New Berserk anime project


This was announced yesterday and I held off on posting about it while awaiting more info. Well, now that we have a bit more, I feel obligated to talk about it, as Berserk is one of my favorite manga. When I heard that Studio 4C was working on it my heart soared, but in the very same sentence there are the words "full CG". Knowing what S4C's other full CG anime (First Squad) was like, this set off some alarms. Viewing the short TV promo (http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm12264010), was relieving as they seem to have improved upon their CG animation. I've still got a few worries about the studio choice, as 4C hasn't done any large series, and something as big as Berserk is demanding 52 episodes at least. Also no info about the soundtrack yet, let's hope they get Susumu Hirasawa on board again.

Victoria 2

Hail Canada (view full size)
Anyone else playing? I've always had a soft spot in my heart for very in-depth strategy games, and this one pushes all my right buttons. Even with some of the bugs it has, it's still near impossible to put down, and those will be patched out soon anyway. And with >100 different countries to play and numerous mods, the replay value is insane. I recommend checking it out if you can get past the steep learning curve.

I just spent over $200 on some PVC and I have no regrets


Are any of you guys figure fans? I started collecting about a year ago, and it is an addictive hobby. Nothing quite like the feeling of unboxing your first figure, smelling the PVC and plastic, and proceeding to look at its panties.

Fall 2010 Anime

Another Season, another chart.


Here is my quick and totally informed view

Star Driver - Manservice, mecha, and Bones. A match made in heaven.
Ironman - Westernshit, will probably suck
Panty and Stocking - Fuck yes Gainax, you are saving the industry
Yakumo - No opinion, probably won't watch
Kuragehime - Crossdressing and noitaminA, will watch
Bakuman - The manga is merely OK, and JC staff isn't very good.
Letter Bee - Didn't watch the first season
Togainu No Chi - No opinion, probably won't watch
Soredemo - Shaft and meidos, the best
Squidgirl - BEST GIRL EVER
Arakawa S2 - I loved season 1, hope 2 is more of the same
Samurai Girls - Queen's Blade clone, but with super stylish art. Will probably run out of budget 2 episodes in
TWGOK - For sure watch
Otome Youkai Zakuro - No opinion, probably won't watch
Yosuga No Sora - Twincest is bestcest
Index 2 - Hahahaha, no
OreImo - Hahahaha, no
Everything else on the list is garbage.
