The (First Ever) DilKokoro Favorite Anime List! Part 2/6: The Significance of 64 The (First Ever) DilKokoro Favorite Anime List! Part 2/6: The Significance of 64

Hello again everyone, last time we had a pretty exciting 32 to kick off the list. There were some runaway favorites, and some of those favorites made some waves. Chances are most people aren’t reading anymore because of my taste for Fate/Apocrypha, but hey like I said this is a favorites list not a rating list.

I Need to Rant About That Guy I Need to Rant About That Guy

Listen. Even before this all kicked off, I always thought Vic Mignogna came off as a total jerk.

Return of Marathon Journal! April: Capital City Half Marathon Return of Marathon Journal! April: Capital City Half Marathon

Hello all! For those of you who are newer to my blog you might not know this, but I am an avid runner and I run in various running events for nonprofit organizations. The last time I updated the world on my endeavors, I admittedly was intimated by the amount of body-shaming I received after posting an update for my…

The (First Ever) DilKokoro Favorite Anime List! Part 1/6: The First 32 The (First Ever) DilKokoro Favorite Anime List! Part 1/6: The First 32

Everyone has had the conversation. The AniTAY Podcast asks new guests the question. Maybe you’ve had the question asked on a Discord server somewhere along the way. Maybe you have friends in real life who like to discuss this sort of thing and asked you. The question, as I’m sure everyone knows, is what is your…

The Experience That is Immune to Spoilers in The Promised Neverland The Experience That is Immune to Spoilers in The Promised Neverland

From the very beginning, I knew what I was getting into with The Promised Neverland. Try as I did to avoid spoilers, somehow even someone who is not involved in social media like myself had the first episode’s twist spoiled before watching the episode less than a week after it aired. Indeed, the crown on its thumbnail…

Alita: Battle Angel The AniTAY Review Alita: Battle Angel The AniTAY Review

Two of my favorite pastimes, anime and film, rarely meet in the form of productions. Sure, every forum or server I have ever been a part of inevitably makes comparisons between the two, but those wires typically remain uncrossed. Audiences received a little bit of a tease in 2017 with the prospect of a Ghost in the…

PSA: Target is running a buy 2, get 1 free sale on their video games, books and movies. This includes a fair amount of anime (including some new release Blu ray sets). Great deal for those of you who collect home media.

Dubs w/ Dil: SSSS.GRIDMAN Dubs w/ Dil: SSSS.GRIDMAN

First and foremost, I am happy to be back to writing these entries and I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read this dub writing series of mine. Hopefully with a new wave of dubs taking priority in the industry, I’ll be able to write not only more impressions on shows but also plenty more Dubs w/ Dil in 2019.…

"It's the Morning of December the 18th"- Half a Decade of Watching The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya "It's the Morning of December the 18th"- Half a Decade of Watching The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya

With the end of the year rapidly approaching, the holidays have blasted through like a freight train and 2019 will be here in a blink of an eye. Looking at my calendar, I couldn’t believe it was time for a tradition of mine already. On 18 December without fail every year since 2014, I have watched The Disappearance of…

Vidar Rising- a Discussion on my Favorite Characters in Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans Vidar Rising- a Discussion on my Favorite Characters in Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans

A considerable amount of time ago, I finally got around to watching the series that everyone was going ballistic over in Iron Blooded Orphans. My experiences in anime for Gundam were limited to an occasional episode of Gundam Wing here and there growing up and watching half of Unicorn last year before losing interest…

A Love Letter to Writers in Violet Evergarden  A Love Letter to Writers in Violet Evergarden 

There are a few anime I’ve watched that left me at such a loss for words that I decided that I would never write about them out of respect for the impact they had on me. It was almost like there was an innate thought that no matter how much I wrote, it wouldn’t do justice to the aforementioned impact. The big three…

Why I am Leaving AniTAY

Effective 2 September, I will no longer be writing for the site AniTAY. This comes as a result of an incident that was not a first time offense. During the evening of 1 September, one of our writers made a statement that didn’t settle well with me (the metaphor about “tying (your) own noose”), and I had very…

"Thank You, My Twilight"- FLCL Progressive is a Fresh, Modern Spin on the Classic Adventure "Thank You, My Twilight"- FLCL Progressive is a Fresh, Modern Spin on the Classic Adventure

Looking through my archives and document listing the series I have written about, it amazes me that I have yet to write about one of my all time favorite series, FLCL. The 2000 series gave an imaginative spin on puberty for a young man that was nothing short of an artistic piece or an absolute train-wreck, depending…

Owarimonogatari: Second Season Impressions Owarimonogatari: Second Season Impressions

As I was archiving old posts I’ve made for guest spots and now defunct publications, I came across a post that I was rather fond of. With permission from my old editor, I wanted to share a live reaction piece I wrote back when the second season of Owarimonogatari aired roughly this time last year. When I originally…

Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 Set For 2020 (Updated 27 Jul- Preview Added) Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 Set For 2020 (Updated 27 Jul- Preview Added)

It appears that in Japanese theaters, there has been a trailer floating the date of 2020 around for the epic series newest film. The Rebuild of Evangelion has been a divisive topic for anime fans, but we’ll see how it shapes out the same year Japan is to host the Olympics.

I Was (Mostly) Wrong About The Future Diary I Was (Mostly) Wrong About The Future Diary

Generally, anime is often filed into that category of “if it looks bad, just leave it be” since there are more productive things to do with free time such as isolating myself from the rest of society as I build Gundam models or go hiking in the woods. However, there is a rare bird that flies through the window that…
