I thought I timed it so that 500 followers and the blog's third anniversary should happen at about the same time, but looks like we hit the milestone early. Well, you people really rock! I'm still a bit jet-lagged as I write this, so please pardon any less coherent bits. Starting this blog might be… Continue reading 500 Follower Appreciation Post + Random Anime Reveal

Accepting Random Anime Recommendations

A big thank you to all who contributed ideas in the last post for my 500 follower celebration. After looking at everyone's ideas, I chose Aria's comment as the winning suggestion (but will combine a few other ideas with this): Maybe take recommendations from your followers (anime-only if you want to stick to your theme,… Continue reading Accepting Random Anime Recommendations

Anime x Lit Crit: Toradora! 24

Penultimate episode analysis, here we go! I said last episode was intense. Well, I was wrong. Intensity is relative... Primes: So true! This is one of my favorite Toradora episodes! In our last discussion, Primes asked if I thought "[the main characters will] finally see the ghosts and UFOs they believe in." I suggested that… Continue reading Anime x Lit Crit: Toradora! 24

[OST Spotlight] In This Corner of the World: Healing with “Migite no Uta”

It was fun doing soundtrack analysis for The Promised Neverland, so I'm back at it again! Technically, the piece featured today is more of an insert song, but it encapsulates the movie so well that I really couldn't choose anything else. "Migite no Uta" (みぎてのうた; "The Right Hand's Song") is the official theme song of… Continue reading [OST Spotlight] In This Corner of the World: Healing with “Migite no Uta”

Anime x Lit Crit: Toradora! 23

Phew! Finally, an episode that builds up to some satisfaction. Primes: Wait, does that mean you were unsatisfied with the previous episodes? I'm going to go cry now... *jk* This episode is among the best emotional moments in the series, for me at least. Well, no, but at the end of most episodes before this,… Continue reading Anime x Lit Crit: Toradora! 23

What Makes a Spoiler a Spoiler?

This is something I wonder about sometimes, which a certain Tweet caused me to reflect on again: https://twitter.com/spookyredh/status/1262012943144636417 People have different degrees of tolerance when it comes to spoilers. 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?

Anime x Lit Crit: Toradora! 22

Three more episodes until the end! Negative Primes and I are still trudging on. This episode is loaded with symbolism and random bizarre moments. Primes: Ain't that the truth. It opens with a continuation of Ryuji's rescuing of Taiga, but it turns out that it was all just Ryuji's nightmare in the middle of class.… Continue reading Anime x Lit Crit: Toradora! 22

Hey, it's been a while I've done an award post (and by a while, I mean...*checks,* 2 years. *Gulps*). Apologies to all the people who came up with the greatest questions ever that I never answered, some of whom have since left the blogsphere. I do really love answering random questions, so idk why it… Continue reading Sunshine Blogger Award: Finally, an Award Post
