Chihayafuru: The Love Game Continues

blindability penginA year and a half ago, when Chihayafuru Season One had just rolled out, I wrote a post about the sort of Love Triangle playing out between Chihaya, Taichi, and Arata. Now, ten episodes into the second season, I’m taking another look to see how things have – or haven’t – developed.

manga: Onepunch Man

blindability penginIt’s not often I write about manga that I read – actually, this is the first time I’ve posted about manga in general. But there’s something about this particular manga – Onepunch Man – that’s work mentioning. I happened upon this manga by accident; it was one of those times where you fly through the entire list of manga offered by one site, stop randomly, and give whatever you land on a shot. Basically, I was bored. And I know I was bored because despite a lack-lustre preview image (I don’t remember which site I was on when I stumbled upon Onepunch Man) and a fairly uninspired summary (basically about a hero who decimates his opponents with a single punch), I still went on to read it. And I’m very glad I did, because Onepunch Man is pretty awesome.

My sexuality is being jeopardized: Kyoto new project is K-ON! w/ ONLY boys!

Remember that rant I posted the other day saying:

Sigh, I was really hoping for K-ON! 2.0 with boys edition.

Kyoto got right on it.  BUT THIS IS NOT WHAT I MEANT!  AND THEY”RE SERIOUS!!   They literally just made the four genderbent into hot bishounens. I wanted cute girls who regularly interacted with boys on a day to day basis.  Not cute guys only!  In the fujoshi population of the anime fandom, you can hear the arousal calls of thousands going: “UEHEHEHEHEHEH.”  And the REAL issue is. I might just join them.

i hate how the titles of my posts are all lowercase: a rant in 2 parts.

It surprised me the other day when I had to explain to a person that the purpose of anime is to create fantasies.  Humans have dreamed of other worlds to cope with their situation before long ago.  Have you ever daydreamed while looking out the window of a more stressless time? Say summer break when you went to the pool.  Or maybe you’re daydreaming about reading that book you stayed up late reading.  Thinking of something you would rather do than what you’re doing now is a very common coping mechanism for humans.

Comparing the visual detail and quality to Haganai NEXT is like comparing a Ferrari to a Shopping Cart.
