Tuesday’s Top 5: Non-Weapon Items Used as Weapons

Alright, this list could literally go on forever because anime has used a lot of items that we usually don't consider weapons in fights. Cards, coins, crosses, hair pins... You name it and some anime character somewhere has attempted to weaponise it (probably successfully). I narrowed this list down to characters and items that were … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Non-Weapon Items Used as Weapons

Tuesday’s Top 5: Character Poses

Pretty much every anime fan will admit that at some stage they definitely struck the pose of their favourite character (usually a fighter) in real life. There's something very cool about character poses on screen and something utterly ridiculous about using them in real life and yet some cosplayers really pull it off. Today my … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Character Poses

Tuesday’s Top 5: Girls in a Shonen Anime

I was inspired to write this list after watching My Hero Academia episode 22 on the weekend and then seeing this tweet: It got me thinking about all the female characters in shonen anime and how usually they get sidelined or end up in support roles (healer, archer, etc). So I started thinking about my … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Girls in a Shonen Anime

Tuesday’s Top 5: Fight Sequences

I thought this list would be pretty easy but then I ended up with a short list so long I couldn't even begin to figure out where to go from there so I've narrowed the field. This is my choice of top 5 fight sequences that involve a blade of some description. So magic fights, … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Fight Sequences

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime I’d Like to See Rebooted

Clearly this list is just a personal wish list. Essentially, there's a lot of anime out there with great premises and interesting ideas, but so many anime just don't make use of that potential or end really badly. Like, incredibly train derailed into mountain pass before sliding into a chasm badly. So this is my … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime I’d Like to See Rebooted

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime With Action

Alright, I've looked at romantic anime before but this time I'm shifting my focus to action. It is really hard to get a definitive classification on whether something is action or not. Does one fight sequence really make for action? And how do you compare action used for comedy with gritty realistic fight sequences, and … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime With Action

Friday’s Feature: You Have No Power Over Me – Man vs Self

This is my last feature for March and my last feature for now on conflict so I'm ending the month with Man vs Self. If you've missed any of the previous posts on Man vs Man, Man vs Nature, Man vs Technology or Man vs Society be sure to check out the posts. I'm not … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: You Have No Power Over Me – Man vs Self

Tuesday’s Top 5: Female Characters with Blonde Hair

This was a seriously hard list to narrow down and even then I'm still torn over some of the decisions. The issue is unlike with red-heads and the blue-haired ladies, there are so many different types of blonde characters that it gets hard to decide who your favourite is. I did finally make a decision … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Female Characters with Blonde Hair

Soul Eater Series Review

Welcome to my 50th anime series review! And it's a special one: Soul Eater. Overview: The DWMA (Death Weapon Meister Academy) operates in Death city and works to train Weapons (people who can transform into weapons) and Meisters (those who can wield weapons) in order to fight against evil souls, witches and whatever else get's … Continue reading Soul Eater Series Review

Top 5 Tuesday: The Most Fun Titles from Bones

Usually I don't really care which studio is responsible for an anime. However, Bones is the exception to that rule. I have found time and time again when watching an anime that I think is amazing that it just happened to be from Bones. So in recent years I have actively sought out anime from … Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday: The Most Fun Titles from Bones
