Morose Mononokean: The Least Expected Second Season

I was discussing with Karandi how Morose Mononokean needed another season…and then one fell into my lap. Well, at least I ain’t complainin’. Why is the show so good?

Google Translates My Favourite Manga

Inspired by this bookish post by Reader Voracious and the previous one by Fictionally Sam. Bloghopping can sometimes take you into territory you think you'd never get to...and that's why we're here.

Lately I've only been watching new episodes of the 90s version to... Continue Reading →

Fall 2018 Retrospective

I was thinking about what to write during my update post, but amidst my backlog worries, I forgot the wrap-up post!
