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…

The Abstract Beauty of Fate/EXTRA: Last Encore Gives a Breathtaking Take on a Well Worn Franchise The Abstract Beauty of Fate/EXTRA: Last Encore Gives a Breathtaking Take on a Well Worn Franchise

When there is news of a franchise being turned over to new hands, it can naturally create a bit of an unease among fans. Unless someone is really yearning to see adaptations of source materials under new direction, generally fans will voice frustration/fear/protest to changes like all humans naturally do. In some…

Getting Deep- Marathon Update- 2 Weeks to Go Getting Deep- Marathon Update- 2 Weeks to Go

It is remarkable that there are only enough runs left that you can count them on one hand. Today I am resting, and tomorrow I have five miles to go. As a matter of fact, there are only five milers left to do with exception of Sunday, which is nine miles. I’m going super rogue on the schedule, but this whole training…

Home Stretch- Marathon Update- 3 Weeks to Go Home Stretch- Marathon Update- 3 Weeks to Go

Hey everyone! It has been a great past week for training. I managed to put up sixteen miles in four days despite having to take an emergency rest day in the middle there. I rebounded quickly too because on Sunday I hit my long-run finale with 18.5 miles. I feel great and ready for the event. My schedule has me cutting…

An Unbiased Revisit of the Evangelion Franchise An Unbiased Revisit of the Evangelion Franchise

There is an unwritten rule in most anime circles that should never be broken: Never start a conversation about Evangelion. The simple mention of the name creates an effect that can (and will) ruin relationships, turn people away from anime, and ultimately just pollute the air with a toxicity that is incredibly…

Sorry I missed a week, I’ve been busy training!

Dubs w/ Dil: Hand Shakers Dubs w/ Dil: Hand Shakers

Hey guys, I decided to do a Dubs w/ Dil video for once. I assure you there isn’t a RickRoll or anything, just poorly edited (ha ha get it). Anyways let me know what you guys think.
