School Days: The Dark Side of Love [OWLS Blog Tour February 2019 – Adore]

In February, we will be exploring love and romance. The word selected is “adore” because it has two main connotations: to be loved and respected or to feel worshipped. We will analyze characters that give us a feeling of admiration and explain why we love those characters. We will also be exploring different forms of love (familial, friendship, and even self-love) and how those types of love influence our lives.

Anime Review: Chuunibyou

Suitably Bored

I’m a sucker for a good romance anime. These shows pull at my heartstrings because they tend to be cute and, at times, genuine. Also, they illustrate how you can find love in the strangest of ways, as in the case of Chuunibyou. At face value I thought Chuunibyou was a show filled with teenagers having super powers and fighting evil, but all of that happens in the imagination of some of the characters. At the heart of it all, Chuunibyou is a teen romantic comedy and a great one at that.
