Faces of the Scouting Regiment – CMV/AMV SATURDAY (09/29/18)

Frankly, the quality of this CMV put out by Cosplay Videos by Diesel blows my mind. The amount of time, energy, planning, cooperation, and editing that went into this video titled "2000 Years Ago" is astounding. The collaboration of 20 cosplayers and 3 crew members was filmed in Germany. Entirely amateur, they have no film making experience, … Continue reading Faces of the Scouting Regiment – CMV/AMV SATURDAY (09/29/18)

Watch Along- Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul (sub) EP. 4

Is this show everything I hoped it would be? Yes, that and more. On to episode 4 and a resolution to the Chariose v Azazel debacle. I am dying to know Chariose's motivations in detail, and not understanding what makes Nina transform is all but driving me mad. Right from the beginning, Azazel is getting … Continue reading Watch Along- Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul (sub) EP. 4

Shoujo Thoughts: Otaku Ramblings on Facebook (Also Tumblr! “So many platforms, much outreach.”)

Hello, dear readers! You may or may not be aware that this blog recently reached 200 followers! In my limited experience, I've found that there are three things essential for growing one's blog. Those things are: frequent posts, honest engagement, accessible outreach. (Yes, that font had to be rainbow.) Regarding the previous, I don't always … Continue reading Shoujo Thoughts: Otaku Ramblings on Facebook (Also Tumblr! “So many platforms, much outreach.”)

Watch Along– Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul (sub) EP. 3

I wasn't exactly sure what to expect when I picked up this title, but I'm not disappointed thus far. It's positively marathon-worthy! On to episode 3! Apparently, the angels need the boy for some reason. He's gonna help restore humans' faith in the gods? The boy looks so innocent sleeping on the couch. Oooch. Azazel's … Continue reading Watch Along– Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul (sub) EP. 3

“You get a bad boy and you get a bad boy and you…!” Build-a-Harem Challenge Post, Demon Edition

I wanted so badly to attempt this challenge, but then life happened. And then I forgot about it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ And now, whilst making my return to blogging with a proficient laptop, I've remembered it again! It's like an (almost) birthday present to me! (Though by the time this post goes out, my birthday will have … Continue reading “You get a bad boy and you get a bad boy and you…!” Build-a-Harem Challenge Post, Demon Edition

This stunning dance performance takes the audience clearly from the beginning of AoT season 1 until … Continue reading Dance Attack on Wall Maria – CMV/AMV SATURDAY (09/22/18)

Watch Along– Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul (sub) EP. 2

I wasn't going to watch-along this next episode of Virgin Soul, but it only took a few seconds to beak that resolve, so let's knock this one out of the park, yeah? This seems like one of those shows that's impossible not to gush about as I view. So, the little boy's a girl... And … Continue reading Watch Along– Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul (sub) EP. 2

Botanical Garden Japanese Festival 2018

Like last year, I attended the Japanese festival at our "local" botanical garden, although this time I went with my friends (Ginger, Chronic, and Chronic's as-of-yet-alias-less brother) instead of Husband. Also unlike last year, we went on a Sunday instead of Saturday, and thus we had different experience options. I just re-read that opening paragraph … Continue reading Botanical Garden Japanese Festival 2018

First Impressions/Watch Along–RAGE OF BAHAMUT: VIRGIN SOUL, EP 1

Just about forever ago, I stumbled across a romantically themed AMV  featuring characters from Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul (not that I knew it at the time, mind you) and set to the song "Cinderella Step." I found the song is incredibly catchy, for one thing, but more importantly, the amount that I found myself … Continue reading First Impressions/Watch Along–RAGE OF BAHAMUT: VIRGIN SOUL, EP 1
