March Comes in Like a Lion Episodes 43 & 44: An End and a Beginning

I'm really going to keep this short despite covering both episodes, because I know the season review of this anime is going to be crazy long already.

What I will say is that this is a perfect send of … Continue reading March Comes in Like a Lion Episodes 43 & 44: An End and a Beginning

March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 39: Not Wanting To Lose Takes Many Forms

March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 11.5

Review: Well, you should know I hate recap episodes by now so 11.5 isn't exactly going to do much for me. That said, at least the timing on this makes sense. If you didn't pick up this show in Autumn but are considering it (given it is continuing on in the Winter season), 11.5 does … Continue reading March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 11.5

Friday’s Feature: Constructing Characters Through Visuals in Anime

A while back I made the point that I don't really like comparing anime when I review them but there are times when a comparison can help to clarify meaning (Comparing Apples and Oranges). This week I am going to be comparing two current anime and their use of visuals to construct meaning. I am … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Constructing Characters Through Visuals in Anime
