Ressha Sentai ToQger: Episode 08-10 Review

Ressha Sentai ToQger: Episode 08-10 Review

Ten episodes in, and things for Ressha Sentai ToQger are starting to feel stagnant.

The Recession is Over, and You Should Thank the Fangirls Part 2

The Recession is Over, and You Should Thank the Fangirls Part 2

It's also easy to say we should thank the male fans who bought Dragonball Z fifteen times over and buy the premium boob-shaped box sets of harem series, but I don't believe they were enough on their own to stem the tide of the industry's downturn, and they certainly weren't the only viable sustaining customers in the companies' minds.
