Hahaha, oh wow. How can I follow up on Os’s room entry? I mean, damn. Frilly curtains, hello kitty stuffed animal and beanie. Whew… Well I hate to disapoint the lot of you looking for a good laugh if Os got your hopes up but my rooms a bit not-so-feminine.

The deal with my Room is that, at first glance, it’s not really the room you would expect of someone who writes on an aniblog. It’s more or less just your typical college students room, well, a bit neater than a typical college students room. But if you look close enough, beneath the surface you’ll see some tell tale signs of an Otaku living there. I’m gonna one up Os on this entry and include pictures of my room and if you click on them you can see them in a nice High resolution.

So we at Karoshi have been planning on doing this for a while now, but because of various reasons, we did not get off our asses and do it until today. We wanted to do it when there were other singaporeans bloggers who did it… but eh (there were two more places but I dont remember who, my appologies). This will be a two parter weekend exclusive (maybe three-parter, but I have no idea because we’ve lost our loli).

Let’s get started, shall we? *warning: if you have a slow computer, you may be here for a while* (Read More »»»)

367. A big Cross-Series Update: By Caliburn

You’ve probably all forgotten me by now, but I’m a writer here on Karoshi, my name’s Caliburn. Lately I’ve been way too busy to watch anime, let alone blog about it, with parties, school work, video games (Still can’t put down Gears of War), and my lovely new Wii in the way. But here I’ll give you all a quick sum up of how I think things are going with the series I was tracking.

Death Note: This was my top pick for the season at first, but I haven’t watched any of it since episode five. Why is this? I don’t really know, the directing and scenes in episode one were FANTASTIC in my opinion, the music, scenery and artwork is pretty top notch. but as I waded through the episodes I realized that Death Note is just better suited to be a manga. There are so many thought provoking inner monologues and mind games that it just doesn’t look good on the screen. Also, I feel like it’s moving really fast. When I first got into the Death Note manga, there were four volumes out in English by Viz, so I’ve just been picking those up as they come out. No scanslations or anything, the long gap and lengthy amount of time it would take for me to read through a volume felt just right. I’m not sure if some other people feel the same way as I do about this, perhaps it’s because I have some more unique circumstances with the way I paced my reading of the manga.

379. Code Geass’ Dirty Secret to Success… and I Mean Dirty

Now, a while back I wrote a post about getting into Code Geass. I also wrote about how I was surprised by it’s high level of achievement on the awesome-scale but I had no idea why it was that awesome and addicting. Note that if you dont come here often or read my stuff , I’m more of a shoujo/josei/romancy show type of guy. And though I do like the occasional action/adventure/shoot ’em up series, it usually isn’t on the top of my to-watch list if there’s something else, say, something like Nana for instance.

Now to the topic at hand. Code Geass Episode 12. HO SHI-. First off, the ending was a splendid scene. I love scenes where there is something falling, and in this case, rain. These melancholy -LOL- type scenes are what I live for. Code Geass has this ability to make endings that make you drool for the next episode, and this was one of them. It was simply great and now I cant concentrate in school because I’m thinking of episode 13 -slight exaggeration-.

That is one conclusion I reached. The other reason is this: (Read More »»»)

378. Ikimonogakari – Ryuusei Miracle (Ayakashi Ayashi OP)

Ryuusei Miracle is the opening to the anime Tenpo Ibun Ayakashi Ayashi, and it is by far the most favoured theme song of the fall anime season.

The PV is rather unusual and the meaning or story behind it isn’t clear, or maybe it just doesn’t have one. Either way, it’s pretty obvious that shooting starts have magical powers and are able to come out of people’s fingers. Yes, the video is very odd and the first thing that I thought after watching it was, “What??”. But no, it isn’t strange enough to be classified as “eccentric” (we have YUKI for that). It’s just that, “What?”. (Read More »»»)

376. Mythical Creatures, They Are Not

Inspired by this, I’m going to do a quick post. Ooooh, I’m so adventurous.

Here was a conversation I had with my friend in the morning:

“Hey man, how’s it going with the situation with her?”
Dude. I dont know. One moment she’s ignoring me, not giving me the time of day. Then later, she’ll be all nice and wont stop talking to me through AIM… God damn tsunderes, man.
“What?”
Uh, nevermind.

So there we have it. Tsunderes are not fantasy, they are indeed, real living creatures. They wear human skin so watch out.

370. The world of anime blogging through the eyes of a Loli (so far).

I’m only just realizing it now at how tedious and complicating anime blogging really is; it was never noticeable to me when I was just a reader. Following the posts of the various blogs that I frequented never gave me the chance to think about what goes into each post. All the effort and time people put into it was never apparent. But now that I’m on the other side of the window, I’m seeing things that I wasn’t able to before.

The main thing I noticed was how you have to strive to make your blog different from the others. It needs to be noticed, to be distinguished, and has to have an element of “special.” To do this, there are numerous steps to take. And a person does all this just so it can have readers; because really, our blogs are empty plastic bags floating in the wind aimlessly without the readers.

The method to gaining readers and a reputation in the anime blogging world is a struggle, more so for the newbies than the others. No one wants to get lost in the monotonous sea of Haruhi episode posts and fade into the background. Nobody wants to read the same thing over again. But when you can’t think of anything else, what else is there to fall back on? And isn’t that what anime blogging is about; a bunch of nerds with nothing better to do than to talk about anime?

However now, the basic episode post is no longer on the hot market. This is where things like Commentary and Editorials come into play. (Read More »»»)

And of course I’m talking about Vietnamese New Years -I guess the Chinese too, but they copied us- which isn’t until February 18th.

Either way, though there are still a couple hours until midnight here, happy January 1st. I’ll be playing games with some friends all night, driving home… and clearing more backlog. My vacation is quickly dwindling and there is much to be done.

Get me when it’s time to get my little red envelopes, THEN we’ll talk about a the new year. Now calls for Gears of War. My blogmates will edit in their wishes and resolutions or that such nonsense -maybe- later. Refresh that baby.
