AMinaide!  Hazukashii...

"Minaide! Hazukashii!" means something like "Don't look! It's embarrassing…" Anyway, this is a commentary and news-heavy blog with relatively few episode reviews per season.


Also, this blog isn't the safest site to read at work, especially if I start talking about porn or something.

what i was forced to watch this week #15: jubei-chan
Minaide!  Hazukashii...
  For some reason, I always leave out Akitaro Daichi when I think about anime directors that I like. It’s weird too, since he has a really recognizable style and a pretty high quality level. I liked Kodocha, I liked Fruits Basket way more than someone who is not a 15 year old girl probably should,...

so hopefully this crunchyroll thing will work out
Minaide!  Hazukashii...
  So I’m kind of confused about what to think about this whole Crunchyroll development. At first, I thought “Oh noes! They’re getting venture capital to use on making money off of other people’s work!” Of course, then I realized “Wait, Nico Nico serves ads too.” Then, when Gonzo announced...

  Courtesy of Digg: Kentucky Representative Tim Couch filed a bill this week to make anonymous posting online illegalRepresntative Couch says enforcing this bill if it became law would be a challenge. The article also mentions a $1000 fine for all subsequent posts made after the first. /b/ alone gets...

what i was forced to watch this week #14: king of bandit jing
Minaide!  Hazukashii...
  Originally, I was going to watch Slayers, but that CD was corrupted. Then, I was going to watch DNA2, which I had wanted to read because it had a writeup in BFI Screen Guides: 100 Anime, but we couldn’t find that CD. King of Bandit Jing was on the CD that we thought DNA2 was on, so I watched...

what i was forced to watch this week #13: handmaid may
Minaide!  Hazukashii...
  You know, I actually liked Chobits and to a lesser extent, Buttobi CPU. In those cases, I mainly liked how there actually was a degree of sexuality in the title. Handmaid May doesn’t have that same aspect, but it did at least have a decent protagonist. Funny how tough it can be to find a haremkeeper...

forbidden canadian hentai
Minaide!  Hazukashii...
  There is a list of forbidden porn in Canada. When I first heard about this, I laughed because “Canadian porno” sounds like some kind of goofy euphemism. Either that or that it reminded me of “Canadian tuxedo“. I then laughed at the names of the titles, along with being a bit...

my otome sifr was actually pretty good
Minaide!  Hazukashii...
  The problem with My-Otome wasn’t that it was bad. The problem was that it just didn’t have enough time to handle its scope. That show really needed another cours so that it could have some kind of resolution that didn’t feel incredibly rushed and settled with deus ex machina. The...

what i was forced to watch this week #12: ginban kaleidoscope
Minaide!  Hazukashii...
  I haven’t seen very many sports anime. The only ones I can think of off of the top of my head are Umisho, and if you count it, Yakitate Japan. But both of these are comedies, and the comedy is the focus, rather than the sport. Ginban Kaleidoscope probably doesn’t really count either....

Minaide!  Hazukashii...
  Courtesy of Digg: He found coloured cartoons of the characters Bashful and Doc from the 1937 Disney film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which were signed A.H., and an unsigned sketch of Pinocchio as he appeared in the 1940 Disney film. Hitler tried to make a living as an artist before his rise to...

what i was forced to watch this week #11: i my me strawberry eggs
Minaide!  Hazukashii...
  Ai My Me Strawberry Eggs is one of those inspirational teacher animes. What sets it apart from other anime of this genre like GTO or Gokusen is that rather than by inspiring the students by driving off a cliff, Hibiki-sensei inspires her students by being a trap. They don’t actually know that...

pop japan’s 2008 tours: are fujoshi overtaking otaku?
Minaide!  Hazukashii...
  I remember when Pop Japan more or less just did some general Japanese tours around Tokyo or Kyoto. Then they expanded it and did a samurai one where you got to see some castles. Then they added an anime one where you went to Akihabara. This year, they still had a general Japan tour (with a stop in...

what i was forced to watch this week #10: the law of ueki
Minaide!  Hazukashii...
  My original goal was to do one post a week like this. That worked out fine when I was watching an OVA or a short series, usually was OK with a 24 episode series, but suffice to say doesn’t work out that well with a 51 episode series. On one of the Anime Nano podcasts, I said that the shounen-ness...

weeaboo dining: sakae sushi
Minaide!  Hazukashii...
  Sakae Sushi is a Singaporean conveyor belt (kaiten) sushi chain, which opened its first branch in Manhattan recently. I visited there a few days after it opened. Before Sakae Sushi opened, the only conveyor belt sushi place in Manhattan to my knowledge was the one East in Murray Hill, which I recommended...

a quick note on harvey and etsuko’s manga guide to japan
Minaide!  Hazukashii...
  I was reading Brigid’s review of Harvey & Etsuko’s Manga Guide to Japan when I realized something: one of the artists for that book is Mimei Sakamoto. Yes, that Mimei Sakamoto.
