I made a terrible mistake and watched the prologue first. Continue reading “Anime Taste Testing: Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury”
I liked what I saw of this… I think? Continue reading “Anime Taste Testing: Raven of the Inner Palace”
For a series that seemed to get a decent amount of hype, this first episode is exceptional only in its dullness. Continue reading “Anime Taste Testing: Reincarnated as a Sword”
So… has “villainess” become its own genre by this point?
I’d say I was disappointed, but that would imply I had high hopes to begin with. Continue reading “Anime Taste Testing: Shine On! Bakumatsu Bad Boys! and Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer”
The anime I was looking forward to the most this season based purely on the premise was weirdly disappointing. The one I had little enthusiasm for ended up surprising me in a good way. Continue reading “Anime Taste Testing: Isekai Ojisan and The Yakuza’s Guide to Babysitting”
Happy Fourth of July! I may not be an American, but I’m celebrating like all Americans most assuredly do – watching bad anime and telling people all about it. …That is how people celebrate around here, right? Continue reading “Anime Taste Testing: Yurei Deco and My Isekai Life”
Ah, Bastard!!. The perfect anime for horny teenagers desperately trying to be cool and horny adults desperately trying to be young. Continue reading “Anime Taste Testing: Bastard!!: Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy”
While most new anime kicking off during the summer season won’t start for another 1-2 weeks, RWBY: Ice Queendom delivered its first 3 episodes a bit earlier than initially scheduled. And it’s… well, not very good, unfortunately. Continue reading “Anime Taste Testing: RWBY – Ice Queendom”
Actually, two important questions. Full disclosure: this doesn’t have anything to do with a blogging project (although I may blog about it at some point way in the future), but I figure if anyone would want to try and answer this, it’d be you awesome readers.
So, first question: When I say Kyoto, you say _____? I’m ideally looking for one-word cultural answers – stereotypes, if you will, about Kyoto, whether or not these things are actually accurate. For example, “shrines,” “temples,” “geisha,” etc.
And the second question, whether you’ve visited these places personally or simply heard about them before and are dying to visit yourself someday, is this: Not including the ‘golden route’ of really major sight-seeing cities such as Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, and Hiroshima, what are some of the most underrated places you know of in Japan? I’m not looking for cities or towns here so much as specific tourism spots – places that are just a bit more off the beaten path.
Thank you in advance for any thoughts you may have! I look forward to reading them. ❤
