Happy Birthday Rin!! (11/1)

Image
Today in Japan it is November 1st, and thus it is Hoshizora Rin's Birthday! Rin is the tomboy of the group and she excels at sports, especially hurdling, basketball and, football (soccer); naturally this makes her an excellent dancer as well. She is very hardworking and leads the group's practice sessions. When she was little, boys teased her for not dressing like a girl, so she has had a complex about her appearance that she is trying to overcome with the help of her fellow μ's members. She also likes to speak like a cat, ending sentences with nya~, and sometimes even looking or dressing like a cat.

Happy Birthday Rin!!

Harpy Birthday Murasaki!! (10/26)

Image
Yep, another b-day post, but this time it's not a Love Live character, but instead Murasaki from Senran Kagura. For those who don't know, or haven't seen my avatar on several different sites (Google, Steam, MAL, amongst others), Murasaki is my favorite character, and I would even go as far as to call her my Waifu.

Murasaki is first introduced in Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus and is associated with Hebijo Academy. She lacks basic social skills and avoids contact with people, to the point where she is the only truant student in the school's history. She mostly stays in her room reading online novels, playing video games or watching anime with her stuffed bear Bebeby. She has a very cynical outlook on life, and tends to interpret everything negatively. In battle Murasaki uses Shurikens that are woven in her hair as well as emit waves of energy due to her 'Root of Calamity' ability. She also has the strange ability to sniff information about another person's i…

Happy Birthday Eli!! (10/21)

Image
Today is Eli Ayase's Birthday! The responsible and ever so diligent Student Council President of Otonokizaka High is a very serious, no nonsense person who serves as the realist of the group. Although she tends to distance herself from people she doesn't know very well, she is very caring and protective of anyone who takes the time to get to know her. She is very glamorous and is often complimented for her style and figure. She is part Russian and has a younger sister named Alisa who she cares a lot for.

Happy Birthday Kotori!! (9/12)

Image
Today is 9/12 in Japan right now and thus is Kotori Minami's Birthday. While Kotori may come off as cutesy, ditsy and very indecisive, she is the one who is able to interpret the feelings of the other members the best, and is the one with the most insight as to how another member is feeling. She is also very talented with costumes, designing all the outfits for the group in addition to secretly (for a short time) being one the most popular maids in Akiba: Minalinsky. Happy Birthday Kotori-chan!!!

Happy Birthday Nico!! (7/22)

Image
NICO NICO NII!!!!
July 22nd is Yazawa Nico's birthday! While the shortest of the group, she is definitely the idol with the most heart, and she puts her all into her performances with the gusto of a pro. Her words may be extremely harsh on the other girls, but she only wants what's best for the group.

Rest in Peace Satoru Iwata

Today is a very sad day for all gamers and Nintendo fans like me. Satoru Iwata, the President and CEO of Nintendo has passed away at 55 due to a bile duct growth.
When I was young, it was Nintendo games that represented my youth, I loved playing Mario, Starfox, and Kirby among many other legends, some of which this man had a part in. When I look back on those fond times, I truly appreciate everything both Iwata-san and Nintendo did for me as a kid. For all the memories and fun times that I've had with Nintendo games and products, I want to say thank you Satoru Iwata, and Rest in Peace.

E3 2015 Review

Image
With E3 2015 finally behind us, I just wanted to write up a small post about what I was most interested in from the event. Overall for the big three, I think Sony won the show, with many new and innovative titles along with the announcement of some returning fan favorites. Nintendo followed suit, and unfortunately I found nothing of interest from Microsoft. As for individual games themselves, the niche and indie titles stole the show for me with Xseed Games easily having the games I'm most interested in. So now I'll list all the games I am currently keeping an eye on in alphabetical order (I will include trailers if you're curious):

Battleborn - Looks like a crazy fun time + from creator of Borderlands

Cosmic Star Heroine - Zeboyd never fails to deliver! I backed this one on Kickstarter and I can't wait to get my copy!

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided - Looks incredible, plus Human Revolution was an amazing game.

Disgaea 5 - Gotta love me some sexy devils ;)

Happy Birthday Nozomi!! (6/9)

Image
Today (6/9) is Tojo Nozomi's Birthday! As my second favorite character in Love Live, I adore her a lot! She is the main pillar of support for the group, and kind and sweet to boot (not to mention handsy) so I just wanted to give a small B-day post to μ's favorite big sister.

Danmachi!

Image
Of the new anime series airing this season, one that really caught my eye was Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka or Danmachi for short. The title for the English version is: Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? I really like how the anime takes standard RPG tropes and applies them to their world, like how an adventurer can 'view' their stats similar to the status menu in an RPG or there is a level system to indicate overall growth. As a child I grew up playing JRPGs (My blog name is a good indicator of that) and today it still remains my favorite gaming genre, although shmups and 2D fighting games are coming close. This anime has been a blast to watch so far, and I'm really liking the characters, especially Hestia; she is adorable and a really supportive goddess. <3

I was so impressed with the 4 episodes I've seen so far, I went and picked up the English versions of the first two light novels!

Here's the synopsis lifted straigh…

Sakura!!!

Image
About three weeks ago I went out to my backyard, where we have a Cherry Blossom (Sakura) tree that was planted out back by the former owners of our house . In recent years the tree has not been doing so well, but it seems that this year it is getting much better. Do any of you guys know any good methods for caring for a Cherry Blossom tree?
I took a couple of images, and I've gotta say for a cell phone camera, they came out okay :) I love Cherry Blossoms, so pretty and serene.
