Fall 2016 Anime First Impressions: March Comes In Like a Lion, Girlish Number, Kiss Him Not Me, The Great Passage

Someone disappears into a background of shoujo flowers, only to burst out of them again complete with petals cascading off their body. You know, I still kinda like Shaft. Last batch for now, seeing as I’ve already started my secondary project of watching all the anime from this year I missed out on due to moving/classes/work/Overwatch. […]

Gen Urobuchi’s Puppet Show Thunderbolt Fantasy is Kind of Awesome (MAL article)

I’ve been watching a whole lot of Thunderbolt Fantasy lately since it’s on Crunchyroll. Let me tell you it’s a pretty goddamn amazing show. So much so that I decided to write a piece for MAL about why you should all go watch it. What has surprised me most is how solid the dialogue is, […]

Why Did People Hate the Second Half of Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress? (MAL Article)

I wrote a thing for MAL. I used to write these MAL article roundup posts but at some point they stopped making sense when I was writing primarily listicles. However the type of stuff I’ve been tasked to write has changed a little (a bit more attention grabbing, shocking headline type pieces), so it makes […]

We need more lightning to back up this sweetness

I really liked the opening episode of Sweetness and Lightning. It captured something about cooking that so many other anime about cooking never do. They captured the joy in seeing someone you care about eating your homemade food. It wasn’t shounen battle cooking where the actual cooking could be replaced with anything and it would […]
