Five ways to watch anime
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began a year ago, consumers have come to streaming services (and weed) to pass the time. But it seems no matter how many streaming services you have, it seems like there is never anything to watch. When you’ve reached a wall when it comes to content keeping your interest, it may be time to think about a fork.
In this case, we recommend anime – a Japanese style of animation that has become mainstream in the United States. Services such as Hulu and Netflix are expanding their range of anime offerings.
And because nothing goes better with weeds than television, we’ve compiled this list of recommendations to complement your anime experience.
Food Wars! (Shokugeki No Soma)
Trunk pairing: AND Kush Breath
Stress check: “A great burden. Definitely gives you the nibbles anyway! It smelled great, tasted really good. Get it, you will enjoy it … just be ready to eat! “
If you love cooking shows, Food Wars is yours! could be your best outing in the anime. You’ll love the colorful close-ups of beautifully animated food with classic kitchen characters and fierce competition.
We recommend OG Kush Breath, a calming hybrid, as you will get hungry after watching this food-themed show. So you can also smoke something that will give you the nibbles.
Genre: Magical girl
Trunk pairing: Strawberry cough
Stress check: “A nice energy boost that didn’t scare me. Very uplifting and cheerfully high. Nothing but a smile. “
Even if you haven’t seen the show, it’s hard to avoid pop culture references about it. Sailor Moon focuses on female heroes fighting together against evil and balancing out as normal students during the day. It’s a healthy, heartwarming show with color palettes that will make you nostalgic for the 1980s. We recommend the euphoric strawberry cough to keep your mood as happy and carefree as the characters on the show.
75 stoner films during quarantine
Genre: Adventure and fantasy
Trunk pairing: Papaya punch
Stress check: “Super happy with a hint of giggles and a body high.”
Black Clover is a story about two orphans who train to be magical knights to become the magnificent wizarding king. Along the way, these characters face difficulties, dungeons, epic battles, and a bit of romance. It’s a heartwarming story about outsiders that, despite the quirkiness of the characters, can only be enjoyed. Pair it with papaya punch, a variety that will make sure you are laughing at all the right parts of the show.
attack on Titan
Trunk pairing: Berry white
Stress check: “First relax, then the mood enhancer kicks in. Perfect in the evening or for any social situation. This strain has personally inspired some of my creative work and deserves some recognition as a legend. “
Attack on Titan (AOT) takes place in a world where people live in walled cities to survive against giant man-eating titans who threaten their very existence. This show is full of drama, with enough twists and turns that you might feel like you’re watching the anime equivalent of Game of Thrones (because you are).
The intensity and madness of AOT require a creative open mind. For this reason, we recommend pairing the show with Berry White, a strain known for promoting creativity.
Genre: Dark imagination
Trunk pairing: harlequin
Stress check: “A high that isn’t too overwhelming, but it’s still there. I feel uplifted, relaxed, but fully functional. “
Tokyo Ghoul is set in what is now Tokyo and revolves around Kaneki, a college student who has turned into a half-human, half-ghoul. The show follows his development, his needs and his struggle for survival. Bloody battles and heartbreak await you in this unique thriller.
To keep up with the different storylines, we recommend pairing this anime with Harlequin, a CBD strain that will help your mind organize and better understand the story.
