Hinomaru Sumo – An Open Weight Challenge

Genre: Sports!, comedy, school, drama Episodes: 24 Studio: GONZO   People think sumo is all about girth. The biggest guy wins! And as usual, people are all wrong.

Boogiepop and Shania and Irina ep 10 – Straw Man

Irina: A straw man can mean a few things. Either it’s a a person regarded as having no substance or integrity, or it could be an intentionally misrepresented proposition that is set up because it is easier to defeat than an opponent’s real argument. Scarecrow was neither if you ask me.


Boogiepop and Shania and Irina ep 6 – Lonely Hearts

Shania from Quotable Creations (https://quotablecreations.com/about/) and I have not yet given up on this show, although from what I’ve seen i my weekly round up post, interest has cooled off a bit on this one.  That’s O.K. though because Shania and I are here to let you know what you’re missing.

Tsurune Episode 13 – Bullseye

Your senses dull and you walk around in...


Tsurune Episode 11 – Little Earthquakes

Genre: Drama; Sports; School Studio: Kyoto Animation Am I the only one who was a huge fan of Tori Amos when they were a kid. I really use to play her music non stop. I should see what she’s done lately. I was always particularly drawn by the way she manage to inject this pretty and...


School Club Blues

I’m a rule loving, convention abiding, consistency seeking individual (exciting right!?!) and as such Japanese high schools have often been inherently attractive to me.
