Reading Between Reviews: Attack on Titan, Season 2

Season 2 of Attack on Titan had a lot to live up to.

Reading Between Reviews: Chaos;Head

  Every so often, you learn about an anime that sounds great in theory, but isn’t pulled off so well in practice.

A Love Letter to Keijo!!!!!!

A while back, a rather strange anime was released.  The Winter of 2016.  It appeared to be completely ludicrous, a series based solely on the concept of fanservice.  Keijo!!!!!! took the Western world by storm, attracting people at first with the promises of breasts and butts, but then keeping them hooked with sheer lunacy andContinue reading “A Love Letter to Keijo!!!!!!”

Reading Between Reviews: Clannad!

I’ve wanted to review this one for a while now. Clannad is one of those series that is near and dear to many people’s hearts.  I talked about it recently, as my second favorite story of all time, and from what I know, it was an emotional trip for almost everyone that’s watched it.  ButContinue reading “Reading Between Reviews: Clannad!”
