Ase to Sekken (Sweat and Soap) | My New Favourite Manga.

I will admit, manga isn’t something I dabble too often in. Well, not as much as I used to. When I was younger, I would watch anime and read manga, but as time went on, things naturally changed. Until December rolled around. There was something within me that wanted to read a manga. I didn’t…

Takt Op. Destiny | Anime Review: A lesser Guilty Crown.

** SPOILERS ALL AROUND ** When I think of Takt Op. Destiny, I think of Guilty Crown, and there is no way I can avoid making such a comparison. Everything about Takt Op.

Komi-san wa, Comyushou desu. | E9 – E10: Episodic Goodness.

Out of all the episodes I’ve seen, I think that the ninth and tenth episode of Komi-san wa, Comyushou desu. were its best episodes.

Senpai ga Uzai Kouhai no Hanashi | Episode Ten: A day on the basketball court.

Episode ten was great because it had so many funny and entertaining moments. Like there was a little bit of everything for everyone, which meant that pretty much every scene had its own little quirk. Did you want Kazama and Sakura? You got ’em. How about Igarashi and Takeda? Sure, the episode has them as…

Takt Op. Destiny | Episode Eleven: The Final Boss.

You know what? Episode eleven of Takt Op. Destiny feels very Naruto-esk. Now you may be asking yourself, “How do these two polar opposite anime share?” Well, Sagan, in a way, is like Madara, in how Sagan has been pulling the strings behind the scenes. Sagan is or was, the man behind the rise of…
