LN Review: Tsubasa Song (Monogatari Short Stories)

It seems this time we’ve got a chapter about Hanekawa. I’m sure there are a lot of fans out there who’ve been waiting for this one!

And surprise surprise, she invited him to karaoke which I recently learned … Continue reading LN Review: Tsubasa Song (Monogatari Short Stories)

LN Review: Nadeko Pool (Monogatari Short Stories)

…. sigh. Alright I said Wednesday that I’d give this chapter a fair chance, but did it have to involve a swimsuit? Come on Araragi, I thought we covered this in Hachikuji’s chapter. Ehh who am I kidding? It’s Monogatari. Now if you’re familiar with the Monogatari anime (which I imagine you are if you’re reading this) you may have already guessed where this chapter … Continue reading LN Review: Nadeko Pool (Monogatari Short Stories)

LN Review: Sugura Court (Monogatari Short Stories)

I finally started posting individualized headers for these chapters! Free storage space be damned! And just in time for the debut of everyone’s favorite lewd devil-armed athlete.

Things begin with a surprisingly lengthy misunderstanding, as Araragi decided to challenge Kanbaru via handwritten … Continue reading LN Review: Sugura Court (Monogatari Short Stories)

The first is of course the classic wordplay between Hachikuji and Araragi that actually helps improve my own Japanese. The second, and … Continue reading LN Review: Mayoi Room (Monogatari Short Stories)

Music Review: 打首獄門同好会 (Uchikubi Gokumon Doukoukai)

「君の名は。」Your Name. Review

I thought about calling this review, “I Finally Watched Your Name. and You Should Too!”, but analytics are telling me you guys prefer the shorter, more reasonable, titles. And well who am I to argue with highly intelligent robot statistics? Wait what was I talking about? Oh right, the hit anime movie by Makoto Shinkai that came out a few years ago, Kimi no Na wa., or … Continue reading 「君の名は。」Your Name. Review
