By Brian

Ah hello there and Welcome to the About Page. You can read about the history of Bokutachi no Blog on that little subpage thing up there. There’s also a subpage for Alumni Writers of Bokutachi too.

Name: Thaivu22

Why Thaivu22: I just felt like it. Nah, it’s just derived from my real name and birthday date.
Brief Bio: First of all, I’m not from Thailand, lol. I’m a Vietnamese-Canadian living in the great city of Montreal where hockey is almost a religion (Go Habs Go).  I became an anime fan during a trip to Vietnam in 2006 due to food poisoning which forced me to stay in the bed hotel for a few days. Since then, I’ve crammed at least 200 full anime TV series and many manga series. I’m not the most social person ever in real life. You could say I’m a bit apathetic with a little touch of sadism…I would make a great world tyrant. Deducing from that last sentence, it wouldn’t false to say that I’m a narcissist too.
Anime Preference: I can actually like anything that isn’t Yaoi, Yuri, Tragedy, or Loli. I’ll watch anything that doesn’t bore me. As a perverted man with a certain fetish for non-yaoi gender bender, bro-sis incest and non-reverse harem, fan-service pleases me a lot when it isn’t too abused. While I do not really like shoujo anime, I love the genre in the manga format. My 3 favorite anime shows of all time are “One Piece”, “Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka?” and “Kara no Kyoukai:  The Garden of Sinners”.
Blogging Style: I do episodic reviews mostly about harem anime, though I don’t guarantee writing about boring filler episodes. I might group some episodes together if I’m losing writing inspiration in my mind. I’m also the type that uses pictures as distraction material. I have a habit of finding any reason to rant on something, because, if I can’t find any rant material, things start to become messy as I find no desire to write about a perfectly good anime. HEIL Mediocrity!
My ID picture is obviously Elizabeth from Gintama…WHAT THE HELL IS THIS THING?!

Name: jGLZa

Why jGLZa:
jGLZa is the current evolution of an online handle that I have had since the dawn of the internet. The “GL” stands for Green Lantern, my favorite comic book character and whom I would openly admit to being a fanboy of. In the Green Lantern universe pairs of GL’s are assigned sectors of space to serve and protect. So I assigned myself to my own country – South Africa, hence the “Za” as it is South Africa’s international abbreviation code. And the latest addition, the “j” is simply the first letter of my name. I needed to add that in for stupid Xbox LIVE to recognise my gamertag as unique.

Brief Bio:
As I alluded to in my name’s origin I am from South Africa, born and raised. I was first introduced to anime via the “greatest” anime ever – ROBOTECH and because of that my first love of anime is and always will be Mecha. When anime isn’t taking up my time you can find me keeping up to date with the latest happens in the DC comic Universe, perhaps my only interest that could rival my love for anime. Lastly in my trio of life’s interests is sports. No I don’t play much anymore but I am a dedicated fan of competitive sports and will pretty much watch and support any and all sports; yes even curling.

Anime Preferences:

Obviously anything and everything Mecha, I loves things piloted by children that go boom! Otherwise I enjoy things that make me think or hurt my brain (there maybe a correlation there) but I also like the occasional comedy and am totally accepting of the increasing amount of ecchi-ness. I should also mention that I utterly despise the moeblob phenomenon but am powerless to hide my love for K-ON, just cannot get enough of that sh!t.

Blogging Style:
I’ll give episodic posts a bash but if I run out of steam/stuff to say I may do a few grouped posts. In my head (when I’m writing stuff) I sound hilarious and witty, however not everybody is on the same level of awesome as me so I usually come across as dry and sarcastic… alas you all will just have to deal with that. Occasionally I will try and be creative and throw in an introspective on a certain show or theme from a show, but those will be far and few between. Lastly, I totally dig season previews. Expect me to be brash and make unfounded predictions in those.

Name: Blindability

Why Blindability: …That’s a good question. I might credit it to the notion that I’m whimsical at times, ‘blindly’ acting without much thought. And in compilation with whatever ability I possess (ie writing) it would be ‘blindability’. Or I could just say “because I said so”, which works nicely as well.

Brief Bio: Canadian born and raised Chinese girl. I love all things fantastical in nearly every form minus poetry; I hate poetry (mostly because I don’t understand it). If I’m not watching anime then I’m most likely writing, reading, baking or sleeping. Oh: or working but it’s not like I have a choice in that matter.

