Is it Time for a New Username?

This is a bit of a heavier post, but the topic is an important one that I hope to gain some insight on. There’s been some talk on Twitter calling for non-Japanese users to not use Japanese names online. The reasons cited include concerns regarding cultural appropriation and undermining the Japanese community’s online presence. Certainly,… Continue reading Is it Time for a New Username?

Happy July 24th! You ask me what's happening on this day? Well...nothing in particular as far as I know, but I'm sure we can find a reason to celebrate on Foodimentary - oh guess what, it's National Tequila Day! I refuse to drink any alcohol that isn't sweetened, and this certainly doesn't relate to the… Continue reading Demon Sayer Corps: Kimetsu no Yaiba 12 – Somnambulism, Motion Sickness, and Other Afflictions

Anime x Lit Crit: Vampires & Valentines – Toradora! 06

Primes: *stares sheepishly at his own toes after not posting for an entire week*  What do you mean?
