…and you know, let me say this right off the bat—Watamote (with the full Japanese title of “Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui!” or the English title of “No Matter How I Look At It, It’s You Guys’ Fault I’m Not Popular!”)… Read more.

Bocchi the Rock

I found out about Bocchi the Rock sometime either around when its first episode aired or shortly before then—I got recommended some random article about it and thought it seemed interesting, so I put it on my ever expanding plan-to-watch list assuming it was probably obscure.… Read more.


Many, many times in the past, I have referenced K-On’s “sense of grand scale”, a point of discussion I use for many other shows I watch both in and out of its genre—but what exactly does that mean?… Read more.

So why in the name of God almighty did somebody decide it would be a fuckin’ awesome idea to take this game, strip away the only part of it worth a damn and turn it into a “family friendly” 12-episode long torture session?!… Read more.
