Feature a Character You Absolutely Hate (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 28)

When I was a kid, I used to think that Darien Shields (AKA Tuxedo Mask) from Sailor Moon was the perfect boyfriend, and I think this was merely due to the influence of his position as Serena's right-hand man.

Feature an Underrated Character (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 26)

My sons. https://youtu.be/vJ0VvTY2Lk0?t=66 That's honestly all … Continue reading Feature the Best Character with the Best Laugh (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 24)

Why aren’t we talking about Mo Dao Zu Shi? (A take on 魔道祖师, or “Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation”)

People aren't talking nearly enough about Mo Dao Zu Shi (魔道祖师, AKA "Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation"). I saw pretty art on Twitter and went hunting, only to find this GORGEOUS work that had me first reading 75 chapters of the manga before marathon watching a full season of donghua (Chinese animation) in one day. One … Continue reading Why aren’t we talking about Mo Dao Zu Shi? (A take on 魔道祖师, or “Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation”)
