Why is Back Arrow So Fun?

Squeezing this in just before Mecha March. I have professed I'm not the biggest fan of mech anime. However, in the past few years, I've been paying attention to them more. Partially, that is the fault of a certain mech-loving anime club media manager, but because the seasonal circuit makes you sit up and pay... Continue Reading →

Anime Valentine’s DLC Pt 2

Even I didn't expect there would be a part 2 until I finished all the Valentines... Part 1 here. So, from part 1, you already know how I made the base design. However, after seeing some other Valentines on my Twitter feed, I was inspired to make the rest of the HypMic divisions...meaning I had... Continue Reading →

Anime Valentine’s DLC

This is part of Jon's server event. K occasionally has a "DLC" post to show how things went behind the scenes, hence the name of the post. Basically, I spent a few hours over 2 days perfecting these and almost threw everything out at one point because I was worried people would take the lines... Continue Reading →

Why is Ex-Arm so Horrible?

The question is...why... Continue Reading →

A Criminally Underserved Niche

As inspired by a small rant I had in Scott's comment section. You know what I want? An anime about coding and/or hacking. Not Hollywood hacking, like Akudama Drive's Hacker does (warning: TV Tropes link)...a faithful version of it. I know, I know...no Japanese anime studio is ever going to stumble across a blog in...

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 →

A Magical 2020

Like 2019, I'll leave a number at the end of the name of the work to indicate which month I finished each entry in. 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 →
