30 Day Anime Challenge (Day 29): Favorite Anime You Wished Was Real

Hmmm I am going to have to go with Lord Marksman and Vanadis again.  Is this normal for a writing prompt of this nature?  There are so many reasons I like this anime.  I think my only caveat would be that I get to play the part of Tigre.  This is a seriously heroic epic … Continue reading 30 Day Anime Challenge (Day 29): Favorite Anime You Wished Was Real

30 Day Anime Challenge (Day 18): Favorite Supporting Female Anime Character

30 Day Anime Challenge (Day 18): Favorite Supporting Female Anime Character

This topic is a bit easier to undertake.  Anime is filled with supporting female characters, most of which are well designed and developed (some are over developed - Oh look...I made a funny 🙂 ).  Of the many I would have to say that my favorite in this category is Ludmila Lourie from Lord Marksman … Continue reading 30 Day Anime Challenge (Day 18): Favorite Supporting Female Anime Character

30 Day Anime Challenge (Day 14): Anime that Never Gets Old Not Matter How Many Times You Re-watch It

30 Day Anime Challenge (Day 14): Anime that Never Gets Old Not Matter How Many Times You Re-watch It

Once again, Lord Marksman and Vanadis takes the prize.  I can watch it weekly, go through the entire series of 12 episodes, and still look forward to watching it again.  I have started consciously NOT watching it on the off chance that I might actually get bored with it.  In short, if you haven't seen … Continue reading 30 Day Anime Challenge (Day 14): Anime that Never Gets Old Not Matter How Many Times You Re-watch It

30 Day Anime Challenge (Day 05): Anime You’re Ashamed You Enjoy

C'mon guys, give me a break.  I can NOT spend an entire 30 days writing about only two anime.  I certainly hope the categories widen out a bit.  As you well know, if you have ever read one of my reviews, Madan no Ou to Vanadis is one of my all-time favorites.  However it is … Continue reading 30 Day Anime Challenge (Day 05): Anime You’re Ashamed You Enjoy

First Efforts at Translation: Lord Marksman and Vanadis – vol. 14

First Efforts at Translation: Lord Marksman and Vanadis – vol. 14

As my readers will know, I have spent the last several months in an attempt to learn to speak and read (at least on an elementary level) the Japanese language.  So far I have memorized all of Hiragana (ひらがな) and am working diligently on Katakana (カタカナ) while working on the more common Kanji (漢字).  My … Continue reading First Efforts at Translation: Lord Marksman and Vanadis – vol. 14

Madan no Ou to Vanadis: You Can Never Have Too Many

Madan no Ou to Vanadis: You Can Never Have Too Many

I am not a huge fan of Harem anime but I have come to really appreciate Madan no Ou to Vanadis (Lord Marksman and Vanadis) for the value of the story it presents.  While it is clear that this, like all harem anime, is aimed directly at the adolescent otaku market, the dialog and story … Continue reading Madan no Ou to Vanadis: You Can Never Have Too Many
