“Love me cancerously… She moves through moonbeams slowly. She knows just how to hold me.” — CMV/AMV Saturday (04/10/21)

Svattii and her girlfriend Mishkali are professional cosplayers (and, in Svattii's case, a photographer as well) with oodles of talent and abundant creativity. They've done TONS of awesome work in various anime fandoms, but something about this cosplay music video set to Love Me Dead by Ludo is just on a whole other level! As … Continue reading “Love me cancerously… She moves through moonbeams slowly. She knows just how to hold me.” — CMV/AMV Saturday (04/10/21)

“That Time I Learned that Co-Washing with a High-Moisture Shampoo will Make Me Lose My Hair,” a Shoujo’s Tale & Other Updates

Like any good light novel or any good Shoujo (me, not the anime genre), I begin with a rambling title and an adventure in capitalization. If you recall from this post, I began a Curly Girl Method Odyssey some weeks ago, and I have to say that---now on the other side of it having messed … Continue reading “That Time I Learned that Co-Washing with a High-Moisture Shampoo will Make Me Lose My Hair,” a Shoujo’s Tale & Other Updates

“Just a little more, Sano. It’s gonna be okay.” – an excerpt of “1863, December”

Full fic here. 1864, November In the end, they don’t do anything. Further integration of Itou’s forces into the Shinsengumi ranks continues to challenge, and Sannan’s change has necessitated the move to Nishi Hongan-Ji. The troops as a collective are rowdier than ever---a group grown too large for its current outfit, members flitting between one faction-inspired pissing … Continue reading “Just a little more, Sano. It’s gonna be okay.” – an excerpt of “1863, December”

What are the ends and means of honor? — A Case for “Hakuoki Reimeiroku”

Hello! If you're new here, welcome! If not, you may already know all this, but I'm a lover of reverse harem romance. I mean, honestly, what's not to love? Poke fun if you want, but I'm aware of my own proclivities. (And handsome men? I mean... bonus!) But this isn't a post about reverse harem … Continue reading What are the ends and means of honor? — A Case for “Hakuoki Reimeiroku”

Still Drawing Some Things ™, Getting that Good Internet ™ and Restarting the 31 Day Anime Challenge

As stated on Twitter, I stopped doing the 31 Day Anime Challenge because my back decided it was 2019 instead of 2021; sitting at the desk to type became ill-advised. I'm better than I was, even if I'm not 100%, so I will be resuming the challenge on Sunday the 28th should all the stars … Continue reading Still Drawing Some Things ™, Getting that Good Internet ™ and Restarting the 31 Day Anime Challenge

Anime I Wish Had Another Season — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 13)

There are several anime I wish had another season, chief among them both "Given" and "Skip Beat." While we have some hope of more "Given" media to come, "Skip Beat" is just about guaranteed to be over, even though the finale hinted at a season 2 way back in 2008. The manga is still running … Continue reading Anime I Wish Had Another Season — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 13)

Character You Wish Never Existed — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 12)

A good character or character addition can make or break a program. This is especially true when the character is given a major role. However, not every character has to a make-or-break character to be unnecessary or annoying. Today, I'm selecting a character I find annoying and unnecessary. Even years later, I'm still hung up … Continue reading Character You Wish Never Existed — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 12)

Most Traumatizing Anime Scene — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 11)

This post will have two answers. Firstly, going back to day ONE with this prompt, the most traumatizing anime scene to which I've ever been exposed has to be the club scene from the first episode of Devilman Crybaby. I didn't make it all the way through. In fact, I noped out quite early. Still, … Continue reading Most Traumatizing Anime Scene — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 11)

Bored Beyond Reason—Adventures in Egg-Based Hair Masking

The effort herein described is just as the title suggests. Because I am bored beyond reason and trying not to fall into spiraling existential and practical dread, I’ve been paying too much attention to my own hair for someone who never leaves her house. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I have, in fact, started trying to follow the Curly … Continue reading Bored Beyond Reason—Adventures in Egg-Based Hair Masking

Anime Character I Would Like to Meet — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 10)

There are all sorts of anime husbandos, right? And if that's not where your mind went first, no worries, but mine sure did, because most of my favorite characters also happen to be husbandos. However, those two qualifiers are not necessarily mutually inclusive. I would, however---purely by coincidence---like to meet a handsome anime man, not … Continue reading Anime Character I Would Like to Meet — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 10)
