Anime Tuesdays: Cardcaptor Sakura

It really is time for another throwback recommendation, and it’s gotta be my all-time favorite Cardcaptor Sakura. See, while it makes all the sense in the world that fourth-grader Sakura Kinomoto’s adventures entertained me as a child, the anime has truly passed the test of

Anime Tuesdays: Toradora!

You know how people say nothing’s a $100 bill, and thus not everyone is going to like it? You might’ve also heard that exceptions make the rule. And the exception to this rule is Toradora! Even haters love this show. And with good reason. Toradora! encompases

Anime Tuesdays: Macross Frontier

Even though I am a blatant Nerd, spatial science fiction escapes me. Although sci-fi elements are common in anime, Macross Frontier really sticks to the archetype of space stories as a whole. So then, why am I recommending it? Because some works transcend their genre, and

15 Signs You’re Dating Sylvia Plath

Sylvia Plath was born on October 27, 1932. She graced this earth for only 30 years, but that was enough time to work her way into the English canon and the hearts of many a reader. While she is more widely known for her Ariel poems (including

Anime Tuesdays: Baccano!

Whenever I have absolutely no idea of what to watch, I’ll scroll past AnimeFreak’s list of alphabetically organized anime. I do this in the hopes that something will jump out at me. But I also do this in the fear that I will wind up

Anime Tuesdays: Pokémon (Indigo League)

It is a truth universally acknowledged that if you were a kid in the 90s, you watched and played Pokémon. So evidently I’m not writing this review to encourage you to “discover” the world of pocket monsters. Rather, I’d like you to rejoice in its second
