Evangelion 3.0+1.01 Anime Review

I have, at long last, watched the (to date) final Evangelion film, Evangelion 3.0+1.01: Thrice Upon A Time. I have some considerable thoughts about this – and I’d like to talk about them with spoilers, so the entirety of my review will be below the cut.

My Hero Academia Season 5: Anime Review

From the discussions I’ve seen online as the season went on, My Hero Academia Season 5 is probably the most divisive season of the show thus far, between those who have been reading the manga, and those who have been watching the show, and a lot of that comes down to the decisions made around the final arc of the season, the My Villain Academia arc.

Editorial: Pokemon Card Bubble

A Week Of Listening

This week I’m stepping away from my Let’s Play, my Reviews, and my Blog Posts to encourage you to likewise step away from the normal voices you listen to (which are statistically likely to be predominantly White). Instead, I’d like you to take this moment to actively seek voices of people of color, of Black people, on YouTube, on Twitch, in the podcasts you listen to, the books you read, the roleplaying games you play.

Kumoricon 2019 Mascot and Dates

Attending Kumoricon 2019!

This weekend I am going to be attending Kumoricon 2019, so I’m going to be a little laid back on the Let’s Plays for this weekend, both in terms of streaming and in terms of video uploading. So I’m doing a blog post today with something of the panels that I have of interest. If you’re going and there’s a panel you’re interested in checking out, or if you’re reading this after the convention and there’s a panel you really liked, go ahead and post that in the comments! Panel descriptions can be found in the Kumoricon Program book, at the events page.
