My Fourth Nendoroid Takes Center Stage

I guess I might as well just say it, I like idol anime. I don't know why. Maybe because it fills the same general function of harem anime(ie, get a large cast of attractive female characters of all different shapes, sizes, and personalities together in one place) but without a bumbling, idiotic main character to take… » 1/28/15 2:47am Yesterday 2:47am

Tears to Tiara 2 First impressions: Crouching TRPG, Hidden VN

Hello everybody! How was you extended weekend last week? Mine was pretty great. Got to play the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Demo with some of my friends, got my slimy mitts on a villager amiibo, and I finally dived into the all consuming time sink hole that is my games backlog. The game I dove into was Tears to Tiara 2,… » 1/25/15 9:03pm Sunday 9:03pm

Koda's Top 10 Winter Anime Openings

It's a new year which means a new season of anime and that in turn means a new group of anime openings for me to pass personal judgment on. This year I'm going to be doing things just slightly differently. For starters I'm going to be doing my seasonal OP lists in a format similar to how I formatted the list for… » 1/23/15 2:43pm Friday 2:43pm

A Visual Novel Fan's Opinion on Eroge

It seems like that the west has rediscovered the Visual Novel Genre, commonly referred to as Dating Sim. Due to this, there is a lot of stereotyping and confusion about the genre (including what to even call them). Recently on Kotaku, Patrica Hernandez wrote an article about eroge, which tried to explain what is… » 1/22/15 5:31pm 1/22/15 5:31pm

Protonstorm's Fall 2014 Anime Music Awards

Welcome! Welcome one and all, to my belated music awards! Every season, I load a new CD of anime music into my car, and my favorite full songs are the ones that make the cut. Unfortunately, a certain band released their music LATE, and it was going to be on this LIST, so that's why I'm so delayed here. Bear with me.… » 1/20/15 7:09pm 1/20/15 7:09pm

Rockmandash Reviews: Anime Backlog Review Gauntlet #1

When I write a review, I typically do so because I want to talk about it, and get my thoughts out about it. This works out well when I go into a work knowing that I want to review it, but there are times when trying to review and analyze something can lessen the experience, like killing a backlog. Today on Rockmandash… » 1/19/15 12:03pm 1/19/15 12:03pm

TAY Explores Comics: 6000

Every once in a blue moon, I go crazy. Not your stereotypical joker crazy, I but I get a crazy craving for human flesh. Joking aside, sometimes I just want to get the pants scared out of me and normally I hate getting so scared that it can be hard to sleep at night. Recently, I've been watching a lot of videos on Five… » 1/18/15 6:30pm 1/18/15 6:30pm

Don't Watch Fafner in the Azure: Exodus Unless You Saw The First Show

I'm a pretty big fan of Fafner. When I watched the first series last year, I found a series that will consistently find a place among my favorite mecha shows. So that's why I'm here to tell you that you have no excuse to watch this show without having watched the first show and sequel movie. » 1/15/15 6:28pm 1/15/15 6:28pm
