1. The Black Healer as the pinnacle of Chick Isekai

    In our days, when Rimuru the Slime anime succeeds Death March and Dorei Majutsu on air, the traditional isekai is well established. Everyone loves frolicking in a slave harem. However, it's not the only defined form of isekai. Its antagonist is, for the lack of a better term, the chick …

  2. Meow-Meow Japanese History

    Also known by its original name of Neko-neko Nihonshi, the cat thing is a delight. Although, truth to be told, I'm not entirely sure about some of the characters, most are quite recognizeable. Shinsegumi commanders, for example, or Ryoma Saotome. The episode of Sei Shounagon is my most favourite, with …

  3. FranXX begins

    Initially, [Darling in the] FranXX came on my radar because everyone latched on the supposed sexual innuendo (even Evirus). Later, Faust came strongly in favor, although on Smug.Loli instead of his own blog:

    Do you like Trigger's Darling in the FranXX? Their early work was a little too cartoonish …

  4. A full year of suspensions

    In the time-honored tradition of never dropping anything, but suspending series forever, there were more in the year since Flying Witch fell flat on its face.

    Planetarian: Seen 3. It's very short, but it's basically the suffering porn, like Grave of the Fireflies, which I dropped 2/3 in too …

  5. Comic Girls

    What do you watch when nothing else goes on? There's always a CGDCT nowadays. And for an empty season's fodder, Comig Girls do not disappoint (h/t DiGiKerot). I just wish they didn't make poor Kaosu to cry so much. Her self-doubt and imposter syndrome are familiar and even endearing …

  6. Death March kara

    In the past year or so, my intake of anime was trending down steadily, being displaced mostly by the isekai manga. I literally went to a pirate scanlation site and searched all manga with "isekai" in the name, as well as "dorei", "tensei", collected the results, and been busy reading …

  7. Uma Musume 01

    Remember how bloggers said that we had cute Producer and cool Producer, and we needed a passion Producer? We have one now, albeit in a wrong show and called "Trainer".

    When Trainer was checking Special Week's thigh muscles, he should've also checked her heart and lungs. A missed opportunity!

    Silence …

  8. Renai 3D Debut manga

    For whatever reason I often re-read the silly thing (well, the 6 chapters currently available on scanlations). It's just so nice, and everything about it is adorable: the arrow stuck in her head, how she turns into a lion and roars, and even the normie interlocutor (despide being a fujoshi …
