The Way of The Househusband – Manga Hype!

I know I don’t usually (ever) do manga reviews. However I recently got a batch in (Bungo Stray Dogs, Noragami and the latest Natsume!) so I wanted to share. I mostly picked up manga of shows I wanted another season of, but nothing was announced. Like a little manga tantrum. You don’t wanna tell me...

The Legend of Black Heaven and The Power of Midlife Crisis

  Genre : Science Fiction, music, wish fulfillment, parody Episodes: 13 Studio: AIC, A.P.P.P.   Oji, I mean Gabriel, is not having fun!

Dr. Stone Episode 19 – Tsukasa the Beloved

On Fridays I watch Dr. Stone and Fire Force so this Friday was just chalk full of Fire and Fury! I’m not sure if it’s a weird combo. I feel like not that many people are watching both of these even if they do have a lot of elements in common. I went off on...

Top 5 Anime to Watch When You Have a Cold

You may think that Canada is the land of maple syrup and apologies but it’s not. Well it is, sorry. However, it’s also the land of colds! At the very least Quebec is. The constant humidity mixed with some of the fastest and most radical temperature variations year round means that if you go anywhere...

We Fear What We Know? Do Our Regional Fears Influence Anime?

I was going to write this as part of my Halloween post series. The idea was simple enough, see if there is a significant difference between common fears based on location and then try to make a correlation with what we see in anime. However, as I started to research the post, it sort of...
