Review: Nisekoi Volume: 1 Blu-ray

Nisekoi Thumb

Love sucks. At least, the heart-wrenching monogamous allegory called love that we’re presented with in the real world. Thankfully, in the bright and cheerful realm of ecchi romance harem anime, it’s an adventure through the life of one unbelievably lucky individual and his many pseudo-girlfriends. I’ve never liked guys like these. … Continue reading

A Terrible Time is a combination of Charades, Cards Against Humanity, and Pictionary. This game is best played with friends who have no shame, since it may end very badly.
