Not only is it nice when you’re watch­ing a bunch […]

Kids deserve quality entertainment too

Image Cred­it: しゅーいち from Pix­iv Does being aimed at an old­er audi­ence auto­mat­i­cal­ly mean an ani­me has a high­er like­li­hood of being high­er qual­i­ty? What about shows for chil­dren?

Sword Art Online The Expansion: FAMILY PORTRAITS

A game made for the fam­i­ly. While I haven’t par­tic­u­lar­ly been enjoy­ing the bla­tant harem-build­ing some of these side-sto­ries seem to be going for (they’re not that inter­est­ing, real­ly), they’re admit­ted­ly still decent­ly writ­ten.
