the collection expands!

Here are more books from RightStuf that just came in today!


I’m not sure how I feel about the lettering used for Index, since the kind of messy Japanese logo is so iconic. I am, however, disappointed that Yen Press didn’t work with Funimation to have a consistent logo for all the franchise products.

3 continuing series, I’m glad I can keep my collection up to date while supporting both the American licensees and the Japanese licensors. The big one, however, is the Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer, a series I was really excited to see on that one online manga site, JManga, and subsequently disappointed to see them shut down. Thank god for Seven Seas, who are doing a spectacular job picking up great series! If you’ve never heard of this series, do yourself a favor and find a copy to read, it’s quite amazing.

fall 2014 anime – midpoint reflections

EDIT: Totally forgot about Akatsuki no Yona! Added into the review.

All right, with the various anime series hitting episode 6-7 now, we have reached the halfway point! Time to see how my predictions went.


First, a quick recap of what I thought I would be watching:

Amagi Brilliant Park – yep
Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo – interesting enough not to drop
Denki-Gai no Honya-san – eh, never felt inclined to watch past episode 1
Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works – obv
Garo: Honoo no Kokuin – never picked it up, though I might circle back to it sometime
Grisaia no Kajitsu – got halfway through the first episode and just never revisited it. I do hear it’s good, though.
Hitsugi no Chaika 2 – aww yeah
Inou-Battle – hell yeah!
Karen Senki – /vomit, wasn’t worth the time it took to watch the first episode
Log Horizon 2 – good times
Madan no Ou to Vanadis – great show!
Nanatsu Taizai – great adaptation!
Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso – amazing show
SHIROBAKOU – I hear it’s pretty good, but never got around to it
Sora no Method – wasn’t particularly impressed with ep 1
Trinity Seven – semi-dropped; the quality is so bad, but I still half watch it in case it gets better
Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete – never tried it
Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru – I liked ep 1 pretty well, but haven’t gotten around to watching more yet

More after the jump!

so much marvel

Been a week, but here are a couple more videos teasing upcoming MCU projects!

A short glimpse at both Ant-Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron, new footage for both.

…and a clip from Marvel’s Agent Carter, which will be airing in Agents of SHIELD’s time slot over the winter break!

In other news, I recently got Tears to Tiara II. The prologue is… really, really long, and there are only a couple battles, but there is a point where the story gets incredibly interesting. I look forward to playing it more!
