This post is about Hajime no Ippo, it really is. Mostly.

This is going to be a really long post. So, here’s an executive summary for you: Hajime no Ippo is one of the best animes I’ve ever seen. Now look at the pretty pictures and then go watch Hajime no Ippo. Oh yeah, also, you should watch Haikyuu! I’ve been watching anime since 2004. I’ve…

When Stars Align in Marvel Universe

I was fifteen when the first X-Men movie came out. I think it’s no wonder that Wolverine has had a special place in my heart ever since. I was young and impressionable, and Wolverine was well… I was fifteen. Two days ago, before I’ve watched Logan, I still loved Wolverine. I might not be fifteen…

Raw Liver & Melted Vanilla Ice Cream

The decision to delve once again into the American Gods was only a matter of proper incentive. The premiere of the TV show seemed like a good one, and, boy, were my reading buddy and me right about rereading this one. I’m not sure who’d read American Gods in 2013, but I’m pretty sure it…

You Perv, You!

Allow me to explain.” Jesse Bering: Perv – The Sexual Deviant in All of Us What is Jesse Bering’s Perv about? To put it plainly, the Perv explores the normalcy of what we perceive as abnormal in sexual behaviour…

GotG Vol. 2 – or let’s talk about plot, baby

Three things that saved GotG Vol. 2 from total bust: The characters and their relationships – namely, the first movie; The Chain by Fleetwood Mac; Nebula and Yondu. I also have to give them credit for avoiding a giant hole in the sky and opting for a subterranean climax. Twice as many things due to…

So, what is wrong with Ghost in the Shell…

….aside from all the painfully obvious things such as: Not enough ghost, a lot of shell; Two-dimensional characters; Explaining of things that are obvious to a 2-year old; Non-existent villain; 1995 view of the future Pathetic attempt at exploring the discorporation of consciousness? All those things fade in the wake of the fact that 21st…

5 Freak-out Films

Movies, books, TV shows… Even those which seem as nothing more than mindless entertainment, if positioned properly within a life-cycle, can leave an indelible mark. Maybe it is not the dictionary definition of experience (every language should have a word equivalent to vicarious, btw), but it is nonetheless something you’ve been through. As with any…

Lock, Key – no smoking barrels

I find myself lost for nice words (jaded?). I mean, I really enjoyed Lock and Key, and here I am struggling to write down the reasons I liked it, with a prepared list of things that were poorly executed in the book. The positive aspects, which made me read the book in three days and…

How to Read the Bedwyn Saga

If I’ve ever wondered if there is such a thing as too much historical romance (I didn’t) I know the answer. There is. Really. I’ve read six and a half Bedwyn Saga books in a span of one month. It’s really difficult to say at which point I started feeling slightly mad. If, at any…

Give Me My Binary Opposition

I’m really sick of being strong. Of enduring. Of keeping it real. Of gritting my teeth and pushing forward with a vengeance. I need a fucking break. Give me it. I need some leeway. I just need a minute or two where I can let go, be dependant, a pathetic, malleable jellybean. Of course I’m…

A Feeling to Remember

Have you ever sat by the river, watching the endless flow of placid water, listening to the rustle of leaves on the summer breeze? Have you ever sat in silence feeling the warmth of sun rays filtered through the branches on your face? Have you ever closed your eyes to better hear that moment of serenity?…

The First Cheap Thrill of 2017

During my seven-day tryst with flu, I have come to recognize there are some, albeit few, benefits to being unable to exercise any type of exertion. Putting aside that you might have to do some actual work while burning up at mild 38.5 degrees Celsius, you don’t (really) need your mental faculties to be at…
