Anime and I have changed since AOT S1

Holy crap. Attack on Titan ended its second season this Saturday. A whole four-year span happened between these two seasons. A lot of things have changed for me and the anime world since it ended. Watching this show was like a time machine for me and reminded me of a lot of things. Time that…

My Hero Academia – Solid Emotional Resonance

This anime has a lot of great things attached to it. Great action scenes, a great soundtrack, great characters, and a lot of other elements. Basically, almost everything except an original story. My Hero Academia is far from original. It’s a story that has been told again and again, but then it’s not about originality….

Re:Creators – How meta can one anime get?

I am completely serious about the title. If you don’t believe me, watch the first thirty seconds of the third episode and try to explain what happened to a person that doesn’t watch anime. It’s completely impossible because that is a conversation that requires talking about other anime just to talk about what happens. The…

Failure is important (in anime and life)

If there is something that needs to happen a lot more in anime, it’s shows giving their characters a chance to fail more. I don’t mean that these characters shouldn’t reach their final goal, I mean that they should constantly be met with challenges beyond them along the way. Through these challenges, these characters work…

The upsides to anime blogging

I feel like writing this post has become necessary because of how the other one has just blown up and is still gaining more and more attention each day. You people are crazy and wonderful. Thank you for everything. Before I get into this post, I want to talk about how my mind works, because…

Cowboy Bebop live action adaption thoughts

Well, major news hit again today. Cowboy Bebop as a tv series is being put into production at some point in our near future. Considering this happened after the Ghost in the Shell film adaptation that was just an average science fiction film, who knew this was going to happen? There have been talks about…

Blast from the past – Captain Harlock: Arcadia of my Youth

Origin stories have become incredibly common place these days. Especially since we are currently in the super hero movie bubble. More hero origins are getting explained and are still being placed in the already large cinematic universe, DC is catching up with their latest offering being the origin story of Wonder Woman, Star Wars is…

Old school and new school combined – MHA S2 E10

Just a warning, if you haven’t seen this episode yet, I am about to spoil the whole thing. BEWARE (wiggles fingers dramatically). I know that I am going to be one of many people who gush about this episode and for good reason. This was one of the best episodes of anime that I’ve seen…

My issues with slice of life anime

If you’ve been around my blog long enough, you would notice that I don’t talk about slice of life anime a lot or barely at all. If you haven’t, you are about to learn something more about me. I am not the largest fan of slice of life anime. It’s in the same sort of…

My Guilty Pleasure: The Appleseed Franchise

I am not sure if I ever talked about this before in sort of detail or at all here, but I love the Appleseed Franchise and not in the way people usually love it. I love it for all the wrong reasons. For starters, the source material is from the same guy behind Ghost in…

I have mixed feelings about Suka Suka/World’s End

This is the one anime airing this season that I don’t know how to put my finger on. I’m not sure what it is, but there are a few things that throw off the series for me. This doesn’t mean that it’s bad because there are quite a few things that I like about it…
