Rebellious Reviews: Spy x Family ~ Thoughts So Far

Hello, my little Rebels! It’s been forever since I’ve done with one of these eh? Well, I’m back with my Rebellious Reviews once again! This time I’m doing it on Spy x Family. Well, to be more specific I’m doing a Thoughts So Far seeing that I haven’t seen the whole thing just yet. I’ve seen up to about episode five. And already, I’m going to put my spoiler warning for the couple of episodes I’m using to review. So anything I talk about, just prepare beforehand my friends for spoilers.

Alrighty! Let’s get this thing started eh?


So, first off we get our super-spy Twilight beating up bad guys. As we get with almost every shonen anime. We are immediately shown his capabilities and it is cemented that he is one of–if not the best spy in the world. Then we are shown that for his next mission, he has to pull off something that he has never done and never thought of the possibility of doing–he has to take on the role of a family man. 

When I found out that was how this was gonna start the family in Spy X Family, I genuinely burst out laughing. It’s genius actually for a super spy that only knows how to kill and work by himself to take on the role of husband and father to get some information out of a high-ranking individual on the enemy side of the current war. 

See, the fact that he has to procure a family was entertaining in itself primarily because he has no idea how to act like a family man so every action whether it is talking to Anya his adopted daughter, or talking with his wife, is so awkward yet so precious. Couple that with how he always says he’s going to send Anya back to the adoption center, but after seeing a few episodes of him interacting with her, you totally know that there’s no way he’ll be to send her back. Plus, with Anya’s telepathy, she won’t let him. 

How he gets his “wife” is pretty ironic in the sense that the woman that he picks, is a world-renown assassin. Let’s see how that plays out when her secret is inevitably divulged eh? Someone bring the popcorn cause that will be a helluva episode.

I have yet to see how they do with the school interview, so I can’t say much on that, but so far all of the interactions we’ve had with our unlikely trio are undeniably adorable and hilarious. I was taken by surprise by how much I actually like the plot so far. 

Score 10/10


The basic design of the characters makes the anime endearing in a way. Plus how they use colors and shadowing to show a character’s change in personality and emotions is quite creative in my opinion. Plus I just love Anya’s design she looks really adorable. If I had to change one thing though is add a little more detail. Not too much that it loses the endearing cuteness that I first talked about, but it just gives it a little more oomph so to speak. 

Score: 9/10


I think this category is going to get a natural ten out of ten even after I come back and review it after I watch the whole series. Each character is just brimming with their own unique personality. Even the side characters have their own spark to them. 

Twilight, or Loyd Forger as he is called, already has a pretty good character base. We get to know he is a determined man who always gets the job done and is a master of disguise. Then as we go into the second chapter we already have some good character development thanks to little Anya our cute little six-year-old telepath. She definitely keeps him on his toes, because what six-year-old wouldn’t? But seeing how he interacts with her is so precious. He keeps saying that he’ll take her back to the orphanage once he’s done with this mission…haha yea, no way is that happening. With each episode, you can see how attached he is getting. 

As for the woman who he convinces to be his wife–Yor also known as the well-known assassin Thron Princess. But, of course, Loyd has no clue. Anya of course does but I highly doubt she’ll let that slip anytime soon. I really like her character. At first, she seems not too much of an interesting character, but as we get to know her–from what I have seen in about two episodes, she’s starting to become an interesting character. I am quite curious to see how her character will develop as the story proceeds.

Score: 10/10                                                                                                                                                            


I absolutely love the opening and the closing song of this anime. It’s adorable and plus just the way it is, it tells a really cute story. That’s another reason why there’s absolutely no way Loid will be able to give up Anya or his wife.

Score; 10/10

All in all, this has been a joy to watch so far, I’m really looking forward to how the story progresses and how exactly are they going to pull this whole “Family” thing off. I’ll definitely be making a second review for the entire anime so keep your eyes open!

