  • Naruto x 688 Review: The Sharingan’s…!!

    This week’s chapter of Naruto made up for the filler filled one we got last week, even if it featured Obito in the first few panels. Kakashi finally stepped up his game with a new power up, and the final battle has begun! Even since Madara stole Kakashi’s sharingan, the ninja hasn’t been able to […]



  • RWBY Volume 2 2×2 Review: Welcome to Beacon

    Now that we’re past the introductions, it’s time to get into the overarching story. Last volume ended with the reveal that Blake was not only a Faunus, an often discriminated against subspecies of humans which bare various animal traits, but a former member of The White Fang, an activist turned terrorist organization. The White Fang appear […]


  • Women of SAO: The Strength of Sinon

    Have you been watching season two of Sword Art Online (SAO)? The new female character, Sinon, demonstrates a strength in-game that rivals that of Asuna in the Knights of the Blood Oath (If you’d like to read more on Asuna, check this out). Sinon’s character development, not being confined to the game like the first […]


  • The Legend of Korra 3×9 Review: The Stakeout

    This week’s episode of The Legend of Korra: Change was the most philosophical yet. There was a lot of talk about what it means to be free, along with some visually exciting action sequences. I’m still having trouble trusting Sue. She sent Korra and her friends to track down Ai Wei knowing quite well that […]


  • RWBY Volume 2 2x1Review: Best Day Ever

    One show that’s been taking the anime community by storm isn’t even an anime, it’s an american web series. RWBY, created by Monty Oum and Rooster Teeth Productions, has just begun airing it’s second volume online. The series focuses on Ruby Rose, a quirky, sometimes awkward fifteen year old who dreams of being a Huntress, […]



  • Love Stage!! 1×4 Review: But I Do Like You

    This week’s episode took a weird turn for the meta with Izumi repeatedly making references to being a “BL (Boys Love/Shonen Ai) Character” and warning to not “underestimate an otaku.”  This genre self awareness was hilariously awkward and I wanted to reach through the screen and gently remind him that yes, sorry to break it […]


  • Naruto x 687 Review: I Know You Will

    This week’s manga of Naruto had to be the worst filler issue in the entire series. With the final arc already in motion, it felt as if Kishimoto was deliberately dragging the story for a character that no one really cared about. The story could have been told in three panels rather than a whole […]


  • Love Stage!! 1×3 Review: If It Had Only Been A Dream

    Love Stage!! keeps getting better and better with each episode.  Unfortunately, this episode did fall into one of the tropes that’s so prevalent throughout the yaoi and shonen-ai genres with the introduction of a scene that stands precariously on the corner of non-consensual and dubiously-consensual.  It’s a trope I try very hard to avoid, but […]
