May 2017 Anime Roundup

It’s a week later than planned, but here’s my roundup of all the anime I watched last month. This month even included a much anticipating movie that has been wowing audiences everywhere, and no I’m not talking about Your Name. Also includes a catching-up process to a completely ignored full CG anime that’s not streaming […]

Why Tanya the Evil may end up being my favourite anime of 2017

Tanya the Evil may end up being my favorite anime of 2017. Considering it’s the first anime by a studio with no hype behind it and that my first impression was that it would be an anime for neo nazis, that’s quite the achievement. It tells the story of a sociopathic salaryman who is reborn […]

April 2017 anime roundup

New season, old anime. Because while I’ve tried a whole bunch of stuff this season, all the ones I’m really enjoying are sequels.

February 2017 anime roundup

When your anime watching is restricted to what you can view when you are on public transport, some anime fall by the wayside. Acca? Stylish political intrigue with adults that I once caught the ticket inspector pausing by me to check out. Little Witch Academia? Wholesome family cartoon that is maybe a little weird for […]

Comedy with meaning and why Nichijou’s longevity bothers me

I have a perhaps naive belief in the power of comedy to say something. Through the disarming capabilities of comedy you can push past barriers that you could only otherwise cover in the gravest of tones. It’s why I try to argue against the belief that comedy is some kind of mysterious thing where enjoyment […]
