Hey small small audience of ours! I’d like to take a break from all those Lerxst-hates-anime posts and post something anime-related to probably the only show worth giving a shit about nowadays: Space Bros (See? I’m just like all those kooky elitist anime bloggers, liking only one show a season!). In one of the recent episodes, one of the groups of in-training astronauts must resort to making udon as their food supply has ran out by hungry hungry hippo Serika. For about 5 minutes or so, this anime showed me just how easy it was to make udon. Challenge accepted! All it really takes is just some flour, water, and some salt. No big deal, right? So I have tried making udon myself and took some pictures as I made it below. Let’s see how I do.

Ah yes, Sailor Moon. One of the greatest mahou shoujos in anime. For some reason, the execs at Toon Makers thought it would be a good idea to produce an Americanized Sailor Moon. Thankfully, it never really got off the ground. However, this 2 minute promo was made to show what it would’ve been life. As you could probably tell, it would’ve been an instant disaster. According to Comics Alliance “The idea behind the show seems to be that Serena and her Burger King Kids Club-Approved gang of school-chums would be filmed in live action as they got up to highly coordinated line-dances and Mayim Bialik cosplay, but when they actually transformed into their super-heroic alter-egos, the show would switch it up into animated action. As much as that sort of defeats the purpose of doing a live-action show, it is a pretty interesting take on things — especially considering what the plan was for the action.”
See, this is why westernizing anime doesn’t work. Isn’t that right, EVOLUTION?!

For the next 9 days, I am on Spring break time. And I am going to make sure I fill all that time with as much anime as I possibly can. Last year for Spring break I told myself I would start and finish at least two anime. I kind of completed that task by starting and finishing Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and the first season of K-ON! Well this year is going to be a little different. This time around I will be having an ANIME MOVIE EXTRAVAGANZA. Basically I’ll just be watching as many anime movies for the next week as I possibly can (inbetween watching the airing shows and playing Mass Effect 3). So let me give you a run down of what I have lined up already for the next week.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE!! I hope you are spending it with the one you love most. And if you aren’t, then have fun spending another day alone like I am. But hey, at least you don’t have to waste all your money away buying chocolates filled with toothpaste, roses that are going to die within a week, and a frilly card that plays Barry White music that your significant other is just going to throw away the next day. But I’m not here to tell you how you aren’t going to get any today. I’m here to spotlight some of my favorite couples in anime, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day.
