It’s a debate that’s been raging for nearly two decades: Which is better, Nickelodeon, or Cartoon Network? It’s been argued about endlessly, and no one ever agrees on which is better. In this article, I will attempt, once and for all, to determine which channel is better. I will make my decision based on three main categories:
Eras– I will talk about how good each channel was throughout the years, from each half of each decade starting with the early ’90s.
Spinoff Channels– Both Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network have spinoff channels, and those will factor into my final decision. After all, why just stop at the main channel like everyone else does?
Programming Blocks- Both channels are known for their programming blocks. They’re an important part of each channel, and as such, deserve to be included in the debate as well.
In reviewing these categories, I will attempt to create the most comprehensive article on this debate on the internet. Lets hope I succeed. Continue reading
This is the second part in a series of character analysis from the anime and manga Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack On Titan). Now, this goes without saying, but this will take into consideration all facets of a character’s personality, talents, families, special abilities and past, and that includes the manga. So, if you are an anime watcher that hasn’t read ahead, be prepared for massive spoilers. Continue reading

Happy Halloween, Happy Katana fans! Today, I’m going to embark on a much-anticipated new direction in my articles. In the past month or so, I have found my life consumed by a new manga/anime series. This marks the beginning of a series of articles pertaining to said series. Anyway, without further adieu, let’s jump into this.
If you’re an anime or manga patron, you’ve more than likely heard of, if you haven’t read or seen, a series entitled Shingeki no Kyojin, also refered to by it’s rough English translation, Attack on Titian. Based on the already-popular manga, SNK has been made into an anime that has literally taken the world by storm. From fanart on Tumblr to forum chats to anime conventions the world over, it’s getting to the point where it’s damn near impossible to say the word “anime” without someone bringing up Shingeki no Kyojin. Yeah, it’s that popular. Today, I’m going to take a critical look at the anime, not the manga, to see if this show is really worth the hype it’s created.
This review will be based on plot, animation, characters, and music. Continue reading
Oh, how I hate thee.
Hello there, Happy Katana fans. Today, I am going to rant about Disney Channel. Wait, criticizing Disney during Disney Month? What kind of asshole does that? This kind of asshole does that, so get over it, shitheads!
I apologize. That was not necessary whatsoever. So please forgive me and read this article. Please? Thank you, I thought you’d understand.
Yeah, yeah, I know I just did an article centered around My Little Pony, but my anticipation for season four has my pony-loving fangirl fangasms reaching new heights that I previously wouldn’t have found physically possible. So, before Disney Month takes over my life, I’m going to talk about what is without a doubt my favorite episode of the show that, sadly, gets a lot of hate and negative reviews. Well, this will probably be more of a rant than a review, so enjoy.
Yeah, it’s high time I finally veer off the path of video games and write something movie or TV-related. What better way to kick that off than with one of my favorite cartoons on TV as of now, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic? Now, before I even get started, let me repeat: this is a MLP article. If you don’t like this show, don’t read it. I’m protected from the whole “ponyfag” debate, being as I’m a girl, and therefore part of My Little Pony’s targeted audience.
So without further adieu, let’s jump right into this.
Disregard the fact that it says Logan Ruckman, Brendan actually wrote this.
DRAGON BALL REVIEW
Back when I was younger, my older brothers and I used to watch both DB and DBZ. I was very young at the time so I do not remember too much about the series, but around a year ago my friend bought all nine seasons of DBZ, and I watched it with him and then decide to borrow the first season.
I watched the first season, but over a course of at least two months, so I didn’t remember everything 100 percent that was happening, but soon after I started the second season. I made it half way through before getting caught up in other things and not continuing to watch the show. Now a few months ago I decided to start watching DBZ again, so I watched a few episodes of the first season before quitting. I couldn’t continue without watching DB first. So here I am, in late March, I receive all five seasons of the Funimation (my favourite) dub in the mail. A month and a few days later, I have finished the entire show and here is my review. Now this review contains spoilers, so if you don’t wish to have anything spoiled for you, quit reading.
The “Give Us A Classic Nick Channel” Campaign is a campaign on Facebook dedicated to convincing Nickelodeon to create a spinoff channel that airs all the old Nickelodeon shows. It asks us to send letters (and if you want, emails) to Nickelodeon asking for this. I, for one, fully support this cause. Who wouldn’t love a channel that airs the Nick shows they grew up with? If Cartoon Network can air classic CN shows on Boomerang, then why can’t Nickelodeon do the same? If you’re interested in the campaign, go to http://www.facebook.com/events/415638428510555/. You can also go to http://www.change.org/petitions/viacom-and-nickelodeon-give-us-a-24-7-classic-nick-channel to sign the petition. I urge everyone who reads this blog to support the campaign. We can do this. We can make this happen. All that’s needed is for you to care.
Who doesn’t like a good sitcom? An asshole, that’s who. Sitcoms are great for laughs, and it’s one of my favorite TV genres of all time, which is why I’m making this list. Unlike most top tens which would list ten sitcoms in one list, I’m going to separate this into two top 5 lists; Top 5 Live Action Sitcoms, and Top 5 Animated Sitcoms, because I love both live action and animated sitcoms and I wanted to make it equal between both of them. Now, without further ado, let’s begin.
