Improvement through Love: Yuri!!! on Ice

I can’t avoid talking about this show more. With getting the Blu Ray last week and seeing all of the figure skating from the Olympics these past two weeks, this anime has been nagging in the back of my mind, and I’ve realized a lot of things while rewatching it.

Plus with Valentine’s Day being Wednesday, I had to do something in honor of it, even if my initial plan fell through. I’ll be combining the topics of competition (the theme of OWLS this month), and the theme love shown throughout the anime.

[OWLS Blog Tour: Competition] Is it Really the Best to Be “The Best”?: My Hero Academia — 02/09/2018

[OWLS Blog Tour: Competition] Is it Really the Best to Be “The Best”?: My Hero Academia

Welcome to another OWLS post! This will be my eighth OWLS post, isn’t that insane? I still remember my excitement when I became a member and scheduled my very first OWLS post, back in June. I’ve also been able to contribute every month so far. There hasn’t been a topic too hard to completely block me, and for that I’m grateful and proud of myself.

If you aren’t aware of our group, we are a team of bloggers and vloggers, focused on bringing awareness to important topics in life represented in pop culture. We are accepting of everyone regardless of race, gender, sexuality, etc.

In honor of the 2018 Winter Olympics, this month topic will focus on the theme, “Competition” because the Olympics is where athletes from all countries join together to compete in sporting events. Through these events, we see how “competition” brings out the grit, the teamwork, and the competitive spirit within athletes. This month, we will be exploring anime and pop culture media that discusses the good and the bad when it comes to competition and what it can teach us about ourselves and the world around us.

Thank you Lyn for the wonderful topic as always!

An Analysis of Voltron’s Cast (Part One)

I said during my 30 Day Anime Challenge back in December that I had a post in mind for this show, and here it is. I really like doing character analysis posts, since I think about this stuff a lot, but they take a lot more time to write than a review. Hence why there’s a real lack of them on my blog.

You should be able to read this post as long as you have an idea of what the show is about, and I won’t be giving any sort of summary to save on length.

My Thoughts On: Haikyu!! Season 2

I’ll start this out by apologizing for being late in posting this. I had most of it ready on Thursday, but I ended up not finishing it up and I was going to make my last changes yesterday, but I spent the time I would have worked on this getting my hair done, so it had to be postponed until today.

Apologies over.

In the months I’ve been watching this anime, I’ve learned some things. For one, I learned more than I ever wanted to know about volleyball, and I could hold an intellectual discussion on the sport with no problems. Another thing is, it’s one of those shows that is hard to like in a casual way. I thought I’d only like it a little bit, but even from those first couple episodes, I realized that would not be the case. It doesn’t help that the fanbase is huge and very much active.

Review: SERVAMP — 01/16/2018

Review: SERVAMP

Hello! Welcome to my very first Tuesday post. If you weren’t aware, I’ll be changing my posting schedule from once a week on Friday, to twice a week on Tuesday and Friday. I felt like I was missing out on a lot of posts I wanted to do just going with once a week, since by the time I’d get to it, I would have already come up with something else to do.

But enough of that, on to the review.
