Don’t worry guys, I’m not dead.
I’ve been going to anime conventions for quite some time now, but it’s hard to believe that I have been attending for over six years, and it’s been a while ago since my last blog post about it. I’ve gotta say from experience times have changed. Back then used to attend with my sister just so that I could get hold of all the anime and manga goods I wouldn’t have gotten otherwise because I was too
underaged for online shopping. Now that I have a debit card and an income I only really go just to score some sweet deals and meet people I’ve spoken to on Twitter ( or as I would like to call it Anitwitter). This time around I got to use my new Nikon D3300 DSLR camera I finally bought early this year; finally graduating from the casual-tier point and shoots I’ve been using this whole time.
It’s hard to believe that Hayate no Gotoku! surpassed ten years of serialisation. Ten years, that’s nearly double the amount of year’s I’ve been living lol. Even though I started following Hayate since 2007 it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long since I first came across Hayate in one of those free manga taster books Viz Media used to make years ago when they had spare change. Leaving aside my disappointment that Hata yet again shot himself in the foot by wasting more OVA opportunities, on with the episodic review.
Akuma no Riddle
I’ve seen some shit
Akuma no Riddle taught me that an anime about assassination doesn’t need to include assassination at all.
Those were some pretty fireworks.
Man this shit is so awesome on so many motherfucking levels yo.
I was talking to one of my anime friends and they sent me 7 videos with the name only labelled “Golden”. I said to them; What’s this shit? They just giggled and said “Just watch them and MAKE SURE YOU DON’T PUNCH YOUR COMPUTER WHEN WATCHING IT!”. Then I thought it was some weird haremfuck or some strange moeshit but as I watched the first video, I was like “Yo… what the fuck…”
Sorry for the lack of activity in the last couple of weeks. It’s been a busy Summer for me in terms of getting ready for university and etcetera etcetera, colons and colons. But now I made it! I’m now living the uni student life, in a town 200 miles away from home studying Computer Animation. Ah, growing up. I feel old.
But let’s talk about amines now shall we?
Nerawareta Gakuen (Psychic School Wars) was originally a 1973 science fiction novel by Taku Mayumura, which spawned a bunch of live action dramas, films, but most recently an anime film by Ryousuke Nakamura over at the lively bunch at Sunrise studios.
Don’t get the name of the movie fool you however since Nerawareta Gakuen is anything more than just a psychic school war epic.
