I Wrote A Stupid and Now I try To Fix it

I’m probably going to make it worse…orz A few days ago I published a post about, well actually it was a spoof on the concept of coolness and popularity as many of my fellow anime fans claim to not be cool or popular and I relate to that feeling. So I tried to make fun...

The Curious Case of Interspecies reviewers

Just to be straight with all of you, this isn’t going to be a post on Interspecies Reviewers. I have not watched the show. I wanted to but I don’t get FUNimation which it originally started airing on so I gave up. And now I’m no longer sure I want to watch it. And that’s...

Another boring post about feminism and stuff in the anime community…

I’m gonna level with you. I fell down a rabbit hole of watching dudes who seem super angry about “feminism” and how it’s destroying everything good like video games and anime. I feel a little defensive now. It’s my own fault, no one forced me to watch. And to be fair, I have also been...

How going into an anime with preconceived notions or expectations based on other people’s experiences, inevitably affects what we end...

Queerbaiting in Anime?

There sure is a lot of queerbaiting in anime. Well there sure are a lot of accusations of queerbaiting in anime. I’m a little slow on the uptake when in comes to implied romance but I swear at least some of it is all in the viewers heads. I mean Kuroko no Basuke fans went...

Anime Winter 2020 Here I Come!

I’ve been saying this a lot lately but boy did the end of the fall season hit me by surprise. Maybe it’s because I only watch a few shows seasonally so I don’t get a proper sense of time. Or maybe I was just into the series I was watching and wasn’t prepared for them...

2019 – A Year in Search Terms

Discovering what weird and twisted search terms have led to my blog never fails to thrill me. As such, it has become something of a tradition each year, for me to look back on what twisted path people took to discover this blog. If you’re interested in past results here are 2017 and 2018. Unfortunately,...
