Although, some big companies (Good Smile Company, ...

Voice in Life Congratulations App Impression

Voice in Life Congratulations is an AI waifu/hunsbando app. It's kinda similar to SELF's AI waifu app, but has no alarm or schedule feature. Although, unlike SELF's waifu app, this app is more "free use friendly" and doesn't depend on "monthly premium fees".

My Trip - Wonder Con 2016

Last weekend, I went to Wonder Con which got moved from Anaheim, California to Los Angeles, California and it's basically the official sister of San Diego Comic Con.

The videos are taken as short parts on ...
