Before Hypnosis Mic's anime drops on October 2nd, you might want to learn some things...(If you're already familiar with the series, you can also see the post I did regarding its lore some months back.) I tend to use obsession as a cure for all my problems (as detrimental as that can be), so it... Continue Reading →
Other People's Reads It wouldn’t be a round-up post without them. However, since I scour people’s archives on a regular basis, these may not even be from the right time period… (I had to recreate my entire template from scratch because entire sections of my old posts were disappearing, thanks to the block editor...) [Anime]... Continue Reading →
Watching these Pokemon anime put on YouTube, such as Generations and Twilight Wings, reminds me why I grew up with and love the series. Twilight Wings is a nice bit of animated goodness. The Wooloo episode really hit a chord, so much I watched it a second time without thinking after watching it the first... Continue Reading →
This relates to the (unofficial) rewatch project unveiled in this post and the removal of Sentai Filmworks titles. Considering I'm in the midst of working on the AWC Boss Battle (more info on that here), it is unlikely I will be able to finish my rewatch of Tsuritama in time for the removal - especially...

I was discussing with Scott what a normal week in anime looks like for me and...it might actually be more than I thought... I haven't talked about it much because it doesn't always have a place here, but now that we're slowly getting out of lockdown, let's compare experiences. COVID-19 has massively ratcheted up my watching,... Continue Reading →
[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. Whether they take on every show in... Continue Reading →
This is going to be the surprise upset of the season... As the title reveals, although I finished the seasonal posts having basically decided Ankoku Hakaishin (A Destructive God Sits Next to Me) was the shoo-in for the final open position - having already solidly chosen Eizouken, ID: Invaded and Magia Record before it -...

I've been hyping this milestone up for a while, haven't I? Anime that are eligible here are the ones I watched as they were airing. Ths means everything on the "Anime by Season" sheet of my simulcast commentary document, including the TV short series. Meta context: I finished writing up the absolutely huge A Magical...

Well, the post explains itself – we’re in for round 3 this year, so join in if you think you’re up to it.
12 Days of Anime will begin in a few weeks, and I invite everyone to participate. Forgive the late announcement because I’ve been swamped with last-minute assignments and essays for the past few weeks, but rest assured this event is still happening as scheduled.
What is 12 Days, you ask? It’s an aniblog tradition that gives bloggers and anitwitter the opportunity to write 12 posts about anime that have impacted them this year. It could be a top 12, or merely posts acknowledging the merits of certain works. It’s not restricted to TV anime, and it is not restricted to anime movies. You can talk about anime, period. I can say from experience that Fire Emblem: Three Houses is very much Extremely Fucking Anime. Pokemon Sword and Shield are so anime that they already have an actual anime airing…

Bear with me...the intro's a bit long. Prior to my trip to Japan, me and my family were working through a storeroom so we could find things to sell (to scrounge up extra souvenir money). One thing I found was a copy of The Bachman Books and, having previously known of the reputation of Stephen King... Continue Reading →
