We could all use a little sunshine!

You might not believe this but when I started this blog I swore I would answer each and every tag post I got. That lasted about a year and then completely snowballed out of control. Those tags add up real fast! At one point I just couldn’t keep up, not to mention that I would...

Fire Force 2 Episode 5 – Firestorm

I don’t know how it’s been were you guys are but in my neck of the woods we’ve been having thunderstorms all week. Calm discreet little thunderstorms, nothing to get to worked up about.

My Top 6 Anime Sceneries

A little while ago…actually I have no clue when this will actually publish so maybe some months ago… I watched A Whisker Away and I was completely charmed by the beautiful views of the city that were present throughout the movie.

Fire Force 2 Episode 4 – Day of The Living Ash

This weeks episode was quite reminiscent of a zombie series wasn’t t. In many ways, Fire Force does take on a lot of the classic zombie tropes with only a bit of tweaking. Except for all those deep religious undertones. Those are vampire tropes! It’s actually kind of cool how a modern action anime manages...

Re:Zero 2 episode 3 – Sanctuary

I really like the word “Sanctuary”. I think it just sounds nice. I have this weird thing where I randomly like words sometimes. My favourite in English at the moment is clockwork. Great word! This is an even weirder start to a post than my usual offerings. Sorry about that Crow, seems you’re in for...
