I've finally found an anime that comes off similar to a novel/flick from the golden yet seemingly distant days of middle school, named Nicholas Sparks' A Walk To Remember, which tells the story of an outgoing, popular boy falling in love with a shy, distant Protestant girl despite their initially rocky start. And the anime … Continue reading Anime Review #95: I Want To Eat Your Pancreas

Anime Review #84: Azumanga Daioh
Back at you with another standard Anime Review, and to make things direct I'm going to be looking at Lucky Star! Wait, that doesn't sound right - I already reviewed that series way back in the blog's early stages, when I didn't have much time nor a coherent writing style to go about and analyze … Continue reading Anime Review #84: Azumanga Daioh
Anime Review #75: K-On!
So yeah, last July I watched all two seasons of K-On! - you know, that show about five girls who spend their after-school days drinking tea and playing with musical instruments. While in the midst of watching this show's first season, I asked the question on Twitter: "Why is everything and everyone in K-On so … Continue reading Anime Review #75: K-On!
Anime Review #74: Angel Beats

As the year wraps up, for the second month in a … Continue reading East Meets West #12: Your Name .vs. 17 Again
Anime Review #67: Hyouka
Anyone who's been to my Twitter is probably aware about how highly in regard I hold Hyouka. Indeed, I'm quite the promoter when it comes to this high school mystery series, and I've been on record retweeting stills of certain characters from this show, liking a bunch of photogenic posts associated with it, promoting this … Continue reading Anime Review #67: Hyouka
The Traditional Catholic Weeb Speaks: Close Encounter With A Rukia Fangirl
Logistical reasons aside, the reason why, to this day, I refuse to watch Bleach is because I have a forlorn hate for Rukia Kuchiki, the show's female protagonist; despite the fact that I have never been able to stomach a single full episode or season. You might wonder why this might be the case. Well: … Continue reading The Traditional Catholic Weeb Speaks: Close Encounter With A Rukia Fangirl
