I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: 1 Year Anniversary

Hi everybody, so wow it’s been a year since I started this shenanigan. I don’t think I’ve fixed anime (that comes from within folks), but I have been very – well let’s say comprehensive in pointing out where it’s broken. I’ve also been suggesting new anime titles like every week though so instead of some boring long winded bullshit retrospective I decided to take all the anime suggestions I had, and make a classic anime chart for what would undoubtedly be a pretty fucken good season.

Writerscast: Episodes 26, 28, and 29 – In the name of the father, the son, and Fred in a ghost outfit-cast

So hi. It’s the Buffalo – or as Nerdfit likes to call me: the-person-they-can-blame-for-posting-unedited-podcasts-on-Nerdfit-what-a-dick-but-I’m-too-lazy-or-busy-to-edit-it-and-he-can’t-be-stopped-so-meh. It’s true though. I can’t be stopped. I am the answer to the unstoppable force/immovable object paradox. Buffalo keep going.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Under the Dog and Why I’m Funding it on Kickstarter

For those not aware already there is a recently launched Kickstarter for an anime project called ‘Under the Dog” and there’s some fairly big names from people working on it that Creative Intelligence Arts has gathered together. Now this is the first from what I’ve seen in terms of realistic anime KS since the Little Witch Academia 2 Kickstarter by Trigger and I did indeed back it.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Tsundere Sharks and Why We Need to Stop the Baka Movement

It’s shark week next week, and in order to give us something to talk about in our podcasts aside from the current events of the world – not that you would know since people are not posting the podcast like I would – all because they want to ‘edit’ out all the frankly appalling things we say. (This is why sometimes you get BuffaloCasts because buffalo does not censor, he feels we should use the whole part. There’s a joke in there somewhere.)

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Mistborn and Anime Either Needs to Stop Explaining Magic, or Make it Better

Now it’s probably going to be a surprise to no one, but I am a huge Brandon Sanderson fan. Right now I’m currently partway through the 2nd Way of Kings novel. (Partly because it’s a lot to take in, but also because the book is able to stop blast doors.) Now one of the things he’s known for doing is the concept of taking a system of magic and explaining it a way that feels like it’s almost a science.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Nichijou and Why I Wish More of Daily Life Had Deer Wrestling

Though it pains me to think it, it’s been a little under 3 years since Nichijou was on the air, and all I’ve ever wanted is something that could truly replicate it. Sure the new things this season (which by new I mean sequels to shorts) Ai Mai Mi and Strange+ are certainly wacky and slapstick – they don’t capture the magic that Nichijou did though.
