The Wandering Witch Witnesses the Ascendance of a Bookworm!
Welcome, all, again. A new viewing season is upon us, with generous offerings in a number of genres. Today's topic, Ascendance of a Bookworm, is an isekai story focusing much more strongly than usual upon the protagonist's adjustments to the mundane elements of her new existence (although her sudden youth probably precludes any more assertive role).

The Wandering Witch Draws Down on Cowboy Bebop

The Wandering Witch Draws Down on Cowboy Bebop
Welcome, all, again. Today we look back on anime's own gateway drug, Cowboy Bebop. As you have no doubt already heard, Netflix is again taunting the gods of anime by producing a live-action desecration--excuse me, adaptation--of this beloved anime series. And only 2 years after thoroughly mutilating Death Note! Why?

The Wandering Witch Confronts Mongol Invasion in Angolmois
Welcome, all, again. As I'm slowly getting a handle on the new season's shows, I can't help but notice how similar many storylines seem: the plots; the settings; even the characters. Luckily for us, some artists just refuse to conform! Today's discussion will focus upon Angolmois: Record of Mongol Invasion, a show that reminds me of last season's stunner Golden Kamuy.

The Oxymoron of American J-Rock: A Closer Look at What Makes J-Pop and J-Rock Japanese

The Oxymoron of American J-Rock: A Closer Look at What Makes J-Pop and J-Rock Japanese
What the heck is American J-Rock? Better question: Do you know what J-Rock, or J-Pop for that matter, really means? While you probably think you have an answer, pinning down a definition can get a little messy. However, it’s key to understanding the popularity of J-Rock and J-Pop outside of Japan, and the growing movement in the West for a home-brewed version of this music.
