Spring 2014 Anime Chart v3

You know the drill, it’s time for another season of anime. Once again thanks to Zana at Neregate for the season’s chart.

The coming season has quite a lot of titles and it took me quite some time to quickly go through all of them. Thank goodness I don’t really have any particular titles that I’m really looking forward to, so this round, all of the selected titles are based on my first impression from the synopsis and PV alone. Trust me, I’ve yet even did any research on them prior to the writing of this article.

Comic Fiesta 2013


After much delay, the photos of Comic Fiesta 2013 is finally ready to be shared. I seriously need to keep up my pace! By the way, if you’re not aware of what Comic Fiesta, it is actually Malaysia’s largest and longest running ACG event.

Once again, I’m invited for the event as a media blogger in exchange for my post-holocaust report which you’re reading right now. While I hope to cover every little details over here, but that proves to be a challenge for me given that I’ve taken so much time for just going through that little number of photos. Anyway, let’s read on for my report on the CF2013.

First Impression: Ikoku Meiro no Croisee

[IB] Ikoku Meiro no Croisée - 01v2 [720p] [C24590BF].mkv_snapshot_01.56_[2013.11.28_22.25.30]

It’s been a while since I last wrote anything about anime or whatsoever.. Not because I’m losing passion in anime or writing, just that I choose to spend my free time on either watching anime or other things.. Perhaps one would understand better when 1/3 of his 24 hour is already spent on his work.

Anyway, I recently started watching Ikoku Meiro after having it on my HDD for about 2 years lol.. I’m still figuring ways to speed up my anime watching speed, so that I could keep up with my backlogs.

Music Monday – Bad Apple!! by Nomico

Bad Apple!!, created by ZUN in 1998, was originally included in the soundtrack of the 4th Touhou Project game – Lotus Land Story. Back then the soundtrack was electronically composed, without vocals, until Masayoshi Minoshima remixed the tune, featuring Nomico’s vocal and released it in an album called Lovelight.

The song went viral after Nico Nico Douga user Anira released the PV with 3D moving models and silhouette shadow art.

I have to say that this mesmerizing PV contains the artistic DNA from various talented peeps.
