Hey everyone. I have recently passed the five hundred series gap on MAL and a lot has been on my mind since then. The first thing is thinking back on all the series that I watched and how my tastes have changed over time. The second and more important thing is how anime has affected…

The Advantages of Longer Series

I’m playing devil’s advocate with myself on this one. When it comes to anime, I prefer shorter series with some very few exceptions. Some examples of those are Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, Hunter x Hunter, and both of Togashi’s works. Most long series last too long, have too much filler from catching up with the manga…

Top Five Female Mech Pilots

I feel like female pilots are highly underrepresented in the mecha genre? Does that mean that there aren’t that many female pilots in mech series? No. In fact there are quite a lot. It’s just that they seem to be side lined by the male pilots for one reason or another. Out of all the…

Eva Post 2.0: How Evangelion Changed (Mecha) Anime

How many times has one small thing changed life as we know it? How has the computer and development of electronics around it changed our world? What about advent of the internal combustion engine? The smart phone? Airplanes? Cars? I can keep going, but I think you know where I’m going with this. One invention…
