Sorry for the lack of updates, but this past weekend, I married my soulmate. Over the last couple months, since we arrived at the new year, it was crunch time. We had to make sure the wedding details were set. I had to make sure the groomsmen had their suits ready and their shoes, ties, etc. Things were quite hectic. Now that the knot has been tied, things should slow down and I hope to have the time to contribute more to the website.
Here are my views on Fate Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works. For those who have Netflix, both seasons are currently available for streaming. It is probably a much better option, than to shell out the crazy amount the Blurays are going for.

Next week will see the release of Part 2 of this highly anticipated film. Mark your calendars! 10/20, 10/22 and 10/27! Check out official page for theatre details and ticket purchases!
