   Hello and Good Monday Giga-Friends! I’ve been pretty enamored with some new music lately. Due to the fact that I’ve been playing a game with my friends called UNepic on Steam. A game with no music. I NEED MUSIC! So my friend decided to send my an enormous playlist of nerd music (video game tracks, anime OP & ED, etc. . .) so I’d stop bitc- . . . whining. When suddenly, I stumbled upon that got my foot a-tappin’ and my head a-boppin’. It was an arranged Touhou track by a group called “FELT” (Singer: びびあん [Vivienne]). So, I’ve found a pretty great playlist here that I’ve been subbing out when I play FFXIV, read, or write (so . . . right now). It has a ton of different types of music too, making it a great selection for a lot of people, even if you aren’t really interested in Touhou like Yours Truly. I’ve been digging a lot of the upbeat, almost rock, soundtracks by the group especially when I play the same dungeon for the 1XXXth time on FFXIV. I highly suggest at least giving a few of them a quick listen, it really fits in a lot of musical genres. I know I’ll be buying the CDs . . . when I make some money . . . Poor nerd alert!

Anime we talked about. We're SO manly!

Anyway, enough marketing now. I’m pretty happy with our most recent podcast hosted by the magnanimous and gregarious David Thomson, my co-writer. He’d had an idea about an anime-themed podcast recently that we took to heart and finally put into action. We had a ton of fun talking about some new anime and discussing the genre in general. David has proved that he’s an amazing and charismatic MC who I look forward to working with again *bow*. Joking aside, I’m really excited to listen to it myself, even though I was part of the podcast myself, just so I can learn a little more about how I speak and I how I can convey my thoughts better. It was a load of fun when David pulled out a random . . . “Conversation Topic” out at the end. All I can say is, “INTERN CHEATED”.

  Anyway, please look forward to it!




  So, the new anime season has obviously started and, unless you’re living under a rock, I’m hoping you’ve heard of Shokugeki no Souma. Another anime about . . . cooking!? Yeah, seriously,  it’s an absolute blast to watch and probably my favorite this season (so far). I’ll be doing my review on it very soon, so you’ll get a look at it pretty soon to see if it fits your likes and/or fetishes (jk?).

  Dammit, I really want to talk about a lot of anime but we’re gonna be throwing out our articles pretty soon so I don’t want to spoil it!! Argh! Such dilemma!

  Well, I can at least recommend Shokugeki no Souma, Kekkai Sensen, Is It Wrong to Try and Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon, and Arslan Senki. So . . . dammit!


Anyway, that’s it for me Giga-Pals! I hope you have a great Monday and an even better week!
