The END DAY: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

To be fair, I never cared for any installment in the Lupin III franchise. The few times I caught Lupin III episodes on Adult Swim, I was usually leaving it on in the background as I did my homework. Yes, that’s how little I cared about Lupin III—I actually chose to do homework instead of […]

Raw Impressions

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

I’m not usually the kind of douchebag who walks into (or worse, out of) a test crying about how he’s definitely going to fail, only to end up pissing all over the condolence flowers he suckered everyone else into buying him. Still, I have no idea how I passed the JLPT N2, let alone got […]

JJBA Part III: Fixed

Monday, July 13th, 2015

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part III: Stardust Crusaders is better than Parts I and II in almost every way imaginable. Part I: Phantom Blood introduced a forgettable lead, incompetent side characters, a lousy power system, and one crappy fight after the next. It’s only saving grace was its charismatic antagonist. Part II: Battle Tendency gave its […]

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Armchair Psychology

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (Your Lie in April) is a touching story about the power of armchair psychology. It starts out with some kid getting assaulted. This is comical because it’s a girl assaulting a boy. The fun never ends. Tomboy assaults Beta Male until he’s confounded by psychoses that can only be solved […]

No, Idiots, it wasn’t Obvious

Monday, October 6th, 2014

I’m not going to bother attempting to define obviousness, but I’m more than happy to point out a few things idiots often confuse it for: Intuition Hindsight Bias Help (Can’t figure it out yourself? Not obvious.) Let’s jump straight into a few recent examples. SPOILER ALERT. Attack on Titan Back when I was reading the […]

The END DAY: Paris-hen

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Last year I was too busy not watching anime to commemorate The END DAY. This year I’m writing a double post to make up for it. Nodame Cantabile: Paris-hen The first season of Nodame Cantabile (++) told an excellent story. More importantly for the purposes of this post, it told a complete story. There was […]
