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
I’ve got a post coming out a little later that goes into this more, but I’ve felt like I’ve been in a bit of a slump lately. It could be all the papers I have to write for finals, or the relentless stress of upcoming bills, but I’ve been feeling awfully tired and unmotivated lately. So when I picked Barakamon back up after a few … Continue reading Barakamon. The calligraphy slice of life I didn’t know I needed.
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!

When the elderly curator of an exhibition criticizes his calligraphy for being too unoriginal (“like a textbook”), Seishū gets angry and punches … Continue reading First Impressions: Barakamon
Shirokuma Cafe is a slice of life, slapstick anime that uses Japanese wordplay as a convenient way to help teach Japanese.

First things first if you find yourself wanting to watch this show, be very careful of where you watch. I don’t just mean your physical location, though that’s certainly a factor, but the source you’re watching from as well. I found out you might get more than you bargained for if you accidentally stumbled upon the Blu-ray version… Anywho the show is available on Hulu, … Continue reading Anime Review: Boku Wa Tomodachi Ga Sukunai (I don’t have many friends)
