Another day, another One Piece feature. This time I took a look at One Piece's use of music, which has really shone since Whole Cake Island. I've always enjoyed anime music, so seeing One Piece lean so heavily into its music is pure catnip for me. And I'll take any opportunity I can get to … Continue reading Crunchyroll Feature-The Special Way One Piece Uses Music to Enhance Its Stories

There's nothing wrong with exploring a commonly used theme, but the key to making it … Continue reading Pointlessness is Not a Point: The Last of Us Part 2’s Greatest Weakness
