It's time to watch anime! Don't know how it's done... well, then watch this tutorial on "How to watch anime." Of course it's going to be different for everyone, so comment and let us know how you prefer to watch your anime.
It's been a while since I've posted anything LPS, so here is a nice image post for everyone. Of course, if this is what's in a cupcake, then I'll have to be more careful when I eat one from now on. Personally I think a pepper-filled cupcake would be a little too good, so maybe we should dial down the fun just a tad on that one.
Anyway, for those of you that have recently come here from Pet Shop Daily, these image posts are nothing new; just more of what you have come to love.
For everyone that is new to this, these image posts are our fan-artists corner, where I scour the internet for the best art that the fandom has to offer, and I show it off here.
I do something similar with anime images, but this is for the LPS fandom; so if being a Pet Shopper isn't your thing, then skip this one. Otherwise, enjoy the art.
Well it took me longer than I originally wanted, but I was finally able to finish watching, Girls Bravo. And while it wasn't exactly what I was expecting, it was certainly an anime that made a definite impression on me.
One of the first things that I noticed right away is that even for a harem comedy, this show had the nudity. And not just the occasional boobie-shot here and there; it had naked flesh at almost every turn. Full frontal flesh at that. Granted, there was only doll-like depictions of the nethers, it nevertheless left nothing to the imagination.
Of course, this is probably where most first time viewers of the show may stop, and reflect on only this particular aspect of it, but in truth, this is not all that the show is about, or all that it's intended to be.
Girls Bravo is a show based on the shonen manga series by writer and illustrator, Mario Kaneda. The series ran in Shonen Ace from 2000 - 2005, and in 2006 was animated by AIC Spirits and directed by Ei Aoki.
As a fan of lots of geekdom stuff—anime, manga, video games, etc,—I've experienced my fair share of bullying. Heck, seventh grade has been purged from my memory forever, but for a child nine years old to endure bullying, and the catalyst to be My Little Pony (a show that expresses friendship, and a fandom that promotes tolerance) this is enough to make my blood boil.
I don't blame the children for the bullying at this age so much as I blame the children's parents. I also blame the school's principle for taking a pussyfied highroad and eliminating the "distraction" that was the catalyst for the bullying rather than have the balls to throw a few students out on their ass for a few weeks in suspension. Let a few failing grades float their way to their parents and then THEN we'll see how bullying is tolerated.
Having spent some of the past few months in a sort of anime-funk, I crawled out of my mountain stronghold and found that Ghost in the Shell had gotten something of a reboot. Now, I feel differently about most reboots; some I loath and wish were smashed in the head, and some I don't bother concerning myself over. But, for some reason when I learned of the existence of Ghost in the Shell Arise, I was not outraged, and crying for someone to exact fan-boy justice.
For all intents, I'm not officially calling GitSA a full fledged reboot; sort of a re-imagining and re-mix. naturally, Production IG is handling the new four-episode OVAs, and like the masterful predecessors before, this new iteration of GitS is just as cerebral.
The question I'm probably going to be asked is, "Does GitS deserve a remake?"
Rumors about my untimely death have been exaggerated, as have been rumors about the death of this site, or any of the awesome Otaku/Geek junk we have been doing.
The truth about my recent departure is somewhat long and complicated but I'll try to give you the short version, if that is possible.
In the past near year that I've been AFK from WO, I have managed to self-publish two novels under the name, David Devere... if anyone is at all interested; and I've attempted to run a profitable secondary site for the fans of the HUB's Littlest Pet Shop series. Unfortunately, the complications of managing two full-time sites, combined with real life, and being a full-time novelist are more than us mere mortals should ever have to endure.
So, I am probably going to do what most people would find crazy, insane, and disturbing. I am going to merge most of this crap into one place. Here!
That's right. While making posts about anime and manga, I will be dragging along my inter…
