It’s cool people remember Capitaine Flam.
The date actually passed months ago, it’s around May. Usually that’s during my exam period so I never have the time to actually write something. This year I actually had time, so I wanted to write a really long post full of random things, but in the end I gave up on it. Maybe I’ll recuperate some parts of the draft like the stuff on games, anime and manga and make individual posts.
I haven’t posted about PriPara or anything recently because I have internet problems. I admit though, seeing how the show is only funny every 7 episodes or so, I’m not that in a hurry to watch it. For Pretty Rhythm stuff, I’m still planning to translate more of the guidebooks. I should finish translating the PRASS guidebook interviews before the end of 2015 if God wills it.
Also they announced a new OTR album to be released on December 23rd, and blurays for DMF. Box 1 is October 16th. Box 2 is December 18th. DMF will probably sell even less than the AD blurays, while RL is the most popular season in Japan, so they’ll definitely do blurays for RL too. The PriPara movie got released on bd/dvd, so we can finally see the Pretty Rhythm parts in it. Haven’t seen it yet myself.
If you ever checked my pictures in old Pretty Rhythm posts, you may have noticed how I tag them prad+number. Back when Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream was airing, when I saved pics related to it, I’d tag them “prad”, which is the show’s initials. When Dear My Future started, I started tagging things related to it as “prad2”. Etc. Basically “prad” became my general tag for anything Pretty Rhythm related. It’s much easier to use the search function that way. So I name files that way:
prad= Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream
prad2= Dear My Future
prad3= Rainbow Live
prad4= All Star Selection and movie 1
One more thing. I used to have an obsolete version of MPC, and I couldn’t take screenshots with it. So all my screencaps in old Pretty Rhythm posts are copypasted on paint, and are in 1080p instead of the show’s actual 720p. I’m warning you in case you’re a meticulous about screencaps person who feels like wasting hours of your life deleting pictures you saved from my blog and taking them again at the correct resolution. I updated MPC when PriPara started so starting PriPara posts, the screencaps are the in the show’s actual resolution.
There should be an official summary of the G Reco Gundam Café event from last month soon. I like G Reco, so when I heard about it last month, I just translated what I found so I can read it and keep it. Then I thought I’d be a waste to keep it for myself and decided to post it here too. Basically the same reasoning that’s behind my Pretty Rhythm related translations. I’m not doing it for you or anything. Moreover, I thought big news site like ANN would post about the event right away too. ANN still haven’t said anything about it. If I knew I’d be the only person who would post about the event in English, and get into a spotlight, I wouldn’t have posted about it. It’s incredible how mad some people got about G Reco being after Turn A. It’s like they got told Tomino both killed their cat and ate their fries when they were a kid. It’s disheartening to see people get so worked up over it.
Also Eid Mubarak.
