Manga Spotlight: Dandadan (Ongoing)

Another Shounen Jump Hit

As I got older, I began to consider Shounen Jump, the “kiddie pool” of anime hits. This was in part due to many of the anime I grew up with, (Naruto, Bleach, Dragonball Z) all seeming more heavily flawed story-wise in their later years. These things happen. Shounen Jump is popular for many reasons but even I cannot deny it, if you’re on SJ lineup, you’re probably a hit! This brings us to the topic of the post, the weird, the strange, and the ballsy; Dandadan! This is a story of two unlikely students being unlikely heroes, while possibly being high off hallucinogenics.

“Please Dont Bully Me, Nagatoro!” (Ongoing)

Beauty and the Dweeb

So, you remember in school when the popular girl would pick on you because she secretly liked you? I know, me neither, that whole thing is a myth! The only way to get that girl’s attention was to do a Powerline-Stand-Out performance, and maybe she will learn your name… Did I just make a Goofy Movie reference? Well, let’s stay on topic now, it’s time to discuss the “Beauty and the Dweeb” fantasy that manga loves to push out.

First off, I’m let’s start off with the more popular one, the teasing- or rather bullying queen herself: Nagatoro. Now everyone loves Nagatoro for some odd reason, but she has cemented herself as an anime staple. Not everyone will know who she is, but everyone has seen her before. I say all this because, for the most part, I don’t really care for Nagatoro.

*Cue gasps*

Now hear me out…

(SPOILERS INCLUDED!)

Jobless Reincarnation (Mushoku Tensei) Episodes 1-3

THe Isekai The Reforms

So let’s take a reprieve from the depraved and talk about a series that holds a special place to my often tattered heart. I present to you all, Jobless Reincarnation, also known as Mushoku Tensei. To me, this story has something special for every disillusioned or depressed person out there. It touches on new beginnings and overcoming past traumas. This story helped me through a tough time in my life and I’m glad that the author finally received an anime adaptation. So what happens when a NEET is hit by truck and presumed dead? You guessed it, it’s a another Isekai folks!

Redo Of Healer (Kaifuku Jutsushi no Yarinaoshi) Episode 2

Well… Um….That was Intense

I mean, I gave it such a terrible review…

I mean… What I just saw…. I mean…..Damn.

Forgive me for my lack of words, but I just finished watching episode 2 of Redo A Healer. I was in the middle of writing a review for Jobless Reincarnation but the moment this episode started going, I was glued to the screen. I have to say, nearly everything I complained about in the first episode was addressed here. This should have been how the series started. Now that the anime has shown just what kind of show we’re dealing with. Let’s begin! Oh before that, this episode and review speaks on very atrocious acts, so be forewarned.

Redo Of Healer (Kaifuku Jutsushi no Yarinaoshi) Episode 1

Already hoping for a Redo

Well, I didn’t expect the best first impression, but gee-golly I was sure expecting something more. Let me prefix this by saying, I had a hard time writing about this first episode of Redo a Healer. I was first confused by the underwhelming animation, thinking perhaps my stream was buffering or something. Then I was taken back by how the anime chose to set up it’s first episode. By not embellishing in the protagonist’s mistreatment, it loses a good amount of investment from the viewers. In the manga it did the same somewhat, but when you have the freedom of animation, use it to your advantage!

Back for the Winter Season!

Greetings everyone! I must say 2020 was a terrible year for me but I’m sure you’ve heard this story many times from many others. With the blessing of surviving thus far, I’m more inclined to get back to what I enjoy doing: Watching and talking/writing about anime. I noticed that during my time of absence, my page has been slowly growing despite my lack of content. I aim to return to form and grow my page even further. I wont bore you with my site goals but I will give you a heads up on what I will writing about this Winter season. Also you can expect manga and breakdowns in between these posts! Thank you for support thus far, let’s continue!

The Unexplored Complexity of Peter Grill’s Betrayals

No sympathy for the unfaithful

I find the behavior of Peter interesting because it’s possible that the comedy anime is going for a deep ending. For those unaware, PETER GRILL AND THE PHILOSOPHER’S TIME is anime/manga that follows the worlds strongest man whom is being chased by a slew of very determined women, to get his seed. In his first interaction with two lovely ogres, they constantly pressure him for his seed in order to birth the strongest ogre. He finally gives in to their advances, beginning his descent into darkness.

God Of Highschool: Episode 4 – 5

Well, despite my less-than-stellar first impressions of  GOH in my previous post, I’ve committed myself to follow the first season. It’s become apparent that the pacing will not improve from an adaption point of view. For those who have not read the manwha, please let me know if it feels rushed to you. Despite my gripes, episode four managed to shed a bit of character development and emotional investment. Our true main protagonist, Daewi, spared very little expense in displaying his conflicted situation. Continue reading “God Of Highschool: Episode 4 – 5”

Quick Update – Following A Few Anime Series

SO I was wondering about what would be a good plan for steady relevant content. I personally enjoy reading/listening to others’ take on episodes of my favorite anime, and I would rather write what I would like to read. So I’ve decided that it would be more of a fit for me to choose three anime this season to follow.

The first will be God of high school, the second will be Re: Zero S2, of course. The third is still a work in progress. I’m thinking either Maou Gakuin or Deca Dense, something that’s new. So expect ReZero and GOH posts coming up this week, and you’ll see which anime I choose very soon. Continue reading “Quick Update – Following A Few Anime Series”

Monster Girl Doctor : Episodes 1-3 (Ongoing Anime)

Monster Monosume, But With Doctors

Oh boy, I guess this would have happened eventually on here. So, allow me get this out of the way first, this is a genius anime concept covered by dirt and mud. As harsh as that may sound, I’ve read this before and enjoyed the premise then. It was still an ecchi(perverted) manga but it added a few more nuggets that were left out of the anime when going over the anatomy of each monster girl. So, let’s take a look into the adventures of Dr.Glenn, the human and Dr.Saphentite, lamia.
