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

Tuesday’s Top 5: Slice of Life Anime

Slice of Life isn't exactly my favourite genre when it comes to anime. I find a lot of these stories fairly lacking in direction, slow paced, and just a little bit dull and yet every now and then I come across one that for some reason takes my fancy and then it becomes one of … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Slice of Life Anime

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Moments That Make Me Flinch

So Halloween today and this year I have put together a top 5 list of anime moments that make me flinch. I am not a squeamish person by nature and when it is happening in anime, I'm even less likely to flinch because anime characters don't look like real people, and yet there are some … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Moments That Make Me Flinch

Tuesday’s Top 5: Yokai Anime

Having spent the last two weeks looking at favourite yokai characters I am now looking at my top 5 favourite anime that contain yokai. There probably won't be any surprises on this list given where my favourite yokai characters came from, but here we go anyway. I have avoided any anime that is more focused … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Yokai Anime

Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Yokai

Continuing on from last week where I looked at my top 5 favourite female yokai, this week we have my top 5 male yokai. I must admit, my first draft had a lot fox yokai on the list and even the revised version hasn't really fixed that issue. Apparently I like foxes. Anyway, as always, … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Yokai

Tuesday’s Top 5: Female Yokai

Seems like October is an appropriate time to bring out lists on yokai and similar topics so my Top 5 today is focussing on female yokai characters. I started with quite an enormous list of characters and narrowing it down was difficult but eventually I picked my 5 favourite female characters that also happen to … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Female Yokai
