April 14, 2019

Two weeks into the Spring season! Not that you’d know it, the weather is still freezing. Best that I share my final thoughts on this year’s Winter series, before I forget all about them. 😛

Cosplay photos (Minamicon 2019)

March 31, 2019

Back in November, I shared details of my planned cosplays for Minamicon 25, which fortunately both went according to plan! Here are some of the better shots:

All professional photos were taken and uploaded free of charge by Nert (http://www.manylemons.co.uk/) or Pouncy (https://www.flickr.com/photos/pouncy_g452/), so be sure to check out their pages to see some of the convention’s other wonderful costumes. 😀

500 Word Game Reviews – Elder Sign: Omens

March 16, 2019

This month’s game was SUPPOSED to be Realms of the Haunting, but the 1996 DOS game turned out to be too spooky for me! Couldn’t even make it past the first few rooms, didn’t even run into any enemies, it just freaked me out too much from the get go. 😮

So while I get settled into playing some tame city builder instead, here’s an old review which I haven’t posted here yet. Horror-themed board game conversions, I can just about handle. 😛

Winter 2019 Mid-Season Rankings

March 3, 2019

Somewhat belated, as I fell behind on a lot of shows and have only fully caught up this weekend. Which makes this more of a 2/3 season rankings post than anything. 😛 But there’s still time for my thoughts to change in the next four weeks, so here we go!

500 Word Game Reviews: Age of Wonders II

February 24, 2019

Not all turn-based strategy games can be Heroes of Might and Magic III, but it doesn’t hurt to occasionally look at some of the other franchises which were around at the same time. 🙂

Another poll closed!

February 17, 2019

Many thanks to everyone who voted in last week’s series poll! 😀 Nice to see that each series got at least one vote, but the winner with three is Brain Powerd!

152811

Here’s hoping for some great sci-fi/mech action, nice character designs, decent character personalities, and a vaguely coherent plot? 😛 I’ll make a start on it today~


Poll: Choose what series I watch next! 2019 Edition

February 10, 2019

A month and a bit on from my New Year post, the whole ‘watch more old anime’ goal isn’t quite going according to plan. So, time for another blog poll! Because the thought that my readers might be eagerly waiting to hear my thoughts on a series should provide the motivation I need… whether anyone is actually interested or not is neither here nor there. 😛

[HorribleSubs] Action Heroine Cheer Fruits - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.51_[2017.12.15_16.31.12]

I approve of your opposition!

And so, here’s another five shows from my backlog:
