What a week! It’s been an exciting one, but also a busy one for me. This week, I’ve been taking care of a sick family member, as well as completely the hands on training required to become a volunteer for the Humane Society. I also have not slept as much as usual this week. I also must apologize for the Suggested Reading Post this week, as I lost a bunch of posts in my google reader before I got to read them, and as such, am probably lacking some wonderful posts.
Currently Airing Anime
Landon talks about why Kyubei is such a fab villain. Yes, he ruined it with his great reveal in the last episode, but still worth reading.
I like Dreameater Merry. One Minute of Dusk does a great job of explaining what makes it enjoyable for me.
Preview for A Channel. Looks to have the potential to be the blandest most uninspired school 4-koma yet.
My History With Anime Continues! This Week, Cutfilmtovent, Yi and 2D-T
Moe Archtypes from Before the Nihon Reviews. Make sure to read the footnotes.
Otaku Like reviews Ika Musume
Do Anime and Manga Fandom have to go together?
One Minute of Dusk reviews Samurai Champloo
An Idiot’s Guide to the Harmful Book’s Regulation, complete with genderbent Ishihara
2D-T talks about Love Roma
Screens for Devil’s Survivor Overclocked. If you haven’t gotten the game yet, I’d say this is worth considering.
School Days VN coming over. Perfect for the days where you’ve been screwed over by a man,or just want to kill people in various gruesome ways for no reason. Oh, and Nice Boat.
Body pillows! What do you think?
RIP Kodansha International. Looks like I need to hurry up and get School Girl Confidential.
There are six days until Pokemon Black and White comes out in America. I am stoked. The real bummer is I have to go to church before I can get the game, but oh well. Out of anticipation, there are going to be quite a few pokemon related posts this week on whatever the heck I feel like. Today, it’s going to be a look at the amount of Pokemon crossover with other animes fanart out there. (If anyone is for some reason trying to keep from being spoiled for 5th gen, this post is not for you.)
Shinryaku! Ika Musume is hard to find much to talk about. It’s, in a nutshell, cute mindless entertainment that succeeds at both being funny as well as keeping the viewer engaged. It had a very light hearted first episode containing promise of some very strong and likable characters. We’re left watching the antics of Squid Girl when she comes ashore and meets up with the family running the shop on the beach.
