  • The Balls Are Gathered & Then Scattered Once Again

    We’re finally at the end of a long journey. I’ve watched 291 episodes of anime and written 12 articles about them – including this one. That’s a lot. Easily the biggest undertaking I’ve had as a writer thus far. I actually dread to think about the word count of...

  • The Weakest Link

    I don’t know where to start with this season if I’m being honest. It’s the weakest season so far, the weirdest too, but not because it is bad. Just in that it is so different. It’s the harshest of handbrake turns in terms of the shift in tone; I...
