Frozen Again

When they made Frozen, they started out going in one direction, and then completely turned around and went in another. It shows, but the narrative they put together, complete with the cast and the soundtrack, was pretty phenomenal anyway. They … Continue reading

It begins with the protagonist dying. And it’s not a reborn-isekai story. Yu-Yu Hakusho is a shounen anime from my younger days. It starts out with the drama surrounding the death and resurrection of the lead protagonist, Yusuke Urameshi, but then it … Continue reading
