Demon Sayer Corps: Kimetsu no Yaiba 12 – Somnambulism, Motion Sickness, and Other Afflictions

In this (even later than usual, sorry) episode of the collab, stupid puns are made, stupid puns are revealed and…maybe, just maybe, there might be some praise for Zenitsu.

The Moyatorium

Happy July 24th! You ask me what’s happening on this day? Well…nothing in particular as far as I know, but I’m sure we can find a reason to celebrate on Foodimentary – oh guess what, it’s National Tequila Day! I refuse to drink any alcohol that isn’t sweetened, and this certainly doesn’t relate to the episode in any way, but congrats if you celebrate this holiday.

  • Purple = Aria (crazy bird lady)
  • Green = Plyasm (future-seeing manga reader)
  • Blue Astral (Nezuko’s other oniisan)
  • Red = Me (hard-to-impress shounen critic)

1. What are your general thoughts on this episode? [Mandatory]

Woot! More worldbuilding, more Kasugai crow (although he scared me for a second) and more butt-kicking.

Zenitsu redeeming himself unconsciously, demon politics, and Tanjiro’s self-to-self pep talk (which I surprisingly didn’t mind).

Man, the combat in this show is always just so good. Tanjiro being a good boi aside…

Weekly Shonen Jump’s Girl Problem, Viewed Through The Lens of Dr. Stone

Inspired by this Anime Feminist post. After finding a 4th volume of Dr Stone at the library and finishing it, I think it'll be interesting to see people's reactions (especially those guys at Anime Feminist, if they even bother) to the anime adaption of the mini tournament arc that's being set up in that volume....

Ode to Anime Studios – Kyoto Animation

…for once, this post series can actually be relevant to current discussions…although that has its own set of inherent risks… Kyoto Animation, known as “KyoAni” for short, is known for distinctive visuals, its fair work practices and, within the anime community, it has some degree of infamy for its fans…which is why I’ve been so...

Summer 2019 First Impressions: The Final Stretch

I don't think I have any snarky puns for the post title anymore.Previously, I watched Sacred Beasts, Astra, Maou-sama Retry! and UchiMusume. The post after that had Fire Force, Dr Stone, Granbelm and Ensemble Stars. I'll be skipping the recap of DanMachi (I saw s1 at the start of the Spellbook's existence!), so then it's Arifureta, Cop Craft, DanMachi,... Continue Reading →

Kimetsu no Yaiba collab – Episode 11: The Coward and the Kids

On this episode of the Demon Slayer collab, Ply’s back, Astral goes full shonen nut, Moya acts as the voice of reason…and I end up making a fool of myself.

(To be fair, I do admit why I don’t get the joke earlier in the post.)

The Zodiac Room

Why hello, my beautiful people! Welcome back to the world of Kimetsu no yaiba, where us bloggers are pathetically flailing at the keyboard to try and catch up to a show that’s threatening to leave us behind. I take no part in the blame for these circumstances…

I do, however, feel no shame in admitting that I’m enjoying this show far more than I perhaps should be. It’s just excellent shounen goodness all wrapped in a beautiful bundle of swords and nonsensical powers and it’s just lovely… but enough of my drooling. You came here for a collection of dorky thoughts and half-fleshed-out answers, so here you go.

What are your general thoughts on this episode?[Mandatory]

Zenitsu was…way worse than I thought he’d be for the show’s humour and that sunk…

The Main Appeals of Manga

I’ve been reading a lot of shoujo manga lately and it made me realise there’s one particular reason manga works so well. A good manga is one that you can devour volumes of quickly and then ask for more of, right? As I’ve been reading one volume of manga after another, I came to the... Continue Reading →
