The X’s and O’s: Even Kyo-Ani is human.

chigaimasu-48.jpgSo.. Long time no hear from me. Hey, I’m a growing college boy with a lot of work, class and lab related, on his hands. I had a post in the works to sum up how I thought about the big scary “R” word (recession), but Bernanke dropped the rate three-quarters, so it appears crisis averted for now.

Anyway, to the topic. I think everyone who wanted to has probably seen Clannad 16 by now, and if not, well, then you can stop reading here, but I’m not spoiling much, if at all, so you might be ok.

I liked the basketball part of the episode. Sure it didn’t really provide much in terms of actual story development, but it was fun and a pretty good change of pace to come out of the Kotomi arc. Watching Kyou make it rain 3-pointers and Tomoya manage the game was pretty sweet. And the game winner.. my goodness. The contact, the miracle heave from his back before he hits the ground, the kiss off the backboard, that “shooter’s bounce” off the front of the rim, and the swish as time expired… classic. You can’t find stuff like that in real life.

Because we can! – Blog Updates

whitehatazn-48.jpgSo today I decided to spruce up the place. I got really sick of the original banner so I decided to put up a new one. This time with our unofficial mascot, Kotomi-chan. At the same time, I decided to change the theme to match the banner which messed up all of the blog’s images because of the smaller fixed-width (stupid free themes). After purging all of the site’s images and re-uploading all of them, I’m actually happy with all the mindless work. The blog seems at least a bit cleaner and better themed. Yay making the most while being cheap.

I plan to add a few more things to this site soon. This blog seems to be coming together finally. So far my biggest issue is trying to get bro off his lazy college student butt and getting him out of his anime posting slump since the Pachelbel rant. So far the advice from Impz’s helpful collaborative blogging post isn’t helping as much because… BRO IS SUCH A COLLEGE BUM!

Oh, by the way… Thanks. To have gotten to this line means that you like us sooooo much that you were willing to spend two minutes of your time to read by far one of the most useless posts on an anime blog… or you were really really bored. I’m hoping for the first. Thanks anyway. Peace out…
