Monthly Newsletter – June Edition

June 25, 2017, by , posted in Features

Hey team! This is just gonna be a short one because exams are killing me T_T I’ve been marathonning Yu-Gi-Oh GX instead of studying so I’m mildly screwed but that’s okay~

News and Events Banner

There’s been a few pieces of big news with regards to new releases! A third season of Shokugeki no Souma has been confirmed for Fall 2017 (so October) and, in the biggest news, a third season of Attack on Titan has been promised for 2018! Do we expect delays? Yes. Of course. It was like 4 f*cking years between the first two why would we ever take their word again. Y’see, this is why I have trust issues. In other interesting news, Sword Art Online – Ordinal Scale has outperformed both Pirates of the Caribbean AND Wonder Woman at the Italian box office. Italy has always has a thing for anime, it seems – they were one of few places that aired all 200 episodes of Sailor Moon, they religious dub just about every children’s anime that comes out… there’s a joke in there somewhere, maybe, but my brain is too fried to find it.

Nijimen has launched a poll asking their Twitter followers and other visitors to their site to pick their favourites out of this season. While the voting is definitely heavily biased (like… I’m having Crunchyroll Anime Awards flashbacks rn), the results aren’t terribly surprising. As of the time of publishing, the top three spots are taken with Attack on Titan at 99 votes, Oushitsu Kyoushi Haine at 122 votes and High School Star Musical at 142 votes. MY TRASHY MUSICAL CHILDREN ARE EN ROUTE TO DOMINATION! Ahem. Eromanga Sensei performed surprising well in this fujoshi-heavy demographic, garnering 35 votes, while steamy soft-porn x-reader-fanfic-gone-wild Room Mate ~One Room Side M~ flopped with a depressing 12 votes. I promise I tried to find less biased polls but they’re not out there yet!

Now for our upcoming events!

Monthly Newsletter: April Edition

April 24, 2017, by , posted in Blog

It’s finally StuVac and dear god did I need it! I’ve gotten far too sidetracked following all the new things from this season – with a season 2 of Starmyu and season 6 of Natsume Yuujinchou I have plenty of things to keep me busy. I definitely won’t be catching up over the break though, not with all these assignments :| I hope you guys have more fun than me!

The first PV for the No Game No Life: Zero movie has surfaced! The visuals look amazing, as you’d expect, but that’s about all I can tell you given my horrendous Japanese reading ability (or lack thereof). I like the look of this new robot girl and the white-haired guy, they’re both pretty cute :)) Given the massive dragon, Tet at a cafe and the lack of Sora and Shiro I’m gonna guess this is a prequel, but anyone who actually follows this closely probably already knew that. With a cinematic release on July 15, we won’t be seeing anything of this movie for a good 6 months or more :/

Now, I’ve always been more of a Digimon fan than a Pokemon fan – the games are so much richer! I love the branched evolution lines and the more complicated experience point dynamics. So, I’m excited to keep seeing more details about the Digimon Story:Cyber Sleuth games. We’ve had new designs released for some new characters; Mishima Erika is a genius hacker that can connect her consciousness with the internet (I think?) and Fei is a violenty sadistic leader of a cyberterrorism group. It sounds a little dark, but I like it that way! Granted, I don’t remember seeing the prequel to this game around anywhere so this could be hard to find.

Here’s a fun little poll that’s come around: a poll has been taken asking for the favourite onsen/hot spring scenes in anime. The results were split by gender, just for a little bit of extra information. The top-rated show from the guys was Full Metal Panic, closely followed by KonoSuba and Hyouka. And of course, no surprises, Yuri!!! on Ice took the top spot from the girls. It’s actually caused something of a stir – there was some very hot competition from Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu LOVE!, a show that is basically one big onsen scene. It was a narrow victory, but ultimately Victor’s abs won out, with Pretty Rhythm: Rainbow Live taking the 3rd spot. Does any have strong opinions on this? I personally am a big fan of the Natsume Yuujinchou onsen scene, mostly because it gave us this dubious quote:
