[Theory] Villains Are Destined to Die: I Think It’s a Coma (Spoilers)

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting I tend to dislike “it’s a coma” theories when I read them because the idea of everything being a dream or part of a coma is overused and clichéd. However, I can’t say that these types of theories don’t have merit. I mean, a cliché becomes one for a reason, right? And, for the first time (I think) in … Continue reading [Theory] Villains Are Destined to Die: I Think It’s a Coma (Spoilers)

[Game Review] Blanc: Two-Player Fun

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting Blanc, on the Nintendo Switch, is a wonderful cozy game for a night-in playing with friends or a loved one. By playing with another, you can enjoy the full game in about 2 to 3 hours as either the deer-fawn or wolf-pup (or even switching between the two). I recommend that you play with another person because the controls … Continue reading [Game Review] Blanc: Two-Player Fun

[Analysis] The Precious Sister of The Villainous Grand Duke: The Not Incest, Incest Romance

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting Many, many years ago someone asked me if I shipped Kaname and Yuuki from Vampire Knight and I answered with a hard no–I also didn’t ship the other main pairing, Yuuki and Zero, despite both of them being canonized in the series. My reasoning is simple–it’s because both pairings are incestuous to some degree. Kaname is Yuuki’s ancestor/brother while … Continue reading [Analysis] The Precious Sister of The Villainous Grand Duke: The Not Incest, Incest Romance

[Analysis] Pearl Appreciation (Steven Universe)

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting I must admit that when Steven Universe (SU) was airing, I wasn’t a fan of the show. However, I did watch the series at random intervals due to my friend group being largely obsessed with it. As many friends moved on from the series, I continued to check back in because of my favorite character from the show, Pearl. … Continue reading [Analysis] Pearl Appreciation (Steven Universe)

[Analysis] Happy Hearts & Matching Outfits: A Family Unit

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate the season of love than by talking about one of my favorite romantic tropes in comics–matching outfits. It’s something I’ve discussed a few times or mentioned briefly, like in my appreciation of Smurf’s World’s costuming for a special dinner, but this trope extends beyond just romance. … Continue reading [Analysis] Happy Hearts & Matching Outfits: A Family Unit

[Analysis] Natsume Yuujinchou: A Place for Yokai in the Modern World

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting Note: Hello, Everyone! So, last summer I took a special course on anime and Japanese culture. During that course, I completed a project discussing Japan’s cultural background regarding spiritual beliefs (Shintoism, yokai, etc.) and how these beliefs and myths influence animation and other entertainment media in Japan. For part of the project, I discussed how the mythos lives on … Continue reading [Analysis] Natsume Yuujinchou: A Place for Yokai in the Modern World

[Recommended Manga / Review] Villainess Level 99 ~I may be the Hidden Boss, but I’m not the Demon Lord~

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting Like many other “I reincarnated into an otome game as the villainess” stories, Villainess Level 99 features a main character, Eumiella Dolkness, who has very little intent of following the main plot. One nice difference, however, is that she doesn’t have to actively fight against fate to do this.  As the hidden boss, Eumiella needs only to avoid becoming … Continue reading [Recommended Manga / Review] Villainess Level 99 ~I may be the Hidden Boss, but I’m not the Demon Lord~

[Movie Review & Spoilers] GOT TO LOVE SLIMES! “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime the Movie: Scarlet Bond”

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting Reincarnation has been a popular premise in anime and manga (generally fiction as a whole) for some time, allowing characters to come back from death in a new form and allowing them/us to explore a different version of life in another world or the same one from a new perspective.  That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is … Continue reading [Movie Review & Spoilers] GOT TO LOVE SLIMES! “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime the Movie: Scarlet Bond”

[Recommended Read / Manhwa Review] Dungeon Break With A Female Lead: I Stole the Number One Ranker’s Soul

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting I’ve been reading a lot of dungeon break comics lately, and I’m really enjoying the genre in manhwas. The art style, which emphasizes clean lines, lighting, and shadows, is reminiscent of Jang-Sung Rak’s work in Solo Leveling. The majority of these comics focus primarily on action, with romance taking a back seat, if it appears at all. However, I … Continue reading [Recommended Read / Manhwa Review] Dungeon Break With A Female Lead: I Stole the Number One Ranker’s Soul
