Kami no mizo shiru Sekai II Ep.12

Yeah, this is one chick that you need to bang as well. Now do it or your head falls off!

The final episode of KamiShiru is as crazy, no crazier than the last episode of 1st season. Gundam is not the only parody -- it is pure parodies on parade.

And of course all the girls came back for some cameo (there are quite a lot of them now) and the end card said "Continue", though the sales of BD/DVD and the amount of source material not yet adapted do not bode well for a 3rd season, at least for quite a while:

The material for World God Only Knows deserves another season. Not enough fire trucks yet.

So all day I've been barreling through Heavy Metal L.Gaim and I'm now up to episode 51. Yeah, eleven episodes, my second longest marathoning of any anime series after when I saw G Gundam (I could literally marathon myself through seventeen eps :dizzy: Once for 17 eps, once through 14 eps, only Gundam X really compared until now.) So yeah, I'm enjoying it, this series definitely picked up the pace since it first began. I'll watch the last three eps tomorrow, right now I'm a tad tired.

No, it's the show about Elsie, where Elsie does naive, adorable things because Elsie is naive and adorable. Also, it's about Elsie's love of firetrucks.

I could not agree more. I haven't read the source material yet, but I'm sure I'll get to it eventually. The industry needs more Elsie.

Fractale manga / Ano Hana success / Amazon ranking Jun26

Postby symbv » Tue Jun 28, 2011 1:22 am

Earlier I gave some news about the continuing aftermath of the Fractale debacle, and some more have happened after that tweet by the manga artist.

At first no anime staff including Yamakan said anything, but then one fan tweeted (which got reported widely in 2ch and other blogs) that although he loved Fractale the anime enough to be one of the 500-600 or so who bought the Vol.3 BD, when he read that manga artist's tweet he felt so distraught about the ordeals she went through that he could not read the manga without thinking about her "tears", so he decided to throw away the manga -- and he produced photo to prove that. This created a lot of discussions in 2ch and finally jolted Yamakan into action.

He tweeted that he had asked the magazine to stop the manga (though no details about whether the request was accepted and whether there is any contract issue involved). He apologized to having got someone else to suffer because of an "uninteresting anime" he made though he maintained he believes his artistic sense. That was very fine, but he then tweeted that she should write what she wanted and "not blindly following suit for something called manga adaptation". This caused another whirlwind of complaints from 2ch etc -- as it seems that he is only saying this when the media mix did not work out (because the anime bombed) Now people wonder if Yamakan will do media-mix in his future projects.

Apparently it was also reported in western blogs
http://www.ani.me/zine/manga/article/1183/


======

Ano Hana's final episode managed to press all the right buttons of the people who count -- i.e. those who are willing to pay $$ to buy the anime BD/DVD and the effect is PHENOMENAL. All the 6 volumes of the anime now keep a stranglehold of the top 6 slots of Amazon JP BD anime ranking last weekend. Analysis of the ranking even seems to indicate a possibility that its sales may even overtake I.S. which in itself is a hugely successful anime (on par with Angel Beats).

A big marketing campaign is now being followed up. Big poster has appeared next to the front entrance of Shinjuku JR station, the busiest train station in the whole Japan. It is Menma from the last episode, of course:

I heard it is still anime-related.... (hint: MF)

Another photo of the Anohana poster, just to show how big the poster is:

After the end of KamiShiru, there is a surge of moe calls from 2ch for Itoh Kanae. At least we can still hear her in Hana Iroha:

And here is the collection of KamiShiru2 end cards:

Curse you symbv. You just reminded me of Asobi ni Ikuyo! You will pay for that >:[

Just watched TWGOK ep11 although I was happy to see some appreciation for Pro Wrestling at the start, the rest of the episode was a big, turd sandwich.
Being a patient, freeloader on CrunchyRoll, I’ll have to wait a week for the season finale. Pity me.

I have 10 eps of Utena remaining and some Gunbuster before my mission is complete…

That's the best way to pay homage to Kawakami. :)


Gonna try watch Denpa Onna again, and follow it up with more Bakemono.

watched AnoHana today, i liked it alright, but i can somewhat agree with the ending being (kinda) crappy. i know that animes reuse scenes often, but either the "who'd like that ugly girl" scene was overused or it just seemed that way because i marathoned it. probably the latter.

i also watched steins;gate 13. time is trolling hard.
i want rebuild

Steins;Gate was really good, but Oakrin needs to step up his game if he really wants to fix things.

SERIOUSLY!?!?! Seriously? I feel terrible for Nae-chan in that last one but damn.. I guess they're really driving home their point there. I'm happy to see that we know why Mayuri calls herself a hostage.
If I were Okabe I would send myself back a full day and start from there. Too much going on. Also they're not after Mayuri so just send her home. Just send her home..
