Who actually buys anime DVD’s?

Ahhh Nagi, Kannagi is one of the series I most want on DVD, but it has yet to be released.

Ahhh Nagi, Kannagi is one of the series I most want on DVD, but it has yet to be released.

I read Neo’s big fansub article in the new issue, 61, and felt compelled to write something, cos I do download fansubs, yes its illegal, but I, unlike alot of people, buy the series when they’re out. And I only watch anime I know I like, I don’t go downloading everything under the sun, that would be a complete waste of time.

In the past year, less actually, I’ve bought more anime than I ever have before. Online, at conventions, in stores. I like to think I do my part for the anime market. And this is mainly thanks to being able to watch and test out anime using fansubs. Anime like Clannad, Ouran High Host Club, Onegai Twins, Kanon, all anime I bought because of the fansubs I watched. Some series I buy just cos I know I’ll like them, To Heart, Midori Days, I hadn’t seen them before, maybe one episode of Midori Days on a anime preview disc from Newtype or something. Other stuff I bought when I saw it cheap, like Bleach, and, god forbid Naruto…(just tried the first part of the first season, didn’t get through the first disc… Bleach was better, have the first season of that. There are also occasions when I rented anime from the library. Did that with Elfin Lied and few others. Tsukihime I got because I had the first volume in a big-multipack of anime and loved it, mostly volume 1’s in the set.

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu ep 8 – “…Onii~san☆” Review

August 30, 2008

Watched the prerelease of Haruka’s Secret episode 8 when I got home from work and found it on Moetaku. Was uber-happy to see the new episode. I was a little wary at first, because of the Mika-heavy content. But I was pleasantly suprised in the end. Twas all very cliche and not unfamiliar territory, but it was done well and very enjoyabled. Haruka fans will not be displeased with this episode, even though there is a distinct lack of Haruka, it was still good.

The episode begins with Mika having a refined tea party with some of her school chums. Who all comment on how ‘experienced’ she is. lol. Mika…worldly…lol

Mika takin' charge of a gaggle of girls.

Mika making the poor innocent girl's minds reel.

This was a funny introduction, I loved the girls reactions. And Mika’s labcoat, lol.

Plotting on the way home....

More plotting and moe from Mika. She wants to teach Yuuto how to please women, Haruka in particular.

Those eyes.... she does look quite freaky....

I just love the range of evil expressions Mika-chan has.

As the episode progresses, Mika takes Yuuto (that seems more correct) on a date. And funny things happen. And the Mika-Brand-Moe.

Moe.......

Moe.......

Hawt!!!

Hawt!!!

MOE! MOE, MOE, MOE, MOE!!!

MOE! MOE, MOE, MOE, MOE!!!

Dontcha just love how the hair flutters even though they’re inside where theres no wind? lol. Oh! Whats this next?? Filth!! Thats riiiiight!!!

I LOL'd at that. And yes, I have a terminally filthy mind... you all were thinking it too....Don't lie.

Most of these screenshots are just shots of Mika-Brand-Moe. I’m sorry if you don’t like Mika. But I bet the majority of Haruka fans do lol.

As I said, cliche episode, falling into the arms of your friends/sisters potential guy is very well known. And having feelings for him is also very cliche. As is this particualar shot below.

The same pose/angle as Ichigo Momomiya in vol 3 of Tokyo Mew Mew after dancing with Ryou and feeling something she shouldn't.

This is the pose/angle in question. You will agree its much alike. I wonder how many times this pose/angle has been used? In this kind of situation too...

Anyways, they go to the cinema too, and then meet Shiina in the street…. :hissssss:

:hisssssssssssssssssssssssss:

And right after Mika drags Yuuto to a place where they can changed into Yukata’s too. (Anyone know what these are called? Because it looks like they left their clothes their, they arn’t carrying them when they leave….)

Just delivering the goods....

Money shot.... :sigh: Just delivering the goods....

There were pantsu too, but I’m not going to pander to you today lol.

Hawt-Yuuto at the Fireworks festival.

And then Haruka appears!! Stopping Mika from doing something….well…something, you’ll see when you watch! 😀

Kawaii!!! Oh Haruka! We missed you this episode!!

And after this, we go back to school. And guess what?

It's the School Cultural Festival!! Always one of my favourite times of anime series!!

I’m sure alot of us look forward to the Cultural festival episodes of anime, because its usually an excuse to dress up cute girls in maid outfits or other such fetishes.

And Shiina volunteers to be one of the representatives for their class... Grrrrr....

She guilds Yuuto into being the other representative…. I’m sorry if you like Shiina, I just don’t…. I know she’ll back down in the end… but Haruka is just so naive! She probably doesn’t even know what flirting is!!!

She's so cute....and caring and lovely and darling....

She's just so cute...

Anyways, thats really the end of the episode. Shiina is becoming a more prominant threat. Yuuto has to step up and be a man! Take Haruka in his arms and confess!!! :haauuuuu:

Before I leave you, one more shot of Mika-Brand-Moe!!

Strike Witches ep 7 – Nice ‘n Breezy – Pure Pantsu

August 16, 2008

The latest episode was just pure fanservice. There was no other reason to have numerous girls wandering round with either no pantsu, or not their own pantsu. Personally I find the idea of wearing someone elses pantsu(that arn’t washed priorly)pretty gross, and in the episode they switch pantsu without washing them…so….well….. Oh I don’t know! It wasn’t meant for me…. I’m sure you all enjoyed it though lol.

From the moment I saw this shot, the very first shot of the episode, I knew I wasn’t in for the most wholesome of episodes…

The titles roll, then we get, shots of sleeping girls, some of whom are wearing very little, if not any night wear. I ask you, do you wear this little in bed? You may well do, but considering that they are in Britain! We are the not warmest country in the world, and they are set up in a castle!! There is no way the central heating would be that great lol.
