I’d Love to Host An “Anime That Everyone Disagrees With” Panel

I’ve seen some Twitter talk regarding anibloggers hosting their own panels at anime conventions for a while and it got me thinking what I would like to discuss if I ever got to partake in the activity. There’s a few subjects that interest me that I don’t write about on my blog because words can’t really express them properly. Stuff like starting an anime blog and how to be popular. Thoughts regarding what anime are essential viewing. Who would win in a “battle of the awesome” between Kamina from TTGL and Mako from KLK? Honestly, if the opportunity comes for me to host that kind of stuff, I’ll be all over it.

Realistic sports anime that are actually “not realistic in the slightest because of poorly integrated anime-isms” bore me. They always have bored me. They always will bore me. Continue reading

Random Dig at Western Cartoons

It’s a little too early in the new anime season for me to be judging it as of yet, but none of the new shows I tried have really clicked with me. So I figured that whilst I wait for Japan to give me something more to chew on, I should give attention to animation from the other side of the globe that I’ve just been getting into. Because cartoons from the West need love to. Yeah.
