30-Day Song Challenge Day 15: A Song People Wouldn’t Expect You To Like

Agh, we’re another day behind, but no worries – I immediately knew what to choose for this day! Keeping things short, like we do here in the cafe, let’s get to it!

From WataMote, “Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui” by Konomi Suzuki n’ Kiba of Akiba

Yep, it’s that screamo punk opening for WataMote, a show about a lonely, unimportant girl. At first, I was really skeptical about this opening. I don’t like screamo music at all, but something about this song feels surprisingly light. After several episodes, the song becomes catchy and the powerful music video that goes with it helps convey the emotions that Kuroki felt (the whole chain-breaking part). That little jazz groove in the middle is pretty chill, too. My brother was always trying to skip the opening when he watched it, and when I told him that I wanted to listen to it, he gave me a funny brow look.

From Tokyo Ghoul, “Unravel” by TK from Ling Tosite Sigure

You all probably know about my little fit with this song (yes, the composition has been completed for a while now, I’m just not sure how to record it yet). Anyway, TK is the vocalist, which The Huge Anime Fan kindly pointed out to me that he is the singer with the high-pitched screamish voice, and not a band 😛 I first heard him in Psycho-Pass, but after “Unravel” his style really grew on me. Perhaps that’s proof of me evolving as a listener . . .

And there you have it. Two songs that, if you knew me in person, you would NOT expect me to enjoy so much :> Alright, I’m gonna hop over to day 16 now. Ja ne ~

End of January Update 2/1/15

If you’ve been on the site within the past week or so, then you would’ve noticed that there’s been major reconstruction going on. I’ve been slowly remodeling the place, and will continue to do so for just a little longer until I am satisfied. Until then, you can find my reviews under the new headings – “breads, coffee, cakes, and caffé mochas (rated by stars).” Why? Doesn’t it feel more like a cafe? I don’t know if I’ve completely settled on the idea, but I’ll keep messin’ around.

Now here is the anime-watching update!

Recently finished:

Psycho-Pass – super crazy awesome, check out my review under “caffé mochas!”

WataMote – a wacky show, that’s for sure, you can check out my review under “coffee”

Black Bullet – ugh, the disappointment . . . review on the way

Yamada’s First Time – surprisingly entertaining, review coming soon!

Currently Watching:

No Game No Life – I’ve dropped this series like 3 times already, and I’m determined to finish it this time!

Log Horizon – what’s to say, lovin’ every bit

ALDNOAH.ZERO – hmm, still thinking about this second part

Parasyte -the maxim- – cool, yet kinda wanting this one to end soon, no offense

And yes, Sword Art Online Light Novel Volume One has made no progression. Damn.

Other than trying to save money for that Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! Collector’s Edition and the Limited Edition for Unbreakable Machine Doll, there’s not much new with me. What are you currently watching? Anything interesting or recommendable? What do you think of the new site? Leave a comment below and until next time, this has been

Winter Holiday Haul 2014

Hi everyone! I hope you are having happy holiday season! This year, I valued quality over quantity, so here is my holiday anime and game haul. Enjoy~


First up are the two gift items for my sister and brother. Betcha can tell who got what, right? Both Princess Jellyfish and Blue Seed were bought from Rightstuf.com as part of their holiday sale.


These games were bought from GameStop as part of their “buy 2 used get 1 free” sale. I was excited to see that they had a copy of Hyperdimension Neptunia, and I went ahead and picked up Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch because I thought it looked neat a while back. Journey was an inspired buy from YouTuber “Lucahjin” and her “Let’s Play” over it. I gave it to my older brother since he was the one who showed it to me.


This was a random pick-up, as it looked funny as hell. Marathoned the whole thing and even wrote a review about it, so check it out!


One of FUNimation’s “staff picks” was Psycho-Pass from the writer of Madoka Magica and Fate/Zero – Gen Urobuchi. With $20.00 for each part on Cyber Monday, it was a must-buy. I’ve seen part one so far and am drawn in, so expect a review on it soon!


The final items of my haul are Fate/Zero Seasons 1&2. I have been debating for the past several weeks about whether I should get the ridiculous blu-ray priced ones or the lesser DVD versions. Well I am proud to say that even in DVD Fate/Zero does not disappoint, and the dub is soooo good. Expect a review from one of my favorite anime here soon as well! Definately worth the buy 😀

And that’s all! Did you get any new anime or games this winter season, if so, what? Leave a comment below and until next time, this has been
