My name’s FiddleTwix or Twix for short. I started doing anime reviews on a forum I moderated nearly 15 years ago and decided to make this blog to gain better footing as a reviewer and join up with a community who likes to do the same. I tend to review basically everything that I watch/read that is in any way related to art or animation. My main areas of focus are anime, manga and cartoons, but I have also dabbled in some video games related to anime, and I’m open to reviewing western comics and even books (related to anime/cartoons) in the future.

I watch both old and new content with just as much interest, though I am a bit of a sucker for the classics and nostalgia. I’m somewhat known for being ranty/rambling in my reviews, but have no question that I do love watching all things animation (if I didn’t, I would’ve stopped watching ages ago.) I just have a tendency to write……a lot, especially about things that interest me or spur a particular reaction in me.

My ‘specialties’ are Sub Dub Comparisons, which are breakdowns of the differences between bad dubs and their original Japanese counterparts, AniManga Clashes, which is my series where I break down and compare anime to their manga counterparts and determine which is actually better, Pokemon episode analyses, where I take off the nostalgia goggles and review every episode of Pokemon with an analytical eye, Disney’s Direct-to-DVD/VHS sequels, analyzing the designs and lore of every Pokemon in My Poke-Pinions, and reviewing shounen and shoujo shows step by step. I also hold special month-long reviewing events for Halloween and Christmas.

I try to upload every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, but if I miss these days I aim to upload three times a week anyway.

I hope you all enjoy my content, and if you have anything you’d like to discuss with me feel free to drop a comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Great review site, I look forward to checking it out more. I review a variety of movies and comics on my site, but I think I am beginning to focus primarily on anime and manga as well.


    • Thank you very much ๐Ÿ™‚ I really like your review site as well. You have a very clean and informative style of reviewing. I don’t really read comics, outside of manga, but I love learning about them. It’s also great that you branch out into various other mediums as well. I hope to add more in terms of western animation and maybe horror movies in the future, but my focus usually does stay with anime and manga. ^_^

    • Hello Again, Denny Sinnoh, well this seems to be another co-incidence because the same way i stumbled across Arria Cross, I stumbled upon you, too! Really wordpress IS getting smaller and smaller!!! Loved to see you here!


    • Thank you very much! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ll probably answer the questions when I get a chance, but I am also running out of blogs to nominate and questions to ask so I may have to bail out on that aspect lol. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. This is my first day actually checking out the WordPress blogging community. You’re the first blogger I checked out after my blogging alone by myself. Your site seems to have a few years under its belt and looks extremely polished. I love the variety you have for people to see. I’m just starting out, so it’s inspirational to see someone with your amount of success. Keep doing what you’re doing.

    • Welcome to the community! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you, I’m glad you like the place. Truth be told, I still have several areas to add a great deal of polish to (some places need sandpaper), but I think I’ve definitely improved over the years. I checked out your stuff, and you seem to be doing really great for yourself to! I love your sense of humor (You’re just Brock with open eyes lol), and you have a great writing style and format. I’ll definitely be following your gameplay posts. Keep it up! ๐Ÿ™‚


  4. I also tend to rant a lot and I completely agree, when you’ve got something to say, it’s much better to say it than leave it unsaid. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think it’s cool you watch old anime too. I’m always on the look-out for older suggestions, so I’m looking forward to that a lot. Happy blogging.