Total Score: 39/40

That’s all for now…

The Bell And Why It Goes Through Hell

It has a sleek shape and a beautiful color palette and to top it off it has a clock face on it! In my opinion, that makes this (The Bell) a really cool-looking claymore. But, the sad thing is that when many Genshin players think of The Bell, they immediately diss it. For this, I don’t understand why. So, even though many may disagree with this article today, I am going to offer up some of my own opinions as to why I think using The Bell can have its advantages. Especially if used properly. So let’s get started, shall we?

First off, let’s talk about that shield it gives us eh?

It triggers about every 45 seconds and acts as a great shield to block damage. Plus, every time this shield is activated, the character that has this claymore equipped gets an increase in damage. The amount increased varies on how many times you have ascended it. But, even at a Rank 2 ascension, it packs a decent punch at 15 percent. And the amount of damage it can take (the shield) is dependent on the max HP stat. This percentage increase with each ascension as well. So, therefore the Bell makes a pretty good claymore for support characters and healing ones.

Sayu, for example, I find utilizes The Bell quite well, to be honest. With her already good defense and healing stats (as long as you have a good artifact set), The Bell increases her capabilities and helpfulness so-to-speak for your team.

Now, I currently have Diluc using The Bell. It may not be the most efficient weapon for him at the moment, but I’ve used it since I first got it when I pulled Diluc at the same time. So for the longest time, it has served me well. Especially since–at least in my case, I can’t seem to get ahold of any claymores. It’s actually once in a blue moon occurrence, even with the Debate Club.

So all in all, I think people highly underestimate The Bell. Or at the very least, don’t know how to utilize it properly. Most probably think that since it’s a high-ranking weapon and a claymore, it is naturally supposed to be for tank characters or characters with a very high DPS. As I’ve explained, it’s not the case. It can be a wonderful weapon for healers and support characters. Even with Noelle, it works quite efficiently. So I highly suggest not overlooking this weapon and enhancing it at least a rank or two. It could come in handy if you pull a healer or support.

Well, that’s all this Fae has to say,

Powerful Women in Anime: Yona of the Dawn

*Warning: Slight spoilers for Yona of the Dawn ahead

Strength derived from strife. Power derived from loss. Love derived from betrayal. Friendship derived from exile. Yona had to deal with all of this and lost so much but gained that much more in return. Forced to grow up from just a carefree sixteen-year-old girl without a care in the world and only worried about how unruly her beautiful red hair was, to a fierce warrior with a group of powerful friends who will follow her to the ends of the earth and help her obtain her one goal: take back her beloved country from the man who murdered her father, the king. And was once the one she called the love of her life. 

Yona in Yona of the Dawn is such an underrated character in an underrated anime. She’s powerful because of all of the things she had to face and go through. At the age of only sixteen, she had to witness her childhood crush and cousin kill her father and then flee from the only place she knew, the only place she had ever called home just so she could stay alive. Sure she had Hak with her, but even though she had him by her side and then one by one, the dragon warriors to help her on her quest of taking back her kingdom, the emotional healing, and growth that she had to go through was purely on her own. No one could help her with that. 

I chose to write about Yona because seeing that it’s International Women’s Month, I thought what better way to celebrate it than showing off one of the many strong ladies in anime. Yea, I could have chosen to write about Erza Scarlet, Ochaco Uraraka and the other ladies of MHA, Celty Sturluson, or even Nobara Kugisaki, and maybe I will in the coming days–International Women’s Month does go on for a month after all and even then why can’t we celebrate them all the time? But I digress. The fact is, I could have chosen to write about any one of those amazing women in anime first, but I chose to write about Yona because of all of the things she had to go through in such a short time, her personality, and the fact that this amazing girl doesn’t get enough credit in general. She and her anime are highly underrated. I can even bet good money on the fact that some of you who are reading this, probably didn’t know of Yona of the Dawn or at the very least never seen it. That’s why the spotlight is on her today.

