Treasure Tropes : Red Oni, Blue Oni

I’m not sure when I started having this fascination with colours. It’s not like I wear any. But at some point, I started to really notice them in all things and particularly in cinema and anime. I do know that I’ve been fascinated with tropes since I was small. I would see archetypes come up...

Is Binge Eating the New Nose Bleed

I don’t mean that literally. Although it would be hilarious to have a character immediately wolf down everything is sight whenever they find someone attractive! What I mean is, has it replaced the latter as the anime trope standard? It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a good nose bleed gag. I remember the...
