First off, like usual, I’m so behind on my first thoughts review of the Summer Season that I might as well wait until 2 weeks pass by so I can write the midway season review instead. Secondly, I am sorry for the lack of posting this past month, but it was mainly due to the fact that I was unlocking as much stuff from Dynasty Warriors 7, which will be a part of the topic today, so let’s get started.

Random Youtube Findings – Pokemon: The Musical and Mario-Bruno Mars Parody?

After coming back from Europe, catching up on the Summer Season, fully watching Star Driver, and recovering from jet lag, I decided to scurry around some music+anime-related fan-made videos on youtube. Of course, there’s the usual piano, guitar, bass, band, and even violin renditions of OPs and EDs on there, as well as the amazingly done Mario Paint Composer ones (in which I also found a Nyan Cat version which I kind of do and don’t regret). But I ended up finding two videos that struck me (though they strayed a bit from the anime concept a bit) the most: (Read More)

After starting this vector nearly a year ago, I finally vectored the finishing touches to this image. Below are non-background, black background, and white background (1280×800) jpeg versions of a vector of Gauche Suede from Tegami Bachi based off of one of the manga images that I did on Photoshop.

Katamari Damacy – Google Chrome/Firefox 4 Hack

Na na~ na na na na na na na~ Katamari Damacy~!

I know this is non-anime related, but after being introduced to this, I felt like I needed to share it with the world. Recently, a programmer made this hack that allows you to roll up items on your browser! Now, you can roll a Katamari around your browser and watch everything attach to it as your Katamari grows. You’re also allowed to decide whether or not you want background music while you roll everything up. All you need to do is copy and paste the javascript and paste it onto the URL browser. It’s pretty straight forward from there. Happy Rolling~!

He’s peering into your soul so you can contract with him in a tabletop game as well!

Normally, on Friday nights, I would be hanging out with my friends in the tabletop club since we have games on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. However, since this weekend is Zenkaikon and majority of the club is a part of the anime club, those who had membership passes ended up going (I am not with them because they have group weekend passes while I will only be going on Saturday). So, with the left over tabletop club members that either aren’t into anime or are too poor to go to a convention, we decided to make and start up a Puella Madoka Magi tabletop game – based on the Dresden Files rulebooks – with some adjustments here and there.

Anime Clubs – How do/did you advertise?

Here’s Yuki advertising the SOS Brigade. How do you advertise your anime club?

About 3 years ago, I wrote a blog post on animeacademy about comparing my old anime club to Genshiken and asking how big everyone’s anime club is/was. Now, I want to ask a new question about everyone’s anime club: How do you show off to get new members?

The Goal Scoring Shot: Is it the camera angle?

Currently, Aniki (chigaimasu) and I are keeping up with Giant Killing as our “sports type” anime for the season. When we watched episode 4, we noticed 2 things that were peculiar. At first, we blew it off as a camera angle fault so we could finish the episode. But when we went back to check, it didn’t look like a camera angle fault at all. So, today, I’ll bring up these 2 problems out into the open as well as our conclusions. Note: This post will be similar to Aniki’s old X’s and O’s post. (Read More)

From the fryer into… brown bags… 2?

Ugh. Here we go again.

For those of you who came from the old blog, you may recognize this title. My first ever post was about my high school cafeteria and prices while being related to anime (which I used Code Geass) in some sort of fashion. I also had some positive feedback on the post, which of course made me happy. Anyway, you’re probably wondering why I’m reusing this title. “Are your classmates boycotting against prices again?” is probably what your thinking. Well, no. Actually, it’s something that I believe that should be protested against. (Read More)

Start of the New Year – Wanted Plots/Perspectives for Anime

They’re so cute together, but another perspective of school life.

After having an entertaining Christmas (playing Soul Calibur IV with cousins, being entertained by Little Big Planet Engineering, and eating melon pan), I have to set my mind back to posting. So, the first post of the year (despite my New Years post), will be about this: What type of plots/perspectives would you like to see as an anime? Most anime out there, most that I’ve seen that is, takes the perspective of school life (whether it’s realistic or not). Of course, there’s different variations of that perspective, such as harem, shoujo-ai, shounen-ai, straight love (I don’t know what you would call that in otaku terms), etc. Actually, almost every anime has at least one school girl in it. Anyway, here’s what I would like to see. (Read More)

Society Doubts – Can an Otaku Learn Something new from Anime?

Watching a fictional character’s life doesn’t exactly mean we’re learning something.

Around my area, especially in my high school, people degrade anime to the point that they believe that it’s all just fanservice and/or entertainment. They take anime as sci-fi, since most anime have characters with supernatural powers that defy the laws of physics. In their point of view, it’s very understandable. Someone who hasn’t taken the time to study a subject cannot possibly understand what it’s about. In my previous post, I have talked about animated children shows and how they can teach them new things about the world. However, what about the animated shows for the older audience? Since the older otaku audience is more experienced with the world, can an otaku learn something new from anime?
