First Impressions

Weak Winter Impressions

Okay! After I made a post about sighing a lot due to the amount of shows that I want to watch this, I suppose the responsible blogger thing I should do is provide some first impressions. I’ve watched a bunch, some surprised me, some disappointed me, and some made me wonder why I bothered watching it in the first place. I’ve seen other bloggers post their first impressions and  you can tell that there was a lot of thought that went into them.

As a fellow blogger, I felt compelled to follow in their footsteps. I mean, I may be lazy at this whole blogging thing, but I should at least put some effort into this blog. Who knows, maybe I’ll even do a weekly anime thing and start becoming a better blogger hahaha… For now, here are my weak first impressions of the winter anime season.

Spam part 4

My spam filter has been pretty boring lately. The same story from Part 1 shows up from time to time, and I also get comments about how there’s no medical benefits in freelance work. The worst is when it’s just links over and over again.

Come on spam filter, excite me! And please give me more comments like this:

I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back later. Cheers

Oooh…hohoho…I know you’re just spam, but gosh golly are you making me blush.

Other than that, I haven’t really had fun spam action. It’s been a bit disappointing, but thankfully, there have been a few comments that have brought a smile on my face. Like this one:

Whoa! This blog looks just like my old one!
It’s on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Great choice of colors!

How sweet of you spammer, but if you had the same layout and design then you’re probably just using the free Dara theme from WordPress. The colours were from the Palette options provided. The only real thing I changed was the font and the background colour. (The background matches the suit from my header)

The next three are weird, but what makes me love them is how the comments kind of go with the blog post. This one came on the first post I ever made on this blog. It was a Gamers! review and this spammer’s name is ‘how to stop hair fall in women’

What i don’t realize is in truth how you are not actually much more well-preferred than you might be now. You’re very intelligent. You recognize therefore significantly relating to this subject, made me personally consider it from a lot of varied angles. Its like women and men don’t seem to be involved except it is something to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs nice. All the time handle it up!

The first part is weird, because I don’t know if it’s a backhanded compliment or not. I’m intelligent enough to recognize things, but I’m not ‘much more well-preferred.’ It might be a misunderstanding, but that is what Gamers! was all about. Plus they made sure to mention how women and men don’t seem to be involved in things, unless it’s to accomplish stuff….and something about Girl Gaga, which might be another way to say Lady Gaga but as a teen? I dunno, but this was funny to read.

This one came from my post about how everything in Ousama Game is Nobuaki’s fault.

Does anyone find it disconcerting that Goodell is judge, jury, executioner? Oh, and by the way. Goodell will hear the appeal also.IfGoodell has the guts to let this go before arbitration, it will get tossed out. Mark my words

Another weird message, but if we assume that instead of Goodell they mean Ousama, then doesn’t this tie into the show perfectly? I mean, Ousama’s rules made no sense and they were judge, jury, and executioner on the show. The kids can appeal or complain, but that doesn’t matter. Ousama will ignore their concerns and then kill them. Then the spammner goes into something about arbitration, but Ousama doesn’t have time for that. You’ll be dead before it even reaches that stage.

This last one came from a post that seems to be one of the more popular ones on this blog. It’s about how awesome Titania’s Breasts were in Mahoutsukai no Yome.

We’re a group of volunteers and opening a new scheme in our community. Your site offered us with valuable information to work on. You have done a formidable job and our entire community will be grateful to you.

Clearly these spammers, and their group of volunteers, are huge fans of Titania’s breasts. So much so, that they are using this valuable information for their new scheme in their community. How can a fairy’s breasts do this? I don’t know, but that’s just the magic of good boob jiggle. It can bring people, communities, and the world together.

Aikatsu! Challenge wk 2

I’m for week two of my Aikatsu Challenge! This time I’ll be covering episodes 6-10. Unlike before, I won’t be extensively talking about how the girls lack any form of butts, even though that’s all I see when we get the long shots. It’s. All. I. Can. See. Instead, I’ll behave myself, because idols don’t go to the washroom, so something like this is to be expected.

As for the actual show, it’s weird but I find myself enjoying it the more I watch it. Aikatsu! isn’t what I’d normally watch, but there’s a lot of charm here that I honestly, and truly, adore. But enough about that, let’s talk about the episodes!

Uniquely Neat – Blogging Award

A new year and new awards. I feel so special 😀 Whenever I get an award two feelings come to me. The first is that my Ego level has been raised by one point. The second is, “there are people out there who read my blog and want to know about me…why?” It’s still a strange concept to me, but it does make me happy. This time I was nominated for the Real Neat Award by A Nerdy Perspective and Irina. And I was also nominated for the Unique Blogger Award by The Spooky Redhead, Moyatorium and Jenn.  (Needless to say, all of you guys should check out their blogs. Unlike me, they’re not lazy with their content and always have wonderful posts at hand. I’m truly jealous of their commitment to blogging and the awesome content that they always have. May you guys keep blogging and doing what you do. This place wouldn’t be the same without you. 😀 )

And with that, let’s get to the awards and answering some questions.

