Where do I begin with this update? Well, this week has been something else. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one feeling it but the majority of us are working hard as hell to remain positive. 2020 has been knocking us around like a pinball for the last five months and it seems every time we turn around, something else happens. None of us were prepared for this, but throughout these last five months many of us have grown to adapt to this ‘new normal’ as everyone is calling it. With that in mind we’ve decided to change gears a little bit in terms of content, so here we go!
D&A Breakdown: Is Danmachi Considered an Isekai?
Danmachi has always been one of our favorite anime titles, but lately there’s been a lot of debate on whether or not it can be considered an isekai. So we’ll be doing some digging, comparing, and contrasting on the type of elements that you’d find in your run-of-the-mill isekai, and see if they match up with the story found in Danmachi.
Anime Love & Hip-Hop: The Remix
One of our favorite posts that we’ve done was talk about the role that Hip-Hop played in the world of anime, as well as its influence on Japanese Culture. They may seem different from the outside looking in, but both of these cultures have a lot more in common than you might think.
Then & Now: How Toonami Changed Our Lives
Growing up in the 90’s, fan’s remember when the first advertisement for this legendary block came about. Now in a time where we’re facing civil unrest and racial injustice against African-Americans, we recap how Toonami shaped the world of anime and action cartoons, as well as bring fans together from all walks of life.
So starting next week! We’ll be trying out a new format where we’ll be doing posts on three major topics of discussion; which will also include our upcoming Manga of the Week pick, and Throwback Thursday pick. (No, we haven’t forgotten about that.)
That’s all for now, so until next week, have a safe and Happy Labor Day! 🙂
