I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Read or Die and How You Can Have Powers Without Small Children

Read or Die is undoubtedly one of my favorite animated movies – high praise when coming from a group of peers with Redline, Makoto Shinkai’s works, Summer Wars, Jin-Roh, etc. Now while the series itself was good, and fleshed out the story some more – I’m mostly going to focus on one of the main aspects that made the movie so good.

Writerscast Episode 37: Asian Privilege is Amongst Us

We’ll apparently be running some panels next weekend at Alternicon, but before that let’s discuss some more stuff this week based on what we’ve written. And since this is Nerdfit – let’s do this with about half of the people who actually wrote articles – because the other half is doing something with Miku, fighting a gas station (not to be confused with Attack on the Gas Station) or something about teeth.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun and Sometimes Don’t Give up too Early

Okay so how about something happier this week eh? So last season is now thoroughly over, and one of the things I find I miss is Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun. Which is odd because I actually gave up on it after the first episode. The jokes weren’t that great, and it was certainly on the fence of ‘should I watch’ but I just didn’t care for the 2 main characters enough to warrant watching more.

Writerscast Episode 36: We Need to go to The Moon

Now I know I. The Buffalo. Promised that there would be a podcast release every week – even if it was unedited. However my cohorts have seen fit to not show up for the past month or so. Some claim it had something to do with AAC, but shit son I ran a panel that reqeuired us to open the adjacent room to fit people – and I didn’t even know I was running that panel.

Ubisoft’s Mini-Games are a Master Plan to Control the World

Last time we discussed Valve, a giant corporation that’s hiding games just out of our reach, but now we have another corporation that’s continually throwing more and more mini-games at us, but why? This corporation is none other than Ubisoft. See Ubisoft has been growing massively, and it’s yearly commitment to make Assassins Creed titles alongside other big blockbusters has proven they want more than all of your money.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Saikano and Please Turn Me Into a Blubbering Idiot Again

I’m not tumblr so this is not a trigger warning. I do have a Trigger warning – but that mostly just goes off when someone mentions Kill la Kill in the same room (you groan, but I needed something here to make me feel happier). Anyway to get serious this post is gonna be sad. Not the typical I’ve-given-up-on-an-entire-medium sad, but like actually sad for a good reason.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: What’s in a Name and For Fucks Sakes Cut the Shit With the Names

You may have seen the little joke I had last week about EXPLOSIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! with a sequel that just added more ! points to the end. This joke I feel would be lost on most people so allow me to explain. See Japan has this thing where sometimes it will have anime anime that ends in an exclamation mark (which let’s be honest you barely have something that exciting go on, it’s a show about a cross dressing butler for god’s sake).
