When franchises go too far: Gundam Twilight Axis

I’ve you have been around my blog enough, you would know how much I love the Gundam franchise. I love it, adore it, and obsess about it. The franchise has a few ups and downs, I would say a lot more ups then downs. Out of the whole franchise itself, the Universal Century is my…

Berserk (2017) and subjective opinions

I like this adaption of Berserk and I know what a lot of you are thinking. “HOW DARE YOU”, “THIS ANIME GOES AGAINST WHAT MIURA EVER DID WITH HIS MANGA”, “THE CG IS TERRIBLE, HOW COULD YOU STAND IT”, and many other angry internet comments. Yeah, you can go ahead and throw books, rocks, or…

What Sound! Euphonium gets right (band wise)

Hey all! Since the light novel of Sound! Euphonium came out this week, and I’ve been reading it, this felt like something I can do as a tribute to it and the show. The timing works perfectly, because I’m in between concerts with the community band I play with and I had nothing but band…

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…
