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…

RErideD and my problems with Time Travel

RErideD is far from the most interesting show to talk about this season. Everything about this show is average. The characters are average because it’s not like they aren’t developed in anyway, but their development only happens when it must happen.

The importance of food in society – ACCA-13 Commentary

I never thought I would write a post about food on this blog, but here I am. ACCA is an anime that is obsessed with its food and its political intrigue. At times, they both walk hand and hand. Almost like that is the point. If there is one thing that represents how a society…

How to not buy a bootleg disc online

The reasons behind why nobody should buy a bootleg are easy to explain.  For one, when you buy one, you are not supporting the anime industry.  Instead, you are supporting a pirate who downloaded something illegally from the internet and put it on a disc for their own profit.  Also, the quality of the disc…
