The (Not So) Great Aggregate post

23 01 2009

Seeing as how I’ve been rotting in real life as well as in otakudom, I figured I’d go on a commenting spree today.

Mostly, it’s just jubilation over Mizuki Nana’s No.1 spot on the Oricon charts, one ranking that’s well deserved. Shin Ai is a wonderful song, despite the simplicity. Or perhaps the simplicity is the charm. In any case, when Agematsu Mika and Mizuki Nana team up, the result will always be wonderful.

There are also the new Nanoha figures that will be getting releases soon, like the Alter Subaru(covered at Zotaku), and Alter Fate in Shin Sonic Form. I must be retarded not to know that about the Fate release earlier, considering the news came out around November. Oh wait, I was too busy trying to cram years of subjects into my head within a month. Damn exams.

May’n STREET was also released on the same date as Shin Ai. I still haven’t heard the album yet, but I’m skipping straight ahead to Lion -May’n version- first. XD

LaMB  has been getting lots and lots of publicity as the air date looms closer – Yahoo!answers contest, Blogger’s contest, and even product placement by famed designer Vivienne Tam – which I think marks a positive change for anime merchandising(of a sort), rather than just figurine and plushies.

Well, that’s a lot of tags for now. I’ll go watch WHITE ALBUM now.

Random Stuff : Danny Choo in ST’s Urban

28 11 2008

What the title says. I’m unsure whether it’s been posted on Danny‘s own website, so no links.

My scanner is also spoiled, so no scans either. D:

But basically, it’s just a short description of Danny(and a mention of his father, Jimmy Choo), and the contents of his SGD$30 bag from Germany. There’s the Kagami figurine(figma, I think), Mac laptop, Animax notebook, namecard holder, Casio Win phone, Videocamera, Wallet and a Anime clock(featuring some girl from Clannad). I have the Hayate(from Nanoha) version myself.

After reading the section, I thought it gave off a pretty good impression of Danny and otakus in general.
Although, Danny Choo is probably the only person who dares to bring his figma out everywhere LOL, with the high casualty rate.

EDIT: It seems as if my detection of vaguely insulting sentences has hit another all time low. A.K.X.D posted up about this ST article too and well, just read his deconstruction of the article.
