Friday’s Feature: Finding Joy and Inspiration In Watching Anime Characters Succeed

I'm not going to lie. I've been feeling pretty down recently. After work travel followed by travel for a wedding and then straight back to work even though I had a fairly bad cold, I've been feeling really tired and run-down and finding it hard to really get any motivation to do much of anything. … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Finding Joy and Inspiration In Watching Anime Characters Succeed

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?

Tuesday’s Top 5: Sequels

I tend to run sequels down a lot (see Feature Discussing Sequels and Prequels), which is sometimes justified, but occasionally there are sequels, part 2's, and follow ups that actually do add something to a series and are fairly enjoyable to watch. So I decided to think about all the good sequels out there for … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Sequels

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime With A Colour in the Title

This week's list is a bit strange but I started wondering about how many anime actually used colours as part of their title and that took me down a meandering mental path that I won't bore you with but the end result was this list. Essentially my favourite 5 anime that use any colour in … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime With A Colour in the Title

Tuesday’s Top 5: Zen and Shirayuki Moments

I promised this one on Twitter and I kind of had to do this list anyway because while rewatching the first season of Snow White with the Red Hair I fell in love with this couple all over again. I also realised just how many good moments they had together on screen. Which is kind … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Zen and Shirayuki Moments

Friday’s Feature: On Romance in Anime

As we get ready for Valentine's Day (or get ready to be totally indifferent to anything that might resemble a public declaration of affection) I thought it was a good time to focus on romance and how it is portrayed in anime. This week I'm looking at the warm and fluffy side of romance. Next … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: On Romance in Anime

Reflections on Anime in 2016 – The Best and The Worst of the Year (in my opinion)

It's the first day of the year so let's look back at the year that was. I know that at the end of Summer I did my first reflection post looking back at the anime I'd watched and  I purposefully left D Gray Man and Sailor Moon Crystal 3 off the lists because nostalgia was … Continue reading Reflections on Anime in 2016 – The Best and The Worst of the Year (in my opinion)
