Hope in the Midst of Hopelessness
A concept that is often explored in media is the resiliency of humankind. No matter how bleak or hopeless a situation appears, people always find a way to survive and carry on. In some ways Girls’ Last Tour echoes this message while depicting a surreal, lonely, dying world. As long as we have each other, we can enjoy the end of the world together, right?

Enter a Storybook World…

A Bonus Fall 2017 Anime Review!
Our Love has always Been 10 cm Apart, or as I’ll refer to it as 10 cm, is an extra anime I decided to pick up while writing all the reviews for the Fall 2017 anime I watched. Being only six episodes long, each at standard length, I figured: “why not?” It’s your typical romance story that really doesn’t bring anything new to the table. However, I decided it was worth mentioning because of its length and how that effected the pacing. Continue reading “Our Love has always Been 10 cm Apart – Short & Simple”
Kekkai Sensen is Back!
Season two of Blood Blockade Battle Front, or Kekkai Sensen, is something that I was super excited for back when season one finished up. It took awhile, but it did finally come! My initial thoughts on this season (which you can read here) were fairly mixed, but it did manage to pull together in the end. Here’s my take on BBB season two.

Riding the waves of Eromanga…
I did that intro already in my Fall 2017 anime impressions article which you should totally check out. Despite what things may first appear, what A Sister’s All You Need ends up being is a hodgepodge of romance, comedy, meta-narrative, drama… thing. I’ve heard a lot about how it is just baseless pandering and repetitive jokes with an overly sexual focus but coming from a guy who is pretty quickly turned off by stuff like that I actually found myself enjoying this. A lot. Continue reading “A Sister’s All You Need – Not What You Think”
Sometimes, That’s All You Need
Kicking off my look at Fall 2017, is Recovery of an MMO Junkie which is a series that had me invested from the very start. I won’t be rehashing anything from my first impressions so go ahead and read that here if you’d like. While most people found the aspect of blossoming online relationships displayed in this series, today I’ll be discussing why I enjoyed a narrative that was largely on rails. Recovery of an MMO Junkie is fairly predictable, and really pretty average, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth your time because it absolutely is.

Usually, I don’t, but This Season I’m Watching Quite a Bit
Other than watching more than usual this season, I thought this would be a pleasant surprise after my short leave of absence. More than a few people have been wanting to know what I was watching this season and my thoughts so, by popular demand, I thought I’d finally do one of these things! I’ll walk through each show, my progress so far, and general thoughts. If a title you were hoping I’d cover is missing, it means I’m either not watching it or just don’t have access (it’s more likely to be the latter).
