Sparrow’s Hotel: Episode 04 Review

When we left our discussion of Sparrow’s Hotel, I was thanking the creators for only giving me three minutes of this train wreck to watch. Since then, I’ve watched an additional three episodes, which brings my time lost to this anime to twelve minutes. Let’s just say I’ll be sending the creator my invoice for time that I would like back.

Aiura: Episode 04 Review

I’m three more episodes (so like 12 more minutes) into the series now, and nothing very memorable has happened. The main character’s name is Ayuko, and she is basically devoid of personality, merely serving as the voice of reason for her two friends, Kanaka and Saki (who really aren’t even that frivolous…just somewhat annoying).

Gargantia on the Verduous Planet: Episode 4 Review By Skie

Zettai Boei Leviatan: Episode 04 Review

Zettai Boei Leviatan is, in a nutshell, incredibly boring. Going on episode five, the story has yet to develop… there are random, awkward scenarios thrown at the characters with arbitrary obstacles and nonsensical, easy-out solutions that do nothing to foster a sense of fear or tension.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

Just as the new Hunter arrives in the picturesque Moga Village, a massive earthquake rocks the seaside community and he is tasked with investigating the cause of the quakes. The source is thought to be a Lagiacrus – a leviathan that has devastated the fishing fleet and is known for its aggressive behavior. However, the new Hunter is a bit of a greenhorn and needs to both earn his stripes and gain some gear before taking on the Lord of the Seas. Along with a rescued companion, the Hunter is tasked with everything from gathering resources for the rebuilding of the village to defending it from ferocious monsters in order to become strong enough to defeat the Lagiacrus… and even greater perils beyond.

CyPhaCon 2013 Review by Alaska

CyPhaCon is a small convention, only in its third year, held at the Lake Charles Civic Center. The convention is mostly sci-fi-oriented, but it also hosts many gaming- and anime-focused panels and events. Considering that this was my first time attending CyPhaCon and being a cosplay guest, I had a great time.
