  • Fall 2014 Anime Season Overview/Winter 2015 First Impressions

    The 2014 fall season just wrapped up and I’m super excited to get the chance to write about it. Well, maybe not just ended, I admit to having fallen behind as I was trying to finish watching everything for the end of year overview. Because of that, I’ve also included my first impressions of the […]


  • Tokyo Ghoul 2×2 Review: Dancing Flowers

    If you read my review from last week, then you know that my first impression of Tokyo Ghoul Root A was lukewarm at best. But let me tell you, this week’s episode of this series definitely changed my thoughts and opinion for the better! Episode two titled “Dancing Flowers” definitely piqued my interest for this new season […]

  • Tokyo Ghoul: The Curious Case of Kaneki Ken

    Whatever preconceived notion that you have about anime needs to be set aside for a bit because Tokyo Ghoul is far from your typical anime. Tokyo Ghoul is an action/ horror genre anime that’s set in an alternative present-day Japan where ghouls (carnivorous creatures that survive by consuming human flesh) live among ordinary people. Although most ghouls choose […]





  • The Legend of Korra 4×11 Review: Kuvira’s Gambit

    If there’s anything this week’s episode of The Legend of Korra Book 4: Balance has taught me is that Kuvira clearly needs to be defeated. I’m not talking about a defeat in which she’s sent to prison. No! She needs to be killed off immediately. There is no redeemable quality in her, especially not after […]
