The Lord and Master of Crescent Reviews Is Celebrating Something

Sorry for the lack of an update yesterday. The reason for that is because today is a very special day, and no it's not because it's Memorial Day, that is only important to people who live in the US. No, today is only special to me and the small group of people who are counted as being my friends and family. Do you guys know what day that is? *LOOKS AT THE BANNER ABOVE* Well now you know. Yes, it is my Birthday and for now I will keep my actual age a secret. Thus far my collection of gifts have been rather limited. I only got money from my father, Spice and Wolf Vol. 8 from my brother Jon (which sucks because I am STILL missing Vol. 5 and 7, he says it's in the mail but I don't believe him), and Bravely Default from my brother Aaron.

However, I will not spend this day patting myself on the back for merely existing this long, but rather I want to take time to say something to everyone who is reading this post as well as all the reviews I've put out thus far: Thank you SO much. I started Crescent Reviews after my previous venue for blogs went up in a puff of smoke. It is my hope that one day I can do this kind of review writing for a living. I know it's not all gumdrops and ice cream, but I love video games and anime and over the course of writing reviews I've developed a drive to write. And so I wanted some way to turn this dream into a reality, and thanks to all of you who read my blogs, and even spread the word that I'm out there, I'm a little closer to my dream. This May has just topped out at being my most viewed month since I started with 771 views as of writing this post. I know this is chump change compared to the big name internet icons, and it is no where close to the point where I can sustain myself, should I post ads on my blog, but it is a big milestone to me especially since January of this year my view counts has done nothing but go up. I know this isn't because of me, I haven't been promoting my reviews as much as I should if I want to make this my living. This is all because of you guys, you guys who found my reviews, came back to see what my new stuff, and have even promoted me else where. Thank you so very much, and please continue to support me. I promise to keep this going for as long as I can, so please continue to read my stuff and comment down below. Even if you want to tell me where I'm going wrong, I want to know so that I can improve this blog's experience. And as always,

Until next time

-Crescent, Thank you so much for reading my reviews.

Anime Review: Patlabor: The TV Series

Well the date is set for our move in. This Saturday my brothers and I are going to be living an apartment, well at least on paper, we don't know how soon we can get all our stuff (and by stuff we mainly mean Anime) into the new place, but we are hopefully going to get everything in the the new location soon. Hopefully, this will cut down on the amount of time I need to commute via bus to get to work and school. But for now I have an anime to review and this time I have an old classic to talk about: Patlabor.

Game Review: Witch and Hero

Tower Defense/RPG; 3DS eShop; CIRCLE Ent.; 2013
Sorry this review is a day late. I went to Michigan over the weekend to visit my Mom, which meant I had no access to a computer until I came back. Things are also going to be a little hectic around here because within two weeks or so my brothers and I are going to move into an apartment together. I am a little sad about moving considering I've lived in this house for several years, but nothing lasts forever. Anyway, even though I'm now working, I still want to do this for a living, unfortunately my view count isn't high enough for me to deem it worthy to put ads. So if you are reading this and want to help out, just send people my way. If you like me tell your friends about me, if you don't tell your enemies. Anyway, without further ado, it's time for my review of Witch and Hero a game about a Witch..... and a Hero.... I think that just about covers everything.

Anime Review: Dusk Maiden of Anmesia

Well things are very different from what they where last week. For one, I've got a job which means two things: One, I'm actually getting money, and Two, I have a LOT less free time, especially with the 2 hour bus ride I have to take to GET to work and another 2 hour bus ride to get back home. That and the fact that I'm starting to run up against deadlines in my pottery class and that this weekend I'm going to go out of town to visit my Mom and then after that me and my brothers will be getting ready to move means that I'm experiencing quite a bit more stress than usual. In fact, right now I'm not feeling that well and I just want to crawl into my bed and collapse. But I have a review to write so I apologize if I'm not my chipper self today, as I said, I'm not feeling 100% right now. Anyway on to my review of Dusk Maiden of Amnesia an anime about a ghost who can't remember anything but that doesn't keep her down.
