Recently I've just got super smash bros ultimate for the Nintendo switch so I thought I'd talk about what I want the last 3 fighters to be since there are only three unannounced in the dlc fighter pack so far. Professor Layton This is an iconic character who I've grown up with playing all of … Continue reading Characters I Want in Smash Ultimate
On the 3rd of January 2019 anime news network put out a paid advertisement for a movie advertising the cult "happy science" and it caused some outrage. After realizing their mistake they removed it on the same day it was up. This was actually being written while the post was still up and has now … Continue reading Anime News Network Released Cult Propaganda? What Happened on 3rd of January 2019
Now that we've had the manga it's time for the anime! I must also put in the disclaimer that I think all of these are really good and the order of things is really hard to narrow down because some I like equally. This was a very difficult list to make! 12 - When Marnie … Continue reading Top 12 Anime I Watched in 2018!
It's time for the annual posts talking about the top 12 manga I read in 2018! Reading manga is quite a struggle for me and last year it wasn't even possible to make this list since I probably didn't even read 12 manga's in that year! But now that I have it's time to talk … Continue reading Top 12 Manga I read in 2018!
Yesterday I watched wolf children and loved it a lot. It was a really nice watch. Now that I've finished this film it means I've seen every Mamorou Hosoda film that's not part of a different franchise (so everything except the two digimon films and one piece movie 6) and I have to say I … Continue reading I Really Enjoyed Wolf Children
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)
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
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?
Hey today marks my blogs 2nd anniversary which means I've been blogging for a very long time! It's been a really great journey and I want to thank everyone for sticking with me for it! So I've talked about a lot of things I would talk about here in my 250 followers and stat showcase … Continue reading 2 Years of Blogging!
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!
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
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
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
Thank you very much for the tag A Nerdy Perspective! The only time I find it easy to be funny is in a conversation so this is definitely going to go well! The rules: Accept and thank your challenger(s) by linking back to their post. Make a post of one-sentence summaries / roasts of at … Continue reading One Liner Tag Challenge Thing – Anime Version Edition Attempt Number 0
I recently started reading anime news network and it's good, really good actually. So I thought I'd explain why I like it so much and also try and convince you to maybe check it out if your interested! All sources of facts and information will be from ANN. You won't care about most of it … Continue reading The Value of Reading Anime News Sites
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
"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
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
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
If you are a fairly big anime fan I'd be surprised if you didn't know what mahjong was. A lot of shows have games of mahjong in them and it's normally when you find yourself being insanely confused to a point that you don't understand what's going on. So this is what the tiles look … Continue reading I’ve joined a Mahjong Club!
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
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?
Thank you very much for sticking around with my 12 days of anime Christmas. Even though I am writing this one at 11pm with 1 hour left before the days over I'm actually writing this for tomorrow's day instead since it's already looking pretty busy! 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
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
Phew welcome to day 3 of the 12 days of anime Christmas, I hope you're excited! Historically I have used this challenge to talk about my most emotional moments from the favourite shows that I have watched specifically within that year. So naturally I had to talk about barefoot Gen considering it impacted me so … Continue reading Barefoot Gen Is Non-fiction and Why That Means Something – 12 Days of Anime Christmas
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! But who can blame me really, it's been a pretty hectic day … Continue reading 12 Days of Anime Christmas – I’ve done it again! Day 2!!!!
Oh no what have I done!! It's the 12 days of anime Christmas, theirs 2hrs 15mins left of the 1st day and I have absolutely no clue about anything that I want to talk about oh nooooo!! Anyway I guess I'm doing this now, thank you to Rose for reminding me! Try this post about death … Continue reading 12 Days of Anime Christmas Day 1 – AHHHHHHHHHHHH! Saint Young Men I guess
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!
There are lots of weird and obscure genre's of Anime and Manga so I thought it would be fun to explain what they are and learn what they even are myself for a lot of them! Also I will be giving popular examples. They won't be anything that I recommend just what MAL recommends, though … Continue reading Obscure Anime/Manga Genres
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
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

This is the last post of the top ten series finally. This list has been the most difficult to come up with because these are the posts I care the most about, have spent the most time on and am the most passionate about. I call these passion projects because they are blog posts or … Continue reading 700 Blog Posts! Top 10 Passion Projects!
