Hey guys, Low Kev here, and I would like to take some time to talk about something particularly near and dear to my heart. You see, I would like to think that over the course of my many musical posts, I have made it clear that music is very important to me. When I hear a soundtrack specifically that I feel is truly special, I immediately feel a strong desire to listen to it more, analyze it, and tell the masses about its glory. Well, I have waited far too long to talk about this anime’s soundtrack. It has touched my heart quite deeply, and while I feel that I made my love for it quite clear in its respective review, I simply must talk more about this masterpiece of modern art. So without further ado, let’s get into it. Continue reading

If it hasn’t been made obvious enough at this point: I love music, I also love anime, and I absolutely adore it when an anime gets me into new music through their opening and closing themes.

Fair warning: I will be spoiling pretty much everything in this show, so SPOILER WARNING! This show is very dependent on its mystery aspect, so I urge you to watch the show without any plot details if you’re a horror fan. That being said, let’s dive in. Continue reading

Hello anime fans, and happy Month of Halloween! This is my first of (hopefully) two Halloween special posts for October. And what anime did I want to focus on first for this celebration of all things spooky? With the anime abomination known as Diabolik Lovers of course! Oh boy… I will be spoiling pretty much everything about this series in the article. While I don’t recommend you watch this, if you did want to, SPOILER WARNING. Please note that this is my opinion. I’m going to be pretty harsh on this show, but that does not mean that you are wrong for liking the show, and I definitely respect your opinion. Now then… Let’s sink our teeth into this one (I’m sorry about that). Continue reading
