Thursday Threads #39: Sailor Moon is Forever

Sailor Moon is that sort of show that has one of the strongest influences to ever come out of any Asian country.  You see it on every continent, influencing creators in all aspects.  Animation, television, movies, music (hello, Smash Mouth)--you name it, the Moon Rabbit probably has her gloved hand in it somehow.  It's just… Continue reading Thursday Threads #39: Sailor Moon is Forever

Tuesday Tunes #36: My Hero Academia’s “ODD FUTURE” Screencaps

This past weekend was the release of the first episode of My Hero Academia's third season.  If you're a newcomer looking to jump into the series without the effort of watching the entire series thus far, this season three opener is the perfect jumping in point for you! The first episode of the season, "Game Start",… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #36: My Hero Academia’s “ODD FUTURE” Screencaps

Freebie Friday #35: Itadakimasu!

For me, one of the most enjoyable things about jumping into the television, film, and comic books of other countries is the cultural learning that inadvertently comes through that media consumption.  The world is obviously full of people all shapes and sizes, but it also includes hundreds or even thousands of different ways to viewing… Continue reading Freebie Friday #35: Itadakimasu!

Watch Wednesday #31: Mob Psycho 100 is the Greatest Acid Trip I’ve Ever Seen

Okay, I'm going to be honest here, I've never actually had an acid trip, so clearly me terming Mob Psycho 100 as the "greatest acid trip I've ever seen" should be the "closest thing to an acid trip I've ever seen".  But that's a really freaking long sentence just for the point of accuracy, don't you think?… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #31: Mob Psycho 100 is the Greatest Acid Trip I’ve Ever Seen

Tuesday Tunes #31: Ref:rain

There's nothing quite like a perfectly epic romantic ballad.  Back in middle school, I remember my sister would write out her favorite sentimental lyrics everywhere she could.  Sheets of paper, covers of notebooks, even on her shoes.  I realized very quickly that there was just something relaxing about scribing out those dreamy words, and I… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #31: Ref:rain

Watch Wednesday #28: A Silent Voice Deserved the Win

Both Your Name as well as A Silent Voice were snubbed in the Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Feature Film--in favor for, believe it or not, the likes of Boss Baby.  Now, we all know that the Academy Awards are more political than an actual representation of what's actually the "best of the best", but it certainly… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #28: A Silent Voice Deserved the Win

Watch Wednesday #22: Clear Card Prologue Confession Scene Screencaps

I couldn't help myself, I had to screencap the confession scene in the Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card prologue that I mentioned in my post yesterday.  But, hey, I thought it would be a different feature to Watch Wednesday, to have screen caps of some beautiful scenes rather than me just babbling incessantly, right?  Doesn't that sound nice?… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #22: Clear Card Prologue Confession Scene Screencaps

Tuesday Tunes #22: Cardcaptor Sakura Opening Songs

When I first started watching anime in its original Japanese format, I always thought it was really interesting how they approached their opening credits.  First, anime uses the opening song as a chance to flex their animation muscles. Rather than being a bunch of random clips strung together to the music, it's animation created specifically… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #22: Cardcaptor Sakura Opening Songs

Watch Wednesday #12: Snow White with the Red Hair

When I was little, I was incredibly keen on the idea of a prince coming and sweeping me off my feet.  I remember getting into bed one night and realizing that I had forgotten to brush my teeth.  I thought, "Meh, whatever, I'm going to sleep," but as I snuggled in I thought, "Wait, what… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #12: Snow White with the Red Hair
