Demon Sayer Corps(collab)[And announcements]: Kimetsu no Yaiba Ep2: Obligatory training arc

Now you can check out our 2nd episode impressions for Demon Slayer (not Demon /Sayer/ like the title says).

Plyasm's wormhole

Hello my lovely people! Obviously, before I officially start the post, I need to address some things.

First would be the fact that my blog got to 100 followers! Whoo!

umaru celebrations Obligatory himouto gif.

I’m honestly very thankful to all of you, and I never thought this would happen, really. Someone like me, who takes ages to get even one post out still have people who want to read what I write. I hope I’ll continue to write enjoyable posts for you to read.
*It’s also the 2nd year anniversary of the blog, mini-celeberation whoo…
**If you were expecting more from the celebrations, I’m sorry. I really can’t think of anything unique to write for now. When I think of it, I’ll make a seperate post for you all to enjoy.

And second, is going to be addressing the collab. I know, we are late and yada yada, but it really…

200 Follower Q and A (and Some Other Stuff to Pad Out the Wordcount)

Thanks to everyone who asked questions. The Spellbook is over 200 total followers already, so I'm a bit late... Despite much advertising (as much as I could do within the time constraints I had), there's only two questions as of the time of this post, so here we go: Moya asks: "...what makes you particularly attached...

Demon Slayer Corps (Collab): Kimetsu no Yaiba 1 – Tragedy Strikes

It’s time for another collab, this time with Plyasm and Moya alongside Astral and myself. We’re currently 2 eps behind – people are probably going to blame me and my trip, but Astral got himself into yet another pickle. To be honest with you though, I did have the ability to watch ep 3 during said trip, but at 2 am (i.e. I ended up sleeping through it).

Despite all this, we’ll have ourselves up to speed on this in no time though, right…Right…?

The Moyatorium

Surprise! It’s a first impression discussion post near the end of April! But it was a fun discussion, so I hope you enjoy reading it to some extent. I like to babble sometimes, but there shall be no babbling because the following post is quite long. Like, twice as long as any post I’ve ever published!

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

Ufotable did a good job, but…the CGI was a bit obvious in spots.

Very very nice introduction to everything we can expect from Kimetsu no Yaiba. Most of the things we get are snippets of what to expect, but they are more than enough to get a good overview. There’s the intense action sequence, the great OST, the generally smooth animations with sprinkles of 3DCGI that in this particular episode…

The Changing Nature of the Rewatch

Inspired by an old comment I gave Karandi. Much like the reason I read manga changes over time, the nature of why I rewatch things has changed as well. My set of "'why I rewatch things' categories" differ to Karandi's for the most part, so let's begin: The Rewatch to Experience Again Well...the idea for... Continue Reading →

King’s Game – Narcissism or Parody?

The thing about King’s Game is that it’s written by Nobuaki Kanazawa, through the eyes of a Nobuaki Kanazawa. Coincidence? I think not! Disclaimer: I dropped King’s Game after one episode and do not intend to watch more of it just to justify my opinions on this post, so if there is any more evidence... Continue Reading →

Awkward Moments of an Anime Fan

I think we’ve all been there at some point or another…plus, we can afford to loosen up for a little bit, can’t we? Reciting strange localised names. This one’s a personal anecdote, but I’m sure you’ve all had a situation like this… When one of your favourite anime has an English name like Cute High... Continue Reading →

Rebooting and Reloading

There are soft reboots and hard reboots…and then the tough-to-categorise reboots… I honestly haven’t followed Lupin III that long – I knew he existed because of his team ups with Detective Conan and a MAME game, but I didn’t really care about him until Part 4 came to Crunchyroll and even then I didn’t care...

Colour Theory, Round 2: DanMachi

For those who didn’t see it, round 1 involves Madoka Magica. It was so well-received I took the concept for a spin again… DanMachi’s use of colour isn’t as striking as, say, Concrete Revolutio or Prince of Stride (which have their identities formed partially out of their striking use of colour) but it’s still interesting...
