Let’s Talk Monetization

Quick announcement to say that as of today, I will be including monetization options on the blog.

Formulating All Hail Haruhi Season 3

So true to my last post of 2017, I want to take the opportunity to put forward a content plan for the blog over the next 12 months. One of the goals I set out for myself was to post at least once every month. Another goal was to take inspiration from the multitude of […]

Excalibur: Is it a Man? Is it a Sword? NO! It’s Anime’s Greatest Husbando

I must confess. I’ve never been one to care about the waifu and husbando sub-culture within the anime community.
