Shinkara is review show in which Taylor (in the form of an anime character) reviews Japanese games that have been underrated over the years, are new releases, or exude a certain amount of heart and soul that are worth featuring. In Japanese, Shinkara roughly translates to "Heart and Soul", which are typically qualities for the games Taylor reviews on the show. Shinkara doesn't feature a scoring system as it's more about showcasing games that Taylor thinks players would enjoy, regardless of a review score.
