Why would you censor an M‑rated game?

Image Cred­it: Hiten from Pix­iv Hap­py Hal­loween, every­body! Ever since I’ve out­grown the tra­di­tion of dress­ing up in a spooky cos­tume and going door­­bell-to-door­­bell ask­ing for can­dy, I’ve instead made a new tra­di­tion for myself where I marathon spooky video games; my favorite among them being Japan­ese hor­ror games such as Zero, bet­ter known as […]

Happy Belated Halloween! (Project Zero/Fatal Frame)

Big giant NO Hope every­one had a Hap­py Hal­loween! Though more than a day late, I felt com­pelled to hon­or the hor­ror fes­tiv­i­ties we had this sea­son using this hum­ble lit­tle Japanophile blog of mine in some way or anoth­er. Rather than div­ing into some biz­zarro hor­ror man­ga by the likes of Itou Jun­ji and […]

Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie [Shinpen]: The Rebellion Story

The suf­fer­ing con­tin­ues… My inter­est in active­ly dis­cussing Puel­la Magi Mado­ka Mag­i­ca died down sig­nif­i­cant­ly dur­ing the past cou­ple of years. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the orig­i­nal ani­me series and enjoyed watch­ing both of the Puel­la Magi Mado­ka Mag­i­ca The Begin­ning Sto­ry and the Puel­la Magi Mado­ka Mag­i­ca The Ever­last­ing Sto­ry films, but […]

GARO’s getting an anime series?!

Here’s a Puel­la Magi Mado­ka Mag­i­ca par­o­dy of GARO’s episode pre­views to cel­e­brate I’m like, two months late on this, but I just heard that the live-action GARO fran­chise was get­ting its own ani­me that will air some time this year. I’m a pret­ty big fan of the series, and I always thought that the […]

12 Days of Anime, Day 11: Another favorite

I’m always look­ing for new series to adore. Which makes me even more dis­ap­point­ed when a series fails to impress me in some way, or be even mild­ly enter­tain­ing and mem­o­rable. Which is why I always try my hard­est to see the pos­i­tive sides to any­thing I watch, read, and play. There are qui­i­i­i­i­i­i­ite a […]

You Can’t Fool Me Twice! (Puella Magi Kazumi Magica: The Innocent Malice)

So I just got around to read­ing Puel­la Magi Kazu­mi Mag­i­ca: The Inno­cent Mal­ice, up to the lat­est chap­ter. Suf­fice to say, it starts out pret­ty hap­py, but since I’ve watch the orig­i­nal Puel­la Magi Mado­ka Mag­i­ca ani­me series, the quick shift to utter dark­ness did­n’t catch me off guard this time around. I have […]

Slave to the Deceiver, Magician Madoka

I final­ly got off my bum and watched the one “mag­i­cal girl” ani­me every­one’s been rant­i­ng and rav­ing about: Puel­la Magi Mado­ka Mag­i­ca.

Still stuck in Halloween (Ibitsu)

Holy effin’ balls. This is the creepi­est man­ga I’ve ever read. No bull­shit. Screw Hig­urashi. Screw Bat­tle Royale. Screw that High­school of the Dead BS. This is true hor­ror on black and white pages. I rec­om­mend every­one to kill their lights and read this (unless you some­how man­age to get a hold of the actu­al […]

Shiki 05

More plot-ori­en­t­ed shows should add an ele­ment of sur­prise to their shows and drop the episode pre­views alto­geth­er like Shi­ki. We all know by now that episode pre­views usu­al­ly spoil the crap out of us. Case in point: Dur­ing last episode’s cliffhang­er, I thought Tohru was going to die. At the start of this episode, […]

Shiki 04

The look on Nat­suno’s face sums up my thoughts. Damn, this show is doing a good job at mak­ing me tense, espe­cial­ly this episode. Return of the dead!
