Macross Frontier Playstation Home Concert, In Photos

The Macross Frontier soundtrack is hands down my favorite original anime soundtrack of all time. So I found myself motivated enough to somehow be awake around the crack of dawn (or 8:00 pm Japan time) and logged into the Japanese edition o...

Wow. The Summer anime season has kind of caught me off guard with how many shows have piqued my interest and I have no idea how I'm going to keep up. I'm already trying to follow three shows carrying on from Spring (Hanasaku Iroha, Nichijou...

Miku Invasion 2011: The Diva Steps Up Her Game

With VIZ Media announcing their U.S. license for all things Hatsune Miku, the gate is officially open for a full-scale Miku invasion. The big question now is what exactly are they going to license? VIZ themselves are mostly known for thei...

 
 
 

Monthly Musing: Prologue to a Long Summer

The heat felt unbearable as I shuffled along the sidewalk. My body was bruised and beaten and every step pained me as my worn soles struck the concrete. None of that mattered now. By this time tomorrow I'd be on a beach half way around t...

 
 
 

Oreimo "True Route" Final Impressions

What happens when you take the imouto out of Oreimo? Well that's pretty much what we find out in the handful of web-only episodes that make up the "True" ending of the series. I personally never cared much for alternate endings, but in th...

 
 
 

Miku Invasion 2011: Two Albums We Need Now

As Hatsune Miku begins her invasion of the western world, I feel like something is missing. If you've only heard one vocaloid song, chances are it's featured on either livetune's Re:Package or supercell's self-titled debut. Both albums pl...

To Aru Majutsu no Index (PSP) Review

I don't usually think of myself as the fan boy type, but when I saw there was a To aru Majutsu no Index fighting game coming for PSP bundled with a Mikoto Misaka figma I was SOLD no questions asked, pre-ordered instantly. As crazy as it is...

 
 
 

Best Place to Visit: Academy City

Seeing this month's Musing topic made me remember my days working PR for Academy City. Naturally it involved a lot of body disposal and cover-ups, but there was one time they actually let me write a press release. Yeahhhh I got fired from...

 
 
 

Oreimo Final Impressions

OK Oreimo, you got me. You made the right choices, loaded a quick save when necessary, and finally got my Good Ending.First, I wouldn't go near you when I thought you were another "wincest" show. You dodged that one. Later, I rolled my e...

 
 
 

Hulu Plus Is Making Me Sad - a review for anime fans

I really like Hulu. They have the handful of TV shows I actually watch, and to my surprise the anime selection has filled in nicely. I'm sure many of you will sympathize after years of expensive and hard to find VHS and DVD hunting, watch...

 
 
 

NYAF vs. NYCC

First of all, I would like to apologize for my lack of pictures, I didn't really end up with any worth posting. So I will try and turn my laziness into a poor metaphor for my initial impression of the New York Anime Festival:Um, where was ...
