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

[Analysis] Anzu’s Journey from Rival to Street Rat to Best Girl

(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

Why The Best Girl Always Loses [Remastered]

[Man, I sure peaked early, huh? I’ve been doing a lot of these remastered reposts lately. My views on anime and manga have changed a lot since the time I wrote theses posts. With a “mature” perspective, I want to talk about my old points and see if they still hold up for me or not.]As always, Future Lumi in bold. I think I’m always … Continue reading Why The Best Girl Always Loses [Remastered]

[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

Manga Mondays – My Brother, The Shut-in, Bonnouji and Spirit Circle

[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

Eminem’s “When I’m Gone” Is Basically Clannad: After Story

Yes, I am doing this. I stumbled upon this fantastic mashup of Eminem’s “When You’re Gone” and “Dango Daikazoku”, and upon listening, I realized just how eerily SIMILAR the themes of Clannad and Eminem’s song are. I suggest giving it a listen before reading on. I will be tackling this as not a 1:1 comparison with Eminem’s life, but with his life as it is … Continue reading Eminem’s “When I’m Gone” Is Basically Clannad: After Story

Angel Beats Is My Guilty Sadness

Just a quick post talking about the unique situation I have with Angel Beats and how I use it as a stress reliever. Angel Beats is a flawed and rushed show. Many characters were barely give characterization, it relied heavily on a lot of cliches or melodrama, the designs are uninspired, and it tried to be a lot deeper than it was. I should really … Continue reading Angel Beats Is My Guilty Sadness
