Summer 2022 First Impressions: Tokyo Mew Mew New

I had my reservations about this series, but since it's a reboot and not a sequel (...so far...), it should be safe...right...? If I could make this post incoherent screaming of something to the effect of "Magical girls rule!", then I would. However, you want more words from me than that...so if you've seen the...

Summer 2022 First Impressions: Phantom of the Idol

This anime kicks off the summer 2022 season, so check over there for some more notes on this series. Look, HiDive - if you're going to advertise me your newest anime on your front page, at least link to it properly somewhere? I mean, I had to figure out what the link slug for Phantom...

Hyping Up Summer 2022

Here we go again! To be honest, there's a bit to be nervous about...first of all, real life caught up to me, so I'm a few episodes behind with Spy x Family.

Ancient Chinese history bores me, to be honest - all that stuff about war strategy and tradition is more my dad's domain. Despite that, I love it - which is... Continue Reading →

The Eximius Blog Award

I don't think I've seen this award before Terrance Crow tagged me... Meta note: I started this post, mostly finished it...and then left it for a while to finish other stuff, including putting out a 1st impressions post on Paripi Koumei which makes this post seem out-of-sync in retrospect. (Source: Crow's post, linked above) Rules... Continue Reading →

Manga March (5): Toritan

Last manga for this month! How did I do? Toritan's a BL but it's rather harmless...at least, from the one volume I have of it. "So what's it about?" Inusaki, a detective in name but a bit of a bum in occupation terms, can talk with birds.He saves a bird from a crow one time.Soon... Continue Reading →
