It's been forever since I've done a "10 Best Things" post, and I'm not exactly writing one now because Tower of God was more outstanding than anything else I've seen recently, but just because I've remembered how much low-effort fun this kind of post is. You will find that this list consists of oddly specific items,… Continue reading 10 Best Things: Tower of God

For me, as I'm sure it is for most people, my avoidance of spoilers is dependent on how much I care about continuing a show. I've… Continue reading What Makes a Spoiler a Spoiler?
Welcome to May. How's everyone doing? I'm not sure if this has something to do with our global situation, but the month of March saw a remarkable influx of creative otaku and geek content. This showcase received an unprecedented total of 55 submissions from Twitter. As such, I decided to split the showcase it into… Continue reading Jon’s Creator Showcase: April Edition Pt. 1 (Anime + Books)
You know, this whole thing about #FallAesthetic that Instagram and Pinterest are all about is starting to grow on me.

Enjoy. *Verdicts subject to change 10. Nil Admirari no Tenbin: Teito Genwaku Kitan Verdict: Drop Did not know it was… Continue reading Spring 2018 Anime: Drop, Watch, or Review?
Don't ask me why I finished Made in Abyss and not my English readings, but...well, since I finished it, I might as well talk about it. I started this blog with "10 Best Things" posts, which isn't really a problem because I only really finish anime that I enjoy. Sometimes I feel like it limits… Continue reading 10 Opinions on Made in Abyss
Even for those who don't think they're into slice-of-life featuring cute girls, this is an anime that's worth the watch. I present to you Kobayashi-san chi no Maid Dragon and ten wholesome things about it to battle this flu season.
I'm pretty excited about finally following upcoming anime episode-by-episode. Based on trailers, here are five I'd check out, out of which I'll choose 2-3 to review on a weekly basis. Considering that first impressions aren't always accurate, I'll probably leave room for one more show not from my list. Here we go, in no particular… Continue reading 2018 Winter Anime I’ll Check Out
Howl's Moving Castle - a mad fusion of steam-powered technology, contracts and curses, age-transcending love, and family comedy. It's been my favourite Ghibli film for years, and may just be my favourite film in general even outside the category of animation. So I went to see it at the theatre despite exam season - I… Continue reading 10 Best Things: Howl’s Moving Castle
Episodic plots aren't for everyone, and I can't say that I prefer it over continual plotlines. Nevertheless, Mushishi definitely worked its charm on me. Mushishi is a slow and quiet show.
