So the Nintendo Switch launches here tomorrow, and I’ve just cancelled my pre-order. My concerns over the viability of the console have made me wary enough to step back from the console for a while.

This post is laying out my reasons as to why I cancelled my order, and may be something here you haven’t considered as well.

Looking for members to join a new Manga Round-About

Posted on July 10th, 2013 by Ryu Sheng |

So, i’m looking for a few people to join me in a new monthly section of the blog, called Manga Round About.

Ideally i’m looking for 3 others minimum to work with it on me. The process is simple, each month a member of the team will pick 2 titles, the first licensed and the second unlicensed for everyone to read. Each week after that in order we’d each post a review of the 2 titles, followed in the final week by a Round-About style discussion on the two titles. This part will possibly be done as a skype call, recorded and released as a podcast, along with a transcript post on my blog, as well as the announcement of the next 2 titles and why they were choosen.

I think one unlicensed and one licensed is a good balance, hopefully by bringing some great unlicensed stuff to the fore we can get them licensed, as well as bringing attention to some great but under known already licensed stuff.

If your interested please use the contact me page.

Closing the doors, once and for all

Due to circumstances outside of my control I’m having to close the blog completely. I have just been made redundant and have to put my kids first, so the blog, computer and other luxuries are all going. It’s been fun writing this blog, and it’s been great being part of an interesting if whacky community. I wish you all the very best of luck for your future endevours
