Words, Emotions, and the Complexity of the Human Heart

It's Day 3 of the 12 Days of Anime Blogging extravaganza. While thinking about what to write for this one, I went back and took a look at some of the shows I watched this year. Many were forgettable, some were decent, and a few shows this year have been real gems. However, today, I …

Boarding School Juliet – First Impressions

While not nearly as enthusiastically as several of the previous picks, I must say, I did enjoy this first episode of Boarding School Juliet. Taking the basic "forbidden love" concept of the original Romeo and Juliet story, and twisting it into a high-school comedy, the first episode alone opens with a number of colorful and …

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai – First Impressions

Well, this show seems to have come out of nowhere, at least for me. I've heard almost nothing about it prior to this season, and so went into this first episode completely blind. I was somewhat apprehensive about what to expect, given the name of the show... but I must say, i'm pleasantly surprised. Rascal …

Spring 2017 Wrap-Up: Season’s Watchlist

Well, Spring 2018 was definitely an interesting season. A lot of shows started out strong, a lot got stronger as the season went on... and quite a few fizzled out half way. I'm a bit late on this, considering that the Summer season has already begun. However, i've finally finished up the Spring season. Honestly, …

After much dilly-dally, including a one-week hiatus, we’ve finally gotten to the finale! Will this collab end with a bang or with a whimper? Aria: I was going to jump in here, but Astral still has some stuff he’d like to say. Something about Machiavellian theory...? Astral: Happy, Happy! Well, I had quite a bit …

Pocket Picks #10 – Magical Lolis!?

Well... This is an interesting one here, and please don't think badly of me for the suggestion. For the longest time, I was hesitant to watch this show, as it seemed a bit... outside my comfort zone. A friend finally convinced me to give it a watch, however, and though I honestly feel like i'll …

Spellbooks and Horoscopes – Boueibu Happy Kiss! Episode 11

Astral: Well now, that was an interesting episode this week, wasn’t it? Some good, some bad, and honestly, I have quite a bit to talk about, which may end up being quite the wall of text. So before I take over, what did you think about the episode? Aria: I don’t think it was the …
