Formerly titled Sonic Jam on my old blog, Blue Blurbs will be a series where I go through every conceivable piece of Sonic media and talk about it. These discussions will largely be formatted and built around whatever I feel is appropriate for the game, comic, or show I'm talking about. Thanks to Joshua for … Continue reading Blue Blurbs – “Sonic The Hedgehog” (1991)
Today, prolific manga artist Monkey Punch has passed away. While I'm far from an expert on the man's life, his creations have had a lot of major impact on my own life. It's difficult, really, to put how much Lupin III means to me into words, but I'll try. And if you stick around, I've … Continue reading What Lupin III Means To Me

In the meantime, why not listen to the new episode my podcast, Rocketto Punchi? In this week's episode, we talk smutty anime, "CalArts" style, Noah Centineo as Shinji Ikari, … Continue reading New Podcast Episode! It’s Bad! Listen to It!