Sparkling Smile Sunday

Sparkling Smile Sunday 9

Hope you guys had a wonderful week. I’ve spent some of it vomiting some fun stuff. Unfortunately, it didn’t come out as rainbows and sparkles like you see in anime. It was just regular ol’ vomit. I’m assuming I just ate something that didn’t sit right with me, since I’m not sick and I don’t feel like this is a stomach flu. I am feeling better now, even though I still feel a little off. So I haven’t been posting much mainly because I’m lazy, but also because of the whole vomiting thing I’ve been going through. Thank God for scheduled posts, amirite?

What helped me feel better was compiling my smile list. (Not really, since I still felt like crap after but it does sound better for PR reasons if I don’t mention that, right?) So without further adieu, here are my top three smiles of the week.

Characters from...

Characters from…Gakuen Babysitters – Kashima Ryuuichi

“Our parents were free spirits who hardly ever came home. Then they were in a plane crash, so now they never will. I tried to be strong, but in truth, I was so scared I was trying not to believe it. Somewhere inside me, I thought maybe they might still come back like always. We had no relatives to take us in and before we could really process what had happened the chairwoman of Morinomiya Academy, who lost her son and his wife in the same crash, offered to become our legal guardian. She does believe in give and take, so while she’s our legal guardian we’re meant to help with the babysitter club at school. At first, I wasn’t able to thank her and wasn’t sure if we were truly wanted, but when my brother got sick and I realized that my parents couldn’t come, she showed up.

While I cried, she told me that even though we’ve lost someone dear to us it doesn’t mean that we’re all alone in this world. She also said that I shouldn’t worry about being so strong…As the first member of the babysitter club, I’ll do everything I can and I’m grateful that the chairwoman invited us here. Her kindness then felt warm and reminded me that we’re truly not alone in this world.”

Toji no Miko and their beautiful thighs

Initially, I wasn’t going to watch Toji no Miko. I even mentioned that I’d wait for more episodes and comments, before I even think of checking this out.

But it was there and I was here, so I thought, “Why not?” So here are my quick thoughts on it:

Yea…nothing really happened in this episode. I mean, there was a lava centipede monster and a tournament between schoolgirls, which sounds exciting, but in terms of the actual story nothing was really shown. Whether this show is good or not, I have no idea. I’m assuming this episode was meant to showcase what the girls have to deal with on a daily basis and also showcase their magic, so it seems like more episodes are needed before I can really say anything.

On the bright side, this show does have one glorious thing about it. As I mentioned in my Aikatsu post, I pay special attention to the legs of anime girls. I should also quickly remind readers that this isn’t for pervy reasons. Truly! It just amuses me when I see characters that are all legs and nothing else.

So imagine my surprise that the girls on this show have thick thighs. Not just any kinds of thighs, but the ones you’d get if you’ve done tons of squats. While there are some girls that are typically what you’d get in a moe show, the vast majority have bodies that look strong, even though some are slightly boxy in shape. (But I guess this means that they have hips too!)

If they can take down a monster, then I can kind of believe it due to how muscular they look. Obviously, there’s magic involved too, but you can tell that all of the girls here have trained their bodies for their mission.

Toji no Miko may be a generic show about girls fighting things, but it’s one I can get behind due to their thighs. Which sounds pervy, but believe me when I say I don’t have any impure thoughts when I say that. Plus, I might still drop this depending on how the show ends up.

Aikatsu! Challenge wk 1

Week 1 is officially over and as promised I’ve watched five episodes of those show. My first impressions so far is that this is cute and I can’t definitely understand the appeal here. I was surprised that the show uses cards to activate the idol within. It’s smart though, because the people who created this series and brand can make lots of money this way. Figurines, cards, animes and songs. It’s genius really.

One of the biggest things that I like is how innocent everything is thus far. It’s aimed at young girls, but it’s still so pure with everything. And after five episodes, there’s no antagonist or mean girl here. Everyone legitimately wants everyone else to do well as an idol. It’s not exactly wacky yet, which is a shame, but there have been a few moments when I burst out laughing.

So how did the episode 1-5 fare, well…

Sparkling Smile Sunday 8

It’s been awhile, eh?

We’re well into the new year, which means we have some new shows out. There’s a lot I’m looking forward to, way too much in fact, but it looks like this will be a good season. Not only in quality of shows, but in smiles too. In other news, this time I remembered exactly when the Steam sales end, so I was able to get some games before the cut off time. I’m feeling pretty pleased with myself….even though I have way too many games in my library that I haven’t played yet, plus there’s a bunch on my handheld and consoles too. But at least I remembered!

Here’s to more smiles in the new year! And with that, here are my top three smiles:
