Thoughts on Mob Psycho 100 Season Two

mob psycho II cover

I was pretty entertained by Mob Psycho 100‘s first season. Based on its first episode (which I watched prior to leaving the show on-hold as it finished out the season), I wondered if it might take a more normal approach this time around. The episodes that followed only strengthened that assumption, before everything that I never would have expected came flying back at me like a punch from an esper god. My face still hurts.

That changes now—or at the very least, I’ll know what studio is generally accommodating of my interests. Continue reading “Highlighting the Best Anime Studios (Based on My Average Scores)”

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”