What could I possibly say from what I have already said? I don’t want to give away the whole anime, but I do want to point out some of the trials that she has faced that make her the strong young woman that I am proud to write about; probably the biggest thing is that she kept going. No matter what she was feeling, how hard the task was to find the Dragon Warriors that she was prophesied to be with. Or how long her journey was. Or even the fact that she felt inadequate, so she would train long into the night, firing arrow after arrow so she could protect the ones she loved. Not a single care for herself, but for her friends, the ones she came to know as her family. She. Kept. Going. Yes, she had Hak by her and one by one each member of her little ragtag crew, but the thing is, even though each one gave her strength in their own unique ways, it was purely up to her to accept it and run with it so-to-speak. Yona could have just run back to the castle and accepted her fate or even just given up and refused to take another step. But she didn’t. 

That’s why I admire Yona and the anime itself. She and the storyline are incredibly powerful. Showing that no matter what happens in life, if you keep going no matter how painful life’s circumstances may be, you will come out on the other side stronger. I highly recommend this anime. Plus the chemistry that is between the whole group–Hak and Yona especially, is just too damn cute. 

Well, that’s all this Fae has to say. Be sure to be on the lookout for more powerful women in anime articles…

The Collison of Costume and Fashion ~ Male! Cruella De Vil x Fem! Reader

You gaze out of the window of the stretch limo as the scenery of the suburbs continues to pass you by signally the ever-nearing closeness of the city. You shake your head in disbelief. Who knew I’d be in this situation just because I refused to give up my perfectly comfy spot at a table in a park no less. You think. And this event only happened just a single day ago.

“This is a perfect design to go with the cosplay I want to do for the upcoming cosplay contest.” You mutter to yourself as you lean back in your chair, taking in the crisp air of your favorite park in your hometown. It has always been a great place for inspiration for you ever since you were little. Plus, it helps that you only lived a few blocks down from it.

With all of the surrounding trees bunched up like the area was encased like a forest, and the light and senseless jabber of the little kids nearby playing pretend on the Jungle gym seeing who “King of the mountain” could be or who was the bravest to do the fanciest tricks. Ah to be young again. But then again, you wouldn’t trade your experiences for the world. Without them, you wouldn’t be the aspiring costume designer you were today.

You went to look back down at your sketchbook and were about to continue on with your design, when your thought process was interrupted by the silkiest, deepest, and dare you say it, the sexiest voice you’ve ever heard in your entire life.

“You there, girl. You’re in my seat. Off you go.” The sexy voice demanded.

Ah hell no.

No one tells you what to do. Especially not in the middle of a very productive inspiration session. You placed your drawing pad down beside you for a brief moment and you found yourself staring all the way up to meet the stranger’s face dead on. You could easily tell this guy was some kind of prima donna. Black Armani shoes, tailored slacks, a white button-up with a blood-red vest, and a, what you hoped to God was a faux fur mink coat draped around him. His fashion sense though wasn’t exactly what drew you in though. NO, it was that perfect alabaster skin, the wry smirk on his face those piercing blue eyes that seemed like they were devouring you with each passing second. And last but most certainly not least, his monochromatic hair. One part was perfectly styled and coifed being white in color. While the other side was much like the other side except it was jet black.

You find yourself taking a deep breath just to steady your hummingbird-like heart. Then you try to pair his smirk with one of your own. “I don’t see your name on it, mister. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some drawing that needs to be finished.”

“Snarky little thing aren’t you?” He remarks with an eyebrow raised.

You just click your teeth in response. “I’ll take that as a compliment.”

Before you were able to get back to your own work though, your cellphone rang. Pulling it out to check you mutter a few curses under your breath. It was work. Apparently, there were a few more call-outs than usual at the boutique and they needed you asap. You start stuffing all of your things into your purse hurriedly trying to get to the boutique in time. If you were late, you’d never hear the end of it.

“Well, it looks like you get your wish after all. Work calls.” You mutter as you dash off of the bench completely forgetting the fact that in your rush you forgot to put your sketchpad in your bag as well.

The man picks up the book and flips through it for a minute, a curious smirk gracing his features as he does. “Well, it would seem, Ma Cherie, you have more to you than just a little snark.”

“So you see Miss (Y/n) …Miss (Y/n)?”

The voice of the assistant of the pompous but unfortunately very handsome fashion designer—who you just barely learned was named Cruello De Vil brings you out of your reverie.

You turn your head to face the wiry brunette. She had light green eyes with a soft face. She looked like a very kind-hearted person but considering who she worked for there was definitely more to meet the eye.

