My name is Digibro, and I’m a blogger, both passionately and professionally. I consume and write about media of many kinds, but mostly I blog anime.
My Sword Is Unbelievably Dull has been around for nine+ years and always primarily concerned itself with anime and the surrounding cultures, through a heavy filter of my personal life and interests. These days, the scope of topics is broadening.
Because the site has been around for so long and has so many posts, it can be difficult to navigate, and there are lots of outright bad posts. The easiest way to find what you’re looking for is by using the categories and the search bar. I apologize in advance to anyone who accidentally reads my shitty early posts. Just remember that I was fifteen when I started this site.

If I introduced myself simply by saying ‘I’m back’, would it ring any bells, Digiboy?
hey , I got onto your blog and the first thing I read was a post from your younger brother victor I guess ? well he discussed all sorts of anime and I really enjoyed it but unfortunatly I couldn’t find any more , would you maybe consider giving him another shot :) his criticism on anime was honest and somewhat hard yet very funny and enjoyable
thx for your time and don’t judge if I made grammatical mistakes I’m belgian :) bye xx

Hello, anime fans!
My name is Natalie, I’m a creative writer at Viewster.com. We have added new content to our anime category, so anime fans can now see great titles on Viewster, legal and free. The B2B announcement is here http://www.corp.viewster.com/news/press/viewster-to-begin-streaming-television-series-provided-by-funimation-entertainment.aspx but this is boring.
To find the right twist to make it stick with the bloggers is the difficult part … Can you help us to get this information to anime fans, featuring the news or accepting a guest post about the new titles? They are:
I would really appreciate your help,
Would you mind me calling you Digiboner
Hi i dont known how to contact Digi directly (without registering in some services i don’t want) but i have a request for Digibro. Anime related (but actually might originated in pony fandom :3)
It is about 2 anime universes/series. One of i’ve seen figurine in one of Digi videos (cure marine?), so he might known a little about this universe. So Digi what do you think about evolution of Pretty Cure universe over last 10 years from lov quality low budget girls show with Nagisa and Honoka up to this year uber epic Happiness Charge.
Second question is about Ojamajo Doremi (story arc of all 4 seasons) and its weird similarity to MLP by the fact that in both series magnificent and pretty queen is uber trolling mastermind who leave everything to her magic apprentices.
(but i would leave 4chan version out of it, because they cut the story after first season)
Hi, same as the last commenter I just put this here because this was the easiest way without making an account somewhere else.
So YT termination problem: Looks to me that random trolls just really have a laugh ruining peoples livelihood right now. Yours is the 3rd channel in a few weeks I care about going through this shit and while I have no insights about Googles bizarre support system I see a pattern that those Community Strikes are too easily abusable and there are seemingly many more rules in place for Youtube content that nobody has ever heard about on the creators side…. as if Copyright Strikes were enough of a broken system already. You most likely know more about the DemoD+ story then I do but I would like to point you towards Re:Roll Gaming a smaller analytical / review gaming channel that got terminated the same way. There are 2 videos about the initial reaction to the confusion situation and one of the aftermath when he got his channel back which might help you pinpoint what went wrong or how to avoid all of this stuff in the future (if there even is a way to defend oneself against this kind of abuse -_- ) Seems like this guy was just luck to know bigger Youtubers with connections.
The fact that DemoDs channel even got killed twice in a row via this method at least indicates that Google bots one hand doesn’t even know what his other hand is doing and they really don’t care at all to protect there users. So if you’ve become a target of this trolling asshole for whatever reason expect more headaches in the future. :(
Wish you best luck
So I accidentally stumbled upon another even older and even less ambiguous of those random flagging cases and guess it won’t help with really getting anymore insight into this either (except how broken everything is) but still the more background information the better for you I guess:
Seems this is all just really big corporate BS if even a guy like him doesn’t get any information about what internet magic is going on here without this whole guy-who-knows-a-guy contacting. Also this whole talk about setting the video private to not anger the wrong people … dafuck O_O
