Oh God, what an episode this was. I don’t even know where to begin with it, really.
First off, I guess I’ll say that while I am a little surprised that Shouta was a well, shota…that does not change my love for Lucoa at all. I’m not usually a fan of BBWs, but her personality coupled with the lore surrounding her as Quetzalcoatl, the Aztec feathered serpent ex-goddess is probably why I’m so endeared toward her.
The only thing that makes me mad about her relationship with Shouta is that that’s not me in his shoes LOL. 😛
As for Kanna x Saikawa…oh my fucking God, if ever there was a ship of the season, there it is. Tohru x Kobayashi-san is great and wholesomely real and I support it all the way, Fafnir x Kobayashi’s otaku co-worker/drinking buddy is also a treasure.
But KannaRiko…I don’t even know. My heart just exploded when Kanna sat in her lap, when Riko said she wanted to marry her, and then when Kanna pinned her down…fuuuuuuuuuck.
And I think even though they’re kids, its perfectly natural for them to understand their feelings for each other and know what they want. Their relationship is so great, I absolutely love it aaaaaaah.
I just love how this show naturalizes homosexual and supernatural/interspecies relationships like its nothing. It’s wonderful, truly wonderful. Sasuga KyoAni.
I’m now a few episodes behind, but God I’m loving this show so much more than I thought I would. I enjoyed the OVAs, but felt they were lacking in story quality. GREAT animation though, as expected of Trigger always.
The TV series as of yet, does not have ANY of those problems. And while I’m sure my favorite by default is probably Amanda or Diana, these girls are all way too good for me to choose.
I’m 100 percent on board with Diana x Akko, and have been since the beginning. ❤
Some fans requested I cover this show despite it not being necessary due to it being pretty popular. Still, I did say it’s on my watch list so I suppose I’ll talk about it weekly…or at least try.
NOTE: This post was written by someone who saw the pilot OVA and The Enchanted Parade beforehand. While it is absolutely not necessary to see the OVAs before the show it does help give newcomers a glimpse of what to expect. Plus they’re fun to watch.

Goddammit. I can’t believe its over. Except that its not over, because it was only Part 3 of 8. And who knows if JoJolion will even be the end at this point. Araki, you magnificent bastard.
For the past few months, Stardust Crusaders was the show I could look forward to watching a little bit of almost every single day or week. In the span of 48 episodes, I could look forward to Stands of all shapes and sizes, more of the antics of Polnareff who I adore so much, more of Joseph freaking out and being a total spaz, more of Avdol being smug and wise about everything in an honest manner, more of Jotaro keeping his cool, and more of Kakyoin being a lovable smartass. And Iggy being simultaneously the most useful and useless mutt of all time.
Then there was DIO with his charisma…UNFFFFFFFF. That is always a joy to watch/read, whether its in Part 1 or in Part 3. The means by which he is experienced matters not. And the final battle with him, the End of ZA WARUDO, did not disappoint.
All of these are on my list, but thank you for potentially giving me a list as to which ones I should watch first/in what order when I finally start seeing more anime non-serial/standalone films. I’ll probably do Redline first but we’ll see.
Great article fam!
Writing about sakuga in top tier anime movies is a little bit different than writing about it in TV series. Due to the deadlines and nature of a weekly TV series, they are generally full of stark highs and lows, making it really easy to pick out the best stuff. Movies, on the other hand, with their more dedicated staff, longer timeline, and more reasonable budgets, are usually much more visually consistent, making that a little harder sometimes. Fluidity can no longer really be the top criteria because if it was, you would just have a 20 way tie for first place. And what about great looking movies that aren’t consistent? Things like The Sacred Star of Milos? It has incrediblyhighhighs that are definitely worthy of note, but is also much more like a TV series, in that it has plenty of moments where you’re just staring at a panning still. So should that…

Hi there! The name’s Barty! This is a long dormant blog (until today) dedicated to posting my personal analyses, musings, theories, speculations, ideas, inspirations, headcanons, opinions, possible reviews, and conversation-starters regarding my favorite works of media, primarily of a Japanese and/or cinematic origin. I will also frequently reblog posts from other blogs that I greatly enjoyed reading with my response to them attached, as I have been doing for some time now.
PapiCona should’ve won, but I guess more people watched Izetta than Flip Flappers. Oh well, I like both ships, so I’m not going to complain too much.
For as much as I love Yohane, Riko and Mari are still my favorites above her, so I’m glad they won. 😛
Another potential contender in the 2017 awards, Riko Saikawa.
And with that another enjoyable Yuri Anime Awards ceremony has come to a close. Thanks again to both and new fans for showing their support for their favorite gals and couples. Let’s find out who were the victors.

Giving it all to Flip Flappers. And making me choose between Izetta and Yohane. Wow man, that fucking hurts. I don’t know if I can vote for that one.
A sneak peek at who will be part of the 2017 awards.
WARNING! The following award ceremony will contain massive spoilers for many anime and games that aired/were localized in 2016
It’s that time again Nation. Well, it would have been sooner were it not for other stuff that took a lot of my time. In any case let us finally drink in the magical goodness that is the gift of yuri. As usual let us give a big round of applause to all the ladies who gave their all in showing the world how beautiful love between two or more women can be in 2016. This year I will try something a bit different with the “Best Moment” category. Since we’ve had A LOT of confessions it will be changed to the “Best Confession”. There will also be some other bonus categories. Of course the finals of the 2016…
