I Ruin My Sleep Schedule Again, This Time With Yuri!

Hello boys and girls. I hope you are having a great day. Healthy, happy and well rested. For my part, I’m still struggling to get that last one under control after that wonderful horrible thing that happened at the convention. What thing you ask? Well I’m so very glad you did ask! It would have...

The Promised Neverland Episode 11 – Zwischenzug

Zwischenzug : An “in between move”, where a player, instead of playing the expected move, first inserts a move which the opponent must answer, before making the expected move..

Yoko Littner – Behind Every Great Man

In case I’ve been too subtle on the point, I really liked Gurren Lagann. It’s not a particularly kind story though. It gets pretty rough with its cast. Of the survivors, few if any are unscathed. One of the prevalent themes of Gurren Lagann seems to be that a life well led is as rich...

Shin Sekai Yori – The Lessons of the Bonobos (Countdown to Halloween)

Genre:  Dystopian, horror, science fiction, romance Episodes: 25 Studio: A-1 Pictures   It seems pretty clear that humans are destined to muck things up.

Steins;Gate 0 – Time Heals All Wounds

Genre: Everything that Irina Loves Episodes:23 Studio: White Fox It’s amazing how quickly something can seep into your normal. You repeat the same actions under the same circumstances a few times and just like that, it’s a ritual. Comforting and familiar. You miss it when it’s not around. Before you can even notice, it’s a little...

The Torment of Being Nameless in Time of Eve

I guess some of you may have noticed but I have a weakness for tragic characters that can accept their fate gracefully or fight against it until the last second. Once in a very long while, you can find those that do both. One of the most frequent searches on my blog is for the...
