How Long Is The Romantic Anime Drought Going To Last?

Friday's Feature

I miss a story of simple boy meets girl (or you know, boy meets boy, girl meets girl, alien meets time travelling war lord) and they end up thrown together for whatever reason before they grow to fall in love. Something will cause a hiccup in the relationship but they overcome it and we end with a beautiful scene of the two together. Simple. Predictable. Beautiful. Be sure to read the whole post.

What Demon Slayer Has Been Getting Right, and What It Has Gotten Wrong

I've had a bit of a rocky history with typical shounen anime. While I am most definitely a fan of Bleach, and Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood worked a treat, most of the other big names never struck a chord with me and a lot of the standard protagonists make me wince (or in the case … Continue reading What Demon Slayer Has Been Getting Right, and What It Has Gotten Wrong

3 Reasons Why Flashbacks Aren’t Always The Best Narrative Device

Friday's Feature Banner Image

For anyone who has started Fairy Gone this season it should have immediately become apparent that in addition to the visual problems with the anime the narrative itself relies heavily on flashbacks and exposition to fill the audience in on information.
