Shoujo’s Shojo “Tells & Tropes” Master List <3

You've probably never looked at a title and wondered, "Is this shojo?" and let's be honest; you'll also probably never need to ask. The hallmarks of shojo are usually pretty obvious on sight, but at some point I began wondering if anyone ever bothered to make a master list of the tells, tropes, and subtropes. … Continue reading Shoujo’s Shojo “Tells & Tropes” Master List ❤

“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

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.

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)

Anime I Would Recommend — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 9)

I've been at this whole blogging thing for a while (four years!), and in that time, I've recommended quite a bit of anime, and so to recommend another is no great stretch. Today, I will suggest that all my readers stop what they are doing (if convenient!) and watch Pretear (dub)! Pretear is a classic … Continue reading Anime I Would Recommend — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 9)

Anime I Wish That I Lived In — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 7)

Like last time, I'll assert that I enjoy my real world existence and those therein too much to sacrifice them in order to live in an anime world. I will say, however, that if I were to be dropped into one, I think I'd fit best into the world of Clannad. In addition to it … Continue reading Anime I Wish That I Lived In — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 7)

Anime Character I Wish That I Was — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 6)

Another boring post from me today, but I don't wish that I was any character, anime or otherwise. I enjoy being the real world me far too much to sacrifice my being for the chance to be someone else! That's the whole post! (Bonus points to you if you can name both of the anime … Continue reading Anime Character I Wish That I Was — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 6)

Anime Character I Find Attractive — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 5)

Okay, so the following works perfectly with this prompt. A while ago, I posted this on Twitter: In my response, I included one live action and several otome characters as well. Here, we see in order: Akira from “Nil Admirari no Tenbin” Dante Falzone from “Piofiore” Shiranui from “Hakuouki” Roy from FMAB Azazel from “Rage … Continue reading Anime Character I Find Attractive — 31 Day Anime Challenge (Day 5)
