Fanfiction Recs (And Shameless Self-Plugs): Part One — 03/28/2018

Fanfiction Recs (And Shameless Self-Plugs): Part One

For the past six months or so I’ve found myself delving into the world of fanfiction. I probably read too much at this point, and unfortunately in turn it makes me abandon many of the books I’ve purchased and have yet to read. But I’m enjoying myself, and it makes me happy to have something to read before bed every night.

For the most part, I read My Hero Academia ones, and, they generally are focused on a pairing I like, or multiple pairings I like. Same goes with Haikyu!!. The other few I’ve read are No. 6, Yuri!!! on Ice, and Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens. There have been other anime I’ve thought about reading fics for like Akagami no Shirayuki-hime (Snow White with the Red Hair), Noragami, and Yona of the Dawn, but I just haven’t quite yet.

(All fics are on AO3, and all are either rated Teen or General Audiences, as I don’t read anything above those ratings unless under special circumstances. I’m not fond of sexual content in general, so I don’t want to read any of it)

Improvement through Love: Yuri!!! on Ice — 02/17/2018

Improvement through Love: Yuri!!! on Ice

I can’t avoid talking about this show more. With getting the Blu Ray last week and seeing all of the figure skating from the Olympics these past two weeks, this anime has been nagging in the back of my mind, and I’ve realized a lot of things while rewatching it.

Plus with Valentine’s Day being Wednesday, I had to do something in honor of it, even if my initial plan fell through. I’ll be combining the topics of competition (the theme of OWLS this month), and the theme love shown throughout the anime.

Review: No. 6 — 11/25/2017

Review: No. 6

I’m not entirely sure where to start on this one. I guess I’ll begin with how I came to hear of this show. A few different things convinced me to check it out. I have a few mangas that advertised it, so there was that. Then I saw some fanart I’d mistaken for Noragami fanart floating around, so I was a bit curious. Then I heard some people get annoyed with the popularity of Yuri on Ice competing with this for a reason I will soon explain.

A Little Thing About Yuri On Ice — 09/23/2017

A Little Thing About Yuri On Ice

I tried so hard to not talk about this show a lot. It’s overdone, it’s overhyped, I get it. But I love it with all my heart and for a good reason, which I decided I will share with all of you. I by no means think this was the best show in the world, as many people have made it out to be. Just putting that out there, so I don’t seem like someone blinded by the fanbase.
