What I Watched in December 2018 (Recommendations and Reviews for Anime and Manga)

I had a realisatoin after looking at my anime history this month -I've not watched any anime's in the last two weeks! So I might not have as much to talk about this time. That being said I did finish a lot of shows that I had been watching over the course of the year … Continue reading What I Watched in December 2018 (Recommendations and Reviews for Anime and Manga)

Burning the Tents – The Broken Tournament – Chapter 22

If you're new to this story you can catch up with the prelude here. Sorry for taking so long to update this, once you see how cringey this chapter is you might see why! Anyway the story so far (because you probably need it): Our adventurers have got back from following some illegal cheaters at … Continue reading Burning the Tents – The Broken Tournament – Chapter 22

What are These Books I’ve Been Writing?

In the 2 years of anime blogging post I wrote yesterday I had some pretty vague targets in "Release all of "The Broken Tournament" and self-publish it, Release "The Stone of the Conqueror", Finish writing "The Monks of Meres"" as targets for next year. These are the books I've working on lately and they all … Continue reading What are These Books I’ve Been Writing?

Why I Love Gantz’s Manga – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 12!

Happy Christmas all of you! I hope that you're having a lovely Christmas day! Now let's talk about Gantz's manga because it's great. Here's why. I like being able to read through manga insanely quickly. I don't think we should be coming to manga for book reading. The art is the main appeal for me … Continue reading Why I Love Gantz’s Manga – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 12!

The Ghibli Cellist – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 11

Perhaps Ghibli's Gauche the Cellist (film) is overlooked by too many people. First of all theirs the idea that Ghibli didn't even make it and it was made by the studio before they called themselves Ghibli, but MAL list Gauche on the list of Ghibli creations so that's good enough for me. It's not a … Continue reading The Ghibli Cellist – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 11

Liar Game got Solved! – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 10

The ending of Liar Game might not be great however I'm glad the game ended like this. Essentially in the last game they reduce themselves to a stalemate where neither side can win. This is when the employees start wondering just how long they'll have to be there and start walking out causing the competition … Continue reading Liar Game got Solved! – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 10

Misaki – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 9

One of the anime's I watched this year was Welcome to the NHK which is actually a really great show. NHK is an abbreviation where the letters only match in Japanese meaning "Japanese Hikikomori Association" so essentially our main character Sato believes he's in a mass conspiracy which makes him stay indoors for good. It's … Continue reading Misaki – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 9

The Value of Reading Anime News Sites

Hajime No Ippo Date Eiji – 12 Days of Anime Christmas day 8

Hajime no ippo is a really good series whether you like boxing or not however some of the best fights that it has are to do with the side characters, this one in particular who I will be talking about is Date Eiji because I thought he was really cool! So Date Eiji enters the … Continue reading Hajime No Ippo Date Eiji – 12 Days of Anime Christmas day 8

“I’ve got a Confession to Make” – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 7

"Confessions" is a manga written by Fukumoto Noboyuki but drawn by another person who draws with a different art style. Fukumoto's art style is iconic and excellent however I can only assume that it was to create a different tone that he switched artist. Which to be honest was a good choice. Confessions opens with … Continue reading “I’ve got a Confession to Make” – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 7

Netflix’s Castlevania ep 2 – Trevor Belmont

With the completion of this episode we are now halfway through the first season! Which is pretty strange considering  not a lot has happened. I've sort of given up the idea that this will be relevant to the games at all since it's not really setting anything up to go that way. After getting beat … Continue reading Netflix’s Castlevania ep 2 – Trevor Belmont

DMC Krauser is Crazy – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 6

If you haven't seen Detroit Metal City you're in for a treat. It's a hilarious comedy about a normal dude who has to pretend to be a demon into crazy heavy metal music even though it goes against his nature. But when he does change into his performer he becomes Krauser who is crazy. Also … Continue reading DMC Krauser is Crazy – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 6

One Hell of a Moon Mission – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 5

Perhaps one of my most tense and enjoyable moment from anime this year was when I watched space brothers and specifically Hibito's moon mission. Previously I didn't spoil all of this but now I will talk about absolutely everything that went down that day since it was just so good to watch. So Hibito and … Continue reading One Hell of a Moon Mission – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 5

Netflix’s Castlevania ep 1 – When’s Simon Belmont going to show up?

So yesterday I talked about the idea of getting a new 2D Berserk anime made by the guys who created this castlevania anime. So it only made sense to me to actually review the castlevania show to see if I'd actually want these guys to create the next Berserk. It's only 4 episodes long so … Continue reading Netflix’s Castlevania ep 1 – When’s Simon Belmont going to show up?

Bad ass Akagi Moments! – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 4

Thank you very much for sticking around with my 12 days of anime Christmas.

Now then I've been re-watching Akagi this year so I … Continue reading Bad ass Akagi Moments! – 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 4

I Love Berserk 1997 For It’s Age, Not Despite It

With talk about the possibility of a new 2D Berserk adaptation coming to Netflix how could I not talk about my thoughts? After all Berserk 1997 is my favourite anime. First of all I just want to say that of course I want this to actually happen, of course I want a 2D Berserk anime, … Continue reading I Love Berserk 1997 For It’s Age, Not Despite It

12 Days of Anime Christmas – I’ve done it again! Day 2!!!!

No not again! How could I let this happen! Right now theirs only one day left of the last day of anime Christmas and so far no posts have been written, so essentially I've left it too late again, which sucks sort of!

Netflix has a Kaiji Live Action Spin Off!

Something that I always thought would be interesting would be a live-action spin off of one of my favourite shows of all time Kaiji ultimate survivor. Well it turns out that one actually exists! While prying through the anime news network archives looking for interviews with my favourite mangaka Fukumoto Noboyuki I instead happened upon … Continue reading Netflix has a Kaiji Live Action Spin Off!

We Should Ban Loli/Shota Hentai

Hey it's the subject which makes absolutely everyone horribly uncomfortable and disgusted. Did you miss it? I know I didn't! But as disgusted as thinking about loli/shota porn makes me, I've had some thoughts that I feel like I should say. So here they are! Regardless of your stance on the side of the debate … Continue reading We Should Ban Loli/Shota Hentai

Why I Rented “Your Butt Fetish is a Pain in My Ass” Volume 1

Recently on the way to lectures I found that someone had actually used my contact form on my website. A certain SUSUMU TAKAYANAGI whose name is written in all caps for some reason telling me about his legal manga website. He basically offered me an affiliate link to use so that when other people buy … Continue reading Why I Rented “Your Butt Fetish is a Pain in My Ass” Volume 1

What I watched in November (Recommendations and Reviews for Anime and Manga)

This might be a big one since this is the month where the post "I watched 24 hours of anime" was came out. Yeah. Tonnes of episode ones that I'll never revisit. Mirai Mirai is the new Momorou Hosoda film and I watched it in cinema's on it's release date!
