Power in anime fascinates me. Even when I first started my blog back in 2016, I wanted to look at anime characters, the fantastical powers they had and the costs their stories extracted from them. As My Hero Academia gears up once again and super-powered teens are pushed to their limit, it is probably timely for me to review this post and give it a bit of a revamp. First posted May 2016.
Watching Cop Craft this season got me thinking. I love police procedural stories and I love buddy cop action movies with a bit of comedy and yet I don't come across these kinds of stories in anime very often. Whether it is Bones, Castle, NCIS, Lethal Weapon or any of the myriad of TV shows … Continue reading Top 5 Anime About Police
It is fairly accepted these days that games inspire movies, TV shows, and anime and a lot of these aren't great. It also is fairly well accepted that popular shows and franchises might get a game spin-off but usually these are pretty much pandering to fans of the source and while some of these games … Continue reading Top 5 Anime I’d Love To Play If They Were An RPG

Anyway, huge thank-you for the tag and let's see … Continue reading My Pirate Crew
I'm no stranger to rewatching shows. Even when I was a little kid, I would play VHS's literally to death. I'd watch my favourite shows and movies time after time, getting to the end of the video and instantly hitting rewind and beginning all over again. Once DVD's became a thing there were many titles … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: The Value Of Rewatches
Last week we did the list of top 5 anime females with black hair focussing on the cool beauties of the anime world. This week my attention shifts to the male characters and I think my main focus here was focussed and dependable. That said, there are an enormous number of males with ebony hair … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Guys with Black Hair
Okay, I've already covered blonde, red and blue hair so today I am tackling silver hair (though I won't argue if you want to tell me some of these characters have white or gray hair). Next week I'll share me list of the guys with silver hair and I had a lot more fun with … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Females with Silver Hair
This week's list is a bit strange but I started wondering about how many anime actually used colours as part of their title and that took me down a meandering mental path that I won't bore you with but the end result was this list. Essentially my favourite 5 anime that use any colour in … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime With A Colour in the Title
Last week I went through my top 5 female characters with blonde hair so now it is time to turn my attention to the guys. And I thought narrowing down the list of female characters was hard. There's quite a range of blonde male characters to choose from but I think I ended up with … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Characters with Blonde Hair
