In light of Sword Art Online becoming very, very bad, I was more than skeptical to once again string my heart up on the line for yet another video game anime. However, I have never been so happy to say that I was wrong. No Game No Life, with its intelligent story-line and hilarious characters, was an absolute treat to watch. And take it from someone who is still licking her wounds over SAO, No Game No Life makes it all better…almost.

Here are words I never thought I’d say about this show – Kelly was the highlight this week.

After last week’s disappointment of an episode, I went into this one hoping for something, anything to improve over last time. Despite my earlier jokes about how this show seems to respond to my criticisms, this week didn’t shoot for the fences. At the same time, it did at least have some good things going for it.

Hey y’all! Today I’m going to be reviewing the debut song from on of the contestants of Superstar K2 (a Korean singing competition), Park Boram. She didn’t win her season, but she was signed to MMO Entertainment and made her debut about a month ago. This review may be controversial, as it will be discussing things like weight and diets, and whether her weight loss was healthy or not. So let’s take a look at Park Boram’s debut single (featuring Zico of Block B), Beautiful (literally, the translation is ‘Got Prettier’).

Welcome back to Give It a Shot! This week, we’re going to be talking about one of the few artists that embodies both old school class and new school values and philosophy. Just unknown enough to give you some hipster creed but well known enough that you can find her fans scattered around the world. If 1920s retro blended with a monochrome-future is wrong, then there are plenty of people who don’t want to be right. That artist is none other than Kanas City native Janelle Monáe.
