Are Problematic Anime “Bad”?

I know, I know, you HATE the word problematic. Everyone does. I get it. It’s a word that’s been way overused and misused and is almost always followed by a rant. There’s not much to love there! And I think that because of that, we have a tendency to disregarding any point that uses the...

A Twist “Outrage” Marketing in Anime?

Do you guys know what outrage marketing is? Just in case, let me try to summarize it. It’s when a company creates an advertising campaign or even a product itself, that they know will be very polarizing to the public, in order to (at least in part) generate outrage in some faction of the customer...

On Negativity in the Anime Community and Blogging

These days it seems most of my anime-related interactions on social media can be divided into 4 general categories. Strangers telling me they are sexually attracted to drawings. Which is fine but you gotta be in the mood for that sort of thing. Strangers and sometimes acquaintances generally proclaiming that so and so anime is...

Is Censored Anime Better than None at All?

The title may sound a bit dramatic there but it’s a serious question. Over the years, there have been numerous outcries in the anime community about censorship. In the past 10 years, I would say. Before that, we international anime fans would take what we could get even if it had huge black rectangles over...

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...

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...
