Tales of Zesteria: Fun re-telling of a classic

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope everyone is having a great time. Before I go and get ready for the festivities this evening, and they are just this evening, no Halloween conventions for us, I just wanted to leave a little post talking about Tales of Zestiria. If you are into the “Tales of” games then you probably have already picked it up and figured this out. It’s the Once and Future King. Continue reading Tales of Zesteria: Fun re-telling of a classic

Nostalgia and Giveaway!!

We went to Suncoast (yes they still exist!) and bought a few things. We love going to Suncoast and actually owning DVD’s and talking to people about anime. Streaming is great, but there’s nothing like owning a hard copy of something you love.  Plus it was hard to believe we didn’t own a copy of Akira or Bladerunner! So we purchased those along with a few other things. We wonder if everyone is as addicted to Orphan Black and it’s awesomeness as we are. If you watch it, then probably.  And the manager of the local Suncoast totally gets it.

The Legendary Flavor

We love the ‘Tales of’ games here and Tales of Zestiria is coming out next month!!  So excited. We’ve been playing some here in anticipation of the new game. A good JRPG is a thing of beauty.

Finally watched ‘K’

Otakon just ended and we had a blast, despite the technical glitches. A great end to our con season for the year.

Despite the euphoria, this post is actually to talk about a series we just finished (K as you might guess from the title of the post) .

This series has been out for a while as have some of the various adaptations and the movie.  ‘K’ is one of those interesting anime because there hasn’t been a lot of buzz about it over here as much as there was in Japan. This is definitely part of why we haven’t watched it yet, it was easy for it to slip out of mind. Now there’s a new season coming out this fall , which has been licensed by Viz, and it seemed like the perfect time to watch it.

Rice Recipe from Manga Cookbook.

I was making sushi rice the other night for some home made maki-absolutely delicious. I have made this many times, but I also have The Manga Cookbook. I haven’t made much from this cookbook, although I have had it for a while, so I decided to make the sushi rice recipe from this cookbook than the one I regularly make. These recipes are really intended for children, so they’re very simple.

But I bought this cookbook because it’s adorable-see!
