This lead me to make a guest post on Beneath the Tangles, a wonderful blog that explores the connection between anime and Christian and spiritual themes. So, if you’re interested, […]

In Which I Discuss Various Musics, and Arrange Them by Their Virtue

2011 has been a pretty stand up year for anime, all told (despite what the declinists would have you believe). Especially as far as soundtracks go there was quite the selection, and while I couldn’t possibly listen to everything, I did listen to some of it. A lot. These are those soundtracks.

Sai Mecha: Bracketology Contest

Promo video courtesy of Tronulax from Anime New Modality. Zeta/Mk II got mixed up but the video’s awesome. -EO As part of ExecutiveOtaku’s contract with THAT I am obligated to provide some commentary on the Sai Mecha Tournament.

Getting Older in the Merry Month of May

Well it seems that I have been punching keys at THAT for three plus years, since I am very late with this post, still blog birthdays (and a real birthday this week, though not the same as Willie Mays’ sadly…) are still worth posting about if only so that I can count how many of […]

Interstellar Flight: Watching Anime with Fellow Fans over the Internet

My anime and manga hobby is too, a social activity. It isn’t quite enough for me to watch a show by myself and be content to enjoy it by myself then move to the next one. I derive a lot of gratification sharing the experience with others. It is why blogging is so enjoyable for […]

Koumajou Densetsu II: Professional Seiyuu on a Doujin Game? Hell Yes.

Eri Kitamura, Satomi Sato, Aya Endo, Rina Sato, Miyuki Sawashiro, Haruka Tomatsu. Yes, these are all top notch Seiyuu. Yes, they are ALL in Koumajou Densetsu II: Stranger’s Requiem.

A Very, Very Late Look at Some of C78′s Music Pickings – Part 1 Out of Who Knows…

If I actually listened to everything from C78, this would be my position for… a very long time. Let me say that I’m a BIG Doujin music fan. I can’t say I’m more than that, because I certainly don’t prioritize that above anything else, but listening to Doujin music is definitely pretty high on my […]

My Genshiken

My Genshiken is real. It exists. It can’t replicate it in meatspace, thought it can come pretty close. But my Genshiken is indeed real. You might even be part of it.

Idiosyncrasies and Eccentricities in Viewing and Reading Habits

Some people have certain rituals or manipulate their environment to create the best experience watching anime. I’m not talking about this at all. I use the same computer for work, play, reading manga, watching anime, and writing blog posts. So the only thing that’s probably peculiar is how interruptable I am. By this I mean […]