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! Yeah that shows just how … Continue reading What I watched in November (Recommendations and Reviews for Anime and Manga)
Hi we're back with the series where I talk about my favourite posts. If you missed the last one you can find it here! 10. Why you should be on My Anime List (2 Years on MAL) This post gets the number 10 spot just for it's information and trying to convince people to get … Continue reading 700 Posts: Top ten Anime Posts I’ve written
The biggest problem for me in breath of the wild is the combat, which is one of the most fundamental parts of the game - depending on how you play. I'll start with the most accepted thing before going into the things that are probably more specific to me. The enemy variety is absolutely abysmal. … Continue reading Combat Sucks In Zelda Breath Of The Wild
That's right, it's been a long (nearly) two years but in that time I have made an amazingly huge amount of posts and thanks to Arthifis I'm making a top ten list for each of the posts that I've made. But since some of my posts are so different then I'm doing a couple of … Continue reading I’ve made 700 posts! Here’s my top 9 personal posts!
I recently passed a milestone in the number of posts that I've written on my blog (no spoilers for what that milestone was yet - if you really want to know go to my Twitter) so I've been looking back across everything I've written to compile posts that I really liked the most into a … Continue reading The Blog Posts I Wanted To Be The Best
This film is not for the faint of heart, after all, it's about a little kids during the war before and after Hiroshima. Naturally it's such a depressing and sad watch. But in addition to that sadness is a very compelling story that is just horrifically fascinating to see. The opening of the film is … Continue reading Barefoot Gen is Such a Good Film
Over 5 months ago now I pre-ordered Dark Souls remastered for the Nintendo switch and it only just arrived in the last couple of weeks! Which means I've been playing it a lot. I was a bit worried purchasing DSR at first because I had the worry that I might start playing, get too frustrated, … Continue reading Dark Souls Remastered – or Why I Haven’t been Blogging Lately
The title is no lie, I actually did watch 24 hours of anime yesterday. Let me explain. At my university we have an anime society and theirs this event once a year where we watch anime for 24 hours for charity - Where they ask the members to give money to watch anime. We started … Continue reading Yesterday I watched 24 hours of anime
Hey guys yesterday I went to the release of Mirai - The new film by Mamorou Hosoda - so I thought I'd give some brief thoughts now. Right now its 8:39 am for me and I've not slept - more on the reasons why in another post - right now lets talk about the film. … Continue reading Mirai
This is quite an odd one to end Halloween with, but it's a happy one at that. We've spent the whole month thinking about how cool spooky stuff is that we've forgotten about the good things in life. Congratulations Rahul, you did us all proud, really good job. Now here are some funny Rahul memes … Continue reading Fake it until you bake it
How did it happen that it's already in Halloween! I feel like I'm in a Junji Ito world and every moment and week is passing by instantly. This won't be the last halloween post however, I've still got one lined up after this! One mans nightmare can be another mans dream, something that sounds so … Continue reading One mans nightmare
It's that time of the month again and it feels like it's gone way too quickly. The series that I'm watching lately are pretty huge. Monster is 74 episodes and Space brothers is 99. While I got close to finishing space brothers it still won't be done until next month and monster, you might have … Continue reading What I watched in October (Recommendations and Reviews for anime and manga)
It now seems clear to me that Junji Ito is not happy with doing things that are generic, even if theirs something that's already been done before he will always throw a twist or two. This isn't just because he wants to be original but theirs an element of horror and fear that is lost … Continue reading Junji Ito – Clubhouse / House of Friends / Gang House
Junji Ito's story of the Ice Cream Bus is so good for how creepy it is. Ito often draws his horror from very basic and ordinary things, then extending them to the extreme or obsession to make them scary. The story follows a single parent father taking custody of his younger son and an ice … Continue reading Junji Ito – Ice Cream Bus
A lot of people sigh at things like I'm doing such as only talking about horror for a whole month of the year, it means 1/12 of my months are horror related when there are so many other genre's to dedicate a month to. For example I've hardly seen any mecha (though Evangelion might count … Continue reading Why Talking About Halloween Spooky Scary Bullshit is Important to Me
Got 2 one shots for you this time! Long Dream This one shot by Junji Ito was just great. It was scary, had crazy art and was really entertaining and interesting as well as scary. The ideas about death were what made the story so fascinating to me it was crazy. We start fairly innocently … Continue reading Junji Ito – Long Dream and The Story of The Mysterious Tunnel
