  • We’re Getting More Free! And I’m Freaking Out

    When I first fell down the sports anime rabbit hole, I absolutely fell in love with Free!, the swimming anime centering around the rivalry between childhood friends Haru and Rin. With only two seasons and a movie, I’ve been mourning the lack of new content for a while. But today I woke up to great news. […]


  • Free Queer Indie Games

    There are many free indie games available online: some better than others. I generally like pretty graphics and strong story lines, which aren’t generally the focus of free games. However, there are many areas not covered in games made by companies trying to sell to large audiences, or if they include them, it often ends […]

  • Free! Episode 1 Review

    At long last, the first episode of Tumblr’s beloved swimming anime is upon us. Does it live up to the hype? It’s too soon to tell.

  • Three New Anime That Tumblrites Should Look Into

    I have to admit, I’m not one for anime these days. Back in my youth, I ate up every anime that crossed my path.
