Project Precure

suite-precure

[Source] I’ve always wanted to watch the Precure franchise ever since the original first aired but I never got an opportunity to since this was before I got high-speed internet.

Ever since New Year’s Eve I’ve been playing the doujin games Touhou Pocket Wars Evolution and its expansion Evolution Plus. I found out about them pretty randomly when I stumbled upon some recent updates on the Touhou Wiki. I thought the art looked nice and before I knew it I was spending way too much …

aoi-point-blank-question

So I had originally decided to join in on this twelve days of anime thing since I’ve never done it in all the years I’ve spent blogging. However since it was a kind of a rushed decision and other things getting in the way, I am late to the party and only have the time …

imas-2-head-img

Everyone knew it was coming eventually but Namco Bandai finally officially announced THE iDOLM@STER 2 recently. It doesn’t come as a surprise given the 2nd Vision initiative to revitalize the franchise but now we have solid information about the title.
