Killua Zoldyck: From Assassin to Best Friend

30-DAY ANIME CHALLENGE < Day 16 | Day 18 > Day 17:  Favourite Supporting Male Anime Character Who agrees with me when I say that Killua Zoldyck’s characterization is better than HUNTER x HUNTER‘s main protagonist, Gon Freecss?  Like Hisoka, I think that Killua’s character is  more dynamic and interesting compared to Gon’s.  Unlike the honest and […]

The Colourful Worlds of PONYO and PAPRIKA

30-DAY ANIME CHALLENGE < Day 15 | Day 17 > Day 16:  Anime With the Best Animation I think that renowned director Hayao Miyazaki‘s animated films (宮﨑 駿/Miyazaki Hayao) have some of the best animation in the industry.  I also admire that his films’ stories are beautiful and symbolic.  It’s hard to choose which one of […]
