Breaking The Narrative Episode 84: Aim for the Top! A Review of Megalo Box!

Something I’ve been noticing this season of anime is a lot of anime coming out that show the true nature of men and masculinity. Either through what we’ve gone over with emotion in Souten No Ken Regenesis, or with the nature of a show I plan on covering later called Devil’s Line, which not only tackles demonization and isolation, but the loneliness that occurs from it.…

Breaking an Opinion Episode 2: Women Just Can’t Handle the Magma!

Good day to all of you. Now that seems like a very specific title, doesn’t it? Well, that’s because it is. What do I mean by the “Magma”? I’m talking about an aspect of men and their emotions that has surfaced in multiple cultures over the years.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 83 : Can A Bloodsoaked Demon Shed Tears? Fist of the Blue Sky: ReGenesis!

I was going to do a tear apart of AniFem’s review of this new release in what I’ll effectively call the ‘Fist of‘ franchise, even if it only consists of Fist of the North Star and Fist of the Blue Sky, essentially. However considering the overall feeling and legacy this cult classic property holds, I think I’ll do something that I bet AniFem refuses to do – Give this series a two episode cover.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 82: The legend that inspired two countries of boys, Shotaro Ishinomori

This time around I have decided to cover another creator who has inspired several generations of young boys and men with a strong example of honorable and self-sacrificing men. If Osamu Tezuka is Japan’s equivalent to Walt Disney then today’s subject, Shotaro Ishinomori, is their Stan Lee! …

Breaking the Narrative Episode 81: No @Redlianak, You Don’t Understand Comedy!

Well if you’ve  followed us for a while then you may be more than familiar with our differences with this particular ‘nice’ feminist. However those differences aren’t going to be what we discuss today. Today we discuss something of hers our friendly neighborhood doge has read.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 80: Introspection and Self-Reflection. Are We Doing a Good Job?

I’m sure many here have not only seen certain developments that been going for some time in relation to internet culture and interaction with what Raging Golden Eagle has called ‘meatspace.’ In fact I do kind of enjoy his approach to the subject of how society is evolving via ‘netspace’ interactions.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 0079: Variations and Evolution of Masculine Rivalry! Conflict Between Men Can Be Constructive!

I first apologize for the obvious Universal Century joke in the title of this article, but I thought it was neat correlation considering what I’m covering this week. Yes, I’m going to be covering male rivalry and how it can be both destructive and constructive.…

Breaking the Narrative 78: Stellar Battles of Dropping the Ball! How the Lucas Star Wars Movies Show Male Struggles and How Disney Fails.

Everyone here knows my gaming and video game history but one thing I don’t go too much into unless asked is my own enjoyment of the Star Wars franchise.  I’ve  been a fan of it ever since first watching the original trilogy on VHS with my father as a child during one of the weekends he had me.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 77: I Live Free Under My Flag! A Character Study of Captain Phantom F. Harlock!

When I started writing for the Honey Badgers about 2 years ago I  had discussed depictions of men in anime, namely because of some of my own participation in anime geekdom. Now I think its time I do something I’ve done before with Samus Aran but this time with one of my favorite fictional characters ever – Captain Phantom F.

Breaking the Narrative Episode 76: Is It The 90’s Again? Really Governor Bevin?

If you’ve been paying attention to the School Shooting hysteria of the past few weeks what with Florida and even the Benton shootings I’ve covered then you may already know how much experience I have in addressing these issues.…
