What happens when you cross a considerable amount of sugar, endless boredom and an exciting episode of anime?
A F******G LIVE COMMENTARY OF SAID ANIME BITCHES.
I LIVE COMMENTATE OVER EPISODE 1 OF VIVIDRED OPEATION.
WHY? BECAUSE I GOT SO WORKED UP AND EXCITED BECAUSE I HAD SO MUCH FUN MOCKING IT I JUST HAD TO RECORD IT. F**K YEAH.
I talk about Angst in fiction and I recommend a few of my favourite angsty yuri manga
Yeah, not much else happens. I whine about angsty whining and I talk about Yuri passionately. Business as usual
Why are you still reading this. Just watch the f******g video.
P.S This is also my 100th post on my blog. Yay me! I’m just going to go cry in a corner now. Yeah, bye
I know that none of the writers here on Otaku Panorama has posted jack shit in ages. That’s simply because 4/5 of us are 16 and guess what, exams are more of a bitch than an ant bite on the penis. HOWEVER, 3 of us have found time in our pseudo post-exam pre-”O” levels period to head down to a little anime convention today.
Today, Selcouth, SleepyNoYume and I went down to A..C.M.E to meet some Twitter friends and to enjoy our time after a gruelling 2 week long Preliminary Exam. A.C.M.E is an abbreviation for A Certain Magical Event (No prizes for the original inspiration for the name but you might get a cookie!) and unlike AFA, it’s really, really small, which is both good and bad.
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).
Thanks to desperate persuasion by SleepyNoYume and LessThanFree, compounded by extreme boredom on Saturday night, I began watching Haiyore Nyaruko-san. Personally, I was already prejudiced against this anime. The blurb doesn’t exactly put it in a good light. As a side note, the basis for both (Sleepy and Free) argument why I should watch this was “You’ll love it! There’s a DFC redheaded twintails girl that’s into Yuri!” It’s not word for word but that’s the general idea. To be honest, that was only enough to pique my interest but not enough to convince me to watch it.
But alas, the power of boredom on a weekend night. I torrented the first 3 eps and watched them over a nice big bowl of Japanese curry (Which was bloody excellent. My mum’s a great cook ;D).
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.
Sooo, for those that managed to catch my April’s Fool joke previously, ha! I now present to you the real post.
I’m joking about the title of course. Well….not that much. I’ve been intending to write this post for such a long time now. Pretty much ever since I got into Yuri and people (who know about my anime watching/manga reading habits) asking me why I loved it, I’ve been intending to write this.
First of all, I should give a short introduction of sorts on how I even got into Yuri. And actually, this is the exact same story on how I discovered the wonders of 2D since I found that out through Yuri. So yeah, Yuri is rather important to me. (That sounds rather…strange…)
Once again, after a long wait, I bring you the next installment in my short story series, Forbidden Lilies. My usual editor has been hard-pressed to find the inspiration to do editing recently so this was edited by none other than LessThanFree. Give him a round of applause folks. Either way, enjoy the story!!!
Forbidden Lilies Part 5: At Odds
Aria sighed and put down her stylus before pushing the drawing tablet away. She groaned as she rubbed her eyes. A quick glance at the clock told her that it was 2.35am in the morning. She had stayed up the whole night trying to finish a commissioned artwork for her client’s website. It was pity she could not finish it today but she would not have been able to produce a quality product otherwise. Aria yawned and stretched as she continued to draw, feeling lethargic. “I’ll complete it tomorrow then!” she said to herself as she swiveled her chair around. Aria stood up and started to make her way towards the bathroom in her apartment when a movement from the bed caught her eye. Niko had turned over in her sleep and her crimson hair was in a fan around her head on the pillow.
