Watching anime on Twitch was an entertaining experience

For about a week Twitch and Crunchyroll paired up to stream anime on Twitch. Crunchyroll picked a couple of popular and well liked anime from the past few years and you could tune in, jumping in and out with the live stream as the chat scrolled down the side. I tuned in for a few […]

Eromanga-sensei Review: Not Just a Town in Australia

Eromanga-sensei is a show that I didn’t have high hopes for. I expected it to follow a little too closely in its more well known sibling’s footsteps, without carving a strong identity of its own.

5 Light Novel adaptations announced in one day – further analysis

The light novel publisher Media Factory, a subsidiary of the publishing conglomerate Kadokawa, announced anime adaptations of 5 of their light novel properties. Usually I cover this sort of stuff in the season preview, but the 5 titles in question all have very noticeable similarities and re-occurring traits. It would be remiss of me not […]

Anime Blogging is dying, Attack on Titan is the biggest anime of the decade, and more

Let me start this post with a big disclaimer: It is incredibly easy to create false narratives using google trends. The service tracks how many people are searching for a specific term, so you have to take several things into account when deciding what these numbers mean. People could be searching for them in different […]
