A Place Further than the Universe has taken the Winter of 2018 by storm. Though... not from the get go. It is something which has crept up on all of us. Rallying over the weeks, as its MAL score grew and grew to something which its cute girl aesthetic never foreshadowed at the beginning … Continue reading A Place Further Than the Universe: Love and Loss, and Friends
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
Darling in the Franxx is without a doubt one of Winter 2017's top shows. A co-production between Trigger and A-1 Pictures - two hugely respected studios; Trigger putting out cult shows such as Kill la Kill, Little Witch Academia, and it's founders Hiroyuki Imaishi and Masahiko Ohtsuka, coming from Gainax, with shows like Gurren Lagann … Continue reading Darling in the Franxx: First Impressions Fever
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.

Barakamon originally aired its twelve episodes during the Summer of 2014. The show is brought to us by animation … Continue reading Barakamon – Anime REVIEW!
Alright... alright, I'm a little late with KonoSuba. It's one of those shows I'd been meaning to watch for a long while now - one I never got around to. Of course, that was my mistake, because it is absolutely brilliant in so, so many ways. KonoSuba has invariably gained what can only be described … Continue reading KonoSuba – Anime REVIEW!
Admittedly, I hadn't even heard of NEW GAME! until recently... something which surprised me, because of my penchant for both games and anime - what could be a better mix, right? Exactly! And, now I'm sat here wondering why I hadn't watched it sooner, why I hadn't experienced its awesomeness months ago when it first aired last year. … Continue reading New Game! (S1) – Anime REVIEW!
Fellow blogger, Psychime (give him some love!) recommended Koi Kaze to me. And, I'm very glad he did so! Fair warning, this is gonna be a long one. Hang in there with me! An In-Depth Look at Koi Kaze Ah, where do I start... finding a relevant place is hard... Broadly, Koi … Continue reading Koi Kaze: Rational Taboo
