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.

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.

The Dogs of Marley – Shingeki no Kyojin Chapter 138 Review

This is a review of the Shingeki no Kyojin monthly manga, Chapter 138: A Long Dream.

Check out my review of SnK Chapter 137 here. 

I’m calling it now. The final chapter for the Attack on Titan series will either be called “waking up” or “a return to reality”.  

Something along those lines.

Hallucigenia – the Primordial Spinal Creature from Attack on Titan – Anime Anthology

My crazy and unceremonious intro to the Anime Anthology series on this blog. Let’s start with the primordial spinal creature that started in all in the Attack on Titan series – Hallucigenia.

Please beware of general end game manga spoilers and the Ymir Fritz Founding Titan origin story.

So, let me tell you a little story real quick before I begin what may end up being the anthology series of a lifetime.

Eren Won. Zeke and Armin Save the Day – Shingeki no Kyojin Chapter 137 Review

This is a review of the Shingeki no Kyojin monthly manga, Chapter 137: Titans.

Check out my review of SnK Chapter 136 here. 

So I should have done this earlier, but better late than never, right? 

It’s funny, last night I held off on writing this after reading the chapter because it was almost midnight. Now, it’s just past 12:30 am as I sit and type this. My reasoning yesterday to not start this was because it was late. I have no clue what my excuse would be now. 

Anywho…this review is going to be short and sweet. 

Why? 

Because our boy Eren won.

It’s Too Late to Apologize – Shingeki no Kyojin Chapter 134 Review

This is a review of the Shingeki no Kyojin monthly manga, Chapter 134: In the Depths of Despair.

My alternative post title for this chapter would be ‘Eren plays baseball in Marley’.

But, ♫ it’s too late to apologize ♫ is just too melodramatic to pass up.

Falco the Flying Boy Wonder – Shingeki no Kyojin Chapter 133 Review

This is a review of the Shingeki no Kyojin monthly manga, Chapter 133: Sinner.

Alright, it’s been 17 days. I’ve been pissed off at Chapter 133 of Shingeki no Kyojin for 17 days.

I’m getting tired of writing and re-writing this review. Reading and re-reading chapters of the manga over.

Might as well just post the damn thing now.
