My latest piece for Anime UK News is an in-depth guide to the “Odagiri Effect” – where TV shows and other piece of media gain a large number of women followers because the male actors and/or characters are sexually attractive. The article covers Hetalia, Free!, Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!, Yuri!!! On Ice, and some non-anime related things such as BBC drama Poldark and novel Fifty Shades of Grey.
Pictured above is Joe Odagiri, the actor after whom the effect is named after.
The latest edition of MyM is out now. As part of our 2014 preview I’ve cover manga and other book releases coming out this year. Also I’ve been reviewing Nisekoi: False Love, Bloody Cross and Hetalia: AxisPowers.
I have enjoyed being able to write my “Beginner’s Guide to Anime” for On The Box, and I hope to continue writing more pieces in 2014 and interesting readers. If you have missed any, here is a collection of all the articles I’ve written throughout 2013.
