SNAFU ends
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  SNAFU stepped up its efforts in the 2nd season. Animation improved significantly. I know someone who’s hot for Iroha, who was introduced very late, in apparent effort to enliven the show. Nonetheless, overall result was unpleasant, because of characters that were stupid, egocentric, inconsiderate,...

Omo on Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  I think the analogy of the rivalry between iM@S and LL as SpaceX versus BO is highly apt. I just wonder, how many anime fans are fans of space enough to feel its power. And another thing: Look at the list of WUG, Aikatsu, etc.. I understand that Locodol had no chance, but K-ON missed it big. They should’ve...

Calaggie on Wakaba Girl
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  “My rate of keeping up with newly-debuted anime series has fallen in the past few years.” Doesn’t it sound familiar? And so: The bulk of my current anime watching involves series with episodes lasting less than 15 minutes. [] Those shorter runtimes mean smaller weekly time commitments...

ETOTAMA
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  ETOTAMA is a quirky and bouncy show that is let down by a very unfortunate ending. Although, on the second thought, perhaps the end was predetermined structurally. Throughout the whole series, the main character (Nya) makes a heavy use of the main character cheat: she cannot lose no matter what’s...

Wakako-zake manga
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  I was puzzled by a scene in Wakako-zake a while back, enough to ask my Japanese coworkers what it could mean. What was different about the stately old gentleman eating yakitori? Fortunately, manga provides answers. Fist, Wakako takes upon the yakitori after excercise and gobbles them. The gentleman...

#animeblogger on Trinity Seven
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  There’s a link to #animeblogger on the sidebar, and it still works, in 2015. Anyhow, although the following was a while back, I wanted to preserve it. hikago why didn’t you tell me about trinity seven it’s the show I’ve enjoyed the most this season cute girls and great MC...

SNAFU begins
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  This is an exchange deal in which Hikago promises to watch Shirobako if I watch Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru, also known is “SNAFU” in English. To be sure, it has an official Japanese shorhand, Oregairu, but things happened. Anyhow, just how terrible is it? Episode 01...

Omo on Yurina Hase nee Yurika Ochiai
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  For those not in the know, the recent passing of Miyu Matsuki prompted a bit of coming out when previously disappeared seyiuu opened up, with Omo summarizing it thus: You can read ANN’s take on it (originals archived by Yaraon), but there’s more to that story than what was translated. For one, Yurishii...

One Punch Man begins
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Since Daisuki is not available in Japan, I had to watch OPM at hotel TV. It was an adventure all in itself: even had to set up an alarm clock. Screencapping was compromised. But regardless, it’s good and I think we can open its run safely. I remember that back in the day, good old Aroduc was...

I’ve got nothing 2
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Anyway, pictures. As it happens, all of them come from series of which I only rewatch a couple of specific episodes. Stellvia 12. Giant robots, school love, and classical education. What more could one want? Directed by Tatsuo Sato, too. AKB0048 17. That man cracks me up every time. Ai yori Aoshi...

Knights of Sidonia begins
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Thanks for effective (if deceptive) advocacy by Mauser, I picked Sidonia no Kishi for a watch on Netflix (dubbed, of course). I have to admit, grudgingly, that it’s not half bad. Grudgingly, because the qustion of Sidonia is the question of 3D: it’s 100% 3D, like the Hollywood flicks. Sadly,...

  I had “大阪万博”, conventionally known as “Osaka World Fair”, for about three years, unread. Then, I picked it up a few days ago, and surprise! I can read it well enough to enjoy it {for the curious, it’s a compendum of tributes by famous manga artists, and they are...

Danna-san wo Nanka Wakaranai
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  As mentioned previously, I Can’t Understand What My Husband Is Saying — on easy streaming at Crunchyroll — ended the only title that we followed in-season, despite the 3-minute format. It was surprisingly gentle despite the otaku humour – a delicate balance that Denki-gai didn’t...

The 2015 Summer’s Invastion of Shorties
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  A cursory look at RandomC season preview (h/t Chizumatic) reveals an unusually great number of short-format series.[1] Seems like the new fad, and I’m not a fan. It’s not like they have to be bad. The PuPiPo was amazing, for example. The TeeKyuu stands alone. AIURA was an animation tour...

Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  UPDATE: More informed people identified this as a case of name collision in the ANN database. The other case I was trying to remember could be the same as well. So, I was perusing seiyuu profiles, when Wait, I’m not Hashi-hime and this is not my schtick. However, someone observed on Twitter that...
