Merry Days of Anime 2020: Megalo Box

Many words were written about anime this season. A lot more than written over the course of the year, as my interest in the anime medium has slowly dwindled. Whether that says more about me as a person or the medium itself is debatable, but one thing’s for sure: I’m not much of an anime man anymore. More of a recommendation dispenser. I’ve seen so many that I’m able to take a quick browse through my list and give about three or four recommendations per genre. Like an old sage with a Word document. Where am I going with this?

Take a look with me at the genres associated with this anime as labeled by MyAnimeList. Ecchi. Harem. Comedy. And the parent source? A light novel. All of these qualities combine to mean one thing, right? That I’m going to hate it. The slop of the anime medium only created to appeal to loser NEETs that get off to having cute girls stomp on them, hiding their true feelings. I’ve made my preferences more than transparent enough for readers to know that this will not be of any interest to me whatsoever. Well… about that… Continue reading “Merry Days of Anime: Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? (Re-Watch)”
