Of the Disposability of Anime and Nostalgia Goggles

With this post, I am leaning into a lot of territories that I’ve talked about in previous posts, but it’s been a while. I gained some newer followers in recent times, so I think that it’s ok to repeat an older one by putting another spin on it. Those posts themselves are probably forgotten because…

SSSS.Gridman: Repetition and Amnesia can be dull sometimes

Before I jump into this show, I will say that my feelings for Gridman are generally positive. There are so many things that Gridman has going for it. I love how pretty the visuals are even if they borrow from Evangelion a lot of the time. I love the interesting character designs. Each of their…

What I’m interested in watching in: Fall 2016

Since the new season is beginning soon, it’s time to start thinking about what to watch.  I’ve looked through anichart.net a few times and this is what I’m interested in watching.  This doesn’t mean that this is all I’m watching, because random shows do have a chance on showing up on my to watch list…

When anime characters look the same (with random list thing)

Originality is not something that you can really find in even things like anime.  From each decade, there is a certain style of anime that became extremely popular and other series that tried to copy off its success.  These big series also go on to influence other popular series in terms of animation, art style,…
