I'm no stranger to rewatching shows. Even when I was a little kid, I would play VHS's literally to death. I'd watch my favourite shows and movies time after time, getting to the end of the video and instantly hitting rewind and beginning all over again. Once DVD's became a thing there were many titles … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: The Value Of Rewatches
There's something about growing up on a heavy dose of fairy tales and fantasy that leaves me with this ridiculous urge to still fantasise about the prince riding up on his noble steed and sweeping me off my feet, despite the fact that if common-sense hadn't knocked that notion out of me, Shrek really should have. And yet, I can't help but feel my heart do a little skip when we're introduced to an anime prince who looks like they might be the hero I was holding out for.

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
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?
There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.
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
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
There's a mouthful of a list name and I know I recently did my top 5 Zen and Shirayuki moments from season 1 after doing a rewatch of the show. However, while watching I also came up with a lot of questions for the characters that I'd just love to ask so I finally decided … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Questions I’d Like To Ask While Watching Snow White with the Red Hair
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
