Anime season previews

Pic by Doomfest NSFW

The Fall anime season gonna start soon.Of course, you can get a rough estimate from the information, the original material if there’s one, the staff (The FULL staff, not only the director )etc but they stay estimates, first impressions. You can’t know the quality of a show until it aired and you’ve seen it for yourself. Even the upcoming Fate/Zero,  surely looks totally awesome but, maybe it will suck. The possibility is never 0%.

It amaze me so much when someone say “this show is crap/BEST SHOW OF THE SEASON” after seeing one or two episodes, are they wizards? Of course I’m not saying first impressions (or recommendations if the show aired already) are always wrong, but they’re still first impressions. (As for recommendations, everyone got different tastes). I’m not saying Season Previews are wrong, I’m just saying people should shut their mouth if they don’t know what they’re talking about. A simple rule of life.

Artist: めたるか

By めたるか

I always wanted to do posts about artists I like but I don’t have Choux’s skills. So I thought I’d bet on originality. Never thought I’d start with this guy. Guess it’s because he doesn’t need much effort. And yes I’d rather just copy pasta his/her name than trust Googletrans as I don’t read moonrunes.

You know that K-on! tourist town in Japan which got K-on! furniture everywhere, including funny looking signboards? If not go read this. (The signboards in question are featured in the 2nd part of the article).

Well this artist here draws characters the same way. I actually wonder if he’s the one who designed the signs in the first place or if he’s just imitating them.

Does snacks counts as banana???

One of my rolling wallpapers, by this person

“Does snacks count as banana?” Just saw this sentence in Bakatest 2 ep2.
The original sentence is of course  “Does bananas counts as snacks?” But Aki got it wrong since he’s an idiot.
I first heard it in Harvest Moon Friends of Mineral Town. I think it’s a cultural Japanese joke from when kids going on school trips can’t bring more than ~300yen worth of snack, and there’s always one kid asking if banana/fruit counts as snacks. The others kids usually come up with ideas to go around the rule, most of the time one of them makes snacks himself so they were technically free, thus breaking the 300yen limit.

Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria

Go on and read that Light Novel called Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria. Written by Eiji Mikage and illustrated by Tetsuo(nsfw). Story is about Kazuki, a high school student who lives an, quoting him, “everyday life”. Until one day where he is involved with a mysterious person who asks him whether he would like a “box” that would grant him any wish. The next day at school a transfer student named Aya Otonashi join, his class. She introduces herself’ (hence my avatar) and she finishes bluntly by saying “Kazuki Hoshino, I’m here to break you.” .

Can’t say any much more to not spoil things.  It’s slice of life, well it can seem like so, I don’t know how to explain it but it’s more like a mystery with dark elements and bizarre things, nothing as scary as Chaos:Head or other stuff though. The story can be quite confusing at first(like every other light novel) but the complexity is what I love about it. I don’t think I read a story similar to it ever in both originality and quality.
The 4 released volumes for now are fully translated in English thanks to EusthEnoptEron and Kadi so you should really check it out at Baka Tsuki.

Talking about this was one of the main reasons for making this blog since I really love it. I want it to be a little more known. And of course Maria is my waifu etc. I gotta talk about it everywhere.
