Welcome! Welcome! It’s another Sunday afternoon, and like usual, I have a curated collection of anime- (and some not anime-) related blog posts for you today.

So my put-put engine got itself in gear, and I’m back to blogging. 2020 was a rough year for me in real life, and when the going gets rough, I generally turn to video games; escapism at its best. If I’m going to be back, well I need to roll the car out of the […]Read More The Otakusphere: Borderlands, navel gazing and kicking the tires
I’m having a difficult time with Kanon. The sad girls in the snow have led me to the winter of my discontent, and I’m still sorting out my feelings. It’s not a bad show, except for when it it, and it’s not a good show, except for when it is. It’s a rare beast when […]Read More The winter of my discontent with Kanon — an #anitwitwatches post
