Concert Impressions: DIR EN GREY “Never Free From the Awakening” TOUR 15

Japanese band DIR EN GREY is no stranger to the United States. They've been playing shows across America for a little over a decade and thankfully call San Francisco one of their regular stops. The show tonight is in partnership with Goldenvoice who has presented the band in San Francisco for as long as I can remember. The venue is Slim's, a far different place from The Regency Ballroom a mile away that the band has frequented so often. Smaller, more intimate, and much more prone to selling out. If you don't want to get stuck in the cold or stuck in the back you have to arrive early. The formal name for the tour is "Never Free From the Awakening."

ONE OK ROCK Concert Impressions

ONE OK ROCK, hailing from Japan, has returned to California. They've played as part of the Vans Warped Tour in 2014 as well as Slipknot's KnotFest so California isn't exactly unknown to them. The San Francisco Bay Area, however, is. They had a stop in Mountain View but that was it. They still haven't made their way up to San Francisco proper so hopefully next time.

DIR EN GREY Returns to America in November

In just under a week Japanese metal band DIR EN GREY will return to America for scant few shows. One of those shows will thankfully be in San Francisco on Wednesday, November 4. It is presented by Goldenvoice.

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance (PS4) Review

It’s been over a decade since the launch of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. The SRPG franchise from Nippon Ichi Software began back on Playstation 2, appeared on the Playstation 3 a few times, showed up on both Sony and Nintendo handheld systems and now it’s making its debut on the Playstation 4. With Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance, Nippon Ichi Software President Sohei Niikawa is looking to evolve the franchise to the next level and with its addictive strategy game play, charming characters, and deep character customization, makes Alliance of Vengeance the strongest game in the series to date.

Backstage Interview with Momoiro Clover Z & KISS @ Anime Expo 2015

On July 2, 2015 we attended a backstage interview and photo session with Momoiro Clover Z (Momoclo) and the group KISS. This was right before Momoclo took the stage for their concert and KISS would join them to receive the prestigious 2015 “Special Commissioner’s Award” from Japan’s International Short Shorts Asian Film Festival for their music video "Yumeno Ukiyoni Saitemina" in which Sushio from the anime studio Trigger worked on by designing the characters in the animated version of the music video.

SUPERBEAT: XONIC Super Limited Editions Online Orders Only

For our long term readers, you may be aware of my love for music rhythm games and the DJMax series probably made the largest impact on me.