It's been like 10 days since I last wrote a post here, sorry. I've been busy with constant work lately and I find myself rarely thinking about my blog, after Halloween there should be a bit of a reset where I can actually work more. That's sort of a shame though because It means I … Continue reading Junji Ito – Ghost Heights Management
When you think of legendary comedy Great Teacher Onizuka horror is not what first springs to mind. However it features a horror story which has been very influential to a lot of people I know. Here's why. The Horror Story (How I remember it - not copying the shows version) A man was walking home … Continue reading How A Horror Story from GTO Influenced So Many People I know
I regret to say that this will be the last episode review of monster that I will do in the lead up to Halloween. It's not that I don't love the show, quite the opposite in fact. It's just hard to motivate yourself to watch the show if you know you have to write a … Continue reading Monster Chapter 3 – A Murder
Instead of just giving you a 'monster' episode review for the lead up to Halloween I thought it would instead be more interesting to have a mix of things. So instead of just reviewing those episodes I'll also be talking about OVA's, films and manga's as well as other full season anime reviews like the … Continue reading Tomie OVA Review
To correct a mistake from the previous review Monster calls episodes chapters meaning each episode is equal to a chapter. This means we're on the second chapter of the 74 episode story. Lots of exciting things are still yet to happen! Our episode continues taking place directly after the previous with Tenma operating on the … Continue reading Monster Chapter 2 – Downfall
In the lead up to Halloween I thought it would be fun to cover a good horror anime episode by episode until October 31st much like I did last year with Shiki. Monster and Shiki are both fantastic horrors so I highly recommend that you watch them. With monster being 74 episodes long I don't … Continue reading Monster ep 1 – Dr Tenma
One night could lead to many things. One night could feel like a year. One night could change everything. Night is short, walk on girl is a great summation of everything this film is about. It takes place over the course of the same night and things get progressively stranger and more interesting. It feels like … Continue reading Night is Short, Walk on Girl
I thought it would be fun to talk about the shows I watch episode by episode weekly. My thoughts on the ancient magus bride are pretty controversial however I think my criticisms are valid enough that even fans of the show would understand where I'm coming from. The very obvious first thing is the visuals … Continue reading The Ancient Magus Bride Ep 1&2 Review
This month has been really busy for me so don't be surprised if this list is fairly short, I might also touch on shows that I've mentioned before but never talked about since then. Basically my whole life has changed since going to University and you don't often think about anime when theirs a million … Continue reading What I Watched in September 2018 (Recommendations and reviews of anime and manga)
As some of you may know I'm at University now and believe it or not it's difficult to blog when you're whole life completely changes! Things are still settling down so blogging should hopefully continue soon! At my University there was a place set up where posters were on sale. I saw a tonne of … Continue reading I Got Some Ghibli Posters!
This is not to say that I'm quitting blogging. Even if I did there would still be projects uncompleted that I would force myself to complete due to a strong attachment to them so it wouldn't truly be over. Basically I've left home and gone to University so I don't have a lot of free … Continue reading End of an Era
Now that the anime database has been completed I'll be moving on to something else. Wait, no, that's not true. The ADB is far from over and there is still plenty of work to do for it. For example there aren't a lot of links in the "recommended post" section that work because the post … Continue reading So What Now?
Here is the whole database of anime that I wrote in February, the project is finally complete so here is every single review in case you wanted to read the whole thing without going through every single post. It is unformatted and just short reviews which are a small part of the overall project. Interestingly … Continue reading The Anime Database (All Entries)

Welcome back to yet another "what I watched", I'm going to recommend you some anime and manga that I read this month now! Ponpoko This film is about talking raccoons fighting against humans to protect their home, and as soon as I heard that premise I immediately started watching! What I got wasn't that exactly … Continue reading What I Watched in August (Recommendations and Reviews for anime and manga)
Recently I've been reading this crazy messed up manga called dead tube which I was really enjoying until it introduced a story trope which I hate: Which one of us is the killer? This story tends to take place on a place where everyone knows each other and nobody can escape. Often a ship in … Continue reading Which One Of Us Is The Killer – A Story Trope I Tend To Hate
So I went on holiday recently and thought I'd talk about it! The place I went to was Peterborough for Soul Survivor week B. It's essentially a field in the middle of nowhere where people go with their churches to pitch up tents and learn about/worship Jesus. Before you immediately vomit and leave I want … Continue reading Soul Survivor – Holy Spirit or Crowd Manipulation?
