    Kawaii Kon weekend is finally here! Here's the new lineup for 2015: 1) Brand new business cards! I'm shifting to promoting not only nemu*nemu, but me as an artist as well~ This also means I'll be venturing out into creating more artwork and illustrations, in addition to my usual lineup of comics. :D 2) Vinyl Stickers! As you may have noticed on my new business card, I'm also changing up the nemu*nemu logo a little to include both Enchilada & Blue as part of the family. I had posted a preview of my business cards on instagram and some folks requested I make them into stickers, so here you go!

  • Japan White Day

    14 Mar 2015 | 6:57 am
    Every March the 14th is "White Day" which is today. To make more monies from Valentines day, the Japanese invented "White Day" as an excuse for men to buy candy to give to women in return for the chocolate that they received - theres even an official White Day site. Japanese culture has marketing down to a tee which encourages women to give chocolate on Valentines day. The reason its called "White Day" is because the color of sugar (white) is the main ingredient for candy which was traditionally given on White Day. These days however, one does not have to give candy and can be white chocolate…

    In the previous Desk Diary, we took a look at the transition of how we went from working out of my house for a few years to finally getting our own proper office. Today, I still look around the office and reminisce at how we managed to startup in such a small place. Since the last time we spoke, I moved desks into the lounge area that I said I wanted to keep clear of workstations - but it seems that we are growing at a pace way faster than I imagined and need to use up as much space as we can before we move office again which is could even be later this year at the rate we are growing.

    26 Mar 2015 | 7:03 am
    Tony Zhou’s excellent series of “Every Frame A Painting” continues with the work of legendary Japanese director Kurosawa Akira, using various film clips from his repertoire of work to illustrate his brilliant use of movement in his camera work and cinematography to accentuate the story : I’ve not seen all of Kurosawa’s films but my favourite among those that I have is seen is still Kagemusha ( Shadow Warrior ), in part due to the rousing and dramatic soundtrack. If you’ve yet to see it I give it my highest, highest recommendations. The Criterion…

  • Studio Ghibli Layout Designs Exhibition Art Book Review

    20 Mar 2015 | 7:11 am
    First held back in 2008, the Studio Ghibli Layout Designs Exhibition showcased an extensive collection of original layout boards used during the production of Ghibli’s animated films and was one of the best art exhibitions I’ve ever seen, period. ( see this post from 2008 ). The reason I’m re-visiting this post is because Ghibli Studios has been dutifully updating the catalog with additional layouts from every feature film they’ve released since the exhibition, like The Tale Of Princess Kaguya ( below ). As such, the book is now quite a bit thicker than when it was…

  • Ejaculação Precoce: Como Controlar?!

    12 Mar 2015 | 10:44 pm
    A ejaculação precoce é um problema que existe desde que o mundo é mundo, mas ganhou destaque apenas nos últimos cinquenta anos. Por que isso ocorre? Nos começo da era moderna, a relação mais restrita e fechada dos casais, não dava espaço para a pública discussão do assunto ou tratamento do mesmo como um problema. Culturalmente, o homem era soberano e isso não era questionado. Até que com a evolução dos anos, e a maior discussão de problemas conjugais, o sexo amplamente praticado não só para reprodução, mas também para diversão, a maior liberdade sexual de forma geral. A…

  • Segredos do Prazer

    28 Feb 2015 | 5:31 pm
    O que o prazer define em uma relação? O que é necessário para se ter prazer? Como a busca por prazer pode acabar prejudicando uma relação ou encontro sem compromisso? O nervosismo é o primeiro dos fatores que causa problemas em quem busca o prazer de uma relação sexual. Com o nervosismo presente na situação, a relação sexual não se desenvolve com a mesma fluidez de uma situação onde a pessoa está confortável com a situação que está envolvida. O medo de uma performance ruim na cama, pode sim proporcionar um desempenho que não agrada o parceiro. Da mesma maneira, o…

    30 Mar 2015 | 9:00 am
    Some people will travel across continents and seas to attend a convention, to spend a weekend sleeping in unfamiliar hotel beds with unfamiliar bedmates, sometimes sleeping right there on the convention hall floor, with one eye open for prowling security guards clearing rooms at closing time. Attending a con means sacrificing comforts and lowering one’s expectations of cleanliness and nutrition, sometimes to the point of bodily harm. Without the endlessly coiling lines and sweltering heat, Genericon has little in common with the major cons that draw in tens of thousands of…

Over the course of two episodes, "Give Me the Stars" (Episode 7) and "After the Rain" (Episode 8), The Rolling Girls layers internal character and interpersonal group conflicts and then interweaves them to 1) represent Japan’s identity crisis and 2) offer a bit of optimism by way of anime’s most grandiose culture festival concert set yet.

