I write this on the eve of October, the month of bewitching and spirits, of mischief and horrors, of tricks and treats. The cold weather slithers down from the cascading mountains as an impenetrable fog, trees shed their vivid sanguine foliage, and monsters begin to dance at the peripheral of our mind’s eye, just beyond… Continue reading HORROR ANIME(or at least festive)
The My Hero Academia movie was FANTASTIC. Just finished it a few hours ago, and if you have the opportunity and are a fan, do yourself a favor and see it with an audience where all the fans squee at their favorite hero introduction and shout during the final moments of the movie… hype… we… Continue reading My Hero Academia Movie

I can’t wait to watch this on the 19th! I REALLY enjoyed Haikyuu!! and was chomping at the bit for more, so to see my scrappy crows fighting the great white eagle himself on the big screen with a bunch of nerds should be awesome! Gonna see it with two buddies. I encourage all anime… Continue reading HAIKYUU!! THE MOVIE: BATTLE OF CONCEPTS! Playing(hopefully) at a movie theater near you!!!(I hope)
However, that said… I JUST STARTED WATCHING IT AND FINISHED IT!!! Late to the party, and WAY PAST fashionable!

The violence is brutal, but it is NOT gratuitous, it MATTERS,… Continue reading Re:Zero, Holy CRAP this show is good…
THANK GOD I’M BACK!!!!!! Also found out I’m approximately ~1% Japanese(one of those genetic tests)… I hope the circumstances, surrounding this ancient genetic inheritance, were…. favorable…. But that explains my adoration for anime! That 1% went a long way! 😀 thanks ancestors! Or should I say ARIGATO… Also, found out a bunch of co-workers are… Continue reading BACK FROM L.A.!!! AND ANIME IN THE WORK PLACE!!! (NSFW 18+) lol just kidding
When my anime bubble bursted after getting the internet… I consumed anything that involved animated drawings from Japan. I watched some TURDS LOL. Suffice to say I got burned out within a year or so… But due to that experience I learned a lot about what I want out of anime! And I began a… Continue reading Anime Rating Scale
Two weeks of work in L.A. done… Two more weeks to go… I love it though. Too much to learn! Better to be busy than bored! Anyway, while anime has been one of my primary assistants in killing time these past few weeks… I did not have many reflections… I WILL say, Food Wars has… Continue reading Should Anime Influence How We Live Our Lives?… ABSOLUTELY!
Because you’re a PERVERT! A HENTAI! A BAKEMONE!! Just kidding…(mostly) Well, from the anecdotal evidence I could find online and my own conversations with exchange students AND from reading into the structure and expectations for academia in Japan, it is a safe determination that the high school experience is exceptionally difficult and stressful. Academia, entrance… Continue reading Why the high school setting in anime?!
