While I will be posting single episode reviews by myself in my trademark QandA style every Saturday, I will in addition be posting collaborative reviews with Irina from I Drink And Watch Anime! For a full posting schedule and explanation, see below:

18th January 2020 – Irina and Matt review ‘To Love-Ru’ Episode 23-24
25th January 2020 – ‘To Love-Ru’ Episode 25 Review
1st February 2020 – Irina and Matt review ‘To Love-Ru’ Episode 25
8th February 2020 – ‘To Love-Ru’ Episode 26 Review (Finale)
15th February 2020 – Irina and Matt review ‘To Love-Ru’ Episode 26 (Finale)

As you can see Irina and I will be covering  3 episodes at a time and doing so once a month (except for episodes that’ll arguably have more to talk about like Episode 1, 25 and 26–hence why they are slated as single episode collaborations). As for the rest of the franchise (i.e Motto To Love-Ru, To Love-Ru Darkness and To Love-Ru Darkness 2nd) I will continue solo reviews of those after the 15th of February 2020; whether Irina decides to continue the collaboration will be dependent on whether she enjoyed the first series enough to continue watching as she’s never watched the series before and could very well hate it! So look forward to my single episode Anime QandA style reviews starting Saturday 8th of June and then Irina and I’s collaborative reviews the week after and then monthly thereafter.

Now, if your question is why so much ‘To Love-Ru’ content? Well that’s simple really, its my favourite anime series of all time and I just wanted to talk about it at length and document my thoughts during the rewatch in a writing style I enjoy. And as for why the collaboration with Irina? Surely I can’t be the only one who forces persuades a friend to watch something they really enjoy with them? Right?!

New Blogging Schedule

A post detailing the new blogging schedule which promises more content for the site going forward!

Hello everyone, first of all I’d like to apologise for the somewhat ~negative~ spin the content on my site has taken over the past few weeks months also the general lack of content altogether. I’ve been working through some things, trying to get myself in the right headspace to continue blogging in a more structured, full-time capacity like I used to do. I’ve come to the conclusion that despite my seemingly laissez-faire attitude towards the blogging process I do in fact need structure in order to produce positive content–and POSITIVITY is the key going forward! Starting from June 3rd I’ll be posting almost every day of the week, with a specific ~type~ of post going out on each given day. The schedule is as follows:

Seasonal Anime Weekly

As the name (hopefully) suggests this’ll be my thoughts on each of the seasonal anime I’m watching week-to-week. As with the current season I still intend to watch 15+ new anime each week as watching seasonally is something I adore and so this weekly post will be a rundown on my thoughts on each new episode of a currently airing seasonal anime I watched just all in the one place. Kind of like my “Watched But Not Reviewed’ series of posts I used to do, just with a less confusing name. (Note: These posts won’t start until July when the new anime season starts, seems kind of silly to start this nearly two thirds of a way through the current season).

Listing Compulsive

I’ve been using the ‘Listing Compulsive’ blog category on for all my Top 10 lists but don’t be ashamed if you don’t recognise the name, I don’t think I’ve every referred to the name in the introduction to any of my lists (maybe the very first one). But yeah basically this’ll be a weekly anime or manga related top 10 list. Simple as that!

Random Content

What’s life without a little spontaneity? Basically, Wednesday’s will be home to things like my travel posts, merch spotlights and whatever other random content that doesn’t fit into the other categories already assigned.

QandA Manga Reviews

I’ve done a few of these already but as the name implies it’s just reviews of manga in my trademark (ha!) QandA style. Every so often I might throw in an ‘Anime vs Manga’ post instead of a manga review.

Seasonal Collab Review [Every Second Week]

Nothing’s gonna stop me from collaborating with Irina (of fame) on a weekly basis! Obviously these posts will alternate between appearing on her site and mine each week hence the “[Every Second Week]” addendum.

‘To Love-Ru’ Anime QandA Special Series

Okay, so in what I’m calling my “passion project”, each Saturday will see a post dedicated to my favourite anime series of all time ‘To Love-Ru’ (that’s including all the sequel seasons FYI). What this entails is basically a smorgasbord of content, episodic reviews, anime to manga comparisons, maybe even a couple of sneaky collabs if I’m lucky! It’s likely to take at least 100 weeks to go through all the content I want to, hence why its earning a semi-permanent spot on the schedule!


And that’s it for the schedule, obviously things are subject to change, posts might be delayed or moved to different days given IRL circumstances, and of course there’s always the chance a seasonal show captivates me enough to talk about it week-to-week. Also one more piece of site related housekeeping, in the interest of making this site more positive I won’t be posting parts 2 and 3 of my ‘Critical of Criticism’ rants–I don’t feel like they’re in-line with what I want for the site going forward. The only reason I’m keeping the post up at all is because of the supportive comments I got from Pete and Crow which helped fuel this “new” direction for the site. Other than that though this is more than likely the future of Anime QandA, I hope it looks interesting and I’ll see you again in the next post!
