New Game Anime Hifumi Relatability essay

The Relatability of Hifumi – NEW GAME!

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 [...]

Nekopara thoughts from a lonely cynic

Nekopara – Thoughts From A Lonely Cynic

Nekopara - The 'Catgirl' Visual Novel Nekopara, is something of an... enigma. Not because it is the best VN's have to offer, though I do find it certainly isn't the worst... But because, it fills a niche. After all, where else do you get to open up a bakery with a loyal troupe of your [...]

Attack on Titan Season 2 Boring mediocrity

Attack on Titan Season 2 – Failing to Stand Out

Unpopular opinion incoming: I do not particularly like Attack on Titan (Season 2 especially...) HERESY! You say...! And, you might be right. Maybe... Currently AoT stands with a score of 8.69 on MAL.

Spirited away studio ghibli youth

Spirited Away, Studio Ghibli, and Youth

As far as I know, Studio Ghibli's Spirited Away was the very first anime I watched. Well... maybe that's not strictly true. When I was a kid, there was Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh. But... I'm inclined not to include them. For what better place to start than with Ghibli and its auteur Hayao Miyazaki. I'll start [...]

The attraction of Eromanga Sensei anime

The ‘Attraction’ of Eromanga Sensei

  Eromanga Sensei - Entertainment? I'll admit it, I... enjoy Eromanga Sensei. However, I don't think - in any sense - it's a great show...  it probably isn't even a good one. And yet, it keeps pulling me back after each episode... for a reason that is slightly lost on me. Almost as if it shouldn't [...]
