P.S. Taro Aso is a cool motherfucker here.

Next stop, China, ROFL. I can’t wait till they get to the Hitler arc.

Yabuki-sensei returns with Mayoi Neko Overrun!

Mayoi Neko Overrun!

Fuck yeah, I missed this shit. Yabuki-sensei is truly the master of Fanservice-moments, even if he can’t tell a proper love story for shits and giggles.

There’s even a To-LOVE-ru cameo too!

Mayoi Neko Overrun!

Tokyotosho is back up!

BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT EVER.

Man, checking Tokyotosho is so integral to my online experience that it was hard for me for the past week to adapt to the fact it’s down. Well, it’s basically (one of) my homepage(s) and it was sad seeing the Tachikoma every time I loaded my browser.

Here’s to hoping TokyoTosho will stay up and coals to be delivered to a certain place.

Umineko anime ends

Hurr… that wasn’t too bad for a final episode, discounting the stupid CG DRAGON Kinzo turned in to. They pretty much captured most of the important points of the Tea Party, including the small bombs (LOL). Obviously though, they failed to capture the epicness of the Red and Blue word spamming properly. I mean, Beato barely fought back and just pretty much wanted to let him kill her from the start! Also, they totally forgot about the fourth game. Like, LOL WUT?

As for Ange’s death… could’ve pull that off better. I am a bit sad they didn’t put in the burger joke at the Ura Tea Party lol.

Overall, I’d say Umineko anime was pretty much another adaptation failure, but at least it got more people interested in the series! I can bravely say I am one of them.

Ahhh, I can’t wait for Episode V!

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu ~Purezza~ finally ends

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu

I can’t believe I finished watching this. “Noto-sama no tame ni!!!” I guess?

Seriously, this sequel was pretty much crap in execution, story, character development and, sometimes, even fanservice. They pretty much ignored the whole basic concept of the series and turned in to another cliché-filled rom-com rehash. I mean, for god’s sake, they just pretty much affirmed the status quo of Yuuto and Haruka’s relationship throughout the show. And all their intimate scenes are just painful to watch too.

Don’t even get me started on the side characters, which just felt they were thrown in to make up the numbers. Shiina, for one, should be pretty much cognizant of Yuuto x Haruka the most, but she still thinks she’s got a chance. Of course, Yuuto and Haruka themselves NEVER admit they’re an item, expecting everyone to pretty much know it just by looking at them, which just actually makes me feel sad for Shiina. Too bad girl, “next week” is never gonna come! (watch the final episode)

Well not all of them were bad. Himemiya Milan at least came out looking pretty damn good when she flat-out told Yuuto at her concert to buck the hell up and admit his feelings for Haruka before she gets enraptured by the entertainment industry. But needless to say, trying to emulate WHITE ALBUM is never a good thing in the first place.

Liked: No
Rewatch: Hell no.
3rd Season?: For the love of god, NO MORE.
