm…maybe I’ve cranked up those goggles just a BIT too much!!!
Oh and as for Noel and Kanata!! TOOO CUTE!!!!! ^_^ LOVE IT!!!
