Character Spotlight: Zombina

I had no idea how much I was going to love Monster Musume when I watched it. I pretty much assumed that the show was going to be a terrible monster girl harem anime and that was that. Turns out, it was probably one of the most entertaining shows I watched that entire season and […]

Character Spotlight: Ako Tamaki

A show that I didn’t expect it to be as good as it was last season was And You Thought There Is Never A Girl Online. There were a number of reasons for its success with me. It was a great comedy, a hilarious over-the-top representation of the normal daily lives of high school students […]

Character Spotlight: Chinatsu Kuramoto

I absolutely adored Flying Witch last season. It was the show that I went to when I wanted to just wind down, kick back and relax as I watched a nice, calm and fun anime. The show is full of great characters, adorable personalities. But no one in that show remotely eclipses the most adorable […]

Character Spotlight: Moka Akashiya

Hotaru is one of those characters who’s just so crazy and random that you can’t help but enjoy her every second she’s on the screen. And when you mix her into an anime that […]

Character Spotlight: Ren Ekoda

I loved Anne Happy, it was easily my favourite show from the Spring season of anime, no question. The show was full of life and cheesy jokes, over-the-top situations and a fantastically over-the-top cast of characters with a ton of ridiculous quirks. Out of all of them, there’s no doubt that my favourite from that […]

Character Spotlight: Rean Schwarzer

Generally speaking the lead character of JRPGs, especially when they’re male, they’re not exactly the brightest or the most interesting. They’re usually made to either be very bland so every player can associate themselves with him, or they’re designed to be way over-the-top, whether they’re super broody, super happy, or just super strong and tough.
