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 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 Director said on Twitter he’s working on Gundam G no Reconguista as 演出/production.  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)

Lost Technology, free game with Agahari illustrations

アガハリ artist post slayers amelia


I discovered this game a few weeks ago. It was released in May 2014. Agahari is a pretty well known artist, and she posted tons of illustrations she made for the game on her Pixiv account, so it’s weird I haven’t seen any discussion about this game in English. Maybe I haven’t looked hard enough. I’m writing this post as I hope I can spark interest in it. (Not like I have billions of readers though, I guess something like 20?). The other reason I’m writing this is, I can’t run the game, it keeps crashing after I launch it. Even after switching to Japanese locale. If someone can help I’ll be happy. Here’s the game’s official website along with download link. You need to use a japanese proxy to download the game.

Judging from the screenshots and the description on the official site(RPG+RTS) it feels a lot like Dragon Force on Saturn. I really need to actually try this out someday. It’s one of the games I knew about ever since I was a kid and yet actually never played myself. I wonder if it’s as good as games magazines like Console + made it look like. I forgot when my bro and I stopped checking out Console +. I think a few years after we got an internet connection so around 2002-2003. Console + is dead now like a lot of paper magazines in the world. Times sure have changed.

Sarkozy’s return and stuff

dress artist twitter saiun_nagisa


He announced his candidacy for presidency of the right party, and well presidency over the country. It’s incredible there’s still French citizens willing to support him. Then again I’m not surprised there’s people that stupid in my country. Beside the fact that his presidency was a disaster, they’re all forgetting the EIGHT judicial cases he’s involved in. Not one or two, eight. That’s the number of pilots of Gakusaver.

Most of those are about how his party made fake bills everywhere to finance his 2012 presidential campaign. Then there’s how Gaddafi may have financed his 2007 presidential campaign(what I meant by Sarkozy backstabbed Gaddafi in my previous post), how he falsified popularity surveys, how he tried to buy some judge so he locks out some evidence in a case his name appeared in, etc. Most of these cases are still in investigation and are actually ongoing. The only reason he wanna become president again is so he doesn’t go to jail. It always makes me laugh when his supports says that the judges are lashing out at him and that they’re not considering him as a normal citizen. If they were considering him as a normal person he’d already be in jail for a while now.

Another surprising thing is some of the politicians who decided to support him for his return. One of them is Dominic De Villepin, from the right party, who used to be prime minister from 2005 to 2007.  The same man who always rivaled against Sarkozy, and who also publicly accused Sarkozy of backstabbing him when he found himself under investigation back in 2010 with the Clearstream case. Now he’s saying Sarkozy “has changed”. It’s kinda sad how politicians sometimes put the past aside just for their own gain. He knows he’ll get a good spot in the government if Sarkozy becomes president again in 2017. Villepin is also not stupid and is one of the few politicians here who said the truth about islamic state, saying it”s “the monstrous child of the arrogant political actions of USA and EU countries” and that “western countries still haven’t learned about Afghanistan”. Really sad he’s aligning himself with Sarkozy.
