I received postcard from a reader that took an issue with the narrative of the impeding isekai breakout, citing "Konosuba, Gate:JSDF, Outbreak Company, Re:Zero, even Fushigi Yugi". Yes, of course. Twelve Kingdoms, too. It's just that I feel something missing from all of those.read more
There's a video on Youtube, captured from BBC that reports on Doki-Doki Literature Club. It's a shitty game that I meant to bash from the weaboo perspective: Yuri setting tea kettle for "212 degrees", then reading a book left-to-right.

I'm watching Girls Last Tour 06 and one thing bothers me about Ishii's airplane: it's far too large for the mission. She wanted to have a range of 2,000 km, or about 1,080 nautical miles (nm). But that is a range well within reach of a relatively basic …read more
