By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting They say “don’t look a gift horse in the mouth,” but let’s be real–we’ve all seen the horses I’m talking about. You know the ones that started by haunting the pages of romance manhwa and have since spread out to other genres?

We do not usually post political content here at The Anime View, but this is important to understand. The S.686 bill (also called the RESTRICT act) is far more restrictive than many realize.

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
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
