Freebie Friday #10: I’ll Leave Tomorrow’s Problems to Tomorrow’s Me

Shounen, like any other genre, functions within a certain set of tropes.  The structure of the most well-known shounen manga and anime are dependent on a specific set of plot structures and character types. My Hero Academia--which I love, don't get me wrong--is an excellent example of these cliches.  In the shounen genre, it's all… Continue reading Freebie Friday #10: I’ll Leave Tomorrow’s Problems to Tomorrow’s Me

Thursday Threads #10: Catboy “Disney Park Costume” Quick Cosplay

Every time I visited Disneyland as a kid, I wanted to dress up SO badly.  But, if I was going to wear my dress, it would totally ruin it if I didn't wear the pretty shoes.  But the shoes hurt.  Like, guys, they're literally plastic.  How can I walk, walk, walk a day at Disney… Continue reading Thursday Threads #10: Catboy “Disney Park Costume” Quick Cosplay

Watch Wednesday #10: Anne of Green Gables

I feel like adapting book series for film is possibly the gutsiest thing you can ever step out to do.  When you're reading a book, you are managing the screenplay.  You are the director.  While there's a certain amount of description and direction put forth by the author, for the most part it is the… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #10: Anne of Green Gables

Tuesday Tunes #10: 3 Reasons Why I Love the Star Wars Prequels

When it comes to the Star Wars prequels--The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith--I don't think there's ever been a set of films hated so much. Still, all that disgust doesn't negate the trilogy's box office success.  The Phantom Menace was the highest grossing Star Wars film until The Force Awakens… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #10: 3 Reasons Why I Love the Star Wars Prequels

Manga Monday #10: Finding Your True Colors

Next year is my ten year high school reunion.  That's insane!  TEN YEARS.  I've really almost been out of high school that long?  I mean, it feels forever ago, but at the same time it feels like yesterday. Could that partly be due to the fact that I married my best friend from high school? George,… Continue reading Manga Monday #10: Finding Your True Colors

Freebie Friday #9: Itty Bitty Living Space

We've mentioned the Disney live-action remakes that are currently being plotted out for the next decade or so.  This includes 17 proposed live theatrical retellings of classic animated features, including The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Little Mermaid, and Pinocchio.

Thursday Threads #9: WALL-E “EVE’s Directive” Quick Cosplay

As my local comic con draws nearer, our quick cosplay ideas continue in full force.  This one is just as easy as our other suggestions, but it's also freaking cute.  Seriously, people may fall to the ground from the cute factor here. Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a tiny bit, but if you enjoy fast and… Continue reading Thursday Threads #9: WALL-E “EVE’s Directive” Quick Cosplay

Watch Wednesday #9: The Strongest Woman in the World

Foreign attitudes concerning gender are always interesting to me.  If you're as interested in the media provided by Eastern countries as I am, by now you probably have seen some fairly outdated cultural expectations based around gender; outdated in comparison to Western social standards, I mean. In Asian cultures, ideologies concerning women are still outdated… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #9: The Strongest Woman in the World
