Zaku ii C-5 Gunpla Build Project

Hello everyone, I’m back with another gunpla build. Last time was my Nu Gundam build, which you can see here. I made several mistakes in that build, so I tried to take a few lessons from that experience. All of those come down done to taking my time, making more precise cuts, and sanding down…

Of Losing, Limitations, and Grounded Story Telling

Ok, quick question. When you think of shonen battle clichés, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Are you thinking about one of your favorites arcs in one of your favorite shonen series? What about some special attack that you thought looked completely amazing? The dumb protagonist who isn’t good at anything…

Harems are dangerous, man

Hi everyone. It’s been along time since I’ve done a tag post. If I could ever give a reason for it, it’s because I give enough of myself and my personal feelings on my blog and I don’t usually like being tied down to certain prompts to do it. Also, tagging people takes a lot…

Last Week in Space and Mechs: 6/18/18

Last week was an on and off week in terms of quality this week. All the disappointments and moments of awesome just balanced everything out and it just turned out kind of eh. Oh well, what can you do? I’m not in control of these shows…. Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 11 Um, what? Where did…

Hinamatsuri: When did I start caring?

If there is show that can be called a sleeper hit, it’s Hinamatsuri. From everything that I’ve seen around the anime community, almost everyone has written this show off for one reason or another. I’m glad that it’s finding a place in the anime community right now, because Hinamatsuri is more than worth it. I…

I Love Episodic Anime

If there is one thing that bothers me about modern anime fandom, it’s people’s lack of understanding or dislike of episodic or mini arc storytelling. To me, it’s one of the most under rated forms of storytelling there is. I don’t think some people appreciate how much freedom it gives anime and what it can…

Heaven’s Feel Part 1 Talk

Hi everyone! Last Thursday, I went to the movie theater to see the first part of Heaven’s Feel (Presage Flower). I know that it was released a while back and was even in theaters way before now, but this is the first chance that I got to watch it. Until recently no theater near me…

Last Week in Space and Mechs: 6/11/18

Unlike Last week, this week’s mech and space shows were insanely good. Almost every single one of these shows built off of the mehness of last week and blew everything out of the water this week. Enough of this opening paragraph, let’s jump into these shows. There is too much to do here. Space Battleship…

Lost Universe: Sentimentally Doesn’t Account for Everything

Just like Full Metal Panic, this is another series that I tie to my lost brother. In a completely different way though, because not only did he make the Sword Breaker (protagonist ship) out of legos, he tried to get me absorbed into the series as well. Tried is the key, because when it aired…

In-between Generations of Fandoms and loving It

I feel like I’ve in-between generations of things. A quick example of this is the technology boom. Do you realize that I was alive when dot matrix printers, dos computers, and floppy discs where in style? What about when we made the transition to CDs and flip phones? Did you know that in Junior High,…

Toonami 6/2/18: FLCL Progressive Premiere and Dragon Ball Super

I know, I know. There are a lot of interesting shows airing on toonami recently, but I’ve seen all of those shows. Hunter X Hunter (2014), My Hero Academia, Lupin, and Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure are series that I love, but I have already fallen in love with the Japanese voice cast of each of those…

Last Week in Space and Mechs: 6/4/18

After last week’s build up, this week was a bit let down. It started with no new Legend of the Galactic Heroes, but every other series reached a low point if you could call it that. No new episode of Darling in the FranXX either, so there are good sides to that as well. Still…
