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...


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...

Summer Anime 2010 Preview ::

A number of short series just finished not too long ago including Senkou no Nightraid, Arakawa Under the Bridge and Working!! Really enjoyed the last two for their comedy and slightly less cliché cast of characters thanks to their odd traits. But time for the new season so lets have a look at ten of the shows running in Japan just now. When...


A Look at the Uniqlo Official Evangelion 2.0 Movie T-shirts ::

Went ahead and ordered a few official Uniqlo Evangelion 2.0 t-shirts from London's Uniqlo store which offers a one off, flat rate postage and packaging fee so if you're ordering, it's best if you ordered more than one item. Although most online stores offer free postage, Uniqlo doesn't but arrived the next day after dispatch. I was...

A New 5 Centimetres Per Second Site, Novel English Translation

I'm sure regular visitors amongst you will know how much of a fan I am of Makoto Shinkai's 5 Centimetres Per Second by now. After looking through how much information I've gathered about the movie, I thought this blog wasn't giving it enough space to organise so I've decided to create a sub-site for it to have all the content accessible in...
