Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury

Words I associate with this series. Squish, tomato, pizza, splat, bumpkin, awkward, yuri, war crimes, child abuse, farm animals. There are few things cherished in the anime world like Gundam. Rather it is the late 70s concept, the rather mid-80s flop to be followed by a rise from the ashes. It is a lot ofContinue reading “Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury”

My Stepmom’s Daughter Is My Ex

If someone says one more thing about a youthful indiscretion I am going to lose my fucking mind. When it comes to anime as a whole I often find myself enjoying stupid romantic comedies more than anything else. I’m not sure why my brain is wired in such a way but when it comes toContinue reading “My Stepmom’s Daughter Is My Ex”

Dragon Age Absolution

Heroes are supposed to be praised and welcomed. They come to protect the common people from evil and harm. Throughout storytelling this has been the case, often a subtle asterisk applied to the term. Batman is a hero but not really, he is a rich narcissistic blowhard vigilante. Oh wait, they all are. America needsContinue reading “Dragon Age Absolution”

I Do Love Vampires: Call Of The Night

Spoilers Apathy is a hell of a thing. When I say that I don’t mean it in the sense of aloof indifference. I am more referring to the complete disinterest in any things. It kind of reminds me of a part from David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest where a psychiatric patient is being interviewed aboutContinue reading “I Do Love Vampires: Call Of The Night”

Winter Supernova: My Dress-Up Darling

Kitagawa-san Kitagawa-san Kitagawa-san Kitagawa-san Kitagawa-san Kitagawa-san Kitagawa-san Kitagawa-san Kitagawa-san Kitagawa-san As we enter the end of the 2022 season there is one thing we all can agree on. The season was full of fan favorites and even though I started my hiatus early on it didn’t shield me from the wave of one fandom inContinue reading “Winter Supernova: My Dress-Up Darling”

Reflecting On Otaku Culture

Recently I read a review about a laid-back, chill anime Super Cub written by AK here. Though I have not personally seen the show, the cute, laid-back girl does pleasant things. Not being my cup of tea doesn’t mean I’m entirely ignorant. One of my good friends is an avid biker and had often sungContinue reading “Reflecting On Otaku Culture”

Comedy Or Horror (both?) Mieruko-chan

Fall 2021 was a pretty stacked season when it came to anime. Netflix came out swinging with Komi, Jobless Reincarnation, and 86 got their second seasons and we can’t leave out World End Harem (I’m going to be real I didn’t and am not going to watch that) so with all of these powerhouse animeContinue reading “Comedy Or Horror (both?) Mieruko-chan”

A Series That Almost Made Me Speechless, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners

Spoilers One of the most underrated things in television media is titles. Almost every episode of a show has one, and often it goes unpublished in the public eye, something brushed under the rug and missed as one binges a series. To the credit of the viewer, it isn’t something that is often paraded, AlwaysContinue reading “A Series That Almost Made Me Speechless, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners”

Lycoris Recoil Was Alright

Spoilers Anime is a fickle thing, and by that, I am referring to the trends. Certain titles strike like hot iron while other, and sometimes brilliant series fall to the wayside. Well, I guess most media is like that. Now I could think of all the shows that got hot, were controversial, and often wereContinue reading “Lycoris Recoil Was Alright”
