Things are moving right along. If you haven’t already done so, pick up your copy! There are still 3 more volumesContinue reading “Out Now: Light Unto Another World Volume 7!”

Analysis of Girls Und Panzer’s Opening Scene
Eventually, I’ll be able to post about my new videos in a timely manner on a consistent basis. Apologues again for the lateness. This was a fun video to make, so check it out!
Girls Und Panzer Character Analysis: Anzu Kadotani
Back to Girls Und Panzer videos with my first character analysis video, focusing on one of my favorite characters. There’s a lot more to Oarai’s student council president than meets the eye. She was a fun character to start off what’ll likely be a ton of Girls Und Panzer character analyses with. Check out theContinue reading “Girls Und Panzer Character Analysis: Anzu Kadotani”
An Analysis of the Best Scene in Attack on Titan
Late on the draw once again. Last week’s video focused on the recently (briefly) returned Attack on Titan. I took a closer look at a scene from way back in season 1 which, in my opinion, at least, is the best scene in the show. Check it out!
Superb Visual Storytelling in Girls Und Panzer Das Finale
Well, I appear to have again completely forgotten to post about my latest video in a timely manner. Better late than never, so here it is! This time, I took a close look at a small, but important scene in Girls Und Panzer Das Finale Part 2. Check out the video! (And if you haven’tContinue reading “Superb Visual Storytelling in Girls Und Panzer Das Finale”
Ya Boy Kongming (Paripi Koumei): A Message of Hope for Those Trying to Succeed in Creative Fields
Later than I wanted to be with this; been trying to do too many things this week. My video last week focused on a recent anime that hasn’t gotten as much attention as it should’ve, and specifically on the very positive message it has for anyone struggling to succeed in any creative field. Check itContinue reading “Ya Boy Kongming (Paripi Koumei): A Message of Hope for Those Trying to Succeed in Creative Fields”
Girls Und Panzer: An Exemplar of Sportsmanship (Part 2)
Hey everyone, my latest video, where I continue my look into the sportsmanship in Girls Und Panzer, and its impacts on the characters and that world, is now live! Give it a look! More fun updates (apart from the videos) will be coming soon, G-d willing!
Girls Und Panzer: An Exemplar of Sportsmanship (Part 1)
Hey everyone, I realized it’s been quite a while since I posted here. Been quite busy working on both the new Light Unto Another World volumes (coming very, very soon!), Amaranth Angels, and also spending a fair amount of time over on youtube. I really should’ve been sharing my videos here all along. So, startingContinue reading “Girls Und Panzer: An Exemplar of Sportsmanship (Part 1)”
The Anatomy of a (Semi) Viral Video, and the (Proper) Launch of My YouTube Channel
Well, I can’t say I expected it, but I happily took it. A couple weeks back, after seeing a rather amusing video of a girl struggling to load a tank shell (for context, it was a leaked video from the training in the IDF’s “pilot program”–second attempt–to shoehorn girls into tanks.) It took her overContinue reading “The Anatomy of a (Semi) Viral Video, and the (Proper) Launch of My YouTube Channel”
Post-Convention Thoughts & Takeaways, Part 2 (Or are we at 3 now?)
I don’t recall offhand if I made a post like this after my second convention, but I know I’ve done this once before, and now, after my 3rd convention, I have some more thoughts & observations to share. The convention, Icon, here in Israel, took place about 2 weeks ago now. It was my biggestContinue reading “Post-Convention Thoughts & Takeaways, Part 2 (Or are we at 3 now?)”
