Hi all,

as usual, I post after I realize that this site is apparently rotting and I have some free time (=\). Back after a week long overseas CIP to Bintan, I was dead tired yesterday. I was supposed to write this before I left, but oh well. Here’s the short review on the anime, since I watched it what…a month ago, and details are a little hazy. May contain spoilers.

Unfortunately, after the last post, we got even busier. As I sit here in front of my desktop, tapping out these words, I’m wondering about the huge workload waiting for me, and my wondrous ability to procrastinate till such a pile even managed to form. I haven’t really dedicated my time to this site. I keep saying I’ll do it when I’m really free, but what ends up happening is I don’t ever finish my work, and slack in between my work a lot. =\ I got problems sorting out my time. need.to.take.control.of.mylifeman..

Anyway. Yes, I’m surprised we’re still holding out. Anyway, recently, I went back two two relatively old anime series. One of which is Last Exile. I can’t personally say it’s heavenly, but it’s really good. Its character development is really emphasized on, and it is this point which made it so good. Its plot on the other hand…can’t say that I really understood the ending.

We’ve all heard of the movie Rebuild of Evangelion. That’s old news, passed by in Japan a couple of months ago, shaking up the otaku scene there, but only tremors were felt over here.

All that changed when I flipped open the Today Paper and saw a review, giving it 2.5 stars (the fucking noob who reviewed it obviously doesn’t know he’s dealing with the Holy Grail here). So I made a date with a mate, who shall be known only as Pikachu and we set off to catch the grand opening.

During the past few weeks, we were buried under piles of events and things and whatnots that just happened to coincidentally coincide with each other. After being buried under that pile of junk we call life… Continue reading



[Triggs] Getting Your Girlfriend into Anime by Triggs
February 13, 2008, 2:06 pm
Filed under: Anime

Okay, here’s the deal see: Valentines’ Day is tomorrow so I decided to do a little something about romance. Many men will be forced, at some point, to part with their beloved anime/manga/loli stash by supreme order of their female companions. This can be avoided using proven game system/girlfriend social activities to gradually introduce otaku culture to your loved one and vice versa. You may not get her into Gundam 00, but she may end up watching some anime you both can enjoy.

Okay, i recently began watching Persona-trinity soul-. So far, episode 1-5 managed to capture my attention. (<3 the OP, it’s not bad =)) BTW, this is condensing 5 episodes into one review, and I’ll be selectively picking certain parts. Continue reading



[Triggs] Why did the Chicken Cross the Road? by Triggs

Filed under: Random

“Why did the chicken cross the road?” is one of the oldest and most famous riddles still in use in the English language. The most common answer is “To get to the other side.” When asked at the end of a series of other riddles, whose answers are clever, obscure, and tricky, this answer’s obviousness and straight-forwardness becomes part of the humor.

With the global phenomenon called the internet, we’ve seen our fair share of celebrities having their go at this widespread example of bad humor. Ever wondered what your favorite (or hated) anime characters would say if they were asked?
