I stole the scans off of a Chinese forum, translated it and removed their credits. Also, the title to this post is a lie. I’m a bad, bad man. Note: You can get a higher resolution version of all the images in this post by clicking on them. Hope all you animal ear fans and [...]
Please allow me one short rant. I haven’t posted in close to two months, and this post is not going to be some “Big Bang” back to the blogging stardom that I was never in, so I can’t justify using this space for ranting about a pet peeve; but damn it, let me get this [...]
The NUS Comic and Animation Society is holding a drawing competition, and everyone (provided you live in the island nation of Singapore, of course) are invited to join in the fun and participate! The poster is linked below. Click on it to get the full-size image (1.88MB) and check out the details. I’ll transcribe some [...]
The character most prominent in my mind after watching CLANNAD 24 is Tomoya. Is writing for Impz finally having an effect on me?
ToraDora manga. Don’t let that look fool you – she’s called the Palm-sized Tiger for a very, very good reason. It’s holiday time, and I’m in Hong Kong, enjoying a well deserved break after a particularly stressing exam period.

This is just incredible. And, as far as I can tell, absolutely legit. Dark grey blocks make Mario run until he bumps into something; green Yoshi blocks make him jump, and pink Yoshi blocks do the same but make a sort of twit-twit sound; he bounces off note blocks, with a different sound effect depending [...]
It seems there’s still some confusion about what Tower of Druaga: The Aegis of Uruk‘s OP means. Is it a hint as to the real nature of the world: are they all actually just playing an MMORPG? I think that’s a brilliant idea, but unfortunately I’ve decided that it’s nothing more than a gimmick.
What is it about episodic anime that I like so much? Even discounting the comedies, few shows in my all time favourites can maintain a storyline for more than a few episodes at a time (in before ADHD accusations). Mushishi is one that springs to mind constantly, each episode a sublime story of human struggle, [...]
I certainly hope there isn’t any romance here. *because I can’t get [blockquote] to do anything in this theme, I’ll rely on list instead for quotes in the rest of this post. JPMeyer thinks defining genres in anime and manga by their characteristics is silly: I always laugh whenever people try to do a semantic [...]
