When Your Androids and Assassins Are Also Lolis

Monday, Jan. 29th –
Hello again my Giga-Friends! I hope your week is going well already. At least a little better than mine I hope! Ah, co-workers: can’t live with ‘em, can’t live without ‘em. I genuinely wonder how some of these people have the capacity to blink and breath at the same time though. . .
That’s enough ragging on my co-workers though, no one cares about work. Most of you, I’m sure, have been hard at the grind because both Dragon Ball Fighterz and Monster Hunter World have both come out last week. I stick to my guns in saying that DB Fighterz is too good for the fanbase its made for. No shade against you if you aren’t into fighting games or anything, but I’ve never come across a group of fans so ungrateful for such an amazingly polished game.
Also, I guess the new Final Fantasy: Dissidia game came out too, but everyone forgot because the other two games were just way more hyped. Guess you can’t bank on your name alone to sell your stuff for you anymore. . . As for me, I got none of these games because I am a loser and have almost no free time. I’ve been sticking with my weaboo games instead: Hyperdimension Neptunia, Dark Souls 3, the patch for Final Fantasy XIV which drops tomorrow, and the new “Setsubun” event for Fate/Grand Order. I AM A WELL ESTABLISHED GAMER SLASH LOSER!
NOW ON TO ANIME!
I’ve finally found a chance to do an article on anime I hate because my hatred is so strong and salty that I couldn’t stop myself. However, I am currently on my article for good anime this season. Spoiler Alert: Violet Evergarden is absolutely amazing. I don’t much of a heart, but if I did I would be feeling a lot of things watching that show.
On a side note, I’ve been watching a show called Yuru Camp that is just the most absolute comfortable anime to watch. Ever. . . Yes, I said “comfortable”. Yuru Camp is about a young girl named Nadeshiko who movies out to the countryside with her family. On her first day there, she meets another girl named Rin who loves camping, partly because she loves to camp, mostly because she wants to get away from the world. The anime goes through the ins and outs of camping and how to do everything correctly, but it’s a slice-of-life and you know what that means. It hits a good note on the comical side and the characters (girls) are all cute and endearing so it’s generally just a really fun watch.
That being said, it is extremely comfortable and not a lot happens, but it is just so gratifying to watch after a long day. Do recommend for slice-of-life lovers.
Anyway, that’s it for me today Giga-Friends. I hope you have a great day and an even better week! -J.R
