4chan may be one of the sites that has remained most true to the internet’s original founding ideals (the ones after the original original “In case of nuclear war” concept); in that it is free to all, anonymous, in constant fear of going bankrupt, and populated by the craziest 1% of the population.  As such enjoy this guide, and this post:

ITP we link to Cromartie Queen AMVs.  In honor of the recently deceased Gerald Ford, let us conduct the Homer Simpson test in order to determine the relevance of this to the reader:

GerryAFTM: Say, Homer Reader, do you like football Queen?
Homer Reader: Do I ever!
GerryAFTM: Do you like nachos surrealistic anime?
Homer Reader: Yes, Mr. FordAFTM.
GerryAFTM: Well, why don’t you come over click the link and watch the game video, and we’ll have nachos surrealistic anime?  And then, some beer*.

(Reader must provide own beer.  And send me some.)

Kadokawa Pictures USA releases The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi with Bandai distributing (groan).  Also new on the site, a video I can’t make myself sit through.  For now though, all Iwant for Christmas is for Bandai solve it’s distro problems by the time we get disc one.

Nayuki Gets the News

And now for sleepy Nayuki, ’cause I just can’t get enough of her, and it seems to fit.

 My question though, why is Kadokawa having to release the R1 DVDs?  Were ADV, Funimation, Manga, et all really not interested, was the asking price too high, not enough fan interest (bah!), or have the big-time domesticators simply screwed up?  More ranting and maybe some information…next time!

A Haruhi Christmas? December 19, 2006

Much has been made in more than a few circles regarding the licensing of The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi, or lack thereof.  While we’ve gotten series such as Coyote Ragtime and Fate/Stay Night fast-tracked for US release, the many loyal members of the SOS-Brigade have felt left out in the cold.  A new, apparently official (ANN‘s judgement, and it looks good to these eyes as well) English-language site, with an announcement (of what?) date of the 22nd, may suggest that for many otaku Christmas may indeed be coming early this year.  If the site is to be believed and the world is indeed ending, I for one welcome our adorable, spunky loli masters.  Sadly, WHOIS, can only link the domain to a “Oneanddone” out of Chesterfield, Penn.  Details to follow?

 Also: moving sucks.  Sorry for the downtime.

More Haruhi, Zero according to AnimeSuki boards.

After all, the internet is never wrong.

Apparently KyoAni had been planning on a second season, and have now moved it up, which I’m not too bitter about as Kanon is far too much fan right now.  Be on the lookout next Fall!  Huzzah all the same, now what to do ’till then?

Just as I was getting depressed thinking of all the great (or at least extremely fun) anime that’s come and gone over the past few months (for instance, I’m just now getting around to the Bizarro-Nanashi releases of Eureka Seven), I was pleasantly surprised to see the Fall series starting up.  For awhile there I thought I was gonna have to pay attention to the MLB Playoffs, or maybe start eating paint.

I: Apparently there will be a second season of Kiddy Grade, this from Aya Hirano on a Haruhi SOS Dan Radio via Matthew’s Anime Blog, which I found via this Spanish Anime Blog (!?!).  Yeah, I didn’t know those existed either.  Now to find a Finnish anime blog…

Hey again all, as for the delay in updates, gomen nosai!  As for what was achieved in the interim, important announcements abound!  First, an idea of my own: we need more games based on anime, preferably games that don’t suck (looking at you Bandai), ideally based on series that don’t suck (looking at you Sunr… nevermind).  Let it never be said that I only gripe and allow others to solve such problems, my suggestion: Capsule Hinamizawa!  Granted, perhaps I’ve just spent too much time with the Lego Starwars series of late, or think it’d be awesome to mix Higurashi with GTA-esque elements (like Killer Lolis, free-roaming game play, and being killed in a free roaming game by Killer Lolis), but hear me out .

After twenty-some episodes the try-outs are over, spring training is done, all the lolis are in top form and Studio Deen is taking this next arc to the majors!  No more single-A minor-league crap with Keiichi wiping out Hinamizawa by releasing a natural gas pocket.  No more semi-pro series with Mion and Rena failing to take out wonderboy ’cause he has a bat.  This one isn’t even Triple-A Shion-getting-called-up-to-the-majors after trapping, killing or breaking virtually the entire cast and most of the village heads.  No, no, Rena’s in top form here, and she    could    go    all    the    WAY!
