I’ve been reading a lot of shoujo manga lately and it made me realise there’s one particular reason manga works so well. A good manga is one that you can devour volumes of quickly and then ask for more of, right? As I’ve been reading one volume of manga after another, I came to the... Continue Reading →
Geddit? "Hot Spirits"? Senku in Dr Stone wants to make brandy?...Okay, my jokes are getting more terrible as I continue these summer premieres...Previously, I watched Sacred Beasts, Astra, Maou-sama Retry! and UchiMusume. This post has Fire Force, Dr Stone, Granbelm and Ensemble Stars. I'll be skipping the recap of DanMachi (I saw s1 at the start of the... Continue Reading →
Turns out I didn't need to worry - Funimation and my regional service are together again and providing less buffering than Crunchyroll.This post contains Sacred Beasts, Astra, Maou-sama Retry! and UchiMusume. Next up is Fire Force, Dr Stone, Granbelm and Ensemble Stars. I'll be skipping the recap of DanMachi (I saw s1 at the start of... Continue Reading →
More like "Being Tanjiro is suffering"...if you're a few episodes ahead, I think you'll know why. I have some good news: Ply was able to bring himself back to the collab. I'll let him speak for himself when it's his turn again (if he wants to), though, since we've all got things we're dealing with.... Continue Reading →
If this prompt looks like it’s a bit different to the usual, that’s because Lyn didn’t write it – I pitched it to her. So, here’s the prompt for this month, with the theme of “technology”: For this month’s topic, we will be discussing how technology impacts our relationships with others and how it improves...

Inspired by Cactus Matt's list. These are ranked by likelihood of happening (as of their stats as I type this post, so the 6th of July 2019 in my timezone) and personal preference for what I want adapted as a tiebreaker. If I haven't stated in the discussion where it's available from, you'll see that... Continue Reading →
Again, I've forgotten to go back and recap my season until it's too late... Spring 2019 was pretty great for me, so I still don't quite understand rumblings this was a terrible season. At this point, you know the drill: best to worst. I'm still missing a few episodes so I'll put down my episode... Continue Reading →
On this episode of the Demon /Sayer/ Corps, Moya realises how out of her element she is, Astral sucks at haiku, Ply is completely absent…and as for me? That’s the punchline – I don’t want to spoil it.
Hihi! Happy July. We’re slowly catching up with this show, isn’t that neat?
- Purple = Aria (Officially the team coordinator by now)
Green = Plyasm (Passed out for some reason)
- Blue = Astral (Surgery recoveree and Nezuko slave)
- Red = Me (I got a [second] job! We’ll see how it goes…)
1. What are your general thoughts on this episode?[Mandatory]
I’m pretty happy with what I got, as always.
Any episode with action is a good episode in my book. The quality/intensity of fights only goes up from here on out, so there’s plenty to look forward to.
I’m not enthusiastic about fights with evil subordinates, so only a few moments got my attention. I fast-forwarded 5-10 seconds whenever a character started spouting unnecessary comments mid-battle.
2. Did the episode fit your expectations, and in which ways did it differ from it? (If it does) [Mandatory]
Yup. (It’s not a…

This is a bit off course for me, since I shy away from doing reviews in the first place. Jenn's post on reviews made me think - is a number rating (or a letter rating from A+ to E-, or even an F-) to end a review really necessary? The standard practice is that yes, you... Continue Reading →
