I got some good news this week. After bemoaning that normally the anime films only come to Spokane or Seattle, I learned Weathering with You is actually playing right here, in the town I live in. So I don’t need to travel for five hours. Neat-o. Granted, I waited a bit too long before making […]Read More The Otakusphere: Different perspectives, #anitwitwatches and I can’t stop copying Crow,
What’s new fellow ani-bloggers in the Otakusphere. Well, let me tell you. There’s a new season, and a new movie and new drama and new… well… shoes? This is just a long way of pointing out that Makoto Shinkai’s new film “Weathering with You” hit the big screens in the U.S. I can’t escape it […]Read More The Otakusphere: Movies I can’t see, shows I haven’t watched and old, old arguments
We’ve made it out of the sucking hole that is the post-holiday season, and I’m starting to get ready to do all of my other work. That said, I’m slowly feeling better after having a rough patch there.

I know it’s a tired paean from people in their middle years, but it feels like time just gets away from me. It’s […]Read More The Otakusphere: Eldritch abominations, broken hearts and it’s almost Christmas?

I wonder what you spread vaguely happy memory paste on. Does it go on 99 cent white bread? Probably. The […]Read More The Otakusphere: What everyone else likes this year

It’s the time of year when I can buy all of the stuff that I’ve been pining over at ridiculous discounts. But really I love the holidays. I get to put […]Read More The Otakusphere: Dead Women, Con Reports and Happy Holidays!
