It scrapes and breathes.

I’d like to say it rattles, but it’s far too firm a grip for that; I’d like to say it pushes me to action, but all too often I find myself isolated and afraid. There’s this monster inside of me, you see, and it can strike at any moment; it makes mountains out of mole…… Continue reading It scrapes and breathes.

To Ship or Not to Ship: That is the Question -misquoted and misrepresented

“To ship, or not to ship: that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous secondhand chemistry, Or to take arms against a sea of poorly construed AUs, And by opposing end them? To ship: to interpret; No surety; but by interpretation to say we end…… Continue reading To Ship or Not to Ship: That is the Question -misquoted and misrepresented

Regarding the Puddle Jumper: Thoughts on Life and Love

A family member posted something on her Facebook page. It looked like this: At first glance, this seems admirable, but there was something that I wanted her to understand for her own wellbeing, and now I want to share it with you as well, because–yes, unrelated to anime, I know–it is important. I feel the…… Continue reading Regarding the Puddle Jumper: Thoughts on Life and Love

My First Yandere: “What have you done!?!?”

It’s fairly safe to say that an anime viewer, regardless of their preference in genre, will at some point be exposed to the baffling, fascinating conundrum of a yandere. The yandere will, if stumbled upon in its natural habitat, appear kindly, supportive, and cheerful at first. Don’t be fooled–unless you want to end up in…… Continue reading My First Yandere: “What have you done!?!?”

“Monochrome no Kiss:” A Pinnacle Expose of Ciel’s Mind

I have a serious discussion to get down to today, revolving around “Monochrome no Kiss.” TO GET DIRECTLY TO THE SERIOUS LYRICAL INTERPRETATION, skip to the triple line break just before the embedded video. If not planning to skip, read on. Rambling rife! Word economy not undertaken. NO apologies will be issued. You have been…… Continue reading “Monochrome no Kiss:” A Pinnacle Expose of Ciel’s Mind

Watch Along: Ouran High School Host Club, Ep. 9 (DUB)

Blogger’s Note: This is the second recording that my friend, Ginger, and I made together. It was so fun having a guest for the Watch Along, and she’s really come to think that Ouran is pretty darn awesome. I mean, who wouldn’t right? I have not listened to it yet, so I have no idea…… Continue reading Watch Along: Ouran High School Host Club, Ep. 9 (DUB)

Watch Along: Ouran High School Host Club, Ep. 8 (DUB) –“VLOG! PODCAST?”

Blogger’s Note: This Watch Along is a first! I had a guest with me today, my friend “Ginger.” I decided to do something a bit different to accommodate our mutual commentary, and Ginger was a great sport. Ginger isn’t super into anime like I am, so…well, just watch and see! How can you not love…… Continue reading Watch Along: Ouran High School Host Club, Ep. 8 (DUB) –“VLOG! PODCAST?”

Watch Along: Ouran High School Host Club, Ep. 7 (DUB)

Blogger’s Note: This Twitter thing is working out better than I expected, which is to say that I actually Tweet and people know I’m not dead between blog posts. 😀 Jungle Pool SOS! [Spoilers Ahoy!] I love this song. WHAT DO YOU MEAN “THIS SHOW AVAILABLE UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th,” NETFLIX? WHAT??? WHAT!??!? Considering Vampire Knight…… Continue reading Watch Along: Ouran High School Host Club, Ep. 7 (DUB)

Watch Along: Ouran High School Host Club, Ep. 6 (DUB)

Blogger’s note: I write to you from my new “office” in our new house! *bum bum bum!!!* I say “office” because it is JUST as much a play space as a work space, but you catch my drift. SO WHITE AND PINK AND FLUFFY AND GIRLY AND FULL OF BOOKS AND ANIME~~~~~~! This whole moving…… Continue reading Watch Along: Ouran High School Host Club, Ep. 6 (DUB)
