‘A Silent Voice’ is An Excellent Film

I have found in the past that writing a long review talking about the film in chronological order is unhelpful to a lot of people because they can get insanely long and people don’t have the time or the patience to read it all, so now I’m switching my style to talk about specific things … Continue reading ‘A Silent Voice’ is An Excellent Film

How Berserk 2016 Completely Misses the Point of Berserk Manga

From the previous part we established that the main appeal of Berserk wasn’t the crazy intense action scenes and more the great story, personality and history of Guts. I would absolutely not consider Berserk an action manga. This is where the main differences between the three versions of Berserk become apparent. Berserk 2016 looks like … Continue reading How Berserk 2016 Completely Misses the Point of Berserk Manga

Berserk: How To Introduce A Great Character

Recently I’ve become a huge fan of the massively popular manga named Berserk. Due to this, after reading the first few volumes I tried watching both anime’s of it up until the point where they catch up with where the manga left off. The reason why I can say that I like the manga Berserk … Continue reading Berserk: How To Introduce A Great Character

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.

The Appeal Of Harem Anime (part 6)

If you’ve been keeping up with the harem saga that I’ve been writing then you may feel like I dislike harems. This was never my intention, as there are many harems that I enjoy (for the longest time two of my favourite shows we’re “Nisekoi” and “Seto No Hanayome” – both harems). As well as … Continue reading The Appeal Of Harem Anime (part 6)

The Importance Of Good Story in Harem Anime (part 5)

I’ve said before in previous posts that even if the characters aren’t great, fleshed out, developed or made to interact well then the situation, plot or ideas of the anime can save the show. Though for harem shows I believe that statement to be completely theoretical because I don’t know any anime that have won … Continue reading The Importance Of Good Story in Harem Anime (part 5)

Why Anime Harem’s Work (part 4)

I started writing about harems ever since re-watching school days (which I didn’t like) and it got me thinking about how harems can work. Reflecting on that I realised that most harems shouldn’t work as you see them in anime, after all how many harems have you seen work in real life? I’d guess none. … Continue reading Why Anime Harem’s Work (part 4)

Good Waifus In Harems (part 3)

Saying that a character is good is all subjective depending on what you want from an anime or what your standard of good characters is. Therefore I wouldn’t be surprised if some people say that they enjoy tropes, after all, tropes only exist because the audience lets them exist, if nobody liked the trope then … Continue reading Good Waifus In Harems (part 3)
