  • My Anime 3×3, or Celebrating a Year of the Otaku Exhibition

    When I began this blog, I didn’t think it was going to last. A month or two, three at the most. I have a tendency of creating big, ambitious plans that I fail to follow through on. Making a blog where I organize all my weird thoughts about anime and games was a neat idea, […]

  • A Note About the Otaku Exhibition’s Posts

    We have arrived at the one year anniversary of the Otaku Exhibition. For those of you who weren’t counting, that was 110 posts, 169,000 words, and more garbage takes than I can count.

    This notification will not be a surprise to you if you’ve read my review on Mushoku Tensei, in which my first impressions were mostly positive. The first couple of episodes are mostly harmless, though it soon become an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, but with the predator as the hero. After I […]
