May 2021: The Golden Age

I have a new favorite harem anime, and oddly enough, my opinion has little to do with the female cast. The single greatest achievement of The Quintessential Quintuplets is having a male lead with self-respect. Yes, you’re reading that right.

I brought on my brother, a Real Doctorâ„¢, to talk about the Derek Chauvin trial, #StopAsianHate, and Martial Arts. His internet connection only broke down twice, not bad for a first episode. The next one is scheduled for August.

Several years ago, I promised that after finishing Muv-Luv: Alternative, I’d make a post spoiling everything you need to know to skip Muv-Luv: Extra & Unlimited. I finally got around to it, and in doing so, I poked a beehive of butthurt VN apologists. I don’t know why they want you to suffer, but I heroically stood my ground in the name of truth, justice, and the common good. If you value your own time, dignity, and sanity, skip straight to Muv-Luv: Alternative.

Dr. Stone: Stone Wars wrapped up much quicker than expected. That’s not to say it was bad, just kind of a letdown.

Horimiya is the most average shoujo anime ever, or so I thought until finding out it ran in a shounen magazine, instead making it the most average trans-shoujo anime ever.

This month in Crystalis: Robot Restaurant, Japan’s biggest tourist trap, appears to be the latest casualty of COVID-19. Who said the pandemic was all bad?

Kentaro Miura, the author of Berserk, has recently passed away. In his memory, I fondly recall my own history with Berserk and its curious ties to steak and lesbians.
