Anime Harems – How They Hook YOU! (Part 11)

Kaiji – The Future Is In Our Hands

In a similar style to Mother's Basement's "what's in an OP?" series I've always wanted to talk about anime openings and endings and now here's my chance with a really brilliant song which is near and dear to my heart: Mirai wa bokura no te no naka.

Anime Harems Can’t Fell Earned (mostly) – part 7

9 months ago I started a series where I looked in depth at the harem genre. It was the first ever posts that I made and I always felt that the series was incomplete despite the fact that I felt more things needed to be said.
