5 lies anime taught me

“No matter what Yu-Gi-Oh tries to push, believing in yourself isn’t enough. Beg pardon, Inuyasha, but you can’t just swing Tessaiga around like a drunken baseball player. Hey, Naruto, sometimes you have to do more than say ‘believe it’ and punch.”

Armada (2015)

“Zack comes off as a nerd who won’t shut up for five minutes so the plot can progress. Mind you, this didn’t stop me from liking the book, but then again, I know I would do the exact same thing.”

Why Batman will never be black

“But it is kind of sad that, even in an Elseworlds title, Bruce Wayne will always have WASP features when, in many ways, Batman would make a lot of sense as a black man.”

Pretty Deadly

“Since Image Comics recently announced the production of a second arc, I made it a point to give it a try. The verdict? I have no idea how to feel. My brain is screaming ‘status code: 400’.”

Ready Player One (2011)

“Set in the not-so-distant future of 2044, the plot follows 18-year-old Wade Watts AKA Parzival, as he spends his days hunting for an Easter egg in his favorite video game. Sounds kind of uneventful, doesn’t it? Or at least, it sounds like my Saturday afternoons, and therefore not exactly novel-worthy material, but the book is surprisingly awesome and realistic.”
