Demystifying the Mysterious (An Award Post, Actually)

Thanks to my friendo kingdylbag for nominating me. I'm trying to make it a goal to not have more than two award posts lined up now, so here it is (finally). Honestly, my blog isn't that mysterious and I'm not that much of a mystery either. I'm really bad at keeping any sort of secret …

[Highlights] Violet Evergarden 02: Under Rain or Shine

Still busy as hell...but still ended up watching Violet Evergarden. I will pay for this later. I don't think I was as wowed by this episode as the first, but this was definitely still a solid episode. Emerging feminism! Violet Evergarden does seem to reflect many historical truths. Taking all into account, this would be something like...the …

[Highlights] Sora yori mo Tooi Basho Ep. 2 & 3: More Hype!

[First Impression] Koi wa Ameagari no You ni Brings some Love to the Rain Season

For anyone who considers staying in Vancouver, I must tell you that it is a very depressing city. It just rains and rains, and when there's no rain the clouds still loom over you, threatening to make it rain. In this environment, I've always entertained myself by interpreting weather changes as fluctuations in a relationship. …

[First Impression] Correction: Pop Team Epic May Damage Brain Cells

My last post on Pop Team Epic...had unexpected results. It was something that intentionally lacked substance and disguised itself as a legitimate review talking about cute girls doing cute things, which is why I called it "Pop Team Epic in a nutshell." Tetrax glorified that post by calling it really "meta" - it's probably not that sharp of …
