amane~ ^_^ (家庭教師のおねえさん) - click for gelbooru


Hey there folks think I’m pretty overdue for an update here ^^;;  Curious why the updates have dried up?  Want to know what I’m up to? (well, normally i wouldn’t be so bold as to suggest people would actually be interested in that but hell, that’s one of the main reasons for twitter, no? ^^;;)  Read on for some enlightenment and even some anime blabberings if that’s your cup of tea.

Angel Beats!

I have yet to find a format for these anime posts that i’m happy with so in the meantime… here’s some rambling steam of conscious stuff to help me come to closure with this series ^^;  ~major spoilers~

初恋限定 ~ Hatsukoi Limited

ep 4

Well that only took me about a year to complete ^^;;;  Think I watched the first episode around when it first aired and didn’t finish the series until  last week.  Thoughts and spoilers (probably?) to follow~

ep 3

Feeling better, woo!!!  Thought I’d do an anime post for a change and since that’s what I’ve been up to.  Recently just finished sorakake… trying to figure out what the heck it was all about ^^;;  spoilers about, but it finished airing awhile ago, so i assume not an issue for most?

bakemonogatari ~ 化物語

Posted by meronpan on October 20, 2009


Got quite a few recommendations for this one so I was surprised by dialog after dialog after dialog.  ‘course don’t get me wrong – having played my fair share of galge I’m not biased against that or anything.  Rather, was surprised that others weren’t ^^;  pantsu screenshot incoming, don’t say i didn’t warn you.

夏のあらし! ~ Natsu no Arashi!

Posted by meronpan on October 1, 2009


Do you get exercise regularly?  It’s been on and off with me… and specifically most of the past year… off orz.  However!  These past 3 weeks I’ve finally gotten back to a daily routine which means daily anime again (watch while working out) ^^ 一石二鳥!(isseki nichou == killing two birds w/1 stone).  Daily anime means finally finishing off some series and that brings me to natsu no arashi ^^;

Endless Eight

Posted by meronpan on August 19, 2009

I think I’m in the minority, but I loved it ^^;  Guess that’s just me living the yotsuba way, “Enjoy Everything”.  ^^;


episode 12

Could they have used those episodes to more effectively dole out haruhi goodness?  Well, certainly.  Was it an utter disappointment to countless fans across the globe?  No doubt.  Was there anyone involved who actually supported the insanity?  Not the seiyuu nor many others it seems.

Saki too moe? Try Akagi

Posted by meronpan on June 3, 2009

I’m waiting for this spurt of mahjong interest to wear off, but in the meantime I’m still obsessed ^^;  As such, here’s a post about 2 things – Akagi and a closer look at the scoring rules.  First off, Akagi.


Those looking for oppai, pettanko, nekomimi, bishoujo or whatever other moe need not apply.  We’re talking about old men, yakuza, gambling, thugs, and life & death situations mixed in with mahjong.

If that whets your appetite, I think you’ll be very pleased with the offerings of this series.  Focusing very heavily on the actual game play, I take back anything I ever said about Saki having a decent amount of mahjong play in it ^^;  Here we’ve got lots of strategy revolving around the opponents’ psyche, discarded tiles, choosing which tile to discard to maximize your potential waits without dealing into a ron… good stuff ^^

Short Skirts

Posted by meronpan on May 25, 2009

If I heard correctly, Saki is all embarrased and such about her maid outfit in episode 4…  Specifically she comments twice about the skirt length.  Well, let’s take a look at her preferred seifuku skirt length…


And I say preferred because hisa & mako wear their seifuku plenty long.  In conclusion, saki is a liar.  She loves short skirts :P

Finally decided to learn more about mahjong and figure out what the heck was going on in 咲 (saki).  Do you know the rules?  The Japanese rules?  Thought I’d throw together a little summary of my research for those who are curious but haven’t gotten around to it yet :P
