Whispered Words [Sasameki Koto] – SOAN SPOTLIGHT!

Whispered Words [Sasameki Koto] – SOAN SPOTLIGHT!

Well, time for the last article of 2016! With 30 minutes to spare! This article is about a manga-turned-anime that I had just found out had become an anime about 5 hours ago. Watching the first few episodes, not only do I find it more entertaining than I figured, but also a very romantic and dramatic take for an unrequited love between two girls. More after the jump!

Yuri Plisetsky is Better than Yuri Katsuki – Here’s Why

Yuri Plisetsky is Better than Yuri Katsuki – Here’s Why

I don't typically do more than one article on a particular subject, but this is one I've thought about for a while. Being the apparent highlight of the season for most people, Yuri on ICE!!! continues to captivate others in its final episodes. Unfortunately for me, the anime has gone from decent to sub-standard. But one of its saving graces is also a point against the anime, and that is Yuri Plisetsky just being a more interesting character than Yuri Katsuki. More after the jump.

The Art of Corruption. How Bernie Shows the Most Powerful Form of Story-Telling.

Get ready for an even weirder article. Not only is it my first time doing an article on a movie, but it's also on one that hardly anyone actually knows. But don't let the unusual casting fool you, because Bernie showcases my favorite form of Story-Telling, the careful and precise Art of Corruption. More after the jump.

Why Overrated Content Bothers Me (As a Critic and As a Writer)

Why Overrated Content Bothers Me (As a Critic and As a Writer)

This is not an article where I sit down and think for a long time about what I want to write. This is more an article that is a summation of what I've thought about some things for a long time. It may be a rant, it may be a glorfied excuse to throw a hissy-fit, but I know it's something I've wanted to talk about for a while. So if you're interested in my inner thoughts on critique in general, then stick with me after the jump.

Why I’m 100% Excited for Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Why I’m 100% Excited for Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I'm definitely not the first guy to be super excited for the new Legend of Zelda game. In fact, I was actually quite late in hopping on the hype train. Something about the game's initial parameters struck me as odd and possibly alienating. But ever since the VGA's, where a new trailer was revealed, something about it made me relieved. Not only that, but I now I find myself in full-force hype mode for this game. Read why after the jump.

How Chivalry of a Failed Knight was Almost Not Terrible (Kind of)

How Chivalry of a Failed Knight was Almost Not Terrible (Kind of)

It's pretty common in the world of anime critique to see shows that are obviously bottom of the barrel. Chivalry of a Failed Knight probably had some of the worst and most bleak first two episodes I had seen. But the weird part is that, it actually got better after that. Not only that, but it almost became not terrible. Find out just how after the jump.

One Piece is Not Very Good (But I Still Kinda Like it)

One Piece is Not Very Good (But I Still Kinda Like it)

Welp, had this blog for a couple months, time to get a little ballsy. One Piece, compared to the other two of the Big Three, seemingly has more going for it. Unfortunately, that lends to a lot of people considering it to be unfaltering and perfect. While I do like the show, I can't help but notice the nuances and problems that persist with this juggernaut of a series. Read how after the jump.
