Hah, after writing about good and liking stuff here I am asking for recommendations. Geez, just who do I think I am. Anyway, I’ve been watching a lot of romance shows lately (Honey and Clover, NANA, Toradora!, Bokura ga Ita) and I’m looking for something else to watch along those lines. But I’m not really […]Read More Help Wanted, Apply within
I’m going down to Okaton. Going to eat me lots of… dangos? Pocky? What is the preferred food of anime conventions anyway? So yes, for the second time of my life I am actually going to an anime convention and I’m pretty excited. I mean it’s not a real big stretch, I live 20 miles […]Read More Otakon or Bust
So this isn’t anything serious, but I was glancing through the headlines on Anime News Network, and I ran across this one: “Last Exile’s Murao to Draw World Destruction Manga” All I could think was, “Wow, we really should stop him before he destroys the world with that. Because that’s where I keep all my […]Read More Oh ambiguity, you could possibly be a friend, sometimes
So am I the only one who finds it a bit ironic that ANN is doing a “real time” preview of the Spring Season. Granted, it is news. And even if I disagree with their reviews, they do seem to do it every years. But they spend so much time and effort trying to convince […]Read More Umm… Why is ANN doing a Spring Preview?
So there are plenty of days that I remember quite clearly. Like the day the Challenger blew up, I was sitting in a third-grade classroom, huddled around a television with about thirty or so other students. Pretty much all because Christa McCauliffe (the teacher on the shuttle) was from New Hampshire (and I was in […]Read More Wait? Seirei no Moribito?
So contrary to recent accounts, I have not died. Really. But I have been kind of sick lately. Although that’s got nothing to do with why I’m writing this blog post. As most people who read this blog may have noticed, I’ve kind of been on hiatus. Now I could make up a bunch of […]Read More I Got some ‘splaining to do
So I picked up this little gem off of the SciFi Wire (the news service for the SciFi channel) that Leonardo DiCaprio might be teaming up with Warner Brothers to produce a two-part Akira movie. Somehow the thought of DiCaprio being involved just invokes images of him yelling “Tetsuo!” Not that it’s really going to […]Read More From King of the World to Kaneda
So is it me or is this show a play on Arthurian myth? With Lelouch as Mordred, CC as Morgan Le Fay against Arthur (Euphie) and Lancelot (Suzaku)?Read More Just a thought on Code Geass
There’s this phenomena that I learned in psych class called “learned helplessness”. Basically, some researchers put a dog in an electrified cage where it couldn’t escape and eventually the dog just laid down and stopped trying to escape. That’s how I’m feeling about the industry lately. I want it to suceed. Call me old fashioned, […]Read More A little ditty on the industry
