Watashi ga Motenai no wa dou Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui! 09

Your friend’s job. Your job. I still find it high­ly remark­able just how much your aver­age Joe can relate to this series. It does a fan­tas­tic job of being dip­ping in and out of black com­e­dy, to being a rather grip­ping por­tray­al of the real­i­ty that more than a few unfor­tu­nate peo­ple have. I know […]

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 […]

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 […]

I will become a Megane soon enough

I just went to get my eyes exam­ined. Turns out my vision is so shit­ty I’ll have to wear glass­es every­day. If only ani­me tropes applied to real life; that being the case, I would either choose to be the Spec­ta­cled Sadist or Sto­ic Spec­ta­cles with­in my group of friends (or even bet­ter, with­in the […]

K‑ON!! 18

The major­i­ty vote for Mio as Romeo is just ask­ing for some dis­turb­ing spec­u­la­tions about the fan­tasies of Mio’s fans. It’s cool that they can see the rather obvi­ous Slap Slap Kiss rela­tion­ship friend­ship between Mio and Rit­su, though. Even if I always thought Rit­su would be the man of the house.

K‑ON!! 16

やっぱり!! Azun­yan makes a come­back. I got my wish! Like episode five and episode thir­teen, this episode ter­ri­bly kind­ly ser­viced me. (EDIT: Edit­ing the url for this post caused me to make a triple post on the Anten­na. Many apolo­gies. T_T)
