Fish’s Thoughts: Great Anime Moms

anime mom bannerFirst off, I should apologize for this being as late as it is mates. I try and keep a consistent posting schedule, however I really haven’t been doing very well with that lately.

Anyways, with Mother’s Day having just passed us by, I’ve been thinking about mothers in relation to anime. It’s fairly common in anime for mothers to be rather unseen, or in more severe cases, dead (looking at you Full Metal Alchemist).

Today mate I want to talk about Sachiko Fujinuma and Inko Midoriya!

So what does this mean?

Fish’s Thoughts: Morrowind and Games Aging

morrowing bannerA large part of my love of games is focused in the realm of RPGs. Among these one of my favorites is the popular The Elders Scrolls series, especially Skyrim. I find the lore and world that exist in them fascinating! That however is a topic for another day. Today I want to talk about one major problem I have with the older games in the series, mainly Morrowind.

Simply put, I just can’t play it for any extended period of time.

Fish’s Thoughts: The Heroic Legend of Arslan

arslan and daryunOne of my early post here on EhTaku was an First Impressions of The Heroic Legend of Arslan anime, an adaptation of the manga by Hiromu Arakawa. At the time of writing that post the anime had only just begin airing so I ended up only giving my thoughts on the first three episodes. Well now that I’ve seen the show through a few times I feel like I should share some more thoughts, based on my now fuller knowledge. This may get into spoiler territory however, so if you have not yet seen the show consider yourself warned.

Now let’s take another look over The Heroic Legend of Arslan!
