Yasuke (2021) Review – A Mediocre Story About A Really Cool Dude

I went into Yasuke a bit weary but excited. I liked the last Netflix Original, DOTA: Blood of the Dragon despite its flaws, and was hoping Yasuke would have at the very least the same level of quality. Unfortunately, instead of the Champloo inspired thrill ride I was hoping for, I instead got a frustratingly mediocre fantasy action show that fails to make use of … Continue reading Yasuke (2021) Review – A Mediocre Story About A Really Cool Dude

In Defense Of Anime And Manga Piracy

With the recent crackdown on Kissanime, and possibly other sites, I wanted to put my thoughts on piracy out there as somebody from a country with almost no legal channels to watch anime easily. Full disclosure, Kissanime sucks and I hate it, because better piracy sites exist that aren’t as greedy. If and when I can support something, I always do. However, the truth of … Continue reading In Defense Of Anime And Manga Piracy

Netflix Movie Review – Next Gen Is Just Better Big Hero 6

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

Sick in Bed Impressions: The Disastrous Life of Saiki K

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

The Live Action Anime Tier List! (F Tier)

Tier lists are still a big thing, right? Regardless, this is a really fun idea I’ve been toying around with, and I feel like it’s way more interesting than just another bullet list. By putting these in ranks, I hope we can better see why some adaptations work fantastically- While others, not so much. For this list, I’ve curated the most popular adaptations only. I … Continue reading The Live Action Anime Tier List! (F Tier)

Zuko x Jin – The Romance That Could Have Been

I am currently watching Avatar: The Last Airbender for the first time since I was like 12 years old, and only now do I realize how many subtleties and great story elements I missed out on as a child. Yes, as a child, I loved the series for being a fun adventure with a very charming cast of lead characters, but as an adult, I … Continue reading Zuko x Jin – The Romance That Could Have Been
