Is Manga a Guilt Trip?

As much as I enjoy manga and the many stories that have come out of it, there are things that bother me about the industry. Some of you may know about the horror stories surrounding Eiichiro Oda’s work schedule. An interesting blog post by a mangaka went in a direction that got me thinking - can you feel guilty about making and enjoying manga?

Being an Imposter…or Not One

Mr. Satan aka Hercule, one of the finest imposter heroes ever.

One thing plagues my mind and it’s something that some of you may have thought about  - have you felt as if you’re a fraud without anyone telling you so? I haven’t been called a “fake geek/fan”, but in some ways, I’ve felt that I lack true expertise in an area I should have full knowledge about.

Don’t Let Burnout Make You Useless!

Roy Mustang is burnt out.

Ever felt like there’s too much anime and manga to follow? You’re not alone as Anime News Network covers the issue of anime burnout in their podcast, ANNCast.

ANNCast Episode 172 - Burnout Paradise

This is totally worth your attention as burnout happens to everyone. It’s amazing to see how fans can do reviews of episodes and/or chapters on a daily basis. You have to wonder what keeps their flames going.

Some fans say that they want their lives to be filled with anime/manga, but too much of anything is a bad thing.

Sometimes you gotta take a step back to take a step forward, right?

The Individualistic Mind of the Female Titan

The Female Titan attacks.

"What I did was wrong…I’m not going to ask you to forgive me after all that’s happened…There’s one thing…just one thing i want to ask of you. I don’t care if you make the entire world your enemy. Even if every other creature alive comes to hate you, your father will always be on your side. So please, promise me that you’ll come back!"

Parenting is a rough job, but are there times where parents stop and think about how their children can be capable of being cruel? Case in point - a young teenage girl who committed tons of bloodshed for a cause personally worth fighting for. Attack on Titan’s second story arc focused on a Female Titan that was determined to kidnap the main character, Eren Jaeger, for the sake of killing mankind. Her story reflects a world where society forces people to be more individualistic and possibly fall into ruin.

HUGE SPOILER ALERT after the jump for fans not familiar with Titan or starting out with the series.
