Alright, I know. We've all seen endless content regarding Goblin Slayer. It's 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 … Continue reading On Goblin Slayer and Morality: It’s Fine?
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 which I previously thought … Continue reading On Trying to Create Quality Content
I've been wanting to write something like this for a long-ish time now. However, like most other things, I have been unable to find the words to express it in a way that both makes sense to me, and to those of you reading. Well... saying that, I don't know if it will make sense, … 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 'Ichigo Controversy?' People … 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
What do first episodes achieve? In its most simplistic form, it hooks the viewer into the show. After all, this is its mission; it has to make people want to view the next episode, and the next. For the more people you have viewing your show, the more popular it is, and ultimately, the more … Continue reading Anime: The Art of First Episodes
The following are some of my favourite pieces of media, grouped into one glowing list of graciousness! From them, I derive not just entertainment, but also concrete meaning and personal connection to things that would otherwise seem mightily far away. Things I may never have come to understand myself. Each of us have pieces we … Continue reading Stand-out Media – Across All Mediums
I'd be lying if I said I don't absolutely love NEW GAME! (My review of S1) It's one of those shows I instantly fell in love with. This - for the most part - is down to its brilliant characters. There's isn't a single one I don't like. Each of them serve a purpose in … Continue reading The Relatability of Hifumi – NEW GAME!