Monty Python's Life of Brian is such a funny and hilarious film that follows Brian, a person who many people confuse with the messiah in the same time period of Jesus. The moment that the people thought he was a messiah was so funny that it caused me to laugh so loudly that everyone in … Continue reading What if People Thought You Were the Messiah? – Life Of Brian
I recently got the chance to watch the last jedi for free so I took up that chance and watched it on a huge projector type screen, with many other people, in a field in the middle of nowhere. I went in sort of knowing I would enjoy it, because I had watched a lot … Continue reading The Last Jedi Ruined Everything, was good though
I really like flawed characters, there is something so sad and relatable about them that you just can't help but love them! Honorable mentions - Killua, Griffith, Caska and Killua 7. Guts - Berserk The only reason why Guts is on the bottom of this list is because I already talked about him in the … Continue reading Top 7 Flawed Anime Characters!
Wait hold on a minute, haven't you been writing constantly about how boring is the worst thing ever? How can it be perfect and vice versa? Well in the very specific example of anime characters perfection is boring in my opinion of course. I would like you now to think of your favorite anime character, … Continue reading Perfection IS Boring – Good and Bad Anime Characters
What is the worst thing an anime can be? Well I guess the worst thing an anime could be is something that brainwashes you, drives you to suicide or hypnotizes you into doing terrible acts of violence. That should be obvious, but assuming the anime doesn't do that (like 100% of all anime (hopefully and … Continue reading Boring IS the worst
Hey guys Ross here, I'm off on holiday for like a week or something! I'll be in the middle of nowhere with a group of friends at a festival in the UK which is where I live. I'm sure it will be a great time! But the internet signal and battery life tends to be … Continue reading See you later!
Oh yeah we're continuing this line of discussion from my fairly controversial post Don't watch bad anime! These followups need to continue because there have been points that I've taken for granted that people would get when in retrospect that wasn't really clear at all. So what even is a bad or boring anime? If … Continue reading What Even is A Bad or Boring Anime?
Today was the results day for those A-level exams I talked about ages ago. It was extremely nerve-wracking. I did something that maybe wasn't such a good idea which was only apply to universities with a really high grade requirement. My first choice was AAB and second was ABB. So yeah. Anyway results day came … Continue reading A Huge Relief
That's right I am now in the brotherhood of the world! Thank you to a nerdy perspective for nominating me! She has an amazing blog which I greatly recommend!

(AWARD)
This post is a response to the previous which can be found here. You should read that first to understand what's going on in this post. Yesterday I said don't watch bad anime and to that I got a mixed response but on the whole the majority agreed with a few exceptions which they told … Continue reading Don’t Watch Boring Anime, Watch Anime You Enjoy Watching
But what anime is bad anime? Well as far as this post goes an anime is bad if you don't like it, so when I say bad anime I just mean a show you don't like. Also I want to thank TimeForWriting11 for this post idea in my comments, while we may disagree on … Continue reading Do Not Watch Bad Anime

In a lot of my favorite manga there is often a game involved which the protagonist will play against villains, and it would surprise you just how often these games come from simple origins. By adding extra rules it achieves two great things. It becomes easier to understand since everyone already knows the basic rules … Continue reading How A Simple Game Can Be Made So Tense and Terrifying In Anime and Manga – Musical Chairs (Liar Game)

Both Kaiji and Liar game are very similar shows in the fact that they feature gambling however the nature of the characters and … Continue reading Friendship and Betrayal in Kaiji and Liar Game
Here we are back at it again with watching random shows from Crunchy Roll! Yeah! Everything here will be entirely random and all shows are randomly selected using CR's random button.

