Winter 2019 Is Gonna Be The Season Of Romcom (And Mob Psycho 100)

Since I ended up only watching Zombieland Saga and Rascal Does Not Dream Of An Absurdly Long And Literal Title last season, I will only pick three shows to talk about weekly (or bi-weekly) here on my blog, then talk about the other shows when I get around to it. Continue reading Winter 2019 Is Gonna Be The Season Of Romcom (And Mob Psycho 100)

Trigger … Continue reading A Lazy List of My 3 Favorite Christmas Episodes

The KyoAni Formula (And Why It Works)

Kyoto Animation is an industry giant, and for very good reason. Every single show that they make in a year is looked forward to by millions of anime fans, and even their shows with the most mediocre of writing are salvaged by the ungodly amounts of eye candy put into every episode.

However, I did notice something on my recent binge of KyoAni shows, and that’s the fact that they all start almost the exact same way. Today, we’ll be breaking down that formula! Continue reading The KyoAni Formula (And Why It Works)

A Warm Light in the Cold Darkness: Sangatsu no Lion S1 Review

[Repost, some very bad things happened to my personal life I need to handle first. Wish me good luck, guys :(] Imagine yourself in a quiet riverside, with snow falling down like rain and winds of biting cold. You are warming your hands by a huge campfire, all alone in the cold, and yet you’re snug and comfortable. Despite being surrounded by harsh and unforgiving … Continue reading A Warm Light in the Cold Darkness: Sangatsu no Lion S1 Review

The Yin and Yang of Yuri Couples

So, has anybody else noticed a LOT of yuri couples tend to be a blonde and a brunette? I asked that to myself, so I ended up going on a long train of thought again and ended up with this post about Taoism in Japanese girls’ love manga. The Yin and Yang aspect comes from the usual trope in these stories that firmly believes in … Continue reading The Yin and Yang of Yuri Couples

Gatekeeping in Anime

[Repost, mainly because I’ve wanted to bring attention to my older posts from when I had fewer followers.] I am not one of those people who believe the anime industry is dying. Some people do, and they are welcome to that opinion, but anime is reaching more and more people every year, and I think it will only get better. However, we aren’t growing as … Continue reading Gatekeeping in Anime

Kaoru Mori’s Emma Is A Beautiful Slice Of History

I’ve been reading a lot of romance manga lately, and one of the most highly recommended to me was a historical romance manga by the name of Emma. I was interested in why such a simple love story, one that I have admittedly already seen many times before, can be recommended so highly by so many people. Is Emma really as good as people say? … Continue reading Kaoru Mori’s Emma Is A Beautiful Slice Of History

Bittersweet Yuri Love: Scum’s Wish vs Citrus

Contrary to popular belief, a lot of yuri stories exist for reasons other than fan service. While a lot of them are portrayed as bubbly and sweet, quite a few, either through a misunderstanding of the orientation or just plain smut writing, are played up as “forbidden fruit.” Writing a realistic same sex relationship is certainly difficult if the writers themselves are straight as a … Continue reading Bittersweet Yuri Love: Scum’s Wish vs Citrus

Hayami Saori’s Phenomenal Rant As Hatoko – The Best Voice Acting In Anime Yet

Without any context, I stumbled upon this scene from “When Supernatural Battles Become Commonplace”, where the character Hatoko, played by Hayami Saori, finally breaks and shows what they truly think of the MC’s chuuni tendencies. I hadn’t even watched the show this scene was from at the time. I just gauged that generic male MC was just a generic asshole chuuni, like usual, and I … Continue reading Hayami Saori’s Phenomenal Rant As Hatoko – The Best Voice Acting In Anime Yet
