Hypnosis Mic: Division Rap Battle Anime First Impressions (Episodes 1 – 3)

I have something I have to admit – I’ve never really enjoyed watching music themed anime. There’s nothing wrong with them, I’m just not the biggest fan of them. On the other hand otome and general mobile game anime adaptations can be a major hit or miss. So all the cards were against me on… Continue reading Hypnosis Mic: Division Rap Battle Anime First Impressions (Episodes 1 – 3)

Thankfully those fears were dispelled when the account tweeted earlier in September a sneak peek of their latest game – Wannabe Challenge. I noticed on their Twitter the game is marketed… Continue reading Day7 Announces New Otome Wannabe Challenge

Higurashi: When They Cry – Gou Episode 2 Review

After watching episode 1 of Higurashi New, I wasn’t entirely sure I’d stick with it. As I mentioned in my review, I wasn’t completely sold on the slice-of-life gags and the characters hadn’t really connected with me. But after watching episode 2, I’m really glad I gave the series another shot. The episode opens with a… Continue reading Higurashi: When They Cry – Gou Episode 2 Review
