I was a big fan of Charlotte last season, with its unique take on super powers and its stellar cast of characters… apparently I wasn’t the only one who thought so. YouTube user AnimeMVfanUA created this AMV to try to express Charlotte’s amazing story in a much more compressed form, and I have to say… he did a good job.
This month will mark my one year anniversary of streaming, so lets celebrate that with some special recommendations! This month I’ll be recommending some of my favourite games to stream and some of my favourite streamers to watch when I’m not live myself!
StarCraft 2’s final chapter is upon is with Legacy of the Void. After the first two chapters focused almost entirely on Kerrigan – first on de-zergifying her and then on re-zergifying her – Legacy of the Void takes a different direction and focuses on a race that isn’t Kerrigan: The Protoss! But, all jokes aside, I have been waiting a long time for this so I am very glad to be writing this now.

We’re around 5-6 weeks into 2015’s Fall Anime Season, and we’ve had a chance to watch a few episodes of each of the shows. My wife – who also happens to be my editor, web-designer, post-processor, and co-contributor under her pen name Anne – and I would like to each share a couple shows each from this season that we have particularly high hopes for based off of these first episodes.
Monster Musume: Every Day Life With Monster Girls is, well, exactly what you’d expect. It’s a harem anime about a guy living with a bunch of monsters. You see, on this alternate version of Earth, various species of monsters have been discovered and recognized as people – collectively known as ‘liminals’ – in their own rights. The ‘Interspecies Cultural Exchange Act’ was ordained outlining the laws pertaining to liminals, most importantly that humans and liminals are forbidden from harming one another.
In an attempt to integrate them into society, liminals are assigned – usually voluntarily – to host families to allow both parties to come to understand more about each other. I say ‘usually’ voluntarily because our protagonist Kimihito is forced into the program by Ms Smith, an officer acting both as a police officer and a coordinator of the Interspecies Cultural Exchange Program, who shows up with a very confused lamia named Miia who he is expected to take care of. He probably could have refused, but he didn’t have the heart to turn her away. But that’s only the beginning…
