White Day! (with bonus recipe!)

March 8, 2015, by , posted in Blog

Valentine’s Day is extremely prominent in anime and valentines day episodes pretty much follow a set progression.

  1. Attempt to make chocolate. Said attempt may be inedible.
  2. Agonize about the giving of chocolate.  This may be because said attempt was inedible.
  3. Through a series of contrivances, somehow manage to give chocolate to object of affections.
  4. Hopefully win the heart of senpai.

It’s a pretty common pattern and we’re all familiar with it. However, are you just as familiar with the counterpart of Valentine’s Day – White Day?

White Day is on March 14. It’s a time for people to return the favor if they’ve received chocolates on Valentine’s Day. This is usually done with candy though other gifts can be given! Is it a blatant corporate holiday? Why yes it is!

If you’ve happened to receive chocolates for Valentines Day, why not repay the favor? Click the read more for an easy recipe you can make yourself (and for Valentine’s Day while we’re at it).

Bad Anime Spotlight – The Cosmopolitan Prayers

May 30, 2014, by , posted in Blog

I said I’ll try to post here on a weekly basis but hah! That was like a massive lie.  There are many subject matters I want to write about but frankly they’re things I don’t want associated with my username. Just seek me out in real life and I’ll talk about it. Anyway, I’ll write an opinion piece I guess.

One of my hobbies is bad anime. When I go “bad anime”, I don’t mean anime I view as subjectively bad. After all, just because I may not like the plot, over-moe, fan service, characterization and such of an anime, it doesn’t mean it’s bad.This sporadic writing piece isn’t about that.  This isn’t about the common complaint that “anime was much better in the (decade of your choice)” either. Bad Anime Spotlight will be about anime that is so bad that the majority of the internet can’t help but agree that it’s bad.

First one on the list is Cosprayers. 

cosprayers

What is Cosprayers?  “The Cosmopolitan Prayers” (informally called “Cosprayers”) was a 2004 anime produced by Imagin and Studio Live and directed by Takeo Takahashi. It ran for 8 episodes that lasted for 13 minutes and is part of a distantly related trilogy with Hit o Nerae! (the main character is the in-universe producer of Cosprayers) and Love Live? (the main character is the in-universe writer of Cosprayers).

History That – Danbo!

May 16, 2014, by , posted in History

So like, I haven’t been posting because assignments have been killing me, just like they have been killing all of us. Also the tiny little fact I would have written about a kinda infamous 1987 tentacle porn and it’s rise to infamy. Maybe I’ll write about it later. However, I will write about something that is actually relevant to the club for once.

DANBO!

We’re building a giant Danbo tomorrow! Now what is Danbo?

Danbo was actually a character’s costume.

In the manga Yotsuba&, one of the younger characters creates a robot costume out of cardboard for her school project. Yotsuba is only four and she becomes convinced that Danbo is an actual working robot. And that’s about it really.

Sorry about the short post but good luck on all your assignments!
