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.

In this episode of Demon Slayer, we meet the Pillars (Hashiras), complain about skirts and ship Giyu x Shinobu…I apologise in advance though, because we don’t have any mini Nezuko memes for you.
This episode was plenty of fun. No pre-content rambling from me here today, let’s just get into it.
Who we are:
- Purple = Aria (well of knowledge)
Green = Plyasm (sick and trying to stay alive)
- Blue = Astral (shounen enthusiast)
- Red = Me (demon apologist)
1. What are your general thoughts on this episode? [Mandatory]
I thought we were getting off the stinking mountain (to reappropriate some words from one of the Kakushi) last episode…I guess I probably should’ve seen that Rui backstory coming, though.
A pretty solid episode, honestly. It’s sorta nice to be back to some of the lighter character interactions now that the threat of Rui and the spider family has passed.
I appreciated the Rui backstory, and enjoyed the interactions between Tanjiro, Giyu, and Shinobu. And Shinobu’s little sister is cute.
- I found I didn’t have a lot to say because not a whole…

After replying to Jerem’s post, it made me think about the various factors that change a person’s anime watching habits… I still love anime with as much passion as I did when I first started watching, but time changes a lot of things. First of all, while people grow up with anime, their “anime watching... Continue Reading →
On these episodes of Demon Slayer…1) not too many demons get slain, 2) Ply is still absent, 3) I make some awesome wallpapers, 4) Astral hints at the future and 5) Moya brings up the things with the most common sense, as per usual…(?).
The last week has been a crazy one for all of us, I think. Ply’s been real sick (so he’s out of the collab again), I’ve been dealing with physical therapy for my surgery recovery, Moya’s got a new job, and Aria’s had some chaos going on as well. Everything likes to pile on all at once, huh?
Despite all these complications, we (most of us) have managed to keep up with the show fairly well. In the interests of getting back on track, this’ll be a twofer, covering the much-celebrated episode 19, and the perfect follow-up, episode 20.
To keep you all reminded:
I’m blue, da boo die
Aria (na) Grande
What are your general thoughts on this episode?
YES, YES, YES!! This episode is one of the things I’ve been waiting all season to see! The final showdown between Rui (confirmed to be one…

As I was writing up my summer 2019 prediction post, I wrote a good 1500 - 2000 words and then cut a third of it because I was going on about shows I was uncertain about. However, there's one summer anime I really have a weird relationship with... ...and that's O Maidens in Your Savage... Continue Reading →
September 5th is a mightily significant day for me…but you’ll have to guess why it is. My lips are sealed on that front. Hiya, OWLS fans. To the newcomers, OWLS are the Otaku Warriors for Liberty and Self-respect, who promote diversity and acceptance regardless of sexuality, race, religion and disability. I'm almost at 1 year...

Regardless of what you think about fan translations, the problem with them is that they lay down the foundation for weird things to happen… The answer to this Answerman (specifically “…30-page-long snail-mailed hate screeds in broken English (angry about subtitle translation choices not matching that of fansubs, natch)…”) made me think about how fansubs are...

With Kimetsu no Yaiba airing right now, it seems like a good time to write about ufotable. The interesting thing is that I’ve always pronounced the studio’s name “u-fot-able”, but it should be (according to the katakana) pronounced “yu-fo-table”…not that it makes much of a difference from pronouncing each of the letters in “UFO” separately,...

I’m trying out a slightly different type of post format by taking a question and answering it with facts (this one is, quite obviously, centred around the question, “What’s up with the Budokan in anime, anyway?”), so bear with me if this doesn’t seem to be as good as usual… The title quote comes from...
