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.

The True Target Audience of Anime

March 2, 2011

I chanced upon this picture and could not not share it. It’s the official Sales and Marketing report for the Anime ‘Futari wa Precure’. Check out the circled table which is labled ‘Main Target’ (audience).

Boys: 16~18, 19~22, 23~30, 31~35
Girls: 4~6, 7~9, 10~12

Next time someone gets on your back for watching/liking Anime meant for little girls, you can now tell them it’s officially for grown men as well. (^.^;)

*For the record, I love Precure, with my favorite being Heartcatch. The original was good, but had some elements that really annoyed me, especially the ‘buy our merchandise’ vibe and stupid villains which thankfully has slowly been diminishing with each new series. Have to admit though, that theme is catchy as hell and I <3 Nagisa. That is all.


Actar’s Reviews 172: Ho-kago Teatime Second Album Audio Cassette Replica

November 3, 2010

Want to get a replica from K-on! but don’t want to shell out thousands of dollars on their instruments? In my opinion, besides cups and Nekomimi, this is the best and most meaningful replica that is a must have for any K-On! fan.

Manabe Megane Megami Moe~

August 30, 2010

Definitely a prime candidate for my current top favorite Figma figure, Wonderfest Exclusive Manabe Nodoka delivers so much more than I had originally expected.

She was supposed to make her debut in my upcoming loot post, but I was so excited for Nodoka that I couldn’t resist playing with her, posing her and snapping a couple of photos.
