Tuesday’s Top 5: Opening Themes in 2017

Last year I wrote my list on the top opening themes of 2016 and unsurprisingly Yuri On Ice's History Maker took out the top spot. This year there wasn't a single stand out song that really stuck with me, but there were lots of opening themes that really matched their show so it ended up … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Opening Themes in 2017

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime That Disappointed Me From 2017

Last week I gave my top 5 list of suprisingly good shows from 2017. This week I turn it around and share my top 5 disappointments from 2017. Like the last list, this isn't the list of shows I thought were the worst (those will come out in their own list with the reader's choices … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime That Disappointed Me From 2017

Tuesday’s Top 5: Surprisingly Good Shows That Came Out in 2017

One thing I'd like to make really clear is that this is not my list of best anime from 2017. That will come out in a few weeks time and will also include the results of the reader poll, so for the time being, I'm going to give some of my other top 5's from … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Surprisingly Good Shows That Came Out in 2017

Tuesday’s Top 5: Blog Posts in 2017

As the year draws to a close I figured it was time for a little bit of reflection so my count down this week isn't one of anime characters or shows but rather the 5 posts that caught my reader's attention over the year (working purely on views and not on engagement or actual quality … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Blog Posts in 2017

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Characters I’d Like To Invite To Christmas Lunch

Alright, so this is a pretty silly list but I was just thinking about the family lunch for Christmas and who I'd like to invite from the anime world to spice things up a bit (or to make them more sane, depending on your viewpoint really). My top 5 picks and reasons are below but … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Characters I’d Like To Invite To Christmas Lunch

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Vampires

This week I'm listing my top 5 favourite anime vampires (which I can't actually believe I hadn't already done so here we go). This is a nice simple list and really it is just based on how much I like the character rather than any particular vampiric traits, though I will admit I prefer vampires … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Vampires

Tuesday’s Top 5: Isekai Stories

With my current light novel fixation and the majority of these being isekai stories I decided to look at some of my favourite isekai anime. Now this list started with just being set in another world and then clearly made a distinction of stories where someone starts in one world and crosses to another (which … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Isekai Stories

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: Uses of Dream Sequences in Anime

Previously I looked at the best uses of phones in anime and this week I've decided to turn my attention to dream sequences. My criteria wasn't that these were the best dreams but the best use of a dream sequence to serve either the character development or the plot. This is strictly my opinion so … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Uses of Dream Sequences in Anime

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime That Make Me Cry

I'm sure all anime fans have a favourite series out there that they enjoy just because it hits them hard every time they watch it. That show, and that moment, that has you breaking down into tears. It isn't a feeling I seek out all that often but every now and then it is exactly … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime That Make Me Cry
