Shakugan no Shana Season 3 Announced Shakugan no Shana Season 3 Announced

J.C. Staff just announced that Shakugan no Shana is finally getting a third entry in the series, 11 years after season 2 ended.

Hey again, everyone, Raitzeno here with the rest of my Naka-Kon report, such as it is. Normally I stay a lot longer and take a lot more pictures, but my time at the con got cut a bit short this year due to some unforeseen issues.

Naka-Kon Trip Report Day 1: Benimaru and the JETs Naka-Kon Trip Report Day 1: Benimaru and the JETs

...Okay, yeah, that reference may be a little dated. Anyway, this is Raitzeno, just home from day 1 of Naka-Kon, an anime convention in Overland Park, Kansas (in the Kansas City metropolitan area, since many of you have probably never heard of it). Today was basically a scouting day for me and my fellow panelist,…

The Broly Rises: The Ani-TAY Review The Broly Rises: The Ani-TAY Review

This is Raitzeno, back from a food coma with another delicious Ani-TAY Review. Today’s target is a fantastic little movie I’m sure none of you have ever heard anyone talk about: The Broly Rises. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, which should be everyone, TBR is a new movie set in the Dragon Ball Super…

Octopath Traveler: Multiple Protagonist Disorder Octopath Traveler: Multiple Protagonist Disorder

Let me get this out of the way first: I really, really like Octopath. I’m enjoying the hell out of it, and getting more than my money’s worth out of the purchase - and I got the big silly collector’s edition.

Blimp: SMT Dx2 Liberators launches TONIGHT Blimp: SMT Dx2 Liberators launches TONIGHT

Surprise! The client is available for download on the Google Play store RIGHT NOW, and servers go live in less than half an hour. CBT players just need a quick update on the client software, and supposedly we’re keeping our data from it. I sure as hell hadn’t heard anything solid about the release date, so this is a…

SMT Dx2: Liberation Impressions SMT Dx2: Liberation Impressions

Had I known the beta was going to end that fast, I would have been better prepared to write this (or, indeed, I might have known I was going to write it before it ended). But much like in most of the SMT series, shit happened I wasn’t ready for, and we got wiped, but we should be able to load our save data later. So…

Cooking With Raitzeno: Fully Responsible For Azami Stamping Out Culinary Creativity Cooking With Raitzeno: Fully Responsible For Azami Stamping Out Culinary Creativity

Welcome back to (a NEWLY UPDATED, see bottom of article) Cooking With Raitzeno, where God is dead of food poisoning, Cthulhu is vomiting in the bathroom, and the Buddha is glad to be fasting. Today I’ve only got a small morsel of suffering to inflict on you, but it’s going to be made deliciously worse by knowing what…

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…

Etrian Odyssey V Isn't Clicking For Me, And I Don't Know Why Etrian Odyssey V Isn't Clicking For Me, And I Don't Know Why

I’m a longtime fan of the series, and played a lot of the demo, so I came into the game with high but reasonable expectations. But after I picked up EO5 yesterday, I’ve found myself not enjoying it as much as I expected to, and I haven’t quite been able to put my finger on why.

The 12 Anime of Summer 2017 You Should Be Watching The 12 Anime of Summer 2017 You Should Be Watching

Welcome to the Summer 2017 Ani-TAY Recommendation Collaboration! Assuming nobody else writes a better version of this before we have to publish, I’m your host this time, Raitzeno, and I’ve cooked up— no, thankfully, I haven’t. We’ve had some scheduling kerfluffles leading to me writing this up, but the overall process…

Blip: New 2D(ragon)S Blip: New 2D(ragon)S

So this is a thing in Japan. Ninty just announced a Metabble-themed New 2DS bundled with DQ11. Holy shit that is smexy. Too bad the XL/LL hurts when held by my itty bitty t-rex hands. ;_;
