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...

Born to Die – Bungo Stray Dogs’ Karma

****I will be discussing characters and events from the fourth episode of Bingo Stray Dogs, season 3. Although I don’t believe this post by spoils anything about the season or the larger plot, it does go over the episode itself in fair detail so if you don’t want to learn what happens, please feel free...

Do you know Hōka Inumuta?

When I called out for help and inspiration on anime characters to write about, Kill la Kill’s Ryuko was one of the top contenders. She doesn’t exactly fit the underrated/underappreciated theme I’m trying to go for. In fact, she’s one of the few characters with her very own TV tropes page I have now wasted an afternoon...

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...

Turning the Tables – Masculinity for Women, by Women and Natsume…

That’s quite the title. I’ve been working hard on my titles and no I still haven’t come up with anything better that Nowlsume. It’s March 12 right now. In a recent Owls chat it was hinted that April’s topic would be masculinity and I hope that wasn’t a joke. I’m not often there so there...

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

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...
