So, on Wednesday (as a ‘Happy Valentines’ to all Voltron fans?) DreamWorks released this tantalizing trailer. Season 5 is set to hit our streaming screens on March 2nd, and I could not be more excited. So, with the holidays coming early this year, let’s see what they’ve offered us to get started: To be fair, … More Trailer Speculation: Voltron Season 5!
In what is fast becoming signature style, Season 4 Voltron opened with a seismic rift that ratcheted the current storyline up into ever-increasing stakes. Featuring a Keith-centric episode, the opening to the much anticipated instalment explored the real breakdown of Team Voltron through its acting-leader’s torn loyalties. Swearing it his personal mission at the end of Season … More The Abdication of Keith Kogane
Possibly the only way you could be unaware of this anime is if you’ve been living under a rock since October 2016. (Fair play to anyone who has, and have you got room for an extra lodger?). As much as I never chose to watch this show, I was undeniably aware of it; I even … More [Review] Yuuri On Ice!!
As usual, I’m late to the party, but early enough that it’s still in full swing. Yes, I’m talking about Voltron: Legendary Defender, a Netflix reboot of the ’84 series, and the latest offering from the producers of Avatar The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra. If even those credentials don’t assure you you’re in … More Voltron: Legendary Defender
In every story, I love the human element; the loyalty, laughter and sacrifice of best friends who face the world together and come out fighting. Who become like family. Who will do anything to protect one another. Who may be complete pains in the ass, but are loved anyway. One of the things I’m enjoying … More Best Bleach Friendships
This post is in reply to avathenerd, so all credit for the original idea goes to her :). Falling in love with fictional characters is my whole, hopeless MO, and crushing on anime guys just seems like a natural graduation of that. Or a warning sign that I should seek professional help. In both respects, … More Favourite Anime Crushes
So, I may or may not have been watching Book of Circus on repeat and been falling in love and having my heart ripped out in cycles. [The life of a socially anxious introvert must get its perks where it will]. This, of course, absolutely means that I have to do a blog post about … More Thoughts on Black Butler: Book of Circus
Dark, brooding and badass, Teen Wolf’s Derek Hale is mysterious in all the right places, to say nothing of his other assets. Morally ambiguous, and with a spate of continually questionable motives, he treads the line between hero and villain so narrowly that he seems to have shares in both sides. Yet there is something … More In Defence of Derek Hale
From watching this show as a bright-eyed seven-year old, to more recently – and slightly shamefully – as my twenty-three-year old self, the one thing which consistently struck me was the depth of character which underpinned this largely dismissed series. I’ve written about similar themes before, as some of you may know, but, keeping nineties … More Digimon: The Unacknowledged Paradigm (Adventure and 2.0)
From the outset, I would like to stress that these are THEORIES, i.e. with no solid basis in fact. On top of that they’re just a bit of fun designed to take a stab at the all-consuming question: Why wasn’t Wizardmon reborn? 1) He is hybridized / not a ‘full’ Digimon Most Digimon take the … More Wizardmon: Theories On The Failure To Reconfigure
