This is a film I’ve been sitting on for a few weeks but haven’t had anytime to take a look with other stuff going on. A week has opened up however, and I think it’s no better time than to get this out. This has been the big success story of the year, but how is it as an actual film? After the cut let’s take a dive into Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen TrainRead More »
Welcome back to Don’t @ Me. The place where, like Hayasaka’s wonder ‘hey, hey’. I burst into a room to give you my thoughts and opinions on pretty much anything in this world of anime, etc, etc, blah blah. Today I’m just talking about the anime I’ve been watching this season, along with some other stuff. So let’s get into it after the cut!
(Spoilers for the conclusion of Demon Slayer: Kimestu no Yaiba)
Last week I said I needed a vacation, and I finally have one. Yet rest and relaxation will not stop this! Welcome to Don’t @ Me, where unlike the Crunchyroll anime awards, I tend to give non “mainstream” (and seriously wtf does that mean for anime?) opinions on everything regarding Anime, Manga and the like. This week we got eight points on different things, including those anime awards. Let’s get into it after the cut!
Don’t worry guys, I got some classic stuff coming your way. We’ll be looking at Babylon and possibly the long awaited blog post on Yosuga no Sora this week. For now though, I want to take another crack at our new subtopic.
This is Shallower Dives, were I give you a review of a series in three sentences or less. No long ass essays, no stretching ideas or ideology around a plot. Just a straight and to the point review. Today we are looking at those classic shonen series and shonen like shows. Let’s get into it after the cut.
I have made it clear on this blog that I do not engage in “hype.” The truth is is that I hate hype. I loathe it. Too often hype leads to unrealistic expectations, and those expectations, when confronted with the reality of what a show is, it can lead to disappointment and worst of all, fan backlash.
Getting exciting for things is good, but placing all your hopes and dreams on a single show often never works out. Sometimes it is best to take a step back, let the “hype” die down and then examine a show and your feeling towards it.
So yeah, after the cut let’s take a dive into the second cour of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
It’s September, which means kids are going back to school, but that won’t stop anime opinions from being made. Don’t @ Me returns to slap the homework of 8 more spicy opinions on anything related to anime and manga. Buckle up for it after the cut.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has rapidly become a fan favorite this season due to it’s great story and unfairly high production values. The opening song, done by J-pop superstar LiSA is a catch beat as well! So the Tune of the Week this time around is the anime’s opening theme: Gurenge by LiSA!
The Summer season of anime is just about to get started which means we’ve now reached the halfway point for Anime 2019. So far the year has been a bit more subdued than the banner year that was 2018, but there have still been some hits. Join me after the cut as I give you my preliminary bests and worsts of everything anime has offered this year. This list is absolutely subject to change as we still got two seasons left to go!
I am becoming more and more convinced that the 3-episode rule is both a flawed concept of watching anime, and also a pretty great way to a sense of a series. If that sounds weird, then it really is, but as I keep watching anime seasons I am finding that there is no real bulletproof way to look at a series.
Case in point, the anime that we are discussing today is that kind of show that can’t really fit nicely into the 3 episode rule. After the cut let’s take a look at Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.
