  • Summer 2014 Halfway point: Hits and Misses.

    For each new anime season, I do try to make a point to check out what’s gaining buzz in the community. Sometimes I’m a little late to the party, and sometimes it isn’t until the next season has started that I even get time to really invest in finding the gems. Usually I’ll discover one, […]


  • Love Stage 1×6 Review: What Kind Of Test Is That

    We’ve come so far in terms of character development in the span of just six short episodes. While Ryouma’s questionable restraint around Izumi is still an ongoing issue, he’s evolved from the cliched pop star into an altogether caring character that I’ve developed a large amount of sympathy for. Rei isn’t just a guy in […]


  • RWBY Volume 2 2×3 Review: A Minor Hiccup

    A Minor Hiccup starts with something we’ve all been looking forward to, new character outfits! Okay, maybe it’s just me and my fellow cosplayers going all sparkly eyed at finally seeing our girls in civvies, but the new outfits are predictably wonderful, keeping with the girls colour coding and personalities perfectly. The girls make plans to […]



  • The Legend of Korra 3×10 Review: Long Live the Queen

    With only two more episodes of The Legend of Korra: Book 3 left, this week’s episode made the perfect setup for the finale. Zaheer and the rest of the Red Lotus have made their move and are ready for Korra. They also have Mako and Bolin as their hostages. Ever since the political situation in Ba […]


  • Love Stage!! 1×5 Review: Just A Little

    This anime continues to surprise me with both how absolutely adorable it is and how much each character continues to flesh out week after week. The characters could have been simple two-dimensional beings that exhibit only the cliched trademarks of their type (otaku, rock star, etc), but things are a lot more nuanced than that. […]


  • 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 […]
