The Scale of Adventure in Shingeki no Bahamut

Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis and Virgin Soul handle the scale of their adventures very differently, with the first a world-spanning journey and the second a close-knit exploration of mostly a single city and surrounding areas. I thought it would be interesting to talk about that difference.

Take a look at that video below the break!

Why You Should Maybe Be Watching: Gamers!

Bonjour, and welcome to another stirring edition of anime I think You Should Maybe Be Watching, an example of my endless ambivalence to the more lackluster shows of the season that still have gems of goodness hidden within. Tonight my guest is Gamers!, a series about a group of people who, surprise surprise, are gamers, each with their own reasons to play the medium we all know and love, though there is a romantic comedy element to the show, as well.

If that sounds like a fantastic time to you, or you’re one of the two people (hi mom!) who just love reading everything I write, take a look below the break!