  • Squees and Moans: Taiiku Podcast tags Ink to help tackle Wanna Be the Strongest (and Short Peace)

    19 Mar 2015 | 5:46 pm
    Once upon a time, Kory Cerjak, host of the sports anime-centric Taiiku Podcast, had a horrible idea. He decided to review the wrestling anime Wanna Be the Strongest in the World. But he wasn't willing to do it alone. Oh no. Since misery loves company (or is it because cowardice loves deflection?), Kory decided to drag wrestling aficionado Patz, notorious anime hater Tony, and me into the mix. Why me? (You simply cannot conceive of how many times I asked myself that same question while watching Strongest.) Well, by way of apology…
  • Snapshot: Synchronicity (Kokoro Connect)

    16 Mar 2015 | 4:28 am
    Match cuts, a clever editing trick taken advantage of by surprisingly few directors (probably due to the difficulty of planning them out and how conspicuous they can be), were a favorite of anime director Satoshi Kon, who would often move between scenes using a single connecting element — be it an image or a sound. These cuts can show up in some pretty unexpected places though. As an example, I give you the first few moments of Kokoro Connect episode 1. The show opens on a fairly typical modern anime scene: a teenage boy waking up to the voice of his little sister. As he swings his…

  • Music Notes: Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso – Episode 4

    30 Mar 2015 | 7:40 am
    There wasn’t much music in the previous episode of Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso aside from the Mozart lullaby, but it did preview the work that would be given its grand showcasing in episode 4: the “Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso” by Camille Saint-Saens. Camille Saint-Saens doesn’t have the heavy hitting power of Mozart or Beethoven, but he’s got some pieces that are recognizable. Most people will know him for his “Carnival of the Animals”, parts of which are in Disney’s Fantasia, and the “Danse Macabre”. What Saint-Saens really loved…

    Anime Review: Cat Planet Cuties by David Majors When anime with abstract titles come to the Western markets, they usually get changed to something that is opposite of their content. But not with Asobi ni Iku Yo dubbed as Cat Planet Cuties in the West. With a ridiculous—and very Japanese—title, could Cat Planet Cuties be good? No, but it’s not end-of-all-things awful. It’s just hopelessly subpar. Truthfully, this may be the most harmless ecchi harem romantic comedy I’ve ever watched. It doesn’t feel the least bit insidious. Catgirl Eris is more like Sasami from Tenchi Universe…

    There are few occassions in life when it would be okay to crap one's pants in excitement. For me, this was one of them. There is a new Digimon season on the way. Check out the character design which is quite a bit different. They are bringing back the original Digi-destined (those who matter know what this means), which is great. What I am most excited about is the people who will be creating this new season, most notably Cencoroll's Atsuya Uki on character designs. If you're anything like me, the last few seasons of this franchise left you somewhat disappointed.

  • Poetry Month Poem #1 : Beautiful Day

    Srdjan Solkotovic
    31 Mar 2015 | 5:25 pm
    Flowers start to bloom I wake up and I feel alive My world shakes I can’t thank you enough It’s something about the sunshine on my face That makes me feel I can’t be wrong on this day With a smile on my face I walk past the blooming trees Happiness is all I can see And I just started to watch Birds in the air sing their song Fish in the water swim away And humans walk happy on their way This feeling can’t be wrong It makes me hum a song On thins amazingly beautiful day Keeping the bad thoughts locked away Take my hand and smile with me Because today I am truly happy…

