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

Mild Spoilers Ahead It’s been a while since the last Netflix video game adaptation I watched (for reference, Castlevania S3 came out RIGHT before this whole COVID thing kicked off. Also, as I say in every single post ever, It’s been a while since my last post. However, it’s time to stretch the ol’ writing muscles to talk about DOTA: Dragon’s Blood. Overview DOTA: Dragon’s … Continue reading DOTA: Dragon’s Blood Review – A Bloody, If Basic, Good Time

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

Beastars and Stylish Racism In Animation

That’s a hell of a title, huh? Beastars is a fantastic anime, and I’m sure I’m months late to talking about how amazing it is compared to everybody else, so I’ll keep the opinion on the show itself short. Please note that as I talk about this topic, it’s with knowledge of only the anime, so maybe the manga is different. Beastars is nothing new … Continue reading Beastars and Stylish Racism In Animation

[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

Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! – First Impressions

It’s time for me to admit something, I really don’t watch anime seasonally. I don’t have an excuse or anything, I just happen to not have any time for watching stuff. Except Eizouken, which has been a treat! One of the few times I decide to binge anime is for two reasons: I’m sick, or I find it hilarious and can’t stop watching because it’s … Continue reading Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! – First Impressions

Spooktober: Lost Pokemon Episodes

Okay, so the dailies were legitimately fun to do. I liked having something new to read then sharing my thoughts on it. However, it’s REALLY hard to do it when stuff gets real busy at work. Confession time, I usually write during downtime over here. There wasn’t a lot of downtime last Friday as I spent most of it building tables and chairs for new … Continue reading Spooktober: Lost Pokemon Episodes
