I’ve talked about the Sound! Euphonium series before and how it was relatable to me. I was a massive band nerd during my time in high school which carried over to college. While my experiences are not one to one with the anime itself because I didn’t go to a Japanese high school and my … More Liz and the Blue Bird: Soft, Sweet, and Sentimental
Last week’s post was dedicated to Kaiba and more exploration of Masaki Yuasa’s works. This post is dedicated in a similar manner, but to explore more of studio Gainax’s works. The strange thing is from everything that I’ve seen, Gainax has a lot of discography talked about for one reason or another. They used to … More Mahoromatic: A Very Gainax Magical Girlfriend Show

Last year, I ended my Mecha March session with the first season of Fullmetal Panic. With this post, I am now solidifying the tradition where I talk about one segment of this wonderful franchise in some capacity with The Second Raid.

Here is the truth, mecha series are … More (Mecha March 2019) Five Recent Mecha Shows Worth Checking Out
You remember when Saturday morning cartoons where a thing? (Can you believe I said that?) I am not just talking about shows like Looney Tunes and other shows related to them. No, I am talking about the more advanced episodic adventure shows. Shows where kids went on adventures to exotic locations they wouldn’t be able … More (Mecha March 2019) Giant Gorg: A Fun Saturday Morning Adventure Show
To ruin the illusion of me writing about all these mech shows that are getting a review this month, I finished watching Armored Trooper Votoms in the middle of November last year. I think you can now see how far in advanced I’ve been thinking and planning for Mecha March. Armored Trooper Votoms is a … More (Mecha March 2019) Armored Trooper Votoms: A new favorite mech show?

Mecha March is finally here and this is the first show that is running off the review chain. Out of the mind of the creator of the Mobile Suit Gundam and some other series that deserve some attention in today’s anime sphere comes Aura Battler Dunbine. This was a show that came out a few … More (Mecha March) Aura Battler Dunbine – The First Japanese Isekai Story
It seems like I am doing a couple movie reviews in a short amount of time and there is a reason for that. I feel like Alita and Gundam needed to be supported because I don’t know how much help their markets need. Alita: Battle Angel was a decent manga adaption from a holly wood … More Gundam Narrative (NT): Extra DLC for Gundam Unicorn
