Recognition (Of my Laziness)

Well, the lovely blogger Aria over at The Animanga Spellbook nominated me for this. I did promise to actually respond to this one sooner or later, so... I guess I picked the "later" option, huh? Here's the rules of the thing, I guess: Rules Say thanks to who nominated you and leave a link back …

Bofuri – First Impressions

What? What do you mean it's too late in the season to still be doing First Impressions? What do you mean I'm a lazy butt who can't decide on shows to watch until halfway through a season? I don't know what you're talking about at all, guys. Welcome to Bofuri, a magical little gem unfortunately …

In/Spectre – First Impressions

I haven't talked about it much before on my blog, if at all. However, In/Spectre (also known as Kyokou Suiri) is probably my most-anticipated show that's starting this season. Seriously, I've read the source material, and I just love it to bits. And after this first episode, I can happily say, they've done a good …

Somali and the Forest Spirit – First Impressions

Boo! Did I scare you? I know, I know, it's been a while. The end of 2019 was just insane for me, and I simply didn't have the time to write much on my blog. But i'm back, and yes, It's finally time once more for me to drag my lazy butt out of an …

Demon Sayer Corps: Kimetsu no Yaiba 26 – Off the Training, Onto the Train

The Moyatorium

Belated final thoughts on last season’s hype.

Who’s who:

  • Purple = Aria the 14th Magic Conan
  • Green = Plyasm of the Wormhole
  • Blue Astral the Gemini
  • Red = Moya the Tori

1. What are your general thoughts on this episode? [Mandatory]

More train hype.

Loved the first half and didn’t mind the second either.

A very good episode, and a fitting endpoint for the season. It does leave me very hopeful for the Infinity Train movie, however!!

2. Did the episode fit your expectations, and in which ways did it differ from it? (If it does) [Mandatory]

…yup. We even got a bonus Muzan disguised as a woman (just to distinguish him from Michael Jackson).

That elaborate piece of architecture!!! It’s an upgrade of Kyougai’s house. I wonder if Kyougai helped build it. And gender-bent Muzan was indeed a pleasant surprise.

I loved the episode. I’d been waiting to…

Anime Food Shiritori – Meal #4: Shinseki-don from Lucky Star

The Moyatorium

You might be wondering what in the world shinseki-don is. Perhaps you have heard of its relative, oyako-don.

oyakodonOyako-don from Kakuriyou no Yadomeshi

Well, you can find a detailed explanation at the bottom of the post in my discussion with Astral, but why spoil it for yourself. Go ahead and read the recipe first! (This is why I don’t own a food blog.)

As you might know, I’m more of a baker than a chef. I get frightened by oil popping over the stove (totally not frying anything anytime soon). So take my recipe with a grain of salt.

If you haven’t checked out Astral’s last nigirizushi creation in our Shiritori series, do remember to do so! Unlike me, Astral’s a real chef.

Shinseki-don

Yields: 4-5 servings

Ingredients:

  • 450 g chicken thighs (or roughly 4 pieces)

First Impressions – Mairimashita! Iruma-Kun

Here's another show I had high hopes for when this season rolled around... and from what I've seen in the first episode, it seems my hopes have pretty much paid off! The first episode was very enjoyable, for a variety of reasons... let's talk about it. First off, the episode hits us with an absolutely …
