Rotten Citrus

Okay! So, I finally get to talk about Orange! Great! Dark Jester: Actually, Citrus is entirely different… Oh… Well, OK! So there are plenty of anime that have had terrible starts- much worse than this one. But instead of seeing an anime where 2 girls fall in love and have meaningful sex! This anime somehow managed to use its…

There’s a Difference Between Bias and Denial

Awhile back, I would sit down and ponder how I could counter the claim: “You’re just biased!”. It’s not really something you can just argue against because the claim, itself, is baseless. From that point on, the debate either has to end or falls to immature bickering because this one baseless argument has no answer…

Don’t Accept That Your Favorite Anime is Trash

Some guy looks at your anime list and sees that you have Eromanga-Sensei rated as a 10/10 and ridicules you for that. He says that your taste is “trash”. You willingly submit to this word as if it means that something is ironically good. Or simply, that it is fine. No, Trash does not mean ironically good….

On The Argument That Some Anime Are Just For Fun

This is probably my biggest gripe with the community because this isn’t even an argument. Like, people don’t often see that when you’re saying something like Ben-To isn’t supposed to be a super serious story, It’s just supposed to be wacky and fun! You’re telling me that it’s a waste of time. The reason is really…

Anime Fans Don’t Value Mystery

Something I’ve noticed about the community is that… Anime fans do not value mystery. Even, like, mystery components can easily be seen as controversial. This was very apparent when Stein’s;Gate started airing. A minority of the audience actually liked episode 1 and 2 and even fewer genuinely understood what Stein’s;Gate was going for. Actually a very similar…

The Potential Saving Grace of Character Dynamics

Character dynamics doesn’t just revolve around a singular character. Hell, I’d say the relationships between characters and how they function as a group is what truly makes it ‘dynamic’.  Black Clover is a relatively mediocre anime that I am sure plenty of people have negative opinions of the main characters, as do I. However, I would…

Chihayafuru is Repetitive

Chihayafuru was a very intimate experience. It’s one of those rare romance stories that I was actually invested in for awhile. I think it was well-handled in terms of showing the audience, mainly the younger side of it, that perseverance pays off, wonderfully depicting how personal endeavors and traumas can keep you distant from others…

Darling in the FranXX│Very Light-Novel

Only 1 episode as of this video, so I’d assume you’ll take this with a grain of salt. Firstly, I wanna talk about the character designer Masayoshi Tanaka as I am sure this name rings true to the ears of many who know of his work with Your Name. Personally, I am indifferent towards him. I mainly…
