Friday's Feature Banner Image

I've really come to hate the word bullying. It isn't just that acts described as bullying are morally repugnant, it is more that the term gets thrown around to cover everything from excluding someone, minor pranks, staring at them, talking behind their back, openly harassing them, directly sabotaging their person, profession or possessions, to full … Continue reading A Comparison of the Portrayal of Bullying in Anime

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

Review: March Comes in Like a Lion has returned at last after its three week break and they have plunged us straight into the title match between Shimada and Yanagihara.
