I Cry Every Time: Persona 3 - A and S I Cry Every Time: Persona 3 - A and S

This post is part of a Pastime Zone series called “I Cry Every Time”, or ICET (Ice-Tea) for short. The goal of this series is to highlight scenes in various media that have caused me to cry, weep, bawl, or shed a lone tear in response to an emotional state brought upon by the scene (not by any physical pain or…

A List of Music Pieces from “Your Lie in April” A List of Music Pieces from “Your Lie in April”

When “Your Lie in April” (“Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso”) was released as an anime four years ago, there was great potential for A-1 Pictures to improve on the original manga due to the inclusion of live music in an music-themed anime that was originally difficult to express through the original manga. Fortunately for us,…

Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies’ Villains Ranked Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies’ Villains Ranked

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney − Dual Destinies is the fifth entry in the main Ace Attorney series by Capcom. Unlike the Ace Attorney Investigations series (a spin-off) that I wrote about previously, this visual novel adventure allows us to step into the shoes of all three defense attorneys in the series so far, Phoenix…

Review: #847 D.Va Nendoroid Review: #847 D.Va Nendoroid

While I’m not an Overwatch player myself, I’m fairly familiar with the franchise as I’ve played many of Blizzard’s other games and think their content is generally top-notch. Also, my wife is an avid player on the PC servers, so when Best Buy had a sale on Overwatch Nendoroids a couple months ago, I knew I had to get…

Analyzing the Mythology Behind the Persona 3/4/5 Antagonists Analyzing the Mythology Behind the Persona 3/4/5 Antagonists

My over 300 hours worth of adventures through Atlus’ recent Persona games (sorry Persona 1 and 2 fans, for now) have clearly given me a lot to think and write about here. Whether it’s the friendships, a deductive process, a specific heart-warming scene, comparing the games, or real-world collectibles, it may seem like…

Review: Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories (PS4) Review: Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories (PS4)

Last month, I finally opened myself to the Sony exclusive gaming catalog by getting a PS4 Pro, my first PlayStation since my PS2 during high school 11 years ago. Along with purchasing more Kingdom Hearts collectibles, one of the first things I wanted to do on my new console was to finally play through the side games…

Persona Q’s Best Relationship is Meaningful but Bittersweet Persona Q’s Best Relationship is Meaningful but Bittersweet

Last month, I finished the 3DS dungeon crawler/crossover between Persona 3 and Persona 4/somehow canon Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. This 2014 game was made in response to the popularity of both previous installments of Atlus’ Personafranchise and included “super-deformed” sprites of all of our favorite…

Persona 3 and Persona 4 - A Comparison Persona 3 and Persona 4 - A Comparison

I finally finished Persona 3 over the months of April and May this year, and although it was pretty challenging at times, I definitely am glad I went through with the experience. Just like I did for Persona 4, I’ll be writing a post or two about the game as well as reviewing a Nendoroid, but before that, I wanted to…

Guide to Gundams and Gunpla in Japan Guide to Gundams and Gunpla in Japan

I was in Japan for about a week this June and while I enjoyed many different parts of the trip, one of my focuses was definitely to check out the Gundam and gunpla-related places in Japan. Hopefully, this post will help those who are planning on visiting Japan at some point understand a little better how one can…

My First Experience With redditgifts My First Experience With redditgifts

Over the holidays last year was when I first heard about redditgifts, a “secret santa” service that happens year-round to matches Santas and giftees. There are several “seasons” of exchanges throughout the year, with over a dozen categories of exchanges each season. For example, recently, there were exchanges “For…

Review: Gyakuten Kenji 2 Orchestra Arrangement Collection Review: Gyakuten Kenji 2 Orchestra Arrangement Collection

As I wrote about in my previous post, Gyakuten Kenji 2 or Ace Attorney Investigations 2: Miles Edgeworth: Prosecutor’s Path is one of the best entries in the Ace Attorney franchise. Even though I’ve moved onto other games already, I found myself wanting to write more about the game. Again though, I found myself faced…

Summarizing the Shohoku-Ryonan Practice Game in Slam Dunk Summarizing the Shohoku-Ryonan Practice Game in Slam Dunk

Since I’m a basketball fan in real life, it made sense for me to check out a basketball anime, so recently I started watching the ’90s classic Slam Dunk. After the initial exposition and character introductions, the first actual basketball game (except it was a practice game) started in episode 14, and I was super…

6 Spoiler-Free Reasons that Gyakuten Kenji 2 Deserves Its Hype 6 Spoiler-Free Reasons that Gyakuten Kenji 2 Deserves Its Hype

Since it came out in 2011 on the Nintendo DS, Gyakuten Kenji 2has received critical acclaim among Ace Attorney fans, and after finishing it this week, I’m a little disappointed in myself that it took me so long to discover the masterpiece. Part of the reason was that Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth wasn’t…

My 7-Step Guide to Prepare for a Hearthstone Tournament My 7-Step Guide to Prepare for a Hearthstone Tournament

Shortly after I began playing Hearthstone in mid 2016, I started dabbling in the local and online tournament scene. Despite Hearthstone growing as an e-sport over the past two years and Blizzard updating the HCT process recently, I’ve had some small successes in these tournaments. A significant reason for this is that…

Persona 4’s Friendships Defined Its Story: Character Profiles Persona 4’s Friendships Defined Its Story: Character Profiles

When I went back home for Christmas this past year, I decided to bring my old PS2 back home with me to Chicago. One of the first things I did was order off eBay a game that I’d been wanting to play for the past several years: Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4. Time has flown by since its arrival, and over the past month…
