Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Episode 11 – War Time Complications

Remember last time when I said/thought that the war and political intrigue would happen in this episode? You shouldn’t be surprised about this episode at all then. This is exactly what it is. The complications of seeing an alien race humanity has been fighting against look and act the same as humans is something that…

My Approach to Seasonal Anime Watching

Before I get into my winter 2018 anime first reaction post, I just want to take a moment of your time to discuss how I usually approach seasonal anime. I think Zel from Archi-Anime asked me question about this on one of my posts at some point. Maybe not though, it’s hard to remember things…

Ancient Magus Bride: Everything has a cost

Like a lot of people, I have been taken into the realm of this great anime like the rest of us. I am not sure if I see and appreciate it like everybody else I know is enjoying it, but there is something special that makes me watch every week. To me, Ancient Magus Bride…

Devilman Crybaby Thoughts

Ok, I am going to be truthful with you guys. I had no idea what I was getting into when I first started watching this series. I barely had an idea of who Go Nagai was and my expectations of what Devilman was came from watching the Cyborg 009 vs Devilman ova on Netflix. I…

Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Episode 10 – Frenemies

After watching last week’s episode and saying everything that is great about it, you think that this next episode would be a letdown. In some ways it is and some ways it isn’t. Episode 10 of Yamato 2199 is a lot less complicated when it comes to its themes and story then episode 9, but…

2nd Blogiversary Post: A Year in Review

Hello Everyone, welcome to my second blog anniversary. Two years ago from today was when I posted my first blog post. This one in fact. It hasn’t gotten any views since that day, but it is a completely accurate post about how I got into anime in the first place. A post that really shows…

I prefer Character-Driven Narratives

I kind of have to laugh because both of this discussion post and the last one are influenced by things that are not anime. The last one was influenced by Star Wars: The Last Jedi and this one influenced by Stranger Things Season 2. Yes, I finally finished it! I can see why a lot…

Recommend an Anime Tag

Hello everyone! Welcome to my second blogiversary week. The official day is Friday, but why not have some sort of lead up to it? This is the post/tag thing that I’ve written about a while ago and it’s finally come to fruition. After giving it some careful thought, I’ve finally come up with what I…

Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Episode 9 – What is life?

How do I even start talking about an episode like this? Yamato 2199 has been great through out it’s run so far, but what happens when an episode goes beyond the bounds of the level of great and becomes something else? Something Amazing. Something Intelligent. Something that will make you question a lot of things…

Different Opinions Shouldn’t Scare You

This post was influenced with my experience leading up to watching the new Star Wars movie. Finally watching it on Christmas, I was somehow able to avoid spoilers for a couple weeks. Despite all that, I’ve heard a lot of mixed opinions on the movie leading up to my watching of it. Wow, *rolls eyes…

Land of the Lustrous: A Snapshot in Time

If you have read through my top anime of 2017 list and my top anime of fall 2017 list, you might see that Land of the Lustrous is missing from them. I wish I could give a complete reason why that is, but it seems like each one of them is an excuse or a…

My Least Favorite Anime from 2017

I going to be completely honest here, I have not gone out of my way to watch what most people consider to be the worst shows of this year. Still, these are shows that pissed me off for one reason or another. Clearly, this post is clearly biased toward me and my opinions. These are…
