NO SPOILERS I genuinely have no idea what I thought of The Last Jedi. If you know me in person or have been following this site in some capacity, you’ll know how much of a massive Star Wars fan I am. With The Force Awakens being tied with Return of the Jedi as my favorite
I hope the fall has been treating you all well. I want to tackle the elephant in the room right away before diving into anything else. Yes, I haven’t posted on this site for roughly four months. A combination of having an immensely busy final semester schedule (that’s right, I’m graduating in December) and temporarily

Having such a profound
I’m proud to announce a brand-new series, One Piece: The Grand Re-Read. Join me, Josh Klafter, Captain of the Josh E. Pirates, as I take a gonzo voyage back through the Grand Line. Just as Gol D. Roger left notes on poneglyphs across his route to Raftel, I will be dropping a blog post for
Of course they failed! In all honesty, I feel like somewhat of an idiot for believing that Oda was done addressing Big Mom’s backstory for the time being. The way he intertwined her continuing past narrative with the current action was outstanding. Although this chapter wasn’t quite as potent as its predecessor, there is still
