Having fun with a Figma 1/12 scale toilet model kit!

I have a whole series of images to come but it will take a bit of time to edit them all. For now, here's some funny shots as a teaser!

Makoto's Birthday Shrine - 橘真琴生誕祭2015

The 17th of November marked the day of Makoto Tachibana's birthday. So as Free! fans, my sibling and I decided to gather up all our Mako merch and make a shrine dedicated to the birthday boy. Chizumaki is a huuuuge fan of Mako and has a bigger collection than me, but I do have a few new figures from my recent Japan trip such as the Bitter Chocolate Taito Kuji figure and Captain Mako!

Broken Age - short game review

I've been playing this little game called Broken Age on my PS4. I got it for free as part of my PSN Plus subscription last month. It's a point and click adventure game with absolutely gorgeous artwork, it's like playing a moving painting. Not only is it lovely to look at, it presents you with two characters to play, who are both living in bizarre circumstances.

Vella is a young woman about to be sacrificed to a monster to stop it from destroying her town, who would like nothing more than to kill the monster rather than be eaten. Whereas Shay is a young man trapped in space ship and forced to play out childish games by a crazy mothering computer and craves more exciting adventures.

To progress through the story you need to collect various items and use them to interact with other objects or characters in the game world. You come across some pretty funny NPC's and quirky ways to get them to help you move on through the game. Like for example, getting a tree to spew sap into a bucket.

You can switch between the characters at any time, but it's almost like playing two separate games, as neither character seems to anywhere near meeting one another. At this point I am further into Vella's story than I am into Shay's.

The game is relaxing to play, you don't have to worry about dying or missing some quicktime event and it is more about puzzle solving and interacting with the world around you. Plus I get a good laugh from the odd characters and puns they come out with.

So if you are someone who enjoys beautiful artwork, interesting stories and you're totally sick of button mashing and would rather use your head, then this is the game for you! I'm personally enjoying it quite a lot and recommend you give it a try!

Noragami Aragoto season 2 preview video

Noragami's first season aired in 2014 and I've been really hoping they would make more. There was a 2 episode OVA to follow that, which didn't quite tide me over. Now finally the second full season Noragami Aragoto will start airing in October 2015, along with another 2 OVA episodes to be released with the manga in November 2015 and March 2016 respectively.

Enjoy the PV commercial for the 2nd season of Noragami here ~

Sailor Moon is Satan's Princess? - the weird stuff I find on the internet >_>

While browsing through Sailor Moon related clothing on Storenvy, I came across this odd little gemstone. I'm loving the allover print that is comprised of screenshots from the old & new anime of Usagi making all sorts of faces. What made me double take was the caption placed over it. "Satan's Princess" ....... ok I'm all for edgy clothing but it seems odd to pair this hellraising phrase with this particular character.

You can buy this odd piece of fashion here ~ https://www.storenvy.com/products/10414701-satanic-sailor-moon-tee

Code Geass : Akito the Exiled episode 3 OVA - Lelouch screenshot frenzy!

Watched Code Geass : Akito the Exiled ep 3 today, it was good. The mecha battles look really great with computer animation and Lelouch is fabulous as always, even if he currently thinks he is "Julias Kingsley". Pretty sure they re-wrote the script for Akito the Exiled to include Lelouch and that's why it's taken almost 2 years for the 3rd OVA to come out and the original plan for 4 episode's has now become 5. Not complaining one bit. Lelouch makes everything better!

Hence forth, all these screenshots are from the scenes that include Lelouch. Because who gives a shit about anyone else? (ok so maybe I like Leila and Akito a decent amount but that's overshadowed by LELOUCHHHHHH!!!)

You missed this fucking sexy face didn't you?

...And those scandelous hips.

Screw you all..

...I am now a magical girl.

Check out my sweet wand!

Oh yeah and obey the wand.

Lelouch writhing on the floor... I'm sure Suzaku is struggling to keep it in his pants here.

Ahhh man I can't wait until work is over so me and Lelouch can go and have sex.

Get your hands off my boyfriend you slut!

Fabulous hands.

"Julias Kingsley's" guest mentions the terrorist Zero which sends him on a bit of a trip out.

It's ok, he didn't shoot him. Lulu was just all brain fried and passed out. Of course we know that he lives because this series is set between season 1 and 2 of Lelouch of the Rebellion. So I'm guessing after this episode, Lelouch is dragged back to the Emperor to have his memories of Zero wiped again, before returning him to school with Rolo to replace Nunnally.

Hoping to see more cameo's from Lelouch and Suzaku in the next 2 episodes. But not betting on it.
