Mum Watches… Wolf Children (she cries) — Mum, this is why I like anime – Holy Heck So Many Views!

Hahahahahaha, not gonna lie, getting my Mum to cry while watching an anime is probably the greatest achievement of my life. Just due to the fact that she was staunchly convinced that anime ‘would never make her cry’. This film obviously resonated with her quite powerfully, being a single mum herself, with three (almost) […] via… Read More Mum Watches… Wolf Children (she cries) — Mum, this is why I like anime – Holy Heck So Many Views!

Mum Watches… Ghost In The Shell — Mum, this is why I like anime

So despite the serious lack of pants in this show, Mum quite liked the first episode of the 2002 Ghost In The Shell anime. I think with all detective-based anime, there is something that all parents can already understand in the world that they are viewing. It was also interesting to see how we both […]… Read More Mum Watches… Ghost In The Shell — Mum, this is why I like anime

Mum Watches… Ouran High School Host Club — Mum, this is why I like anime

Now I absolutely love this anime with a passion, I think it is the sweetest, funniest, cutest thing I have ever watched. It is most definitely a slice-of-life/high school anime, it is also a reverse harem anime. So I thought my mum would enjoy the simple, cute antics of the first episode. She did not. […]… Read More Mum Watches… Ouran High School Host Club — Mum, this is why I like anime

Mum Watches… One Punch (Dude) Man — Mum, this is why I like anime

So Mum seemed to actually enjoy this! Gotta say I’m surprised, but she does have a weird sense of humour (as we discovered in Attack On Titan).

R/roastme: Proof That Not All Selfies Are Equal

The ‘epidemic’ of the selfie in modern cultural is perpetually surrounded by the themes of ‘narcissism’, ‘vapidness’, and ‘self-obessession’ (Saltz, 2014).
