Top 10 Trivial Anime Pet Peeves

top 10 annoying anime things 1

Every hardcore anime fan has some. Things about the anime medium that make them groan, cry, or maybe even wish they were never an anime fan. While these things seem a little extreme, some nuisances are so ingrained within the medium that it begins to add to an overwhelming amount of negativity with each series, limiting what one can enjoy among the vast selection.

We’re not gonna focus on these things today. Instead, I’m gonna nitpick like it’s my career. Continue reading “Top 10 Trivial Anime Pet Peeves”

A few disclaimers before we move forward:

Euripedes was the first character I ever made. That remains a fact. What I tend to remember more fondly, however, is the troll mage I made sometime afterwards. I even remember the name… which was… nevermind, I don’t remember what it was. It was some vowel-heavy gobbledygook. It was the first character I leveled to the level cap within the free trial period, and I sure was impressed with myself. I don’t remember if I made that troll again once getting the full game.

Top 10 NFL Players Who Have Earned a Championship, but Probably Won’t Get One (2019 Edition)

nfl deserve ring 11

About five years ago, I wrote a piece on then-current NFL players who most deserved a championship win on their resume based on their on-field performance, but were unlikely to get one due to their team’s success or their current age. Since then, seven of the ten players I included onto the list have retired—only one of them ended up getting a Super Bowl ring. With an ongoing game such as the NFL, revisions are necessary in order to keep lists interesting and current, honoring players for their craft while also instilling a sense of history. Four seasons and seven retired players seem adequate enough to update this list. Continue reading “Top 10 NFL Players Who Have Earned a Championship, but Probably Won’t Get One (2019 Edition)”

The Transformers: The Movie Review

Yes, it’s seriously called that.

I try not to exaggerate when I say this, but this is one of the first films I ever remember watching, in a dark room accompanied by my cousin attempting not to fall asleep. At such a young age, I was amazed at all the action scenes, the robo-transformations, and the rock n’ roll soundtrack. Despite this initial introduction, I have seen this film very few times… maybe twice in my life? Three times? All of those times came at a very young age, likely at six or seven-years-old. Last night, I watched it again after nearly twenty years. How does it hold up? Continue reading “The Transformers: The Movie Review”

Quick Thoughts on Sekai Seifuku: Bouryaku no Zvezda

sekai seifuku

The decision to watch this was slightly inspired by Irina from Idrinkandwatchanime, who gave this anime a glowing recap in a post of underappreciated titles. While I didn’t find myself loving this as much as she did, I can definitely find the same enthusiasm for the cuteness of the characters.

In the far-back year of 2006, I played World of Warcraft for the very first time. The first character I ever made was a tauren by the name of Euripedes, inspired by a character’s name from Gregor the Overlander. He was a hunter, and while I don’t recall how high of a level I got that specific iteration, I later remade him when I got the full game and was the highest-leveled character I had ever worked on to that point (mid-forties).
