The Ichijou Festival commenced already here, with the first set of polls already closed, and this last half pretty much done with one day to go. That being said, this was an interesting bracket after the last few brackets that have been pretty strong. And by interesting, also in the sense that I haven’t heard several of these songs before now. 😛 Continue reading ‘The Anime Music Tournament 2013 Bracket Ichijou – Round 1 – Polls 1-8 “Analysis”’
JapanStyle blogs an old medical text-book, and the images remind me of Mushishi.
The hat keeps medicine off its head. It likes sake, though.
Ginko would be right at home.
An image search turns up more about them at Pink Tentacle
On the right, the Mushi of spicy food
Updated to make the relationship between the imagery and Mushishi clearer.
Or maybe that should be “Araraginko”.
In the maligned episode 10 of Bakemonogatari, at about 7:57 in the episode, Mushishi fans can hear that familiar three chord descent on the piano, interweaved with a jazzy tune (Mushishi meets Brubeck’s Time Out), as they’re ascending the steps to the shrine once more.
I'd already been thinking that Araragi's one-eyed look reminded me of Ginko
Oshinbo may have the mushi-mastery, but Araragi is the one who keeps trying to solve people’s supernaturally-induced problems.

Bakemonogatari 9 started and I thought I’d stumbled on a lost episode of Mushishi
I walked ten thousand miles, ten thousand miles to see you...
(sometimes that’s an animated gif of the opening few seconds of the episode, if not, here’s a link to something that might work better.)
This episode (the first of the Nadeko Snake arc) was a visual feast — from the bamboo as Araragi and Suruga climb to the shrine…
And every gasp of breath I grabbed at just to find you....
I climbed up every hill to get to you, I wondered ancient lands to hold just you.

There's no Yotsuba! anime, but you could vote for Yotsuboryzae in last year's AGP.
Omo has already blogged about this, and Schneider has given a personal view of the first round.
It’s a lot of fun, with people finding ways to promote their favorite characters and anime — sometimes with text, sometimes with images, sometimes with faked newspapers, and sometimes with the surreal.
Once, with a series of recipes.
Last year, the AGP was taken a bit by surprise when a mob of cosplaying microbes suddenly appeared.
You couldn't vote for Akari (she'd lost in an earlier round), but you could vote for Akoryzae.
The whole thing was inspired by the already-almost-oryzae Aria super-deformed style.
