Taking a Look at my Desktop Backgrounds

Doing Something a bit Different

Today I felt like talking about my desktop backgrounds and my thought process behind how and why I choose the ones I have. This article is a good way to get to know me some more and an opportunity for folks to share some cool images with each other. This isn’t really meant to be in-depth or anything, just for fun. I know this is something fairly atypical of me but I hope you’ll indulge me a bit and enjoy 🙂  Continue reading “Taking a Look at my Desktop Backgrounds”

Rightstuf Holiday Sale Buying Guide 2016 – Top 26-ish Picks

It’s That Time of Year Again!

Which means that I’m back with my annual Righstuf Holiday buying guide. This time of year is the ideal time to stock up on anime when the prices at Righstuf are unbelievably low. The best part is that whether you have a membership or not, the savings are the same for all so nobody has to miss out. Last year I detailed 35 picks, some are bound to make it back this year but first, here are some rules for this list:

  • Only anime DVD’s and Blu-rays will be featured on this list. I don’t really read manga and so I’m not all that well informed on what’s a good deal or even what titles people should really pick up.
  • No Mega Deals or Limited Offers will be featured since they have a time limit.
  • Has to be the best price I can find, if Amazon beats it then it doesn’t end up on the list.
  • Out of Stock items will not be on the main list but will probably get an honorable mention (they might come back into stock).
  • List is in no particular order.
  • Lastly, this list is only current as of 12/5/16. That means I’ve sifted through all 1,519 deals so far! More offers are added each day, so be sure to head over to Righstuf each day and see what new deals pop up.

🎃Happy Halloween🎃

It’s That Time of Year Again!

Unfortunately, there has just been too much going on in my life for me to do a full fledged Halloween Week like I did last year, but I didn’t want to do nothing this year. In this article I’ll tackle some cool Halloween suggestions as well as to call back to posts of yesteryear’s Halloween.

Stuff From Last Year

Just click on the titles of the reviews below to see what I was talking about last year.

Things I think people should especially check out or do from this list for Halloween this year are Betrayal At House On The Hill, Over The Garden Wall, and (obligatorily) The Nightmare Before Christmas. Each item from last year’s review slate is a good one for Halloween either way though.

Some New Recommendations

Here’s a short list of three things I recommend for your Halloween along with a brief reason as to why for each. These are in no particular order.

1. Shiki

shiki

Shiki is by far one of the best horror anime I’ve ever watched. At first glance, the show seems pretty terrible but given the chance, Shiki is more than capable of proving just how great of a show it actually is. Shiki is a more traditional vampire story taking place in a modern setting. When the horror sets in, and mind you it does take its time getting there, you’ll be on the edge of your seat. Of particular note, I found it interesting that the show explored some deeper sociological and philosophical topics, which may be of some interest to others.

You can watch this one for on Hulu subbed.

2. Soul Eater

This show just oozes Halloween. I’ll leave some pictures and the OP below, should speak for itself. Not as spooky as Shiki but a fun watch if you haven’t seen it before. You can watch this one on Hulu too (dub and sub).

3. Stranger Things

In case you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know, Stranger Things is fantastic. If you haven’t seen it already, go watch it on Netflix. Need some convincing? Jacob did a review of this one, so click on this link and check it out.

From The New World Review

Overview

Anime Review 5 & Part of Halloween Week🎃

I finally finished it! This review has been a long time coming but truthfully it was for Halloween Week from the start. From The New World originally aired in 2012 and was produced by A-1 Pictures. The anime is 25 episodes long and takes around 10 hours to complete. Billed as a horror show that is greatly underrated, does From The New World (an obvious reference to Antonin Dvorak’s symphony of the same name) hold up to all the hype?
