So…as I was exploring the interwebs this fine Thanksgiving Day (Thanksgiving for those of us in America, anyways), I remembered that I had a blog…details, my first blog entry in many months, and my early New Year’s Resolution behind the cut!

All-Female Round Robin Returns: The “Strong Women” Stereotype in Anime

•August 16, 2008 • 9 Comments

Ok, so I’ll admit that it feels a bit presumptuous to post one of these big essay-type things for this Round-Robin topic after I’ve done such a half-ass job of getting caught up after I was gone for a week. I can offer you no excuses, except that life just ate me – so many things and responsibilities just crashed down on my head this past week-and-a-half, that I’ve barely had time to accomplish all the things I need to in real-life; much less in the blogosphere. I know I’ve probably lost any readers that I once had, but I’m posting this anyway…wishful thinking, perhaps?

Anyway, this Round Robin topic is about Strong Women in Anime: the Stereotypes and the Roles they Play. Please read (and maybe even comment, if you feel like it! *gasp*) – this topic continues behind the cut…

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: Episode 3 (Kind of…)

•August 9, 2008 • 1 Comment


Ok, instead of a typical review on Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, I’d like to talk a bit about the role/presentation of otaku in this anime as compared to the real world. This was a theme that was focused on very much in Episode 3 (and received mixed reviews), so I would like to throw my two cents into the blogosphere too – why not? ;)

Natsume Yuujin-Chou: Episode 2

Wow – I am SO sorry for the delay on this! Wouldn’t you know, as soon as I apologize in a post and say I’m gonna hop right on the late reviews, the internet crashes – hard! I mean, the system was DOWN, yo! Anyway, the exceedingly late review of Natsume Yuujin-Chou: Episode 2 is behind the cut…finally!

Seperating the Men from the Dogs

•July 30, 2008 • Leave a Comment

WARNING: this picture has absolutely nothing to do with the post. I just love Hellsing.

That being said, it’s that time of the anime season where bloggers decide what they’re going to continue blogging and what they’re going to drop – time to seperate the men from the dogs! For more information on the chosen ones, keep on reading beyond the cut.
