The LLAMAs 2007

January 9, 2008

That’s right, the LLAMAs are back again. I meant to post them before the New Year hit, but that’s a different story entirely. Since I promised myself this would be the first post of the year, that’s the reason that I haven’t been speaking up otherwise. As a reminder to those of you who are knew, this very hand acronym stands for nothing else but the (L)azy (L)ikkun (A)wesome (M)usic (A)wards. Mostly because I’d choose doing crappy awards over the best music of the year rather than the best anime.

Likkun is Bored: The Foreign Music Exchange

November 18, 2007

It’s rather apparent that fans of anime and the like seem to draw the short end of the stick. Nowadays, one would see that even the video game geeks can be held in higher esteem. Though, with how some fans behave, it’s obvious as to why the certain degree of mistreatment most receive. Though there is one thing I do find interesting and that lies within the realm of music. It’s not a surprise for many to have a bit of music in Japanese on a CD, MP3 player of some sort. But are they drawing the short end of the stick in even as something as simple as music?

Happy Halloween!

November 1, 2007

Wow, it’s been terribly difficult to post nowadays. I’d really die to write an actual article had I the time. But here’s a special Halloween gift nonetheless.

So aside from this, it wasn’t my real idea of what I wanted to carve. I had actually planned for something more amazing but forgot it in all my scrambling before the holiday. If you’ve never done anything like this, it’s really not that amazing. Especially a design like this which took me nothing but a couple of hours, which was mostly because I had crappy tools to work with this year. Some rejected ideas you say?

Kudo (Little Busters!), Ahiru (Moetan), Mimolette (GAII), Nano-Nano (GAII), Neuro’s simple-minded look (Neuro), Tomikate (Higurashi), Hanyuu (Higurashi) Nice Boat (School Days), Kotonoha (School Days), Tsukasa simple-minded look (Lucky Star), Kagami (Lucky Star), Misao (Lucky Star), Akira (Lucky Star), SOS-dan Silhouette (SHnY), Haruhi + Giant H ala Hare Hare Yukai (SHnY).

Most of these were rejected because I had about 3 hours until Halloween started. That or I really didn’t like where the design was going.

When I say Lucky, you say Star. Pt.2

September 18, 2007

So after a very long time of NOT thinking like an educated individual, I decided to return to the fray. Now that classes are back in, I am given a lot of time to think. This means more entries, and I hope to be analyzing a few shows this Fall since a lot of them I find that I may really enjoy talking about. *coughneurocough*

But as the title leads you to think, this is part two of my two part look at Lucky Star. In the first, I talked about how Lucky Star (at the first episode) was being underplayed for what it really was by viewers. Now, I somehow find it necessary to mention how it has become overplayed for what it really is by it’s viewers. Confused yet? I know I am.

Maybe screaming Akira again would help? AKIIIIIIIIIIRAAAAAAA

Likkun is Bored: This week on HiguKai…

August 3, 2007


Tactical prowess like you’ve NEVER seen before…

I’ll be making these things all week methinks. I have to succumb to the VIPPER inside of me every once in awhile but I won’t take it so far to make a MAD. Not yet…

Anime Expo: Day 2 Report

August 1, 2007

It’s been a long while since Anime Expo happened, yet I’m still trying to lay down my report on it. Not like anybody there really forgot what happened anyway. Now that you’ve read everybody else’s opinions on the subject you can compare them all to mine. And I KNOW you love to do that. Plus there’s still much fun to be had right?

Oh, and prepare for a really long winded rant about the SOS-dan concert. One like you may have never seen before.

Moetan – Episode 3 Review (Not Really)

July 27, 2007

You know I wouldn’t be me without half-assing at least one episode, right? Anyhow, I had all the reason to skip this episode. I’m not much one to come up with good jokes for fanservice episodes. I mean, all you can really think about is, “What the hell am I watching and why am I watching it?” The fact it’s a beach episode takes it to the next level. All great fanservice happens at the beach or in a hot spring. This happens to include a bit of both (okay so it’s a bath but it’s the same idea).

Conclusion: Average

A little of this and a little of that. I can’t completely bash the episode, but I’ve gone through enough fanservice that I won’t be blinded by it. Next week sounds like it’ll have more substance (whatever that means) but you never know what could happen. I definitely expected a total fanservice episode in this series, I just didn’t see it happening so soon.

Moetan – Episode 2 Review

July 17, 2007

Well, it’s time for some more Moetan. This is seriously becoming the show for me right now. While I’m looking forward to the better arcs of Higurashi, Moetan is the one show I’m looking forward to right now. Anyhow, that and listening to Minoru sing more songs at the end of Lucky Star.

I want a transforming ahoge too.

Anime Expo: Day 1 Report

July 12, 2007

A little late sorry but I needed much recovery time and I  didn’t have too much internet access where I was. Live with it.

So, the first day of AX was probably the most interesting in terms of what happened. Mostly because it included both exciting panels, one being the Galaxy Angel and the other being the SOS-Dan. So if either of those things interest you or you like listening to convention nonsense, then this day might be for you.
