Most of Bleach wasn’t Good

Saturday, September 3rd, 2016

I designed my ratings flowchart to give a + to long-running shounen anime that had fallen from grace. I gladly gave it to Naruto, but it’s with a heavy apathetic heart that I can’t do the same for Bleach. Despite horribly jumping the shark, the majority of Naruto was good. Bleach didn’t even come close. […]

I’m an Asshole after all

I Am Not an Asshole

Thursday, May 9th, 2013

A certain asshole recently recommended a +++ manga to me. Normally this would earn the recommender a parade in the streets with rose petals and blowjobs. What taints this asshole’s otherwise glorious recommendation is that the manga runs monthly and appears to be in the middle of its climactic arc. Only an asshole would make […]

Aoi Hana Gets Real

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Aoi Hana once inspired me to draw a distinction between real lesbians and super lesbians, mainly because the “lesbians” in Aoi Hana were constantly crying instead of groping each other. Not only was I hoping for another kind of waterworks, the horrendous cry/grope ratio was only one of several criticisms I had of the show. […]

Hunter x Hunter 335: Why?

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Spoiler warning: In certain rare instances, it may honestly be more exciting to get spoiled by a blog post than to read the manga itself. To call this scene/chapter/arc anticlimactic would be an understatement. Merely seeing Ging’s unobscured face early in the arc was enough of a letdown. Then we find out he has at […]

Soul Eater is pretty good when it doesn’t suck

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

Surely the Soul Eater manga couldn’t have the same shitty sense of humor as the anime. Surely the very first chapter I attempted to read wouldn’t have that stupid toilet bowl joke. That was three years ago. Only recently had the emotional and psychological scars healed. I was ready to give Soul Eater another chance, […]

Black Cat and the Cloneasaurus

Friday, January 27th, 2012

One of my earliest posts criticized the Black Cat anime for cramming too much material in to too few episodes, as exemplified by its superficial development of Flora-chan, a dinosaur brought to life by advanced cloning techniques. I finally got around to reading Black Cat in its original form of matter. As expected, it was […]

Shingeki no Kyojin = (Shadow of the Colossus + Evangelion) / 2

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

Well played, Shinobu Kaitani, well played. Bringing Liar Game back from hiatus as soon as it got the Baka-Raptor Bump. A brilliant strategy befitting the creator of Liar Game. Or so I thought. Liar Game’s scanlating group announced it would delay the latest chapter of Liar Game in favor of some other manga I’d never […]

Liar Game is Brilliant

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

As much as I like this manga, I’ll be the first to admit it’s not for everyone. If any of the following applies to you, don’t read Liar Game. If you’re stupid, don’t read Liar Game. I don’t want anyone crying to me because it’s too hard for them to understand. If you’re a pussy, […]

Diary of a Manga Lived: I Saved the World

Monday, August 1st, 2011

Many of you have been wondering what I’ve been doing for the past month. In a few words, I was saving the world. In the 7th month of the year 20XX, the Queen of Terror was sealed in My Balls. To save mankind from total annihilation, I had no choice but to keep myself from […]
