Since I abandoned the anime screenshots project a few years ago, I’ve received several comments from people wanting it back. After much deliberation (amongst me, myself, and I of course), I’ve decided to start it up again to see how it goes. This time instead of weekly posts, it will be seasonal, covering some of the more interesting screenshots of the past few months. For those new to the Anime Screenshots column, it’s basically a collection of screenshots that I took while watching anime that I felt were worthy of sharing, as you can see below.
Anime such as Mirai Nikki promote violent and deadly behaviour among children and should be censored.

Prelude: In case you missed my previous posts, I am practicing to write persuasive essays in 30 minutes for the GMAT and decided to write blog posts at the same time. The topic above is one I created and the essay below is my answer. There are some spelling and grammatical errors, but that just shows how fast 30 minutes is. If you have some tips or suggestions for writing a good essay within the time-frame, please share.
A while back, I was compiling a list of the most powerful books in anime. I didn’t get very far because quite frankly, there aren’t many popular examples. Instead, I had another fun idea: who in the world would be most suited or likely to possess the most powerful books in anime? A few days later, a huge news story swept the Korean peninsula: Kim Jong-il dead from a heart attack. For one of the most popular (not in a good way) villans of our time to die of a simple heart attack sounded suspicious to me… like something out of Death Note, wouldn’t you say?
If you haven’t heard of a Death Note before, see the below image for a run-down of how it works:
It’s time for another round-up of the season’s anime. I know I’m a month late to the party, but I attribute that to travelling for 3 weeks and spending 2 weeks catching up on everything. I won’t bore you with the plot summaries, you can find them anywhere, these are just my impressions of the series for Fall 2011 and whether I consider them worth watching or not. If you are new to my blog, note that I don’t include sequels/continuations as I would be watching a story starting in the middle. Seasonal awards will be given out at the end of this post.
