The Best Comedy Anime of All Time
Mobile Suit Gundam’s creator, Yoshiyuki Tomino, is one of the most influential directors of all time.

How Music in Slice of Life can transform「calming」into「relaxing」
Music affects our viewer experience, often much more than we end up realizing. When reading media reviews, especially ones concerning anime, I often see a lack of focus on the sound section. Now, of course I definitely think that part of this is on the fault of the anime industry, due to many series having … Continue reading How Music in Slice of Life can transform「calming」into「relaxing」
The Relaxing World of Tanaka-Kun is Always Listless
It’s hard to see exactly why slice of life, a genre that is merely a series of realistic events without a significant “plot”, seems to be appealing to so many. Anime viewers, including myself, spend countless hours watching japanese highschool girls going camping, playing in a school band, or running cafes in a pseudo-french, rabbit … Continue reading The Relaxing World of Tanaka-Kun is Always Listless
How to Drastically Improve Your Show in Season 2 (feat. Gotoubun no Hanayome)
Season 1 of Go Toubun no Hanayome was one of the worst things I’ve seen in my life.

A Good Isekai Show?? (What Makes Shows Interesting)
Many seem to dismiss isekai shows whenever they see one on the seasonal list. It’s no different with me as well. There have been too many isekai shows that I dropped almost immediately or didn’t even attempt because, simply, it was an isekai. As I kept watching these shows and ended up not enjoying them, … Continue reading A Good Isekai Show?? (What Makes Shows Interesting)
Flurry of Isekai Shows this Season
Last summer, out of complete boredom, I took time to read basically most of the isekai manga out there. There were some good ones, Slime or Youjo Senki to name a few, but a lot of horrible ones as well. And to my surprise, this season featured a flurry of isekai shows, all from manga … Continue reading Flurry of Isekai Shows this Season
Yuru Camp△ S2 is Filled with Relaxing!
I got to finally watch the first couple episodes of Yuru Camp season two and I found myself more or else enjoying it as much as its first season. As most who watched this show knows, this show relies on some fundamental slice of life elements: comedy, relaxing atmosphere, and cuteness. In its first season, … Continue reading Yuru Camp△ S2 is Filled with Relaxing!
Mob Psycho’s Perfect Recap Episode
Recap episodes have a pretty bad reputation around them. Usually, it makes sense why they do. Most studios have recap episodes to take a week break to catch back up to the animation schedule again. They use previously aired episodes, stitching together different scenes, to make some product to hold on to the viewers in … Continue reading Mob Psycho’s Perfect Recap Episode
