Monthly Archives: June 2012
As most of you know, the animes of the spring season are ending within the week. Some of the shows the seemed good at the start turned out to be a disappointment and others were diamonds in the rough. I didn’t watch all the anime this season so I apologize if I left out any that you would have liked me to talk about.
I usually don’t do this kind of thing, but I felt like I needed to make up for the hole that SleepyYume left when he well… Left. So here’s my (first) wrap-up post:
As promised, we’ve kept our word in bringing to you what’s in store for July, or should I say, Summer 2012! Over the past few weeks, we have noticed several changes compared to my previous post on this. This time, we see more anime being brought into the light, and boy am I happy to see several romance anime in the summer : a good birthday present for me, I guess!
For the delight of some of you Yuri Yuri fans out there, July will see the second season of Yuru Yuri. To be honest, I’ve never seen the prequel but I’ll be hoping to have a look if I do have the time.
Also after a few changes in the charts, we now see more of J.C. Staff productions as well as P.A. Works, known for the anime “Another” and “Hanasaku Iroha”. Don’t worry guys, this one isn’t gore. Instead, it looks even better than “Hanasaku Iroha”. Let’s see how this one fares.
Apart from those changes in which I highlighted the rest are pretty much confirmed from the previous version, just that we know now which anime is set to air in July and the following month after that.
Well, I would love to post the whole bit of the chart here but unfortunately, it’s too big to fit the whole page here so this will have to suffice. http://i.minus.com/ib2htiqSkcalri.jpg
Anyway, have a good day and here’s to a great summer season!
On the day I write this post, I’ve watched both the endings of Legend of Korra and Fate Zero in the course of 2 hours. Knowing myself when it comes to finales, this was a f*****g stupid idea but I went ahead with it anyway.
So today’s post, whenever the hell this finally goes up, would be about my impressions to both of the finales of these wonderful shows I enjoyed. There’s going to be a lot of imcomprehensible text in the next 5 or 6 paragraphs so beware!
And if you’re too stupid to realize, there will be spoilers to both Fate Zero Season 2 and Avatar: Legend of Korra.
I suppose first of all, I have to explain the title of this post so as to clear up the confusion that’s no doubt present.
This is the start of a series of posts by me, CyborgCommunist, on dark topics, gleamed from various anime or manga. These post generally about rather depressing topics hence the name, the Sad Post Series. An underwhelming name but hey, I’ve got to make it seem ridiculous enough to draw in readers.
As the first part of the series, this post would be about Dark Doujins, mostly of the Romance genre (be it Straight or Yuri). And it’s “dark” as in having macabre/depressing topics albeit many of the manga/oneshots/doujin (oh yeah, it’s all about the printed works) have a silver lining in their plot. So by dark I’m not referring to depraved hentai doujins. Just those with generally “sad” outlooks (Not meaning that Hentai won’t be mentioned though. I just might).
It is as the title suggests. EGOIST, the fictional band featured in Guilty Crown is actually getting a debut album with a helping hand from none other than Supercell, the band which shot straight to fame and eventually became a personal favorite of mine.
Now I’m sure some of you know about the Euro 2012 which has just started last week. And with live matches being telecasted, there’s bound to have anime shows having breaks due to that. With regards to that, at least 3 anime are not broadcasted this week : Acchi Kocchi, Eureka Seven AO and Sankarea. Read the rest of this entry
I’ve recently mined out a huge amount of post ideas after my really prolonged dry spell and I have begun writing them. But alas, I hit a snag where finding the reference materials and pictures was really hard to do due to the sheer quantity of stuff I had to go through to find the exact one I need. However, I did hit upon the idea this post will be about (In the shower, weirdly enough. I normally get these flashes of “genius” just as I’m about to sleep). So for today, as a sort of a filler and a post just to entertain all (For I assure you, you will be entertained), this is a post about ALLLLLLLLL me fetishes.
Oh yeah, you guys and girls f******g read that right. My fetishes and their origins. Time to descend down the dark, unlit passageways of CyborgCommunist’s mind to reach that one room with the huge words “FETISHES” plastered on the door.
Well, this is a start, my first ever manga review! Pretty excited to be doing this, and I’m hoping that it’ll turn out well. Without further ado, let’s begin with how the story’s panning out so far! Read the rest of this entry
For those of you who do follow me on twitter to know about my ongoings, in the face of the great amount of pressure from my examinations, I have gave up rights to my computer and in doing so, disallowed myself from writing on the blog.
Seeing that I will not be able to post up posts which have sufficient quality (in my opinion) I have decided to officially announce my retirement from OP. It had been a fun 6 months over here and I know that the blog will definitely live and prosper. So for now, I bid you guys farewell.
*There are no major spoilers in this post so feel free to read if you have not watched it.*
The K-On movie has been long anticipated since it’s release last December and it was due to a stroke of luck that I was able to view it subbed and all (legally).
The K-On movie picks up straight from where the special episode left off; Yui, Mio, Ritsu and Mugi have gotten passports and are graduating high school soon. The four have to start thinking about their future while dealing with the fact that Houkago Tea Time will be separated. They decide to go on a graduation trip with Azusa to London, England. Their trip to England was intended to be for sightseeing, but somehow the five of them ended up performing. Some content overlaps with the last episode of K-On season 2 after the girls come back from England.
So does the Light Music Club’s field trip live up to the hype?