I've already done the tag however her post (which you should check out) gave me a fun idea for a new story of my own that I could write. So here is that story! When the sun shone beautifully on a relaxing … Continue reading Very Short Story – “I Want A Friend”
Pressing random on CrunchyRoll can bring up some pretty funny results. So I thought that I might try writing a post about random titles that I found through pressing the random button!

That's right I' m back with reviewing Liar Game arcs! The contraband game was too confusing for me to comment on (though I really did enjoy it) and I didn't want to review the second revival game arc because it was too similar to the live action version which I had already reviewed. The sad … Continue reading Liar Game – Pandemic Game Arc Review (Round IV Qualifier Round)
I am a touch-typer so every time I change to a new keyboard everything feels a little bit different and takes a while getting used to so I thought that I would just have a long post where I typed about anything just so that I can feel ok quickly using the keyboard. For the … Continue reading New Keyboard/How To Touch Type/ Updates/Ebook/bonus story/The Stone of The Conqueror/ADB Finishing/Broken Tournament Thoughts/Random Typing On Many Subjects For The Sake of It/Ramble
I feel like I've not watched any anime at all this month, and that's basically true, the only anime I finished this month was Saiki season 2 (which I covered last month but hadn't seen the final three episodes) and that means that every single anime on this list is a movie! That's right all … Continue reading What I Watched In July 2018 (Recommendations and Reviews for Anime and Manga)
If you’re new to this story then you can catch up here with the prelude. Our story so far: The characters have been given evidence that this tournament may be rigged, however they are still unsure.

I was tagged ages ago for this challenge by Pete Davison whose blog is worth checking out! (so do that). I've not been a follower for long but I like this post the most. Link back to the original post on Anime Q and A so they can check out everyone’s picks! Use the ‘Build A Harem’ … Continue reading The “Build a Harem” Tag – Extreme Dere Edition
I thought it was about time to sharpen my pencil again and draw a few more pictures. Some of these took more time than others! Chitoge - Nisekoi The main thing to worry about here is that the size of the head is a lot smaller than it should be. I probably did this because … Continue reading Drawing Some Anime As If This Was A Different Series
Thank you to everyone who submitted questions for the Q&A! And thanks again for 200 followers. It has to be Kuroki Tomoko who can make me laugh easily without trying. Yes she's cringey but I find that sort of thing funny. Other series' are a lot funnier but I think she is the most funny … Continue reading 200 Followers Q&A
I really like the idea of the create a story tag so I'm basically starting joining it now without being tagged because it looks like fun. From TPAB's post it looks like this is something you can just join, you don't have to be tagged! (but it helps) Rules! You pick your first word, your … Continue reading The Create a Story Tag: Fall + Mountain + Comedy
This post is nothing but an out of context video https://youtu.be/yS47FEziER8
If you're new to this story then you can catch up here with the prelude. Our story so far: Rick, Maron and Kil have arrived at the kings tournament where the winner is decided by how well they can fist fight. Rick is preparing for his first fight. It was time to fight, and … Continue reading The Brutal First Fist Fight – The Broken Tournament – Chapter 12
If you're new to this story then you can catch up here with the prelude. This is another short one, I've been cutting these down a lot! Our Story So Far: Rick, Kil and Maron have arrived at the kings Tournament. They have wondered, argued and witnessed vile crimes or tragic accidents. Now they make … Continue reading The Matchups – The Broken Tournament – Chapter 11
Hey guys thank you so much for 200 followers! The support on this blog has been great and I really love the community here. So where do I go here? I guess I'll keep on writing, I feel like my post quality has been suffering recently (since the ADB's aren't brilliant in my opinion) so … Continue reading 200 Followers Thank You So Much!
