Fate Apocrypha opens with the ambiguous words of an unidentified voice: “This is not a tale of servants. Nor is this a tale of masters. And not a tale of saints, either. This is a tale…where a man grants his wish.” (1.1 “Apocrypha: The Great Holy Grail War”). One of the series’ tasks is to… Read More Fate Apocrypha: Selflessness and Selfishness
He is risen! If you go to church or are around Christians much today, you’ll likely hear this phrase repeated a lot, followed by “He is risen indeed!” Again and again, we repeat to each other the good news: Jesus Christ, God in flesh, the perfect man, who died on our behalf, has risen from… Read More Easter 2017: The Hope of Resurrection
Despite what people believe about happy endings, whether they think they’re the paragon of a good series or trite and boring, they can be done well. They have come to be what we expect in all stories, even if they are poorly written. As we now arrive at the point leading to ACCA’s conclusion, it… Read More ACCA: The Cost of Trust
It might be silly of me to write a serious post about Mob Psycho 100. After all, nothing about this show is meant to be taken seriously, right?

But at this point, it’s really hard not to hold his actions from the first eighteen episodes against him (he wasn’t too… Read More Annalyn’s Corner: Are You a “Self-Proclaimed Knight”?
This week, JP (Japesland) and Casey (CutsceneAddict) start a three-part series focused on our podcast’s co-host’s favorite anime. This time around, we chat about Casey’s all-time favorite anime (spoilers: it’s in the header image for the episode). However, while you are likely very familiar with her favorite, you’re likely much less familiar with some of the reasoning behind her… Read More TangleCast 20: Our Favorite Anime – Casey
I didn’t expect to like Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash. But, as I wrote in the season reviews, it turned out to be fairly enjoyable. In fact, I found it soothing, almost like something from the slice of life genre: a perfect wind-down show for the end of a busy day. I saw it as a kind of… Read More Annalyn’s Corner: Grimgar and Discordant People
