Upgrading to Nana: Getting to Know Windows 7

nanami-smiling

Several days after Windows 7’s launch I have finally got it up and running on my desktop and I’m glad to say that it seems to live up to its hype. It combines the things I like about the two previous iterations of Windows with good updates to keep it from feeling too much like …

[Lyrics] Macross F Movie Insert Song pink monsoon [Sheryl Nome starring May’n]

pink monsoon by Sheryl Nome starring May'n

Just when I had forgotten about the upcoming Macross F movie (due mid-November), a new single from Sheryl Nome (voiced by rising idol May’n) appeared! “pink monsoon” is a steamy song that really brings out Sheryl’s sultry idol image – my face was all red as I translated the lines! This is my first time …

Chronicles of Eri: The Road to Rank D

eri-shiny-flowers

Ever since I got my first bad end in iDOLM@STER Dearly Stars I’ve made great progress on Eri’s story. I redid the audition and this time around I achieved idol rank E. After Eri proved that she could sing she was presented with two more challenges that confronted her new career as a real world …

After a short break Yuri on the Chalkboard is back again. This week’s drawing features Shirai Kuroko and her beloved Misaka Mikoto Onee-sama. I’ll hold off my explanation of why I like this pairing since I already wrote a dedicated post just about why I like Kuroko. Original picture below:

My New Heroine Kuroko

kuroko-spike-attack

Although it’s ten days into October I haven’t really started watching anything from the fall season except one thing–To Aru Kagaku no Railgun. Despite being a fan of Index it wasn’t like I was in any real hurry to watch Railgun until my friend Aorii convinced me to watch it together. What I expected going …

I Can’t Believe I got Bad End with Eri

cyneria-eri

It seems the appeal of newly acquired games is impossible for me to resist so while taking a break from translating I decided to play a little more iM@S Dearly Stars. Things were going along smoothly in Lesson mode as I trained Eri’s stats so that everything was more or less equal. I also was …

Dearly Stars GET

After exactly three long weeks of waiting I finally got my copy of iDOLM@STER Dearly Stars this morning. It’s kind of sad though that now that I finally have it my short break from school is just about over and I’ll be having my second round of exams soon so I probably won’t be able …

Black★Rock Shooter -Pilot Edition-

brs-pe-1

When I first heard that Black★Rock Shooter, a Vocaloid song, would be getting its own anime next spring I was excited but dumbfounded. How can you base an entire television series on a four minute PV even if it will be predominately action-based? At first I thought that BRS would feature the Vocaloid cast in …
