January 2017 – What I watched

As a fun idea I thought that for every month I might write a review/ recap of all the anime and manga that I read/watched this January to comment and review everything instead of dedicating too many shows to an individual post. Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor – All episodes This is by my favourite show I’ve … Continue reading January 2017 – What I watched

How Anime Makes Bad Villains

Through my adventure of trying to binge read one piece (I’m on chapter 575 if anyone’s keeping track) I’ve noticed one recurring theme that I dislike and it’s been bothering me for such a long time that I’ve started noticing it in other shows as well. That thing is bad villains and a whole lot … Continue reading How Anime Makes Bad Villains

The Appeal Of Sports Anime (Why you should watch even if you’re not a sports fan)

I feel that it’s quite safe to say that not a lot of anime fans also like sports. Besides the mainstream sports shows I feel that most shows are overlooked by many fans, some of whom disregard the genre completely without giving it any thoughts. As the creators of most sports anime appreciate that a … Continue reading The Appeal Of Sports Anime (Why you should watch even if you’re not a sports fan)

What I Want From Anime: Good Cliffhangers

A somewhat weird thing to want, I do admit however I feel like it’s quite an easy thing to justify. Having watching anime for a long time I’ve not felt hooked into a show for a while, there’s plenty of shows that I enjoyed just not any that I was motivated to finish quickly. For … Continue reading What I Want From Anime: Good Cliffhangers

Masamune-Kun’s Revenge Yoshino Theory

I thought of this idea immediately after watching episode three of this anime. I have not read ahead in the manga and I don’t know if this has already happened or will happen in the story so potential spoilers. As well as this, my theory may change the way you view the show for the … Continue reading Masamune-Kun’s Revenge Yoshino Theory

A Better Deconstruction Of The Harem Genre?

School days is great if you want a deconstruction of the harem genre however I fell like there's better. For example, in early 2016 I started writing a book in the harem genre, it aimed to explain why the harem happened whilst not delivering the typical story that most harem fans are used too. I … Continue reading A Better Deconstruction Of The Harem Genre?

Sports Anime and Real Life: Tournament Arcs vs League tables

Let’s talk about football tournaments: there’s not very many of them which are popular.  Theirs obviously the world cup, champion’s league, FA cup and EFL cup (I only looked up for UK – where I live) but not many others. Even saying these, the world cup and champions league both have league tables at the … Continue reading Sports Anime and Real Life: Tournament Arcs vs League tables

Sports Anime’s Are Better Than Real Sports

This may seem a bit nerdy however I think watching sports anime is better than watching actual sport. Heck, if you don’t even like anime, watching sports films is better than watching real sport. First I feel it’s important to explain how sports anime is nothing like watching sports. Writing this was inspired by one … Continue reading Sports Anime’s Are Better Than Real Sports

Moe Comedies: Lucky Star, Nichijou, Yuru Yuri

Do you ever want to like something so badly that you feel ashamed that you don’t actually like it? For me that thing is Moe comedies. When I talk about moe comedies I think about things like “Yuru Yuri”, “Luckystar” and “Nichijou”: Very respected and beloved comedies with a moe comedy aspect. These are the … Continue reading Moe Comedies: Lucky Star, Nichijou, Yuru Yuri

School Days: A Christmas Anime

  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8gf1eaB5Pg&t=139s Christmas animes are actually quite rare, most of the time if an anime does have a Christmas episode it doesn’t often include a Christmas feeling. You know, like in those Christmas feel good movies. Whilst school days doesn’t have a Christmas episode it starts from day one of the school year to a … Continue reading School Days: A Christmas Anime
