Kurokami: Black God, episodes 7 and 8 – A glimmer of hope

After a handful of episodes, a show has pretty much established what it is. If you jump to watch it the moment it’s released, it’s probably a 9-10. If you don’t mind waiting a day or two, it’s probably an 8. If you don’t mind waiting a few days to a week, it’s probably a 7. If you don’t mind waiting for more than a week (or two or three), it’s a 6. And if it’s 5 or below, you’re pretty much ambivalent about when you watch it (if ever).

What’s the deal with Chrono Trigger?

chronotrigger I hope I don’t invite the wrath of Chrono Trigger fanboys, but having heard so many great things about Chrono Trigger and missing out on it during its Super Nintendo glory days, I thought I’d give the DS version a shot (I was a Sega Genesis fanboy in those days, building my chops on games like NBA Jam, Mortal Kombat, Madden and Street Fighter. Ironically, I’ve owned every other Nintendo console, except the one many consider its best, but I digress).

Blog Pimping Chain Letter

I’m an unabashed noob, so my list is short, but what the hell. I’ll keep the party going with my terrible, terrible haikus.

From Martin: (I don’t know Martin, but since everyone’s calling him Martin, I assume that’s his name 😉 )

Here’s my attempt at irony: a recently-established blog that somehow tries to draw attention to other blogs. Heh. Actually the reason I’m posting the links here is that I’ve started to find I’ve been moving more and more feeds on my feedreader into the wittily-titled Hiatus Disease folder; a feeling shared by others if this is anything to go by. Fresh meat for your feedreader is important so without coming across as arrogant (I know I rule but that goes without saying, right?) I want to see more posts like this one from the rest of you. Hit me with your Recommendation Stick!

Melancholy of Haruhi-chan and Nyoron Churuya-san #3

I have no idea what the scheduled release dates are for these webcasts, but I guess they’re not weekly. Actually, I’m not even sure how many webisodes there are supposed to be. I’ve been assuming 12-13. But since it’s Haruhi, who knows. Kadokawa might run a handful of episodes. And then they might air a long lost episode of the real season 2, and then Nice Boat you the rest of the way. Now THAT would be cruel.

Anyway, the episodes seem to be getting shorter and shorter. Haruhi checks in at 2:32, while Churya hits 1:46. Check Haruhi out here, and Churuya out here. Also let it be known that my words carry the power of Geass, because it was only 2 days ago, I wondered why they didn’t release a high-quality version of Churuya-san, and what do we get today? A high quality version of Churuya-san. Voila!

Let me test my luck here. I don’t know why Kadokawa and KyoAni won’t release the real 2nd season of Haruhi. Especially since everyone knows it’s been done for over a year and is ready to air any day now. *Waits* *Crickets chirp*
