Essential Android Apps

It's been a while since I upgraded to an Android phone and I thought I'd share some of the apps that I find invaluable. The downside I find with Android is there are fewer quality apps i.e. well designed user interface, few bugs and fulfils its goal well. And to top it off, they're usually buried beneath a huge range of rubbish and spam...


Steins;Gate Official Materials Artbook, Q&A

I've become such a fan of Steins;Gate's story after playing the game I decided I had to find the "official materials" artbook. Unfortunately, since the book was published for the original Xbox360 game 2 years ago and Huke's artwork is so popular, it seems to be sold out everywhere. Fortunately, Amazon JP managed to restock the 2300 Yen...


Steins;Gate - Story Synopsis & Game Mini Review

Interest probably grew in the Otakusphere towards Steins;Gate because of Black Rock Shooter since it is illustrated by the same artist Huke and, I admit it was the art that caught my eye in the first place when I saw an article about the game. Then it was the story line. Since I can't discuss the game spoilers in the forums I might as well...


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...

You could say it's a spin-off title based off a side character from one of their more popular franchises, Persona 3 Portable. Vincent Brookes is a 32 year old man being pressed into the dreaded question of marriage by his fiancé...


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...


Hand Warmer Gadgets ::

Happy New Year, readers! How's your part of the world been and how have you been spending the holidays? Snow's all melted here leaving lots of grit and a muddy looking ground. Not a pretty sight. Always wanted to try one of these reusable hand warmer gadgets considering how cold it can get in Scotland but, never really got round to picking...


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...
