February 2021: Diplomacy

Higurashi Gou finally branches off into 100% original territory with Nekodamashi-hen, giving Rika tons of new and creative ways to get slaughtered. I must confess, I only realized in the middle of making my video on Railgun T that the […]

January 2021: The Great Reset

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the first console game I’ve played in five years. Halfway through the game, it feels like a combination of the most boring parts of Shadow of the Colossus and the most boring […]

December 2020: Best Year Ever

The single worst thing about 2020 is that the internet still hasn’t grown tired of 2020 memes. 2020 IS THE WORST YEAR EVER LOL! It’s been the same shit on social media all year. I’d call it unprecedented, but the […]

November 2020: First Impressions

First impressions are generally worthless. Case in point: the internet’s reaction to the first episode of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Gou. I figured I couldn’t do any worse, so I reviewed Onidamashi-hen and Watadamashi-hen. My first impression of Haiyore […]

October 2020: Time Loop

For my annual celebration of The END Day, I talked about dropping the Higurashi manga. To make a long story short, the Higurashi manga couldn’t make a long story short. Posts forthcoming on both the new anime and the old […]

September 2020: Back at the Movies

Less than a month after watching the Heaven’s Feel movie, I found myself back at the movie theater for Violet Evergarden. While Heaven’s Feel had a slightly higher death count, Violet Evergarden had slightly more drama, to the point that […]

August 2020: Making Moves

How do you make a move on a girl? Don’t do anything you see in KanoKari. Or do all of it, I guess. Check out my new Red Pill Analysis episodic reviews, in which I examine which romantic/sexual developments in […]

July 2020: Bikeraptor

How the hell did I not think of calling this video series Bikeraptor until now? Aggregate final scores: sometimes a friend, sometimes a foe. They can help you decide if an anime is worth watching, but they can also be […]

June 2020: Return to Akihabara

I spent the first half of the month binge-watching Yowamushi Pedal Seasons 3-4, which you can get through fairly quickly when you skip all the openings, endings, and stupid omake scenes. Following tradition, I biked to Akihabara to review Season […]

May 2020: The Raptorcycle

To stay in shape during the lockdown, I took up bicycling, and to neutralize my efforts, I started watching Yowamushi Pedal. The main character, Sakamichi Onoda, cycles with enthusiasm unseen since Golden Boy’s Kintaro Oe, except Kintaro speeds up by […]
