Anime Review #90: Cowboy Bebop

Anime Review #90: Cowboy Bebop

I first heard of this anime about four years ago when, at a friend's house gathering, the question was discussed about what shows would be great to recommend for someone who would like to get started in anime - to be more specific, someone's girlfriend at the time - and it developed into "What flick … Continue reading Anime Review #90: Cowboy Bebop

The Anti-Modernist Academia #3: Denying Supernatural Facts Is The Root Of All Modernism

The Anti-Modernist Academia #3: Denying Supernatural Facts Is The Root Of All Modernism

The world we live in was, morally speaking, far different from that of 70 years ago. The existence of God, as discerned by the study of the material world, His Providence, and the sacredness of His rules were the guiding force which led society's lifestyle, law, and behaviour with little opposition. Places like Quebec, Ireland, … Continue reading The Anti-Modernist Academia #3: Denying Supernatural Facts Is The Root Of All Modernism

Anime Review #89: Madoka Magica – Rebellion

Anime Review #89: Madoka Magica – Rebellion

At Puella Magi Madoka Magica's closing arc, Madoka managed to vanquish Kyubey's energy-incubation system, which took advantage of magical girls' despair to preserve the world. In doing so, she makes a supreme act of self-oblation, achieving a status of divinity and using that to rewrite the universe so that magical girls don't exist, and witches … Continue reading Anime Review #89: Madoka Magica – Rebellion

I'm going to do something different today, especially after writing multiple posts reviewing anime and various reflections on certain characters with regards to the Catholic themes surrounding them. This time, I'm going to go back on a more personal note and talk about anime music! More than a year ago I wrote a list detailing … Continue reading The Traditional Catholic Weeb Speaks: My 12 Favourite Anime OPs, Revisited

Anime Review #88: F-Zero – Legend Of Falcon

Anime Review #88: F-Zero – Legend Of Falcon

I used to intern for a small software company in Toronto for 16 months from 2017-18 following my third year of university, and there are several things I miss about it. The office building was located near a Catholic parish which offered the Traditional Latin Mass, so on some weekday mornings and evenings I'd have … Continue reading Anime Review #88: F-Zero – Legend Of Falcon

East Meets West #22: Children Who Chase Lost Voices .vs. Journey To The Center Of The Earth

East Meets West #22: Children Who Chase Lost Voices .vs. Journey To The Center Of The Earth

Jules Verne, the famous 19th-century French author of science-fiction, is not a name foreign to me. As a kid, I used to watch the clumsy 2004 adaptation of one of his stories, Around The World In 80 Days, which featured martial artist Jackie Chan and actor Steve Coogan travelling across Europe, Asia and North America … Continue reading East Meets West #22: Children Who Chase Lost Voices .vs. Journey To The Center Of The Earth
