You fuckers thought I was gone, didn't you?


Riex emerges from the shadows once again! No loli or frog is safe!


It’s been one hell of a crazy summer. Check out the list:

  • I got a new job.
  • My external HD (anime storage box) filled itself, effectively cutting my anime consumption down to exactly nil.
  • I lost interest in 90% of currently airing shows and discovered exactly what Impz was talking about when he said that he drops shows like crazy.
  • typeZERO, a solo venture of mine, was quite successful (by my standards). This proved to me that people read my stuff ’cause they like it, and not just because I write at THAT.
  • Due to the above, I lost all motivation to try and crowd-please, resulting in a month long hiatus from blogging. (this was also caused by my new job, having money again, friends being down for the summer, full ExHD, some very entertaining books I got a hold of, and lack of interest in current shows)


NO loli is safe. Notice how Impz does anything to be the center of attention. (He forced me to use this image…no lie.)

But life has finally settled down again and I feel like I’m ready to get back into the old writing chair. So here’s what’s rolling around in my head in terms of ideas for Riex @ THAT:

  • Judging by the previews/pvs/cms/trailers, info, etc I’ve seen for the upcoming summer line up, the only show I’m even slightly interested in blogging is Birdy the Mighty Decode. And it’ll probably disappoint.
  • From episode summaries, screens, and general viewing, the only two shows currently airing that I’m still interested in are Soul Eater and Itazura na Kiss (and Code Geass, but it doesn’t count).
  • Due to the two above, the fact that I have a sexy new netflix subscription, and my interest in “old-school” anime, I’ve decided to concentrate on (DVD volume summaries?). Basically, I’m going to blog old (in internet terms) shit.


We’s is skrate gangstas…or was it punks?

So Soul Eater/Itazura updates, old-school stuff, my typical random feature posts, and maybe Decode in the near future.

I also have super-secret plans in the works that you don’t get details on! Hah. And does anyone know in what order I’m supposed to watch all the R.O.D. shit?

    HOLY SHIT. I dunno if I want to be lumped in with the “fuckers” but hell yes, I thought you were gone… and then you go and pop up randomly again :P

    Well, welcome back! I’ll be waiting for the next post @ typeZERO

    Ever notice how THAT links to Natsukashii twice but doesn’t link to Baka-Raptor at all? Meanwhile, typeZERO has an annotated, illustrated link to Baka-Raptor and only some plain text for THAT. typeZero is clearly the superior blog.

    Welcome back comrade, we have much for you to do…congratulations on finding job at capitalist institution, now time to meet your quota.

    @Baka-Raptor
    Sorry must have lost your e-mil in the deluge of spam, will update now.

    For R.O.D. first see the 3 OVAS (very good) and then the TV series (not so good).

    Its about time! Just when I’d thought you’d gone the way of Epic Win…
    Poor, poor Epic Win ;_;.

    Hey, welcome back Riex. :D

    I drop shows all the time. Most eventually lose the appeal. :l

    Yay for Soul Eater and Itazura na Kiss!

    Summer? -grimaces- There’s really nothing that piques my interest at all there so… anime catchup time from past seasons. And manga.

    And super seekrit plans?

    I want in. :P

    PS: My view on ROD is the same as Megamouse-as long as you watch the OVAs, you don’t have to bother with the (3/4?) series.

    I WAS WONDERING WHERE THE HELL YOU WERE!

    I was gonna ask Impz too, but then I forgot. Oh well, too bad you missed out on so much dead bunnies. They didn’t miss you :P

    @Hoshi
    I don’t plan on posting enough to make typeZERO a priority. :( But you’ll probably see some of it’s features implemented in the next version of THAT. Whenever that happens…like, years from now?

    @Baka-Raptor
    WTF? Glad Crusader already fixed the problem. That’s just plain whack. Btw…I didn’t even think you read THAT. Well, not much anyway.

    @Crusader
    I was hoping that the first thing I’d hear when I got back was “we have much for you to do”, not. <.<

    @Megamouse
    Thankssssssss!

    @Sylvira
    OMG it’s you! Super secret plans are secret. That’s all the details I can give.

    @blissmo
    Ummmmmmmmm…I read everything you posted even though I wasn’t posting. Well, except for that second RR post. I just can’t seem to quit your comics or Baka-Raptor’s ramblings. BUT WHERE THE HELL ARE THE REST OF THE COMICS WITH SEXY TRIANGLE RIEX IN THEM!!???

    @rollchan
    I couldn’t have asked for a better response. xD

    @Shin
    Indeed, indeed. I was in shock when I found out I was back as well. Although, my face isn’t quite so round…

    Hey, you resurrected! :P

    I thought you were swimming your way around your new job too much that you opted to bask in it instead of swimming around the wide wired web.

    Good to have you back.

    When would you be updating our typeZERO, though? sekirei’s been there for a month already. :P

    thank god you’re back lol, I was missing your blogs.

    Netflix is awesome, I just added the original Macross to ours since its been so long since I saw it.

    As for R.O.D start with the O.A.V’s they are definitely better than the series, which felt a little bit dragged out at times. I did really enjoy the opening theme for it though.

    Wait, you were gone? I kid, its nice to have you back.

    @Riex:

    SORRY! I know I should draw them, but then cos there are so many strips … and lots of copy and pasting too lols. I’ll get to the next one in about a week. And I can’t quit Baka-Raptor’s ramblings either!

    Netflix has anime? Oh well…
    Yes RoD is amazing, the OVA is pure win, but then while the TV version is not bad… I can’t stand the change of voice for some characters.

    less talk, more entries and less laziness. SLAVE DRIVING WOOHOO~

  17. Posted June 30, 2008 at 8:35 am | Permalink

    THAT was actually one of the first anime blogs I discovered. The post was Impz’s pic dump of Alice.

    I don’t read all the posts in their entirety (as with most blogs), but I at least read the titles, maybe a sentence or two…

  18. Posted June 30, 2008 at 4:24 pm | Permalink

    Riex if you want to distract Impz from slave driving, just throw him a link to Ranka’s concert ;)
