I put off watching this episode until now because Genshiken is one of my top two favorite anime of all time -Hachikuro being the other series, of course- and I felt that if this episode did not get my full 100% attention, it would be blasphemy. I’ve been keeping myself back for two nights now because I was sleepy, and if there was a chance that there would be a moment where I would think of anything that ISN’T related Genshiken, then that would not be the time.

When the time came, OH it was good. Sure, it’s pretty loyal to the manga, so it may bore some people, but just being able to watch it animated again, it just felt so good. When season 1 finished, I felt like crying -note: I didn’t really, but I was welling up-. I wasn’t going to cry because the scenes were moving, but it was a series where I felt such a good connection, I didn’t want it to stop. I wish it was like One Piece: it never ends. This episode really brought back those amazing feelings. (Read More »»»)

First off, thank you to all those who helped me with suggestions for part 1. I have yet to make any changes because of my lack of time, but odds are, I will just do what everyone suggests me to do… you know, unless it’s a suggestion like “Delete it all and fill it with pics of traps” or something. Only then, I would half consider it.

Either way, here’s the next part. Again, any suggestions would be appreciated as I’m still down by around 500 words. : (Read More »»»)

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 »»»)

369. The Anime Graduation Paper and Me Part 1

So for a year+ now I’ve mentioned here or there that I will be writing a graduation paper of sorts on the subject of anime. I’ve known that I had to prepare and perfect said paper for a while now… and I didn’t start it until two nights ago. Luckily it’s on anime, because it wasn’t too horribly boring.

For those in the know, I’m talking about my Extended Essay for the IB program. If I dont do well on the essay -and I’m already planning on tanking one IB test: Spanish-, then I’m not getting the damn diploma and I’ve wasted all this damn time for absolutely nothing. But now I’ve learned the truth. Already seeing four of my friends get into well known schools in the area who are not going for this stupid IB diploma, I’ve realized that being full IB and doing this essay will mean jack anyways as I’ll get the advance diploma by default anyways.

So in short, what I’m about to present to you is essentially a draft. It does not contain all my passion and heart that I have for anime, so it is not one of my greatest pieces. It’s not due until Febuary, so if you’d like to give me some more ideas to make it… say… 500+ words longer, by all means, please do. Hell, you can even write some for me if you wish. I will break it into n number parts as it’s around 3000 words. First up, the intro.

365. Nodame Cantabile Live Episode 11 (Finale) – Baby Please. Dont Leave Me!

And so ends one of my favorite doramas of all time. If only I was in Japan, it’d be the best Christmas present of all time. But alas, it was a good… New Years present?

I’m having a hard time writing this final post because I just dont want it to end. I mean, really, what else can I say besides “It was so amazingly orgasmic, I could fap to this episode?” That should pretty much sum it all up. I really dont think that the anime can be the same high level of quality -this is just too good-, but I will at least be able to get myself some Nodame/Chiaki action until… SEASON 2?! HMMM?

… okay, this is just hopeful wishing. There has been no word of a Nodame Cantabile II… yet? Maybe, just maybe, since the manga has not ended, it will pull a NANA 2 and give us a sequel. There SHOULD still be stuff to work with. As long as they dont change the cast… I should stop. I’m drooling now. (Read More »»»)

35476076. Code Geass- So THIS Is What Everyone’s Talkin About

Okay, so I’m just a bit late on posting about it. Just a bit. But hey, with the news of it’s licensing, what better time, right? Happy New Year.
So what can I say. I’m hooked. It’s not shoujo, there are no cherry blossom scenes, there is no Hagu… but I couldn’t stop proceeding to the next episode without much restraint. The only reason I didn’t watch all 11 *subbed* episodes in one sitting was because I wanted to leave myself something for the other days and partially because of my tetris wifi addiction.

I have the three episode test to thank because I was not blown away by episode 1. With the sight of war, I was prepared for major boredom. Lelouch wasn’t anything special, he’s just one of those genius kids that’ll probably get into mischief. As a whole, it sorta reminded me of S-Cry-ed, of all things… at least, the setting did. But with the question of my taste in anime, but more specifically, my “[online] manliness”, I plunged on and was quite surprised.

366. New Years Isn’t For Another Two Months

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.
