Wakfu Kickstarter Rewards

Wakfu

Last year Ankama had a successful kickstarter that ended up at $483,524 CAD in the end. To be honest, it’s been so long that I forget what the initial goal was. To raise enough for a dub or for the bluray release itself? Well, whatever. Here we are.

I feel pretty lucky since my package arrived in short time and didn’t seem to be missing anything major. There was no smug duck sticker but that seems to be a problem that everyone has. And after looking at the comments for the kickstarter, it seems like other people have had major issues with their rewards so I’m still grateful mine is okay.

Maybe it’s because I got lucky that I want to give Ankama the benefit of the doubt. The kickstarter raised way, way more money than expected which came with a lot of people supporting them and a lot more responsibility for a smaller-ish studio. Granted, I guess that doesn’t excuse the fact that certain people paid for certain things and didn’t get them. Or that the quality of the BDs is lacking.

I haven’t listened to the dub personally (I only had time to watch the new episodes yesterday and I wanted to watch them in original french) but I know there were lots of audio issues as well. I want to rewatch season two so maybe I’ll watch it in English so I can see for myself if it’s as messed up as people say.

Well, whatever. I’m still happy for Ankama and all things considered I’m really happy with what I got.

I would have split season one and season two up had I know there was such a big difference in quality between the two seasons but I didn’t know and here we are.

Hey! Now that I’m done this, maybe I’ll actually start watching airing anime again? Don’t wanna tho.

Loli Salad’s Bi-Monthly Music Feature: Volume #14

[x]

This is sad because I started this weeks ago and was so proud of myself because I thought I’d be done on time. I was wrong.

Yun*Chi – Ani*Yun~anime song cover~

アニ*ゆん~anime song cover~

Yun*Chi

Yun*Chi has teamed up with some notable(ish) people like livetune and Taku Takahashi for this anisong album which features a delightful music selection. That alone sets it apart from the rest.

The only work of hers I’m familiar with is Log Horizon though so I’m not super familiar with her work before going into this.

Spring 2015 First Impressions (Abridged version)

(featuring: Re-Kan, Triage X, Danmachi)

Danmachi

I’ve been watching these so sporadically that I keep forgetting to write about them. It doesn’t help that I’m not invested in anything this season and it’s just filler until the summer which brings us AOTY, Gakkou Gurashi.

Welcome to a new, very important feature here at Loli Salad.

Are you like me, constantly scouring any and every show for a perfect and cute maid? No? Me neither. But it’s nice when they appear! Here is my very detailed documentation on the Official Maid Status of our current anime season.

See a show I missed? One-shot character appear later on? Let me know. For the sake of science. List will be changed as season goes on.

Yuri Kuma Arashi Final Impressions

Yuri Kuma Arashi

I ended up rambling and going off on tangents with this one because I had so much to say and just didn’t know how to say it properly. Which means I really liked this show more than I ever expected to.

Winter 2015 Final Impressions pt. 1

(featuring: Death Parade, Kantai Collection, Maria the Virgin Witch)

Maria the Virgin Witch

Winter 2015 was a fantastic season. The best in a long time. Spring is garbage compared to it. Summer has some hope but it’s going to be incredibly tough to be even half as good as this season was.
