Piecing Detective Pikachu’s Plot Together Through Trailers

Is Detective Pikachu one of Harry Goodman’s experiments?

So…it has been quite a while since you all heard from me.

I am not one who actively follows the whole astrology craze or prescribes to it in their daily life. Yes, I know my astrological sign and occasionally will read a horoscope or two if it’s in front of me – but that is the extent. However, whatever has been going on this entire month of February has knocked me for a loop. I don’t know what was in retrograde or fully understand what ‘pieces season’ is despite googling it, but I do know that I am feeling better now today. So, let’s get to writing!

The Hero’s Journey in Animation – The Dragon Prince S1 Review

This is a review of Netflix’s The Dragon Prince, season one.

I’d been meaning to watch this for a while now. I should have had this review completed back when The Dragon Prince came to AFNYCC, but alas – sometimes the things we intend are just not so.

Introducing Honor Back to the Fandom

Avatar: The Last Airbender, everyone’s favorite show that Nickelodeon slowly killed (I’ll explain later) is getting a reboot on Netflix! I began having war flashbacks after reading a few succinate tweets, so I decided to dig a bit and pull up some of the fandom’s history and relationship with Nickelodeon.

So, this article has been sitting in my blogging folder since the live-action series production news was released. I thought a dozen times about publishing it, then my concerns for the fandom were quelled. Except…on Reddit.

Maybe a month ago now, I came across this article written by someone who clearly had never watched the show. Sure, it could have been an assigned topic they were unfamiliar with, but even reading a synopsis on the wiki would give you more information than whatever that article attempted to confer.

Hence, my posting of this article in its original form which has still aged pretty well given the number of updates and news we’ve received.
