Are the Relationships in Scum’s Wish Really So Bad?

I recently discovered Scum's Wish from an article describing the relationship between Mugi and Hanabi as abusive. While the anime begins with Mugi and Hanabi both in love with other people and only using each other to satisfy their physical desires, is there really anything inherently wrong with this? People have casual relationships all the time. Not all relationships are built around love. Not only that, but, I think that love is a feeling that can grow over time. Hanabi and Mugi may not be in love just yet; but that doesn't mean they won't fall in love by the end of the anime or manga. There has been much foreshadowing already hinting at this possibility. Could Hanabi and Mugi ever fall in love or have a happy ending? Here are some clues that hint that they may be falling for e

Fuuka Anime Review

Fuuka is a relatively new anime that is part of Crunchyroll's Winter Simulcast lineup. You can watch Fuuka for free on Crunchyroll here. Fuuka is very similar to other band slice of life anime such as Beck Mongolian Chop Squad or Nana. If you like either of these anime, I think you'll also enjoy Fuuka. Check out my "Early Review" for episodes 1 through 4 of Fuuka below, and catch Episode 5 on Crunchyroll Friday at 11:00am EST. Title: Fuuka Genre: Slice of Life, Romance, Drama Length: 12 Episodes (so far only 4 have aired). Related Media: Fuuka is a sequel to another anime called Suzuka. Fuuka is actually the daughter of one of the main characters in Suzuka. Both Fuuka and Suzuka also have manga adaptations, and Fuuka's manga is currently still running with new material.

Hatsukoi Monster Anime Review: First Love Monster

Title: Hatsukoi Monster Alternate Title: First Love Monster Genre: Romance / Comedy / Slice of Life / Shoujo Length: 12 Episodes + OVA Release Date: 2016 Where to Watch: Crunchyroll Based on: Hatsukoi Monster manga by Akira Hiyoshimaru (which is still ongoing at time of this review). You can purchase the first 3 volumes (at time of this review) on Amazon in English: Geeky:  2/5 - No action here, but a lot of comedy. It's also pretty heavy on romance though, so if Rom-coms aren't your thing, I wouldn't recommend this one. Sweetie:  3/5 - Kaho's character is perhaps the worst defined within this series and the most boring, despite being the main character, and a female lead who we witness the story through. Her relationship also never grows nor do the charact

Lufia 2 Rise of the Sinistrals Retro SNES JRPG Game Review

Title: Lufia 2 Rise of the Sinistrals Genre: RPG Publisher: Natsume Platform: SNES Release Date: 1996 Geeky:  Sweetie:  Overall Score: 60/80 75% C “Good Game For Girls” Concept: 9/10 This review is for the 2nd game in the Lufia series. Although, chronologically, the events in this game take place before the events in Lufia & the Fortress of Doom. Which we reviewed by the way over here in our Lufia and the Fortress of Doom Review. The 2nd game improved upon many aspects of the original including some pacing issues with the story and enhanced graphics, more challenging puzzles to solve, and no more random encounters. The story in Lufia 2 Rise of the Sinistrals takes you back to playing as Maxim and the original heroes who helped defeat the sinistrals as shown briefly in the prolo
