Top 5 Types of Anime Characters You Should Never Trust

If there’s one thing anime’s taught me, it’s that the entire world is essentially a den of lies and you should never ever trust anything or anyone! I lead a real fun life. It therefore goes without saying that you shouldn’t trust any anime characters but these 5 archetypes are particularly not to be trusted as...


The Troubled Persona of Naoto Shirogane

***Although I have seen the animation, this will be mostly about the game version of Naoto as I know it better*** Also minor Naoto SPOILERS I guess… I mean it’s pretty obvious but whatever…  Do you guys know Naoto Shirogane? If you haven’t had the pleasure you should really meet. Naoto is just freakin lovely....


The Man Behind the Hand – Tomura Shigaraki

Have you ever stopped to consider how many characters there are in My Hero Academia? A lot, the answer is A LOT! And most of them are given at least a modicum of development. Just enough to make you think they’re more than just set pieces and actually do continue existing once the main characters...


Character Studies and Drunken Anime

Hello everyone. I hope you are all enjoying your holidays. I hope I am as well. It’s very early December at the moment. I think I should be putting up my Christmas tree soon. I’ve decided to deviate from my regularly planned programming today to talk to you about….my regularly planned programming. Or more specifically...


Christmas is for Family – Sachiko Fujinuma (12 days)

Top 5 Good Characters in Bad Animes

Ok so both “good” and “bad” are obviously arbitrary here. I went with my gut! However, as far as I’m concerned, these characters deserved better than the shows they got saddled with. Characters with deep compelling personalities or at least for the potential for it, stuck in lousy narrative where they will languish unappreciated forevermore…...


Nora nashi gami

Have you watched Noragami? You should… It’s good! It’s also pretty complex. It sneaks in a lot of rather heavy themes under the guise of an action anime with some Japanese mythology for flavour. You could almost be fooled into thinking this one was just about running around and looking cool with swords. I wouldn’t...


Do You Like Characters Which Are Relatable or Remarkable?

That post title took me forever to come up with. Yes it did!!! I actually gave up and just used the post outline instead. But I tried for a long time before that. Some of you may remember that I generally prefer character driven narratives to plot driven ones. This means I can enjoy shows...
