I spent too much time translating this year to read much of anything, so you’re not getting a proper end of year post.
In any case, we’ve entered that awkward space between seasons. The taint of anime, if you will. Perhaps zoomers would more readily understand it as the Backrooms of anime, a liminal space where you’re chased around by video essays singing praises for the latest prestige shounen until you phase through the floor and plummet toward the next heap of shows. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of isekai to break your fall. You know, fans of the Backrooms and adjacent media would probably get a kick out of Otherside Picnic. I think there’s some serious potential in pushing it with that crowd. But I digress.
Otherside Picnic and Castlevania 2 have taught me that it’s a risky proposition to traverse supernatural territory at night, so consider this post a sort of encampment, a safe haven until the dawn has broken and the creepy crawlies have retreated. Soon it will be safe to seek out an exit once more, but until then, join me in pondering what has passed and what is yet to come. Continue reading “the [E]nd of anime” →
It’s been an exciting week. From lesbian tomato innuendo to choreographed maid slaughter, truly this season has something to offer no matter one’s preferences and proclivities. Now that everything I’m interested in has aired, let’s explore how they made me feel, because I have feelings too, god damn it. Continue reading “Fall 2022 Anime – One week in” →

Don’t expect much from this. It’s just links to a few songs I liked from games released in 2021. Come back in a few weeks and there might be a real post. Continue reading “[Moogy] VGM I liked in 2021” →
This is a list of especially fascinating, provocative, humorous, invigorating, edifying, or otherwise compelling media that I, Moogy, the one and only, the almighty arbiter of taste and apex of the JOP hierarchy, consumed over the course of year 21 of our lord Tanaka Romeo. There’s a lot to cover, and my motivation can only hold out for so long, so let’s jump right into it.

So this is a new post format we’re trying out to see if it will stick. Every other week or so we’ll have a collaborative post by various contributors to the blog discussing what we’re currently reading – the format is designed to be a bit more casual than full reviews, so that we can just get our thoughts out in a more immediate manner on whatever we’ve been spending our time with.
Do let us know if you’d like to see more in this format; I’m not quite sure it has enough meat on its bones in the current iteration. I would like do to at least one more test post with more authors… hint hint.
Anyway, this week’s posters are sacred, Wahfuu, and myself (Moogy). Continue reading “What are we reading? Test Run” →
I’m going to review literally everything I read, watched, or played this year, and there’s nothing any of you can do to stop me. This will be a two-part series, mostly because I’m terrible.
Please be aware that all statements presented in this post are objective truths and if you disagree with me on anything then it is because religion has stolen your soul and made you its slave. Continue reading “Moogy’s Year End Extravaganza （かわいい） – Part 1” →
There was a Wahfuu here. He’s dead now.
