I could be the hype-man I typically am, because the thought of collabing with such a great aniblogger is awesome, but the content just isn’t hypeworthy. Check the link for why neither Karandi or I are thrilled by the fourth season of My Hero Academia at its current juncture.

I’m Going to Watch a Lot of Anime in December (of 2019)

I adore Winter. I love the quiet ambience as snow accumulates onto the ground. The stillness of the air and the growing desire to cozy oneself in warmed isolation away from the frozen outdoors, as if to not disturb its careful process. Some may look at the cover gif and see some Gothic picture in waiting, but to me, it’s almost spiritual in its beauty. October is Halloween, November is Thanksgiving, and December is Christmas—white, frosty, cheery Christmas vibes all the way through.

Since the demise of my cherished Summer of Anime block, I’ve done nothing of a similar vein for the anime medium since. This year, that will be different. I’ve decided that I’m going to be watching anime—a lot of it—throughout the month of December. Why? Because December is magical and so is anime. And I want to.

Hi Score Girl Deserves a Participation Trophy

A week into 2019, I started reading a quaint little manga called Hi Score Girl (occasionally titled as High Score Girl). In truth, this was not the first time I came across this series, as I’ve been wanting to read it ever since… well, ever since running across it on MyAnimeList all the way back in 2013 or so. It wasn’t until news broke that the series was ending in 2018 that I felt re-invigorated to finally try it out. What an interesting year it’s been, going through this story (and waiting months for individual chapters to scanlate). Continue reading “Hi Score Girl Deserves a Participation Trophy”
