Anime Characters that Only Work on Paper

I have been watching an anime recently and thinking to myself, this would be great if it weren’t for the characters… Le sigh… That’s not exactly a flaw that’s easy to sweep under the rug. It reminded me of Demon Slayer. Not that the animes have anything in common. However, if I remember well, most...

Conspiracy Theory! Long Haired Anime Girls Get The Guy!

So maybe I haven’t left my house in over a month…Maybe it’s doing things to my brain and I’m latching onto any random little thing for intellectual entertainment. That could be the case. I’m just human after all. But it’s totally not the case for this post! This one is solid! And based on like...

The Art of the Helpless Antagonist

A while ago I came across this little piece of fan art I absolutely love! It’s great right. It may speak to some dark twisted nature deep in me, but Danganronpa, Magical Girl Raising Project and Madoka also happen to be 3 of my favorite franchises. I’m probably the only person in the world who...

Top 5 Supporting Anime Characters That Should Get Their Own Series

I once did a top 5 directors post where I forgot like 6 of my top 5 directors. I have a feeling that’s about to happen again. Considering I’m a fan of supporting or even minor characters, I usually have a dozen characters I want to know more about. Let’s just get this out of...

It really goes for my tastes in fiction in general. And it seems instinctive. If I have an early liking on a minor character no one pays attention to, 9...

However, through researching a few posts (I know!) I managed to go through a large amount of shorter reviews on sites such as MAL and AniList. One very common statement is that characters...

Bungo Stray Dogs and A Night on The Galactic Express

I’ve been meaning to write about the real-life authors that serve as namesakes for the Bungo Stray Dog characters for some time now and I will. I’m not quite sure how to tackle it yet. There’s a lot of material and fun little tidbits and Easter eggs I want to share. It’s a lot of...

Why Bakugo Isn’t a Mary Sue

This week will be a slight departure from my usual character studies. We’re not only going to take a look at Bakugo but at his cofounding and frustrating character and the creative process behind it. I hope you enjoy the post! What makes a good, engaging, character? It’s a riddle that’s kept authors guessing since...

Kyoya Ootori – Ouran’s Eternal Third Son

If you’ve been following along with my character studies for a while, you may know that I choose generally hapless characters. People that just can’t seem to catch a break – or at least not the break I feel they deserve. I have featured a gallery of unfortunate misfits and put upon suckers. So why...
