Review – Kaguya-sama: Love Is War

Spring 2020 has been a roller-coaster ride for the anime community. With the coronavirus pandemic forcing the entire industry to rethink their plans, a lot of the anticipated titles have been moved off either later this year or the next.

Classroom of the Elite induces depressing “battle royale-esque” story

The battle royale trope has been a staple in writing stories for anime. It usually starts with a clueless protagonist being forced into a game of carnage for survival.

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. Because of this desire, we join groups, movements, filled with people who believe in the same things as we do. But it’s not all black and white as we would like to believe.
