I announced back in August that I’d branched out a bit from just writing reviews and jumped into a podcast with  ani-bloggers/YouToubers Lita Kino and Shay Taree called the Fangirl Trash Can Podcast!! We dropped our first episode Umbrellas, Gods + Otome #1 on YouTube a few months ago, but I’m excited to announce that we’re on Anchor now! Yay! AND, we just dropped our second episode:

Manga Can’t Sing to Me, So I Watched the ‘Given’ Anime

So while I had a week off from work for the holidays, I decided to break my unofficial anime hiatus by watching, Given—this was of course after I read through the available print manga volumes. But, since manga can’t sing to me I had to watch the anime if I was going to have any reference points for all of the songs.

For those of you that have been living under a rock for the past year, Given is a music themed anime series based on the bimonthly boys love manga series by Natsuki Kizu. The series follows the highs and lows of a four man amateur rock band, and the romantic relationships that form between them. The band is made up of hotheaded prodigy guitarist Uenoyama, fuckboi playboy drummer Akihiko, soft boi bassist Haruki, and the newest addition Mafuyu, a gifted singer still dealing with the weight of a recent tragedy.

Given Anime Blerdy Otome Review

There was a lot of buzz surrounding the series when it was released in 2019 and it has not died down since, especially after it was announced that we’re getting a film sometime in 2021. So with the promise of more Given content on the horizon, this felt like as good a time as any to jump on the ol’ bandwagon and see what all the fuss was about… so let’s see if Given stands up to all the hype.

Mr. Love: Queen’s Choice Episode 1 – Anime First Impressions

Hey, hey Blerdy Tribe, the first episode of the anime adaptation of Mr. Love: Queen’s Choice just dropped on Crunchyroll and I wanted to share my thoughts. For those of you unfamiliar with the game, Mr. Love: Queen’s Choice is a female oriented mobile game developed by Chinese game developer Elex in 2017.

Mr. Love gives you the opportunity to text, chat and even call the main characters while developing your own career as a media producer. In the game you play as a media producer trying to save your failing production company—fantasy and romance collide as you become involved with four men, each with a secret of their own. With each new episode you uncover the truth behind the mystery, unveiling an immersive story.

Full disclosure, I downloaded the app and played maybe 2 episodes and then dropped the game (because I can’t keep up with mobile games), soI have a very basic knowledge of the game and it’s premise—so what I’m saying is I’m no expert on Mr. Love. I went into this first episode practically blind, so forgive me in advanced if I bring up something that is explained in the game.

Hi, I Like Anime! YES, I’m a REAL Anime Fan!

gate·keep·ing

/ˈɡātˌkēpiNG/
noun
  1. the activity of controlling, and usually limiting, general access to something.

We are all familiar with the term “gatekeeping” at this point in the game, especially if you run in many of the nerdy circles of the internet. Because, let’s face it the nerd community isn’t always the wholesome escape we want it to be—especially if you happen to be BIPOC, female/ female presenting, or anyone that isn’t a straight white male. So, being a black female nerd is like a double whammy sometimes, with me having to constantly PROVE that I am a “real” nerd, to folks who feel they are the last remaining accolades of some secret club. Just because I don’t watch or read the hottest “mainstream” nerd media, that somehow invalidates my nerd card and that’s just not fair.
