Kidnapping 305: Higehiro

Being an adult is hard sometimes, droning even. We by our very nature get caught up in the day-to-day cycle of waking, working, resting, just to do it all over again. I live in the United States, a country that is at best, a dysfunctional society. Typically speaking, if two adults meet for the firstContinue reading “Kidnapping 305: Higehiro”

The Wonderful War Tag Addition that is Eighty-Six

Out of the Spring 2021 lineup, I can only think of one series that auto got a green light for a season 2. A super popular light novel turns manga and anime adaption Eighty-Six.

I drink. Or I should say, I drink a lot. Sticking with my Kentucky roots I’m a bourbon guy. Splashed with filtered water or on the rocks, I can down a handle in four or so days. That of course is not a brag, alcoholism is a very real dependency that brings hardships to millionsContinue reading “Nagata Kabi’s My Alcoholic Escape from Reality is an inspirational gut punch that will resonate for years to come.”

Demon Slayer: Mugen Train

It was around 2009 when I first recall getting into the medium of anime. It was Bleach, specifically Rukia that turned my curiosity into a hobby that would last over a decade.
