The Way of the Househusband Parts 1 & 2 Season Wrap

It feels weird considering Parts 1 and 2 separately since The Way of the Househusband is a short with each episode only lasting 17-18 minutes and released in totality on Netflix. Watching the show in spurts was exactly how my husband and I treated the show as we sat down for dinner and queued up a few episodes at a time; this show was our go-to series for when we needed something lighthearted with a low time commitment.

[12 Days of Anime] Day 1: ODDTAXI

Was there ever any doubt?

One episode into ODDTAXI and I knew that what we had here was a masterpiece in the making, an anime we’d be talking about for years to come and that defied all expectations.

Merry Christmas, dear readers, and welcome to my last addition to my 12 Days of Anime—a love letter to the show ODDTAXI.

The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent (maybe)

Spoiler: The secret power is LOVE

I’ve been really enjoying The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent this season, since it fits some of my favorite genres and archetypes: fantasy, a strong main female character, and a little bit of romance. The show even does a fair job of balancing work and home life–a topic that looks to be pretty popular these recent seasons which shows like I’ve Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level as another example. By the whole, Saint’s Magic has been a ton of fun with Sei stumbling across new discoveries every day, meeting (mostly) kind people, and overall living a more fulfilling life in her new world than she ever did in the old. Yet as each episode aired week to week, I repeatedly viewed scenes underlining her otherness as not only a saint, but as a woman. Despite her role as one to save, she frequently is the one being saved by the numerous male characters around her. She feels less omnipotent and more a model in a glass case.
