Goblin Slayer Light Novel and Manga

The Goblin Slayer anime recently debuted, with a bit of controversy due to some folks being unaware of the graphic nature of its source material, so this seemed as good of a time as any to encourage people to check out said material! Goblin Slayer is a dark fantasy light novel series by Kumo Kagyu and…

Re:ZERO Ex, Vol. 2 (light novel)

If you’ve followed my posts on Hobby Scratch you know that Re:Zero is one of my favorite series, so this is really exciting news to me. I’ve been purchasing all of the available light novels that have been translated so far by Yen Press and have been enjoying them a great deal. If you liked the…

Re:Zero Emilia T-shirt Black

Coming in February 2017, the lovely Emilia-tan graces the front of this t-shirt from Cospa. The back features the symbol on the badge Emilia carries to prove herself as a possible successor to the throne of Lugunica. When importing clothing, always pay close attention to the sizes.

RE:ZERO KARA HAJIMERU ISEKAI SEIKATSU T-SHIRT: RAM & REM

Re:Zero’s maid sisters Rem and Ram are featured on this t-shirt from Groove Garage. The girls are looking particularly cheerful in their Re:Zero Starting Break Time From Zero chibi iterations.

Re:Zero Rem Luminous T-shirt Black

Coming in February 2017 from Cospa is this awesome t-shirt, featuring a battle-worn Rem in her deadly demon form. As you can see, her name is written in a font that reminds me of something straight off of an 80’s rock album cover. I’ve purchased quite a few Japanese t-shirts in the past, and there…

Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu 1/7 Scale Figure: Rem Soine Ver.

Before we talk about this lovely Rem figure, a quick lesson! The term “soine” or “添い寝”, means “sleeping together”. So basically, Rem is looking for a cuddle partner. Unfortunately, she’s only 1/7 scale, so good luck fitting on the futon with her, but I digress. Re:Zero fans are being spoiled lately with all of the…

Re: Zero – Starting Life in Another World

Recently, I watched the entirety of Re: Zero that has been released so far (as of this writing, that’s up to episode 18. In addition to that, I read the first novel), and let me just start off by saying I am quite impressed. I’m extremely picky about what shows I choose to watch and…
