[Review] Goodbye Eri – The Fujimoto Oneshot That Lies To You (Sort Of)

After the incredible Look Back (which I reviewed a few months ago) Fujimoto is back with another one-shot, and I’m gonna be honest guys, this might just be recency bias, but I think this is my favorite of all his works so far. Now that I’m done needlessly hyping up something any sane person should be hyped for, it’s time to take a look at … Continue reading [Review] Goodbye Eri – The Fujimoto Oneshot That Lies To You (Sort Of)

[Spoiler Review] Finally, Spider-Man: No Way Home Really Makes You FEEL Like Spider-Man

Yes, that was a dunkey reference. First Impressions This is the best Holland Spider-Man movie by a LONG shot, it’s not even close if I am being totally honest.

Spectacular.Let’s get it out of … Continue reading [Spoiler Review] Finally, Spider-Man: No Way Home Really Makes You FEEL Like Spider-Man

[Movie Essay] The Intimacy of Encanto

[Minor spoilers for Encanto] Encanto is the latest animated feature from the NOT-Pixar side of Disney’s animation team, and it’s got to be one of the most charming and sincere of their films to come out in recent years. The music is catchy yet it develops the characters really well. The visuals are masterfully crafted and don’t act as crutches for the movie’s existence. The … Continue reading [Movie Essay] The Intimacy of Encanto

A Review Of Arcane From Someone Who Doesn’t Play League of Legends – Act I

Full disclosure, I have near-zero knowledge of League. I play Runeterra a lot, but that would be like saying I’m a Warcraft loremaster because I play Hearthstone. In essence, I’m going into this show blind, and will be judging it on its own merits, so if you’re interested in Arcane but not a League fan, or a League fan looking to know if Riot has … Continue reading A Review Of Arcane From Someone Who Doesn’t Play League of Legends – Act I

Boy’s Abyss Review: Exploring The Darker Side of Intimacy

I’ve been reading a lot more manga as of late. While I dip my toes into several titles, I find it hard to follow them weekly. So many manga feels less “episodic” when read in a weekly format. It always feel more like I’m watching half of a complete episode. It’s a rare exception for a manga to grab my attention weekly and leave me … Continue reading Boy’s Abyss Review: Exploring The Darker Side of Intimacy

Manga Eats: Let’s cook a Rice Omelette from Sweetness and Lightning!

I like food, and I like anime. A lot. Ever since I watched shows like Shokugeki and Sweetness & Lightning, I’ve started taking a huge interest in cooking fun dishes instead of the regular old lazy ones I used to make. This is the first time I decided to make a blog post about it. Totally not because this was the first recipe from an … Continue reading Manga Eats: Let’s cook a Rice Omelette from Sweetness and Lightning!

It’s a gorgeously drawn, emotionally resonant and all-around awesome work by the author of Chainsaw Man and Fire Punch, Tatsuki Fujimoto. Works like these are what I hope to see more of … Continue reading [Review] The Fleeting Beauty of Art in “Look Back” – A Oneshot by Tatsuki Fujimoto

Yasuke (2021) Review – A Mediocre Story About A Really Cool Dude

I went into Yasuke a bit weary but excited. I liked the last Netflix Original, DOTA: Blood of the Dragon despite its flaws, and was hoping Yasuke would have at the very least the same level of quality. Unfortunately, instead of the Champloo inspired thrill ride I was hoping for, I instead got a frustratingly mediocre fantasy action show that fails to make use of … Continue reading Yasuke (2021) Review – A Mediocre Story About A Really Cool Dude

DOTA: Dragon’s Blood Review – A Bloody, If Basic, Good Time

Mild Spoilers Ahead It’s been a while since the last Netflix video game adaptation I watched (for reference, Castlevania S3 came out RIGHT before this whole COVID thing kicked off. Also, as I say in every single post ever, It’s been a while since my last post. However, it’s time to stretch the ol’ writing muscles to talk about DOTA: Dragon’s Blood. Overview DOTA: Dragon’s … Continue reading DOTA: Dragon’s Blood Review – A Bloody, If Basic, Good Time
