Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory Pre-Orders... →
I realize this news is a few days old, but I thought I’d post about it anyway. This set looks nice (and reasonably priced unlike the Mugen Souls stuff) and from what I hear this is the best installment in the series. I’ve seen some internet rumors about the localization quality lacking in this one, but I’ll have to do some research before detailing any specifics. I’m moving...
Anonymous asked: On the Saturday July 21st post you mention that you could not post the entire response from NIS America in regards to Mugen Souls due to "legal reasons". What legal reasons preventing you from posting the entire letter online?
Mugen Souls Censorship
￼ So there’s been a lot of buzz about NIS America’s new title, Mugen Souls. The game looks like it’s a blast for moe lovers and JRPG fans, but there’s one issue that has probably received more attention than the game itself. Censorship. Yes, censorship most likely due to pressure from Rating Boards and the fear of Puritanical outrage has yet again stepped in to ensure that the North American and...
Reflections... Jinrui Wa Suitai Shimashtia
Note: These are my reflections after watching the first episode, not a review. I’d highly suggest watching it before reading this! The first episode of Jinrui Wa Suitai Shimashita, translated as Humanity Has Declined, aired this week and it’s well… weird.

Alchemy Girl Meruru's Song Translation
Here’s a translation of the song from the Atelier Meruru soundtrack that I posted yesterday. I find this song to be reminiscent of anime theme songs from the 70’s and 80’s such as the openings to Cutey Honey, Casshern, or even Saint Seiya. I’d like to note that in lieu of a direct translation I decided to apply some creative interpretation to reflect the feeling and...
