We’re back with some more Sankarea discussion!

This time around, Lynn and I cover episodes 10 & 11, the episodes that appear to be the climax of the series. We will have to wait for episode 12 to know for sure.. Still, we found plenty of reasons to bash the protagonist, Chihiro, once again. Something that has become our favourite pastime in these discussions!

Writing Prompt: Is it better to have a protagonist with a bad personality… or no personality at all?

Now here’s an interesting question that I should have some thoughts on, given how often I point out when the protagonist in an anime is boring or feels copy-pasted from countless other series.

Is it better to have a protagonist with a bad personality rather than no personality at all?

Lynn and I continue on with our journey through the zomromcom (term coined by Lynn – zombie romantic comedy) known as Sankarea, Undying Love. The anime about a boy and his love of zombies.

The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn as a Typical Nobody Review (Spoiler Free)

Next up from Spring 2022 we have Shijou Saikyou no Daimaou, Murabito A ni Tensei suru (The Greatest Demon Lord is Reborn as a Typical Nobody).

Interestingly, the Japanese title doesn’t say “typical nobody” but instead “Villager A” if you were to translate directly, of course referring to the NPC villagers in fantasy games.

And as you can see, the light novel / anime marketing trend of turning the title of your product into a mini-synopsis isn’t going anywhere. And my two cents on this topic are that while I think it’s effective, titles like this will never hit as hard or be as memorable as a well thought out and cool sounding title.

That, and I can’t be bothered to type out that whole title, meaning I’m stuck using references like “this one”, “this anime”, “it”…
