TSUKKAME PURRAIDOOOOO!!!! TSUKKAME SAKKUSESSSS!!

prad3 director twittter hiro g reco mask

A few days ago Pretty Rhythm director modified his Hiro happy birthday avatar to this.

prad2 ayami g reco mask  エボラ出血レズ twiter avatar

A Pretty Rhythm fan on twitter copied him and started doing it with his/her avatar too. I hope it becomes a trend and everyone does it with other characters too.

I still haven’t seen episodes 4-5 of G Reco. I still haven’t seen PriPara 15-17 either but unlike G Reco I ‘m not in a hurry to.
I sure hope you’re watching G Reco and that you’re not one of these impatient kids  going “baaaw why they still haven’t explained everything in three episodes and aren’t explaining things twice or more along with flashbacks, this show sucks baaaw” oh and also: “there must be a meaning in every scene/word and I didn’t get it!! What did this scene mean!!!”

Pretty Rhythm news 19/10/2014 edition

prad3 kazuki hiro kouji buying stuff artist odeco

I hope there’s a OTR OVA with them hanging together and buying stuff at the supermaket soon. Other new Odeco pics can be found on her twitter. Too lazy to save and reup them here today.

There was a puniket sponsored/organized/whatever how it’s related to puniket event called the Pretty Rhythm doujin event SHT2014 thing the 23rd of September.
There was some new doujins sold there, along with already released ones too. Irua also sold a new Cosmo Sophie doujin there along with reprints of older ones.
Next Puniket Pretty Rhythm doujin event is the 9th of November. info here.

I rapidly checked and didn’t find any info or report bits on the Ookubo Rumi/Mia talk show from September I mentioned in a previous post. I guess the 100 people who attended got better things to do than chatting about how good it was on the net. Haven’t checked twitter yet though. Got not time for now.

prince animage 2014 autumn cover

Prince Animage 2014 Autumn got a new OTR interview and pics.

akesaka satomi esdeath cardboardyugioh arc-V ayu voiced by Akesaka Satomi

Akesaka Satomi (Kanon & Chae Kyoung) tweeted yesterday that “her chest hurt for some reason”. Ensuing funny jokes like “it’s growing, want me to rub it for you” etc. These days she’s voicing Esdeath in Akame Ga Kill. She seems to like it. She’s also voicing a little girl called Ayu in Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V and she seems to like it too.

Pretty Rhythm’s Director Hishida Masakazu said on Twitter he’s working on Gundam G no Reconguista as 演出/production(basically make the episode according to the script and storyboard and check if it follows them correctly). The episode(s) he works on isn’t airing anytime soon though, so he said to watch it every week. That pic above was posted on the official G Reco twitter, staff people during a dubbing session. Guy with the phone on foreground is Pretty Rhythm director .
Tomino looks boss.

Why Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future is the best show of 2012-2013

prad2 17 shi yoon king of jungle

This pic alone should be enough to convince you.

Because yeah I just realized I never wrote a final impressions post for DMF.  This is more a joke&3615 ma life post than actual final impressions though. Back when Aurora Dream ended I wrote both a joke post and a serious one. I didn’t do one specifically for Rainbow Live but I blogged the show weekly so it’s not necessary. I’ve been a bit stressed recently and when I am, I rewatch scenes of my favorite shows. It happened to be DMF today. Man just how perfect this show is. Everything starting the end of the second cour is so materpiece level. Episode 38 gives me shivers whenever I rewatch it. I lost my composure so hard when it first aired. Plus, it was just before New Year break in Japan, so back when it was airing we actually had to wait two weeks before the next episode. I kept saying myself that if the show ended there, it would have been one of the best bad ends in cartoons ever. Everything is so hammy, so ridiculous, so hilarious, so overplayed and yet still so dramatic, sad and horrific. I have a big no spoiler policy so I won’t say anything more. One of the great things about DMF though is that there’s even more crazy after that, and it continues that way all the way to the end. This is why Rainbow Live, while still being best show of 2013-2014, really disappointed me with it’s ending. If you’re reading this and have been watching DMF, you’ll see it soon for yourself anyway. Subs are almost there. AD and RL are great and masterpieces too but DMF really is the greatest among the three. The only flaws of DMF are that it’s not subbed fully properly yet and that you need to watch AD first. And I guess the bullcrap at the beginning. But the third and last cour way way way makes up for it.
Gonna go back to studying now. Or more like sleep. Time goes so fast when you have fun, rewatching anime scenes is so dangerous.

10/10 is Hiro’s birthday

prad3 director twitter hiro bday 2014

They did a small event. There was a form linked on the avex RL goods site, you had to fill it and put a message for Hiro and then you’d get two new illustrations. It was one day only and it’s past midnight in Japan now, so the link is already dead and I didn’t get to check it myself. One of the illustrations is probably the one director put as his twitter avatar(pic above)

prad3 hiro bday one day event page

That’s how the page looked before it got taken down. A cool thoughtful person on Twitter took a screen of it.Check PRR_HIRO on twitter. There’s fanart and tons of funny things.
In other news, someone translated and upped one of irua’s OtoxBell doujin on sadpanda. I am totally not shamed in saying that I made an account 3 years ago only to check regularly if people would up pretty rhythm doujins.
Anyway. I’m still planning to translate the interviews in the guidebooks. Planning to do the RL guidebook first, then PRASS guidebook, then the visual book, which I recently bought.  I started translating the interviews in the RL book during summer vacation but I restarted uni now and kinda busy. Not sure when I’ll finish. Maybe around December.
Also, the paper quality of the visual book is pretty bad compared to the other two books. I guess that’s how all books in the “gakken mook series” are. Didn’t had time to try reading it yet. According to the Pretty Rhythm wiki it “contains some really interesting info about what might happen to the Prism Stars ten years after the events of the anime. ” so it should be cool.

I wish this was a post about Infinite Stratos

As the islamic state guys keeps killing people, most French medias keep their usual disgusting attitude of associating Islam with terrorism. Some said Muslims in France aren’t denouncing IS enough. They also only focus on Christians and other minorities’ suffering, as if the Muslims in Iraq and other countries are still going around their daily lives peacefully.
After that poor guy Hervé Gourdel got kidnapped and killed in Algeria, french right party newspaper le figaro actually asked in an online survey “Do you think Muslims in France are sufficiently denouncing the actions of Daesh?”. The survey got removed a few hours after. Twitter campaigns like the notinmyname thing unknowingly participated in this too. It’s all fueling the fake belief that if you’re a Muslim and not saying you don’t agree with IS, then you support them by default. That’s like saying every Christian is responsible of pedophilia cases in the church and need to go on TV and say “hey it’s not written you should rape kids in the Bible”!! Or it’s like holding all of the Jewish community responsible of the criminals acts the government of Israel is doing. Or it’s like asking apologies from Buddhists because so-called “Buddhists” are currently massacring the Rohingyas in Myanmar. Or it’s like saying everyone playing Kancolle supports what Japan did to it’s neighboring countries during WW2.
If one think otherwise, they don’t know it yet, but they’ve already been brainwashed.
(I really wanted to put this joke in and used this occasion to make my first webm myself)
