January 20, 2019 § Leave a comment

I’m starting a new type of episode called Anime Sermon where I read passages from Deleuze and Guattari’s book, A Thousand Plateaus, and then discuss a preachy anime. For our first episode, we’re reviewing Dragon Ball Super: Broly, which is currently screening across the US.

Today, I read from Page 272-274, Chapter 10, Section: Memories of a Molecule, you can read along here

Dusk Maiden of Amnesia

October 19, 2017 § Leave a comment

I got one of my twitter buddies, Animated Ink who has their own show, Oldtaku no Radio (which is also pretty good) on as a guest to review the ghost waifu series, Dusk Maiden of Amnesia.

The amount of nerd-ing happening is really high. We spoil the series at about 18 minutes, give or take. I think they stop after like 2 minutes or something, but you know how it goes here.

I’ve noticed loose continuity between this episode and the last episode, I’ll probably continue this practice.

This is a crazy yokai anime (which I really like) that plays into the yokai Japanese nationalist genre through it’s narrative and character development and I absolutely love this it through it’s inconsistencies. With a middle school protagonist. It’s got a lot of anime strikes against it but check it out lmao.
