This week's top 5 list counts down my favourite anime couples from 2018. They don't need to be canon, they don't need to actually end up together, they just need to be super-adorable and make my heart melt. I'd love to know which anime couples you fell in love with this season so be sure to leave me a comment below.
Record of Grancrest War is a fantasy series that doesn't seem to understand that cohesion is an absolute must when building a fantasy world. However, that's just the start of this anime's problems. Review: I really love fantasy. There's just something really great about stepping away from this world for awhile and losing yourself in … Continue reading Record of Grancrest War Series Review: Run While You Still Can

Much as we only found out the Mage Academy was the true enemy a handful of … Continue reading Record of Grancrest War Episode 22: So Now Theo’s The Enemy of the Church, Only Not Really?
Questions. So many questions. And I just don't think this world makes a whole lot of sense at this point in time.
