‘Welcome’ back to Cooking With Raitzeno, where more than a year of absence is not enough to save you from deep emotional trauma.
I’m gonna lead off with the question real quick for the tl;dr before I go long into how I got there: What’s your favorite instance of either a tabletop RPG featuring in anime/manga/LNs, or an anime-based occurance in a tabletop game you’ve played?
“Where’s part 1?” Shut up.
I’m a longtime fan of the series, and played a lot of the demo, so I came into the game with high but reasonable expectations. But after I picked up EO5 yesterday, I’ve found myself not enjoying it as much as I expected to, and I haven’t quite been able to put my finger on why.
Welcome to the Summer 2017 Ani-TAY Recommendation Collaboration! Assuming nobody else writes a better version of this before we have to publish, I’m your host this time, Raitzeno, and I’ve cooked up— no, thankfully, I haven’t. We’ve had some scheduling kerfluffles leading to me writing this up, but the overall process…
This is why we can’t have nice things.
Short answer: Everything would be terrible. Long answer:
So this is a thing in Japan. Ninty just announced a Metabble-themed New 2DS bundled with DQ11. Holy shit that is smexy. Too bad the XL/LL hurts when held by my itty bitty t-rex hands. ;_;
Disclaimer: Naka-Kon 2017 is not over yet, as of this writing Saturday afternoon; it goes on tomorrow, but I will not be attending, and I left earlier than expected today. This is because we got BLASTED with a snowstorm and I wanted to leave before I had to dig my car out without gloves. Thanks, Kansas weather!
I’m here at Naka Kon! Thankfully, I am attending as a civilian, not a guest chef.
Okay so obviously this is MAJOR SPOILERS for the ending of the series. But let’s be real here, most readers knew how this had to end a long, long time ago. To-LOVE-Ru has long been one of the worst offenders in terms of ecchi schlock harem romcoms and their complete lack of meaningful romantic developments. It’s not…
Roses are red, daisies are yellow, why are you still reading Cooking With Raitzeno? (FUCK YOU, IT’S CLOSE ENOUGH TO RHYMING. CWR is all about “eh, close enough.”)
Given certain recent events, I find that I must reevaluate the way I write cooking articles. Namely, I have gravely overestimated humanity’s intelligence. Therefore, this is a SPECIAL EDITION wherein I will be showing you how to make a snack whose degree of difficulty more correctly corresponds to the average…
The next class over is arguing over who gets what role in The Baka Guide to Musicals. Ganbare, losers. You’ll never be motemote like us.
Kristof is busy again so here’s a Filler of the Weeb again. Which anime would you like to see a video game of, and what genre would the game be?
Kristof is phoning it in, and I answered the call. In honor(?) of the recent Golden Slaine Awards, this week’s question is: What’s the last thing that caused you to drop a series?
So having played past the most blatantly censored chapter of Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, I find myself with mixed feelings. I honestly expected to be convinced the exact opposite way, and I’m still a little torn. I don’t like the idea of censorship, especially in many of Nintendo’s recent (and not-so-recent) decisions,…
Just got an email from the Mighty #9 crew about a “final survey” to pick what system I want my copy of the game on. Only one problem: the survey they linked doesn’t exist. Oops?
Title: Twister | Artist: Sawa | Game:The World Ends With You
NISA sent out an email today about taking preorders for Touhou Genso Rondo: Bullet Ballet. It’s apparently a full-HD remake, but I dunno which Touhou game it was originally. (It might not be one of the mainline series? It doesn’t mention ZUN anywhere and says it’s “set in the Touhou universe”.) It’s PS4-only, it…
