Dissociative Identity Disorder, and Finding One’s “True Self”: Boku wa Mari no Naka

Having multiple personalities can be a lot stranger then one might initially believe. Boku wa Mari no Naha is a strange manga–definitely the strangest I’ve read in a long while.  But that doesn’t make it bad at all, of course not.  On the contrary, it’s one of the most fascinating stories I’ve experienced as ofContinue reading “Dissociative Identity Disorder, and Finding One’s “True Self”: Boku wa Mari no Naka”

The Legend of Zelda: A Psycho-Analysis of The Usurper King

Anyone else hype to play the Switch? Anyways, in honor of the release of the Switch, and of course, The Legend of Zelda, Breath of The Wild, I wanted to take a look at one of the best one-time villains of the series, Zant. Zant, The King of Shadows, the Usurper King, was featured inContinue reading “The Legend of Zelda: A Psycho-Analysis of The Usurper King”

Orange: Kakeru’s Depression, and an Application to Real Life

Warning: With this topic, I write rather honestly and personally on thoughts involving Depression, and as such, makes for a longer, more emotion-driven post.  It shouldn’t be anything too heavy, but if that’s not your thing, just wanted to give you a heads up! Okay, so, Orange. Kakeru, the central focus of Orange’s plot, spokeContinue reading “Orange: Kakeru’s Depression, and an Application to Real Life”

A Psycho-Analysis of the Tsundere

The Tsundere is an ever-present part of anime, undisputedly one of the most well-known character stereotypes, if not the most well known.  There are three other primary character types- the kuudere, the yandere, and the dandere, but let’s be honest, Tsundere is without a doubt the most well known and distinctive.  I mean, there’s tsundereContinue reading “A Psycho-Analysis of the Tsundere”

A Coming-of-Age Story: Bubbles, and Innocence in Steven Universe!

Overwatch: Diagnosing the Widow and the Reaper

Today, we’re going back to Overwatch for another look at the two most aggressive, murderous, and evil characters in the game: Widowmaker, and Reaper.  These two are the closest things we have to recurring antagonists, and it’s clear that their desire for violence and bloodshed is extraordinary.  Widowmaker’s profession as an assassin, and Reaper’s willingnessContinue reading “Overwatch: Diagnosing the Widow and the Reaper”

Life Is Money: Sensory Deprivation’s Effect on the Brain

It’s obvious: people go to extreme lengths for the sake of cash.  Most blatantly, people can rob a bank, a gas station, hold others up at gunpoint, but such desire for money can be shown in other means as well.  Questionable business decisions, moral ambiguity, participation in crazy game shows, money is quite often theContinue reading “Life Is Money: Sensory Deprivation’s Effect on the Brain”

Psycho Pass: How to Measure Criminality?

  Heyo, Ayron here, and I’ve just gotta say I’ve been missing out on some great anime.  Haven’t been keeping up with recent ones as much as I’d like, Re:Zero, Orange, Erased, etc.  In place of those, I’ve been making my way through a series a good friend recommended to me: Psycho-Pass. For those unaware, theContinue reading “Psycho Pass: How to Measure Criminality?”
