Tiger and Bunny: Rad and Bad Anime Dads

Since its inception, the superhero genre has been the playground of the male power fantasy. With their extraordinary abilities, superheroes exert control in an uncontrollable world. They function outside the law and society, beholden only to an honor code they impose upon themselves. Instead of being limited by their tragic backstories, they rise above them and seek to right the wrongs the villains of the world committed against them.

I found about the first half of episode 05 to be a bit boring. It involved a lot of exposition and awkward small-talk, but that was sort of just the nature of the orienteering event. The episode definitely picked up, though. I really enjoyed Aya's optimistic view of the whole event as a "happy memory."

Sword Art Online II: Episode 01 Review

It's been about two years since Sword Art Online ended and waves of fans began waiting anxiously for the next season. As you may recall, I concluded the first season of SAO with some major issues. First of all, the last two episodes irked me with the graphic nature of the scenes, and the resolutions were downright weak. Secondly, I felt like Asuna's character went from a glorious warrior to a housewife for no good reason.

Mushi-shi Season 2: Episode 08-10 Review

This season of Mushi-shi has been a much darker, colder take on the mushi so far, but episodes 8 through 10 do much to shake the chill off. Winter remains a prominent theme in all three, but in each episode the lessons seem to focus on ‘just because you can doesn’t mean you should’ and the innate balancing act that is nature.

One Week Friends: Episode 02-04 Review

One Week Friends started out with an interesting premise of friendship transcending short term memory loss problems, but as of episode 4, it’s beginning to feel more like a gimmick and less like an actual obstacle. It’s unfortunate because the first episode set something great up, but the subsequent episodes are building on that initial framework while at the same time turning Fujimiya’s disability into a conditional nuisance and convenient story telling device.

Cosplayer Spotlight #11: Reya Skye

Tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Taryn, but I go by Terra or my cosplay alias, Reya Skye. Not to sound like a hipster, but I'm from a small town you've probably never heard of in the panhandle of Florida.

I didn't know what character I should cosplay, because I wear Hijab, so my friend gave me a picture of Hatsune Miku in Hijab that she got from DeviantArt.
