Embracing Your Inner

Monday, Jan. 8th –
Hello again, Giga-Friends! Hope your new year is starting out well. Luckily for us here, where I work, we’re going through an inspection very soon! . . . Wait, that’s not lucky. Whenever someone mentions the word “inspection” everyone, no matter where you work, starts to freak out. Though, where I work it should be a standard thing by now . . . Though I can already see some supervisors putting the lesser workers on sweeping duty to keep them out of sight (out of mind).
ALERT! Awesome Games Done Quick 2018 has started! This year they are raising money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation! Let’s let loose and have fun, my gamers!
On a different note, I’ve been playing a lot of Fate/Grand Order (big surprise) and the U.S version has finally released the “Saber Wars” event that I’ve been so eagerly awaiting. Partially because I love the Star Wars references in the event, partially because Mysterious Heroine X is the best
Assassin Saber in the universe. . . AND I ROLLED HER! WOOOO! It was a good week, guys.
I’ve also been playing a lot of the Hyperdimension Neptunia series because I am just that kind of weab trash. I ADMIT IT! I have been a fan of the series since it came out on PS3, but I’ve never had a chance to sit down and play through all of them. Fortunately, during the Steam Christmas sale, Hyperdimension Neptunia 1; Rebirth was on sale for about a dollar or so, so I grabbed it and started playing. Though I’ve beaten the original, playing Rebirth is like a completely different experience. The characters are more fleshed out, none of them really overlap, and it’s all around a bit more fun (also the story is way different, that’s a thing too). I love games like this because, when you have a bad day, you can just hop in, get a few laughs, grind a few levels, and call it a day. I do recommend it on the weaboo factor alone. A Good amount of fanservice, physical or otherwise, never killed anyone either.
NOW ON TO ANIME!
I’ve finally finished all my anime reviews for the Fall season of anime. There were some really fun ones that I highly recommend, like Mahoutsukai no Yome or Garo -Vanishing Line-. But, there were also some really bad ones like Infini-T Force or . . . *shiver* Dies Irae. My writing is pretty amazing, if you haven’t already seen for yourself (lie), so -shameless plug-.
One I didn’t get a chance to write about was Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru. The second season was very good being comprised of two parts: Washio Chapter and the Hero Chapter. The first was a look into the past of one of our main girls and how she came to be in the original season. It’s a prequel that kicks you off balance with cute slice of life stuff and then throws you into a pit of despair when the girls are faced with the reality of what they are really trying to stop.
I highly enjoyed it, and after all the terrible things those girls went through, I’m really satisfied with the happy ending they got. Though I did do a review on the first season, I didn’t get a chance to do one on this new season which was very well split into two parts. If you ever have a hankering for a dark magical girl show, much like Madoka Magica, you can find a good show in this one.
Anyway, that’s it for me today Giga-Friends. I hope you have a great day and an even better year! -J.R
