I’ve been egging(?) to tell someone about this rather interesting incident that occurred with 3 of our writers, Cyborg, Free and myself.
All three of us had to go for chinese remedials (yes we suck at our mother tongue) and managed to get ourselves into the same remedial class. Not interesting I know, hang a moment.
At long last, we have an anime illustrated by Tony Taka which isn’t Hentai! I’ve seen a couple of his works, if not, a whole lot of them. I liked how each of every one of them looked, especially the female characters that look ever so well. I’ve seen a couple of his *ehem* animation works and it looked pretty nice to watch as well, so I backed this anime ever since it was set to be animated and televised. One thing that I find in particular : it was adapted from the visual novel so this is another one of my posts which are again, based on visual novels, despite not even playing it. Some of the visual novels have turned out to be a hit when they are animated, so why not this one as well? Read the rest of this entry
I’ve been really stumped lately from over thinking about my academics and with the ani-blogging tourney coming out and seeing a tweet on twitter, I guess doing this will be fun. Like the title says, I will be compiling/boring you about the (super)natural abilities of the Saki girls, you know, whenever you see lightning sparkle from someone’s eye or hand, you know sh*t is going down. Hope you enjoy this little compilation ad that it makes a good read.
Through the AniBlog Tourney, we have managed to gleam huge amounts of new ideas. The criticisms offered forth also gave us ideas on various methods to improve the blog as well as areas that could use significant improvements. It was a very educational journey and although we’re certainly out of it, we shall return next year, hopefully stronger than now!
The first big change is in the name of the blog. I think it’s pretty clear that this is no longer Interests of a Psychopath but Otaku Panorama. It was a name we thought of, meaning us presenting our views on the Otaku media culture. Posh stuff. However, the old blog name I’ve preserved for so long will not disappear! It has been saved for another of our “grand” changes. Read the rest of this entry
Why hello there new readers. I’m assuming you clicked on the link of out blog and was teleported here by the magics of the Internet.
Either way, you’re here now so why not enjoy your time looking through our fine selection of wares. Some might be poorly crafted (like my first 10 or so posts) but they all look good on a glance (thank you Imageboards and my addiction to browsing them).
Once again, this is another one of those post I have hoarded up for when I reach a dry spell. But this one could be pretty interesting (I hope).
The reason behind this post is simple enough. A couple of months back, I read a manga called GirlXGirlXBoy. I’m not sure if it’s popular or well-known but I definitely liked it. And a couple of weeks ago, another manga I was reading, Kimo Koi Limit, ended. And these two manga have 1 thing in common (well, 2 actually. They’re both generally Yuri). They both had a “third wheel” character that aided the progress of the main couple’s relationship. And I have always pitied this one poor person.
For this season, I have only decided to pick up 4 shows so it’s goes without saying that the anticipation for them is really high. @fkeroge’s post on Fate/Zero sums up my thoughts on Fate/Zero pretty well and I might be writing a post on Jormungand soon. But today’s post would be on Tasogare Otome X Amensia.
Out of the 4 selected anime this season, I’ve read the manga for 2 of them. I recently read Jormungand to it’s latest volume and it’s just non-stop excitement and just awesome action scenes. The other I’ve read was Tasogare Otome X Amnesia and I’m still undecided which I enjoyed more. But whilst Jormungand appealed more to my feral side that screams “LET’S KILL EVERYONE WITH AN ASSAULT RIFLE!!!!!!!”, Tasogare appealed more to my logical brain due to it’s theme of mystery and also a hint of controversy.
Since the anime I have been waiting for the most, why not do a first impression about it so I can expose all of you people to my crazy and insane (those two have the same meaning) fanboyism. So here you go, impressions of Saki: Achiga-hen – Episode of Side-A.
After watching the first Saki, I got into the whole mahjong thing and have been playing online mahjong for quite a bit so I can safely say that I (somewhat) know what on earth I am talking about. So enough of my bull-crap… on to the impressions.
Out of all the animes in the spring season list, Accel world caught my eye because, obviously of this girl right here. Not to mention that the plot blurb made it seem quite promising.
For the benefit of those who don’t know, Accel World is about this guy, Haru, who is the typical loser in school with a flair for gaming, even setting the global high scores for games. One day, he is approached by Black Snow, the most popular girl in school and model student, probably also a model who gives him an ability that practically stops time. In order to continue using the ability, Haru must beat others in simulated fights where players turn into their avatars. This all takes place in a world where everybody has a device linked with their brain that allows them to have a personal virtual computer.
Sounds weird? Well it is.
Hey! Guess what? I’m actually still alive! After being cooped up for so long and having seen quite a bit of the spring season, I asked the other writers if we could do a wrap-up of Winter and voice our opinions of the shows we watched.
And contrary to the usual thing about Winter being cold, ours was as hot as… hmm… Ririchiyo in stockings? If you have not noticed, I’m a very lenient rater so my rating for anime will seem rather high, but I look at it from a really wide perspective. How much I liked and enjoyed the show xD てへぺろ （･ω＜） The other writers will be adding opinions too so pardon the really random scores.
