Welcome to the Spellbook!

It was said that one day long ago, MagicConan14 stumbled across an ancient series of spells known as "anime". Anime has captivated MagicConan14 for almost as long as they've lived, and now they are hoping to analyse what makes them work.

Summer 2022 First Impressions: Tokyo Mew Mew New

I had my reservations about this series, but since it's a reboot and not a sequel (...so far...), it should be safe...right...? If I could make this post incoherent screaming of something to the effect of "Magical girls rule!", then I would. However, you want more words from me than that...so if you've seen the...

Hyping Up Summer 2022

Here we go again! To be honest, there's a bit to be nervous about...first of all, real life caught up to me, so I'm a few episodes behind with Spy x Family.

Ancient Chinese history bores me, to be honest - all that stuff about war strategy and tradition is more my dad's domain. Despite that, I love it - which is... Continue Reading →

The Eximius Blog Award

I don't think I've seen this award before Terrance Crow tagged me... Meta note: I started this post, mostly finished it...and then left it for a while to finish other stuff, including putting out a 1st impressions post on Paripi Koumei which makes this post seem out-of-sync in retrospect. (Source: Crow's post, linked above) Rules... Continue Reading →

Manga March (5): Toritan

Last manga for this month! How did I do? Toritan's a BL but it's rather harmless...at least, from the one volume I have of it. "So what's it about?" Inusaki, a detective in name but a bit of a bum in occupation terms, can talk with birds.He saves a bird from a crow one time.Soon... Continue Reading →
