  • Given 1×06 Review: “Creep”

    I spent much of this episode trying to figure out just what the title was meant to reference. Is “Creep” referring to a person? The pace of the story? The existential dread that looms behind us all? Or are we just picking random song titles? Read our before commenting. Please do not copy our content […]


  • Given 1×05 Review: “The Reason”

    I can’t believe we’re getting a Hoobastank reference in this year of our lord 2019, much less one in an anime, but “The Reason” is actually an incredibly apt title, considering the subject matter of this episode.

  • Given 1×04 Review: “Fluorescent Adolescent”

    “Fluorescent Adolescent” is an excellent example of how to achieve a lot in an episode while very little actually happens. The plot is light but the character interactions and developments are massive. Read our before commenting. Please do not copy our content in whole to other websites. Linkbacks are encouraged.

  • Given 1×01 Review: “Boys in the Band”

I am 100% here for this. Read our before commenting. Please do not copy our content […]

  • Manhwa Recommendation: King’s Maker

    While I am an avid consumer of media, it’s rare that a story captures me so quickly and makes it so that I can think of almost nothing else from the moment I start exploring it.  That’s precisely what happened with King’s Maker, though.  The story is gripping, the art is gorgeous, and the characters […]


  • Don’t Feel Guilty Seeking Comfort in Fandom

    Yuri on Ice is keeping me sane right now.  I spent Tuesday night and a good chunk of Wednesday crying, but my fandom friends have kept me focused on some of the few positive things in the world.  They are my life boat.  They are my rock.  I love you all. Read our before commenting. […]
