Spring 2013 Anime Watch List


At long last it’s time to reveal what I’ll be watching during the upcoming season. Just like the previous season it looks like it’ll be a nearly even split between watching new shows and watching sequels. Overall my level of excitement is roughly the same as last time. However somehow my idols got replaced by …

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 …

Ookami Kakushi: A More Satisfying 07th Expansion Anime Than Umineko


Over the last two weeks I caught up with watching Ookami Kakushi. The last time I had watched it was when I spent my 21st birthday immersing myself in everything 07th Expansion. I watched the first two episodes and after only that I was pretty much able to formulate a solid theory which later proved …

Anime Family Project ReDEUX


Exactly two years ago I posted “my ideal family” if it were to consist of anime, manga and game characters. Basically the idea came to me when I stumbled on an amazing thread randomly in which people would post a list of characters to form a family. Think of Kyouran Kazoku Nikki and that’s pretty …

Day Spent in 07th Expansion Mode


For some reason I spent yesterday in 07th Expansion Mode and ended up watching the first two episodes of Ookami Kakushi. From the very start I couldn’t help but get my tablet ready to take down notes as per usual for mystery-solving purposes and before I knew I had enough to make a post. In …

Taking a Decade Old Anime Otakuness Test


If I didn’t think it looked horribly wordy I would have subtitled this post “Stepping into a past decade before exiting the current one” or something similar. Thanks to Shance I rediscovered the Anime Otaku-ness Test 200, a 200 question assessment of one’s otaku power-level. The test is terribly out-of-date but I think it is …

Playing With Dance×Mixer


In the course of looking for references and ideas for the iDOLM@STER picture that I am currently working on, I somehow found myself on Niconico Douga watching a video featuring iM@S music but with different characters dancing to the music. With the tag “Dance×Mixer” as a guide I did some research and found out that …

Lyrics: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei ED Manazashi by anNina


Another wonderful Higurashi no Naku Koro ni song by anNina. I just love how the lyrics describe Rika’s feelings of committing sin during Saikoroshi-hen. Being the 07th Expansion fan that I am I have translated this set of lyrics in addition to the usual transliteration. Please enjoy.

Lyrics: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei OP Super scription of data by Shimamiya Eiko


Finally the opening single I have been waiting for the most has come out! Super scription of data is a brilliant song and the lyrics match so well with Rika’s story that I obviously HAD to transliterate and translate it. I also included two translator’s notes at the end. I can’t wait for the last …

Summer 2009 Anime Watch List


Taking a break from playing Moon. and with roughly a month left until the start of the summer anime season, I decided to comb through the new shows to compile my quarterly anime watch list. As far as I am concerned the lineup seems to be strong with plenty of variety catering to many of …
