(A little late to the party, I know. I actually wrote the bulk of this after the second episode aired, but didn't finish it until well, about 5 minutes ago.) I love Boogiepop. A lot.

Rilakkuma is the only anime so far this year that I watched to completion as it was airing. I know most people aren't fans of the Netflix release schedule, but when it's stuff like this that they're actually producing themselves (so, shows that aren't being broadcast on Japanese TV before it drops over here) I … Continue reading Rilakkuma is Spring’s Best Medicine

I want anime to have great animation, I want movies to have interesting shot composition, and in comics, I want … Continue reading 4-Koma Manga Suck, Here’s Why
For the longest time, I was in a mindset to watch everything. I want to see every good anime and I'm always afraid that if I skip out on something then I'll be missing something that I may like. But recently when I was doing Drop Watch Hold 2017, I realized that this is in and of … Continue reading How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Not Watch Everything