Anime Preferences: I’m actually incredibly flexible. I’ll give anything a shot at least once. The first series I watched was the Ah! My Goddess OVA which consisted of five episodes. My older brother watched Cowboy Bebop but didn’t feel like sharing with his little sister. I like romance, I like comedy, I like cute girls and beautiful boys. I’m always up for a good fight and great animation. I particularly like anime with ideas and societal structures that challenge reality and get your imagination going. But I’ve also been known to follow series with plots that barely hold themselves together.

Blogging Style: I try to do episodic posts but if the series is moving at an incredibly slow pace I’ll review two or more episodes in a single post. I’m not particularly funny… which I can’t really do anything about unfortunately. I promised Brian I’d do my best in adding humor to my posts but let’s face it, I’m not laugh-out-loud funny. Quirky, maybe… Oh: and I have a thing for good grammar, punctuation, and aesthetic formatting.

My current ID photo is Yui from K-ON!. She’s one of those characters who are cute but incredibly useless. I’m not sure how that reflects on me personally, but I think I might be okay with being useless to an incredible degree as long as I’m cute.

Name: Poro

Why Poro:Simple, My name, cut out a bunch of letters, add in one or two, and you get Poro

Brief Bio: I grew up thirty minutes away from California.  Moved to Michigan.  I lived near an anime shop thingy and the people older and younger were all hard core otaku/pseudotakus. I followed blogs only several years ago though.

Anime Preferences: Either shoujo like Honey and Clover that get’s you thinking or kickass action like Gundam, must have excessive amount of jokes and humor and be deep very deep.  No mindfuckery please.  No excessive costumes or hair styles too.

Blogging Style: Depends, but I usely like to make it short and very to the point.  Episodic: Take a bunch of screen shots.  Pick the best ones and blog a quick summary and a longer thoughts section.  News:  The news.  Deep-food-for-thought post:  Very long compared to others and hopefully deep and mind boggling.

Favourite Anime: The funniest and deepiest anime so far.

Favourite Character: Haruhi duh.

Name: Loba (on hiatus)

deathnote

I AM LOBA LOL.

A little bit on the display pic: it’s L from death note, was particularly captivated by the subtle actions of L whenever he ate something and this really got my attention so it was chosen.

The origins of Loba: I was just a 7-8 old year accompanying my parents on a shopping trip  when I saw this Levi advertisement playing on the TV inside the Levi store. The song that was played is ‘Bombastic‘ the second single released by Shaggy from his album Bombastic. The song apparently stuck in my subconscious till I was 12 when upon launching MSN for the first time, I recalled that particular advertisement and mis-spelled Mr Lomba as Loba(ba) for my nick. From that day on,my friends just called me Lobaba. The nick eventually evolved over the years: Lobaba(1999-2003), Loba(2004~Present). Also known as LObama(2008~Present). (Fun fact: Loba in one chinese dialect literally means Lean meat, which could be said much about my lean (and mean) frame heh)

Brief Bio: I’m a chinese guy from Singapore and no, it’s not part of China, yes my grandparents hail from there but chinese Singaporeans are totally different from the Chinese in China  just as most overseas chinese are. Currently attending National University of Singapore studying environmental engineering, also webmaster of NUS Comic and Animation Society. I’m a tech junkie as well, am the proud owner of the 3rd PC which I personally built. The first PC I built literally melted down(CPU fan stopped spinning and the AMD Duron CPU overheated to 100 degrees woohoo) and the second PC was sold to fund the current PC built back in early 2007, cycled through many portable electronics: ipod touch, psp slim, cowon A3, S9, searching for the ultimate all in one device and settled on omnia i8910HD recently.

Anime Preferences: Similarly to Scamp, Yaoi, Yuri and fanservice moe anime are not my cup of tea but that’s where the similarity ends: When I was a kid, I managed to watch four anime series on TV: Jubei Chan, Samurai X and Gundam Wing. Occasionally, Dragonball Z movies are broadcasted as well. These pretty much define the bulk of my anime taste: mecha, sci-fi and shounen. Of course, I would give everything a shot if the potential is there for a great story, otherwise, stuff like nodame cantabile and Honey & Clover would never have made it to my watchlist.

Blogging Style: I had been doing episodic reviews in the past but that didn’t exactly work out since i) laziness took over ii) it is really time consuming to get good screencaps during normal school days. iii)I stopped watching halfway due to wane of interest. Currently musing over whether I should try episodic reviewing with more pictures less words since I tend to ramble on and on and on OR an ending Final Impressions kinda post but with minimal pictures and a nice summary. One last idea I have could be fun but extensively tiring for sure so you could say I’m freestyle at the moment.

