    Hey roach lovers, check out Max Factory‘s upcoming figma Terraformar from the manga (and soon to be anime) Terra Formars! Johj! Looks like Max Factory’s taking a leaf from Kaiyodo’s book by giving figma Terraformar a feature commonly seen in Revoltech figures – moveable eyes. From the product description at goodsmile.info: “The Terraformar’s eyes can be moved left and right, allowing you match his line of sight with any pose.” Figma Terraformar looks really cool, and if I had monies, I’d surely army build this guy. Hopefully Max Factory’s…

    For the past few months we have been working on a different approach to building Smart Doll Automatic Version - using a system of pulleys which are controlled by servo motors - rather than having servos placed in all the limbs. The main problem we faced with the servos in the limbs was the lack of torque needed to be able to move the limbs especially when they are clothed. Then where was things like overheating issues too. I told myself that there just had to be a better way to do this - most probably with pulleys. It turns out that somebody had done something similar back in 1988! This photo…

In the manga, the girls were a bit different in personalities... for example, Amy was more of the stuck up type than Mars was made out to be in the anime.  Also, the manga went into more detail on Tuxedo Mask /…

    I wonder how much flashback material they have, it was like one chapter of the manga Summary: Futaba tells Kou how she wasn’t able to fix things with her friends but also that she has come to realize that she is all right with that. Ugly-sweater-sensei enters their conversation to tell Kou that he is staying for dinner. After listening to Futaba’s name for the first time, he remembers one time in their watercolor days when he found Kou blushing while writing her name in his notebook. He is about to tell that to Futaba but Kou reacts first and distracts him. Kou then grabs Futaba’s wrist…

    28 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    Working off the supposition that a nutty plotline is the basis for a good adventure, I like finding anime that has just enough wackiness to make me laugh but not so much that I’m left asking if there's some TV show or movie in Japan I should be watching in order to get the joke. If that’s true, then Tenamonya Voyagers has all the ingredients I’m looking for. In the future, Earth stands on the edge of a galactic empire. Actually two in fact: the Central Democratic Planetary Federation and the Shinsei Greater Milky Way Empire. They have settled their differences and signed a…

    At a good con, there’s always more to see and do than can be accommodated by one person’s schedule. (See future ad: Ink seeks con lackey.) ConnectiCon maintained that tradition this year with a strong panel lineup and some star-studded voice talent. While I’m not usually one to be wooed into panels or press junkets by voice actors or actors in general, there was something undeniably and decadently nostalgic about the combined appearances of Rob Paulsen (Pinky) and Maurice LaMarche (Brain), Richard Horvitz (Zim) and Nikki Simons (GIR), and Alan Oppenheimer (Falcor) and Noah…
  • Snapshot: Germany Annexes Japanese Lore (Folktales from Japan)

    15 Jul 2014 | 1:08 pm
    Syncretism is a mainstay of Japanese culture. Movies, music, spirituality, and more from other countries are often adapted to complement modern life—the culmination of a long history rife with imagination and ingenuity. But Japan is certainly not alone in doing this. Folktales from cultures in every nook and cranny of the globe have been passed down for generations via oral tradition (and later in written collections). It's only natural that those same stories, upon spreading beyond their local and regional boarders via the likes of intrigued traders and passing travelers, change…

    I’ve had enough people ask me what the deal is with Kantai Collection that I realize there aren’t many sources that spell it out in plain English. Those that are familiar with "KanColle," for short, are either too busy playing or speak too much jargon for outsiders to understand. I started playing to find out what the fuss is about and, well, here I am nearly half a year later with more hours logged than I care to admit. Reviewing a browser game is a fool’s errand, so this is more of an explanation of what exactly KanColle is for the curious and baffled. At its heart, the…

    Imagine, for a moment, that you’re going to this hypothetical restaurant called the House of Bacon that is the talk of the town. Everyone raves over how it serves some of the most mouthwateringly scrumptious bacon that you’ll ever taste, prepared in all manners, shapes, and sizes. Now, imagine that you’ve decided to try its delicious fare and step in. But wait! You have to eat a bowl of uncooked tofu before you’re allowed to try any of the bacon. You’re right to be annoyed by this turn of events, but you grimly soldier on, determined to get to the bacon.

I’ll finally settle into my permanent hours at work this week (I gets the late shift), and the site should have some stuff that I stalled on for months up this week. Because anything is ... Read more

    Usually I have to be in the mood to watch certain anime, in spite of how good I may think the show is. Perfect example, Golden Time. I love the show but I haven't been in the mood for it in the last month or so. The stars just need to be alligned the right way (hopefully that happens soon 'cause I am way behind). Though every once in a while you get what I call a universal anime, for which you're always in the mood. Basically doesn't matter if you just walked out of a wedding or a funeral, you are always ready for this show. For me, that's Outbreak Company. It's a shame that there aren't more…

    There is no need for words here. Just watch the trailer. Tell me it doesn't take you back to the days of what I can only refer as "organic animation" of anime. Notice the little to no use of cell shading? Thats right, this is a mature looking anime. Just watching it, you start to get hints of Cow Boy Bebop all over the place. I would gamble that the same people are behind it.And as if this eye watering animation wasn't enough, Yoko freaking Kano is the composer for the show. :PThis upcoming gem is called Zankyō no Terror.

    It used to be that "Sex sells". Actually that is probably still the case. However good design sells as well. Thats why new iPhone releases create long lines for days and people buy fuel guzzling sports cars even though they'll never have to go over 90mph. One of my new passions these days is good design. Didn't even know it was an interest of mine till I found myself talking about it a lot during a job interview. While browsing the web looking up mundane things that have been restored with outstanding design, I stumbled upon these awesome Hello Kitty fire extinguishers. Compared to the drab…

    The Japanese are known for their weird quirky things. And this clip is proof that they haven't lost their touch.Honestly, I don't rememeber the last time I had a burger from a fast food joint. They're all freaking disgusting in my opinion.And this clip took that grossness to another level. Yet... it was strangely relaxing watch as the person took their time to create a happy meal out of mystery powder.

  • Act 2 “Ami -Sailor Mercury-” Review

    Moon Martiza
    28 Jul 2014 | 4:33 pm
    Luna was awesome in this episode. She came off as so intelligent and understanding, more so than in the original anime. I love that we saw her headquarters. It does make me wonder if it really is at the arcade, as was its location in the manga. This episode also proves that the anime is not doing exactly what was done in the manga. There’s a hilarious scene in the manga when Luna scratches Ikuko’s (Usagi’s mother) face. It’s unfortunate that we didn’t have that in the anime, but this episode was still extremely enjoyable, more than I thought possible. Ami…

    Honestly, when the trailers and the sneak peek came out, I wasn’t entirely impressed. I thought the animation didn’t suit the anime well and the transformation was horribly underwhelming. I regret feeling that way because the first episode was absolutely wonderful. I don’t believe it could’ve been more enjoyable to watch.   I’m going to separate this review into categories of anime. I would mention the writing but they followed the manga as close as they could get to it. It was nearly an exact animation of the first chapter and fortunately, very well-executed.  …
