What a GREAT start to the season! These are some very faithful adaptations and I’m excited to talk about them! Kaguya-sama: Love Is War – Episode 1 Review First episode is a strong one! I was concerned about A-1 being at the helm for this one since they’ve been stretching themselves thin as of late, as proven by Wotakoi’s animation troubles in some episodes, but … Continue reading Winter 2019 Week 1 – A Battle of Hearts, Minds and Psychic Powers
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.

Episode 9 The Saki Episode finally deals with what I wanted the series to get more into, which is showing how … Continue reading Zombieland Saga Ep. 9-12 Review – The Fear of Failure (FINAL)
Last year, as I was looking at the criticisms thrown at the anime adaptation of Watamote by its critics, I noticed that a common one was that Tomoko, our main character, never grows as a person or changes by the end of the story, and therefore, she’s a bad character. Unbiased I say to you, and not just because I have a writeup detailing exactly … Continue reading Do Characters Really Need “Growth” To Be Good Characters?
The Game Awards 2018 just concluded today, and there’s a lot for us to unpack, but first, I want to get the new game announcements out of the way. At least, the ones that I am personally excited for.
