[Lyrics] Amagami SS Character Image Songs For You… – Shiawase no Sunahama [Nanasaki Ai (CV: Yukana)]


So Project Amagami is finally back! The first song I decided to release was Ai’s last image song which translates to Sandy Beach of Happiness since she’s one of my favorite characters. The other girls’ songs will start trickling out as well as I get around to proofreading the translations as well as add romanizations since I never bothered to do those. As for the song itself, I like the water imagery used and how generally sweet it is. As a side note I’ll be adding the seiyuu names to post titles from now on. Anyway, enjoy!

[Lyrics] To Aru Kagaku no Railgun OVA OP – future gazer [fripSide]


Here is a song requested by Akaya. I don’t know why I didn’t translate this song when it first came out since it’s a fantastic song. In fact it is my favorite Railgun song so I never skip it when it comes up on the playlist. Anyway enjoy the translation.

[Lyrics] Steins;Gate ED – Toki Tsukasadoru Juuni no Meiyaku [Sakakibara Yui]


Here’s the other Steins;Gate song requested by Templa which translates into something like The Twelve Pledges Which Govern Time. Like before I tried to keep the translation consistent with scientific language when possible. Not sure I have more to say other than please enjoy.

[Lyrics] Steins;Gate OP – Hacking to the Gate [Itou Kanako]


As the first part of my attempt to escape my prolonged translation absence, here is my latest work requested by Templa for a fansubbing project. I might be a little rusty and the lyrics are different from the type I’m usually used to but I hope that you like my work. Given the nature of the song and series in general, I tried to use scientific and pseudo-scientific language when applicable while trying to maintain flow. ED is also almost done but needs to undergo final revisions and such for being made public. Hopefully that should be out fairly soonish. Anyway please enjoy this for now.

Summer 2011 Anime Watch List: NEET Mode Activate


After much inactivity on the blog I finally present my assorted musings on the shows I will be following next season. I may be picking up a life-threatening number of new anime to watch as I did last season. I originally started writing this post (alongside numerous other posts) while I was out of the country for several weeks without access to high-speed internet so I had to wait until getting back to watch all of the PVs before completing my impressions. Also because of the time crunch after coming back I was unable to check out the original source material like normal so some of these expectations may wander off from what they really should be so please forgive me. As normal I have omitted things that I have already started watching to save space. Now onwards to (roughly sorted) insanity!

Yuri on the Chalkboard Week 57: Farewell Yuri Chalk


After 57 episodes, I have finally arrived at the very last edition of Yuri on the Chalkboard. Unfortunately due to some unforeseen events yesterday, I couldn’t do it normally so I had to go to my usual room early this morning to draw instead. This final iteration of Yuri Chalk is the most personal one of all, even more so than the previous two. The pair of girls pictured above are best friends Mugi and Hitomi from my personal writing project under the working title ATCG. Although not related, Hitomi’s family took Mugi in after the deaths of her parents. Hitomi and Mugi are nearly inseparable just like sisters though the both of them never admit their true feelings to each other. They are close friends with the protagonist and Samantha making up the core cast of the first arc in my story. Anyway you can read a excerpt from the rough draft below if you want:

“Now that everyone’s here and relaxed let’s get started with today’s business” Hitomi addresses us.

“Tell us! Tell us!” Sam exclaims excitedly.

“As we all know a new year and a new semester has started which mean it’s time to start thinking of how to better ourselves for the new challenges we must face. I mean of course the new spring fashions!”

Sam has a smirk on her face while Mugi has an expression of embarrassment.

“It’s important to have Mugi looking her best wherever she goes so this weekend we’ll be taking an expedition to the shopping arcade in search of cosmetics and clothing!”

Hitomi’s in her own world now and there’s no stopping her.

“Let’s go over the game plan first. We’ll meet up at our house and walk over to the LOOP station and take it to the shopping district.”

Somehow this seems way more convenient for them than it does for me.

“We’ll hit up the usual stores and look for the best looking outfits and accessories. Afterward we can even go have a bite. You’ll try on some clothes too, right Dai?”

“I think I’ll pass. Shopping for clothes is a spectator sport.”

“Oh but you don’t want to try on some pretty dresses?” Sam asks in a pouty voice. “You’d look fabulous in a summer dress and coral lipstick.”

“No way!”

“But you used to like doing it as a kid!”

“That’s because you used to bully me into it. And hey, didn’t I say we would never mention this!” I scream out as I pin her into a headlock. I know this is futile as she breaks free. We quit before it get serious but it’s not something I like to talk about. Before long it’s time for Sam to head off to work. I stick around a little longer until it gets dark before deciding to make my leave.


At the beginning it is very slice of life comedy but quickly spirals into the realm of sci-fi. It’s kind of hard to describe it anymore without just posting the story online. Unfortunately I haven’t completed it yet so cannot do so but hopefully I can make some more progress soon. The story has been floating around inside my head so long that it has really taken on a life of its own. I need to put it down in writing before I go crazy!

With this my duties as my anime club’s Director are finally at an end. These 3.5 years have been incredible. For anyone in my club reading this, please do not pick up this tradition again and to instead find a new one. Thank you so much everyone!

Anime Survey Says…


A week and a half ago, I asked my fellow otaku to answer a simple survey so that I could attempt to do an anime-themed version of the classic game show Family Feud and 149 of you answered the call. After playing it in my club last night I can finally reveal the results to the general public. This post is divided into 10 main sections plus 1 more for other thoughts. Each of the 10 main sections start with the question followed by the number of total responses and the top 7 or 8 responses in block quotes. My thoughts and other interesting responses that did not meet the top 7 or 8 threshold are presented afterward. All numbers are shown as raw data without the normalization we applied for scoring. Responses in bold were guessed correctly while those marked by an asterisk (*) were removed for technical reasons which will be discussed in the other thoughts section. One thing to keep in mind is that many of the questions were designed to test two things: What people would answer and how people would interpret the questions. With that said, let’s take a look at the results!
