Mahou Tsukai no Yome (chapters) 1-9

I think I went into this expecting too much. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great. Not as great as I had hoped, anyways. As someone who has visited the 人外×少女 tag on pixiv for a long time (and as expected there is a TON of this series in it now), I thought the idea of a series that was this tag embodied would be pretty awesome! So I guess that’s just why my expectations were so dang high.

But hey I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt. Nine chapters isn’t very much, after all.

Saimoe Round One Thoughts

destroy saki, destroy atago, praise index

 

I won’t do this for each round but it’s just that I normally do predictions before hand and I didn’t get a chance to this year. So I figured I would wait.

So far this year hasn’t been super thrilling, mostly thanks to shit Saki. Nico and Honoka were knocked out in the first round which was a shocking party upset but thanks to the stupid Loser’s Round, they’re right back in again (more or less). And plus my Saimoe hopeful lost by one vote so really why do I even CARE.

But  whatever, I’ve been paying attention and here’s what I’m thinking so far.

Love Live! Remix Roundup (Part I)

It’s been awhile since once of these posts, hasn’t it? A long time, actually.

This one is more in line with the previous Penguindrum post but uh… longer and more daunting. So much longer than expected that I just ended up splitting it into two posts and it’s still pretty rough.

And this is nowhere near complete or thorough. It’s a bunch of songs but only a handful in the grand scheme of Love Live. I might one day add the remaining songs, either to this or as a new post but that would require a lot of ambition and work and I’d probably have to have no other projects planned as posts.

If you have any suggestions, spot any errors or all that good stuff, just let me know so I can fix it up. I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep updating this once it’s posted but if you have any suggestions (especially in the albums part) let me know anyways.

  • If something doesn’t work or is incorrect, leave a comment and I’ll get to when I can.
  • If you’re an artist whose work is listed here and would like it removed, again, leave a comment and I’ll get on it ASAP.
  • Given the nature and length of this post, it might load a bit slowly for some users.

Fang-tan’s Top 10 Touhou Groups (2014 ver.)

A lot changes in five years. A lot.

When it comes to this blog, five year old (and older!) posts sometimes get deleted (a lot) because I’m hella (hella) embarrassed of them. But since somebody pointed out to me that this particular post in question showed off my pleb and blasé taste back then (ok those were my words not theirs), I realized I had to rectify this.

Indeed, the post I made five years ago about my favourite Touhou artists feature all rather… ‘obvious’ and embarrassing choices (and MyonMyon I haven’t even listened to in five years so I don’t even remember them that well). It could just be me, five years older embarrassed for myself and my shitty taste but my pride won’t let me stand down.

Here’s my top ten favourites, five years later.

Seven Year Anniversary

Another year, another celebration. Same old, same old. To be honest I wanted to celebrate this a bit more but I was lazy. Now I barely have any time left now that I’ve started working full time and have to find new and creative ways to fit an appropriate amount of sleep and Tales of Xillia 2 into my daily routine. I’m having a bit of a tough time at it right now and I hope that I adapt but if seems like things slowed down even more than usual, well that’s why. Though I just did start about a week ago and that doesn’t really account for why I didn’t post anything all August…

Moving along, I’ll give the same spiel I usually do. More than anything else, this has been a place for me to talk about the things that catch my eye. Whatever they may be. Sometimes (ok alright like I wasn’t paying attention or I totally wouldn’t have posted two Korra posts back to back) it’s not even anime related stuff. But there’s always been the few that have followed for a long time for whatever reason and of course I want to thank you.

One thing that surprises me when I meet people who have read this is that I sometimes get called a music reviewer. I’ve always thought that’s pretty funny, to be honest. I’m not really good at that. I don’t know much about music at all and I’m not entirely confident enough to say “yeah this is the best of the best” so everything is just a suggestion. Besides, I only post music I like. A reviewer would post anything and everything ,yeah? I only want to share the music I like. When people say they discovered something because of a post I did, it makes me really happy. So that’s been motivation for a long time.

But with that in mind, I wanted to post a little something something, especially because seven is my favourite number. That means we have to celebrate some how!

[c86] ALBATROSICKS – DEKKAINO

Alright so if I even began to TRY and explain how excited I was about this album, I doubt I could explain how thrilling this was.  Regardless of how I have felt about IOSYS in the past and how I feel about them now, ALBATROSICKS has always had a special spot in my heart.  After all, their first album came out seven years ago. Months after this blog was started even!

Still, the last album had been Rebirth Era (which was my favourite of their entire discography) but came out at the very end of 2011. There was a Best Of album and then nothing. It seemed like all hope was lost and that the group was done for.

Obviously that isn’t the case now and I couldn’t be happier! (Now if only I could get my hands on Rebirth Era too…)
