Explaining the canon of Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card (anime), connection to the second film

Sakura is not amused by your ignorance!

Saku­ra is not amused by your igno­rance! Card­cap­tor Saku­ra: Clear Card marks the return of my all-time favorite mag­i­cal girl, Kinomo­to Saku­ra (and mag­i­cal boy, look­ing at you Syao­ran!) into the world of Japan­ese ani­ma­tion, start­ing off the 2018 year on a good note. And I’ve returned from the dead to explain some very com­mon […]

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Arc — Revival of a classic Magical Girl

As the quin­tes­sen­tial Card­cap­tor Saku­ra fan­boy around the blo­gos­phere, I felt it was only right for me to start writ­ing about my thoughts on this at some point. A con­tin­u­a­tion of the series after 20 years is a pret­ty big thing, after all. You could mess around with Digi­mon Adven­ture tri. or Drag­on Ball Super […]

Support Kodomo no Jikan

About six days ago, the Kick­starter for the Kodomo no Jikan Eng­lish local­iza­tion suc­cess­ful­ly raised enough mon­ey to offi­cial­ly bring this man­ga series to the Eng­lish-speak­ing world for the first time ever, since Sev­en Seas’ failed attempt to bring it over to the US as Nymphet in 2007. I’m famil­iar with the series, and hon­est­ly, […]

Back with new content and a new PC

Alright then… first post of 2016. Sor­ry about the sud­den dis­ap­pear­ance of new posts. What was sup­posed to be a month-long break from the blog for school turned out to be a dis­as­ter. You see, I was going to write a Christmas/New Years post about my 2015 weeb high­lights for 12 Days of Ani­me, but […]

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei Herz! — Final Impressions

This par­tic­u­lar sea­son of Fate/kaleid lin­er Pris­ma Illya was some­thing I was look­ing for­ward to. Some­what-dif­fer­­ent-but-still-best-girl, it pre­miered on my birth­day month, for one, and I hon­est­ly could­n’t wait to see Ko-Gil in action com­ing off from the man­ga. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, as enjoy­able as it still was for me on its own, Sil­ver Link did a […]

Oversensitive people shouldn’t indulge in creative media, ever

Rin’s look of dis­gust. Shin­ji being a sicko. The jus­tice served by Lancer (and more). This was from an ANN review of episode 19 of Fate/stay night Unlim­it­ed Blade Works, and no, I’m not going to link to it. If you real­ly want to read that review, look it up your­self, although I sug­gest not […]

Happy New Year!

Image Cred­it: あきのん from Pix­iv よいお年をお迎えください! It’s final­ly 2015 on my side of the world, guys! I did­n’t do a “12 Days of Ani­me” count­down for the end of 2014, but I’m still up to share some blurbs of my Japan­ese-relat­ed high­lights of 2014 all in one post (exclud­ing Fanime, you can see that post […]

Franchise Rant: Possibly the worst MANGA anniversary out there (Yuu☆gi☆ou/“Yu-Gi-Oh!” King film)

Best M&W Recent­ly, there’s been quite a few revivals of my favorite old school weeb Japan­ese fran­chis­es, most­ly con­nect­ed to spe­cial anniver­saries. To name a few, Card­cap­tor Saku­ra (North Amer­i­can license res­cued, new mer­chan­dise and art­work cel­e­brat­ing CLAM­P’s 25th anniver­sary), Digi­mon Adven­ture (upcom­ing Digi­mon Adven­ture tri.), Sailor Moon (Sailor Moon Crys­tal), Drag­on Ball (30th anniver­sary […]

Cardcaptor Sakura 【HD Rewatch】 24

はにゃーん Noth­ing much hap­pens in this episode in terms of devel­op­ment or char­ac­ter estab­lish­ment (if there was­n’t a Clow Card in these types of episodes, I would call them [good] filler), but it was extreme­ly fun nonethe­less. The episode title is “Saku­ra’s Lit­tle Adven­ture” — which is a great title, I see the pun there […]

Rurouni Kenshin: Tsuiokuhen Manga/Anime comparison (term paper by Johnny Nguyen)

Was­sup every­one. As I’ve stat­ed here, I’ve been tak­ing a Japan­ese Ani­ma­tion class this quar­ter at my com­mu­ni­ty col­lege, and as the quar­ter is com­ing to a close, there’s so many final assis­gn­ments that I have to do. For Japan­ese Ani­ma­tion class, I have to write a term paper regard­ing one of the ani­mat­ed fea­tures […]
