The Problem with Nagatoro’s “Sus”

January 28, 2022

Don't Toy with Me, Miss Nagatoro anime series logoIn this article, I discuss the issues with anime series translations using memes and other short-life-span slang. Once a meme is dead, it’s viewed as cringe and a desperate attempt at looking cool. And in the future, many of these memes won’t make sense.

Laid-Back Camp Season 2 anime series logoThe best way to celebrate the first month of a new year is with a Laid-Back Camp review. While we’re not getting a new season of the series this year, we did get Season 2 in 2021. So, my review of Laid Back Camp Season 2 is the first featured article of 2022.

2021 Anime Tier List


Winter 2022 Season Update

For the winter 2022 season, I’m planning to watch only 10 anime series. That’s 2 less than I watched during the fall 2021 season. However, this time around I wasn’t intentionally lowering the number of anime I plan to watch. There just don’t seem to be many series this season that interest me.

There are 3 series I’m watching that are continuing on from the previous season. These are Boruto (as always), Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc, and Lupin III Part 6. Boruto and Demon Slayer episode reviews will be posted every Sunday and Monday respectively.

Next, we have the 3 series that are returning with new seasons that I plan to watch. These are Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san 3, Princess Connect! Re:Dive Season 2, and Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2. Attack on Titan episode reviews will be posted every Tuesday and will be free from manga spoilers (I read the manga after Season 3).

I might add the new season of Arifureta to this list as well depending on how much I feel like hating myself. But for now, I’m leaving it off my watch list.

Finally, there are 3 brand new anime I’ll be watching this season. These are World’s End Harem, My Dress-Up Darling, and Akebi’s Sailor Uniform. The latter of the three I picked up after the season was already underway.
