Winter 2019 Week 1 – A Battle of Hearts, Minds and Psychic Powers

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

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.

Monthly Mongoose Manga: October 2018

Spooktober won’t be getting in the way of my fluff! Then again though, the first two manga I read this month involve murder and/or ghosts, so I’d say I’m still in the spirit of the season! Tasogare Otome x Amnesia Seikyou Private Academy, built on the intrigue of traditional occult myths, bears a dark past—for 60 years, it has been haunted by a ghost known … Continue reading Monthly Mongoose Manga: October 2018

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

Kyon’s Choice And Why I Think It Doomed Them All

I just watched The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, and while I want to talk about the rest of the movie, I REALLY want to talk about this part of the movie more than anything else. So it comes without asking that there will be SPOILERS for this movie, so beware. . . . . . . . . . . . . . Okay, if … Continue reading Kyon’s Choice And Why I Think It Doomed Them All

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.
