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

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

Because they’re all the same … Continue reading Pseudo Review of Pseudo Harem – A Harem With A Twist!

Netflix Movie Review – Next Gen Is Just Better Big Hero 6

Okay, hear me out. First of all, I have a mixed opinion of Big Hero 6. I liked it a LOT, and Baymax is one of the most adorable characters to come out in recent memory, but the story itself wasn’t that good, in my opinion. It was a pretty typical movie that got carried hard by it’s stellar character design and interesting setting of … Continue reading Netflix Movie Review – Next Gen Is Just Better Big Hero 6

[Review] Rascal Does Not Dream Of Bunny Girl Senpai – Oregairu and Clannad’s Love Child

As somebody who can never pin down what genre I’m a fan of, the one constant that I have noticed about my preference in storytelling is this: I love bittersweet storytelling. In fact, bittersweet anything is my jam. My favorite kind of chocolate is dark chocolate. Lemonade is better than orange juice. Happy endings are for naive optimists, and sad endings are for bitter cynics. … Continue reading [Review] Rascal Does Not Dream Of Bunny Girl Senpai – Oregairu and Clannad’s Love Child

Junji Ito month continues!

[Lazy repost, I’m watching Weathering With You tomorrow so I thought hey, let’s just post a review of a different romantic anime movie you recently saw. Expect the review for Weathering With You by Makoto Shinkai next week!] Well, I guess it’s Chuuni week in this blog, because after watching how terrible chuunis can be in “When Supernatural Battles Become Commonplace”, I decided to remind … Continue reading Chuunibyou: Take on Me Movie Review
