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.

[Read this post in a David Attenborough voice.] The seasonal anime watcher does a migration four times a year to snatch the best prey – whether it be slice of life shows, action thrillers or promotion (*looks at AKB0048 and Sanrio Boys suspiciously*) , they want it all.

Sending in Spring 2020

In amongst all the Fate/ stuff, it feels like it's been nothing but Fate/ this entire season and the simulcasts were happening on the periphery...until Iruma-kun came to an end. The people who normally alert me to the end of the season started, for me, about 3 weeks... Continue Reading →
