Not an otaku, but just lingering passions

Yamato 2199 , awesome revival(-ing) at last

As a Space battleship yamato fan, I approve of this for the new fans and probably some old fans.

Also, despite having a short appearance, all of the man in this ship deserves the award of manly man,

Let me find him singing the tunes of space navy songs whilst fighting the aliens outgunned.

Seriously I planned to write this up much earlier but i kept forgetting to do so. I ended up watching this anime back to back about twice. There really is nothing much I can talk. we all know yamato story, this is basically the shorten , less corny and more pretty version of it which isn’t a bad thing. In fact, this is an awesome anime. GO WATCH IT.

Personally if they could do more similar revives of older anime, that will be awesome. I will be really happy if they re-did UFO grendizer with Yamato 2199 production level. T__T I WISH.

ps : this post was back dated tooo damn long.

I am looking forward to Kangoku Gakuen

kangoku gakuen

nuff said. Because, boobs.

I have no idea about the plot of this anime that’s coming out in another 2 weeks time but i guess judging from the jugs, this anime is gonna be entertaining enough. To be fair, i only knew about this anime when someone on twitter said (something unrelated)

Which youtube then showed me the trailer which I’ve watched feeling disgusted by yet another aquarion anime that isn’t as epic as the first. On the side bar, youtube suggested me to watch other clips, so i clicked on this :

And Kangoku Gakuen was the first.. which prompted me to make this post.

Ok than i actually watched the whole clip. OMG much interesting anime coming. But i will hold on the hype train until i actually seen a few episodes. Although Gate looks promising

But the elf princess did spoil it a bit for me. From the trailer it looks like a bleak anime where bullets dont work against Orcs and other demons., but typical anime princess saves the day.

I just hope there’s at least one or two watchable gems in it. Kangoku Gakuen, don’t fuck it up please.


Well I just finished watching Ga-Rei:Zero .. And i must say i really enjoyed the shit out of it. I was thinking whether should i really write about it?.. I guess I’m too lazy :P, go check out reviews from the other bloggers instead! well if want an anime to watch, Ga-Rei:Zero is 12 episodes long so, that’s about 4 hours worth of back-to-back anime.

The best sub villain , Captain Nira



This guy there, Captain Nira, I salute you. He has in my books, become the top sub villain in Kamen Rider. He is pure asshole material. He goes his way out to make life difficult for the kamen rider and special task force… And to top it off, he doesnt even need to get brain washed! He is “evil” because he wants to stay in power which is your typical licking the boots of powerful forces and he is the kind that will switch sides on a snap if a better deal comes up.

link to his wiki page (the wiki is in it) : http://kamenrider.wikia.com/wiki/Kisuke_Iida

Seriously, This dude can ACT WELL. It brings smile to my face when the production of Kamen Rider has been improving the past few years (since Decade i reckon). Even the new actor (our beloved Shinosuke aka Drive) can act relatively well. I really hate this guy but at the end of day i know he is just human and although selfish, he is looking out for himself.

Our big villain, 001, has in fact achieved ultimate evolution and he turns, golden. Fuck. This is fucking lazy evolution. 001 don’t even look at different !! A paint job =/= evolution! it is just spec up!


If you have been watching the past few episodes (30 – 34), there is kind of a twist to it. So warning, SPOILERS AHEAD.

I seriously thought he ACTUALLY turned good. But i was wrong. Will reveal the plot in a few more episodes time, don’t want to spoil too much 😛


So Shinosuke died (I was actually happy for a moment, thinking that Chase might step up to be the main KR instead) but alas, he revived. Like a super saiyan that comes back from death, he will be powered up.


At this point, I can see why Drive make sense as a kamen rider. You just can’t do epic revival scenes like this with a bike.

And also, you can do more mojo to a car and make drive potentially one of the “strongest” rider in terms of firepower.

When i saw the preview, i thought type tridoron was Kiroko transforming into kamen rider drive >..<.

Type tridoron is a beautiful design (i’m assuming this will be Drive final form), however, no design so far can beat KR Gaim Shogun form but this is the step in the right direction, where you design cool looking final forms instead of stupid looking ones. If you remembered Decade final form, it is ugly as hell. Fourze although not as bad, it could be improved.

With the show being in episode 34 and we are in mid June, I would say the show will end the year with a bang. So far, there doesn’t seem *touches wood, throws salt over shoulders* to be any major hiccups. It looks like Brain & Heart will be our final villain in the end… It will be nice to see a fully deck out Heart fighting Drive.


By the way, I hate how using the finisher cannon will revert Drive back to which ever Type car he last slot in (speed, wild, technic or formula). So for example, when he finishes off 001, he inserted Type Speed + Type Tridoron into cannon which he ended up reverting back to type Speed when the cannon finishes the blast.

But this is just a minor issue. Not sure if type tridoron needs recharging or not after Drive uses the finisher move. But I’m sure they will talk about it soon, or maybe not.

Now please, spec up KR Chase! He needs a power similar to Dead heat. Although Type Dead Heat is looking underpowered at the moment.

With that, i shall leave you whilst i wait for the next episode of Drive.


6th sentai coming next


This is interesting , we will be getting the 6th member in the next episode. There does not appear to have any signs of the enemy powering up so far, i wonder how much more dynamic changes the 6th member will introduce? As it stands right now, the current 5 members have a rather bad team work and they are pretty noobie despite being a shinobi.

I’m glad the 6th sentai will have a bull! I always approve sentai with bull design.

Cowboy perhaps? He does speak english. and he is playing an electric guitar.

Food porn is deliciously interesting and ecchi too

Shokugeki no soma is a show about cooking and many many ecchi scenes for some reasons. I read a bit of the manga before and I kinda have an idea on what to expect but fuck, i did not expect this to begin with

I meant this



OK this is what i really meant

of course let’s not forget to show the best part

I’m actually watching this just for the plot and not the *would-be* porn. Also, i’m very convinced this is the sequel to Mister Ajikko because of this old man. I dont care what others say but THIS IS THE SEQUEL BITCHES.

Found it on youtube so you can compare! XD

In case you are too young to know, Mister Ajikko is one of the earliest anime that I’ve watched as a kid. it was dubbed in chinese, probably imported from taiwan. Ahh i wished there’s a HD remake of Mister Ajikko, the food porn will be so good in this anime. And it teaches you how to cook too. I love older anime, educational and entertaining!
