Samurai Champloo: A 2000s Bebop

So earlier today I finally finished Samurai Champloo, and if I’m being honest, it’s Cowboy Bebop with slightly cooler male protagonists and a new paintjob. Everything I said about Bebop pretty much applies to Champloo. Solid voice acting, great music, acceptable use of black culture, and interesting characters. However, just like Bebop, Champloo is aboutContinue reading “Samurai Champloo: A 2000s Bebop”

God Of Highschool Review (SPOILER FREE)

I just finished the first season of God Of Highschool and I am shook. The first couple of episodes left me confused from the lack of worldbuilding, which made a few of the shounen trope moments feel off. I actually considered turning it off at one point, but I’m very glad I didn’t. While itContinue reading “God Of Highschool Review (SPOILER FREE)”

Cowboy Bebop: The Jewel of It’s Time

I finally watched Cowboy Bebop So, I’ve been a weeb since I first saw Dragonball Z and Sailor Moon on Cartoon Network back in grade school. I’m pretty sure I was in first grade. I remember seeing the very first episode and just being in awe. No more Power Rangers or Star Trek for me,Continue reading “Cowboy Bebop: The Jewel of It’s Time”

Black Star & Death The Kid: A Real Rivalry

When you think of rivalry in anime, who comes to mind first? Goku and Vegeta? Naruto and Sasuke? Maybe Deku and Bakugo? These are probably the most popular rivalries, but something about them never seemed quite right. Personally, Goku and Vegeta’s rivalry didn’t become interesting to me until Dragon Ball Super when they starting actingContinue reading “Black Star & Death The Kid: A Real Rivalry”

Strawberry Smirk’s Best Anime Moms

They’re few and far between but I want to share my favorite mothers in anime, my only rules are that I can only pick one Mom per anime, cause otherwise all the answers would be from MHA, and they have to be alive. I’ll probably do a best dead moms in the future though sinceContinue reading “Strawberry Smirk’s Best Anime Moms”

Erased, or Panic Attack: The Anime

So, it’s almost 4 a.m and I just finished binge watching Erased. Why? Because Erased might be the first anime I absolutely had to finish in one go. The fear, the suspense, there’s no way I’d have gotten any sleep if I’d stopped before it was over. As usual, I’ll try to keep the spoilersContinue reading “Erased, or Panic Attack: The Anime”

3 Things I’d Change in DBZ/Super

I love the Dragonball franchise. In fact, I love it more than the Naruto series. Simply for the fact that, despite it’s ridiculous transformation from a show about a young boy going on adventures to aliens fighting gods for the sake of the multiverse, it has a somewhat more kept together lore. There are farContinue reading “3 Things I’d Change in DBZ/Super”

My 5 Favorite Anime Villains

Whose your favorite anime villain? What, to you, constitutes a villain? Do they have to be the big bad, a powerful adversary? I gave it a lot of thought, for me, villains have to have truly evil motivations, and in no way redeemable. So a lot of popular badasses like Madara Uchiha for example, didn’tContinue reading “My 5 Favorite Anime Villains”

Madoka Magica: Emo Sailor Moon?

So, I spent the last few days watching Madoka Magica, and, I honestly still don’t really know how I feel about it. Maybe it’s because one of my first anime was Sailor Moon, but this dark take on the magical girl concept kinda made me uncomfortable. In the beginning I was all in. Heroes whoContinue reading “Madoka Magica: Emo Sailor Moon?”

Fire Force S1: My Thoughts (SPOILER FREE)

So, when I first heard about Fire Force, I didn’t hear good things. Fanservice, a weird anime that tried to blend MHA with firefighters, etc. But after finishing the atrocity that was Akame Ga Kill yesterday, I figured I’d give it a chance. To every person that insulted this anime, you are out of yourContinue reading “Fire Force S1: My Thoughts (SPOILER FREE)”
