Watch Pretty Cure (Futari wa Pretty Cure) Episodes Streaming Online (Eps. 1-12)

Friday, October 13th, 2017

Pretty Cure is a long-standing magical girl series!! There have been TONS of different seasons of this, each featuring a team of different Cures, but THIS is the first. Fans refer to this first season by its Japanese title, “Futari wa Pretty Cure” to differentiate it from Pretty Cure as a franchise.

What’s really cool about Pretty Cure is how action-y and martial arts-centered the combat is!! There is a combination of sparkly friendship-based magical beams with very cool kicks and punches! These girls are STRONG!!

It feels very retro to watch this season now (it’s from the mid-00’s), with fuzzy yellow subtitles and everything, which is appealing if you happen to be a retro lover. 😀

Watch Prétear: The New Legend of Snow White Episodes Streaming Online

Monday, October 9th, 2017

This is a REALLY CUTE AND SWEET magical girl series!! It’s pretty retro, with loads of bodacious 90’s outfits you’ll get to see on the characters in their casual clothes, and tons of classic anime tropes (like her step-sister’s GREAT ojousama laugh).

The storyline is SOOOOO sweet – you will get so invested in Himeno and her triumphs as a magical girl, while she struggles at home with her new, rich family. Being surrounded by the handsome dudes who offer her their powers, the Leafe Knights, offers some happy salvation (…when it isn’t adding more drama).

A cool detail unique to this magical girl is that her costume and powers are different depending on which knight she connects with!! They are all REALLY cool!!

Watch Clean Freak! Aoyama-kun Episodes Streaming Online

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

(Tbh I am not a fan of the localized title for this show – I think “Cleanliness Boy! Aoyama-kun” is way better! The Japanese title, for those searching for it, is “Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun”~)

This is a comedic sports anime about a mysophobic character, and the incredibly weird characters all around him. Although it’s mostly jokey, I do appreciate that they spend some conversation in the first episode to make it clear that his fixation is a highly inhibiting disability, and how difficult it is that he has to work around it!

Though there is some cool soccer action in this series, there are all kinds of other hijinks going on, and sometimes it seems that Aoyama-kun isn’t even the central character, only showing up and doing something amazing when it’s important, lol!

Also enjoy the super retro thowback-style credits sequence LOL.

Cute Pokemon Food & Snacks!

Saturday, September 30th, 2017

Do you remember being little and having a bamillion choices of fruit snacks and stuff, and you HAD to get them in your favorite cartoon character shapes??  That’s what these Pokemon snacks and things remind me of, lol!

These have the added bonus of being imported Japanese food, so you KNOW that they are packaged cutely and are a fun novelty to eat!

FURUTA POKEMON Jelly

These are convenient for putting in a bento-style lunch –
they are individually-packaged little servings of jelly,
for spreading on sandwiches or anything else appropriate in your lunch.
There is a different cute Pokemon on each one!

You know, I’m not totally sure what these are, but maybe you guys can tell me?
There are a WHOLE BUNCH of individually-packaged servings of “rice sprinkles”
that you get here, decorated sort of like Pokemon cards.
I don’t know if it is flavoring for your rice?  But it seems to be another convenient,
single-serving thing to put in your bento. :3

This is a whole kit for making your own milk + white chocolate Pokeballs,
