Picks of the Week (DVD/Blu-ray)

OMG! Real Life Ritsuko Tainaka!

Sorry for the lack of updates, folks. Work has been crazy busy this past month… which, of course, gets in the way of non-work activities such as anime and podcasting. But since the money that it generates goes towards paying for said anime and podcasting gear, well, it’s a necessary evil that must be endured, […]

K-ON! Blu-ray fansubs are starting to show up in the wild

K-ON! seems to be the current series du jour among the cool kids these days. And indeed it’s actually quite enjoyable – fun and lighthearted with your traditional cast of quirky characters and even some good music to boot.

Silent Lucidity

Recently I was going through my hard drive and found a folder full of AMVs that I had forgotten I had. Watching these brought back a flood of memories of AMV contests from years past, and I saw quite a few of my favorites in the mix. One video, in particular, absolutely floored me when […]

Holy crap, that’s a lot of people!

If you’re a long time listener of Otaku no Podcast, I’m sure you’ve heard certain of our panelists complaining about the large crowds at certain of the more high-profile anime/comic conventions. Indeed, when you look at the attendance figures for two recent events, Anime Expo (reportedly 44,000) and San Diego Comic-Con (reported by Wikipedia as […]

Captchas implemented for new account registration and anonymous comment posting

Fortunately the wonderful Akismet plugin has caught most of the spam comments, but the site has been hit with a rash of new account creations that appear to be spammers. In an attempt to prevent future problems, I have implemented captchas – […]

“Sekirei” series back for a second season!

Sekirei is a fun series – nothing special, but fun to watch… and it has plenty of “eye candy,” if you catch my drift. If you’re interested, you can watch for yourself thanks to the fansubs.

The only problem was that its ending left… umm… much to be desired. Like most series derived from manga, […]

Check out my TWO new groups on Crunchyroll

I’m a total fan of Crunchyroll… and to think, I only heard about it a few months ago! And I still am amazed at the thought that generally well-subbed anime hits the Crunchyroll feeds just 1 day after they are aired in Japan – it’s just too cool, I can’t hardly get my brain wrapped […]
