Summer 2017 Anime at the Halfway Point

I feel like this post is a little late, but it’s about time I put more opinions out about the summer season. At this moment, I think the season as a whole is just ok. I would still put Winter 2017 in a higher place over the spring and the summer, but that doesn’t mean…

Welcome to the Ballroom isn’t that great

If there is one thing that annoys me the most, it’s an over hyped series. I realize that all shows have some hype built around them when they first appear so people will pay attention to them and thus provide an audience. Still, there is the fact that some shows are more over hyped them…

Wolf’s Rain: The Journey for Paradise

Man, why didn’t I watch this show when I was younger? I had so many opportunities to do so, but I always turned it down for one reason or another. Why did I do that? Maybe it was because a story about wolves traveling from once place to another was rather silly? Well, there is…

RWBY Vol 1-4: Two Barriers to Success

This sounds like a continuous thing for me because I am always seem to be re-watching shows that I disliked at first glance from a long time ago. Well, I am learning that I am a judgmental asshole. I probably still am one now, maybe just a little less of one. I watched the first…

Akito the Exiled: Yup, it’s still Code Geass

Code Geass is a show is incredibly nostalgic for me. I remember binge watching this show twice in my life time. Once was even a nonstop watch of ALL FIFTY EPISODES. OMG. I cannot believe that I did that. That was in college too. My junior year of being an undergrad. That is the time…

Blast from the past – Captain Harlock: Arcadia of my Youth

Origin stories have become incredibly common place these days. Especially since we are currently in the super hero movie bubble. More hero origins are getting explained and are still being placed in the already large cinematic universe, DC is catching up with their latest offering being the origin story of Wonder Woman, Star Wars is…

Old school and new school combined – MHA S2 E10

Just a warning, if you haven’t seen this episode yet, I am about to spoil the whole thing. BEWARE (wiggles fingers dramatically). I know that I am going to be one of many people who gush about this episode and for good reason. This was one of the best episodes of anime that I’ve seen…

I have mixed feelings about Suka Suka/World’s End

This is the one anime airing this season that I don’t know how to put my finger on. I’m not sure what it is, but there are a few things that throw off the series for me. This doesn’t mean that it’s bad because there are quite a few things that I like about it…

(Some Thoughts) Hakuouki: Season One

I wrote a post about Hakuouki and the reverse harem genre in general a little while ago and I have to say that a lot of my feelings toward this series have not changed since then. Reverse harem shows seem to be intelligently written for the most part and Hakuouki is yet another decent example…
