Fuck the Nines! Seriously: I don't even feel bad for you pricks!
Part One: The Train-wreck that just Keeps on Giving Part Two: A Technical Conglomeration of Suffering
I’m starting to develop a general theory that no anime that possesses the words “Record of...” or even just “Records” in general will be very good. Twice now I’ve been treated to anime possessing that word in the title and have been either overwhelmingly nauseated or underwhelmingly disappointed by what I’ve been subjected to (I … Continue reading It’s the Train-Wreck That Just Keeps on Giving (Record of Grancrest War – Analysis and Dissection)
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.

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
