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.

[Triggs] Getting Your Girlfriend into Anime by Triggs

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] Race to the White House: What Gundam are They? by Triggs

The U.S. presidential election has been described as “one of the most undemocratic in the world”, stemming from the fact that despite having 126 million people eligible to vote, it affects 6.6 billion people worldwide.

While desperately combing the web for information on such a topic for my homework assignment, I came across tj_han’s article on Gundam and dating http://www.riuva.com/?p=952. Inspired, I decided to borrow a few brainwaves and came up with this article (man I should turn this into a hobby). Being a stereotypical slacker, I’m focusing this article on two candidates from both the Democratic and Republican camps, both of which have either

[Triggs] Why Otakus Make Better Lovers by Triggs

If it looks similar to this one: http://www.riuva.com/?p=552 it’s because we were inspired by the same source. I only found out about the latter about one hour into typing this article. Still, if tj_han wants royalties I’d be more than willing to pay them.

This article contains potentially volatile reading material capable of starting a massive flame war. Should you choose to continue, please read with an open mind. If you are incapable of doing so (especially if you play rugby), kindly stop reading and go surf up some porn or Naruto.
