It has always been a common thing for otaku to buy and get the stuff from Japan and I do understand that, but every once in a while, a rare gem appears. Megatokyo is one of those few manga titles made entirely in the west. Of course, you still have the Japanese influence in there but this masterpiece is one of my favorite western made Manga. In fact, this thing started out as a webmanga way back in 2000. Megatokyo is actually celebrating it’s 10th year and its still going strong.

The beauty about this manga is that its available free online at Megatokyo.com. You can start from the very beginning of the manga (Chapter 0) up all the way to the latest release. If you are too lazy to go thru all those pages, get the paperback editions (which I do have). The panel above shows my favorite couple Erika and Largo. Erika is a former idol and seiyuu that was really famous in Japan. She’s now just a lonely store clerk in an Anime, Manga and Gaming shop. Largo, is an American who happens to be the ultimate l337 gamer, hardcore computer overclocker and super smart awesome-sauce hacker. Go read this amazing masterpiece now!

av2How fitting that the underlying theme of this episode of Durarara sort of reflects my current situation.

Simon may look like a simple harmless guy but he seems to have a certain wisdom in him. The sort of wisdom that only a person of his experience would ever know.

It’s interesting how Anime like this can touch and inspire the little things in me. I’m in Hong Kong right now actually. It’s a new city (though I’ve been here twice in the past), with new opportunities and stuff that makes me want to get away from it all. Aside from being alone and swamped with work (I’m on a business trip with my boss), I guess Anime / Manga is the only thing I can fall back to.

Spoiler Warning: Yada yada yada…

snw3This episode really answered a lot of questions. It seems my speculations in my past posts were off, but thanks to this episode I finally understand what Sora No Woto is about.

This episode also revealed another side to Rio. A side of her which I find really sweet and at the same time admirable.

There’s also something about this episode that made me feel so at ease and so satisfying. I can surely say this is one of the few Anime series that has touched my heart, considering that it’s still early in the series.

Spoiler Warning: You know the drill.

The narrow gap

shureiavI’ve been noticing a trend build up in Anime / Manga since 2008 and I’ve always wondered why there was a strange division of genres and sort of “alienation” between fans. I guess what I’m trying to say, the love for the Anime / Manga has grown complicated that these have somehow made fans either biased of each other or just plainly ignorant.

Now the following is merely my observations on people and trends. I surely do know that many of you may have different opinions and observations, so let’s just say I’m just adding up to the pile of facts that many don’t seem to quite get a grasp at.

Hit the jump to view my not so theoretical senseless thinking about this topic.

Shippai date good night~

It’s been a while since my last MMD project, so I thought it was about time to make another. I’ve chosen Tsukasa Hiiragi’s Image Song from lucky star “Reset” because this somehow made the two characters I chose, Rea and Usausa, fit into the video.

I found the models on the VPVP Wiki as well as the stage. The only thing I’ve done here is fix a weird bug during a scene when they kicked their legs. Rea (the girl in red) is the only one singing here. I thought it would be cuter if Usausa (the little kawaii bunny girl) would just dance along. I also edited this video in Sony Vegas and added a a slight blur effect to make it look more polished.

I’ve had help from a friend this time though. He did the camera motions and a bit of the lighting. Thanks Shij!
