Friday’s Feature: Spare a Thought For The Victims

Last week I looked at visuals creating atmosphere in horror in the run up to Halloween and that was actually kind of fun. I don't really get into the visuals of shows all that often because I'm more focused on the plot and characters so it was nice to look at a different aspect for … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Spare a Thought For The Victims

Tuesday’s Top 5: Characters Robbed By Plot

This is another My Hero Academia inspired list after a discussion with a few people on Twitter and this comment: Which got me thinking of all the times characters have lost out in anime because the plot demands they lose. There are a lot. Of course that is true of any narrative because sometimes you … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Characters Robbed By Plot

Tuesday’s Top 5: Males with Silver Hair

Here's the list of my top 5 male anime characters with silver hair. I'm going to admit, this was a far harder list to put together than the female one. There are so many silver haired males out there that I wanted to include. Plus, splitting the one and two spot this week was all … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Males with Silver Hair

Friday’s Feature: What Does Orihime Really Contribute To Bleach?

There's no denying that I've been a massive Bleach fan for a fairly long time now. It was one of the first anime I watched as an adult and it really contributed to my ongoing love of anime. However, despite finding Bleach hilarious, entertaining, exciting, and just fun to watch, the flaws of the series … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: What Does Orihime Really Contribute To Bleach?

Tuesday’s Top 5: Girls in a Shonen Anime

I was inspired to write this list after watching My Hero Academia episode 22 on the weekend and then seeing this tweet: It got me thinking about all the female characters in shonen anime and how usually they get sidelined or end up in support roles (healer, archer, etc). So I started thinking about my … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Girls in a Shonen Anime

Tuesday’s Top 5: Fight Sequences

I thought this list would be pretty easy but then I ended up with a short list so long I couldn't even begin to figure out where to go from there so I've narrowed the field. This is my choice of top 5 fight sequences that involve a blade of some description. So magic fights, … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Fight Sequences

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime I’d Like to See Rebooted

Clearly this list is just a personal wish list. Essentially, there's a lot of anime out there with great premises and interesting ideas, but so many anime just don't make use of that potential or end really badly. Like, incredibly train derailed into mountain pass before sliding into a chasm badly. So this is my … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime I’d Like to See Rebooted

Tuesday’s Top 5: Visually Appealing Anime Titles

One thing  I learned absolutely while trying to write this list is I have a clear taste when it comes to how a series title should look on screen. Basically anime titles fall into three categories for me. Completely forgettable, eye-sore, or nailed it. There's very little middle ground. The ones in the list below … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Visually Appealing Anime Titles

Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Characters With Gorgeous Long Hair

While I try not to write too many posts about the physical characteristics of characters, this was a list I've wanted to write for awhile. Long hair on guys is just kind of amazing (or at least I think so). And when it billows in the wind and invites you to run your fingers through … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Characters With Gorgeous Long Hair

Friday’s Feature: We’ve Got a Problem Here – Man vs Man

For the month of March I've decided I'm going to focus on the negative. Quite literally. I'm going to focus my features this month on exploring types of conflict in stories using examples from anime. To start off with I decided to go with the most straight forward: Man vs Man. Or Human vs Human. … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: We’ve Got a Problem Here – Man vs Man
