Christmas haul
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  It is the season of giving and receiving! Obviously, Merry Christmas, everyone, but focusing on the matters of animeblogging importance, here’s what we get in 2014: AKB48 hits from 2006, AKB48 Heart Ereki, Angela’s first CD, and Gurren-Lagann, The Movie (American version). The 3DPD bent...

Bloggers on Shirobako
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Ani-nouto was remiss in its core mission recently: observing what everyone else is blogging, especially about the anime Author himself is not watching. Perhaps we’re burning out. Still, it’s hard not to notice that Shirobako is gunning for the anime of the season, if critical acclaim is...

Denki-Gai, a visual retrospective
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Let’s just put it out of the way by stating that indeed, when the creators tried to ramp up the perversion factor, the anime got awful. There’s nothing wrong with poking fun at society’s rigid mores, but you cannot be clumsy and crude doing it if you want a good result. Here’s...

Not a podcast again
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  I find a mildly intriguing podcast once in a while, and I wonder: how do people find time to listen to them? Must be commuting. Unfortunately, I work from my bedroom! And in this particular case, I know everything I need to know about that movie from the manga, so nope.

M. LaMoe on the death of literature
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  According to post at Anime Diet, “light novels are the culprit that killed the Japanese traditional literature or “pure literature” as they call it” (he agrees with the statements of Owlguildy to that effect). Personally, I think Murakami killed literature better, but sure. At least...

iM@S CG, GBF TRY, K-ON
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  As a part of pre-broadcast hype, a new PV came out, and a massive interview (translated in thesii). They cause some concern: the new anime is no different from the old one. Something like that happened before: I dropped GBF TRY after 3 episodes. As much as I loved the original, what is the point? Re-heated...

Idolmaster Cinderella Girls 3rd Anniversary Extravaganza
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  It was 3 years already? Time sure flies. There’s a lot going on in the meatspace on the occasion, but one thing that I felt the most was that Mobage permitted unverifieds to claim bonuses. Suddenly I have an overflow of idols and had to take unprecendented steps, like sell 20 Rares for Rare Medals...

Denki-Gai 07-09
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  As I feared, Denki-Gai no Honya-san slipped off the heights of ep.6. The tender moment of 09 is supposed to be when Kantoku threatened to rape unconscious Hio-tan. Still, it’s quite noticeable that the series works best when it turns away from the workplace comedy toward romantic comedy. And gosh,...

Haibane Renmei at YouTube
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  FUNi posted Haibane Renmei to YouTube, and I am enjoying a rewatch. Every time it happens, I worry that it turns out to be an obsolete anime that only became popular by accident, but no. It is still great. The animation is quite dated, of course, and it was a low-budget production to begin with. There’s...

ZakuAbumi on animebloggers
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  The first question that comes to mind: where did you learn to blog, son? So many quotes and not one is linked. FAIL. Also, the link above will be 0.001 BTC, thanks. UPDATE: Another odd habit that Zaku demonstrates is adding updates with a self-comment. That one is not, strictly speaking, a blogging...

Inou Battle begins
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  The Inou Battle is yet another turn in the 1 Boy N Girls Club arena. Initial signs aren’t good. It’s a harem, of course. With a loli. The style of humour is similar to Rokujouma with a dash of Chuuni REN. One (practically) former blogger suggested that something bad is going to land in 04....

GYO
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  At a meeting of my fabulous anime club today, I had to watch GYO, or, truth to be told, had to make every effort not to watch it. The anime is basically a disaster porn. People losing human nature and such, the usual. Completely not up my alley, and also comletely routine. Even had a stock mad scientist...

Evirus on Shirobako
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Karmaburn: Through five episodes, I can’t quite dispassionately decide if the show itself is simply good, or if I’m biased toward viewing it in a more favorable light because I personally find fascinating the subject matter and behind-the-scenes details revealed by the show.

Urobutcher gone missing from Gargantia
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  At least that’s the take at Lost in America: As we know [Urobutcher] wrote only the first and last episodes of the series, and to what extent he was involved in what came between I don’t know. But this OVA in particular is completely devoid of anything remotely resembling contemplation...
