The other day I was driving through my (usually) quiet town when I came across a Black Lives Matter protest on the side of the road. Despite the heat and the threat of COVID-19, a group of young people – most of them adorning masks – were shouting “BLACK LIVES MATTER!” and holding up signs … Continue reading BLM Round Table with Black Creators from Saturday AM
I love rodents. While many people find them disconcerting or even disgusting, I think they are adorable, at least most of the time. I have a very strong connection to them; they’d be my Patronus if I had one. This is partially why Raichu is my favorite Pokemon. It’s also because Electric is my favorite … Continue reading Are Electric Rodent Pokemon Actually Rodents?
Another month, another nonexistent blog post. I apologize that I have been so inactive on here recently. The main reason, besides the insane state of the world right now, is that I moved in to my own place with my fiance recently! I have been so focused on the move that everything else fell to … Continue reading Creative Writing Section Now Up!
Hey everyone~ I apologize that my writing has been so sparse. Things have been... crazy to say the least, considering what is going on in the world. I'm working on some stuff for the blog, but it may take a while. So I figured I'd post an old review on here to break up the … Continue reading Transparent Light Blue – A Yuri Manga I Actually Didn’t Like
Diversity and representation have always been very important to me. I grew up (and still live) in northern New Jersey, right outside of New York City. It’s an extremely diverse area with people of all different ethnic and religious backgrounds. Growing up, my schools always held cultural festivals, and I had many friends that were … Continue reading Saturday AM: Manga for a Multicultural World
Hi everyone~ In my first post of the year, I talked a little about my prospective plans for this blog in 2020. I even asked the audience some questions about what they'd like to see. But the post was really long-winded, and my questions probably got lost among the barrage of words. So, I decided … Continue reading Quick Poll: Please Take It To Help Out My Blog 🙂
Happy New Year, everyone! Another year has come to a close, so it's time for a reflective post about my blog. I have said it before, and I will say it again. Life is weird. For me, 2017 was the year of freelance writing, 2018 was the year of professional writing, and 2019... took a … Continue reading A Long Post Featuring Me Rambling About 2019, Anime, And Music – A Yearly Roundup(?)
Anime isn't just about beautiful artwork: it's full of life lessons, relatable characters, and helpful advice. The number of motivational anime moments is immeasurable, so it's impossible to document them all. However, the guys running QuoteTheAnime have done a great job of cataloging many of them. If you aren't familiar, QuoteTheAnime is a blog that … Continue reading 8 Anime Quotes That Speak To Me (Via QuoteTheAnime)
Just in time for Halloween, I watched a horror movie that's not quite like anything I've ever seen before. The film is Violence Voyager, an animated Japanese film directed by Ujicha. And oh boy. Where do I even begin? I'll start out by saying... Violence Voyager was weird. Downright bizarre. But that's okay because I like … Continue reading Japanese Horror Film Violence Voyager Is Really Out There: A Reflection
Hello everyone~ I've decided to participate in this year's Animanga Festival! If you aren't aware, the Animanga Festival is an event hosted and created by Auri and Nairne at Manga Toritsukareru Koto. "Simply put, it is a month-long festivity that includes aggressive writing prompts, intriguing competitions, whacky activities, remarkable talent, and all-round fun!" For my incredibly late post, I'm … Continue reading A Place I’d Like To Visit From Manga Or Anime (The Animanga Festival)
