Do people seriously grow more idiotic by the day?

Seems to me that’s our sad reality.

I think I hurt somebody’s feelings. So long, I guess, and thanks for all the fish~!

Unfortunately for them, I’m the careful, paranoid type that keeps or gets records of everything when the charges are bullshit.

So apparently because I can do your work BETTER than you yourselves do (especially since you don’t do it AT ALL), you’re warning me?

Smooth, Aeria. Real smooth. =p

EDIT: Funny how mere minutes after this link starts to spread itself around by word of mouth, Aeria’s entire site goes kablooey. Probably a coincidence, but still fucking hilarious. XD

So I finished watching Infinite Stratos a few days ago…

And if you want to watch this thing, the best advice I can ever give you is this:

Stay away from it if you’re looking for plot.

Seriously.

The fanservice is good, the humor is good, the harem comedy is good, the girls are hilarious (especially snobbish Cecilia, violently sweet Houki and deliciously charming Charlotte), and the male lead is a fucking idiot. There’s nice action here and there, and given the direction of the original light novels, the series was left on what could be a potential cliffhanger open for a second season. But as for plot? None here, no sir.

Only watch this if you want some light-hearted action, comedy and fanservice. Stay the hell away from it otherwise.

Kawakami Tomoko, Requiescat In Pace.

Today marks a very sad day for the anime industry.
 
 
 
Kawakami Tomoko, a very versatile and prolific voice actress, has passed away after battling for a long time against ovarian cancer.

This death is especially sad to me because she voiced one of my favorite characters in fiction ever, the always awesome Ryougi Shiki from the Type-Moon franchise Kara no Kyoukai, The Garden of Sinners.

I feel very sad for her passing, because at 40 years old, this comes as a highly untimely death. Her talent will be missed by all her fans of all her roles, and her presence will be missed by those who loved and appreciated her in person.
 
 
 
 

お疲れ様でした、川上さん。お休みなさい。

Feedback concerning the new SMT Imagine GS applicants.

So Aeria recently reopened applications for their fancy Game Sage position for Imagine, and because I was a little too lazy, NAme got ahead of me and made a post on his blog for REAL feedback, not the filtered, censored shit you can only do at their forums.

I already posted a reply to it with my sincere, concise and brutally honest opinion about all the applicants. You’ll notice that among the people I point out as good choices, while there are some close friends of mine like Kain and Mem, there’s also people I barely know, but have witnessed their knowledge, helpfulness, honesty and desire to help, like Alister, Ziggy and Viraxe.

…Now I’m tempted to make an application for myself to troll Aeria with. :V

I don’t exactly like showing, of all things, GIFs to people.

But this one is WAY too fucking hilarious.

So I just watched Kowarekake no Orgel today…

And there just aren’t enough words to describe the emotional upheaval those mere 30 minutes of animation and well-told story gave me.

An incredibly sad story about a young man who loses his family and his dreams, and a little robotic girl (a helper android called “Parent” in-universe) who’s lost her “memory” and just wants to see her new owner/older-brother-figure smile by making him listen to her singing. For such a short animation, the story spans several months, and yet it doesn’t feel overly fast-paced; the direction and voice acting were superb, and the overall production was extremely touching.

Romance doesn’t have to mean love between strangers; romance and love can also bloom within family bonds. If you like romance at all, or a good dramatic telling of the love of a family, look no further. This is officially my new favorite short OVA ever.

Because you know you can’t live without me and my awesome cussing and whistleblowing skills.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Fuck yeah.

If you find anything wrong with the blog be sure to post a comment here or drop me a line, and I’ll look into it ASAP.)
