Real Maid Impression

So the series starts off with a normal guy who somehow found a mysterious website selling "robot maids". He then ordered one and a package came over with instructions on how to assemble your own robot maid. But he had to wait for another package to fully complete his maid. Soon after, the ma...

Study shows instant ramen (or processed ramen) digests very slow in your stomach compared to fresh ramen. Here's the video that will explain the comparison and details thanks to the researcher, Dr. Braden Kuo. Um, yeah. That looks disgusting. I've been mostly sticking wit...

Usually people wear very dark and very heavy make-up. The clothing usually follows the modern ‘goth’ AKA wearing mostly black with spikes and chains.An example.This is also heavily influenced by more ...

Witch Craft Works Episode 12 Final Impression

On this episode, Honoka summons the White Princess once again for final battle against the master mind.So the finale was pretty much alright. The action was okay and it was nice to see some of the characters trigger another event after another.

Log Horizon Season 2 and Quick Comparison with Sword Art Online

So the finale episode of Log Horizon announced season 2 is coming this Fall which is great. However, unfortunately, the series will be competing with Sword Art Online's second season on this coming Fall season.

Daily iOS Game Impression - Slash of Dragoon

Slash of Dragoon is an RPG with a battle system that's very similar to Fruit Ninja. In other words, just imagine something like Puzzle and Dragons plus Fruit Ninja combined.
