Some of you may recognize this AMV, as it was one of the winners from the Ai-Kon AMV Contest, but this one was my personal favourite from the contest so I figured even those of you who read here who aren’t able to attend Ai-Kon deserved the chance to see this.
Interested in getting your feet wet in the many worlds of anime? Looking for a game that won’t put too much pressure on you if you’re not familiar with gaming?

Well, that’s our theme this week – today I’ll be offering you some games, anime, and books that will be great either if you’re interested in seeing what the fuss is, or if you have a friend and you want the right introduction that won’t scare them off…
Sucker Punch has released a new standalone inFamous title as a sort of spinoff to this year’s Second Son. This time they’re telling the backstory of Abigail ‘Fetch’ Walker. You’ll get to explore part of Seattle again in all of Fetch’s neon glory, with a completely new set of Neon powers.
This week’s recommendations are going to be for some anime, games and books that are good entertainment if you’re looking for something to fill some short spurts of downtimes. Whether it’s just one of those days where you’ve got an hour here or there to fill… or whether it’s simply you wanting something with a bit less of a commitment, these suggestions are for you.
Brynhildr in the Darkness takes place in Japan, following Ryouta - a student who, as we see in the opening scene, lost his dearest friend Kuroneko several years ago. Suddenly, a girl who very strongly resembles his childhood friend, even down to the name Neko Kuroha, transfers into his class and, well, his life is never to be the same.
After a strange accident at school, Neko approaches Ryouta and warns him that he will die if he doesn’t catch the bus home. Being brave, curious, and above all a bit of an idiot, our main character makes the decision to ignore her advice and see what happens. This leads to Neko, who just happens to be a witch who escaped from some lab, coming to his rescue and using her powers to save him… which is where it all begins.
