Best and Worst Anime of 2015~!

Hey Guys~!

Around this time last year, I shared my favorite and least favorite anime I saw in 2014. Well, now it's time for the 2015 edition. Mini disclaimer, not everything on this list came out in 2015, these are just the shows I watched this year. The order they are listed in is not how I would rank them. Also I may love/hate something and you can have the opposite opinion, please no fighting in the comments So let's start~~!

We're going to start with my least favorite anime so we can end this post on a more positive note. Also, I didn't have many anime that I disliked this year, so that's pretty sweet.

30 Day Anime Challenge {Day #18 Favorite Anime Quote}~!

Hey Guys~!

It's time for another entry in the anime challenge. Today I'll be sharing my favorite anime quote. Now there are a lot of anime quotes I like. Also I decided that Fairy Tail is taking a ton of these entries, so the quote won't be from there. So let's start~~!

Picture Day Tips~!

Hey Guys~!

For a lot of things in life, school ID, driver's licences, passports, etc, we need pictures taken. Today I'll be sharing some makeup and fashion tips to help you take the best picture possible. There won't be anything here about angles or lighting, because sometimes you have to take pictures head on. So let's start~~!

Makeup Tip #1: Don't Use Any Foundation or Powder with SPF 20 or Higher

This will cause your face to appear lighter than the rest of your body. It will look like your face doesn't belong to your body, and if you're pale like me you will look like a ghost. Instead, use something with either no SPF or low SPF, that way your face won't reflect light and look too light.

You won't know what I chose to do just waiting here. So let's start~~!

Nail Art Kit~!

Hey Guys~!

For a while I've been posting a lot of nail art tutorials here on my blog. On these tutorials I receive lots of questions about the tools I use and where I get them. Today I thought I'd share with you guys what I keep in my nail art kit. So let's start~~!

The biggest question I get is where I get my nail art brushes from, the answer may surprise you. I actually used cheap paint brushes from the dollar store. They actually work pretty well, and are inexpensive. Before I use them I make sure to rub them with Vaseline to prevent the nail polish from staining them. After I finish with the nail polish, I like to lightly clean the brushes with nail polish remover and cold water.

Next thing I have in my kit is my really old dotting tool. I got this a really long time ago, but you can find them at any beauty store or drugstore. Mines pretty dirty, but it works alright. If you can't find a dotting tool, toothpicks are the next best thing. Are used toothpicks a lot and they're great for more than just the dots. I've used them to make lines, both straight and squiggly ones.

For gradients I really enjoy using makeup sponges. They're really inexpensive, and super easy to find. I don't have a favorite brand to recommend.

I also have a large range of jewels and stickers. I bought this set of jewels on Amazon, they don't sell this specific one anymore, but there's a huge variety online. For applying jewels, I use a cuticle stick or tweezers. Stickers again most often at the drugstore. They're not my favorite things to use, but they really add a lot to the designs. Like the jewels I use a tweezers to apply them.

So that was everything in my nail art kit. I hope you guys enjoyed this and found it helpful. If you have anymore questions leave them in a comment down below, and I'll try to answer as soon as possible. Thank you guys so much for reading and I'll see you at my next post.

Which Anime I Watched in Summer 2015 {Collaboration with Minae}~!

Hey Guys~!

Today I have another anime collaboration with Minae from Minae's Magical Nation. We'll each be sharing five anime we watched this summer. This post will be spoiler free, and each anime will get a mini review. Also not all of these anime are from the 2015 summer season. So let's start~~!

Owari no Seraph / Seraph of the End

Okay, this shouldn't have been a surprise, it's been in two favorites posts this summer. If you missed any of the praise I've given this anime, let me start with the plot. The vampires release a disease all over Japan, killing all the adults. The children that were left were taken into villages where they are forced to give up their blood to the vampires. The main characters, Yuichiro and Mikaela, create a plan for them and their friends to escape, however it goes horribly wrong and only Yuichiro escapes. A few years later, Yuichiro is training to join the Japanese Imperial Demon Army, and through a suspension, ends up in school. There are so many amazing characters in this series, you all know how much I love Shinoa, but honestly there isn't any character I think is pointless, generic, or that I overall dislike. Most vampire anime I've seen I've disliked, for example; Vampire Knight and Rosario + Vampire. This one is very unique in that it's more action focused rather than fan service. If you enjoy vampires, but don't want an anime version of Twilight, this is great for you.

Mirai Nikki / Future Diary

After hearing about this anime for a long time, and being recommended it tons of times, I decided to watch it. The story is about Yukiteru Amano, who is found keeping track of everything in his phone, "diary." One day a god names Deus announces a game to Yukiteru and eleven other players. The game is to find and kill the other diary owners in order to become god. Yuno is a girl in Yukiteru's class, who also has a diary, and vows to protect him in order for him to become god. I am a huge fan of psychological horror anime, and this one is no exception. There are so many twists and turns, your emotions with be all over the place, and you won't know who to trust. My favorite character has to be Uryu Minene, one of the diary owners. She initially doesn't trust anyone, but almost serves as a mentor for Yukiteru. Her character development is interesting to watch, one minute you'll be smiling and the next you just feel bad for her.  I will warn you that there is a good amount of gore and violence in this anime. On Hulu, where I watched it, is the censored version, so if you are interested, but squeamish, you should be fine.

Sword Art Online II

* To be as clear as possible, I only watched the first half of this anime. I tried to watch the second half, but I found it really boring and gave up *

Anyway this is the second season of Sword Art Online, and I liked it significantly more. The first half is about a game called Gun Gale Online, where some of the top players are somehow being killed. Kirito is sent in to investigate the game and there he meets Sinon. I've talked about how much I love Sinon in other anime posts, and honestly, the reason why I love this anime so much is because of Sinon. She struggles with anxiety and panic attacks, and I found her to be handled perfectly. It was written realistically and the acting made it realistic. If you actually like Sword Art, you will enjoy this. And if you're like me, and you didn't like the first season, try the second one out. 

The Fruit of Grisaia

I began this anime at the end of the summer, and I haven't finished it yet. My friend introduced me to this series and I so far really enjoy it. The story is about the students of Mihama Academy, five girls. One day a new student arrives, Kazami Yuiji, and I can't really say anything about him without spoiling the entire story. There are three seasons, I'm on the first one. I will say that there is some overly unnecessary fan service, but for me, the characters outshine the panty shots. Each of the girls have their own back story and personality, and I don't have a distinct favorite yet. I do enjoy this anime, but I can't fully recommend it till I finish it. 


My friend recommended this to me a while ago. Like a year ago. And now I finally watched it.

Another is about a class that is haunted by spirit and until the spirit is gone, the students and families of the students are in danger. If I explain anything else, I may spoil it, and I wouldn't want to for anyone interested. As I said earlier, I enjoy psychological horror. However I found the gore, even though it was censored, to be too much. The death scenes are over the top, which is good for creating a sense of urgency, but I just found them distracting from the plot and the characters. I felt that the story itself didn't matter because the writers and animators clearly spent more time on the death scenes. You knew when they were coming and it personally distracted me. The opening is one of my favorites, but it also doesn't sound like it fits the anime. Overall I thought it was okay, I've seen better and the gore was a bit much for me. 

I hope you all enjoyed today's post~! In the comments below, tell me which anime you have seen this summer / if you have seen any of the anime I talked about, let me know what you thought of them. I just realized this week was a lot of anime posts, and I'm sorry if that doesn't appeal to you. There will be a super cool fashion post coming out sometime next week so stay tuned for that. If you want to check out Minae's post, {click here.} Thank you guys so much for reading and I'll see you at my next post.
