iDOLMASTER XENOGLOSSIA

iDOLM@STER XENOGLOSSIA ImberUsually during Thanksgiving, I end up marathoning an anime from start to finish. Two years back, I ended up watching all 52 episodes of Full Moon wo Sagashite in the span of two days. Anyone who knows about this series will tell you that it gets pretty depressing towards the end. Anyways, this year I ended up watching iDOLM@STER XENOGLOSSIA. If that title sounds kind of strange, that’s probably because you have never heard of THEiDOLM@STER before. THEiDOLM@STER is a game created by Namco originally for arcades in which you take the role of a producer who has to take a group of up-and-coming amateurs and turn them into the most popular idols in the nation, thus the name “THEiDOLM@STER.” You can check out the wonderful song Go My Way!! in the video below.

Culture Presentation Seifuku

ハルヒセーラー服Today was my culture presentation so I decided to do Seifuku (制服) or uniforms, specifically school uniforms. I think I left some parts out and my English failed near the end so I am typing a short synopsis. They were introduced in the late 19th century and based on Meiji military dress which was based on European military uniforms. There are 2 main types: Gakuran (学ラン) for boys and Sailor Fuku (セーラー服) for girls. Gakuran are based on Prussian army uniforms and sailor fuku are based on British naval uniforms because they were the primary military and naval powers at the time. School uniforms are required for middle and high school but not in most elementary schools.

Top 60 Japanese Buzzwords of 2007

Taken from Pink Tentacle:

Publisher Jiyu Kokuminsha has announced this year’s crop of nominees for Japanese buzzword of the year. The wide-ranging selection of 60 words and expressions — many of which come from the worlds of politics, sports and entertainment — were selected based on suggestions from the general public, and they provide an interesting look at some of the events, people and trends that had an impact on Japan in 2007.

A panel of judges will choose the year’s grand prize winner and top 10 buzzwords from these 60 nominees. The final results will be announced on December 3.

You can see the original announcement in Japanese here.

Speech Project Draft 1

Adobe Creative Suite 2私はきょねんブルークポイントこうこうの四ねんせいでした。ブルークポイ ントはバージニアのスタッファードにあります。スタッファードはクアンティコとフレデリックスバーグのあいだです。私はあたまがいい(Smart)学生ですから、こうこうはやさしかったですよ。先生がすきですが、こうこうがすきではありません。クラスはつまらなかったよくですが、アーツのクラスがすきです。だから三ねんぐらいありました。でも四ねん生の時にAP生ぶつ学がありましたから、APアーツがありませんでした。でもたいていAP生ぶつ学でえをかいて、よかったです。コンピューターもアニメもすきです。だから時々コンピューターをつかって、アニメのえをかきました。人といえのえもかきましたが、コンピューターをぜんぜんつかいませんでした。まい日ひまの時にれんしゅうしますから、きれいなえですよね。でも今はあまりひまの時がありま せん。かなしい(Sad)ではありませんね。でもクラスメイトのえをかきましょうか。きれいですよね。

planetarian

It seems I have have gone crazy this week and I ended up watching all the anime I was planning to and still had plenty of spare time. So I decided that a change of pace was needed. Of course being being the massive otaku that I am, I went with the obvious choice of playing a visual novel. I was going to play One ~To the Radiant Season~ but I found planetarian ~the reverie of a little planet~ waiting to be played.

What do you think about the Planetarium?
That beautiful twinkling of eternity that will never fade, no matter when…
All the stars in all the sky are waiting for you.

Random Anime Thoughts

Fall 2007 AnimeFridays are always good days for me since I only have one class, JAPN101. Therefore, Fridays are usually my designated anime watching days (though only in name since I pretty much watch everyday). Anyways, today I ended up watching episode 1 of Prism Ark, episode 6 of Myself; Yourself, episode 5 of Shugo Chara! and episode 6 of CLANNAD. So today, I will talk a little bit about these anime and a few more (since I am watching literally a baker’s dozen different series right now).
