Anime Deals May 2024 Blog Banner

I can guess what you’re thinking when you see the picture I use in this month’s Anime Deals: May 2024 Edition.

What anime is this, you ask?

Well, it’s this season’s anime, Jiisan Baasan Wakagaeru.

At first, I was thinking about using an image from Shinigami Bocchan to Kuro Maid anime since it’s also another anime that is airing this season.

But I decided to go for the image from Jiisan Baasan Wakagaeru instead because it’s a new anime, of course.

While I enjoy watching anime that has been around for a few seasons, I also enjoy watching a new anime just as much.

Of course, Jiisan Baasan Wakagaeru and Shinigami Bocchan to Kuro Maid aren’t the only anime I’m watching this season.

I’ll save my commentary about this season’s anime for a future post.

But for now, let’s have a look at what’s in store for you in this month’s Anime Deals: May 2024 Edition post.

My Payhip store

I admit that my books tend to be more on the serious side rather than something wholesome and funny such as Jiisan Baasan Wakagaeru anime.

But if you’re someone who is in the mood to read light novels, particularly in the thriller and suspense genre, then you may want to have a look at my books.

Come across any of the books that caught your fancy? Don’t forget to use the coupon code SEKINAMAYUBLOG to get 25% off when you buy any of the books.

Books by Sekina Mayu

I won’t deny it’s hard to wrap yourself around trying to understand what the main characters in Jiisan Baasan Wakagaeru speak because of their thick accents.

Thankfully, most people still speak normal Japanese even if they live in rural areas.

Of course, if you watched Summer Time Rendering anime or read the manga, then you notice that many of them seem to have a thick dialect.

The only exception is Shinpei since he used to live in Tokyo before he came back to the island.

Regardless of the thick accents and the dialects, it’s still important to have a full grasp of the language if you want to communicate with the locals effectively.

And yes, even if you’re only going to Japan for a holiday.

Things will go so much smoother if you can communicate with the locals in their language.

If you’re thinking about learning Japanese, you’re in luck since is currently running a sale where you can get 40% off on their Premium or Premium PLUS subscriptions.
