The 30 Day Anime Challenge Day 20 – Anime Character That’s Really Annoying

Really, I Just Don’t Like This Guy

30-day-anime-challengeHere’s the schedule and all that. Recently I rewatched an anime that used to be on my favorite’s list waaaay back in 2015. After doing so, the show dropped out of my favorites. I still really enjoy Guilty Crown but now that I have oodles more anime experience I can’t help but feel a lot of its story is bogged down with an over reliance on troupes. Additionally, the show is just too ambitious for its relatively short runtime. It ends up being kind of annoying, just like today’s pick from the same show.

Let’s see what title I ultimately decided was my favorite! Continue reading “The 30 Day Anime Challenge Day 11 – My Favorite Mecha Anime”

Voting will be open from today until 6/30/17 at 11:59PM.

I know I’ve been gone for a bit due to Uni, but now that I have officially graduated with a degree in Marketing (Yay!) let this be the first marker of my return to the blogging realm! Please note that the survey isn’t going to look quite as great as it did in previous rounds. I had to downgrade to a free account since I can no longer use my school one. Other than no longer looking extra pretty, the survey is functionally the same as the others.

Remember to encourage others to vote for your choice. Let’s shoot for a new high score on number of votes this go around, I know we can do it!

Thanks again for voting!

Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor (Season 1) Review – Gambling is Serious Business

Serious Business, With Serious Consequences

80032After finishing Kaiji:  Ultimate Survivor, to be further referred to as Kaiji, I felt it was necessary to immediately do a write up. Normally, I would wait a bit, think about it some, and do this, but not for this show. I have a passion for the “mind game” genre which Kaiji belongs to and have waited a good long while before watching. Did it live up to all the praise, or is this anime not worth taking the gamble on?

CG in Anime – A Brief History & Discussion

Love it or Hate it, We’re Stuck With 3D & CG Work in Anime

Since I took a look at Ajin‘s first season earlier this week I thought it might be interesting to explore my thoughts on the use of computer generated content and various 3D elements that are becoming ever present in the anime industry. Before all that though, let’s explore the history of CG in anime.
