Create-a-Story Tag: “Fall”

When the only other stories I've written on my blog are a dumb satire piece and an odd nod to Edgar Allan Poe (what happened to the Let's All Write a Book tag, btw?), I have no idea why anyone would think that I'm fit for this challenge. Not all English majors can write, okay?! But I did …

Anime x Lit Crit – Vampires & Valentines: Toradora! 10

So I'm back! Thanks to my partner Primes and anyone who keeps up with this series for having so much patience. Primes: Welcome back! We're glad you survived your intense summer coursework!  Thank you! 🙂 The fact that I more-or-less predicted the course of this episode may have affected my enjoyment of it a bit, but …

Yomu & Moyatori Present: Yomutori Sentiment! — Umai Yomu Anime Blog

Yomu reached out to me for a vocal collab not too long ago - we covered "木枯らしセンティメント" (Kogarashi Sentiment). Coincidentally, I've been very in love with Chiwa Saito's voice recently, and have had "staple stable" and "Futakotome" on loop for most of the week. Hey, Senjougahara's not best girl to me (because Hanekawa is), but …

End of Hiatus – I Have Slain Some Weak Demons

Hello, hello! I've missed everyone. My blog-reading pattern has been sporadic recently, but I'm looking to catch up on all your recent posts soon, and will start responding to tags hopefully by tomorrow. Where I've Been Well...technically, mere finals are supposed to be even weaker demons than entrance exams, right? It appears I underestimated my …

[Highlights] Piano no Mori 12 (End): That’s It?

I know, it's only the end of the season and not the entire series, but man, this has gotta be one of the weakest episodes in the anime. Not even that many screenshots this time. It's mostly Kai playing piano, and the animation, though without major blunders, is fairly lackluster. Be yourself, Kai, be yourself. …

To Anyone with a Blog: Can We Chat About Community?

Lots of people have blogged about how great it is to be a part of the aniblogging community (or whichever corner of WordPress you belong to), and many more have talked about how friendship and support from people they have never met has affected their lives positively. I am one who feels this way too …

Anime x Lit Crit: Vampires & Valentines – Toradora! 9

Ah, how I envy anime characters' summers. Those rich friends with seaside mansions.  Anyways, this episode has many phenomenal highlights, and I have plenty to say about it. Remember to check out Primes' Shiki review on his blog this week! Primes: Thanks, Moya! Of course, that's assuming I get to it while it's "First Impressions" time…!  Right, first …
