Right now there’s only an introduction post and an about page.  I’ll try to get the first non-intro post out by Christmas. Hopefully I won’t die after a year this time! 🙂

As for this blog, it will remain open for the other authors (heartspan who hasn’t posted anything yet + miharu if/when she comes back to blogging). Also, if I want to write something that I feel doesn’t fit in the new blog, I’ll post it here. I don’t know if this decision makes sense, but it feels right for me. And feelings > logic amirite?

That’s it. If there are any readers hehe, thank you very much for reading my bad posts and I hope you follow my new blog~ ^_^

Introducing miharusshi’s little corner: Don’t Forget 「Hakushaku to Yousei」

Hi. I’d been thinking of doing this since several months ago, but laziness always got ahead of me. Then I saw my anitwitter friend, Falconhaxx, doing his own thing he calls “Going Down The List.” (Do drop by his blog!)

Hey, that sounds like a cool series name. And, of course, it made the idea of writing about anime in retrospect—without the need to rewatch stuff—all the more appealing to me. You don’t often see this kind of aniblog gimmick nowadays. Everyone is busy reviewing and commenting on past and current airing shows as they watch these Chinese cartoons. It may look like I’m copying Falcon, but I already got his permission. However, I’m naming mine “Don’t Forget [insert anime name]” in the hope of bringing to your attention long-forgotten titles. Quite fitting, don’t you think? Continue reading

Waremete is a Wonder

[Ohys-Senketsu] Ushinawareta Mirai o Motomete - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.53_[2014.11.09_11.06.00]

That’s right. I am traced CGI.

Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete had lots of bad animation and non-animation right from the get-go. You can even see how most are badly traced CGI. It was decent episode 3 onwards, with only occasional failings, but the damage was done.

There’s a reason why many series debuts with higher visual quality than what it will have for the rest of its run. A significant amount of viewers get turned off by anything ugly. And production schedules usually aren’t messed up yet at the beginning.

Volume 1 sold a measly 400+ BD/DVDs in its first week. Whether its quality animation had anything to do with it failing commercially or not, no one can say for sure. I just wanted to mention its animation failures to open the post.

Yes, this title wasn’t watched a lot. And yes, I liked it very much. So let me dedicate a short post about it in the pretext that I’m doing this because it didn’t sell and it deserves more love (because love is making a blog post about it). Continue reading
