The Swooping Descent of the Dark Emissary! The Propagation of Malice

May 2022: Best in Class

The Quintessential Quintuplets movie cements the series at the greatest harem anime of all time. All it took was a harem with five legitimate contenders and a male lead who wasn’t a spineless pushover. (Post forthcoming on why Fuutarou made […]

April 2022: Wholesome

Ever notice how My Dress-Up Darling (Sono Bique Doll wa Koi wo Suru) was the most wholesome anime ever? I didn’t either. Except for the blackface, that was totally wholesome. The guy who married the Princess of Japan failed the […]

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 […]
