It’s like poetry, it rhymes. A dose of online nostalgia.

I’ve assembled something!

I bought this Lego Y-Wing shortly after seeing Star Wars : Episode IX : Skywalker-palooza in the theaters, in December of 2019.  It has been sitting in its box ever since, slowly collecting a fine layer of dust and taunting … Continue reading

I watched some shonen battle anime

I have pretty bad taste in anime. Basically I watch either comfy slice of life shows where nothing really happens but you get a nice fluffy feeling afterwards or trashy harem shows where between three and ten inexplicably hot girls … Continue reading

Friendship ended with PROJECT DIVA. Now CHRONO CIRCLE is my best friend.
