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

Since this is literally in the middle of an ongoing show, this will be a spoilerrific post. You can check out my relatively spoiler-free review of the first act here to see if you’re down for the rest. With that said, let’s get down and dirty with Act II of the stellar Arcane. Happy Progress Day! Since you couldn’t see my live reactions of “HOLY … Continue reading A Review Of Arcane From Someone Who Doesn’t Play League of Legends – Act II

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!

[Review] The Fleeting Beauty of Art in “Look Back” – A Oneshot by Tatsuki Fujimoto

Hey all, been a while since I wrote here, but I just couldn’t not talk about this, even if briefly. Off the bat, this is one of the best oneshots I’ve ever read. 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

Pseudo Review of Pseudo Harem – A Harem With A Twist!

Hey, it’s been a hot minute, but with the way 2020 is, me being self aware about hiatuses have practically become a part of this blog’s identity. In any case, I’m still reading tons of manga, constantly putting off Stein;s Gate, and now, I want to talk about one harem manga where every girl in the harem is best girl. Because they’re all the same … Continue reading Pseudo Review of Pseudo Harem – A Harem With A Twist!

Trigger Warning: There will be discussion of heavy topics such as self-harm, depression, child abuse and the usual uncomfortable topics that have to be brought up when mental health is discussed. Please be warned. I’ve talked about mental health at GREAT length before on this blog. My Doki Doki Psychology Club post is probably my most researched article on this blog, and I was very … Continue reading Asuperu Kanojo: A Bittersweet Manga About A Girl With Asperger’s Syndrome

In Defense Of Anime And Manga Piracy

With the recent crackdown on Kissanime, and possibly other sites, I wanted to put my thoughts on piracy out there as somebody from a country with almost no legal channels to watch anime easily. Full disclosure, Kissanime sucks and I hate it, because better piracy sites exist that aren’t as greedy. If and when I can support something, I always do. However, the truth of … Continue reading In Defense Of Anime And Manga Piracy
