Literally one of the best romances of the past decade and now its just over…sigh…

Once again, it seems, my pension for tuning out the news as much as possible has caught up with me. As per the usual, I’ve missed an incredibly important story and am now going to be super late to the party in terms of actually talking about it. Well, as they say, better late than never. For those uninitiated with the story, let us just jump right in.

Being as ill-prepared as I usually am, I kind of totally forgot about Valentine’s Day until literally the day before. Because of that, I did not actually have any kind of holiday-related post planned, so think of this as my extremely late and now totally irrelevant Valentine’s day post. Yeah? Cool.

It’s been a while since I talked about “One Punch Man” at any serious length. Now, it’s not that I have not wanted to, but rather I just have not had much of a reason. But now that I have this mini-series, I figured now would be as good a time as ever to revisit both Saitama and what makes the show so great.

Feels like it's been a while since I have talked about one of my favorite games of all time, probably because it has been. Not without good reason, obviously, as it has been an insane and frankly, still very depressing year. Still, it's worth remembering everything that happened.

It certainly has been a long time coming, huh?

I don’t know if I’ve ever made it super clear, but I love romance anime. Like, love love romance anime, probably to an unhealthy degree. That is, when its done right. There are plenty of romance anime that have left a sour taste in my mouth, either because they are built on a really strange premise like “My Little Monster,” or because there is zero actually chemistry between the characters themselves, like in “Say I love You.”

Just when I thought the series could not get any better, “The Promised Neverland” manages to up the stakes in an unmistakably original way. The show already had a definingly good first episode in its first season, but man did Cloverworks put in the effort again.

Two positive reviews in a row? why it might just be a Christmas miracle!
