Seriously Though, I Have a Ton of Excuses!

Tuesday, April 14th –
So I definitely forgot to post yesterday, for the first time! I know, I know. It’s hard to believe I’m not perfect, right? It’s O.K though, I have to make mistakes sometimes to remind you guys that I’m just a human too!
So, I’m sure you missed me yesterday. Covered in sweat, crying into your dakimakura, and screaming toward the heavens, “WHY! Where is J.R and his incredible journal!? WHY!?!?!?” . . .
Anyway, besides getting called into work and finishing my anime review articles, I got completely lost in some new anime. Well, that . . . and I was checking out the new announcments for Final Fantasy XIV‘s new expansion, HeavensWard. I’m getting more and more excite to see some of the new stuff that’s coming out! Company built Airships, new Notorious Monsters, three new jobs, a new race, flying mounts! . . . The list keeps going! I just recently finished the story for the initial A Realm Reborn release and it was honestly pretty darn good. I mean, MOST of it was filler and fetch quests, but when you finally hit Lv50 and start doing the good stuff it really picks up. The ending especially was absolutely insane! One of the country’s generals loses his “S” and the fight scene following that was just amazing! They’re definitely doing a lot right for FFXIV and the release of the new HW expansion will hopefully bring a lot more to the table. Please look forward to it.
Other than that, I really haven’t had much time to play games. I’m progressing ever-so-slowly through Ar NoSurge and very rarely practicing in Under Night In-Birth. . . I’m a bad boy. But, my excuse is that I’m working on Gigaventure’s anime articles! I promise! . . .
Speaking of which,
NOW ON TO ANIME!
So, the new season has finally started and I’m so far really excited about what I’ve seen. Of course, David and I will be regaling you with our amazing recounts of the anime as we write our initial reviews, so look forward to those soon. In the meantime, I’m really enjoying Shokugeki no Souma, Kekkai Sensen, and Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?. This season has had a ton of amazing starts, and I haven’t been this excited about anime since Attack on Titan started.
I’m not going to ruin the fun for you here, so you get to wait for our patented, and doctor recommended, anime articles to pop up! It’ll be worth the wait!
We’re going to be trying a -different- type of podcast soon, sponsored by someone that ISN’T Dustin! It will be anime themed and we’re really excited to do our first episode soon. Please look forward to it!
