Mate, this is a lovely tribute. I know you’re still processing your feelings, but I hope this was in some ways cathartic. And you being encouraged to write by Zac’s work, and producing quality writing such as this, is as good an example as any of the man’s influence. And hopefully ensures his legacy is sustained by Read more

I haven’t yet seen the series (intend to), but this was a thorough and enticing dissection of the series’ various facets. Great work and look forward to reading whatever you put out next!

Hey Ish, hope you’re doing okay. Why did you leave? Any plans on returning?

If not, good luck and best wishes.

Mate, that last part on the communal viewing, and the parallels the core themes of Konosuba, was a genuinely great interweaving of ideas and experience. Very Ebert of you.

Sorry, using this to seeing if I’ve been greyed or whatever . If this still works, great; if not, well, it’s been a largely fun ride everyone.

Absolutely. I would never claim that Kotaku is perfect, because people are fallible, but I’d rather take the odd misstep as part and parcel of the essentially great and rigorous work they do. And yes, Kotaku’s broader perspective beyond just the games (as you say, it’s very much a lens) sets it apart.

Heather, this is my favourite review of yours in a while out of consistently great articles; it’s wonderful and insightful. Tim, I’m only twenty-odd minutes into the hour, but it’s typically playfully elegant and soothing to listen to. Read more

This is a well-wrought review and the playfulness of your language is as invigorating as the film apparently is. I’m really intrigued by The Burnish, and now lament that I won’t be able to see that thematic melding in action for who knows how long? Read more

Yeah, the objectification without agency and nuance is very much a defining aspect of the trope. And you rightly say, they act as a representation of the ideal, and as characters are merely vessels for projection. And it’s why I don’t like it either. But as with most tropes, the principle of it does have a place if Read more

Like this review. Shame that it’s not promising, because the art looked pretty good.  Read more

I liked this review a lot. Although most of you broadly highlighted the same strengths and “shape” of the anime (strong first half, weak middle quarter, excellent finish), your approaches to the various facets, and what appealed to you individually, felt unique even when talking about the same elements.

My dad remembers, for one, having watched Thunderbirds in the 60s. He passed that interest on to my brother and I when we were young. Honestly, the whole production is so damn impressive.

That was an excellent punchline, Kinksy.

I’ve long thought about trying the Ys series. Are you replaying Ys VI or working your way through the series for the first time? Read more

Hey, just wanted to say that I read this. There were some relatable character traits you’ve noted here. I don’t really feel like talking about my experiences in detail and also I’m not really far enough in the Monogatari series to talk about the characters in an informed manner. Read more

Honestly, I never understood how to play Yugioh because I had cards, but was going off of the anime, because I never had a rulebook. And the anime is random as fuck sometimes.