If you're new to this story then you can catch up here with the prelude. Sorry for the short chapter, they say that in editing you're supposed to cut a story down to make it shorter instead of adding detail to make it bigger. In fact this is the first time I reduced the words … Continue reading The Tournament Grounds – The Broken Tournament – Chapter 10
If you're new to this story then you can catch up here with the prelude. Sorry for not releasing these for ages, I'll aim to release one of these a day until I get them released because I don't want this huge project lingering over my head! This also means hopefully following the story will … Continue reading Taltree – The Broken Tournament – Chapter 9
Pokemon Go has very recently introduced a friendship system to the game where you can actually trade with friends. My first idea here was to go to all of my friends who had completely given up on the game to trade me all of their good stuff. That didn't actually go through so well sadly... … Continue reading Pokemon GO Review – Friendship System (Part 3/16)
If you are coming to this with no idea who Ninja sex party (NSP) are then I'm sorry, and you're welcome. NSP is a band made of two members. The first is Ninja Brian, a guy with god like reflexes, quick temper and immense ninja ability. He's often seen killing people, playing keyboard and getting … Continue reading What is Ninja Sex Party? I Talk About My Favourite Comedy Band!
Instead of drawing something new I thought that it would be interesting to see how much I could change a previously drawn image with colored pencils and pens. So I've made edits to some and thought I'd present it in a before and after format. Before After I made an adjustment of going over it … Continue reading Redrawing My Manga As If It Was Slightly Different
A day or so ago I revealed a hidden secret that I hadn't been keeping up with blogging at all for over a month. After pretty much writing just one post I feel back in the game and more ready and enthusiastic to return. So maybe now I can talk about what to avoid if … Continue reading How To Get Back Into Blogging If You’ve Been Out Of The Loop For A While
So first of all I want to address the fact that I've not read or written a blog post in around 5 weeks. I'm sorry. I've had exams, two holidays and theirs a huge heat wave that is making me so tired I hardly want to do anything. It's not really an excuse at all … Continue reading Middle Manager Tonegawa ep 1 Review
My exams covered about half of this month and there was a holiday right at the end meaning I didn't watch too much, however there was still a week of pure nothing meaning that maybe I watched more than I thought! Trigun I enjoyed Triguns episodes even though I ended up dropping the show in … Continue reading What I Watched in June 2018 (recommendations and reviews for anime and manga)
Since this is a review of the second chapter of the guardians of desire arc it's recommended that you read the previous one so that you can understand this post. We open the chapter directly after the previous, with Vargas, an ex-physician who got brutally mutilated, offering him the behelit in exchange for killing the … Continue reading Berserk is the Greatest Manga of All Time: Chapter 4
This is a short story I randomly wrote for no real reason because I was bored. I was maybe thinking of using it as a backstory for one of the characters in another story I'm doing. The forest had been looping around him in circles; the traveller became more confused and confused as he slouched … Continue reading A Tree in the Forest
I span the wheel of terrible manga and landed on Moka from Rosario Vampire, thank you to Lita Kino for adding the suggestion to the wheel! If you want me to draw your manga as if it was terrible then leave a comment bellow! I don't think this is too bad really. The main issues … Continue reading Drawing Your Manga As If It Was Terrible: Moka from Rosario Vampire
As of a day or two ago someone has been releasing my posts online while pretending to be me, thinking I won't notice if they put my post there and back through google translate or badly change the grammar. Well I have noticed and please stop. I can't find a way to contact you but … Continue reading Please Don’t Plagiarize me
Yeah we're continuing with this series, where we go through all of the berserk chapters until the golden age arc starts, because I really like that early stuff as well! It's funny to me to have the start of a huge arc at the very end of volume one, where chapter 3 takes place. The … Continue reading Berserk Is The Greatest Manga of All Time: Chapter 3
Thank you to a nerdy perspective for the tag, she has a really great blog which I highly recommend checking out if you haven't already! RULES: 1. Mention the person who nominated you 2. List 13 reasons why you keep going/living (This is borrowed from the book but I’m taking it the opposite direction). 3. Nominate 10 or … Continue reading My Reasons Why Tag
16 months ago I put out a review in a "what I watched" post about Princess Mononoke saying it was boring and a waste of time. Now having watched it a few days ago I disagree with that because I really enjoyed the film! And with that it brings the number of Ghibli films I … Continue reading Well I Was Wrong About Princess Mononoke!
In the space of the last two weeks I've had all of my exams and I can now relax forever. I've basically been ignoring all of you in that time, I've not read a blog post in ages, but considering the circumstances I hope you don't mind! Two years ago for my exams I did … Continue reading My Exams Are Over, I’m Pretty Happy About That.
