Bleach Series 15 Part 2 DVD Review

Bleach Series 15 Part 2 DVD Review
Recent months have seen the release schedule for Bleach become like buses on a rainy day. You wait hours for one only for several to come along at once.

But I digress, Series 15 Part 2 is the final part to the storyline that sees our heroes learning about the origins of the Mod-Souls whilst battling...

Create your own Vocaloid hologram concert with Hako Vision from ‘Something Kawaii’

Create your own Vocaloid hologram concert with Hako Vision from ‘Something Kawaii’
Whilst walking around the traders hall at the MCM London Comic Con I noticed something very unique and very cool that every Vocaloid loving fan simply must have. Taking pride of place on the Something Kawaii stall I was intrigued by a small box which had a movie playing a Hatsune Miku hologram concert song. Above the box was placed a mobile phone which I believe the owner had placed there to keep safe – but there was more to that box than...
