  • Naruto Shippuden 18×409 Review: Their Backs

    The focus on Sakura Haruno continued in this week’s episode of Naruto Shippuden. She was able to protect Ino and Choji from the Hidden Sand Village team, and our team of heroes proceeded towards the final stage of the Chunin Exams. Sakura has always been protected by those around her. Even though she’s a part […]


  • Naruto Gaiden – Naruto x 701 Review: Uchiha Sarada

    Part three of the Naruto manga has officially debuted, and it focused on the next generation of the Hidden Leaf Village. While we’ve already seen most of the new characters in the Naruto finale, it was good to see them fleshed out a bit more, and I can’t wait for the next installment — especially […]


  • Naruto Shippuden 18×408 Review: The Cursed Puppet

    This week’s episode of Naruto Shippuden, “The Cursed Puppet”, was about Sakura Haruno and her effectiveness at chakra control. The manga didn’t explain what she went through while she trained under Tsunade, so it was good to see her experiences, even if it was through filler. I was curious as to why Sakura looked tired after […]


  • Death Parade: The Biggest Surprise of Winter 2015

    The winter 2015 anime season has finally come to a close. Out of all of the anime I’ve watched over the past few months, the biggest surprise comes in the form of a 12-episode miniseries called Death Parade. I can attest to the fact that this show is every bit deserving of the praise it […]

    Kakashi Hiden: Lightning in the Icy Sky is the first light novel in the Naruto Hiden series. It’s written by Akira Higashiyama and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of Naruto. The stories in the Hiden series take place after the end of Fourth Ninja War and tell about the journey of various characters before […]



  • Naruto Shippuden 18×406 Review: The Place Where I Belong

    This week’s episode of Naruto Shippuden was about Ino Yamanaka and Sakura Haruno. The two female characters have been best friends as well as rivals from the start, and it was nice to see them working together to become stronger over the years. When I first got to know about Ino through the Naruto anime, […]


  • Tokyo Ghoul 2×12 Review: Ken

    Tokyo Ghoul Root A has finally come to an end. After months of watching this series, my time with this anime is finally over. The conclusion of this anime series ends with much sadness, angst, and tragedy. Although the majority of the series consisted of disappointments, the final episode gives the show some redemption. Warning: […]


  • Naruto Shippuden 18×405 Review: The Imprisoned Pair

    If you aren’t watching the current Naruto Shippuden filler, then you are certainly missing out, because it has to be one of the best filler ever in the series! The writers put focus on the secondary character Tenten and her insecurity regarding her ninja skills compared to her teammates Neji and Lee. I’ve always found […]


  • Tokyo Ghoul: How Low Can You Go

    I’m sure that by this point, my disappointment in Tokyo Ghoul Root A no longer comes as a surprise to anyone. As of now, the second season has one episode left, and I have been repeatedly unimpressed by the complete lackluster and unoriginality of the anime. I’m very sad to say that after being let down time […]
