Steven Universe: A Review of Stewie Galaxy or Whatever That Show Everyone’s Into is Called

By Candace L., artwork above also by Candace

In this review, I’m going to full-on tackle (and hopefully answer) a question that I’m sure you have probably asked yourself. Situations in which you have asked yourself this question include:

  1. Attending an anime, game, or comic (none of which this series I’m going to be talking about actually is) convention in the last year.
  2. Checking out the Cartoon Network of Now to relive your childhood, but instead inevitably realizing you’ve made a horrible mistake and that you’re super old.

Don’t worry, I will cover that grenade. I will make that sacrifice for you.

Why the fudge pop is Steven Universe such a big deal?

Let me get this out of the way, and just say that if you want to avoid posts that are fraught with OTPs, spoilers, and ridiculous (yet deserved) epithets… then you came to the right place! I’m going to break this sonuvabitch down for you, free of charge. Approved for all audiences? Gather in close, friends, and get comfy.

By Mikey Dunn

There are two types of people that use Gmail. First, there are people who have switched over to Hangouts and won’t look back. Second, there are those who will stay with “g-chat” forever… at least until Google ultimately forces everyone to convert.

Are you on the fence? Are your colleagues trying to convince you to take the plunge? Or maybe you’re trying to stick to what works? Let’s put them face-to-face.

Mystic Messenger Characters

Initial Thoughts on Mystic Messenger

By Mikey Dunn

I don’t really play video games much on my phone, so whenever a new mobile gaming craze comes along I usually pass on it. Sometimes a game will successfully get my attention—like Neko Atsume, Miitomo, and Pokémon Go did—but I usually drop it after a few weeks.

But I am an anime nerd, so non-anime things that usually appeal to otaku fanbase—like Vocaloid—will probably appeal to me too. And that’s why I didn’t drop Mystic Messenger and continued playing with continued interest. And I was curious about the Korean otome hit of the year.

After playing through Zen’s route, here are my initial thoughts… (contains spoilers).