“Hm? Oh, sorry. My mind was just wandering back to what started all of this. Me basically telling your boss to go to hell, forgetting my sketchbook, him finding it, and now me being captured from my work the very next day to become some sort of personal designer/muse or whatever he wanted of me.”

The woman gave a soft chuckle. “He wants you to be his new Chief Costume designer. It’s a new position Mr. De Vil decided to give his fashion line just recently. And we gave you back your notepad once we brought you in here.”

You let out a snort. “More like dumped it into my lap.” You look down onto your lap and brush a thumb over the cover. This thing contained your dreams, the very thing you wanted to do all of your life. Any time you lacked inspiration for any of your other tasks you would draw and create new costumes. Maybe they never got created, but just knowing you had the plans were enough.

“So, you were saying…”

“Oh, that’s right I never told you my name. It’s Katerina. And what I was trying to tell you Miss (Y/n),”

You interrupted her. “Just (Y/n) is fine.”

She nods and smiles. “Alright. I was trying to tell you that when we get to the building that Mr. De Vil is currently occupying, I want to give you a heads up that with his designers he can be quite the finicky man,”

“You don’t say.”

Katerina chuckles. “Though, I highly doubt you will have much of a problem judging by how he practically bit anyone’s head off anyone who dared come near that sketchbook of yours yesterday.”

That threw you. Why would someone so obviously pompous and full of himself be so protective of your sketchbook? You didn’t know much about this man—hardly anything for that matter, you were always one for being more into cosplayers and Broadway names than fashion designers. That was your mom’s bread and butter so to speak. But from the info you found out from her after you got her to calm down and stop asking if you were ok and then what he was wearing, he was even more pompous and self-serving than what your first impression was, to begin with.

“Well, that should be an interesting experience then.” You mutter.

The next thing you know, you’re slowing down to a crawl and stopping in front of a very ritzy building. The door of the limo swings open and the driver holds the door for both you and Katerina. “After you mademoiselle.” The chauffeur says.

You take a deep breath and step out of the limo and stare up at the towering building. It was at least Thirteen stories high. “Well, here goes nothing I suppose.”

Rebellious Reviews: Pokemon Legend of Arceus ~ The Game So Far

An open-world Pokémon game, that’s what all of the Pokémon fans have been waiting for. The newest Pokémon game: Legends of Arceus. It’s only been out for a short time but it’s become a huge hit. But how good is it? Well in this review I give y’all my thoughts on it so far. So, let’s get to it eh?


So far from what I’ve played, it’s a pretty fun story. Your character is either time traveled from present-day Sinnoh to years in the past when it was Hisui. Or! My other theory is your character is iseakied into the Pokémon world. Then with how you get to experience the galaxy research team and help them out, it has led to many interesting adventures dealing with tribes and Pokémon that definitely make it a fun game to play. I’m still a bit of a skeptic because this new story mechanic is definitely from what I’m used to but I’m sure with time, it’ll grow on me.

Score: 9/10


I’ve gotta say, I’m actually impressed with the characters it’s pretty cool to see the ancestors of the current character in present-day Sinnoh. All though they seem a tad lackluster, then again I’m only at the beginning so in my next review perhaps my view will change.

Score: 6/10


I actually really love all of the gameplay mechanics. Especially the way we can catch Pokémon and battle. It feels like we’re actually put into the game with the things we’re able to do.

Score: 10/10

Fangirl lvl:

Feeling like you’re in the game for real? Check.

Beautiful graphics? Check.

Open exploration? Check.

Score: 10/10

Total Score: 36/40

Overall, it’s not a bad score, Though I think once I play more of the game this review will change. But I’m sure there will be another review with different thoughts. After all, I myself was looking forward to this game. But let’s see if that is true or not eh? What are your guys’ thoughts so far? Do you agree with me on the current review? I’d love to hear your thoughts?

That’s all for now…

You Can Be A Hero! It All Comes Back Around.

