Thoughts and excerpts from the mind of Jeannette Jonic

April Recommendations (3 of 4): Aleczandxr

I first stumbled across video essayist Aleczandxr while preparing for my Type Casting post on Riza Hawkeye of Fullmetal Alchemist. The depth he delved into another character from that show, Solf Kimblee, was incredible, especially given how much it allowed me to appreciate a character I honestly hadn’t cared much for nor understood well upon my first viewing of the show.

Aleczandxr frequently examines characters and themes from various anime, digging deep for some great insights. He’s one of few writers who can clearly express philosophy and other difficult topics while still putting it into terms I can understand. And it doesn’t hurt that his repertoire of reviewed anime has some of the greats such as Hunter X Hunter, Ghost in the Shell, Berserk, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and My Hero Academia.

Aleczandxr dabbles in some video game analysis as well, and his video analyzing his love for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess convinced me that I need to replay the game just to experience my own love for it all over again.

Or, if you’d rather stick with my stuff today instead of checking out someone new, how about a scene featuring my favorite couple, Jaranin and Isalaina? Check back in half an hour to read an updated version of a scene I posted on the blog a while back!
