A List of Great Openings + Endings from Anime I’ve Never Seen/Finished

I really like the music that anime presents to us. It can be catchy, emotional, soothing, intense and overall, fun to listen to. So when it comes to openings and endings (and even OSTs and insert songs), I always look forward to them, even if I’m half way or even 100 episodes into an anime ...

Favorites of the Spring 2018 Season So Far

Another half-an-anime-season goes by and surprisingly, I’ve been keeping up with 3x the amount of shows that I watched last season! …I have to get SOME credit for that, I believe coming from a person who only watched like four shows in the Winter season. But in seriousness, I’m loving the Spring season so far ...

Getting to Talk About Idols with a Fellow Blogger

First off, let me say that it’s been pretty busy in this time around but thankfully I’ve been finding time to work on some posts here and there. Just be on the lookout for a post or two on here and also over on #moe404! 🙂 Secondly, I want to make this short because this ...

Top 10 Favorite K-On! Songs

In this week’s post, we’re going back in time, about a year or so ago when I made this same list on my old blog. Now that I look back and vaguely remember that post, I think I have to change a few things up to make it the perfect list of my personal favorite ...

Indirect Kisses: Do They Really Mean Anything?

Hi and welcome to “Discussing Romance” with a guy who has never experienced an ounce of romance in his entire life!

“ISM” (Sphere) | Album Review

Hi there and ever since I reviewed an album by the J-rock band Polkadot Stingray, I just had the urge to review more music! I have a bunch of albums and compilations that I want to talk about on this blog, both anime related and general Japanese music, so consider this a recurring segment on ...

BanG Dream’s Anime Song Covers Are Amazing

Rhythm games have been very popular over the years and most of the games we have seen in the past and present have originated or are from none other than Japan. Dance Dance Revolution, Beatmania, Taiko Drum Master, the list is endless with the creations of rhythm games in Japan. Now that we’re in an age where ...

Merchandise Can Take Over Your Life

The past two years were filled with firsts for me whether it be discovering really cool Japanese bands, watching an anime film in a theater for the first time or even becoming a writer on another blog. One of my favorites “firsts” that I experienced in the past couple of years was buying anime/Japanese culture ...

“Zenchi Zennou/全知全能” (Polkadot Stingray) | Album Review

One day while I was listening to my song compilation of random J-music that I discovered on Spotify, the last song on the playlist came to an end. If you’ve ever used Spotify before, after you’ve gone through all the songs in a playlist, it automatically plays music that is similar to what you just ...
