Why Evangelion is Optimistic (Legacy Post)

I wrote this over a year ago when I first got into analysis, and I'm surprised how much I like it despite how wordy it is. Eva really meant a lot to me and still informs a lot of my personal philosophy. I enjoyed rereading this and I hope you will too. I would write … Continue reading Why Evangelion is Optimistic (Legacy Post)

Why Gun Gale Online is Hard to Take Seriously

https://youtu.be/uKcusKv2w34 Gun Gale Online’s inconsistencies in the form of weird mechanics and player behavior make its world and meta hard to take seriously.   The worst offender is LLENN’s ridiculous speed. She can dodge bullets mid-flight while the next closest power is Pito’s just above average strength.At least Pito’s 20-man killstreak is the result of … Continue reading Why Gun Gale Online is Hard to Take Seriously

Anime Challenge Day 4 – My Favorite Female Anime Character

Day 3 If the competition for favorite male anime character was a small, local tournament, the female competition is EVO by comparison. Strong in design, personality and what they represent, I won’t be able to justice to them all, so don’t assume word count is proportional to quality. I’ll have an honorable mentions section at … Continue reading Anime Challenge Day 4 – My Favorite Female Anime Character

Anime Challenge Day 3 – My Favorite Male Anime Character

Day 2                                                                                                 Day 4   The battle of the males in my anime list may sound like the title of a trashy anime, but I assure you, it just transpired; the victor has already raised his 3D-textured head in triumphant victory. Granted, the competition’s ferocity is questionable at best, I’ve only seen 50 anime or … Continue reading Anime Challenge Day 3 – My Favorite Male Anime Character
