A Ketchup Post

In elementary school, I had a teacher who got out a bottle of ketchup each time we had a free period to “catch up” on schoolwork. I guess that pun stuck in my brain pretty well because I thought I’d use it as the basis for this post. The past few months have been pretty busy in good and bad ways, so in order to review all the things I’ve watched recently but don’t have enough time or energy to publish separately, I’m combining mini reviews together to create one big recap. Let’s get started!

Quotorium Reviews: Into the Spider-Verse

A rare non-anime review appears! It’s starting to be crunch time for all the reviews I want to get out there, and although other things will be on their way, I just saw Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and it got me so excited that I had to throw my schedule out the window to talk about it. Without further ado, let’s dig into this new addition to the Spider-Man franchise!  Continue reading “Quotorium Reviews: Into the Spider-Verse”

Quotorium Reviews: Voltron S8 and Some Reflections

And with that, Voltron has officially wrapped up! It’s hard to believe that it’s only been 2 years. I aim to use this review as a way to process, vent, and figure out what the final season of Voltron means for the series. There’s a lot to cover so let’s get started! Just a warning: this review will be spoiler-heavy since this was the concluding season and there’s a lot to discuss!

Quotorium Reviews: Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid

After hearing so much about Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, I finally got the chance to properly enjoy it!  While this show is my second Year of Anime entry, I still watched it for September anyway, just because I couldn’t wait any longer. This show was an absolute pleasure to watch so let’s get to it! Continue reading “Quotorium Reviews: Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid”

Quotorium Reviews: Free! Dive to the Future (and Some Analysis Too)

Would you look at that, an in-depth look at a recent show! I have followed the Free! franchise since the beginning and had some thoughts and opinions on its most recent third season, Dive to the Future. This post is going to be part review, part analysis -a reviewlysis- to help me figure out the latest that Free! has to offer. That being said, spoiler warning, if there are even any spoilers for a sports anime!

Quotorium Reviews: Mob Psycho 100

Welcome back! This is my first official entry on my 2018/19 Year of Anime lineup and what a way to kick it off with a bang. I’m so pleased that I finally got the chance to sit down and watch Mob Psycho 100 and can now talk about it! Practice makes perfect, so I hope that this review helps my writing a bit. Without further ado, onto the review!

A Love Letter to Hetalia

Switching things up this week with a casual chat looking at one of the more well-loved anime out there: Hetalia! I wanted to use this post to just explore how this show is approached, what I think about it, and what we can get from the show in general. Let’s get a discussion going!

Quotorium Reviews: Voltron S7

It has been a while since Voltron S7 aired, and unlike last season’s review, I needed a ton of time to process exactly what happened. The overall response to S7 has been extremely divisive and it was very difficult for me to sit down and rationalize my opinions on the season, because as much as this is a review, it is also ultimately an opinion. I hope that this review sheds light on some parts of Voltron not everyone acknowledges or maybe even clears up some issues regarding its response. I will warn you that this review is a bit more spoiler-heavy than usual, since there was just so much to say. Alright: onto the review!

Sports Anime Breakdown: Kuroko no Basuke and Haikyuu!!

Over the past few months we’ve seen a lot of major sports events come and go such as the World Cup and the Pyeongchang Olympics, both of which saw some really incredible results! As I watched these events, I started to wonder how sports are treated in anime. What makes it tick? How does each show differ? Let’s find out! This post has been a long time in the making and will definitely result in more articles like it focusing on other sports anime, but for now I want to look at two giants of the genre: Kuroko no Basuke and Haikyuu!!

Quotorium Reviews: Nichijou

Catching myself up on my own anime list right now and I just finished watching Nichijou! While it isn’t anything new, I had a blast watching this show and wanted to just toss some ideas around and process it in a review. Without further ado, let’s look at my two cents on this modern classic.
