2018 Anime – Top 12 ED Themes

December 15, 2018

Ending theme list time! As ever, Youtube links (to the TV version of the song with animation where available) are in the titles~ [EDIT] Including #2 now, my bad!

I usually end up preferring EDs to OPs for whatever reason, could be the different tone that they usually bring (often less energetic and introductory, more sombre and concluding… if that even makes any sense)? This year is an exception, I’d say the openings just about win, but as this list will hopefully show, there were some good ending themes too!

500 Word Game Reviews: Thief Gold

December 8, 2018

Another game from my childhood, though I mostly just played the tutorial and first level of the original (non-Gold) Thief: The Dark Project, which was free on an old demo disc. When I did eventually buy the full game, I never managed to get past level 2. Time to fix that!

2018 Anime – Top 12 OP Themes

December 3, 2018

It’s December, so time to recycle the usual end of year posts~ 😛 Starting with the best opening themes, as is tradition! I may have only watched about half as many anime series than usual, but my list seems no weaker in spite of this – 2018 was a good year for OPs. 😀

As ever, Youtube links (to the TV version of the song with animation where available) are in the titles, so you can judge my taste in music for yourself…

Planned Cosplays for Minamicon 25!

November 4, 2018

It’s too early for mid-season anime thoughts, and I haven’t had the time to watch any more runner-up series from either of those two polls, so it’s time for a blatant filler post! 😀

500 Word Game Reviews: Zafehouse – Diaries

October 20, 2018

Halloween may still be over a week away, but try telling that to the zombie horde that’s rapidly gathering outside your home… 😛

As with many other newer games I’ve reviewed here, screenshots feature small text designed to be read at much higher resolutions than this blog format allows (I might get around to updating it one day!) – in the meantime, opening images in a new tab and deleting the ?w=450 part of the url will let you see them in full-size.
