Steins;Gate happened and John titor exists

With just one message, the world changed. Now if you were in this position one day to send a message back to the past, what would you send?. Knowing that whatever you send will alter your present no matter how minor the message may be. Oh by the way, you are limited to 36 english characters as well. About 4 times smaller than twitter.

I got interested in this anime not because i had a choice. Simply because my room mate has it and i thought, Why not watch it together. So i did and boy oh boy. This is such a good choice!! So far I’m at episode 12 and i intend to keep it that way until the series ends. First off, lets begin with the op,


Official site : http://www.kanataro.com/disc/hacking_gate/

Love the tune of the song but the singer’s voice however reminds me of a certain band i once heard off in one of bleach’s OP or was it naruto? Anyway it sounds familiar yet distinct enough. Not going to go so far into reviewing the music since that is not what I’m here for today. Simply put, Good choice of OP. Alright, moving alonggggg.. I do not really like the ED so i shall not waste my time to paste the youtube embed for it. Go find out yourself.

The first episode really is a mind fuck with things happening and things happened and things did not happened and things happened. I know it sounds confusing but thats what you get if you watched the first episode. Or at least thats how i felt. In fact, my head hurts so much that i almost wanted to give up watching it. Thankfully i did not. Because after getting pass the first episode, the following 11 was pretty easy relatively, [update 3 hours after drafting this post | so i decided to continue watching now that I’m in episode 16,  WHY DID I DO THAT FOR?????? So far the newest is episode 18? ARGHH!!!! | end]. I’m just glad that when it first aired, i did not followed it. If i did, i would be looking forward to every releases screaming in pain if it even arrived 1 second later. Not going to spoil your fun of watching it but if you so insist,  here are some blogs regarding steins;gate

If you want to, you can also search within my anime blog RSS feeds here : http://www.google.com/reader/bundle/user%2F01680764681344175067%2Fbundle%2FAnimes%20blog%20%7C%20to%20read

*Another bonus* , i did not pick this for any reason, it was the first few search results that pop out when i did a search on my Greader, this is a  podcast that talked about steins;gate , http://www.anime-pulse.com/2011/07/31/episode-288-steinsbastard/

Anyways, what I’m really interested about the show isn’t really the show. Do not get me wrong, the show is fucking interesting but what I’m after is the “logic” or the “reference” behind it. For it seems “real” enough to make me google for this particular reference called, “John Titor“. Yes “John Titor” from the year 2036. Interestingly, this shows follows very closely on “John titor”. If you have watched your fair share of Sci-fi shows/anime/movies that deals with Time travel, you will find some terms familiar. Now, I am not a physics guy so there are stuff which i do not understand sometimes as well. But there’s a few fact about this show’s reference. Let me list the real stuff  or at least existed in our world line that was used in the anime ,

There are a few locations mentioned in the anime and I’m sure for those that are new to “anime” or “japan culture”. You could be wondering if this town called “Akihabara” exist ? YES IT DOES. BEING NEW TO ANIME DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE EXCUSE TO NOT BELIEVE THAT A GREAT PLACE LIKE AKIHABARA ONLY EXISTS IN ANIME! Do a quick 0.83 second “Akihabara” in google you can get tons of info, i’ll just do a quick one and paste one or two.

Also lately I been using Google+ and you can see my mug shot, so if you’re in tasmania, hobart and you happen to recognise me, do say hi. Also been neglecting my twitter.com/otakurean account as well =(. Simply because tweetdeck been giving me issues and i cant be fucked into using the site itself. I mean it has been around far longer than google+ but it still has the same instability issues. Google+ works really well and I’m always in Gmail so this is a win-win i guess. If you’re on it, add me if you want to. However i will not add you back if your profile isn’t really filled out.

In other news, I been watching a lot of Revision 3 now simply because my ISP, internode , mirrors them on their unmetered servers as value-added services to customers, so at least with my pathetic 60GB quota, i get to watch revision 3 shows without any harm to my quota!~~ Ahh feels good to post something on my blog again after a while.. I guess the break away helps to refresh me. And by break i meant real life. I’m still thinking about the idea of doing a podcast show. Again nothing plan and also i may or may not commit to it. I can’t even commit to writing posts. Maybe i really need a D-mail to send to my past and tell him to wake the fuck up and get posts done!.

Lastly, before i end this. Toriko been really slow on releases, so i stopped blogging them regularly but i will do them again when i have at least 6 more episodes. so i can schedule them =P. See you all, stay cool and stay warm. (winter here by the way).

Today is Animal Planet !

Well today we continue the fight to show you a special report, Battlewolf animal planet channel. Yes , battlewolf , an ancient beast that took down monsters in the ancient world. =/. So in a way, i’m disappointed with the lack of “food-of-the-day” but at least there’s enough fight to keep me on the edge today. Also another creepy monster appeared today and the fuck it did to chief????????

Today we ate ! … something?

So we have a specail Toriko burger but that’s not important at all. Because this just a little snack for him. What is toriko going to eat? Or what monsters are attempting to eat him ? We’ll find out when ….. TORIKO FIGHTS THEM ! com’on place ya’ bets..

Been watching for like 7 episode of toriko. I don’t know if i should be glad or not that there isn’t “Meal of the day” every episode. But so far, i recall there’s only 3 meal of the day? pffffffffff. But there’s always random food island of the day. I guess i can live with that.

Today we eat puffer sashimi!

Finally after two episodes of not eating… Toriko and gang are finally rewarded with…. PUFFER SASHIMI!. I once had a real fugu when i was in japan a few years back. Man it was no where near what Toriko and gang described the puffer whale as 😦 perharps real life isn’t as pretty as anime.

Having said that, after toriko and gang had a nice meal.

Yup this dude appears. Who or what is it ?

Today we ate nothing AGAIN!

So last week , we are left with a cliff hanger. This week too ! THE FUCK IS THIS!!! MOREOVER IS THE SAME MONSTER!! WHICH TOOK THEM 1 EPISODE TO KILL! This is killing me. Can’t other gourmet hunters kill such monsters? right they cant….. I like their demons though. Although i don’t know why the demons appear and for what use do they have, i guess is just for the scare factor?..

Today there’s nothing to eat!

Sometimes you just cant eat and eat and eat. Actually i have no idea nor am i in any hurry to find out how many episode there is to toriko. But so far, toriko eat red croc and rainbow fruit. I guess even the author need time to rest. So this episode, nothing much is being eaten. Rather we are left with a cliff hanger. But i guess with 2 heavenly kings , this big ass monster shouldn’t be a problem at all. You know what, i think Wednesday will be Toriko posting day. T3T i’m just glad i didn’t need to have dinner prior to this episode.
