A personal reflection about fandoms

Whether or not you know about it, this past weekend has been precluded by two bad fandom events. One is the infamous Rick and Morty event based on the McDonald’s advertising a limited run of a certain sauce. This resulted in a lot of angry fans and a lot of police actions around the United…

Watching horrifying anime in public

Quick show of hands, who watches anime in public in some way? What device do you use to watch it? Where do you usually watch it? I know that this sounds like some sort of survey, but I’m wondering how alone I am on doing this. It’s been a major part of my viewing habits…

Sakuga Culture Worries Me

This is a topic that has worried me for a while, but has bothered me more because of recent events. This event being the studio and staff announcements of the second season of One Punch Man. The biggest things that come to question around this are the fact that Madhouse is not producing it. JC…

Strengths of Science Fiction Media (and why I love it)

Before I dive deeply into this post, did I ever mention how much of a nerd I am? Yes, I run an anime blog that I post on very inconsistently on that I share my opinions on and all that, but do you know my non-anime side? Do you know how much I love anything…

My Favorite Cliché

If there is one thing that I don’t understand, it’s why people automatically claim that clichés are bad. Yes, there are bad cases of it. Especially when you watch another isekai video game anime and see where all the tropes are going without any creativity behind it all. It’s all about the execution. There are…

(OWLS Post) Rie Kiriyama’s Loss and Recovery

Hello everyone, my name is Scott. For those who are new, I love mech anime, which is why my blog is named the way it is. I step away from that realm a lot and I am doing so again today when talking about March Comes in like a Lion for the fourth time on…

A great Disappointment – Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul

I don’t know about any of you who are watching this series, but I am not enjoying this anime on any sort of level. After the last episode, I can also add in that it hasn’t affected me on any sort of emotional level either. Even after all this time, when something about the characters…

My Subs vs Dubs Opinion (In RVRS TOO)

As anime fans, we’ve always known the sub vs dub argument, right? I mean, it’s nearly impossible to avoid it. On every corner of the internet, there is always going to be some argument about how some people prefer the purity of sub anime (which doesn’t make any sense, considering that the subtitles are modified…

Scores…what’s the point?

You get it, because points and scores are almost the same thing.  It’s almost like humor, but the kind that makes your head hurt and throw things at the person who said it? *cough* Anyway, I know I made a post about MAL scores, but scores in general have always been irritating. Especially with those…

My Hero Academia, Yu Yu Hakusho, and my love for shonen

I feel like I am the millionth person to ever gush about My Hero Academia, but that’s because I am completely in love with it almost like everyone else is. This is partially because it’s characters, story, and action scenes are great, but because I am and always will be a shonen battle junkie. I…

My Issues with Binge Watching

I don’t know about you, but I have never been a fan of binge watching. It’s partially because it’s a thing that I cannot do easily, but I also feel like it’s not how tv shows should be watched. Maybe that’s just me and my somewhat old-fashioned type of thinking, but I know I might…
