Nerdery With Raitzeno: Vehicular Spitballing Nerdery With Raitzeno: Vehicular Spitballing

So i may have mentioned my Wednesday night RPG campaign is an Avatars game, in which we are playing as ourselves in what’s effectively an isekai. One of my friends has brought his full-size van into this world, the other has brought his motorcycle. I brought my backpack with all my gadgets, and we’ve managed to cobble…

It’s again the time of the year, when we are slowly coming from one season to another, turning back and reviewing what we saw and in what we invested time past few months.

Building My First Gunpla - A Beginner's Guide to Building Your First Gundam Model Building My First Gunpla - A Beginner's Guide to Building Your First Gundam Model

Okay, first of all I’m a beginner at model making. I’ve always been interested in making a Gundam model since they looked really cool from the models I’ve seen, but I’ve always been intimidated by the sheer number of parts and the DIY nature of Gundam building. It doesn’t help either that when I search for beginner…

Fate/Extella Dumps All the Glitter, Hides Lack of Gold Fate/Extella Dumps All the Glitter, Hides Lack of Gold

As if it weren’t obvious enough by my screename being “Nero Claudius”, I love Fate. When I watched the series available on Netflix, I instantly fell in love. The amazing diversity of characters and drama with great action throughout the ride made me eager to find more content. I’m incredibly limited with my anime…

Stínolez’s Seasonal Roundup [Fall 2017] Stínolez’s Seasonal Roundup [Fall 2017]

Format of it didn’t change and as last two seasons I’m not including synopsis of the shows - you can go and search for it on MyAnimeList.net or any other similar site.

Gamer Diary: Doki Doki Literature Club Gamer Diary: Doki Doki Literature Club

Doki Doki Literature Club is one of those games that everybody’s been playing and reviewing recently, and my aim is not just to be another person on the bandwagon.

Making Sense of Steins;Gate – Part 1: List of World Lines Making Sense of Steins;Gate – Part 1: List of World Lines

Steins;Gate is a great story. I say story generally because while originally a visual novel, its universe has expanded to animes, a movie, and other media, most of which is canon and deserving of consumption and analysis. That said, despite being 3,600 words long, this post is probably not going to be my only one…

Hello everyone! Many of us in the U.S. are enjoying an extended Thanksgiving holiday weekend. If you are anything like me, you may be spending this time in a semi-vegetative state while your digestive system desperately attempts to compensate for your poor eating decisions. So a simple question for this week, “What…

Anime in Numbers (Summer 2017) Anime in Numbers (Summer 2017)

It was one night mid July, when I was wondering - how accurate are the scores of the show in the beginning of its airing, middle and how they change when the show is finished.
