(Post of Christmas Future) Ideas needed: Creating an Anime Tag

Ok, I recently came up with an interesting idea that I need a little help brain storming. We have all seen those general blogger tags, right?  Well, this is something that I want to create for blogs that have a particular focus on anime. Also, I wanted to start this off when my blog becomes…

(Post of Christmas Present) Five Flaming Hotties Tag

Welcome to the present. Glad you all made it. I’m a little nervous about sharing this one, but hey. It’s fun right? I was tagged by Merlin from Merlin’s Musings a while ago, so thanks to him for this somewhat provocative post that you are about to see. I think everybody is learning a little…

We are always biased – Kino’s Journey (2017) Watch Eulogy

Do you think it’s possible to walk into any sort of medium completely unbiased? This is kind of a trick question, because I don’t think it’s possible at all. The closest way that would be the case if we watch or read something at a really young age. When we were kids, we could walk…

Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Episode 3 – Boom Shakalaka

Can I just tell you how great this show is? I mean really. Yes, I am cheating a little bit here because I’ve seen it before and am clearly biased, but I really mean it? Even with a pretty standard episode like this one, this show fills up gaps with characterization that not many shows…

Dragon Ball Super Opinion Update (as of episode 41)

I feel strange about this, but I’ve been looking forward to Dragon Ball Super more and more recently. It’s grown on me a lot since it started airing. I won’t say that it’s a complete thumb up show yet, but it’s changed from a meh side-ways thumb to a three-forth’s thumbs up. So yes, very…

Kino’s Journey (2017) – Episode 7: Guns, guns everywhere

Ok, I’ve been trying to not let it bother me for a while, but this Kino’s Journey series is really starting to irritate me. Why? It’s inconsistent and because it turns into badly made self-insert fiction half of the time. (It’s only half, because episode three partially counts). I don’t know about you, but singular…

Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Episodes 1 and 2

Remember when I said I wouldn’t be making episodic reviews again? Yeah, don’t pay attention to that. I am a big fat liar. In this case though, I don’t mind being a liar. Having the dubbed version of this show appear on Funimation and the subbed version on Crunchyroll is a surprise that cannot be…

Fall 2017 Anime at the Half Way Point

Before I get into this, can I just tell you how amazing this season is? I mean seriously, even the worse shows that I am watching are still at least watchable. Also, there is so much good variety to this season and I am glad I am able to dig into as many genres as…

Angelic Layer: Dolls aren’t just cutesy things

While my pace for watching older anime series has greatly slowed down since the summer season, I am still riding the train of older series as best as I can. For the past month and some change, I have been watching as much as I can Angelic Layer and this show has really grown on…

Kino’s Journey (2017): Episode 6 – Luck is all you need

From episode to episode basis, I feel like all of Kino’s Journey’s sudden left curve episodes are going to happen on even numbered episodes. Episode 2 was the colosseum episode that lead to the death of an entire country, episode 4 wasn’t as bad as episode 2 but similar things happened with Shizu, who was…
