I talk about light novels from all across the board! Sometimes I do one post on many volumes, or go volume-by-volume for a whole series. It all depends on the work itself.
I also read manga. Reviews of manga are usually split into first impressions and full reviews, but only for ones I’ve started recently. I’ll have those One Piece and MHA reviews up someday!
- Avatar: The Last Airbender Full Series Review (Yes, this was my first time watching the show)My whole life, I’ve lived with the baseless impression that Western culture- specifically that of the United States- looks upon Japanese culture with disdain. Part of this is from the factual translation and- in some cases- censorship issues that plagued Japanese media when it first came overseas (for example, the One Piece dub that shallContinue reading “Avatar: The Last Airbender Full Series Review (Yes, this was my first time watching the show)”
- The Extraordinary, the Ordinary, and SOAP! Volume 1 and Outer Ragna Volume 2 ReviewsI’ve stated my disdain toward slice-of-life isekai in my reviews of Ascendance of a Bookworm, Mushoku Tensei, Buck Naked in Another World and Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear.

But conversely, Welcome to the Space Show– today’s topic- ended up being an E.T. ripoff with just the right amount of whimsy to becomeContinue reading “Welcome to the Space Show Movie Review”
- Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Full Series ReviewThis was honestly a very tough review to write. I got into Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (published in English by Viz) months before the anime- that freaking anime- aired. At that time, it had a pretty niche fanbase, like any anime-less manga would in the West. But my whole perspective of it changed whenContinue reading “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Full Series Review”
- The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel Full Game ReviewDespite my love for JRPGs, story is ironically the one aspect of videogames that I care the least about. And yet, because of how much I enjoyed Ys VIII, I wanted to try another series by the same team, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel. It is a single, mammoth, epic JRPG, spanningContinue reading “The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel Full Game Review”
