Hi guys! As the post names sugguest I’ve done a bit of reconfiguration in terms of my sidebar’s content. In an attempt to be mor social I have linked ny Tumbr, Facebook and a newly-created Twitter near the top of the page. In addition, I have cleaned up the side bar and added a Blogs I Fallow widgets> This will allow me to simultaneously increase my readership and guide new readers to more great content. For mor site news keep your browser locked here.
Sorry for the lack of updates lately. But if you have been keeping up with your weather of late you will have , no doubt, heard of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Surficive to say I live in close proximity to th affected areas of thes storms. At current Irma is making secondary landfall not too far from my location. As such I am being made to hunker down in my home until it passes.
Unfortunately, this means a lack of content until then. For my reader in the path of the storm I urge you to seek shelter. A catagory 4 storm is hardly the sort of thing you would want to be stuck in. Fot those who have already felt Irma’s fury I pray you’re safe. I will be here once the storm passes and I hope to see you safe and sound afterwared
Thanks for understanding
I have recently been informed of someone else posting under my account. Please note that the latest casual Fridays post was not mine. While it used my graphics it was not written by me. I hjave not yet seen the Death Note movie. Whomever decided to crack my account placed tthis scathimg piece for seemingly no reason. Thankfully I have reported the hack and change my password since then.
Alright folks I feel like I need to clear the air on this paicular segment. AMV of the week was a wash. I don’t enjoy removing features but I feel this one was ill-timed and poorly maintained. I owe you guys better content than that, In-keeping with that qualiy standard I will be removing the feature outright until it can be relaunched with new features. Thank you for understanding.
Hi guys, its friday again and that means I get to kick off my shoes and share another tidbit of my life outside the realm of anime. Though I suppose today’s topic is related to anime in i quite a few respects. Today I want to tell you guys about the mobile game Fate/Grand Order. For thode of you who are not in the knoew the Fate franchise is one of my favorite long-running properties in anime. So of course when the a mobile game under the Fate banner I had to check it out..
The story is one you might expect rom the if you have watched any incarnation of Fate over the years. Another Holy Grail War has broken out, this time spanning history. Your job as a member of the mage oganization Chaldea you are tasked with saving humanity by intervening in each lesser grail war as a Master. Along the way you meet a cast of unique characters that come from almost every title in Fate’s long run. All of it is wrapped neatly of a visual novel as an homage the begining of the series.
What kind of Grail War would Grand Order be without a great set of servants? Assuredly Grand Order doe not disappoint in the slightest. Be they kings or fictional hero they are likely to be in the lineup. You’d better carry a rabbits foot though because most iconic servants like Emiya and Artoria are behind a rarity wall. While it iis no surprise the 1% drop rate for 5-star servants makes you really earn an iconic warrior. Worse yet, the game works on a random Gotcha
To be honest I love this game, but its not for everyone. If you dont have patience or spend materials too fast in games Fate/GO will penalize you for it. That being said, it is a fun ride for what little we have right now. At the time of this post We have the tutorial and the first two stories with the Oceanose chapter slated for October. which bums me out but I can wait. If you want to have me on your friend list my code is 026, 333,819.
If you’ve been a reader of mine long enough you will likely realize that I love anime and video games in equal measure. SAo, when one of my favorite games of all time gets an anime adaptation I am compelled by the deepest pits of nerdy obsessesiveness to take a look at it. Thus I began the trek back to Dracula’s Castle as I benge-watched the first few episodes. Much like its playable counterparts, the animated version of Castlevania does not disappoint. But, is it up to my standard for a good anime?
At the time of writing this I have viewed four episodes of the series. From what I have seen so far I can honestly say that it is a wonderful homage to the original. We see a key character of the game series in Trevor Belmont embodying the last son of the fallen family trope. He weilds the iconic consecrated whip Vampire Killer and does battle the way you might expect a Belmont to from the games. Additionally, other characters from Konami’s dungeon crawler Such as Symphony of the Night’s Alucard makes an appearance and joins Trever on his quest to kill Dracula thus creatibg a team fans have wanted for quite sometime.
While it does diverge from source material at times the show knows what it is. Castlevania is. by all rights, an action show with a slight occult feel. I need more of this series as I enjoy it greatly. I hope to do a review once the series is complete. Until then I will watch on baited breath.
It is Monday August 21, 2017 and I thought I would take a moment out of my day to help you guys find so deals on good anime.

FYE Anime Test Drive Collection
FYE is a newer vender to me though it has been around for sometime. Apparently they have anime classics in two episode sets called Anime Test Drive These are clearly geared toward newer fans who might need to see a few retro before diving headlong into the fandom. Whle the content is sparse it is smartly priced at around $8.00 USD. Even so you might be better off streaming at that price.
The Crunchyroll store always has good merchandise from DVDs to anime inspired apparel. This week’s deal is near and dear to my heart as they have a couple of pieces from my favorite anime up for grabs. The centerpiece of this deal is chibi figurine of Fate’s own Artoria Pendragon in full regalia . Secondarily, they are currently featuring a Men’s T-sh. Hurry though as this is a daily deal
