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!
(Hinamatsuri just ended their manga run a while ago. Here’s a post of me talking about my favorite character, Anzu.) I’m sure all of you who follow me know about my love for Anzu at this point. She started out as just an annoying side character/rival and quickly grew to be the focus of the best character arc in the anime! Today, I’ll be talking … Continue reading [Analysis] Anzu’s Journey from Rival to Street Rat to Best Girl
Isn’t it weird how so many romcoms end on the confession? If we’re lucky,we might even get a *gasp* time skip to show them with a happy family. What is it with the obsession of mangakas with the chase part of romance but borderline disinterest in developing things PAST the confession? Today, let’s talk about that. Man, I wish I had a consistent schedule like … Continue reading The Immaturity Of Romance Anime
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
Shallow Dives, I don’t know who you are, but I am sold on this tag idea and have dragged me out of my hiatus for a bit. No, I am NOT waiting to be tagged. Apologies for breaking the rules, lol. Light Novel titles being the way they are may be understandable, but that doesn’t make it any less ridiculous. Before we get into clickbaiting … Continue reading Making Anime Titles Absurdly Long Shouldn’t Be Hard, But I Have Trouble Anyway – In Another World!
I am a rather huge, although recent, fan of hip hop music. While most people correlate their reasons for being interested in hip hop to be their childhoods, the lyrics, or just being plain catchy, I attribute my interest in the genre (like most of my interests in life) to anime. Now, when I ask the question in the title, I don’t mean anime that … Continue reading Friday Funsies: Why Does Hip Hop Pair Perfectly With Anime?
I am currently delirious with flu and bedridden, so it’s a short post. Hilariously, this meant that my brother watching anime in the same room has forced me to catch up with a bunch of shows I’ve missed. One that caught my eye was the Life of Saiki K. Now, I didn’t watch this from the start. In fact, I woke up in the middle … Continue reading Sick in Bed Impressions: The Disastrous Life of Saiki K
[I’m busy writing a rather long article for this week, so here are some manga recommendations I made a long time ago on this blog]. It has been a rough two weeks. [Future Gab note: this is somehow still true.] I don’t wanna talk more about the stuff that kept me away from you guys any longer, so I’m just gonna jump right into the manga I’ve … Continue reading Manga Mondays – My Brother, The Shut-in, Bonnouji and Spirit Circle
Start calling me The Luminous Iceberg, because I’m about to sink some ships today. [Remastered for my new readers and old readers alike, Future Lumi Comments in Bold.] ProZD made a hilarious video parodying the shipping fandom of every series that has ever existed, and it got me thinking: Wow, can’t buds just be buds these days? I love the friendship between Kirishima and Bakugo, … Continue reading Friday Funsies: Platonic Friendships, Anyone? [Remastered?]
Anime and advertising go hand in hand in the country of Japan. Unlike the West, animation has been fully embraced as a medium not only for movies and TV, but as legitimate ways to market your brand to the public. This has led to a lot of funny, heartwarming and downright ridiculous commercials being made for the purpose of selling you some cup noodles or … Continue reading Friday Funsies: The Best Of Anime Commercials
