Playtech-Asia Picks - Volume 1
Every avid anime fan faces one constant problem and that is the feeling of emptiness and deflation once our favourite show has wrapped up. It is not unhappiness with the ending of a narrative, necessarily, but unhappiness that the narrative was ending.
For some, this is when we start obsessing every detail about this experience from buying the merchandise to reading and researching about news regarding this franchise. For others, this is when the cycle starts all over again and that is the hunt for a new one worthy to watch, but which one?
Being Anime fans ourselves, the admins at Playtech-Asia understands perfectly what you Anime fans are going through and so we came up with a few titles worthy of your time. These are more relaxing titles that could either help ease you along until your next BIG find or it could actually be that title that you will be binging on over and over.
For this volume, we have chosen relaxing and laid-back themed animes to review. These titles are certainly not the usual action-packed ones that most of you may have been used to but they are in NO WAY boring. Nonetheless, they are certainly titles perfect to unwind at the end of the day.
We truly hope this list will satisfy your cravings for a while....until the next one comes along :P

Yama No Susume (Encouragement of Climb)

Playtech-Asia Rates: 4/5

 
Another slice-of-life anime that surrounds Aoi and Hinata who partake in mountaineering activities. Aoi who adored mountains and was passionate about climbing was left being afraid of heights after an accident at the playground. She turned to indoor hobbies to keep her occupied until she runs into Hinata, an old friend from her climbing days.
Hinata’s high spirits and impulsiveness pushes Aoi towards climbing again. Aoi who was reluctant at first soon finds herself reminiscing her childhood memories with Hinata. Her return to her past hobby brought her out of her shell allowing her to gain close friends, take on new challenges and finding the encouragement to climb.

K-On!

Playtech-Asia Rates: 4/5

 
A series that follows the story of four high school girls as they manoeuvre school,  growing up and the adventures they have along the way. Yui who had just started high school, wanted to find something to start her new school life. Coincidentally, The Light Music Club was looking for a new member to play the guitar to keep their club from shutting down. Yui decides to learn the guitar and be a part of the band. Together the girls began their high school journey.
Although, the series revolves around the girls and their music club, most of it involves the club’s after school activities rather than them playing music making it a very down-to-earth type of anime. If you are a fan of music and slice-of-life anime, then this is for you!
