New Anime Season

Most of the first episodes of the new anime season are out, and it’s looking like the best in a while.  Three shows have begun really well: Zetsuen no Tempest, K, and Magi.

Recently I received Puzzle Strike and its expansion in the mail.  This is notable chiefly because it’s the first Kickstarter project I’ve ever backed.  I’ve got mixed feelings; the expansion actually contains a great deal of the same components that are in the base game, which I think is a terrible decision and makes me feel like it’s pretty overpriced; in addtion, some of the components were very badly printed, enough so that I’m trying to get replacements sent.  On the other hand, it’s a very good game, and I got some nice extra swag by backing the project.