A while ago I watched the wind rises and filmed a commentary track for it! I would not recommend watching with the track on for the first time but if you fancy a re-watch of the film you may want to listen to it! I wasn't particularly impressed with the film and enjoyed airing my … Continue reading The Wind Rises Commentary
Here we are! It's the last day of music week and this one is a treat! Probably my favourite song of all time. I love it for the peaceful tranquility it communicates in a world of terror and war known as Midland. If you ever see me with my headphones on chances are I'm listening … Continue reading Music Week – Gattsu (Theme of Guts)
It's very easy to make a song, especially when you literally use nothing but cords in a very easy and predictable sequence. I hope you like it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZK-RTT9eLY
On the 2nd day of music week we had the song of healing. Now it's the song of unhealing which is the song of healing backwards. Why release a song which is the same as another only backwards? Well it sounds great! Also it's a huge part of the Ben drowned creepy pasta which is … Continue reading Music Week – Song of Unhealing
Here is the next installment in Music week, there is a big theme of Zelda songs here. That's because I'm a huge fan of Zelda and learned a lot of Zelda songs at the time for fun. Sorry because this one has a few errors in it that I can't phase out of my head, … Continue reading Music Week – Song of Storms Piano Cover
Here is my piano cover for the Song of Healing from the legend of Zelda Majora's mask. This is one of my favourite Zelda songs! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35Wwcc37RjU I hope you enjoy!
Ever since I started this two posts a day thing I've been worried about the actual thing that I've been scheduling things ahead for. Exams. Since this is a huge week for exams I'm doing a week of posts that are very easy to make because I'm just sharing things I've already made. I can … Continue reading Music Week – Saria’s Song/Lost Woods Theme Piano
I mean this post had to happen at some point because I needed to explain myself before starting a series that will be beginning next week. Next week I will be releasing a post of day of music covers for piano songs, all from my YouTube channel. And that's where the key point lies. My … Continue reading What was Hentai Wednesdays?
Welcome to the 2nd part of my thorough review of Pokémon Go where I discuss every aspect of the app to answer "should you play this game". Sorry for the long wait, I want to review this game before it completely dies in popularity so let's get right too it! Part one can be found … Continue reading Pokémon Go Review – Nicknames are Everything (Part 2/16)
I watched all of Heavens Lost Property and thought that it was alright. Then I see a huge video series by Syy called a love letters to heavens lost property where he convincingly describes why this show is his favourite anime and I get his perspective. If you're thinking of watching the show then I … Continue reading Sora No Otoshimono/Heavens Lost Property Volume 1 Review
Things are really beginning to take shape now that a new story line was added this episode. I thought this episode may be a much needed extra story so that we had more than two teams against each other. Ryouu was starting to have a monopoly and it would have been good to have multiple … Continue reading Doreiku ep 4 – The Appearance of Ryouu Sama!
Chapter 2 "The Brand" is the 2nd part of the three story arcs before going to the golden age arc and it's interesting that after this review we will already be 2/3 of the way through the stories. Chapter 1 "The Black Swordsman" is a huge chapter and is 90 pages long and chapter 2 … Continue reading Berserk Is The Greatest Manga of All Time: Chapter 2
There is no English name listed for this show on my anime list but the Japanese title (Layton Mystery Tanteisha: Katri no Nazotoki File) roughly translates to "Layton Detective Agency - Katrielle's Mystery Files" but I don't like that so much so Laytons Mystery Journey it is! It sounds like the game too. In the … Continue reading Laytons Mystery Journey ep 1 – The Haunted House Case
Yeah we're back to doing this again! I've skipped the contraband game for now and we're on to this because we've not only got a review but comparisons to the live action version to make! I really love this arc in the manga because it takes something completely random and puts predictability to it in … Continue reading Liar Game Manga – 24 Round Russian Roulette Review
I love the Berserk manga a lot and I thought it would be really interesting to dissect everything in the chapter. In the past I did a thing like this for chapter 1 and 2 but would like to continue it for the chapters leading up to the flashback. I just think that there is … Continue reading Berserk Is The Greatest Manga of All Time: Chapter 1
I'm getting a lot of smash vibes from this show even though this show is nothing like a fighting game. But it's because of the story of the subspace emissary. The subspace emissary was a story mode of smash brothers where all the characters would start in their own individual area, and then slowly meet … Continue reading Doreiku ep 3 – Super Smash Bros for Slavery
