A long time ago (in 2006), I worked in a Blockbuster video store. Around the same time, Rian Johnson’s first movie “Brick” came out. When I watched that movie, I loved it, but I realized that the premise of the movie is ludicrous. On paper, the plot is the kind of high school power fantasy […]Read More School Days is complete and utter BS and it doesn’t matter — An #AniTwitWatches post
Way back in the before time, when I blogged before, there were no tag posts. In fact, there was this strange divide between what we called editorial blogs (like mine) and episode review blogs. There were a few outliers, but mostly they could be put into one of those two categories. I wish tag posts […]Read More It’s time to RECOGNIZE… some bloggers
I’ve been under the weather for the last couple days, so I’ve been doing what any right-thinking anime fan should do — I’ve been watching anime.

It’s not all during the last […]Read More Impressions: The end of 91 Days has brought a Concrete Revolutio to Dororo
Oh man, I’m super neat. I’m so neat that three people tagged me in the Real Neat Blog Award. I’ve fallen super behind on answering them, so I’m going to answer all of Keiko’s, Tanteikid’s and Pinkie’s questions in a single post. I hope that is OK.

I’m not passing down some wisdom from on high. This was a show made by a man who suffered from […]Read More Will I ever learn to love you, Eva?
It’s happening. Goro Taniguchi is coming back with an anime about … figure skating? I’m breaking with my normal intro format to mention this article about Taniguchi teaming up with someone from Black Clover to produce a figure skating anime. I will be OK with it, but only if it has some reckless fire. Yes. […]Read More The Otakusphere: Reckless fire, Keeping a schedule and so many reviews
A really amazing thing happened this week during #Anitwitwatches. I got suckered by a show. I consider myself a pretty astute viewer. If I have my critical viewing powers engaged, I consider myself pretty hard to manipulate. I mean I can be tricked by an ending, or by a second act turn, but I’m usually […]Read More Why you’re supposed to hate Makoto in School Days. An #Anitwitwatches post
