Anime Genre-ism, Madoka and Magical Girls

November 25, 2011

There is one thing that bothers me regarding Madoka, or more accurately, some of Madoka’s fans. Since the first episode of Madoka aired, on many forums and blogs and sites, I have noticed many comments along these lines: “I usually don’t touch Magical Girl Anime, but I am glad that I picked up Madoka” and comments on how Madoka has ‘redefined’ the genre.

CDP: Creating My Dream Sakura Doll

November 18, 2010

Being a self-proclaimed die-hard fan of the series Cardcaptor Sakura and the titular heroine, Kinomoto Sakura, I have been simply distraught over the fact that up to this date, no ‘good’ figure of Sakura has been released. From what I’ve gathered after prowling through auction sites and CCS Fan Sites, the only completed PVC figures of Sakura were all lower quality prize figures or trading figures. As for dolls/action figures, Bandai has released an entire plethora of ‘Bendy Dolls’ in their old ‘Free Pose Selection” range.

The main bodies of these dolls are made of a bendy plastic/rubber type material. While they do look good in some poses while appearing seamless, they look awkward in others and are a chore to pose.

What is one to do in this situation?

An Analysis of My ~Anime Harem~

June 6, 2010

A year ago, numerous Anime fans jumped on the Anime Harem bandwagon, myself included. All one needed to do was to select 8 of one’s all time favorite Anime characters, female or male depending on your gender or persuasion, and post them for the entire population of depraved Otaku fiends to feast their eyes on.

One year of mind-numbing, reality-escaping Anime later, I wonder how my harem has changed… Do be warned that there might be minor plot spoilers to the various shows that the characters come from in the various discussion segments.