This post has been a pretty big annoyance to do because My anime list is currently down and I wanted to get this out on the last day of the month. I use MAL to see my anime watch history so I don't have to track it for myself so this will be from memory. … Continue reading What I watched in May 2018! (Recommendations for Anime and Manga)
Some of the people in this show are just apologetically dick heads and I sort of find that interesting. It's scary to see what terrible people can do to others and how messed up some people can be. This episode was about a girl who loved a guy in a host club, The host was … Continue reading Dorei-Ku episode two – Scumbags
Woah a new switch pokemon just got released out of nowhere! We don't have a lot of information but I thought as an extremely intense and avid pokemon go player I would throw my opinion in. At first I was highly opposed to the idea of throwing a pokeball with a joycon to catch something … Continue reading Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee (Pokemon Go Review Part 1.5/16)
So the finale of the arc is here at last and everything is coming to a close! So I can now conclude my opinions of liar game once and for all, but how was this episode? Stationary Russian roulette sounds stupid but it's way more interesting once it's explained. There is a roulette with 4 … Continue reading Liar Game S2 EP 4 – The Conclusion Of Everything!
Because I had a lot of submissions I thought I would let the wheel decide which one I drew! https://youtu.be/GfnsVCH3XcQ Looks like there was blackout part way through but I couldn't be bothered to render it again to get rid of the effect. What I've noticed is that the level of art in Vagabond is … Continue reading Drawing Your Manga As If It Was Terrible: Vagabond
I really loved this episode of the show, I think it's incredibly messed up and unethical which is what makes it interesting to me. This show is about a world on the cusp of a terrifying technology and I'm interested to see how this works in the "real" world with all the different people who … Continue reading Dorei-ku The Animation Ep 1 – The Most Terrifying Technology
In the last episode review I made some predictions about how the game would take place and I was fairly happy with my predictions all things considered, and everything that I made that was wrong was oddly convenient and/or stupid. The first thing was, the deck is changed every time! If I knew this everything … Continue reading Liar Game S2 EP 3 – The Conclusion of 17 Poker!
Here we are again, drawing your manga as if it was terrible! Comment which manga you would like to see me attempt to recreate and accidentally destroy! This time it's Astro boy, thank you to thespookyredhead for recommending it. These drawings and panels are taken from the first three chapters of the original manga. #1 … Continue reading Drawing Your Manga As If It Was Terrible: Astro Boy
At the end of the last episode they said that their was a twist which was a trap that fell into a game and I said that wouldn't really be possible. But that's because I didn't know that the LGT took the money when it came to a draw. Obviously if both players know what … Continue reading Liar Game S2 Ep2 – The Start of 17 Poker!
I thought that I might review the next arc in one whole post, but then episode one turned out to be one hour long! So I don't want to write what will probably be 2.5 hours of watch time into one post! This is the first episode I'm watching without reading the same thing in … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action S2 ep 1 – 1 Hour Long Pilot!
Hello. I can't draw. But I tried anyway. I thought it would be fun to hand draw pictures that I found in manga using them as reference material. Since I can't draw it's a fun way to draw something that looks passable while not needing too much effort. The only rule is that if I … Continue reading Drawing Your Manga As If It Was Terrible: Boku Girl, Black Paradox and Mystery Manga!
Hey instead of writing about episode 11 and 12 individually I sort of skipped them because they were both recap episodes! You really don't need two recap episodes in a 13 episode show, it was just overkill. They disguised the recap by introducing a new character who was told the events as they happened. It … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action eps 11-13
This arc has been completely ruined by the show. I said it in the last episode and I'm saying it again, this arc sucks now. All of the betraying has been cut and everything's been changed to simplify it. So the first betrayal with Yokias clairvoyance worked out fine but then everything was made bad … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action ep 10 – Destroying Their Own Arc
I didn't think the producers could really mess this show up very much, because I think the strange charm of the story could work. But they messed it all up again! First of all they messed up the easiest thing which was the setting. Instead of giving us a normal airport like the one in … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action ep 9 – Start of the Contraband Game
