A Voice of Dislike Shouldn’t Be Silent

Ueno Naoka in Koe no Katachi, Chapter 61.

With Koe no Katachi ending in Chapter 62, a resolution was made for those affected by the life of the main heroine, Shoko Nishimiya. Everyone found a sense of peace with what they wanted to do because of her. However, some things remained the same in the case of Ueno Naoka, a girl who once strived for the attention of male lead Shoyo Ishida, whose eyes focused solely on Nishimiya. Some of the words she gave Ishida before the end reflect how differences will always be present and you know what, that’s okay.

In the preceding chapter, Ueno talks to Ishida about their goals after high school. The conversation takes an interesting turn when she decides to reveal a secret from their past as elementary school students. She reveals that she and her friends desperately wanted to get away from Ishida after the incident that labeled him as an outcast alongside Nishimiya back in the beginning of the series. Ueno says,

“I think they (Shimada and Hirose) wanted to erase the fact that you were ever friends…and…so did I…I’m sorry, Ishida. I wrote on your desk too.

Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya: Complete Collection – Review


Illya (Illyasviel von Einzbern) is a typical young girl attending Homurabara Academy who just happens to have a slight crush on her brother-in-law. Then, one night, a magic wand called Magical Ruby falls from the sky into her bath and tricks her into signing a contract. At first it was looking like a typical magical show with just Fate characters added to the mix. However, later in the series the action scenes actually got me interested to finish through. When the announcement for second season was announced, I went ahead and read the manga from there and found out there was a deeper storyline and before I knew it I got hooked onto the series so I’m excited for what comes in second season. The series’ storyline after this season does resemble to me of Mahou Sensei Negima’s manga version by Ken Akamatsu, as well as a bit of Madoka Magica’s but rather Fate’s Dark side of their story.

On the surface you have yet another magical girl/comedy/parody of the genera that uses familiar characters from the fate franchise to pull in the audience. At the core you have a clever, interesting. very action packed and some times cynical anime that …continue reading
