Anime Review: Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!

Magical girl anime is, admittedly, not something I’m hugely accustomed to. I saw a bit of Sailor Moon growing up and never really saw any more of the genre.

Video Game Review: Doki Doki Literature Club

When I first picked up Doki Doki Literature Club, I knew the sort of wild ride I was going to get into, thanks to the surge of popularity the game enjoyed on release. I played this a while back, so coming back to it now to review feels almost nostalgic. I noticed I somehow never reviewed the title back then and I wanted to at least review it once, especially now the hype is done. After all, there are still recommended videos on my YouTube feed, all to do with this seemingly innocuous title. So what makes Doki Doki Literature Club so good?
