Breaking the Narrative 118: Little Girls Are Not Innocent Princesses! Breaking a Review of Rule of Rose!

In the spirit of being unpredictable I want to pull out a rare game as a way to show why the censorship of media is inherently troublesome. This is an example of a game that has been banned in multiple countries across the world, and was targeted with a ban attempt here in the states, though to no serious avail.…

The BBC, The #WarOnNerds And The Matrix

[See: http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20190319-the-matrixs-male-power-fantasy-has-dated-badly]

It isn’t surprising that the BBC, and public broadcasting generally, is full of Progressive-Left Identity-Politics advocates; public broadcasting typically ends up supportive of ideologies that support public broadcasting, and it typically ends up catering to the norms and sensibilities of the kind of people that watch public broadcasting.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 117: Breaking a Review of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam!

On April 7th, 1979, the first episode of the original Mobile Suit Gundam aired in Japan to very mixed reviews, pulling a Star Trek in becoming a cult classic in syndication after the initial airing. This is thanks to the creation of toys and model kits during the early 1980’s to grow the popularity of the initial anime.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 115: Revisiting the Shield Hero! Interesting Parallels.

Its been another interesting week with the ending of February. However I wish to go back to Rise of the Shield Hero because I decided to take a peek ahead in the light novel due to how the anime is going. Oooh boy did I find something interesting. Considering how I’ve been getting fairly good at breaking down individual characters I looked specifically at the false accuser Myne Sophia also known as Malty Melromarc – Princess of the Kingdom of Melromarc.…

Well the situation from last article¬†has grown very out of control and it’s probably going to get even more intense as we go on… so much so that I have gotten a bit caught up in trying to help research things to aid in the issue. However, despite the fight for the innocent going on, I still have my own job to do, my own stuff to break down.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 113: False Accusations Are Here Again: Vic Mignogna Is Innocent!

This should be no surprise to anyone but with the accusations against voice actor Vic Mignogna (Edward Elric of Full Metal Alchemist, Broly of Dragon Ball Super, and several others) I am likely to have to put in my two cents. First let me disclose that I do not personally know Mr.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 112: Whats in a Name? An Overview of Zeta Gundam’s Kamille Bidan.

Well here we go from outcast to outcast as we delve back into Zeta Gundam’s characters. Again, as with Char, I will state that I’ll likely do a full review of the Zeta Gundam anime before the first of April. The reason for that is because in addition to around that time marking my full third year on this site, it marks the 40th anniversary of the Gundam metaseries franchise.¬†…