What really got me about this is this rumor about this super flagger stuff (2nd video at the end) …. if that true then YT basically has set this up to be this strict in enforcement themselves and even gave away the ban hammer to 3rd parties to make their lives easier. (Do this companies get paid for doing this? -_-) Would at least explain why they are THIS cagey about explaining themselves about anything to anyone.
This almost feels like this will go on until someone powerful makes this into a court case about censorship etc. and anyone without a MCN is just royally screwed.
PS: If you’re now primary on “after dark” for the foreseeable future might want to correct links on there. At least twitter link is broken.
Added ya to my blogroll. Hope ya don’t mind. Lemme know if ya do and I’ll take it off.
Hey Digibro, I’ve been following your blog and youtube channel for a while and I don’t know if you do these kinds of things, but I linked you as one of my nominations for The Creative Blogger Award. Feel free to keep the chain going if you’d like, and I look forward to more of your content! Cheers!
I am a fan of Kirito and Asuna, in fact I’ve watched both season of SAO and I’ve read all the light novels because of then. I liked a lot your reviews of both seasons, I actually am watching Eureka Seven because you recommended it as a show with a strong romance sub plot… But, man, Eureka Seven is dreadful… the main characters suck, Renton is just a crying brat with no personality. God! I just want him toget killed by Holland or somebody but sadly he will survive the show… Eureka is just an annoying emo who happens to be a living thing… romance? are you serious? that “romance” is full of the most annoying clichés in japanese anime… and you said that their romance is a substitute for Kirito and Asuna’s romance… man you are sooo wrong with that. Eureka and Rento could be Kenshin and Kaoru, Naruto and Hinata, Ageha Yoshina and Sakurako Amamiya… they are just a generic fantasy shounen series couple. They start a relatinship almost at the end of the show, they make a big deal of just touching their hands… they get constantly interrupted when ate abour to speak their feelings… my God, they are just annoying and disgusting… I can’t believe that someone who said that Kirito and Asuna’s romance was a breath of fresh air was capable to recommend Eureka Seven as a substitue for that… I just can’t believe it
By the way, the only characters that I have liked it of Eureka Seven are Charles and Ray, actually thet were a nice couple… but guess what? They both get killed… shit happens I suppose… They are dead and Eureka and Rento survive… as I said too many cliches
Where is the phrase My Sword is Unbelievably Dull” come from?
I can across you site because I was looking for a Best of Ranma list. Thank you, I’m half way through it now!
how do i contact you directly?
By the Digibro, there is a really good analysis of No Game No Life’s main characters called “What’s In A Name – No Game No Life” on WordPress.com. I think you could get a better understanding of them if you read it.
Love the work you do, Digi. I love looking into anime and your stuff certainly always gets my interest.
I have just now watched your anime recommendations and i found them really interesting and/or insightful and i have jotted down a few titles that i either heard but never got to watch or didn’t even knew existed so i thank you for the referrals :)
I see that you and i have a somewhat similar taste after watching that video (so many beloved shows in common) so that made me curious when i noticed a couple of titles missing from there. So i checked the links at the bottom, watched your animelistings and saw that you dropped Busou Renkin and Vandread early on. As you state of course it is all a matter of personal filters that decide if one should watch or not a show but i highly recommend giving those two a second chance. They both have quite a few merits: Busou Renkin in character design, the underlying romance and Vandread for the interesting setting/plot, character development and romance. Both have good OP and ED and amazing climactic endings with quite a lot of pathos.
Thanks again for the recommendations and i hope that you’ll get around to watch those 2 as they are near the top of my favourites list.
I include my anime list for curriculum in case you are curious about my credentials :V

All hail James Huberty, my lord and savior who will bring justice upon the shit hole of Channel Awesome with billions of rifle and shotgun shells on Doug Walker and his entire crew threw their hearts, heads, and testicles with blood gushing out of them all over the studio leaving their corpses limped as he will then baptise their corpses with urine and gasoline burning them to crisp next to oxygen and propane tanks leaving their corpses and Channel Awesome with an explosion upon the HQ leaving them into ashes. And soon after, he will then come upon the grave of Jewwario and he will piss the remaining of his corpse, and leave his grave with burning flames on top of cow manure and a tombstone saying “NIGGA” #doxthechannel #swatthechannel