Before we get started, I just want to provide a quick warning…If you have not read the most recent chapter of the My Hero Academia manga and do not want spoilers, DON’T READ THIS ARTICLE JUST YET! Elsewise, go right ahead my friends!

Well, now that we have that out of the way, I have never seen a more beautiful and heart-clenching way to bring a central idea of a manga all the way full circle and present a foil at the same time. What do I mean exactly? Simple. When Deku confronts Aoyama and Aoyama is saying that for what he did, he feels like he is the worst person and he is truly a villain, Deku says these words: You can be a hero! Sound familiar? I sure hope so. Because at the very beginning of My Hero Academia All Might said these exact words to Deku. You can be a hero.

It all comes back full circle with that single utterance. It boy, was it powerful. I’m excitedly awaiting what happens in the next chapter and how Aoyama reacts to Deku’s words. Because clearly based on the reaction of Aoyama, those words had a major effect on him. I’m honestly not surprised though because if you think about it, he’s the perfect foil for Deku.

What I mean by this is if Deku never heard those words from All Might and if he would have never given him One For All, Deku might have just led the exact life that Aoyama had to live. Turning to All For One and doing his bidding. But, as some fanfictions have gone he would have gone down a much more sinister path.

It’s really quite interesting to think about how those two roles could have easily been flipped. That’s how usually a foil works. Bakugou could have gone down that path if he didn’t have Deku by his side in my opinion. I believe he would have had the guilt of telling Deku all of those fowl things back in middle school with having the knowledge that he turned. So really, it’s very good, our cute, little, shy broccoli boy has been the hero of this story.

Well, that ends today’s analysis! I hope y’all enjoyed and I’d love to hear y’all thoughts!

My Hero Academia and the Case of the U.A. Traitor

The newest chapter of the My Hero Academia manga, is something else, to say the least. But, my friends I must give a warning that this whole article will be one big spoiler if you haven’t read the latest chapter of the My Hero Academia Manga. So, with the warning given, we shall continue on!

We all know with the last chapter that our awesome class 1-A is training very hard and improving their quirks even more seeing that All For One is still out there. Weakened, but still very much out there. But, what really comes as a shock is with this chapter we finally find out who the U.A. traitor really is. Some of the fandom have called it, but some have also been shocked by this reveal. That includes yours truly.

Now, who exactly is the U.A. traitor? None other than mister flamboyant himself: Aoyama. See, this took me by surprise because I thought they were just bluffing about there being a traitor, but in the chapter we see a very distressed Aoyama talking to his parents about the fact that he doesn’t want to take orders from All For One anymore and he wants to save him and his parents from having to be his lackeys just cause they owe him for giving Aoyama his quirk. Which makes sense why he feels such a kinship with Midoriya.

If you look back at all the events that have happened in the anime thus far, it actually makes a lot of sense. First, we have Aoyama saying that he has issues with his quirk, that it “leaks out” if he doesn’t’ wear his support belt. This is proof that his quirk wasn’t built for him. Because in fact, it wasn’t, All For One gave him it in exchange for his and his parent’s loyalty. Plus, he has said many times that if he uses it—his quirk—for too long he hurts his stomach another factor showing that his quirk was indeed not initially supposed to be for him.

There’s another fairly interesting point that if you don’t think about it, you don’t put two and two together. But with this new information about who Aoyama is, it makes quite a bit of sense. Aoyama’s hero name and how he acted at the Pro hero license exam.

Can’t Stop Twinkling and how he was a beacon of light to draw everyone to him at the first trial so his classmates could pass. The hero name, I believe he chose it because he wanted to believe that even though he wasn’t born with that quirk, and that he had to side with villainy for the safety of him and his family because of said quirk, he could still be a bright light amongst all of the darkness he has found himself in.

As for what he did for his classmates at the license exam, I believe that he did that so he could somehow make up for what he knew he was doing to them. That’s why I believe that even though, he may be the U.A. traitor I don’t think he is a bad guy per se. He just got roped into a bad situation that he had no control over, and he is trying to make his way through it. And now that Midoriya and the others know, I hope that they can get him out of that situation and help him to heal from what he was made to do.

That’s all from me for now everyone, I hope you enjoyed this article!
