Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! -Heart Throb-

Have you ever thought what it would be like to be a wizard? How about an elven warrior possessed with the powers of a Demon Lord? For some of you, the thought may have crossed your mind. Heck, you could head down to the local park every Sunday for a good Live Action Role Play session. For most, it’s just a fantasy – a wonderment that arrives in the brain and leaves just as quickly. But what if you were fixated on the idea of being powerful to such an extent you truly believed it? That’s the central theme to Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! -Heart Throb-, an anime from Kyoto Animation. Continue reading “Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! -Heart Throb-“

The Last: Naruto the Movie

It’s hard to believe that the Naruto series is only 15 years old. It feels longer, but one of the most popular Manga exports from Japan has been in popular culture for a decade and a half. Naruto’s popularity has only risen in this time, which is why it is shocking it is only this old. So what a better way of celebrating this milestone than with a feature film, The Last: Naruto the Movie. Continue reading “The Last: Naruto the Movie”

My Thoughts after playing the Nintendo Switch

Let’s get the braggy part of the post out of the way first. Last weekend, I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to have a hands-on experience with the Nintendo Switch. I’d won a spot on the London leg of Nintendo’s next console showcase before any release dates, prices or games were officially confirmed. After a sleepy Friday & Saturday (I’m too old for all-nighters and need a day to catch up), I headed off to the Capital to play Nintendo’s follow up to the Wii U.

Have a look at Nintendo’s Fire Emblem Direct

Well, well, well. It’s been quite a week for Nintendo. After months of radio silence, the Nintendo Switch was unveiled. While I’m still working out the words I want to convey, let’s turn our attention to Fire Emblem. As soon as the presentation was over last Thursday/Friday, the Big-N decided to announce that there will be a Nintendo direct on 18/01/2017 dedicated to their Strategic-RPG, Fire Emblem.
