I don’t think I mentioned this in my Barakamon review, but I actually started watching Handa-kun before realizing it was a prequel. In fact I think I only found out about the show from this gif; That gif is actually a great example of what you can expect from the show, and to be honest if they’d dropped the idea of it being a prequel … Continue reading Anime Review: Handa-kun. The comedic nonsensical “prequel” to Barakamon.
Featured Image from SteamyTomato or maybe JWALL? Also just noticed the Funhaus logo on the mug ^_^ What a sweet and fun series! No wonder I finished all 13 episodes in less than 24 hours! I briefly mentioned yesterday in my First Impressions post, but I only really started this series because I saw a cosplay by Jessica Nigri as Lucoa and felt like giving it a shot. … Continue reading Anime Review: Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid
When this show first popped up about a year ago I started seeing some awesome cosplays of it, but never knew the name. Fortunately Crunchyroll is always promoting different stuff, so it just kind of popped into my view and I decided to give the first episode a try. It was amazing to say the least.

The story focuses around the everyday lives of a group of animals mingling with humans at a café run by a polar … Continue reading Short Anime Review: Shirokuma Cafe (Polar Bear Cafe)
Nothing but spoilers ahead! After all this time we finally have the second season of Master of None available on Netflix! I’ve enjoyed most of Aziz Ansari’s work, except maybe his role in the last season of Scrubs, and I remember binging the first season of Master of None like there was no tomorrow. Season two is quite possibly better than the first, and starts … Continue reading TV Review: Master of None (Season 2)
I was actually at an anime club when I first saw Samurai Flamenco. The name turned me off to the show, but after watching the first episode I was hooked. The first six episodes were very relatable as the main character finds his path as a hero in the “regular” world. However from episode seven on, the show takes a supernatural turn with monsters, aliens, and … Continue reading Anime Review: Samurai Flamenco aka The Anime That Could’ve Been
