Yes, I’m reviewing an anime. Sue me.
And in case you’re wondering: this is not a comparison between the anime and the light novels, which I will read and review in the future. For now, I’m simply reviewing this as its own thing and not an adaptation.
Okay? Okay. Now where was I? Oh yeah, I should also mention this review contains spoilers, so go at your own risk if you haven’t seen or read Grimoire of Zero.
Warning: this review contains major spoilers for “We are the Ants”. And mentions themes that may upset some readers.
“There are things in the universe that are simply and purely evil. A warrior does not seek to understand them, or to compromise with them. He seeks only to obliterate them.”
As clichéd as it is to say, I do remember reading this back in high school, and really enjoyed the premise as well as the twists and turns given in Jay Asher’s iconic novel “Thirteen Reasons Why”.
Warning: this review contains spoilers to both “Openly Straight” and “Honestly Ben”.
Note to future self: make another Top 10 LGBT Young Adult Novels I Recommend List in the future.
The idea of implanting memories and forgetting our sins is a concept of science fiction that’s been debated to death, from popular movies such as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Total Recall and 50 First Dates to video games that embrace the idea such as Remember Me.

Let’s revisit a world I’ve grown fond of since finishing “Proxy” over a month ago, and that is Alex London’s sequel called “Guardian”. Before I begin, I should warn readers that despite everything I could, there is no way I can explain my thoughts on “Guardian” with bringing up significant plot details that occurred in the last book. It may not seem like a big deal to you guys if you haven’t read it, but believe me: I cannot talk about this novel without bringing up “Proxy” and the ending. With that said, what are my thoughts on the sequel of a young adult book I’ve grown to love?