    Another day another victory for stupidity! How great it must be to lose a case based on horrible team work, being just a bad person and terrible at their work but still hailed as Hitler himself during his prime in Nazi Germany. This ignorant person by the name of Ellen Pao will be remembered as the one who fought for the rights of all of us in the tech industry, or at least that’s what sites like Venture Beat and their writer Daniel Terdiman . Daniel is clearly the most educated staff there who was perfectly fit to do this article, I mean look at the other things he wrote:   Oh…
  • Review: Seigi no Mikata! (MIYUKI Mitsubachi)

    Srdjan Solkotovic
    30 Mar 2015 | 6:46 am
    A rather forgotten manga that is interesting. This is my review of “Seigi no MIkata!” . Story: Following the story of Mikata Kotarou, a 16-year-old high school student who comes from a poor family and gets into a lot of trouble daily because of mean looking face and his short temper. Since he is the oldest out of 7 brothers and sister he has to work part-time to help he family. I can’t remember but this story is somewhat similar to some anime story(if you know then please leave a comment with the name), so the uniqueness of it lays in the characters. Basically the story at…
  • First Impression: Akatsuki no Yona

    30 Mar 2015 | 5:17 am
    I didn’t think much of this anime before I started it. It piqued my interest only because it had this heroic feel to it with some fantasy like settings. There were a few doubts while watching the first episode but after I finished it I was blown away. The story follows Yona and her tragic story. There are big fights, blood and strong warriors but there are also some funny scenes and some romance in the whole mix. I had a positive feeling watching each episode and it always ended in a way that made me eager to watch the new episode. The characters are designed pretty good and the setting…

  • The Debate: Subs vs. Dubs

    30 Mar 2015 | 4:14 pm
    It’s probably one of the most controversial issues out there. In the realms of famous questions, it might fall below “To be or not to be?” but only just. It’s eternal. It’s unanswerable. You fall to your knees, scream to the gods above- “Should I watch the dub or the sub!?” Okay though, in all seriousness, people take this question personally. There’s some who will only watch sub, some who will only watch dub, and some who watch a little of one and a little of the other. I fall in the last category. I like to try and judge from anime to anime.
  • Review: Durarara!!x2 Shou

    28 Mar 2015 | 1:37 pm
    Durarara!! why you doing this to me? I should let you know, and I probably mentioned this somewhere in my Baccano! review, but the original 2010 anime is one of my absolute favorites. The first season of Durarara!! was one of the first anime I had ever watched, and I adored it. There were so many fascinating characters stuck in this single city, all struggling against each other for the sake of their own goals. Ugh, so why is Shou doing this to me? Remember, there’s going to be spoilers. The last episode of Durarara!!x2 Shou came out today, and I will be addressing the ending. There…
  • Review: Psycho-Pass

    14 Mar 2015 | 1:43 pm
    I’m still reeling from this show. This might have to do with the fact that I watched episodes 17-22 in a single sitting, but it also speaks to the power of the story itself.  Psycho-Pass, whether you call it a good show, an okay show, or a disappointing show, is certainly an interesting show. Let me take a brief moment here at the beginning to link you to my new page defining how I review shows and how I categorize a “Retro Review” versus just a “Review.” Also, let me remind you that this review will contain spoilers and some of the twists of this show are so…
  • The List: Five Anime Studios You Should Probably Know

    8 Mar 2015 | 10:50 am
    So, there’s a ton of anime out there. And, following that fact logically, there’s a ton of studios that make it. I hadn’t really thought about studios until recently when I wondered if there was any common thread tying my favorite anime together- sure enough, many of them came from the same few studios. Looking back on some clips, I could actually see some similarities in the animation style. But I’m not here to talk about my favorite anime studios. I want to give a few studios that, whether you like their work or not, have been become defining presences in the anime…
  • Retro Review: Baccano!

    1 Mar 2015 | 8:57 am
    What ever you think of Baccano!, you’ve got to admit that there’s not much else like it, even outside the realm of anime. It’s got a charm that you can’t find anywhere else, because not much else takes a chance on a story that follows about eighteen main characters over the course of three time periods and three settings (plus a few forays into other times and places) with only a thirteen episode (turned sixteen by three additional episodes released with the DVDs of the series) run. But Baccano! takes the chaos- baccano is the Italian word for ruckus or racket- and…
