“If that’s not majestic, I don’t know what is.” —initial thoughts on “Hetalia Axis Powers”

The first and most important thing I have to say about this title is as follows; Jerry Jewell, the voice behind Victor Nikiforov in the Yuri!!! On Ice dub, also voices Russia in Hetalia Axis Powers.

The second thing I should probably mention is that I'm … Continue reading “If that’s not majestic, I don’t know what is.” —initial thoughts on “Hetalia Axis Powers”

“Band of Brothers: This is going to take me like 17 years.” (Or, A Sane Person’s Commentary on “Brothers Conflict” – dub)

Enjoying this title should probably be considered shameful if the number of times I shouted, "WHY ARe yoU DoING THat ShE's YOuR SisTER!?!" is any indication. In Brother's Conflict (hereafter referred to as BroCon), protagonist Ema (also referred to as "Chi") is thrust into a new family dynamic when her father gets remarried after many years of … Continue reading “Band of Brothers: This is going to take me like 17 years.” (Or, A Sane Person’s Commentary on “Brothers Conflict” – dub)

An Anime That I Wish Had Continued (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 30)

Serious Blogger's Note: I've come to the end of the 30 Day Anime Challenge. My goal was to finish the challenge in exactly 30 days, posting one post each day beginning on January 1st and running through January 30th. It wasn't always easy, to be honest.

There are so many other “favorite” questions over the course of this challenge, to boot! … Continue reading My Favorite Anime So Far (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 2)

Because “Princess Jellyfish” (DUB), that’s why.

Blogger’s Note: Oh, anime enthusiasts, I’m tired. I’m so, so, so tired. I think I’m even giving Lethargic Ramblings (@AlwaysLethargic on Twitter, btw) a run for their money in terms of exhaustion.
