My Anime/Manga of 2019

It’s been an eventful year. My health hasn’t been the best for the past 3 or 4 months, but hopefully 2020 will be a great year. So now, here goes my list of 2019!

(And yeah, because I had a very bad flu and some sinus problems, I’m only releasing it now. My list is also really short this year because I’ve been studying like crazy….)

Episode 7 is about Miss Spider. To be honest, I was a bit surprised that the story broke from the usual ‘beat the monster’ formula for a happy ending. It blurs the line of how different people and monsters really are. Very modern.

Episode 8 is the usual ‘sacrifice a bride’ kind of deal. Hyakkimaru got his smell back. I just have to get this out that Dororo is very, very brave to latch onto a hugeass sky serpent like that. Seriously, this kid, are you still normal?

Episode 9 cover Dororo’s mother. Dororo’s backstory is so heartbreaking. It’s even more sad once I realized that Dororo was raised as a boy because her parents didn’t want her to be mistreated and taken into prostitution. I love how the red spider lilies are used to contrast the monochrome characters. Great use of colors.

Hyakkimaru and Dororo grew a bit closer and their interactions are getting more and more interesting to watch.

Overall, this anime is keeping it up.
