I’m not too sure what I’m doing anymore, to be honest.
The community’s gone to shit (not all that surprising, to be honest) even though there are cool dudes in it,.
And then I get the news that minori (blocks websites to foreign fans because they ARE xenophobic douchebags) is practically begging NNL (BREAK THE SUPPORT DISC, etc) to stop distributing their works.
Apparently it would appear that NNL’s previous experience with such incidents (more like Gipface et al giving minori the finger due to LOL DIFFERENT COUNTRIES) has forced minori into doing this so-called face-saving gesture.
…There’s also an announcement happening on the 21st of July. I can’t say that this fills me with a lot of positive emotions. It’s either NNL getting to work on and distribute minori’s products overseas (a prospect that fills me with dread) or it’s going to be the finger again.
There’s no good that can come out of this deal, to be honest, and well, what can I say or do to change the situation? Most I can do is to tell people about it and hope they make the right decision and boycott the unholy union if it ever happens.
Oh well, it could be worse. It could have been Moogy.
And then Go Nagai saw what Imagawa did, and he was pleased. So pleased, he ANNOUNCED A NEW MAZINGER ANIME.
It’s not Shin Mazinkaizer, BUT WHO CARES.
Also, HURR SOURCE.
WHAT HAS SCIENCE HAVE I DONE D:
Why am I playing Sharin No Kuni after so long
Why am I Chapter 2
Why am I staring at THE TERRIBLE SEXYTIME OF THE SOUL D:
Why is Sachi so moe D:
Why isn’t it animated D:
Why is the Main Character such a manipulative weaksauce M piece of crap asshole
(Translation: I am playing Sharin no Kuni, and I am enjoying myself immensely. Until I had to make a choice at the Hscene. And then my tenous grip on reality snapped. Like a twig.)
HOLY SHIT IT’S MOGRA
They play anime songs and Touhou song remixes. Mostly. Mostly trance stuff. BUT IT’S ALL GOOD.
Also FUCK EVERYONE NEEDS TO LISTEN TO THIS. MANUALLY.
And that would be to license these few GLORIOUS titles for the greater weeaboo.
- THE LEGEND OF KOIZUMI
- Vinland Saga
- Fate/Kaleid Liner ~PRISMA ILYA~
- Fate/Kaleid Liner ~PRISMA ILYA~ 2wei!!!
- MGLN ViViD
Partly because I don’t give a shit about how OneManga has more hits than ANN or how the self-righteous the fucks at ANN are clearly deluded for thinking that pulling a Bang-Zoom (that is, revealing trade secrets) is going to help their cause or anything, but clearly the licensors should, at least for good PR’s sake, listen to their cash cows once in a while. AND LICENSE THESE TITLES, FOR A START. BECAUSE FUCK, I WANT TO READ MANGA, NOT QUARREL OVER STUPID THINGS. I’LL PAY GOOD MONEY TO GET A HARDCOPY OF ANY OF THESE TITLES. OR ALL OF THEM.
So, will someone license at least Vinland Saga for me? Or even THE LEGEND OF KOIZUMI?
Personally, I haven’t watches Bakemontogatari beyond the first episode. It was a nice, if talky show. In fact, in my head, “great conversation” isn’t a plus point for me, considering I’m more of a proper narrative kind of guy.
So on the suggestion of a bro, I decided to get a little drunk and see if it’d improve the experience.
Lo and behold, it did. Somewhat. Details are on Twitter.
And just for everyone: I’m bloody contrarian, and that’s why I’m only watching Bakemontogatari after everyone else has. And it’s looking to be a great show. Unlike Angel Beats.
Before we start off, I’d like to make an announcement.
Nova is getting hitched to Hideyoshi. Somewhere out there, shinn is getting seriously ticked off. Somehow. (I am going to run this joke into the ground. Or until I get bored. Or die. Or something. Even if Nova is goign to get hitched to Fate-chan anyhoo. HIS FIRST WAIFU WILL ALWAYS BE HIDEYOSHI. NO EXCEPTIONS.)
Now onto the show.
- Oh you, TK. Always so wonderfully weird and… … … SECRETLY TIM HOWARD? But that’s impossible! He’s BALD.
- Otonashi has a girly name LOL YUZURU Y U SO GIRLYNAME
- Naoi is yaoi for OtoYaoishi. (See what I did thar)
- Kanade T_T
AND THEN, EPISODE 10 HAPPENED.
After making Yui-nyan so painfully annoying (and pretty much cementing his status as being completely incapable of comic timing FOREVER) in Episode 4, Maeda Jun gives her an entire episode to herself, ending with bloody nHinata going I’LL FUCKING MARRY YOU NO MATTER WHAT as if he finished playing Katawa Shoujo Act 1 and realized Yui was a cripple for life. And then my jaw dropped and my brain shat bricks.
My brain is still shitting bricks at that. HEAR THAT MAEDA JUN, WE WANT MORE MOMENTS LIKE THIS, NOT STUPID GAY JOKES AND SPINNING ROCKET LAWNCHAIRS.
