Review: K-On!

I like to think of myself as someone with pretty thick skin. Not in the sense that I’m an emotionless person who’s too manly to cry and devoid of empathy. What I mean is, it’s generally really hard to hurt my feelings. But I can’t lie on the internet (it’s the law), so I’ll be…

Round-Up: Summer 2019

One of my favorite things to do in the world is work really hard at not working, and this new series is a direct reflection of all that hard not work ethic. I asked myself the question “Why would you make a different post for every pilot when you could simply put them all in…

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai

The setting is summer 2018. My friend and I are looking at the titles that have been announced for the soon-to-begin fall 2018 anime season. It was then that we came across Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (青春ブタ野郎はバニーガール先輩の夢を見ない). It seemed like a joke; they couldn’t be serious about that title, right? (Side…

Review: The Rising of the Shield Hero

It was always one of the highlights for Friday anime, especially after a particularly sad episode of Fruits Basket (2019) (and you better believe I…

Review: The Saga of Tanya the Evil

Since I’ve started watching anime, I’ve come to know and accept one thing about myself: I am isekai trash. There’s something about the genre that strikes a chord with me. I don’t care if the show carries the most basic of plots (at least so far; don’t hold me accountable for this later. I’m living…

Review: Your Lie in April

This month, as it is April, I decided to take part of a rewatch for the anime Your Lie in April (四月は君の嘘). For anyone who is unfamiliar with the /r/anime subreddit on Reddit (or for any who simply don’t frequent it), they do regular rewatches of anime. It’s essentially a way for a bunch of…
