Thoughts/Analysis on Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren so far (~Episode 05)

Let the cheek-pinch­ing com­mence! I got­ta say, if there’s any­thing keep­ing me from going insane from my ter­ri­ble, ter­ri­ble Pre-Cal­cu­lus class, it’s watch­ing the con­tin­u­a­tion of our ADHD-filled adven­tures with the “The Sum­mer of Far East Mag­ic Nap Club” when­ev­er I head home every week. Not only is it nice when you’re watch­ing a bunch […]

The use of review scores for anime and others

Image Cred­it: p‑suke from Pix­iv …and why I don’t use them. Now, if you’ve man­aged to fol­low my blog since its con­cep­tion (con­grat­u­la­tions for putting up with my non­sense), you’ll notice that when­ev­er I do overviews of an entire ani­me series (like Puel­la Magi Mado­ka Mag­i­ca and Mirai Nik­ki, the lat­ter of which I’m ashamed […]

Anime of 2012

Image Cred­it: wamochi It’s time to get down to busi­ness in pick­ing some nee­dles out of a haystack. Over­all, I’d say that this was a pret­ty weak year in terms of ani­me, but that isn’t to say there weren’t a hand­ful of series that man­aged to stick out, in both a good and a bad […]

Sword Art Online 12

Aw man, the feels were strong in this episode. which eas­i­ly makes this the best episode yet for SAO (aside from the first episode). The log­ic in this episode was pret­ty crap (the rather care­less place­ment of the GM con­sole with­in the game, Kirito/Asuna’s suprema­cy of hap­pi­ness with­in a sea of hun­dreds being added to […]

Sword Art Online Chapter 16.5 — Two years worth of EXP flowed into Asuna *GLOP GLOP*

So yeah, yes­ter­day’s post about Sword Art Online had me jok­ing about the fact that Asuna was insin­u­at­ing that they could have sex in SAO when she start­ed strip­ping in front of Kir­i­to. Because my com­mon sense told me that it was obvi­ous­ly impos­si­ble to do so unless they want­ed to teabag the whole night. […]

Sword Art Online 10: Pimp Master Kirito

The fact that Heath­cliff also has an extra skill gives me the impres­sion that every­one else should have them too (how many oth­er unique skills could have pos­si­bly been put into the game for 10,000 play­ers, with­out lead­ing to more than a few use­less ones?). When you take that into con­sid­er­a­tion, at least PvP isn’t […]
