5 Centimetres Per Second One More Side Novel

Thanks goes to FallingStar for tweeting to me about this! I must have missed Shinkai's tweet about this somehow! It's been over 4 years since 5 Centimetres Per Second premièred in Japan and since then, it's been novelised and manganised. Now it's getting another novel, subtitled "One More Side" - But it's not a sequel. The original 5cm...


Catherine (PS3) Review, Atlus' First HD Title

Catherine is Atlus' first HD title from the Persona development team released for both the PS3 and Xbox 360. You could say it's a spin-off title based off a side character from one of their more popular franchises, Persona 3 Portable.

Dundee, D-CON 2011

I know it's been 2 weeks since D-CON 2011 but better late than never ^^; Never been to an Anime convention before so I thought I'd run along to the annual event based at the University of Dundee, D-Con for this year. It was my first time in Dundee and instead of noting down directions or following signs, I used GPS on my Android phone to take me...


Arakawa Under The Bridge, Ichinomiya Family Heirloom Tie Review ::

I was bored of all the ties I keep seeing at the local stores so I thought I'd try to find something unique. When I watched Arakawa Under The Bridge I thought to myself, "I want that tie!" Sure enough, I found the Ichinomiya Family Heirloom Tie by Cospa at the AmiAmi store although it wasn't back in stock until December. For 4725 Yen, I was...

AMP3 Player’s Surprise Santa Sack 2010

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Readers! Up to anything this year? Me, just some quality gaming time. As I mentioned before, I haven't really had any time to game since starting full time work so these days it takes me a lot longer to finish a single game which is why you don't see any reviews any more. However, it's not a bad thing...


Autumn Lights ::

This was shot before the little stroll in Edinburgh. I came across the scenery on the way home on the bus and thought, "I need to come back to shoot this!" I liked how the street lights managed to bring out the colours in the leaves and if you weren't sitting on the top deck of the bus or happen to look up, I doubt you would notice this. Being busy...


Autumn Stroll, Edinburgh

It feels like a while since I wrote something for this blog. You will probably have noticed I haven't been writing for my blog much lately nor have I done any more translations. The reason behind that is that I am very much preoccupied with my full time job these days. That said, I still play games and watch the odd Anime show... Just not as...
