A look back at 2018’s anime; How many did you watch?

January 23, 2019

Now, even though I haven’t posted much… in the last… however many years(2 and a halfish), I’ve still very much been keeping up with the anime airing each season each year. Probably because of that I’ve not written anything. But I’d like to try and change that. Juggling work, what I watch, play and sometimes read is always difficult though. BUT!!! Let’s give it a whirl!

I’ll confess that my taste in anime can sometimes be questionable. But I feel you need some trash in your life to balance out the Oscar/award-worthy titles. That said, I don’t stoop as low as “In Another World with my Smartphone” and “The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar”… but I do enjoy more than the odd isekai, which my best boy has pretty much tapped out on as he feels the market is oversaturated and they all have dumb titles. Which is probably true for about half of anime these days anyway.

Otacool 3 – Workspaces

May 2, 2010

Its that time of year folks! Time to get your camera’s charged and at the ready! For submissions for Otacool 3 are open 🙂 This Otacool is all about workspaces :), be they at work or at home, but more often than not, its gonna be where your computer is situated XD, unless you’re Chun… where ‘workspace’ entails so much more than just a computer :3 Go here to see what I mean if you don’t already know 😀

Before a slight rearrangement.

My entry for Otacool 3 has been posted up to Figure.fm. Might change some of the pictures… might not… will see… fading light is such a bitch sometimes XD But its there. Only posted a few pics here, not final ones either, the proper ones are on Figure.fm.

Can ya guess what I was watching/had on TV while taking these pics? XD

On a side note, some awesome news regarding Danny Choo!! His TV show is definitely going ahead and we’ve got new details about it :DD For fullsome details, do visit this page 😀

Otaku? (+ some not-so-random bishies)

February 24, 2010

You don't get it right? Thats cos only hardcore, obsessive fans would. Don't argue with me on that. (This is one of the many epic designs from Detour Design on Cafepress, click to go there.)

Now, I thought ‘otaku’ was just a word for someone who is obsessed with something, yes it’s more commonly connected to anime/manga etc, but thats not the proper-proper use, is it? In Japanese its a word for someone with an obsession for a certain area(there are other meanings I’m aware of too, its also a suffix like -san/-dono/-chan etc which I wasn’t as aware of lol), but some still want to use it just for anime/manga/eroge obsessions. After becoming a fan of anime/manga when I was 13(I think…) I wasn’t really aware of the use of otaku at all, why would I be? I live in a country that once wrote off most Japanese cartoons as pornographic thanks to Urotsukidoji lol. That was then though, this is now. Much more accepting of it… I think lol.
I’ve always been… easy to get obsessed with something, when I was ickle, it was Dalmatians, thanks to 101 Dalmatians. Favourite Disney movie of all time, and will remain that way, for mostly sentimental reasons I think lol. But that lasted with me, and still is with me now really, until I was 9 or so, when Pokemon arrived, and Pokemon is still with me now lol, can’t wait for Soul Silver to come out!! Am soooo tempted to import… even though there’s only a couple of weeks in between US & UK releases… still seems unfair that we have to wait…

When I moved into my first year university accomodation, it looked like this;

Boring, plain... a clean slate you might say.

Now, this is only my uni room, which I’m never going back to, ask I’m moving into new accomodation next year, living with my friends, hopefully for the next 2 years.

My actual room, at home, is smaller, more compact, but cosier. Need new, less flowery curtains though. Something pink maybe. Or Space Invaders!! They had em aswell… in the Next catalogue when I got the duvet set lol.

Now I’m home I at least have a comfier chair, and its a wheely chair! My favourite kind of chair! You can see my To Heart 2 cosplay top, minus the bow, hanging on my wardrobe(this kind is called a Tallboy for some reason, don’t ask me why lol.

Weird lighting... horrible energy saving bulb in my room, so dull and yellowy...

The shelves brimming with manga, I have more in the barn.. it sucks I have such a small room... too much stuff lol.

What you can’t see behind me is another set of shelves. Filled with TY beanies, books, DS games and comics. And a few dolls on the top lol. I own far too much stuff.

Other stuff you can’t see is my corner of David. Theres also a door of David now too, but the corner of David Tennant is far more impressive lol.

And yes, this is my 300th post. Not making a big deal of this one lol.

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu ep 5 – “If you look at me like that…” Moetaku Update

August 7, 2008

Just letting ya’ll who haven’t noticed yet that Moetaku have just added the Haruka’s Secret ep 5 Status page!! Means the RAW has been released, which is of no use to me… don’t speak Japanese yet unfortunately… The 5th episode will introduce this girl;

Since this girl appears in the title its fairly safe to assume she’ll become a main character. And hopefully an Akiba-Kei friend for Haruka!!!
