Sukitte Ii na yo Episode 1- Shoujos are all the same

So I’m going to jump on the weekly anime blogging bandwagon. And what better way for me to start off than by blogging about a show in the genre that is practically my bread and butter: shoujo romances.

I guess this is the part of the post where I say something quirky or ironic to describe this episode of the show and give a general feel of how I felt about it, right? Is that how this works? Well, I must say there was a lack of sparkles/bubbles/flowers in this first episode than what I’m used to in other shoujos I’ve been exposed to. That was literally the only sparkle I saw the entire first episode. Get with the game Sukitte Ii na yo.

Anime Weekend Atlanta 2012 Preview

Yup. It’s that time of the year once again. This Friday I will be attending Anime Weekend Atlanta once again. There will be many new faces to meet this year and also some returning ones as well. And let’s not forget the endless number of panels to attend, anime screenings to watch, merchandise to buy, cosplayers to photograph, and everything else in between. After printing off 20 pages worth of stuff to do at this year’s AWA, I have formulated a very tight schedule that I will try oh so hard to attend to. So here is my run down of all that I will be doing at this year’s AWA.

A look at The Idolm@ster or ARE YOU READY?!? I’M LADY!!!!

I remember not giving a single fuck about this show when it first aired during Summer 2011. I saw it on the early Summer 2011 charts and thought to myself “The Idolm@ster? Someone is making an anime about that dumb Xbox 360 game? Fuck, I’m not watching that shit”. Well fast forward a year later and I decide to give the show a shot due to my fellow aniblogger friends pestering me , forcing me, recommend that I at least try it out. So I did. And I ended up regretting not watching this show to begin with. I haven’t had this much fun watching an anime since I watched Baccano! for the first time. So I’m going to run down all the things I loved about this show (which was practically everything).

Makin’ Space Udon with Dave!

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.
