I wasn’t planning on posting anything today, but this Wiz Khalifa x Hidamari Sketch mashup linked on an IRC channel by an awesome soul is hilarious and clever in concept, decent in execution. “Black and Yellow” indeed.
Happy April Fools’ Day.
Episode 10 of Hidamari Sketch × ☆☆☆, in which Yuno flushes her keys down a school toilet, and ends up rooming with everyone in the Yamabuki Apartments.

This was something that I planned to post about a month ago following SDS’s solid post on Nazuna from Hidamari Sketch × ☆☆☆ on his blog, about how her self-doubt, shyness and passiveness are understandable in her new living situation (suddenly, all alone in a place where everyone else does stuff that she can’t!). In the comment section, someone made a mention in the comments that you could place Yuno in Nazuna’s shoes from when she started at the apartments, and I’d agree with that. But I think what separates the two, and what makes people harp on Nazuna when comparing her to everyone else in the show, is a matter of initiative.
Modesty is all well and good, but too much of a good thing...

Now I knew about Hidamari Sketch × ☆☆☆ when it came out, and I’m eagerly waiting for it to debut soon, which makes it good that I currently have the x365 specials to tide me over, and the fourth volume of the manga coming out soon. But hearing that the show has been licensed in the US puts a lot more pep into my step. Of course I’ll be buying it when it comes out this January (who do you think I am?), so now I’ll just be waiting with bated breath a little more. Thanks, ADV Fil- errr… Sentai Filmworks! errr… Section 9 23!
Now I’m thinking this might be one reason why a certain someone started blogging again(suuuuure…). Maybe I should finish up those x365 posts soon. 😛
And this is not that bad, though it might leave bad memories for some.
With that headline, it should be a golden apple, I suppose
With apologies to SHAFT and Ume Aoki.
Another contribution to the campaigning in the Megatokyo Anime Grand Prix, where Horo is currently a candidate.

Part 1: Interesting People
This year was insane with the amount of anime openings and endings that I liked, and it was hard to narrow down the amount to a “reasonable” number… so I didn’t really attempt to. But these ones here (coupled with Youtube videos) are the ones that stick in my mind the most over the year visually, aurally, or both. That being said, there is a list of Honorable Mentions at the end of the post to include OP/EDs that were also good, but stuff I could easily leave as well. I’m much more critical of music than I am of anime, but doesn’t mean that I have standards. 😛
