Anime Review: Karen Senki


When I talk about Liberation, I usually mean freedom that comes from a collective process. In order to be free, a group of people must rise together under a unifying cause. However, there are instances in liberalism and liberal feminism where individuality is more emphasized: an individual’s liberation, sort of speak. That seems to be the kind of liberation Karen goes through in this CG animated short series.

I don’t particularly agree with individualism as a means for liberation, but I did enjoy this series for how they executed the post-apocalyptic premise along with very obvious inspirations from other great minds (I’ll get to those later). And if there’s one thing that Crunchyroll’s Sailor Bee and I have in common, it’s that we both adore Karen!

Funny Moments in Fall 2014 Anime


The end of the Fall 2014 season, and the year, is upon us. And since many of my simulcasts have wrapped up, it’s time to once again share some of this season’s funny moments. The following 12 moments are comprised of roughly 20 anime series I have watched, which don’t even make up half of what aired!

This season, I am doing things a little differently by including a theme for the season. Fall 2014’s theme is Stars and Flowers, courtesy of this season’s Yuki Yuna is a Hero. The moments shown here, in my opinion, reflect this theme.

These are the funny moments (but not necessarily the funniest moments) of Fall 2014 anime. You can find all of these titles on Crunchyroll.

As always, there will be SPOILERS. Enjoy!

My Fall 2014 Crunchyroll Simulcasts


Hey everyone!

Taking a quick break from my studies to finalize my simulcasts for this anime season. Since then, I’ve added about 20 things to my list, but I’m choosing to highlight only 10 of them. As always, my lists tend to be quite eclectic, and don’t always reflect the most popular things.

As an aside, I will be getting back to full anime reviews on a later date, but my next one might take some time, as it will be the 50th anime-specific review I have on this blog; and I will be doing something a little special for that one.

You can watch legally and for free* on Crunchyroll! They are in order by when they come out weekly (PDT).
