So, what is this? What this is is a site I decided to make because I’m bored and posting rants in ONE place seems like a missed opportunity to shove my opinions on Japanese cartoons down other people’s throats. Of course, I’m not limiting myself to just anime, I’ll also be talking about movies that I enjoyed (or despised so I can warn people about … Continue reading 3,2,1 Let’s Jam
Remember when I hinted Evangelion was gonna be this week’s Saintly Saturday? I lied super hard, it’s actually this one, because as it turns out, I do not have the time to watch 15 hours worth of everybody desperately trying to get a teenage boy to get into his damn robot. So I thought, hey, instead, let’ s talk about something I HAVE watched, Hellsing … Continue reading Saintly Saturdays: Hellsing Ultimate and The Modern Day Church Militant (Part 1)
Real life has been kicking me in the butt lately, so I haven’t been able to consistently post on this blog, but nevertheless, do not fear! Eventually, as soon as my college stuff has been handled, I’ll be posting a bunch of the stuff I promised I would last week. The Girls Last Tour review should be out by Wednesday EST, Saintly Saturdays will still … Continue reading Things I’ll be posting next week (sorry for the hiatus)
Trying out a scheduled thing to do every week so this blog isn’t barren for weeks at a time, and this is what I decided on. This will go on until Easter, pretty much. And why Saturdays? Because my target audience is likely busy doing Christian things on Sunday, plus I am also busy doing Christian stuff and passing out on Sundays. Yeah, it’s a … Continue reading Saintly Saturdays: Samurai Champloo
Just here to do a quick review of my latest addition to my addiction, the MSP Banpresto Josuke Higashikata. MSP stands for Masters Star Piece, a line that primarily focuses on male shounen characters from anime such as One Piece, Dragonball Z, and of course, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. This guy is gorgeous from just about every angle, both in the figure sense and yes-homo sense. … Continue reading Quick Hauls: Masterpiece Josuke Higashikata and a semi-update for the blog.
I finished Watamote a LONG time ago, and first things first, this is what struck me: Tomoko is a pathetic loner. Not a quirky loner in most other anime, where their flaws actually enhance them, a.k.a. klutz moe characters. Full-on, almost no friends, loser. No harem of love interests like Hachiman, no super skill that makes her special ala Shiro from NGNL, no living in … Continue reading Watamote: How to make a loser protagonist feel like an ACTUAL loser.
So, the Crunchyroll awards ended last night, and I have had a chance to gather my thoughts and my brains splattered all over the floor. For those of you too lazy to google the winners, here they are: Best Opening: “Peace Sign” – Kenshi Yonezu – My Hero Academia Season 2 Best Ending: “Ishukan Communication” – Chorogonzu – Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid Best Film: Your … Continue reading The Importance of Made in Abyss winning Anime of the Year for the Crunchyroll Anime Awards, plus other thoughts on the awards show overall.
Recently, about three weeks ago, I bought a box of built Gunpla model kits off from a guy letting them go, because hey, it was cheap, and I was irresponsible. I wanted a few anime merch on my shelf besides schoolgirls to offset the ratio a bit from JoJo and schoolgirl stuff. And while these were cool and all, I feel like I missed out … Continue reading I built my first ever Gundam and it was a Swedish Robot Schoolgirl.
