Advanced Forays into New Types of Anime Blogging Never Seen Before (Plus Wolf Girls!)

In other words, now I am blogging a PROMO!

The True Tears promo, actually. Contrary to my previous expectations, it actually has a GUY in it, so no delicious Nishimura yuri for me. :( However, even so, the strength of Simoun for me was how Nishimura handled the relationships. And the main scriptwriter, Okada Mari, worked with Nishimura on Simoun, as well as for Aria the NATURAL, Sketchbook, and Red Garden (?). However, he (she? I can’t tell with these names sometimes) also worked on Kodomo no Jikan, which really shouldn’t count against him (her) as SOMEONE had to write it. (Similarly, Nishimura directed Ranma 1/2, because SOMEONE had to direct it) Not that I dislike Kodomo no Jikan, it’s more that it’s a different kind of show than what I expect True Tears to end up as. In a heartening counterbalance, however, it appears that Okada did same for Kita e ~Diamond Dustdrops~ which I take to be a similar series to True Tears. I’m interested in both.

It should be noted that I’m not expecting an EARTH-SHAKING INSTANT CLASSIC out of True Tears–if the series manages to be a soft, sad story that hits me at just that right note, I’ll probably like it. The fact that it’s “based” on a Broccoli game kind of worries me a bit (although the anime seems to have nothing to do with the game whatsoever) but, eh. I’m hoping it’ll be a fun little series like Blue Drop has been thus far for me. Except now with less yuri. Romance is romance, what can I say?

Also short, unrelated update: Still massively looking forward to Okami to Koshinryo. Horo apparently is walking around naked all casual-like in the manga. And Horo is hot so that can only be a good thi–

Er, I mean, she’s a really well-developed character! Yes! That’s it! Development! Personality!

Look! Bread! Development! Wolf ears!

John Bull Replaced With Louise Francois le Blanc de la Valliere

Uncle Sam to be replaced with Monica.

I have no idea how many times this has been reported, but it’s absolutely hilarious.

The Daily Telegraph, a British serious business newspaper, ran a poll for its readers to contribute new designs for the Union Jack, the flag of Britain. Long story short, 2ch found out about it, and in the interest of world peace, decided to chip in and help out. The Daily Telegraph, of course, took notice.

The actual winner of the poll was designed by a Norwegian, sadly, but it’s still incredibly awesome. What was that anime licensor’s slogan a long time ago? “World Peace Through Shared Popular Culture”?

Louise Francois le Blanc de la Valliere, everyone’s favorite useless tsundere small-chested Welsh mage is the new dove, and the now ubiquitous leek now replaces the olive branch. The times, they are a’changin’, and the future’s so bright I gotta wear shades.


NOTICE SHAMELESSLY STOLEN FROM G.K. CHESTERTON

I cannot understand those that take anime seriously, but I can love them, and I do. Out of my love I warn them to keep clear of this blog.
