Domestic Girlfriend (Domestic na Kanojo) is one of Winter 2018/19’s most controversial shows, and unlike Shield Hero, maybe it deserves its reputation. Its content certainly isn’t suitable for everyone. At times, even I was uncomfortable, and I spent an entire day last year watching Koi Kaze… Domestic Girlfriend definitely isn’t the easiest show to watch, by … Continue reading Domestic Girlfriend Analysis: It’s All Fine!
I have played thousands of hours of Battlefield. Somehow my first experience with the franchise was through probably its most revered game, Battlefield 2. Something which unnerves me slightly, considering I'm only twenty-two now... Since then, I've played every game in varying amounts. My favourite being the bluesy tones of Battlefield 3. Many an hour … Continue reading Battlefield V: TTK and The Issue of Community Influence
Conception, a Fall/Autumn 2018 anime... that's fallen below standard in just about every way. Now, for the purposes of this post, I partook in what I can only describe as a good hour and a half of self-flagellation - why? Because this is what it takes, and I though Conception's reception might be the product … Continue reading Conception: Completely Pointless Anime
Goblin Slayer is Just One of Those Shows... One of those shows that stirs up the pot, gets in nice and hot, bubbling. I mean, surely that entices everyone, right? I don't have a problem with Goblin Slayer - I'm not saying it's a brilliant show by any stretch of the imagination, but I certainly … Continue reading On Goblin Slayer and Morality: It’s Fine?
Quality Content, What? How? I live a somewhat sheltered life, I always have, and in many respects I think I always will. I don't really know people. That is to say, I don't really understand people - not as well as I would like. This is something I've realised in the last two years, something … Continue reading On Trying to Create Quality Content
I don't know what to call this... a monologue on enjoyment, on motivation, and writing; all loosely linked to anime in some way or the other, and my often strange experiences with it. I've been wanting to write something like this for a long-ish time now. However, like most other things, I have been unable … Continue reading Anime: Enjoyment, Motivation, and Writing
I don't usually get caught up in the more fickle sides of the anime community, and the places they reside on social media. However, episode 14's 'Ichigo Controversy' has spread over into my abodes like a wild, vicious, unscrupulous parasite, latching onto and polluting everything it comes into contact with... the Episode 14 'Ichigo … Continue reading Darling in the Franxx: Episode 14… Insanity
This is something I have been deliberating over for a rather significant amount of time now, so here goes: Within the anime community I feel there is a trend, this need to analyse every single frame of media; almost as if anime (or media in general) exists for this reason alone, and anything without so-called … Continue reading Anime: Overanalyzing – Current Climate of Content
I'll preface this discussion by saying I rarely watch Yuri. Not because I have an aversion to it - or feel anything inherently negative towards it. Only, Yuri is something that rarely ever comes to the surface in my anime watching habits; for whatever reason that may be. With this in mind, I have few … Continue reading In ‘Defense’ of… Citrus and the Ecchi Genre
Everyone's heart is caught by the charisma of our favourite NEET, MMO Junkie's Moriko Morioka. She's sweet, she's awkward, but most of all, she's simply a likeable person. There are always certain characters we're able to identify with. Not necessarily because we're the same as they are, but because there are parts of them that resemble … Continue reading Recovery of an MMO Junkie: LOVE – Moriko Morioka
