    I’m trying to expand my anime horizons, so I’m working my way through some series on Crunchyroll and I stumbled across Clean Freak! Aoyama-Kun.

    Last week was Mako’s time to shine, but “Voltage” gave Shiziku the stage this week.

  • If You Haven’t Seen “Your Name” Yet, Why Not?

    As I fall further down the rabbit hole of anime, I’m stumbling across things that other people have known about for ages. Case in point: Your Name. I had the opportunity to see this in theaters, and I didn’t, and now I’m kicking myself, because it was amazing. Read our before commenting. Please do not copy […]
