The Completely Not Made Up History Of Anime Rainbow Vomit

So a few years ago I was watching KonoSuba and having a right old marvellous time at it, when Aqua, having had a few too many (girl after my own heart that one), had to duck into an alley and spew forth a glorious vibrant rainbow of too much fun. That’s when I realized that...

5 Things That Seem Way More Important to Anime Characters Than to Me

I just liked that gif I know a lot of it comes from culture clash and some are just old tropes, but anime characters sure get excited about some weird things sometimes. After so many years of watching Anime they don’t really register any more but still, I sometimes think it would be so weird...

Top 5 Things Not To Say To an Anime Boy

I don’t often do response posts on purpose. Usually a scheduling quirk just happens to make it so that something I wrote a month ago gets published on the same day as a similar post. It’s bound to happen with so many great minds in such a confined space. This time however, I am shamelessly...
