Plot Twists

by Michelle C. There is nothing quite like leaving a theater after having watched a movie with a plot twist. Half the audience is in shock and awe. The other half loudly claiming that they knew how it would end the whole time. I am in the first half. Even if I know going into […]

Beyond Bestsellers: Anime/Manga Film Adaptations

by Kimberly P. For this month, we’re diving back into Beyond Bestsellers, and our theme is Film Adaptations. I thought to myself, Self why not talk about film adaptations of some of my favorite manga? I’ve written a few posts before about my love of manga and anime, and so I’ll try to avoid repeating titles […]
