The bodies are piling up as we approach the mid-point of the battle. A Place Further Than the Universe continues to intimidate the competition, but the fighting is fierce between just about everyone else.

So if you’re interested in things like camping, ramen, Sanrio, or babysitting, we’ve got you covered.
