July 2021: Throwback

Higurashi’s back with a vengeance, literally. Answer arcs are moving quickly at only 3 episodes each, so it’s your lucky month—you’re getting one video for Oniakashi-hen and another one for Wataakashi-hen. Tanya the Evil may be a fascist, but her […]

June 2021: Generic

My Teenage Romantic Comedy SNAFU (Oregairu) was supposed to be generic. It wasn’t. Insert impassioned defense for watching and liking it. Mushoku Tensei was supposed to be generic. It was, but it was still pretty good. Insert impassioned defense for […]

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. […]

April 2021: Database

The back wall of my studio is finally complete with the final addition being a tapestry of Echidna, the star of Re:Zero Season 2. It’s a shame this exemplary specimen of womanhood wasn’t in literally every scene. How do you […]

March 2021: Cheapness

If you’re looking to punch your ticket to Japan and don’t mind being poor, you may want to consider working for Interac. For all their faults, they’re still a million times better than AEON. My first Aria post in 13 […]

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 […]
