An Analysis of Voltron’s Cast (Part Two) — 02/03/2018

An Analysis of Voltron’s Cast (Part Two)

I had a lot of fun writing part one, and it received fairly well, so here you have the other three characters I will be talking about.

Luckily I don’t have much else to say before diving right into this one, since it’s part two, so let’s just get right into this one.

An Analysis of Voltron’s Cast (Part One) — 01/30/2018

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.

Power is Great and All…Mob Psycho 100 and The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.’s take on psychic powers — 12/16/2017

Power is Great and All…Mob Psycho 100 and The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.’s take on psychic powers

Hello again! I know this is a day late, but my time after work went a lot differently yesterday than I expected, so this is just going to have to do. I’ve been doing well with my 30 Day Anime Challenge posts, so I’ll give myself a pass on this. I still wanted to get this post out, though.

I don’t think I’ve ever written such a lengthy title before, and you’re probably wondering why I’m smushing two shows into one post. I’ve never done that before, and I never thought I would.

Top 10 Male Anime Characters — 07/16/2017

Top 10 Male Anime Characters

I did a top 10 of female characters a while back with the full intention of doing this post immediately after, but I guess I forgot about it. Well, here it is now. I’ll have to say this list was much easier to compile than Top 10 Female Anime Characters, for reasons I’m somewhat ashamed of. I’ve realized that when I become attached to a male character, they tend to have one or more of the following traits: short stature, short temper, and blond hair. Which almost every character on this list falls into.

[OWLS Blog Tour: “TEAM”] Crona Gorgon: Soul Eater — 06/22/2017

[OWLS Blog Tour: “TEAM”] Crona Gorgon: Soul Eater

This is my very first OWLS blog post! I’ve been very excited to join this group of wonderful, kind people for a long time, and the time has finally come for me to be a true part of the group.

When given the topic of the month: “Team” in regards of the LGBT+ community, it took me a while to decide on what I would be talking about. I’m very new to the community, so my spectrum isn’t very large. I can count on one hand the number of shows/comics I’ve read or watching dealing with this community. So, I decided to talk about something that wasn’t very expected.

Top 10 Female Anime Characters — 05/22/2017

Top 10 Female Anime Characters

I’m sorry for the long wait (2 months to be exact), I was finishing up classes these past couple weeks so I’ve had other things on my mind. It should be more frequent from now on.

I can always appreciate when an anime can make a female character right. There are too many that use the girls of anime as fanservice or give them a cardboard personality. All of the girls I have chosen for this list are not fanservice characters, and have great character qualities. I tried to get a variety from anime I watched a while ago and more recent ones. I’ve noticed I tend to talk about the same shows constantly, so I’m trying to mix it up a bit if I can.

My Favorite Anime Couples — 02/14/2017

My Favorite Anime Couples

I figured that in honor of Valentine’s Day I would share some of my favorite pairings in anime. I understand that this is a somewhat touchy subject for some, if their favorite isn’t on here, or if I ship a character with someone different that what they feel. But I knew I would talk about it at some point, so why not now? Understand that I will not make fun of any person’s pairing preferences, as long as I don’t get any nasty comments. Thank you, we are all fans of the same fanbase. Be nice! 🙂 Continue reading

My Thoughts On: Yuri!!! on ICE Episodes 7-12 — 01/28/2017

My Thoughts On: Yuri!!! on ICE Episodes 7-12

I finished this show last night at about 1:40 am. I was determined to finish it so I could write this, but I was also reluctant because that would mean I couldn’t watch it for the first time anymore.

This show exceeded all expectations I had. I’d heard about it sometime in early October before it was aired. I read the description, but it didn’t strike me as something I would love to watch. I would see posts about it on Twitter for months, but I generally ignored it all. Then in December, my friend decided to start it and convinced me to watch it. I didn’t start it until the beginning of this month, but once I did, I knew I made the right decision.
