The Wandering Witch – Gets Scientific?
Welcome, all, again. We will in this column discuss one of those series acknowledged here last time for their beautiful artwork and strong stories--Alderamin on the Sky. Admittedly, this season has been characterized by unusually detailed artwork and attentive--dare I say, sometimes overly attentive--character development in a surprising number of shows. Even so, Alderamin on the Sky is special.

The Wandering Witch – Visits an Empty Restaurant
Welcome, all, again. I am incredibly excited about this season's offerings(!), a number of which seem to strongly emphasize artistry in both story-telling and visuals. But I am especially enjoying Sweetness and Lightning (sweetness & lightning on Crunchyroll.com), a show which explores the adaptive nature and strength of family.

The Wandering Witch – Cheers on the Bike Club!
Welcome, all, again. Even as this rather hit-or-miss viewing season winds down, I manage to remain impressed with the quality of certain programs. And one program that deserves special mention before it rides off into its sunset is the motorcycle-themed BAKUON!!

Siege Spots – World of Warcraft by Daniel Lisi
World of Warcraft is the second book I've read in the Boss Fight Books line, and it's a product of their third successful Kickstarter. Yeah, three of them. Like many of the other books in the series, it's a deep dive into its game, talking about it from a beautiful mix of objective and subjective perspectives, and I love it.

Siege Spots – Odin Sphere Leifthrasir Review (PS4/Vita)
Originally released in 2007, Odin Sphere was largely praised by critics for its deep and complex gameplay. At the same time, however, reviewers and players alike noted that the game suffered from slowdown that could sometimes make the game unbearable. Now, two console generations later, we have a remake of Odin Sphere called Odin Sphere Leifthrasir.

The Wandering Witch – Gets Shorted (Again)!
Welcome, all, again. As with the last few viewing seasons, we are once again being introduced to some fun new shorts. And, personally, I'm a huge fan of the style. Shorts offer a quick hit of anime when it might otherwise be difficult to fit in viewing time, or when you just don't have the wherewithal to watch a full-length episode.

Siege Spots – Valkyria Chronicles Remastered (PS4) Review

Siege Spots – Valkyria Chronicles Remastered (PS4) Review
In 2008, Valkyria Chronicles launched on PS3 to critical acclaim. Critics agreed that it's strategy RPG gameplay was a unique treat not to be missed. Now, 8 years later, after recently relaunching on Steam, it's found its way to the PlayStation 4. It's also found its way into my hands for the first time, after years of being curious about it. So, how does it hold up?

The Wandering Witch – Flying, Frying, and Desperately Trying
Welcome, all, again. Let me begin by admitting that I have been completely overwhelmed by the choices this season, and have not had the chance to watch even half of what I wanted or planned. That said, I love what I have seen!

The Wandering Witch – Gets ERASED?!
Welcome, all, again. This is proving to be a glorious viewing season, with offerings for fans of all genres. I absolutely love KONOSUBA-God's blessing on this wonderful world!, a comedy/fantasy wherein a newly deceased youth coerces the goddess juggling his soul to accompany him to a world seeking heroes; likewise Ooya-san wa Shishunki!, a comedy short about a middle school landlady and her tenants.
