Where to Watch Anime Online After Amazon Strike's Dissolution
Anime fans have been watching anime on the internet for decades. Even before it became legal, fans would stream anime through other means and this created a huge market for anime on the internet, with services like Netflix starting to take notice and offering anime to their subscriptions.

Just last year, Daisuki, a streaming service run by a Japanese cooperative company, also shuttered its service. Other than the major companies like Netflix and Amazon, where should anime fans get their anime fix?
Magic Trouble Shooting
What Is Magic (Vol. 1 Issue 1) Author Note: I originally wrote The Magic Trouble Shooting series in 2012 - 2014 and I left it alone. It was going to be sent to Richard Kaufman at Genii Magazine but I never got a response from Kaufman after pitching him the idea. My ideology and thoughts on magic have changed but I have not bothered updating - I want to leave the content of the series as it is as a benchmark to my own growth - I will probably revisit and the series with updates. Please enjoy and I'd love to receive feedback. Let's begin.

10 Anime Not from Japan
It's true that we take something that we like and change it into something that we love, and regarding cartoons and anime, it's no different.

Why The Valleyfolk Will Be the Biggest Thing on YouTube in 2018
It's often hard for a new channel to stick out on YouTube. YouTube's algorithm tends to cater to their bigger channels, so it's difficult for a new up and coming channel to find their footing.
