When you claim someone to have created a successful post, one that is often attributed with a strong base of views, replies and all the other stuff that goes along with metrics that can be measured by an algorithm, the source material is seldom politics.

Mecha anime and I have a tenuous relationship with one another: I love the ideas, concepts and designs behind the mech suits, the technological infusions into more mundane aspects of coming of age stories and sometimes bleak social commentaries about the constraints that the modern world places on the youth to not only magically solve … Continue reading Robots, Sex and Adolescence (Darling in the FranXX: Light Thoughts on Sex and Sexual Repression)
I’m actually being serious here, or at least, marginally serious: Let’s talk words, shall we?

November was an exceedingly busy month for me. I had finished a very taxing Chemistry class and had moved right along to a double-feature of English and Biology for the next term of my lessons. English wasn’t going to be terribly difficult for me, but I was anticipating it to be very heavy on homework … Continue reading The Conclusion of a Habit
