To “lose” something is such a powerful, yet diverse word when it comes to what it means to different people. It’s a word that can mean both a misplacement of something important to us and a heartbreaking parting with someone we know. A word that can mean both a failure to achieve a personal goal and also one of misguidance and confusion. It’s hard to pin down on what “losing” can mean to any individual at any given time. Even further still, it’s complicated to understand how different individuals can cope with each scenario of “loss” regarding its various meanings. Sometimes to “lose” is something we don’t focus on too much, yet at other times, it can be devastating to the point where it feels soul-crushing and unable to be overcome.Continue reading

I feel like we say this fairly often, but the Summer 2019 season has surprised us with a lot of good good stuff to watch. There’s everything in here you could possibly want. Cute, sincere romance-centric shows? Got ’em. Good dumb shounen fun? It’s in here. High school idiots? Oh buddy, do we ever. Trash? I mean, yeah, it’s here, too.
Join two dinguses and a dying man to discuss things in this episode such as our new hot-blooded shounen series block (shounen hype mileage may vary), more “wow, I didn’t know this show existed”‘s than you can shake a stick at, discussing “the greatest show ever made” brought to you by trains, and previewing “Rush Hour if Jackie Chan was an elf.”

Welcome to our first Campfire Cast! These are going to be an offshoot of our current suite of stuff where we talk about pretty much anything and everything anime and manga-adjacent that we’ve been into recently or recent events in the industry.
In this one, we talk about shounen manga and anime series, some Japanese originated video games, and even share how we all got into anime to begin with and why. Also, there’s some random discussion about the English alphabet, but that’s just par for the course for us.
