WDW 2019 Highlights

Walt Disney World is my favorite place in the world. I’ve been going there with my family every year since 2013, and I’m still not tired of it. By this point, I’m pretty darn confident in knowing what’s what in the World. So, I figured that I’d have an annual blog series- off-schedule from theContinue reading “WDW 2019 Highlights”

Overlord VS TenSura VS So I’m a Spider, So What?

Prior to starting this blog, I had already written three separate reviews for Overlord, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, and So I’m a Spider, So What?, all of which are published in English by Yen Press. However, I realized that my feelings regarding all three of these are very similar. So, inContinue reading “Overlord VS TenSura VS So I’m a Spider, So What?”

There Was No Secret Evil-Fighting Organization (srsly?!), So I Made One Myself! Volume 1 Review

There are SO MANY isekais out there, that it can become a reflex to assume that every new light novel is automatically an isekai. I read through the first chapter of There Was No Secret Evil-Fighting Organization (srsly?!), So I Made One Myself!, published in English by J-Novel Club, constantly asking, “So when does thisContinue reading “There Was No Secret Evil-Fighting Organization (srsly?!), So I Made One Myself! Volume 1 Review”

Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle First Impressions (Volumes 1-5)

In this turbulent age of “gotta-go-fast-gotta-go-fast-gotta-go-faster-faster-faster-faster-faster-Sonic–X“, we all appreciate an opportunity to just lay down, cozy in bed, and sleep. The main character of Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle, published in English by Viz, clearly appreciates it, and not even being a hostage of the Demon King will stop her from accumulating a worldContinue reading “Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle First Impressions (Volumes 1-5)”

Torture Princess: Fremd Torturchen Volume 2 Review

Last time on Torture Princess: Fremd Torturchen, Kaito Sena is strangled to death by his father and summoned to another world in the body of a golem. He is forced to serve Elisabeth Le Fanu, a young girl who has killed a LOT of people, and must hunt thirteen powerful demons as punishment. After aContinue reading “Torture Princess: Fremd Torturchen Volume 2 Review”

Archenemies Review

Last time, on Renegades, Nova Artino (a.k.a. Nightmare) squanders a wonderful opportunity to kill Hugh Everhart, the most powerful Renegade in the world, because she’s your typical “Mary-Sue-can’t-kill-even-if-it’s-the-guy-I-hate-more-than-anyone” YA protagonist. She also has a run in with some tokusatsu guy who calls himself the Sentinel. Incidentally, she literally meets him on the street in hisContinue reading “Archenemies Review”

Sexiled Volume 1 Review

Looking back on human history, I’d say that women’s rights have made some good headway over the years. Now that it’s the 21st Century, their universe is no longer the diameter of the kitchen! But as we close in on the second decade of this century, feminism has once again become a very controversial topic,Continue reading “Sexiled Volume 1 Review”

Dragon Quest XI S First Impressions

JRPGs are my favorite genre of videogames by far, even though a lot of them are time sinks and take a long time to really strut their stuff. I’ve been meaning to get into the Dragon Quest games for a while, and I finally got that chance with Dragon Quest XI S for Nintendo Switch.Continue reading “Dragon Quest XI S First Impressions”

Durarara!! Full Series Review

In a world full of isekai stuff, one might forget that THIS WORLD EXISTS TOO. That’s when we turn back to the start of the 21st Century, before the isekai boom. Back in the good ol’ days, we didn’t have “i-SUCK-ais”, we had QUALITY like that there Monogatari series, or better yet, Durarara!!, finally publishedContinue reading “Durarara!! Full Series Review”

The Hero is Overpowered But Overly Cautious Volume 1 Review

Isekai has fallen into a rut of tropes lately, so naturally the way to make isekai great is to subvert the crap out of those tropes. For example, Ascendance of a Bookworm, and Otherside Picnic. However, one relatively recent isekai, The Hero is Overpowered But Overly Cautious (short version, Cautious Hero), conforms to isekai tropesContinue reading “The Hero is Overpowered But Overly Cautious Volume 1 Review”
