Top 5 Reasons to Read Digital Manga

I am a person who really enjoys physical manga over digital manga. Maybe a bit too much. There’s just something magical about getting my hands on a brand new manga with those beautiful colourful covers. Running my hands along the printed pages and marvelling at them as they line my bookshelves. I think a lot...

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...

How to Ruin an Anime Adaptation

I chose my headers gif as the opposite of ruining an adaptation. Alarm sound and Fog Horn!!! I don’t know anything about adapting a written work for an audio visual medium. I don’t even know anything about writing fiction in the first place. These are really just my opinions and observations because I thought it...

I Accidentally Started Watching A Lot of Yuri Lately

And these are my general, not necessarily insightful thoughts on the subject. I like Yuri. Ok not really a revelation, I’ve always liked Yuri well enough. In fact, I like it just about as much as any other genre but considerably more than classical romance which is a little confusing. However, I also ended up...
