5 Anime where the Side Characters are Better than the Main Character

Seeing the comments on the Winter 2019 anime season, many people seem to prefer Chika Fujiwara to Kaguya Shinomiya, the main character of Kaguya-sama: Love is War. And while I strongly disagree with that opinion, it has become an inspiration for this post, as I got reminded of the situations when I liked the side character of an anime more than the main character. Here are five such situations I could think of: New game! (MAL link) I didn’t really had any problems with Suzukaze Aoba. She was an enjoyable character and her story left a similar impact on me as the story of Shirobako did. It motivated me to work harder towards my goals of working as a video editor, and perhaps one day in anime. In fact, it helped me feel better about not being in my first choice university. My current one, computer science, isn’t exactly the Continue reading…

Top 10 Openings of 2018

As the year comes to an end, its time to make a few of those “best of x year” posts. My first one for this year will be about anime openings. Before I get started, I feel like there is one thing I should note: I actually don’t watch a lot of seasonal anime. It turns out that out of the 4 anime seasons in 2018, I only watched 21 seasonal anime (Fall 2018 included). The reason for this is that I only watch stuff that I feel I would like. I don’t think starting dozens of anime each season just because they are airing at that moment would work well for me.

I was at a gaming fair

Reboot InfoGamer, held in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, is “one of the biggest games shows in the world”, according to their official website. And my university was kind enough to take care of the transport and ticket costs for our one day visit. I was looking forward to this day a lot because I’ve seen Bandai Namco would be featured. This gave me some hope that they will present Jump Force. It turns out my hopes were actually fulfilled. Trying out Jump Force Since it was announced that the Hunter x Hunter characters Gon and Hisoka will feature in this game, I knew I wanted to buy it. And when they announced Kurapika will also be one of the playable characters, it’s fair to say my hype levels were quite high. Seeing I could actually try this game out made me so happy. Unfortunately, the version I could play Continue reading…

Top 10 Characters Who Wear Glasses

Let me tell you a very fun fact about me: I wear glasses at home. And I love making top-list posts so I thought why not make a top list of characters who wear glasses? *adjusts glasses* let’s get into it! 10. Iida Tenya (Boku no Hero Academia) We start off with the president of class 1-A. He really fits the role of class president. Maybe even too much. His brother, pro hero Ingenium has inspired him to become a hero. He may seem intimidating at first, but he is actually a really good friend and is very kindhearted. 9. Shiroe (Log Horizon) The Elder Tale expert, the master strategist. Wants to achieve his goals at any cost, and for that reason many call him “the villain in glasses”. The glasses, which he really loves to adjust. Doing that gives him enhanced focus and confidence for a short period of Continue reading…
