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).


Spring 2011 – first look without watching

Firstly, let me thank all of those that made my post happen, Thank you. Secondly I am a lazy person, I must admit. Seriously speaking, reading blog post on anime prior to watching is easier on the bandwidth and also time. Everyone has the same 24hours, how would you use it is up to you. Instead of I watch so you don’t need to watch, this is i read so you don’t need to read but after reading you have a easier idea to decide if you should watch it or not.

Yes, i may quote out of context, i may quote just for the juicy bits but does it matter ? Don’t worry about me leaching off your screenshot. I’m not. There’s no image here. If you are looking for image, this is not your site.

Anyway today, we look at 4 anime that are currently airing.

Ao No Exorcist

doesn’t have a harem nor the raging hormones for any pair of breasts on legs, but is a misfit kid grown up in a church environment with a subsequently strong moral code – KIIRAGI of randomc.net

There are some “chibi” moments which brings out the light heartedness to balance out the story. The animation is top notch too!!! Definitely following this!! – Nakayo of Yasashii Sekai

Hmm from the looks of it, Harem lovers need not apply. You can’t see any thing from the damn trailer but the screenshot over at randomc.net looks yummy. Would this anime be a watch for me? I think so. I probably might. I still have Madoka backlog though. Ahh… I still have highschool of the dead and Kore wa zombie desu ka to watch too… Batching this instead.


if you could sit through any season of Index, this is a piece of cake. – KIIRAGI of randomc.net

Steins;Gate seems to be a really clever anime, one I can’t just let me slip me by just because it’s a bit fragmented. – Hime of Metanorm.net

Even after reading, i don’t really know what is going on. But the screenshots do look yummy. Yes will watch. Speaking of which, i should start on Index as well. I really like Railgun’s OP and DDR X2 has that song too which was really nice to play but my personal favorite is Super Driver.

Deadman Wonderland

we get this adorable cheerful piece of moe, shiro. who turns out to be nothing like how I thought she’ll be. – Cidz of Chocolate Syrupy Waffles

So far though, it’s fast-paced, hard-hitting, unnerving, and completely engrossing; I have high hopes. – PROOOF of randomc.net

I’m not sure about you but personally the manga is kinda good. Would i have high expectations for this? Yes. Would i watch it? Maybe. I think i would watch this by batch instead of weekly.

C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control

It’s bizarre and ima­gin­at­ive, with intel­li­gent dia­logue and quick wit with some incred­ibly inter­est­ing ideas that I really want to see it explore fur­ther. – Scamp of The Cart Driver

I didn’t really know what exactly I was getting into before this episode, since the subject matter was unusual, but the potential is exciting. PROOOF of randomc.net

On first looks of the screenshot, i thought i saw Charlie and Chocolate Factory : Sex and demon edition. The top hat purple hair dude looks like willy wonka, seriously!. Oh from the looks of the screenshot, THEY CAN TRANSFORM USING A CREDIT CARD. Also this feels like a Jigoku Shoujo as well. I would watch because this show feels so familiar yet so different.

Of course there’s more than 4 anime, i only chose to do 4 because is so much easier than doing ALL of it. So would i do more similar post like this ? I’m not sure. But i’ll see how things go. The idea of Posting once a day is easy to do. But really posting once a day is hard. I guess it’ll be good if i have more writers to join me. I mean after all i paid for the domain and host, I should put this site into good use damnit!. Anyone wants to guest write or simply join team otakurean ? Let me know via Contact or @otakurean over at twitter.

Here’s a bonus :

IF Spring 2011 looks like it ain’t your cup of tea, hop over the thecartdriver.com time machine and back into the swinging 80’s of  Summer1988 !
