It’s Time to Say Goodbye
Over the past three years I’ve run a group watch called AniTwitWatches over on Twitter. In that time we watched 20 different shows, had wonderful discussions, and had a pretty good time (well, mostly) along the way too! Today’s article, however, marks the end of this program after season 20, Big Order. I’d like to take this time to explain why we stopped, how Big Order represented the spirit of the program (even if it might seem like a strange note to end on), and whatever related thoughts I may have along the way. This isn’t a typical review, but I will talk about my thoughts on Big Order here so if you want that I’ll section it in a way so you can easily find it. With that, let’s get right to it.

Finally, I Watched Love Live!
I’ve actually been quite interested in watching Love Live! School Idol Project for some time now. Unfortunately, the series only had the second season of the first series available for several years. That is, until recently when Funimation (now Crunchyroll) got the streaming rights to the first season. While it’s true I could have started with future entries, I wanted to start from the beginning and make my way slowly through the franchise as I’ve been doing with Fate and others. Today I’ll be sharing 9 thoughts, or “μ’sings” if you will, about my experience with Love Live! so far. Continue reading “9 μ’sings about Love Live! School Idol Project”

Last Time on #Controversed…
Previously I gave a brief introduction to talking about controversy and introduced the month-long article series I’ll be doing here each week.

I’m no Stranger to Controversy
Whether it’s Goblin Slayer or Uzaki-chan, there seems to be no shortage of controversy when it comes to the anime community. Hell, even outside of it the internet always seems to have something it’s worked up over. Navigating these kinds of topics can be a bit of a challenge, but I’d like to share my perspective on how to approach them. This is the first article in a weekly series called, #Controversed, as part of an event I’m sponsoring with Moya of The Moyatorium. More information will be provided at the end of the article.

Recently I Entered a Writing Competition
While I didn’t win “Fusion Fight“, I did enter it and wanted to share my experience with you regarding that contest. For it we were all tasked with writing a short story that blended two genres together in 500 words or less. So naturally I decided to do something a bit wacky and took a solo role-playing game to tell my tale. In Allision Arth’s game, The Gentleman Bandit, you play as the titular character and write a poem to leave behind at the scene of your latest crime. So let’s dive in and take a look at both the game, and the story it helped me to generate. Continue reading “The Gentleman Bandit – Short Story & Solo RPG Review”
First a Little Introduction
I’ve been sitting on this for awhile but I thought I’d go ahead and release the first chapter of a project I was working on awhile back. Before COVID really got going, I had a game of Savage Worlds going on with some friends. This game is a role-playing game that supports any setting and is a lot of fun. We had chosen to do a 1920’s-esque noir story focused on the titular Earl Webber Detective Agency. Continue reading “The Earl Webber Detective Agency – Chapter 1: The Red Lady”
