The 12 Days of Anime call to arms

The one moment that will be on everyone’s list, if they have any sense. I’m a sucker for tradition, doubly so if it involves Christmas, and triply so if it enables me to write about all my favourite anime. Quadruply so if it means I get to eat pizza, but we can’t have them all.

Anime Blogger Interrogation Game

Like an STD in an after-hours party for the anti-contraceptive brigade, the Anime Blogger Interrogation Game has been spreading across the aniblogosphere.

I’ll have all my responses in one post later on. However, […]

There have been many theories tossed out for why this may be the case. Blogging in general is losing its relevance, equally so in the anime world. Perhaps the 2006-8 period of […]

Ore no Imouto episode 5

Episode 4 sure caused a lot of discussion across anime blogs. Since my post was one of the first out, I wasn’t able to respond to them  in a post of my own, leaving it to the relevant comment sections. But it was really interesting to read all the various interpretations and thoughts towards the […]
