Uguu Re-read! The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya (Light Novel)

Dan­ger draws near com­bat wait­ress Miku­ru! We’re onto the sec­ond Suzu­miya Haruhi nov­el now in my series of light nov­el posts, and I’m still dying to get through all of the adapt­ed stuff so I can talk about mate­r­i­al that has yet to become an ani­me and will prob­a­bly nev­er become an ani­me (;_;). The […]

Uguu Re-read! The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (Light Novel)

I have no inter­ests in ordi­nary humans. If you guys have been fol­low­ing this blog since my ear­ly high school days (back when I had a sense of humor. 2006? 2007? Man, I don’t even know how long I’ve been around in the ani­me blo­gos­phere any­more), you may know that not only am I the […]

Kyoukai no Kanata — Final Impressions

Win­ter Break is over, my next col­lege quar­ter has start­ed, and of course I’ve also fin­ished watch­ing Kyoukai no Kana­ta pri­or to that. I must say that the con­clu­sion of Kyoukai no Kana­ta pret­ty much sealed my opin­ion of the series — that is to say, it has­n’t changed quite much. This post isn’t going […]

Have a Happy New Years!

よいお年をお迎えください! Hope you guys are hav­ing a Hap­py New Years. Lack of time has kept me from post­ing a “12 Days of Ani­me” count­down like I did last year, but I’m still up to share some of my ani­me-relat­ed high­lights of 2013 all in one post.

Fanime 2013 Cosplays

One of the things I love about ani­me con­ven­tions (or any con­ven­tion for that mat­ter) are the inva­sion of cos­play­ers. It was awe­some see­ing Down­town San Jose being infest­ed and tak­en over by cos­play­ers and my fel­low geeks and weebs. Peo­ple might have been pissed by the traf­fic we caused and the end­less lines we […]

12 Days of Japanese Propaganda, Day 5: Right Stuf is AWESOME!

Being a starv­ing col­lege stu­dent and an impul­sive buy­er of ani­me-relat­ed stuff is not a good com­bi­na­tion of qual­i­ties to have. Boys and girls, take it from a vic­tim, save your mon­ey for school, food, and maybe a nice car. You’ll prob­a­bly get through your life smoother than me. On the fifth day of Christ­mas, […]

12 Days of Chinese Cartoons, Day 3: Convention Time!

You know that feel­ing when your best friend is at a fam­i­ly bar­beque while you’re at home writ­ing posts about ani­me and singing sil­ly Christ­mas car­ols? You don’t? Er, yeah, I don’t either! 😛 On the third day of Christ­mas, my true love gave to me…

12 Days of Anime, Day 2: The Addiction of Haruhi Suzumiya

Image Cred­it: Yana­gi Yuu from Pix­iv Yes­ter­day, I talked about how hap­py and excit­ed I was about the Rurouni Ken­shin revival that has been going on this year, and dis­cussed how god­ly my hype is for the live-action movie. But let me just clar­i­fy, I’m not only going to talk about notable shows/characters this year […]

The funny thing about Kyoto Animation

Image Cred­it: koba from Pix­iv I real­ize that I may be beat­ing a dead horse, but I’m still (after all of these years) baf­fled at KyoAni’s busi­ness prac­tices. They’re just so bizarre and sim­ply do not match what your typ­i­cal busi­­ness-mind­ed per­son would think of when you say “mak­ing a prof­it from pop­u­lar­i­ty.” This is […]
