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...

The 5W of Blogging: Where?

Finally, a question I can offer a bit of insight into. Mind you a lot comes up to subjective preference. Where do you blog? First, let’s just push out different forms of media.

The 5Ws of Blogging: What?

And I’m back. As you can potentially imagine, I’m writing all of these in a row. It’s a lot of non anime content for me. I’m finding it surprisingly challenging. So what do we blog about? Yeah…yeah. I know I blog about anime, wise guy! That’s not what I mean and you know it. At...

Dating Sims Are for Lonely Losers and Other Lies

A long time ago, back when I thought visual novel was just a fancy way of saying comic book (I was confusing it with graphic novel it seems), I heard of a mysterious thing called a “dating sim”. I have never played one, or even seen one, but from the name alone I immediately started...

The 5Ws of Blogging: Who?

The first question I chose to tackle in my 5 Ws of blogging series is who. It’s a weird question to apply to blogging. Who is obviously: you. Alrighty then. Post accomplished! Good job everyone, let’s go celebrate.
