I’ve been reading this comic. It’s not Batman. It’s not Green Lantern. It’s not even X-Men. It’s Adventure Time with Fionna and Cake. And it’s pretty weird. This is where you say, “How weird is it?” No, seriously, go ahead. OK, cool.

When internal fanfiction becomes external professional fiction that’s still, uh, fan-oriented, uh, wait, what? Adventure Time!

I recently played the Mass Effect series (you can go here to see another post about the first game, actually), and there’s still a lot of salt in that mine – the analogy here is that I’m going to the well again, the Mass Effect well. Make sense? Good? You probably know one of the things in the first game that was such a big deal was the death of a character. So let’s talk about that. Character death in video games.

So I finally got around to watching K-On. I know it’s a little weird, this show no one watched, but I gave it a try and liked it. Maybe you should give it a try, too. Here’s what I thought of it.

Well, turns out Hyouka has not one but two posts on the old Super Fani already. I guess I shouldn’t write one of my own then? I mean, that’d be overkill. Except, of course, that Pontifus was wrong. So let’s fix that, shall we?
How was he wrong? Well, in “A Hastily Erected Shrine to Historiography in Hyouka” he claims the show isn’t a mystery, but a slice of life show. Whoops.

Let us talk about Sword Art Online, particularly its inevitable comparison in my brain to the .hack series, its stated themes, the reaction to it, and its unstated themes. I would ask if that made sense, but it’s probably the most cogent first line I’ve written for a blog in ages (and possibly in my dissertation, who knows?)

Let’s get a little personal again. I feel like I should tell you about the most recent time in which I was scared shitless. Unsurprisingly, it was while playing Amnesia: the Dark Descent. Yes, my life is boring enough that a scary video game is the scariest thing happening right now. I mean, dissertation existential drama is at a low right now, as it’s mostly carry on and write about slug people. So, yes, Amnesia.
