Mainichi Anime Yume
  We’ve probably all come across someone, whether in real life or online, who was once very enthusiastic about anime only to claim later on that they’ve “burned out” on it. I’ve never experienced anime burnout myself, but I have heard many different reasons for it over the...

Knowing an anime’s story beforehand
Mainichi Anime Yume
  A recent post by Marth brings up the idea of how our perception of an anime adaptation can be greatly influenced by our prior knowledge of the anime’s original source material. This can apply to all forms of media really, such as book-to-movie adaptations or movie retellings of TV series. In...

What kind of blog commenter are you?
Mainichi Anime Yume
  I’m getting close to six years of blogging now and during this time I’ve picked up on the variety of ways people comment on blogs, whether they own a blog themselves or just read them. Naturally the diversity of blog comments and the authors behind them can’t all be categorized nicely,...

Spring ’12 anime thus far
Mainichi Anime Yume
  The spring ’12 anime season started rather late this year, with some series already five episodes in and others only two or three. Because of this, I was debating whether to make my seasonal “first impressions” post or not. But since I ended up watching more shows than I originally...

Anime’s three “building” categories
Mainichi Anime Yume
  An interesting thought occurred to me recently in terms of how anime series are structured. It seems that most anime series focus on “building” one out of three narrative aspects – either building the story, building the characters, or building the world. Some focus on two out of...

Mirai Nikki review
Mainichi Anime Yume
  It’s been a while since I wrote a standard anime review post (I believe the last one was for Steins;Gate in September). Since I can’t think of any theme-based post to write for Mirai Nikki, I opted for a general review of the series When I first started watching Mirai Nikki, I’ll...

Sexuality versus violence in anime
Mainichi Anime Yume
  This topic was a recent entry on AnimeNation’s Ask John column. It begs the question of why American anime fans are often vehemently opposed to moe, fan service, or any other type of anime that sexualizes its characters, while anime that feature extreme violence are rarely opposed and are instead...

  It’s not unusual for people who become anime fans to also become interested in the country that anime comes from – Japan. I’ve seen this interest in some form or other in most of the anime fans I’ve encountered, ranging from mild to extreme. There are people who take up a slight...
