Every good thing comes to an end: Jujutsu Kaisen’s final episode will air this Friday. The anime adaptation of Gege Akutami’s manga, which was eagerly anticipated by many fans, did not disappoint. Beyond the numerous sakugas that the staff of MAPPA studio has produced, it is important to point how well they have successfully mastered the rhythm of the series. Each episode seemed to have its own distinct quality that made us eagerly anticipate the next.
Jujutsu Kaisen will undoubtedly be renewed for a second season, owing to the popularity of the anime. Two important questions, however, remain unanswered: When…
It’s difficult to recommend Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure to anyone who isn’t an anime fan. The fact that it is a long tale does complicate matters, in addition to being very eccentric from an external point of view. Netflix takes into account the tastes of its subscribers in order to make their upcoming shows according to the shows that are already available on the site. Therefore, seeing a flood of TV shows set in the 80’s right after Stranger Things’ first season is not a surprise given how famous the latter was at the time. Similarly, since viewers nowadays are more…

Longhope Philia in the background, Two Heroes’ ending showed All Might giving a worried look to Midoriya after the harsh fight won against Wolfram, the main villain of the movie. Obvious for many fans of the series, this look could be sum up in one sentence: “Today, I’ve been able to fight alongside you but, you’ll soon be on your own against whatever threat you may face in the future”.
And this is exactly what Heroes: Rising is all about. While Two Heroes — the first movie of the franchise — incorporated the Symbol of Peace as one of its…
« When was the last you listened to someone, or someone really listened to you? »
I kind of thought I was a good listener before I plunged myself into this book. I like to stay silent when someone speaks to me. In the same way, I have the habit to say ‘hm hm’ or ‘oh okay’ to signal to my interlocutor that I am following what he’s trying to tell me. As a result, I thought I was competent enough to place ‘listening’ on my CV as an ability.
The issue is that what I’ve done so far is…
Like The Man in the High Castle, Hunters is an alternative historical TV show. While the former focuses on how the World would have turned out if the Axis would have won the Second World War, Amazon Studio turned its attention towards Operation Paperclip.

Maupassant wrote tons of anthologies, to the point of being reminded just for this feat. Amongst them, we find Le Papa de Simon (Simon’s Dad), Rouerie (Craftiness), Boule de Suif — which is often regarded as his reference — and La Parure. …
You who live safe
In your warm houses,
You who find, returning in the evening,
Hot food and friendly faces;
Consider if this a man
Who works in the mud
Who does not know peace
Who figts for a scrap of bread
Who dies because of a yes or a no.

Without hair and without name
With no more strenght to remember,
Her eyes empty and her womb cold
Like a frog in winter.
Medidate that this came about;
I commend these words to you.
Carve them in your hearts
At home, in the street,
