Ode to Anime Studios – Studio feel.
Someone’s probably already made the pun already about feel bringing the feels… Studio feel’s been gaining some popularity in recent years, so now’s a better time than ever to talk about them. Sidenote: I am not kidding with that title, by the way - the studio’s logo and name is stylised “feel.” (Anime News Network... Continue Reading →
Finalising the Fall 2018 Lineup & Learning to Love (Backlog) Anime Again
I wonder if I even needed to hit refresh on my enthusiasm levels... Due to Han Gyaku Sei Million Arthur being a no-show and the show being pulled out of my seasonal lineup being Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken (due to the adventure genre's typical slow pace for worldbuilding's sake, it won't really matter if I...

Even So, Sinners Dance Aimlessly…
When I watched Dances with the Dragons (henceforth Saredo), I kept making comparisons to Concrete Revolutio... Dances with the Dragons (Saredo Ryuu wa Tsumibito to Odoru) is an odd duck. It’s got something political going on under all those plot points, a pink-haired male protagonist and a motley crew that people can’t really keep track... Continue Reading →

As you can see, things are finally set up in the realm of OWLS. Welcome to any newcomers. I’m Aria - not to be confused with Fujinsei’s Arria (note the spelling is slightly different), but you can call me “MagicConan14” too - and I run this place known as the Animanga Spellbook.

Fall 2018 First Impressions Pt 3:…That Got Explicit Real Fast
Goblin Slayer and DakaIchi conveniently happened to be in the same post so I could slap "content warnings for discussions of the 18+ stuff, including rape, assault and murder" in one place. Just to get details out of the way quickly: part 1 (RErideD and Double Decker) and part 2 (Zombieland Saga, Run with the Wind, Bakumatsu,... Continue Reading →
