The Blogs major Hiatus comes to a close with a long overdue podcast with popular anime blogger Kuroshinko from KansatsauMoonspeak. We get to chat about the anime fandom in the Philipines and also get to chat about our favourite shows from the previous season.
I round up the E3 craze I am in by bringing along a bunch of passionate gamers from around Australia and New Zealand to talk about what we thought about E3. We discuss almost every single game and decide upon what the best games at the show were. Debates are had, threats are made and blood is nearly spilt, this one is not for the weak.
E3 From An Aussie Perspective
(There is some swearing in this one so yeah..Parental Guidance and all that)
I got the chance to see E3 Live again this year, I was way more hyped for it this year than I was last year which is shocking I know. I had one screen for my Twitter stream and one screen streaming the Gametrailers All Access Live stream. Just like last Year Twitter exploded and was a lot of fun and I was a big part of that tweeting over 400 times within 2 days. The WiiU was re revealed and it looked cool but the real highlight of the show was the games and I am going to count down my favourite games showcased at this years E3.
I finally get the chance to talk to another one of my blogging inspirations, 2DT. The famous author of the anime blog 2D Teleidoscope. We get to talk about everything from how he got into anime to what his future plans are. Sit back, relax and get a cup of tea coz this is gonna be a good one.
Straight to video anime or OAV’s were a really big part of the Western Anime fandom in the early 2000′s and some of the mid 90′s. However, in recent years we have seen less and less of them released and localised. So how does this new double feature with the highly acclaimed name Dai Sato behind the scripts and studio SUNRISE with the production hold up?
This current anime season is one of the best anime seasons in recent memory. I recall picking 7 shows to watch right off the bat and that’s not even including the ones I thought would be mediocre. Unfortunately, just like every season I can barely manage to keep up with all the shows I want to see and end up pruning the mediocre from the really good ones. Mysterious Girlfriend X was not one of those shows. As a matter of fact I completely disregarded the show based on how weird the premise was and the massive negative backlash it got from some reviewers and fans.
The problem most people had (including myself) with the show was the fetishistic inclusion of saliva. The shows synopsis does not do a decent enough job to tell what the show is really about and the fact that the studio behind it was the infamous HOODS Entertainment, the guys that brought us Seikon no Qwaser, Aki Sora and Manyuu Hikenchou meant there was a strong possibility that the show would highly focus on this fetish and sexualise it to the extreme. Not exactly my cup of tea if you know what I mean.
I eventually caved in and decided to watch it after it was put on the playlist at my local anime club and it literally blew all my negative expectations right out the window, except the drool part I still find that quite disgusting but that’s the point!
12th of May 2011 I decided to try and organise all my thoughts and opinions onto a single site where everyone could see. It would be both convenient for myself and for my friends. Convenient in the sense that I always tend to refer to things I said in the past just so I can say “I told you so” Im often right, 60% of the time atleast.
