A look back at 2018’s anime; How many did you watch?

January 23, 2019

Now, even though I haven’t posted much… in the last… however many years(2 and a halfish), I’ve still very much been keeping up with the anime airing each season each year. Probably because of that I’ve not written anything. But I’d like to try and change that. Juggling work, what I watch, play and sometimes read is always difficult though. BUT!!! Let’s give it a whirl!

I’ll confess that my taste in anime can sometimes be questionable. But I feel you need some trash in your life to balance out the Oscar/award-worthy titles. That said, I don’t stoop as low as “In Another World with my Smartphone” and “The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar”… but I do enjoy more than the odd isekai, which my best boy has pretty much tapped out on as he feels the market is oversaturated and they all have dumb titles. Which is probably true for about half of anime these days anyway.

New Detolf & New Matcha & New Anime

April 13, 2016

So last week I got to go to Ikea, and finally get a second Detolf 😀 (amongst other things, like shelves and cutlery).

I also caved and got some more matcha, which was in the last post. But today I caved and opened it. Which I’m glad I did.

And the past couple of weeks all the new anime has started, and I’ve tried almost everything new out, even the shorts. Haven’t decided to pick many up though… so far anyway.

Day Off = TV, Anime, Games and SNACKS!! (Dagashi Kashi sample set 1 tasting)

March 2, 2016

My days off are used to catch up on TV, play games and control the TV completely. But today was special, as I got to try out some of my Dagashi Kashi loot from JList. It arrived last week but I’d only been able to try two things since then; an Umaibo which turned out to be Natto flavour, which I enjoyed XD (Now I want to try real Natto, dangerous right?) and the Cherry Kozakura Mochi, which I had Thursday while watching Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi. It was very cute.

Dagashi Kashi – Genius product placement.

Saya-chan is best girl.

So I fell victim to this show and it’s blatant snack advertising and ordered one of the JList/JBox sample sets, Best $12 I ever spent. As well as the extra Konpeito I ordered. But $12 for essentially a sort-of surprise bag of weird and wondrful Japanese snacks. Some of which I know, some of which I don’t, all of which I wanted to try however. Thanks to Dagashi Kashi. (Stupid show.)

So I’ve clearly not posted in almost a year. And I have a really-really good reason for that. I promise. And no, I didn’t leave the country again or anything like that XD.

Some of the stuff that has arrived over the past months :3
