Top 5 Anime That Were a Waste of a Great Premise

It’s happened to all of us. The heartbreaking experience. You read the synopsis for a show that’s about to air and you think to yourself: “OMG this sounds AMAZING, I can’t wait to watch it!” and then *sad horn music* One way or another, the series manages to completely squander and amazing idea and/or universe. You...

Top 5 Animes I’ve Grown to Appreciate

Let’s start off 2019 with something positive. I’m not too proud to admit that my first impressions can occasionally be a bit, harsh. Not wrong mind you, just possibly fail to take certain things into account. And so, I do occasionally change my mind about shows after a little time has gone by. In this...

Top 5 Otaku Resolutions

I don’t really make new year’s resolutions, I just pick up things as they come along. I do really like the general idea though. There’s something commendable about a society choosing to make self-improvement into a celebrated tradition. It’s sweet if a little silly. I mean you don’t have to wait until January 1st… What...

Top 5 Christmas Gifts I would Want if I Existed in an Anime

Top 5 Badly Rated Anime Which I Loved

If there’s one thing this blogging journey has taught me, is that I’m weirder than I thought. I’m definitely not the “average” MAL user.

Top 5 Anime Where Names Play a Role

Those of you who are regulars on this blog… Oh my… There are people who regularly read my posts… that’s still a little though to wrap my mind around. Sorry I’m back! As I was saying, those of you who’ve read a few of my posts may remember that I have an odd interest in...

Top 5 Things to Know Before You Start an Anime Blog

It probably won’t surprise you to hear that I’m one of those people. You know the type. The people who look at ingredient lists and nutritional values on the back of packages at the grocery store. Wanna know calories by types of booze? I can tell ya! I’m not proud of this but I sort of have...

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…...
