Asexuals and Aromantics in Anime and Manga

...it's still the 29th of October where I am as I write this. It's the end of Ace Week, but depending on your definition of "where your week ends", you may still have more than enough time to read this. You were probably thinking, "Hey, no Halloween post this year?" There is one, if you... Continue Reading →

I Am a Cat Barista: Short But Sweet, with a Bit of Whiplash to Serve

The main gripe I have about the series I Am a Cat Barista, based on its first volume, isn't its setup. (It's basically Rokuhoudou's with a giant cat-man, so don't fix what ain't broke, amirite?) It's the fact the chapters are too short, so they leave you wanting! Once the treat of the day is... Continue Reading →

Anime and Manga Budget Buys – eBay Style

Now that I've wandered eBay and started trying to offload books and unwanted anime discs there, I have some eBay-specific updates to this ol' OWLS post. On eBay, as with other content on a budget, remember to keep your eyes out for signs the content is pirated, such as "rainbow stripes" where the photocopier failed... Continue Reading →

What Makes Ya Boy Kongming Tick?

Ancient Chinese history bores me, to be honest - all that stuff about war strategy and tradition is more my dad's domain. Despite that, I love it - which is... Continue Reading →

Manga March (5): Toritan

Last manga for this month! How did I do? Toritan's a BL but it's rather harmless...at least, from the one volume I have of it. "So what's it about?" Inusaki, a detective in name but a bit of a bum in occupation terms, can talk with birds.He saves a bird from a crow one time.Soon... Continue Reading →

Manga March (4): 7th Garden

I've been wanting to talk about this title for a while, but I never find the right opportunity for it... 7th Garden is oddly compelling because it sets up a deeply religious world and then proceeds to tear it down. That said, since it deals in religion so much, it constantly crosses the idea of... Continue Reading →

Manga March 2022 (2): To Your Eternity

Note I have discussed the manga in some capacity here already. Based on everything I know of her so far, I think Yoshitoki Oima is a creative genius. ...I might come back to eat my words one day, when I lose myself in a negative headspace again and then rediscover my passion for blogging, but...
