Elfen Lied is a Hot Mess

Just another series I got into way too late...and boy, do I have some words for this one. Elfen Lied is schlocky. No doubt about that. It's the sort of gratuitous blood splatter you watch on Halloween, late at night, if you're not afraid of invisible (badly-done CGI) hands. ...but why are the Diclonius all... Continue Reading →

#AniTwitWatches Rd. 10: Kanon 16 – 18

Note: While I was looking for confirmation on something early on in this round of #ATW, I found out Shiori is Kaori's sister (Jon had to catch me on that)...that seems to happen a lot with #ATW, since it happened with Perfect Insider as well. Thus, less stuff in these episodes surprised me than it... Continue Reading →

However, this time I put // to indicate which ones are tied and which are not (i.e. anything grouped together with a "(tie)" should have the same score). Normally I would... Continue Reading →

Do “Seasonal Gems” Even Exist?

Inspired by Prattle. Meta context: You can tell this post has been sitting in my drafts for a while because it mentions Seasonal Prattle, a blog I thought had gone inactive at one point due to some of the backlog posts disappearing when I wanted to read them. According to the date in the scheduler,... Continue Reading →
