It’s Gonna Be A Rough Week Here In The Philippines, I Might Not Be Around Much To Blog

Our country is in a REALLY shitty place. Not gonna lie, I might not be around here for a bit. Not only are we experiencing water shortages, it was also recently announced there would be rotational power interruptions ALONGSIDE the water rotations. Essentially, everyday this summer, there will be 3-6 hours where my village is basically Mad Max where water and electricity are basically non-existent. … Continue reading It’s Gonna Be A Rough Week Here In The Philippines, I Might Not Be Around Much To Blog

I’m Not Dead, Guys

I’m graduating college in a few weeks! So that has kept me really, REALLY busy, and I haven’t watched enough anime to warrant writing a seasonal recap. But, I HAVE been working on a lot of long-ish articles and analysis. I have a post about the presence of trans characters in anime in the next two weeks (with help from a few legit trans people … Continue reading I’m Not Dead, Guys

Taking a Short Break

I’m at the tail-end of my on-the-job training and going through some important shows and manga in my backlog, so this week is gonna be a bit bereft of posts. I MAY still have a post up this Friday, but expect reposts for my usual Wednesday manga reviews. I don’t like taking breaks, but I despise working on blogposts while I’m in a high stress … Continue reading Taking a Short Break

I’ve Reached a 100 Followers! (A Short Reflection and Thank You)

I started this blog 4 months ago a few days before my birthday. I loved watching and reading anime, but I loved discussing it with other people even more, if you can believe it. Writing has always been a passion of mine, but it was only when I started blogging that I really embraced it! Also, I’ve always wanted to share my thoughts to a … Continue reading I’ve Reached a 100 Followers! (A Short Reflection and Thank You)

Spring of May 2018: Hinamatsuri, Wotakoi, My Hero Academia (and plans for this month)

Yep, I’ve only been watching these three things this month. I’ve been so busy with things, catching up with IRL friends before my internship starts, enrolling myself for my final year in college and a lot of other stuff. So, today, we’ll just have a short recap of the three shows that I’ve bothered to watch this month. Also, with OJT starting, I’ve decided to … Continue reading Spring of May 2018: Hinamatsuri, Wotakoi, My Hero Academia (and plans for this month)

I’ve been on a roll lately with my blog posts, but I may plan on posting less frequently from now on (maybe).

I’ve been posting once or twice a day for the past two weeks, mainly because I’ve always had so many thoughts on so many anime related media, and only now was I able to express them on a daily basis. I also have a bunch of monthly series for manga and seasonal anime. However, my concern is am I disallowing some posts I am proud … Continue reading I’ve been on a roll lately with my blog posts, but I may plan on posting less frequently from now on (maybe).

So there’s no confusion, I have changed my name from CarnivorousL to The Luminous Mongoose.

So, a little fun fact about CarnivorousL, is that it’s actually short for Carnivorous Luminous Mongoose. This was a randomly generated username for me back in my Poptropica days, and I just never bothered to use any other online handle since. However, the name CarnivorousL just has a weird ring to it, and honestly, jt just doesn’t flow as well of the tongue. With that … Continue reading So there’s no confusion, I have changed my name from CarnivorousL to The Luminous Mongoose.

Quick Hauls: Masterpiece Josuke Higashikata and a semi-update for the blog.

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.

3,2,1 Let’s Jam

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
