Author stand-in characters are nothing new. Even before the dawn of film, writers were obsessed with being writers and wrote stories about being a writer writing stories.

One of what I think the biggest media to be about a topic like this was by a little-known horror author named Stephen King and his novel and film called "Misery". This story was about a professional novelist getting saved by his "biggest fan" after suffering a car accident before he was about to publish the last book in a highly popular series. To make a long story short, the fan became really possessive and controlling of the read more

A lot of people have been referring to 3rei!! as the "Heaven's Feel" of this magical girl spin-off. Actually, a lot of people have just been calling it the second-coming of Heaven's Feel, as even the fan translations from Beast Lair have been scribbling out the title card and writing "Fate/stay night Heaven's Feel" over it.

3rei!! is undoubtedly the darkest arc of Fate/Illya, and the further you read into it, the darker it becomes. That said, has it reached the crushing emotional weight of Heaven's Feel? Not really. Will it reach there eventually... that is debatable.

Before I go on... a brief backstory.

Citrus (Anime) add (All reviews)
*ORIGINALLY UPLOADED MARCH 24, 2018

Winter 2018 brought us an adaptation of an ongoing yuri manga named Citrus, which began publication in 2012 in one of the most popular yuri magazine, Comic Yuri Hime!. Citrus may very well be the most popular yuri manga to date, both in Japan and in the west, just look at MAL’s popularity rankings for proof of that claim. Though highly anticipated by the audience keeping up with the series’ bi-monthly schedule, the anime was announced alongside a similar manga series named Netsuzou Trap, which bore a… less than satisfactory adaptation in Summer 2017, ultimately putting the yuri community on edge read more

Reigen. Mob Psycho 100's most beloved character, perhaps even surpassing the titular character himself. So what is this special about?

Well, the Mob Psycho 100 Reigen Special is about Reigen writing a book about his "experiences" with the supernatural. But as we all know Reigen is the biggest con in the entire series, and so are most of the recaps.

I think this special has truly opened my eyes to how damn good Bones is at animating recap episodes and keeping them fresh (I think the only thing that beats this recap episode is that one back in Re:Creators).

Retelling the events in the series from Reigen's read more

Honestly, I was disappointed by Ryuuou no Oshigoto, or The Ryou's work is Never Done.

Perhaps it was because Joey The Anime Man interviewed the creator a while back? At the time, I found both Joey's views and the Author's expression of his story to be particularly fascinating, not to mention how high it made in the Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi contest a year or so ago.

Bottom line, I heard a lot of things about it and I was excited, and even when the first two episodes aired, I was convinced that there had to be at least something that made it popular enough read more

Before anyone can answer the question: "What is Pop Team Epic?" I believe a more pressing question is more like "Why in hell am I writing a serious review of this shit post?"

Actually, I have an answer to that question, unlike the first one. First of all, I love my absurd and nonsensical Chinese cartoons; I have a special place in my heart (and in some case my Top 10) for shows like Nichijou, Daily Lives of HS Boys, and of course, Gintama. That said, I don't really think Pop Team Epic can really stand up to those shows when we are talking about how read more

I feel like I didn't give the manga as much credit as I should have the first time I started reading this. Granted, some of it was a misunderstanding, for which I can't entirely wrap my head around, but I feel I should vindicate most previous statements I had said about it.

Though, at the very least, I still maintain that the manga is a watered-down version of its source material, but that doesn't mean you should skip it. I feel the manga is a very nice starting point to the Forgetful Detective series if you just want to feel out what it is.

A great work of art is more than just an expression of the self that resonates with others. No matter what, that great work of art wouldn’t have existed without the culmination of experiences you have as an artist.

Learning and experimenting on how to express your ideas in ways that work—in the process, learning your own identity, and what makes you and your style unique. That is the struggle of being an artist. Everyone is different, and even if you are a drop of water in an ocean of talent, if you stretch your own capabilities to the limit, you are guaranteed to find someone read more

Read the light novel!

Ok to quickly summarize the advertisement here, basically, it's just Hanekawa cosplaying as Okitegami Kyouko from the Boukyaku Tantei Series, NisiOisiN's other series that takes place in the same universe as Monogatari.

I am reading the recent fan translations of the light novel as we speak, and I can say this with utmost confidence that MONOGATARI FANS SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO THIS SERIES.

You could even say that it's the point of this advertisement, so I don't think it's inappropriate to write about why you should read it in the place of a review for the advertisement.

That said, if you are a fan read more
