Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Anime Characters With Pink Hair

Tuesday's Top 5

It's been awhile since I've done a colour list and I actually struggled a bit with 5 males I liked with pink hair. The female list which will come out next week was definitely easier to come up with. That said, there are some interesting characters on the list below and as always I'd love … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Anime Characters With Pink Hair

Snow White with the Red Hair Season 1 Series Review

Overview: Shirayuki lives in the kingdom of Tanbarun as a herbalist until one day the Prince (having heard of her unusual hair colour) orders her to become his concubine. Rather than accepting that fate, she cuts off her hair (in a somehow perfectly straight line) and crosses the border into the Kingdom of Clarines. There … Continue reading Snow White with the Red Hair Season 1 Series Review

Tuesday’s Top 5: Trains and Train Sequences in Anime

Tuesday's Top 5

I love a good train sequence and I know I'm not alone. There's a reason why it is a staple of action movies and dramas alike. Trains can let the cast sit back and have those poignant conversations to catch the audience up on details and ensure that the characters can't escape midway through, they … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Trains and Train Sequences in Anime

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Characters with a Tragic Backstory

Tuesday's Top 5

Are there any anime protagonists who have a happy backstory? Because that might be something a bit different given the sheer number of characters who come from a past of misery and despair. Okay, I hadn't really thought about what I was in for when I started drafting this list and to be honest, it … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Characters with a Tragic Backstory

Friday’s Feature: Strong Female Character?

I've mentioned before that I am a huge fan of Joss Whedon's work. As a teenager in the 90's it was more or less impossible not to get on-board the Buffy bandwagon, and it was such a great bandwagon to be on. A female character who was reasonably attractive, had street smarts (though struggled at … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Strong Female Character?

Friday’s Feature: Problem Solver

When I wrote this piece originally it had been on my mind for awhile. The idea that  fiction is a fairly distorted way of experiencing reality. Not saying that's a bad thing, by distorting certain aspects of what is real other points can be more easily framed and foregrounded. Complex emotional ideas that usually get … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Problem Solver

Tuesday’s Top 5: Character Quirks

Tuesday's Top 5

Okay, if you are looking for quirky characters, anime has you covered. However, there are some characters who just have one specific trait that in some ways ends up defining them. This is my list of favourite quirks that complement the other features of the character, fit into the narrative being told, and still manage … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Character Quirks

Tuesday’s Top 5: Pets and Mascot Characters

Tuesday's Top 5

Mostly pets and mascot characters are either superfluous to a show or just plain annoying (yes, Kinako from Twin Star Exorcists I am looking at you), however every now and then one of these characters actually does draw you along into the show, or help the plot along significantly, or just lightens the mood and … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Pets and Mascot Characters

Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Anime Characters Who Wear Glasses

Tuesday's Top 5

This list originally came out in 2016 and needless to say the plethora of male anime characters rocking smoking hot glasses has not come to a halt in the last two years and so it is definitely time for an update to this list. The problem is, I don't really want to take anyone off … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Anime Characters Who Wear Glasses