    Hi, nice blog =) was just reading through about darker than black which I am watching. Might like to take a note at episode 3 where Hei left the cigarettes on top of the rubbish bin. That might be his remuneration. OR it could just contain instructions for his next mission which I doubt so since he always meet up with Huang for instructions. The part about Hei eating to clear his remuneration is not true as Havoc mentioned that he used to eat a lot even before he became a contractor, right?

    Cheers.

    It seems that you are very peculiar with the details, which is good. Even I missed that one out – when Havoc said that Hei used to eat a lot before. I’ve through the episodes mentioned. In episode 3, the cigarette was given to Hei and with that includes a wristwatch. However Hei only took the watch and threw away the cigarette. Likely he is not receiving information there but to get the watch instead, though I don’t know what’s the watch is for. Now from what Havoc, that might be suggestive that eating is not Hei’s remuneration. To be frank, Hei loves to eat a lot whether he uses his powers or not. But buying a pack of cigarette and threw it away doesn’t seem a remuneration for Hei since it was only been done once. Since then, he never did that again. Not unless the writers plan to keep Hei’s remuneration a mystery. For now, the best bet for Hei’s remuneration is to eat a lot.

    Hope you’re satisfied with my answer.

    Hi again, since Havoc mentioned Hei used to eat a lot, I reaffirm my stand that being a glutton is not hei’s remuneration 😉 But true, it was only shown once, the part about the cigaratee pack, so yea, it most likely isn’t his remuneration..’

    If you observe carefully in the 3rd episode, the watch was meant to be a listening device in that researcher’s room because when hei went there, he knocked some stuff of f the table and in that split second*bam*, he left the watch on the table =D

    Hai, can’t get enough of Darker than black!!! Continue the gd work with the blog! =)

    Hey, Loba here. Just wondering how you added “Home” “About me” and “downloads” to the pagebar. Did you use custom CSS?

  5. 5 Brian
    25 November 2007 at 5:04 pm

    Just add page. It’s on the WRITE menu. Got WRITE PAGE in it. Once you’ve done a page, then a page will be added automatically on the menu bar of the main page. No custom CSS but if you do opt for custom CSS, I think you need to upgrade to a paid account, which is obviously not an option in my mind.

    p/s: How come I can’t access your page yet? Under construction?

    Came across your site while investigating typhoid cases in my distrct (Manjung Perak). All 3 cases had epidemiological link i.e history of visiting Kelantan on Nov 24th & had fever 2 weeks later a/w passing loose stools. ALL are pediatric age gp. Youngest being 1 yr 4/12 ang eldest 14 yr old boy. Any recent OB of typhoid in Kelantan? Add given to me is in Jln Hospital. Any idea whether there is any OB there or not?

    I’m not sure about the point of origin for the outbreak but this typhoid case is already a thing in the past. When there was a breakout last year, the state health department cried panic and all of the eateries in Kelantan were required to make a major cleanup and also requested to close for a few days – bringing up the case in this post I made. If you are doing investigation for the case study of typhoid in Kelantan and its connection with the case in your place, I reckon you to check on the local authorities here in Kelantan or better still the state health department or the local hospitals. I’m sure they can help you in that matter.

    Sorry that I can’t be more of a help. I’m just a visiting student here anyway. Moreover epidemiology is not my major so I may lack knowledge in this matter.

  17. 16 March 2008 at 10:47 pm

    Oh hell! That’s torture, man! “Extra” workout is not something I would like in mind. And I bet you must be fit… *look at my bulging belly*

  20. 17 June 2008 at 10:55 pm

    “This anime stuff?” Really? I’m 1/2 otaku but a full Code Geass whore 8P

    Can I ask what anime is that on your banner… It looks kinda good 🙂

  22. 22 5camp
    21 September 2008 at 12:14 am

    It’s from Code Geass and if you havn’t watched it yet then drop everything and go watch it

  23. 23 Loba
    21 September 2008 at 12:49 am

    Hm, train wreck. It’s a good drama for sure, that’s what code geass is. You want character drama, you should go watch macross frontier.

  24. 21 September 2008 at 1:26 pm

    Agree! Code Trainwreck. But Code Geass season 1 is waaaaaaaaaay better than R2. I won’t really go for Macross Frontier if I want character drama. Macross series are always good for their dogfights. If you want a really good anime, I reckon watching Honey & Clover, Denno Coil (great character devt, great plot build-up, good directing perspective), Cowboy Bebop (the best, by far though be mindful of several filler episodes) and yes, Code Geass. But not R2. But then again, you need R2 to finish the whole lot anyway.

  25. 21 September 2008 at 1:37 pm
