A normal day at Azure Flame. It’s been a year of ups and downs, of anime gems and utter disappointments- a year when I’ve alternated between craving more and feeling utterly fed up with the continuing deluge of episodes that take no account of the fact that people might have other things to do than [...]

Sometimes, you just have to do something completely shameless- for example, just by typing “Dumbledore is gay” here, I can ride the wave of a recent news story and attract more viewers. And now that all you people have come to this blog for no reason, go away again whilst the regular readers click onwards. [...]

Yuuichi Well, I guess as far as harems go, I didn’t do that great a job of assembling one, but who cares, for I have gained the ultimate prize- Ayu. Admittedly, she is still confined to a wheelchair and not yet in good enough shape for some of the more energetic games I like to [...]
