Revisiting my view on Anime Gatekeeping

This may be a bit of an odd post. I have written before on the subject of Gatekeeping in the anime community. In very broad terms, I’m one of those people that are in support of anime becoming as popular as possible and I just don’t really see any reason to get down on people...

Haikyuu!!: To the Top ep.20 – Routine

I was googling some Haikyuu stuff. Like where to get volume 4 and just general Haikyuuness and I fell on a link called how did this Haikyuu character die. Then there was another Is this Haikyuu character really dead? And then I noped straight out of there. What the heck man, you can’t go killing...
