There's a definite distance created when watching anime. In real life I cannot stand the smell of smoke or cigarettes and yet there are some anime characters out there that just look perfectly right when they light up their smoke, pipe, or whatever else. So today I am counting down my favourite 5 characters who are smokers.
It is fairly accepted these days that games inspire movies, TV shows, and anime and a lot of these aren't great. It also is fairly well accepted that popular shows and franchises might get a game spin-off but usually these are pretty much pandering to fans of the source and while some of these games … Continue reading Top 5 Anime I’d Love To Play If They Were An RPG
We all know anime can teach us many things and be entertaining in the process, but what were the top 5 lessons I took from anime last year?

I'd love to know … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Antagonists With Inhuman Characteristics
