Fourth (or possibly seventh, depending on how you look at it) mainline installment in the Hyperdimension Neptuniaseries, Megadimension Neptunia V-II tells an enjoyably silly, satirical and allegorical story about the upheaval that comes to the games industry any time there’s a new generation of hardware.

The “Build a Harem” Tag-It’s been a while since a Community tag post, so let’s let our hair down a bit, since the ever-charming Raistlin was kind enough to nominate me with some very nice words! This particular tag originated from Cactus Matt over at the excellent Anime Q and A blog — he’s a frequent collaborator with a … Continue reading The “Build a Harem” Tag→
Waifu Wednesday: Uni-We’ve already covered quite a few Neptunia waifus in our weekly Waifu Wednesday celebrations, but there are still plenty more where those came from.

Waifu Wednesday: Nepgear-A month of coverage for a Neptunia game is as good a reason as any to celebrate my favourite series waifu and indeed joint-favourite waifu of all time (alongside Amane from Grisaia). Yes, it’s Nepgear, the long-suffering sister of series protagonist, reluctant and self-conscious protagonist of her own games (Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 and its subsequent remake Hyperdimension … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Nepgear→
Waifu Wednesday: Vert-Everyone has a favourite in the Neptunia cast, but even if she’s not top of your list, it’s hard to dislike Vert. The blonde-haired, big-breasted goddess of Leanbox personifies Microsoft’s Xbox platform as well as embodying the anime trope of “beautiful foreigner” thanks to her physical characteristics. And as with the rest of the Neptunia cast, there’s … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Vert→
