Umineko no Naku Koro ni = Mafia?

Friday, July 10, 2009

To me, it’s a party game, but in anime form.

After I finished watching episode 2 of Umineko no Naku Koro ni, the first thing that popped in my head was the party game Mafia. I’m not going to bother explaining the episode since there are so many blogs that summarize different types of anime so I’ll just go straight to my comparison.

A short but fun day – My Saturday at Zenkaikon

Sunday, October 19, 2008

Zetsubou-shita! Itoshiki-sensei hung himself again. Though, he seemed happy that I wanted his picture.

At first, Nii-chan and I weren’t planning on going to Zenkaikon because I was having my Homecoming that night. We finally decided to go because we wanted to see how Zenkaikon changed from last year. We were quite amazed when we walked through the door. Read the rest of this entry »

Cosplayers, cosplayers, and more cosplayers – My Saturday at NYAF

Sunday, September 28, 2008

Yay for people paid to dress up. These Bandai Entertainment cosplayers gave out items while posing for pictures every minute!

tsukagi-48.jpg-chan already posted what his view of Saturday was so I don’t need to say much. We got on the ferry, walked to the Jacob Javits Center, received our badges and went in. The first thing you see in the dealer’s room is the Bandai Entertainment booth. There were quite a lot of people crowded there so we decided to pass it and walk around. Our first panel was the Anime Bloggers panel. I was so pumped because I was able to see Hinano! Read the rest of this entry »

An Anime Bloggers’ Who’s Who and Other Things – My Saturday at NYAF

Saturday, September 27, 2008

It was surprising to see how big the Bandai Ent. booth was this year compared to last year. I guess you can spend it up when Funimation and Media Blasters are the only remaining competition. Ah yes… the nuances of free-market capitalism…

whitehatazn-48.jpgIt has been normal procedure for the past few years to attend as many anime cons in the NJ area. Today, both sis and I were at NYAF for essentially our home con (since AnimeNext has really sucked it up in Secaucus). Once again we try our best to make the Saturday at least since going the entire weekend (and crossing the Hudson that many times) takes alot of energy for this 40hr-work-week anime fan. Here’s my report on NYAF 2008 Saturday: Read the rest of this entry »

“Manga kids” – They keep covering the shelves

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Well, this is a perfectly empty walkway toward manga books. That does not happen every day.

tsukagi-48.jpgSchool started for me again, Aniki is back in college, and Nii-chan is out at work. I haven’t been checking this blog over the summer due to my birthday. I’m quite amazed that the Kyonko post created by Nii-chan is still the first link set on Google when you ask for Kyonko. Anyway, I’ve explained enough of what’s been going on with this blog. I’ll finally start what I was going to talk about. Read the rest of this entry »

A request from your fellow blogger: Worksafe Anime Wallpaper

Saturday, June 7, 2008

There are a ton of people at work with Aegis-related stuff in their cubicles. They’ll probably think that I’m on crack if I tell them that bubbles and foam can take down the USS Arleigh Burke. The one thing I don’t understand from that Geass episode is why they used so many DDGs in such a tight formation. You’d think Britannia would only need about a few in a loose formation with a backup group (especially since the Britannian DDGs look like USN’s DDG-1000 with the technology). Sigh. I guess the USN > the Britannian Navy when it comes to search and detect ASW technology.

whitehatazn-48.jpgOnce again, my work consumed most of my time these past few weeks as we scramble to get more testing done. And once again, work has taken time away from anime watching (let alone blogging). I’ve been so out of the loop with the spring season set (Geass R2 and Vampire Knight being the only two shows I’m following consistently). I can’t even remember where I left off from some of the older shows I was watching (with my myanimelist being outdated). With the summer season looming around the corner, hopefully I can get back to watching regularly.

Today, instead of the normal anime thesis post (I don’t have any anime technology designs in my head right now), I’m putting a callout for another “What is a good anime wallpaper?” discussion. In this case, I’m asking: “What is a good methodology for an anime wallpaper for your work computer?” I would like to have some anime wallpaper for my work laptop screen which is somewhat reflective of my anime fandom (I run dual screens with the company logo on my monitor screen). I don’t care for any mainstream anime wallpaper (Naruto, Bleach, Deathnote, etc.). I had put up wallpapers of sola and Clannad before. Read the rest of this entry »

Seiyuus – Comparing characters with characters

Friday, May 16, 2008

Rina Satou is a jellyfish? I can’t lose!

tsukagi-48.jpgAs finals and my birthday creeps around the corner, I try to think of something new to post. Everyone has their lovable seiyuus and sometimes watch certain anime because of them. Well, I decided to take some of their characters and compare them with their other characters of this Spring Season. Enough of the introduction! Let’s get this started! Read the rest of this entry »
