Trigger discipline
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  On topic of trigger discipline, this was at Cinderella Girls today: Tsk, tsk. Steven also explains why he didn’t actually watch Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka thus: “Cute girls doing cute things” isn’t a genre I really get into. Strawberry Marshmallow and Yuru Yuri kind of overdosed...

Weaboo Adventures in American iTunes
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Something prompted me to search at iTunes by entering Japanese keywords, such as “アイドル”, and guess what? They have a few J titles leaking over. So far I grabbed a talking clock “MoeJiFukuZ”, terrible quasi-VN “Kuudere Kanojo”, and Kanon for iPad, which comes...

SAO vs Log Horizon
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  At a meeting of my fabulous anime club, I had a chance to watch SAO and Log Horizon back to back, and frankly Log Hor wins hands down. SAO has better production values, it looks like an anime asking for HD experience. But its characters are not anyone I would like to care about. It’s odd Kirito...

DiGiKerot on Streaming Catalog
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Beta-Waffle: Animax pretty much work on the opposite business model to Crunchyroll, in so much as new episodes of “simulcast” shows are available for around two weeks to everyone, and what the subscribing user is paying for access to is catalogue content. I do have to give them props for at least...

Gundam Build Fighters ends
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  GBF is one of those anime that wear their soul on their slieve. Its robust, open, fun nature makes it a great entertainment for the weary. Remember how the “chemo for pseudo-intelligenzia shows”? That wasn’t one, but this sure is. It certainly is not without its flaws. The premise...

Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Andy sent a comment: Honestly, the real problem for me is that they never really built the world they were busy trying to conquer. Warring prefectures? Governor of Tokyo has legions of minions borrowed from Jin-Roh? Is it Udo that put the Udo in Udogawa? Who the heck knows. It’s not like the formula...

iM@S Cinderella Girls anime announced
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Remember the “preview of nothing”? It was actually a preview of new anime series, as revealed today. Which means Rin and Anya are in. When I came back from putting 6 hours on Hobbs and checked how my pokegirl cards are doing, and the announcement came up, I reacted with a disbelief. But...

Nova on Zvezda
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  To be entirely honest, I felt somewhat unfulfilled by Zvezda‘s ending. The finale seemed fake and empty, but if someone else challenged my impression, I would not be able to back it up (except perhaps that the creators betrayed the build-up for the main duo). Nova, however, pulls no punches in...

Zvezda ends
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  The ending would be very confusing if I were still trying to figure out what the heck was even happeing, but fortunately I gave up. Unfortunately though, this leaves me with little material for reflection. So things happened there was some fighting and conquesting but nobody [of consequence] died while...

  Or maybe more like this: (Actually I haven’t even completed reading, the post is far too long to finish it at work.) UPDATE: For lights, I did have a KB on me because ultimately I don’t have enough UOs. While I stayed away from it on day one, I noticed there were a ton of people using it anyway,...

Is this the best season or the worst?
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Brickmuppet prompted me to consider the score and remarkably this season is one of the busiest at Ani-nouto in years. After the Nanoha disaster, we would typically follow 1 (one) simulcast or fansub, and dillute it with a batch, possibly adding a rewatch. Not so in 2014 Winter. When the season opened,...

Kotoura-san begins
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  The most interesting feature of the way Kotoura-san begins is how compressed the intro is, in a sense that a fairly rich pre-history of the setup is unrolled in 2 episodes. It reminded me much about KimiNozo very much, where all the coma was over in the same space, and the remainding 23 or so were...

Otou-san on the design of iM@S TV
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  The editorial at A&V felt a little cold and its approach algebraic, but it was not counterfactual, as far as attempts to focus on the trees of a forest go. The reason the anime focuses on Miki, Chihaya, and Haruka is that they are designated leader of each “color”: Miki is yellow or...

  It was worth watching because of this: They employed actual Asami “Mingosu” Imai for the cameo. BTW, I think I am starting to figure out where the nickname comes from. Her possibly self-assigned blog handle is “Asamingo”, which I suspect being related to Flamingo (my friend...

Chuunibyou REN begins
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Being no stranger to starting from 2nd season, I looked into the Chuunibyou pera pera REN. There was a number of misconceptions thrown about it, such as the arrival of another girl being the catalist for the season (SPOILER: not so). The main hook really is the management of an insane girlfriend,...
