Manga is quite enjoyable with its gripping action, but the trailer is disgusting with the RWBY level 3D and Kumoko's snout. Perhaps this is what fans of Star Wars felt when they saw Jar-jar.read more
Ascendance of a Bookworm is something I reconsidered primarily thanks to comment board at Brickmuppet's. The heroine of the manga was absolutely insufferable though being self-centered. However, with Muppet vouching for the anime, I gave it a good try, and indeed, they wrote out the character flaws that ruined everything …read more
When Funimation dropped Interspecies Reviweers after 3 episodes, it was funny. Remember how Seven Seas dropped Kodomo no Jikan? Good times. Yet again licensing something without any idea what they licensed, the industry is at its best as usual. But now that Tokyo MX dropped the broadcast (and literally replaced …read more

Japanese sure love their emotional anxiety stories. Some are immensely popular, yet fail to interest... I'm looking at you, Komi-san. Fortunately, Hitori Bocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu takes a sunshine approach. Imagine, if you will, a Watamote, where the main character is not a disgusting turd of a person, but rather …read more
Been busy recently. Well, that, and scanlations.
Yama no Susume S3: not as amazing as S2. In S2, they had a lot of growth and stepped beyond the boundaries of CGDCT. I don't remember the last time when an anime protagonist fail as hard as Aoi did, and then live …read more
