Anime x Lit Crit: Toradora! – 20

Yup, it's time for another installment of your record-breakingly long-running collaboration series between me and NegativePrimes! Primes: Running on two years now, right?

Demon Sayer Corps: Kimetsu no Yaiba 26 – Off the Training, Onto the Train

Belated final thoughts on last season's hype. Who's who: Purple = Aria the 14th Magic Conan Green = Plyasm of the Wormhole Blue = Astral the Gemini Red = Moya the Tori 1. What are your general thoughts on this episode? [Mandatory] More train hype. Loved the first half and didn’t mind the second either. A very good episode, and a fitting endpoint for the …

Demon Sayer Corps: Kimetsu no Yaiba 12 – Somnambulism, Motion Sickness, and Other Afflictions

Demon Sayer Corps: Kimetsu no Yaiba 5 – Interlude Chat

Unsurprisingly behind we are. A reminder of who's who and updates from everyone: Purple = Aria (Works ahead on all the episodes and is actually on track. Good job!) Green = Plyasm ("Life is the same as always," "nothing noteworthy." Guess we can't expect much from that...) Blue = Astral (Fresh out of the surgery room, let's slice him some hospital patient apples) Red = …

Anime x Lit Crit: Vampires & Valentines – Toradora! 15

(3 months later...) Oh hey, isn't this collab thing still going on? Without further comments or apologies on how long it's been, here is Toradora! 15, brought to you by Negative Primes and Moya. Finally, we have Kitamura-centric arc! That being said, this episode has done little to explain his crisis (why he bleached his hair or …
