An Update on Things

15 03 2014

Things are moving along, just slowly.

I’ve loaded up 5 new articles to the blog that will be posted over the next few Mondays and Wednesdays. I’ll be loading up some new “Anime Screenshot of the Week” posts to be updated over the next few Fridays as well. I plan to have enough content to last until Friday, April 4th, which is when I return from my trip and can start on some new content.

I leave on a trip to Japan on March 24th. I’ll be taking photos while I’m there and plan on a few articles when I return. I’ll also be finally moving the blog over to Dreamhost when I get back as well.

I’ve been having trouble keeping a regular schedule with updates, so I’m going to try and limit myself to three posts per week. One of these will be the weekly screenshot, the others will be articles, be it Top 5′s, Reviews, First Impressions, or lists. I would like to continue MMOverdrive as well, although that may be going to Sl33k depending on various things.

Just wanted to leave an update of where I’m at with everything as real life circumstances have pushed back a lot of my update plans.

3 – Problem Children Are Coming From Another World – Black and White by Iori Nomizu

Problem Children is an anime that caught me completely off guard. Not only was I not expecting to like it as much as I did, I was also not expecting it to bust out with an amazing OP theme.

The song is upbeat and rock oriented, the visuals are colorful and eye-catching, and the lyrics inserted into the visuals are interesting as well. The song is what really makes this one stand out though, as it is easily one of my favorites OP to one of the best animes of 2013. Read the rest of this entry »

Top 11 Anime OP Themes of 2013 – Part 1

21 12 2013

Well, its almost the end of the year, so I guess its time for a list or two from me. I’ve watched a lot of anime this year and felt like a list of my favorite OP themes seemed appropriate. Keep in mind that these don’t reflect my opinion on the shows themselves, just the opening song and visuals.

Blog Overhaul: Coming Soon

6 11 2013

I know its been a while since I’ve made a post here. Most of my gaming related updates have been going to Sl33k Studios.

The main thing I want to touch on with this post is the upcoming update of the blog and streamlining of the posts and information.  First of all, the blog will be moving to a new host. I’ll still be using WordPress, but I’ll be using it on my own hosting as opposed to hosted on the wordpress site. Their addition of random ads was the nail in the coffin for that decision. With this will come a new domain name, while I will make a post here redirecting it once the move is complete.

Games, Sports, & Semantics

14 07 2013

Many of you may have heard by now that the United States government has decided that League of Legends players can be deemed “pro athletes” for the purpose of obtaining travel VISAs to play in events. What you may not have seen is the fallout that has been pouring in to every comment section where this has been announced. Just one small example is the recent post on Did You Know Gaming’s Facebook page.

Seriously, go look at it. I’ll wait.

Basically this has turned into a full on flame war between the “Yay! All I do is play games and now I’m an athlete! Take that high school gym teacher!” and the “SPORTS ARE ONLY THINGS THAT REQUIRE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY, WHAT IS THIS SACRILEGE?!” crowds. With how polarizing the gaming community is nowadays, especially with the introduction of the “casual gamers” into mainstream gaming, this really shouldn’t be surprising.


Missing-the-PointThe big problem here is everyone is completely missing the point.

Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited Review

4 07 2013

Zettai_Karen_Children_The_Unlimited_03_JPG_650x10000_q85(CAUTION: This Review contains minor spoilers. Nothing major, but if you hate any spoilers, you’ll want to skip this one.)


Easily one of my favorite series airing last season, The Unlimited managed to draw my attention from the first episode and keep me interested throughout the whole series. In fact, I went into this series blind, knowing nothing at all about it, and after watching the first couple episodes and learning it was a spin off of Psychic Squad (Zettai Karen Children), I went back and watched the entire 52 episode first series. That isn’t something a series can get me to do easily, but the characters of The Unlimited have this air of mystery about them that just draws you in.

For those of you who, like me, know nothing of this series, Zettai Karen Children takes place in an alternate version of our world, where people with psychic powers exist and have been involved with goverment, military, and even shaped the conflict of past wars. The main characters of the original series, 3 girls known as “The Children” work for the japanese government organization know as BABEL as basically a special OPS team. Throughout the series, they conflict with Hyobu Kyosuke, a psychic who has been alive since World War II, who believes that human will never accept espers and creates a terrorist organization known as PANDRA to rebel against BABEL and the government.

The Unlimited is about that guy. You’re interested now, aren’t you? Read the rest of this entry »
