Last Special of the Year – Crimson is Hosting December’s #theJCS!

Hello everyone and welcome back to this little corner of the internet! It’s been a few months since I last hosted #theJCS and I’m glad I’m getting the opportunity to help out for a second time this year~

Most of you are probably veteran #theJCS participants but for the newcomers, which I hope continues to increase with every month this project continues, let me explain what this is!

(Reacting) Netflix Series: Two Fathers

When I’m bored, as you guys may have noticed, I like to just turn on the TV and browse through the catalogues

Well today while browsing through Netflix, I found this Taiwanese drama called Two Fathers and not only did I instantly add it to My List, I also watched maybe 5 minutes of it before needing to run over here and just SCREAM (and thus Crimson started a new section on the blog)

[Review] The Great Pretender (Netflix)

I am SO excited to talk about this show on my blog!! I’m actually surprised I haven’t seen too much about The Great Pretender, or maybe I really am living under a rock. I remember hearing about it and I most definitely told myself I’d get to it eventually. Eventually was a year later because I forgot and only remembered when I opened Netflix up and started my usual 5-hour browsing marathon

I’ve been meaning to talk about this anime on the blog for what feels like forever now. Every time I open WordPress and check my drafts, this is at the top. But when I open the post, I always stop. Why? Because all I can really say about this show is that I didn’t entirely understand it but still really enjoyed it

I know, what kind of review is that, right?

And by the time I actually had the will to just write anything, I also forgot the smaller details. Yup, it’s been a while since I last properly watched this. That is, until last month. Yup! Last month I decided to rewatch this show because I’d seen that there was now a S2 and I can’t just jump into S2 without remembering S1, right? But I gave myself a little challenge this time. I rewatched it…in Spanish!

So I Started Watching Yowamushi Pedal (Ep1)

Whenever I think about this anime, I’m instantly transported back to that one time I went to yaoi-con and was browsing the artist alley. Right there, by the door, was an artist with some super cute merch! So cute that I decided to buy some of their stuff without knowing the anime.

I hardly, if ever, do this. I like to spend money on my OTPs and favorite shows, sometimes on OCs, but shows I haven’t watched? Nope. But I just couldn’t resist these pins!

Fast-forward sometime later, and yes, I’m finally getting to that show!!

How I Disasterously Described a Sports Anime (Let’s Talk)

I’ve been thinking about how to tell you guys this story, this discussion I had with an IRL. I briefly considered just making a thread on Twitter but the more I started writing, the more I realized I was saying A LOT. So I decided to just make a post about it

I feel like with that title you might be expecting something fun, creative, or even funny, but that’s not what this post is. It’s just me telling you about an incident and how I badly described a sports anime to someone I know
