I’m still here and doing reviews

So, you'll notice that the site has been barren of new content as of late. To that... Yeah, I have no excuse. I kind of got addicted to FFXIV, DnD, and back into writing fanfiction, so I kind of skipped one episode, which turned into two, which turned into entire arcs.  Plus, I'm not entirely … Continue reading I’m still here and doing reviews

Kvasir’s Recommendations: Copyright, Content ID, Fair Use, and Youtube

There's a youtuber who makes great analysis videos on a lot of anime I like on the channel Nearly On Red. Now, while I don't know the ins and outs of youtube, I found it strange that one of his videos was taken down only for him to personally explain it. So if you wanted … Continue reading Kvasir’s Recommendations: Copyright, Content ID, Fair Use, and Youtube

Phantasms and Cosmic Knowledge (Bloodborne Lore)

Cross-posting from other blog.

Bloodborne and I have a bit of a unique relationship, wherein I have become rather intrigued by the whole plot and the game refuses to give me straight answers without the song and dance of me lore-diving and trying to piece it together with critical thinking—which is akin to doing a jigsaw puzzle blindfolded while fending off an army of tentacles.

The gist of the plot of Bloodborne is that humans attempting to evolve to the level of the Great Ones have caused a level of ‘oh crap, we’re all going to die’ that you rarely see in a Victorian-era setting. So much that the good ending has you being under the care of a porcelain doll who is the closest thing to human comfort you’ll get as you splatter the street with blood and go mad. The latter is what I particularly want to touch on…

The Origins of the Pyromancy Flame (Dark Souls Lore)

Cross-posting my Dark Souls’ theory.

I’m a bit of an oddball and need to know how things work from a lore perspective when it comes to media I like, despite not being exceedingly scientific in nature. Like, in the case of Dark Souls, we have Pyromancies—a form of magic that uses an item called a Pyromancy Flame in order to conjure fire-based.  But, while the game goes into details on the Witch of Izalith being the “Godmother of Pyromancy,” it never really explains where the pyromancy flames you can use come from.

I personally believe that the pyromancy flame is the internal fire that burns within Demons, a species within the series linked to Flame of Chaos, and that pyromancers have learned how to harness, channel, and split the flame so that they can wield it for themselves. I’ll be explaining why I think that and support that…

Spectacle and Service — Little Witch Academia and the purpose of magic

diana cavendish floating teapot little witch academia episode 7, little witch academia episode 7 diana cavendish, diana cavendish little witch academia episode 7

How useful is floating a teapot in the air to serve hot tea?

Although both tea and wine have tannins — in varying amounts depending on steep time and prior to separating grape juice from the stems and skins in the case of wine — the former hardly needs to be aerated. Height is not necessary in the pour. And even if it was, a human could do the same with an equal amount of training.

What is the exact purpose of Diana Cavendish floating her teapot over to her teacher other than to pass her exam? Does she offer a service that couldn’t be provided by human hands?

No, she does not. The action is essentially useless.

Kakumeiki Valvrave 2nd Season (Review)

Ohh…. this one. I had a love-hate relationship with this anime because I loved the concept and the characters. In fact, if not for the… unpleasantness with Shouko and Iori that summed up the last few episodes, I would have given it a pretty decent rating myself.

JustAnime Times

Here we are with the second season to Kakumeiki Valvrave. When I watched the first season to this anime I was so excited to watch the second season. Well let me tell you that it didn’t disappoint not one bit. This second season aired in 2013 and I stumbled upon this series a year later I think? It’s hard to keep track cause I’ve watched so much anime lol. Haruto and the gang are still fighting Dorssia force, and not to mention they have a lot of unanswered questions.

There still is L-Elf’s past along with his fellow soldiers’ past, and the mysterious girl Liselotte and her fate still seems to be unknown. Oh we also can’t forget the romance and all of Haruto’s relationships. Wait relationships? Why so surprised every story has to have a little romance. Especially if there is a love triangle. Or some anime can have there lovers…
