Within the Fissure

Alas, the time has come again to wrap up another season of Xbolt’s Anime Reviews by posting a few words about all the openings. Ghost in the Shell – I don’t really know what to say about this… It’s… Enchanting. Full Metal Panic! (Fumoffu? and TSR) – Not too bad. Of the three, I like […]

Press “J” to Scream TAAAAAAAAANK!!!

“The Sacrifice” Teaser If all goes according to plan, The Sacrifice will be out later today. And I’ll be playing it. I bet I could take on all three of those things. Everyone who’s played with me knows how great I am at taking down Tanks.

Last Song Well I sure hope this isn’t the last song. I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have any more songs to write about! This sounds very nice, regardless. I like what fatmanP did with Luka’s voice. I was really hoping for Rise & Set to appear in the ranking this week. […]


Now with twice as many exclamation points!! K-ON!! is, quite obviously, the sequel to K-ON!. I knew by the end of the first season that there would be a sequel. It just didn’t feel complete yet. Naturally, I was right. The first season was about the girls’ first two years of high school, and the […]

Autumn is Here

Because Princess Inada Is Scolding Me – Piano We’re in autumn now. Which means that it’s now time for the Aki sisters to shine. This song makes me happy. And hungry for baked sweet potatoes.

Time Machine This song was a collab between two producers. 164, and 40mP. This epic collab produced an epic song. Miku sounds wicked good here, and the opening is completely awesome. The weird Heart Sutra thing seems to be clearing out. Only two were left in the top 30. As if to celebrate, quite a […]

Rebuild of Evangelion

I caved. I wasn’t originally going to watch the new remake of NGE, since the original wasn’t exactly my thing. But I ended up watching it anyway… Oh well. Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone is the first in a series of four films that retell the story told in NGE. This first film is […]

Capitalism, Ho!

Recettear – An Item Shop’s Tale – Opening The tale of Recettear is a very good one. It was first published in Japan in 2007, and three years later, a small team of people decided to translate and release it to the English-speaking world. Back in July, the demo was released. And people played it, […]

Promise and Lie I especially like the intro/build on this one. CMB landed just outside the ranking at #31. Instead we have… we have… Ok, seriously. What the heck is up with ranks 1, 3, 7, 9, 14, 15, and 17? If there’s a joke here, it’s not very funny. So stop it. You are […]


I went to see Inception last month. And I thought it was a very nice piece of work. The premise alone was very interesting. A few weeks later, I watched Paranoia Agent. And that was cool. Then, I looked at what else the director had done. Paprika came up, and after reading the premise, I […]
