No matter whatever world we are presented with – be it the real or the fiction, there is always that one end goal put forward: peace. This concept varies on the individual and we all want a little bit of peace. Every person would go to any length they deem necessary to find “peace,” whatever it is.

The high school setting has been a staple for anime culture with almost majority of shows using it and then adding in a couple of other fictional elements such as horror, magic and the like. Usually the stories of these shows revolve around an interesting set of students that ultimately contribute to what makes the show entertaining. But rarely has it been that teachers are given the spotlight. Continue reading “Interviews with Monster Girls: a love letter to teachers”

Review – Interviews with Monster Girls

There has been a growing popularity for shows that portray a cast of women oddities such as monsters, animals and the like. Usually these anime would be set in the harem-genre where a normal, human male main character is surrounded by women with special physical attributes.

The best thing about being behind and not following seasonal anime religiously is that you can freely watch new shows from the previous months. One of these shows that I wanted to get down and watch was Interviews with Monster Girls.

Darling in the FRANXX and how its been great despite the uproar from fans

After drawing flak from the vast corners of the community, Darling in the FRANXX has received so much criticism for its story and characters. It became such a hot topic to the point of alleged reports involving fans sending threats to members of the production for creating a point in this show’s story in which many will never accept.

Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii is as straight a rom-com can get

The pacing from light-hearted humor transitioning to the eventual romantic development between characters is just something that gets me excited whenever I watch a new show. This spring season is no different and one of those shows might be Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii. Continue reading “Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii is as straight a rom-com can get”

Mahou Shoujo Site: a not-so-lucky day for my stomach

The magical girl genre is something that I never found interest in. Mainly due to the fact that a bunch of young girls battling in a war versus evil with the power of friendship is not exactly my cup of tea. However, over the course of recent years, there has been a slight shift to this genre and that is the deconstruction trend gaining more popularity among viewers. Mahou Shoujo Site is no different.
