Sengoku Witches: Oda Nobunaga’s strike witch

by dm00

The word for today is "fundoshi"

What if Mori Ranmaru, Oda Nobunaga’s page, was the Sengoku Period’s equivalent of a strike witch?

A Little Something To Break The Monotony…

By TheBigN

I guess I’m finding that it takes a little out of me when I finish up doing the Impressions on a Year posts, since it’s been a while since I’ve posted here, even just for this blurb.  There are posts ideas from me lined up, so you’ll see some actual content from me in the future (I just need to write them first :V).  For now though, thanks to an awesome person on IRC, I’ll just post something that combines two of my favorite shows from 2008.

In other news, this season is still too early for me to feel good saying anything definitive about it, but Maria+Holic is fun (combining all of my anime fetis- interests into one), though the final choice for Yumi seems already made (and I agree wholeheartedly with it) I worry about a trolling attempt from Marimite season 4, and Minami-ke Okaeri needs more Mako-chan. :V

Impressions on a Year 2008: Beginning With Interesting People

By TheBigN

I don’t know if I can do this next year, what with how the end of second year and the beginning of third year of med school (if I make it that far) goes. But more than about actually being able to see plenty of anime in 2009 is I’ll be motivated enough to keep track of stuff that grabbed my attention over this next year like I did this year. It’s been tiring and annoying to set this list up. But even most importantly, it’s been fun to try and do it again, especially when I’ve seen a lot more stuff in 2008 than 2007.  As always, my opinion is not the be all and end all, so feel free to comment and criticize about my picks. If I forgot someone, let me know. If you don’t agree with any of my choices, let me know (hopefully with more than “X character”>*, though :P). Hopefully this will be an enjoyable experience for you as well.:3

To begin with, for 2008 there are still several people that I like enough over the year to write about, but these are the ones that stick most in my mind, even though things might change over time. It was great knowing them, and hopefully I can get to know more characters that I liked from this year as well.

Unfulfilled Expectations or a Drastic My Anime Blog 2008 Primer

By TheBigN

So according to others, I was apparently supposed to be part of the “12 Days of Christmas” craze that’s sweeping the blogosphere, and I’m kinda confused on how that impression came to be. I’m planning on doing what I did last year with the “Impressions on a Year 2008” coming soon after Christmas, but nothing of the sort was happening before the holiday. At the same time, I feel guilty when I see links from other blogs saying that I’m participating in it when I’m not, so I figured that I should go and do something about it. And from the outset be lazy and selfish about it. So, instead of covering my thoughts on the year of anime that I saw, I decided to write about what I thought were the best posts on DMAB this year, even though December isn’t over yet. Of course there’s bias involved here (yay self-horn tooting!), so if you have different favorites than I do, please feel free to say so. Nor is this post itself going to be the pinnacle of good writing (as I’m tired and lazy right now), but I feel that this helps people who haven’t bothered to check out the blog before, and at least it gives me some time to reflect on things.

A mix-up almost as bad as this one?

Thankful for Anime, 2008

By TheBigN

When I did this last year, I thought I was a little unique for setting it up the way I did. Turns out that this same format (and the title even), had been done for years past by one Jason Miao. Goes to show you how originality is hard to come by (orz). But it still is a good time to be thankful for yet another fun year in new anime series.

Initial Impressions on Strike Witches: Well, The World Hasn’t Ended Yet

By TheBigN(o respect probably after this post)

I find Strike Witches to be some cheesy endearing fluff that I don’t mind paying money to watch, since I haven’t fully realized the debt that I’m going to be in once this whole med school/residency/fellowship thing is done with. And granted, I’m probably going to get closer to Nomad’s impression of me mostly watching and liking “moe crap” by watching and enjoying this, but it’s not like I mind too much. It’s entertaining enough as it is, and not because of the fanservice, which doesn’t bug me as much as I feel like it probably should (if I’m not paying attention to it, does it mean something’s wrong with me?).  And the show is probably not going to stick in my mind when it’s done (unless they pull some awesome stuff down a line that is awesome, aka Mai-HiME), yet seeing another character in Yoshika who tries to use her misguided passion and “heart” try and win the day works for me. And at the moment, it’s a show that I think people might actually miss out on because of the “right” reasons (I couldn’t say that for Kanokon if anyone is wondering, though I liked the show). Lol pantsless 1940s FTW.

Note how awesome Sakamoto is. She blocks a pantyshot just by standing there looking ahead to the future.

Coming in for a rough landing? Or taking off to higher heights?
