Our second volume of One Piece covers a large chunk of the Buggy fight. As the series has grown, I found myself finding some of these earlier arcs a little bit boring. Not until Arlong Park do things really start to pick up steam, and with Arlong Park also being my favorite story arc of … Continue reading One Piece Volume 2

One Piece Wednesday – Romance Dawn
Before One Piece there was Romance Dawn. How do you even start to tackle a titan of storytelling and worldbuilding like One Piece? From the beginning of course.

Spice & Wolf Volume 7 Review
We’ve arrived at the first Side Colors! I know there’s at least two of them since I have up till volume 11 on my shelf, which is Side Colors II.

What manga have I been reading?
Warmth update: It’s still too warm. Hopefully only two more days as of writing this though, and then it’ll go below 25 for a while. Not amazing still, but definitely a lot better than high 20s with nights that don’t drop below 20 celsius. My room is an oven. So the last week or so … Continue reading What manga have I been reading?

Video killed the radio star
About 90% of manga and anime I consume are pure escapism. I watch and read these things because there’s cool fights, fun sports or adorable romance. I love slice of life because it makes me feel happy and at peace when it's done well. That’s why Yuru Camp is one of my favorite manga. But … Continue reading Video killed the radio star
The return of Hunter x Hunter
There are few anime and manga out there that are as universally liked as Togashi’s Hunter x Hunter. Receiving two anime adaptations, one covering a vast majority of the manga content and even several movies you could say that this manga has been a massive success. I’ve heard people say that it could have been … Continue reading The return of Hunter x Hunter
Spice & Wolf Volume 5 Review
I feel like every time I start a new volume of this novel series I start by saying that this is the last novel that has story elements I recognize from the anime. Maybe with the exception of volume 4. Now that we’re in volume 5, I found even more characters I remember. I really … Continue reading Spice & Wolf Volume 5 Review
