I'm halfway through Monster. It's great, but I'm a bit worried about it dragging on. It feels like the story could have been wrapped up already. But there's probably more to it than what I know at...

I'll be checking out Ore Monogatari once it's done or almost done airing.

I started Monster the other day and I'm loving it so far. Some of the commentary is a bit heavy-handed*, but that's a minor...

Great to hear. I'm really hoping for a third season.

A lot of the manga fans hated both seasons, from what I understand. I enjoyed the adaptation, but I concede that the manga is better in most, if not all, respects.

I plan to read TG re: eventually,...

What are you guys watching these days?

I'm not watching any Spring shows, but I'm watching Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun from last season. It's a solid comedy.

That's a pretty cringe worthy Facebook post, and the new song is kinda boring, yeah. But if he and this Edith person release an album, I'll still check it out.

Takamichi's illustrations are full of life.

I'm hyped because I've heard such good things about the manga. Haven't read it myself, though. Are you more or less up to date with it, Seb?

I'm ten episodes into Nana and it's great so far. Junko is hilarious.

It was supposed to be, yeah. I'm not sure what's going on. Maybe (hopefully) just a delay.

I'll get around to watching Death Note eventually, probably.

Nana is up next for me.

I cheered when I saw that on ANN. Not because I'll actually buy it, but because I'm glad it's getting some notice.

A few days ago I decided to give Your Lie in April another go, after having dropped it way back in October. This time around, I'm hooked. There's no question that Your Lie in April is overdramatic,...

Oh nice. That's good to know.

I mean that there are a lot of big reveals, which (imo) lose their impact once you know about them. For example, Roy did not actually kill Ross, philosopher's stones...

Since we're talking about long shounen series, I've heard really good things about Hunter x Hunter (2011). It's 148 episodes though, which is a bit daunting.


I haven't seen the original, so I'm...

I just finished Brotherhood. Here are some scattered thoughts:

(1) Brotherhood is a roller-coaster. It's thrilling, engaging, and enjoyable, despite all of its flaws.

(2) The whole final arc is...

This will be my last post for now, since I got an infraction—presumably for allowing myself to be pulled into the battle of passive aggression. I will take solace in the fact that, surely, those who...

I laughed when I read these because I've never been on reddit or any MRA website. (Outside of following the rare link.) I know you guys would love me to be an MRA, but I can't live up to your...

A. Are you defining sexism in that way, or is that a result? If the former then I'd question the usefulness of the term, if the latter I'd require proof that's rooted in biology (since your assertion...

So then, in your view, "We want to end misogyny as as endemic feature of our socioeconomic reality." follows logically from "We want wage equality." Is that fair to say?


We were specifically...

It matters to me, on several levels. First, the cause determines the enemy. If the cause is employer discrimination, we go after employers. If the cause is our economic system, then we go after our...
