Believe it or not, girls with animal ears are cute… Too bad Yaya didn’t wear the cat ears.

Chou Megami Shinkoku Noire Gekishin Black Heart - First Impressions

Chou Megami Shinkoku Noire Gekishin Black Heart – First Impressions

Konachan.com - 160336 hyperdimension_neptunia kazenokaze noire

In the past year, Compile Heart and Idea Factory has been expanding the Neptune franchise by making various spinoffs in order to reach a wider audience. Last year, they made an idol simulator, which left a disappointing taste in my mouth. This year, they released a strategy RPG featuring Noire (Chou Megami Shinkoku Noire Gekishin, 超女神信仰ノワール激神) and planning to release an action game, which is…

Happy 25th Birthday!

Artist: Kisugi Akira

It seems like yesterday since I turned 24 years old. Like last year, it has been a calm year thus far except for the couple big snowstorms. Not to mention, I have been focusing primarily on learning new vocabulary and Kanji from playing video games and memorizing them through flash cards. I am still planning to tackle grammar needed for JPLT (will focus on N3 next year) with…

Yep, Usagi managed to crash the computer before she can run the brainwashing program.

Yep, Usagi managed to get the blue screen of death from banging on the keyboard so hard before she was able to run the brainwashing program.

While I’m two episodes behind Sailor Moon Crystal, I am shocked that she still doesn’t know how to use a computer in 2014!

Changing Views on Legal Streaming and Decline of Episodic Blogging

Changing Views on Legal Streaming and Decline of Episodic Blogging

Artist: まさしょう

Artist: まさしょう

For a while now, I have noticed a downward trend in the blogosphere since 2012 as episodic blogging is coming out of favor with bloggers either giving blogging or forego other types of content such as essays, analysis and reviews. With Hanner’s Anime Blogthrowing in the towel just a few months ago, I wonder if episodic blogging has outlived its usefulness in an age where legal…

Atelier Ayesha Plus - Final Review

Atelier Ayesha Plus – Final Review

Koei-Tecmo’s acquisition of Gust has left a bad taste in most fans’ mouths when they decided that they are not going to include dual audio in Atelier Ayesha (I shared my thoughts on this issue in an editorial about localization issues I wrote early last year). Not to mention, there has been reports that they poorly handled Escha and Logy localization. Eventually, I ended up just…
