The Lily Podcast Episode 6 Will Be Delayed + Other News

Well, delayed until Tuesday, at least.

Usually I have the episode at least recorded and ready to go by Sunday evening, but that simply isn’t feasible this week given that I have to go to work very early tomorrow since I need to see the doctor to address some bleeding that has been, um, ongoing for nearly a year. Very irresponsible of me, I know. Maybe the diagnosis won’t be too bad.

Having a somewhat consistent schedule was fun (and stressful), but I really, really think I need to get back to playing and reviewing yuri visual novels. I actually feel terrible that this was how I ended a week that was supposed to be provide daily content, by the way. Sorry.

I can guarantee a Top 5 List post every Monday at the very least (excluding tomorrow, however, since it’s late and I have nothing). Hopefully I can churn out other content in addition to weekly visual novels, but no guarantees.

Lastly, I tried to cover the ED for SAO GGO (otherwise known as the ending song for Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online, “To See the Future”). And no, the piano work isn’t by me (no time to caress the ivory lately). My skills with the piano have really declined these days, anyways, haha. If you want to challenge your tolerance for bad singing, then give it a listen. Thanks in advance!


I hope you all have a wonderful week~
