Discussing the AoT no Requiem Part 2 Fanfiction 

Dialogue and scenarios I wanted to see in the official manga series and the kino that was promised. Reviewing the doujin and fanfic AoT No Requiem Part 2.

“It is a rewrite of the last three chapters of Attack on Titan (137, 138, 139) and combined into ONE long chapter updated into parts.” 

Read the fan made comic for yourself over on their website

Check out my thoughts on Part One of the fanfic here.

Wooo! This certainly was an improvement from Part One.

Why Is Anime Suddenly So Popular?

A discussion on the exploding popularity of anime in Western countries. Is Japanese pop culture the new fad for corporate America and big tech companies?

As many of us have known for years, the animation industry is built off the backs of exploited workers.

Stop Idolizing These People

Just a friendly reminder that criticism is healthy for a fandom, and to stop idolizing these people you do not know.

So as usual, I was going to write this a few days ago. But then stopped myself because I felt that I was being too harsh.

Was Zeke Targeted by Tom Ksaver to Inherit the Beast Titan?

Was Zeke Yeager targeted to inherit the Beast Titan the same way Grisha Yeager was to inherit the Attack Titan from Eren Kruger?

This is an Attack on Titan theory that contains mild – moderate manga spoilers (from ch. 121 onward).

So for a few years now, there has been this persisting theory: The Owl and The Beast Titan Tom Xaver were working together the whole time. 

Maybe they were both Eldian Restorationists, but differing ideals made them go about their mission alternatively. Or maybe, it was always supposed to be this way.

Learning Japanese through Manga

Is reading manga good for learning Japanese?

The warm rays of spring are almost upon us in America which means one thing: convention season is almost here!

Whether you’ve been neglecting your studies or have yet begun, this is a post for anyone who would like to study and improve their Japanese using manga.

This post takes into account that you have already taken formal classes while learning grammatical rules, the three Japanese writing systems of hiragana, katakana and kanji, and have the ability to formulate basic sentences.

These are the basic requirements to read simple manga in Japanese.

Was Lelouch Alive at the End of Code Geass?

Was Lelouch still alive at the end of Code Geass? And if so, does that make Lelouch an immortal? What about his pact with C.C.?

So, it’s taken me a while to write on this topic in particular.

Not because I have nothing to say – on the contrary, I have loads to say on this issue. Only problem is, apparently so did everyone else! Haha.

How Will Attack on Titan End?

Will Eren Yeager indeed pull a ‘Lelouch’ and become humanity’s enemy? Or will The Rumbling kill them all? Series spoilers for both Attack on Titan and Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion after this point.

So I started watching Code Geass based on something I heard continually tossed around the fandom: “Eren will pull a Lelouch – he won’t kill everyone.”
