Cool Find: Good Smile Nendoroid, K-ON! and Hatsune Miku Themes for Google Chrome

Your web browser. You stare at it every day for hours at a time. I bet you that by now it looks pretty drab and boring to you. So why not dress it up with a theme? And, if you are a Google Chrome user, I’ve got just the themes for you!

Are you […]


K-ON! Vol.1 DVD and Blu-Ray coming out on April 26, pre-orders open now

What more needs to be said? (insert standard ranty rant about how Haters Gonna Hate, etc.)

Well, OK, I do actually have one comment. I must admit that I’m rather disappointed that Bandai is choosing to dole out K-ON! in segments. This first disk only contains 4 episodes, meaning that it will be split into […]


Episode #0017 – 2010 Year in Review, Anime Style – Part 2: Rebirth

Cool Find: K-ON, MikuMikuDance Style! (Updated)

Yes, dammit, I’m still on my K-ON! kick. I’ve gotta cheer myself up somehow now that the show is over (although there is a movie coming, we don’t yet know if it’ll be new material or just a retelling). And before you start whining: yes, I like K-ON!. No, I don’t “OMG LOVE!!!!11” it, nor […]


Poll: Who is your favorite K-ON! character?

First, a quick note: I’m changing the way polls are handled on the site, due to feedback from people that the poll sidebar widget was easy to miss. Now whenever a new poll comes out, it will be posted as a new website story, so it’ll be right up front and center. You can always […]


Episode #0013 (Part 2) - Anime Expo 2010

NOTE: This is a 2-part episode. Be sure and download both parts! (In particular, most iTunes installations are set to only download the latest episode if it detects more than one new episode is available.)

Here at long last is our Anime Expo 2010 review episode of doom. I bring you but a small sampling […]

Ladies and gentlemen, we've found ourselves the real-life Ritsuko Tainaka

Yeah, I know, you might be thinking “wtf? two Cool Finds of the Day” But this is just too cool to pass up…

I love K-ON!. I admit this proudly and with no hesitation. And if you want to diss me for it, or think less of me as a person because of it, then […]


Cool Find of the Day: VOCA-ON!

Welcome to Cool Finds, a new category/segment/whatever where I will be bringing cool anime or manga related things I happen to find in my journeys around the interwebs. Could be a website dedicated to a certain series/character, a video, a game, whatever. Either way, I’m sure you’ll like it. So enjoy!

Vocaloid is a pretty […]


The K-On! School is Real!

First, there was the story of the increased popularity of the Washimiya, Saitama area of Japan (and in particular the Washinomiya Shrine located there) because of the fact that much of the anime “Lucky Star” is based in that area. Now comes word of the latest real-life-spot-turned-otaku-mecca, Toyosato High School in Shiga Prefecture.

What? Not […]
