Diabolik Lovers: Episode 4 – Full Moon of Absurdity

Confounded. That is what I’m feeling right about now. Utterly and truly bloody confounded that people watch this anime, or play the video games, and derive some semblance of pleasure out of it.

Summer 2018 Anime Watchlist!

Ah, it’s that splendid time of year again, where one season of poor to mediocre to fantastic shows comes to an end, so another season can begin anew. While I enjoyed a few serials over the Spring, most of what I ended up watching fell short in some ways. But I will admit that a…
