The aromas of rice porridge and dumplings filled the chilly airs of the merchant district of Nixtorm’s capital. Even though other kingdoms were experiencing temperate spring climates, this kingdom always had snow and a wintry environment.

“Good morning, Lord Shuichi!” waved some of the townspeople as I passed by.

I smiled and waved back as I continued my regular rounds in this allying kingdom.

Anime Review: Galilei Donna

Standard

It seems like the sky’s the limit when it comes to creativity for some of these anime originals. Even if the subject references hundreds of things that came before it, the synthesizing of these ideas is what generates a unique story to the library. However, not all original stories are considered “Masterpieces,” or even particularly “Good,” for that matter. How does this series fare in that regard?

I woke up to the dreadful sounds I had feared most. The screams of people. The clanging of metal weapons. The crackling of fire. I slowly took a peek out of the window from my room at the inn.
Muneshige and his Emolga were still fast asleep. Muneshige was still out cold, but Emolga trembled, as if experiencing a nightmare, or worse. Ujitaro, Hotaru, and Mizuna were also trembling within their pokéballs. To sense fear, even in the protection and safety of a pokéball; something terrible must be happening.
