Welcome to Side Of Fiction. The best side, really.

I write about the things I enjoy here. If you like anime, videogames, storytelling, and the like, I hope you stick around. Basically, if you’re into nerd culture and overly sarcastic people, you’ll like your stay.

Even if you decide to leave right away, I want to say thank you. I really appreciate it anyway, and I hope you have a great life. If you decide to stay, thanks again. It means a lot.

First time here? Check out my favorites

Was it Really That Bad? – Haruhi Suzumiya’s Endless Eight

For those of you who don’t know what the endless eight is, it’s a story arc in the original light novel that lasted a fairly short amount of time. No longer than many of the other short arcs, at least.

So, I Made a Visual Novel And it Was Interesting

I imagine you may have just a few questions after reading that title. The first is probably something along the lines of  “Didn’t you just play your  first visual novel  like a month ago? Aren’t you skipping some steps?”

Little Busters! – My First Real Visual Novel

No, you didn’t read that title wrong. I know, I know, you feel lied to. You feel betrayed. You feel like you can never trust me again. “How can this weeb who just talked about an  anime for Christmas  for over 5000 words a week ago not have played a visual novel before?”

Toradora! – It’s a Christmas Special!

Point is, you should watch Toradora! in December. Even though Toradora really isn’t a Christmas anime. Sure, it’s about love. That’s in the air this time of year, and the last third of the series takes place in winter, but that’s about it.

This just in!

Was Sus Too Much? – When Do Translators Go Too Far?

In case you missed it, our lovely(?) Nagatoro’s line was translated to say “sus.” Now, I don’t want anyone to think there’s some widespread outrage at this. There’s not.

McDonald’s: The Animation – The Devil is a Part-Timer!

If I told you that an anime exists about reformed Satan who decided to give up conquering and enslaving the world to work part-time at a McDonald’s alongside a high school girl in Tokyo where he’s barely able to pay his bills, what would you think? Is it real or not?

Slow Start and Why I Watch Genres I Dislike

With so many wonderful anime to watch out there, why would I waste my time watching something I may not like. I don’t know, to be honest.

Why Harry Potter and Persona Would be the Perfect Match

So, I had an idea. Wait, why are you running? I know it may be a little dangerous when I get those, but this is a good one, I swear. So reserve your “what the hell is this guy talking about” until I make my case.

Let’s Watch a Random Anime (#1)

At the end of every month, I will get one random anime to watch and talk about. I have no clue what we’ll get. That’s kind of the whole point. First, let’s generate our series. I won’t have anything disabled. I want it to be truly random.

Why I Love Love in Horimiya

Horimiya has an incredibly simple premise. It’s about a popular girl named Hori and a gloomy guy named Miyamura who fall in love with each other.
