A Geek by Any Other Name

Look, Over There! It’s A Giant Bomb!
  A lot of you keep asking me what’s going on with my new project (which is still being worked on in the background, by the way). I can’t give away all my secrets, but you can get a peek at a few of the kinds of things I’m up to by visiting my newly-launched sibling site, Giant Bomb,...

Meet the Ochans
  It’s been a while since anyone updated this page, so I guess it’s my duty to at least show my face my around here a bit more often, eh? Here’s a group family photo we took during the recent Bon Odori.The Ochans! In case you still couldn’t guess, here’s how you can put names...


Ikuto Can't Play Violin
 I'm not a world class violinist or anything, so maybe someone more knowledgeable can help me out here. But umisn't Ikuto holding the bow backwards? Is that like a special technique that I never learned? Also, the way he's holding it, his fingers are touching the horse hair portion, which is a big no...

Get Ready For Anime: The Theme Park
  That’s the word from the People’s Daily Online (found via 2nn), who report that in Guiyang, China (the capital of the Guizhou provicence), there are plans to build an anime and manga theme park. There really isn’t a lot to say on this, since we have no dates mentioned, no series that’ll...


Funimation license Baccano!
 Funimation continue to be pretty much the entirety of the R1 anime industry today with the announcement of them having licensed Baccano!, a show which I personally think it rather fantastic (and own the R2’s of already, so I’ll probably end up skipping the R1 release of).You can actually...

A Wii Nodame Cantabile Dream Orchestra Dream Come True
  Finally got to play this game with friends with an orchestra! I am back from my trip, and it’s been no less than fun fun fun I had such a great time staying at the hamster’s den, not simply because she and her entire family were such kind hosts (smothered us–me and my officemate/...

Japan’s brown haired plague
  When you think of Japanese hair color, I’m sure that black is the first color that comes to mind. Sure, most people in Japan have black hair unless they dye it. However, there are those with natural colors other than black. The Japan Times has exposed a growing form of discrimination in Japan...

‘Cafe Kichijoji De’ Gets Drama-fied
  Like Antique Bakery? Good! Because Yuki Miyamoto’s manga Cafe Kichijoji De– which, like AB, is about a group of attractive men running a cafe –is being developed into a live-action dramacoincidentally, just after an anime adaptation of Fumi Yoshinaga’s Antique Bakery started....


Stray Little Devil Manga, Volume 2 (English)
 More amusing examples of "not only can't you please everybody all of the time, sometimes you can't even please some people some of the time." LOLWhen I openly admitted that I have completely made up the Akira x Alicia couple from Aria in my head, I was accused of being a moron. (My ongoing discussions...



Calamitous Intent

Natsume Yuujinchou episodes 1 and 2
  I thought that this would be one of the better shows in this season that’s, well, lacking in shows that I’m interested in. A book with powers? Demons? A main character that, from the promotional images, looks really good? Great! Then I saw the first 2 episodesand realized that this is a...

Ah! My Figures: Oh God Itoshiki-Sensei Is Hot
  If this isn’t the Nendoroid to end all Nendoroids, I dunno what would be: over at TomoPop, Brad reports on a Nendoroid based on Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei’s titular Itoshiki-sensei. They aren’t talking about what kind of option parts there’ll be, but there better be a noose....

Blood Alone - Living with a Vampiress, How Difficult Can it Get?
 I was deceived by the picture on the cover page and thought that Blood Alone might be one of those boring manga with a Victorian setting and plot. I read chapter 1, felt that it was rather classy (but I continue reading nonetheless) and by the time I got to the end of chapter 3,

Newsflash: Japanese People Think Westerners Are Pretty
  Well, some of them, anyway. CNN reports on a butler cafe that caters to women with yet another specific niche. Rather than the butlers being Japanese men (or Japanese women dressed as men), the men of the Butlers Cafe are all westerners. The owner of the cafe suggests that Japanese men are too embarassed...

Tagtype makes Kanji input easy
  Writing Kanji is probaly the toughest thing about the Japanese language. While it’s possible to input Kanji via the Japanese IME on a computer, doing so on other electronic equipment still can present a challenge. Thankfully, there is a new device called the Tagtype that tackles the problem a...
