Shonen Flop Recommends #9: Inuyasha

Oct 19, 2020

InuYasha | Netflix

So, last episode we covered Bone Collection, which is absolute trash. However, aspects of the manga (the constant gags, the romance plot, a boy and a girl as the two protagonists, frequently pulling from Japanese culture and mythology) reminded me of a way better series: Inuyasha. 

The main plot follows Kagome, a young...

TT Poll #206: Shaman King

In our upcoming episode, we will be discussing Bone Collection. Not to spoil the episode but we don’t like it.

Watch Kaguya-Sama: Love Is War Sub | Comedy, Romance, Slice of Life Anime | Funimation

One of the themes that SWOT, the subject of our latest episode, tried to play around with was romance in a highschool setting. Its questionable attempt might be making you, the reader, wonder how an anime/manga can do the job properly. Look no further than Kaguya-sama: Love Is War aka Kaguya Wants to Be Confessed To
