A couple of seasons ago I replied to a post about WIXOSS's first episode, which said it had a strong Madoka vibe, saying that I didn't really feel it. I kind of have to eat my hat on that one, as the show did turn out to be seemingly influenced by Madoka in several ways. I hope I won't b...

Well no, not everything . In fact I'm rather selective (I think). But none the less, in two years I've accumulated a fair amount of stuff ! Woah, there is some quality stuff in there. Most of my collection is figs (and a few series of manga; I'm nearly done collecting Berser...

I made oyakodon today. I actually have a full set of pictures of the preparation, but I'll settle for posting the final one.

Ah yes, the old finger test. Great if it works for you, but not all people's muscles have the same consistency, plus it's still not exactly accurate. There are plenty of people whose intuition works great for cooking meat (and most of the time I count myself among them), but there...

Hot damn, that looks nice. I got one of these babies about a week ago. I've made a couple of steaks since, and they've turned out absolutely awesome. I'll try and make another one and put up pictures soon. Temperature is critical in cooking good meat, so having a good thermometer basical...

But they skimped on the faceplates. Very nearly all nendos have three faceplates, but Satsuki only comes with two. Podium or no, people would be upset if she were expensive.

For what it's worth, they really are rather ill-defined. MAL does list Nichijou and Uchouten as SoLs, though I cannot agree to that myself. You can see a sizable sample of what MAL considers SoL by clicking on the SoL badge here. For me, a slice of life is just that; a show whose main goal is to...

Azumanga Daioh Auira Sora no Woto While SnW undoubtedly falls under the SoL tag, I'm not sure I'd recommend it to someone who's just looking to watch an SoL. Most of the times that means they're looking for a certain sort of comfy, and I feel that it's better not to go into it e...

I framed the Homura poster that I got with my preorder of Rebellion. I also framed the bronzed Madokami card that came with the new edition original series production note. This is the first time I've framed anime stuff. Not quite sure where to put them. http://i.imgur.com/NF5vsoH.jpg http://i.i...

My oh my...
This is some dilemma. On the one hand, it's one of my favorite shows.
On the other, we're talking 250$. And that's before shipping and taxes. It'd probably end up costing me closer to 350$ overall.
Crap.
