It's time for Anime Expo!! (cat has returned)

Image result for anime expoWhere oh where has our lovely site admin gone? Where are all of those new posts and reviews that she promised to do? With all of the Spring seasons wrapping up, she needs to give us coverage!

Yes yes, I hear all of you. But I have a good reason for falling off the face of the earth for 15 days. You see, I am currently in LA getting ready to attend Anime Expo, the largest convention in North America. I'm super excited to be here, and I've been spending a lot of time preparing a strategy. So that has kept me pretty busy and will continue to do so for at least a couple days.

AX-13-GuideI believe a few of you will be at AX as well, and if any of you want to meet up and chat, feel free to send me an email or message! I love being able to meet you guys when I can, and I will be handing out buttons. I have Vocaloid, Soul Eater, SAO, and probably 15 other fandoms, but I'll probably only carry around 5-10 per day so I can keep the weight down. Whether you're a fan of the Anime Society or my side work of OC reviews, as long as you know the super secret password (Which is Scrublord of course) you can get a super special button. You're welcome.

Now, how are you going to find me, with over 250,000 people in this convention? Well, you can find me at the Fate/Grand Order launch, the premieres at Welcome to the Ballroom, Violet Evergarden, and TheAncientt Magus' Bride. I will also be at the Crunchyroll Simulcast Preview panel on the 4th. I will not be in any cosplay this year, but I'll have a purple space backpack. You'll probably be able to find me because I'm sprinting through the crowds and look like I'm about to commit murder. I'm taking this years trip pretty seriously...

So I look forward to seeing some of you there, and I'm super excited to be able to participate in the event this year. I won't have any more posts up for a while, but when I get back from the trip I will definitely work on churning some out for you guys. I marathoned plenty of seasons of anime (coughGurrenLaganncough) so I have plenty to talk about once I sit my lazy ass down and get cracking.

Diabolik Lovers: So you think you can suck?

There was so much sucking, in so many different aspects. They're sucking blood. The plot sucks. The romance sucks. You think you suck? At least you can watch this show and feel better knowing that it sucks more than you ever will. 

Seven Mortal Sins: Ecchi with a Helping of Stereotypes

This anime actually pissed me off. First I tried to watch it on Crunchyroll, where in the first few minutes they had all of these really wacky censoring pentagrams and beams of neon pink light screwing everything up. I gave up and tried again on a pirate site. I wish I didn't. I wish I had been driven away by the migraine inducing censorship. But no, I witnessed the horrors of the first episode of this piece of shit show.

I still can't believe South Park had an entire episode dedicated to yaoi and the TweekxCraig fandom.

WorldEnd: The Tragedy of Hope (Paper Shredders Engulfed in Lava)

Let me start out by saying that this is a tough series. We know how this is going to end. We know that our hearts are going to go through a paper shredder. Things are going to go to shit, and what's worse is the series tries to sugarcoat it at times and give us hope. The paper shredder is on fire now. Did I say fire? I meant immersed in fucking lava. Also, Pac-Man is an anime character apparently.

*✲゚* Ithea *✲゚*

Spoiler The Ithea we know is actually someone from her past life who took over her body, and while this breaks our hearts, we can't help but welcome her with open arms, letting her know we will love her just the same.


Watch WorldEnd: What are you doing at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us? Now!

Animals: Apparently some people need a random blogger to tell them if Maroon 5's song is socially acceptable

I read an incredible LevixReader fanfiction (Animals) a few days ago, one that was based on the song 'Animals' by Maroon 5. Now normally I don't read reader inserts or ones with such a horrible nature, but the author is really good and I just like their work in general, so I felt compelled to read all of their stuff. But anyway, the song was stuck in my head, so I listened to it on repeat for a while. Eventually, I started to pay attention to the lyrics, and I have to say that I was pretty surprised. I poked around, and apparently, it was a big deal and a huge controversy. I know I'm late to the party, but how about we talk about whether it's okay to like this song.

Introducing: The Non-Anime Tag (BLASPHEMY)

Oh hey, didn't see you there. Just kidding, I saw you. I see all, I know all, I AM all. In about 30 minutes you'll see a cool new article written by yours truly, but what is this?! It's not about anime?! 

SJDCVFHDFDKSDJFG *throws a fit* BLASPHEMY!!!

Image result for you're welcome animeHold on, calm down. Here at the Anime Society, I promise that we will try to focus on anime, that's what we're here for after all. But we also want to extend our reaches to other pop culture stuff, like bands and movies and tv series. We have to keep up with the trends you know. So every now and then, when someone gets inspired, you may see our new Non-Anime tag! You can use the search bar to look for those sorts of articles, so there you go.

Now you have something other than anime and salty bloggers in your life. You're welcome, I just made your life more well-rounded and fulfilling.

Tsukigakirei: Background Characters bout to get ROASTED

Even background characters get a chance in the spotlight... The spotlight in the interrogation room, that is. The background characters in this series are so bizarre, so wrong, there's something about them that seriously bothers me and I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS. So, I've taken the time to personally find out what the heck makes these background characters so irritating, why are they SO DAMN WEIRD?!

。*ヾ☆♡Albedo♡ヾ*。

Albedo is the enchanting overseer of Nazarick, and has fully devoted her heart to Momonga. She has dedicated herself to enacting his will, and can be intense at times, but in the end she just wants to experience the beauty of love. A beautiful badass yandere!

The Royal Tutor: The Man, The Myth, The Mystery... Heine?!

Throughout all of the current episodes, we've seen hints of Heine's previous life, but nothing has been explicitly stated. There are a few ideas of who he used to be, and I would like to take this time to analyze them. Here we have seven theories, and I have tried to rate them from least realistic to most. Now, who is Heine? The man, the myth, the tutor... the chibi.
