Love Live! School Idol Festival Tips for New Players (Updated)

Update 10/11/2015: A few minor updates toward the end of the post.

Update: we’ve finally nailed down a time when we’re all able to get together and record our AX wrap-up of Doom. (Better late than never!) And I think (knock on wood) I’ve gotten to the bottom of my computer problems. So look forward […]


Cool Find: Love Live! School Idol Festival – a really cute (and fun!) rhythm game for iOS and Android

Unfortunately, due to further scheduling conflicts, and a suddenly-very-flaky computer (random spontaneous crashes, makes it really difficult to do stuff like record/edit audio and video) I still haven’t been able to get our AX 2015 coverage online. I’m hoping to have the computer problems sorted out soon, so that I can at least finish posting […]

Cool Find: Misheard Song Lyrics, Anime Style!

When listening to music, it’s not always easy to pick out what the artist is actually singing, even under the most ideal circumstances (i.e. when a singer isn’t shouting into his mike like they do in death metal or whatever.) Back in the good old days, one would have liner notes which often had the […]


Cool Find: Waifu2x – a cool image processing tool to help upscale (not just anime) image files

If you’re a fan of anime (and one would hope that you are, since you’re here reading this blog) then you probably have a rather large collection of anime-themed graphics files sitting on your computer and/or smartphone/tablet. Perhaps you’re using them for desktop wallpapers or a photo screensaver, or as forum avatars, or to jazz […]


Cool Find: Japan Animator Expo showcases talented up-and-coming animators!

Yeah, I know, it’s only been a day or two since I posted our last Cool Find. Please forgive me. The reason for this, though, is a good one, as you’ll soon see: there is a time limit involved.

Japan Animator Expo (not to be confused with that other Expo with a similar-sounding name) is […]


Cool Find: Anime and Manga Stack Exchange

Hi folks. Yes, we’re still here. Sorry for our recent hiatus. Things have been pretty busy lately.

As I may have mentioned in the past, my attempt at getting a higher education (beyond high school) was brief and ended in tragedy. The culture shock of going from living a fairly sheltered, overprotective life at home, […]


Cool Find: Dreeps, a cool new JRPG for those too busy to play JRPGs any more!

Yes, I’m still here. Sorry for the lack of updates recently; this new year has been really busy for me so far. Not only have I been swamped with work, but this is also the time of year when the Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE) occurs. I’ve been a part of the A/V staff for […]

Cool Find: Watch the classic Sailor Moon anime, uncut and unbowdlerized, on Hulu and Neon Alley!

In our recent episode that took a look at what’s coming up at Anime Expo 2014, we declared that this year’s Anime Expo’s “theme” is looking to be a cross between Sailor Moon and KILL la KILL. We also mentioned offhandedly that the original Sailor Moon was available for streaming at Hulu.

In fact, Viz […]


Cool Find: Let Flix Roulette help you decide what to watch on Netflix tonight

Anime fans these days are truly blessed. Gone are the days when you had to wait months and months until the next DVD of (insert name of anime series you’re following) came out, which of course you’d have to pay $30 or more for. Today, with our fast Internet connections, wide variety of computing devices […]


Cool Find: Crunchyroll app for iOS and Android adds Chromecast support

You’re probably wondering where we’ve been and why there haven’t been any new episodes in a while. This year has been pretty bad for me in the health department. Some health problems have finally caught up with me, and could not be ignored any more, and had to be dealt with. This included needing to […]
