Heralding from the rustic, old town of Los Angeles, California; Matthew now resides in Boston where he diligently researches the cure for cancer. In reality, though, he just wants to play games and watch anime, and likes talking about them way too much.

    I have been watching Kimetsu No Yaiba’s Anime and caught up with the Manga and it’s genuinely quite good. Can’t say it’s as good as Fullmetal Alchemist for now as the series isn’t done but there’s definitely a good chance. Thanks for recommending it!

    Just wondering, but for moderating comments what kinds of comments are allowed and are not?

      Generally, spam and highly offensive comments will not be approved. We recognise how passionate people can be with gaming, film, and TV so we’re pretty relaxed. Moderating is merely used so everyone can feel welcomed and enjoy themselves here.
