Blimp: Granblue With Raitzeno

Blimp: Granblue With Raitzeno

This is why we can’t have nice things.

(Actual in-game dialogue, just not from the player character.)

Blimp: Naka-Kon

Blimp: Naka-Kon

I’m here at Naka Kon! Thankfully, I am attending as a civilian, not a guest chef.

Most of the stuff actually starts in about 15 minutes, but the badge lines are open, and surprisingly painless. (The line to get into the shopping hall, on the other hand, has a MASSIVE queue.) I’ll make a proper post later tonight (when I’m not fighting my phone’s autocorrect), but for now, just know that...

Breaking: Lawsuit Aftermath + Kotaku Acquisition Details

Breaking: Lawsuit Aftermath + Kotaku Acquisition Details

As many of you are aware, our parent site Gawker recently lost a rather large lawsuit against Hulk Hogan over its refusal to take down a sex tape of him even after a court order. The judgment came down for a ridiculous mount of money compared to the site’s actual worth, and many of us have been left wondering exactly what’s going to happen to Gawker and its sub-blogs.

However, some of that...

Blimp: AniTAY's School Festival Class Play

Blimp: AniTAY's School Festival Class Play

The next class over is arguing over who gets what role in The Baka Guide to Musicals. Ganbare, losers. You’ll never be motemote like us.

OP/ED of the Day #115: Habataku Mirai

OP/ED of the Day #115: Habataku Mirai

Title: Habataku Mirai | Artist: Eufonius | Show: Futakoi

Description: This is the opening theme for Futakoi, a harem show where every single love interest is a twin. There’s 6 different pairs of identical twin girls (that we know of) living in the same town, and damn near ALL of them want to jump the protagonist. All these twins in the same city is a pretty big contrivance to...

OP/ED A Day Season 2: Twister

OP/ED
A Day Season 2: Twister

Title: Twister | Artist: Sawa | Game:The World Ends With You

Description: Since Kinksy is in Japan right now, living the dream, I’ve taken his Day. In his honor, I’ve picked out the opening theme from The World Ends With You, an incredible action-RPG that was honestly of the best games in the entire DS library. It made full use of literally every input method the DS was capable of,...

Grill la Grill: an Anime Food Truck

Grill la Grill: an Anime Food Truck

So we were discussing restaurants earlier today and food trucks came up. I had a much worse name for one (Two Grills One Truck), before jonuiuc came up with Grill La Grill, which prompted me to start coming up with an Anime Menu. Here’s what I have so far, and it’s a pretty well-rounded selection:

APPETIZERS

Mawaru Poutinedrum
Quinoa’s Journey
Buffalowingatari
Tem-PU-Ra Darkness
Naan Genesis...

OP/ED of the Day #205: Loosey

OP/ED
of the Day #205: Loosey

Since Engrish Month was my idea, I’m doubling down on it with perhaps one of the most egregious examples ever.

Title: Loosey | Artist: THE STRiPES | Show: Bakuretsu Tenshi (Burst Angel)

Description: This song is probably the best part of the show. (Why do I have so many like that...?) I barely remember anything of the plot. It’s a bunch of female badasses, and there might have been...

Japan Flubs Ecchi Ban: Adult-on-Adult Outlawed

Japan Flubs Ecchi Ban: Adult-on-Adult Outlawed

In a somewhat puzzling move, the Japanese government has signed a new bill into law which outlaws the creation, publication, and distribution of licentious media (generally referred to as ‘ecchi’ content) depicting two or more non-minor partners.

Yes, non-minors.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe issued a press release today detailing the bizarre new law and its consequences, which include fines for...

Shakugan no Shana Season 3 Announced

Shakugan no Shana Season 3 Announced

J.C. Staff just announced that Shakugan no Shana is finally getting a third entry in the series, 11 years after season 2 ended. While many expected the series to die in ignominy after the open ending of the second season and over a decade without an announcement, the recent success of A Certain Magical Index’s revival seems to have spurred the studio into continuing another old...

Naka-Kon Trip Report Day 2+3: Ups And Downs

Naka-Kon Trip Report Day 2+3: Ups And Downs

Hey again, everyone, Raitzeno here with the rest of my Naka-Kon report, such as it is. Normally I stay a lot longer and take a lot more pictures, but my time at the con got cut a bit short this year due to some unforeseen issues.

Saturday is normally the big, exciting day at Naka-Kon, and for most people, this one was no different. Cosplay contests, video game tournaments, and a boatload of...

Naka-Kon Trip Report Day 1: Benimaru and the JETs

Naka-Kon Trip Report Day 1: Benimaru and the JETs

...Okay, yeah, that reference may be a little dated. Anyway, this is Raitzeno, just home from day 1 of Naka-Kon, an anime convention in Overland Park, Kansas (in the Kansas City metropolitan area, since many of you have probably never heard of it). Today was basically a scouting day for me and my fellow panelist, Protonstorm; we weren’t repping Ani-TAY with our branded t-shirts yet, just...

The Broly Rises: The Ani-TAY Review

The Broly Rises: The Ani-TAY Review

This is Raitzeno, back from a food coma with another delicious Ani-TAY Review. Today’s target is a fantastic little movie I’m sure none of you have ever heard anyone talk about: The Broly Rises. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, which should be everyone, TBR is a new movie set in the Dragon Ball Super timeline.

The Broly Rises features a brand new character nobody has ever heard...

Blimp: A Moment of Zen

Blimp: A Moment of Zen

A haiku from everyone’s ‘favorite’ chef:
So sweet yet so sad / A box holding one last gift: / The final donut.
This has been Zen With Raitzeno. Good night.


Get it? RaitZENo? No? Fuck you too. I left you a ‘surprise’ in the fridge. >:|

Blimp: This is how spoilers are removed

I was pointing out that grinding can be made much more efficient if you know what you’re doing, and realized the results screen had spoilers. Spoilers: I fixed it.

Octopath Traveler: Multiple Protagonist Disorder

Octopath Traveler: Multiple Protagonist Disorder

Let me get this out of the way first: I really, really like Octopath. I’m enjoying the hell out of it, and getting more than my money’s worth out of the purchase - and I got the big silly collector’s edition.

Now, there’s been a lot of analysis and discussion of Octopath Traveler recently, but they all seem to make similar claims. The most common seems to be a total lack of interaction between...

Blimp: SMT Dx2 Liberators launches TONIGHT

Blimp: SMT Dx2 Liberators launches TONIGHT

Surprise! The client is available for download on the Google Play store RIGHT NOW, and servers go live in less than half an hour. CBT players just need a quick update on the client software, and supposedly we’re keeping our data from it. I sure as hell hadn’t heard anything solid about the release date, so this is a nice surprise for me!

SMT Dx2: Liberation Impressions

SMT Dx2: Liberation Impressions

Had I known the beta was going to end that fast, I would have been better prepared to write this (or, indeed, I might have known I was going to write it before it ended). But much like in most of the SMT series, shit happened I wasn’t ready for, and we got wiped, but we should be able to load our save data later. So let’s get crackin’!

I don’t know about the rest of you, but after the signups...

Are you ready to be Liberated?

Are you ready to be Liberated?

Emails have been sent out with links to the closed beta test of Shin Megami Tensei: Liberation Dx2, a new F2P mobile game from ATLUS. Registered users can find a download link in the email, and the servers will fire up Tuesday evening. (Do note that the email contains quite a few formatting and grammatical errors, probably rushed out in a hurry. It still seems to work, and links to the proper...

Blimp: The Sound Of Stupid

Blimp: The Sound Of Stupid

(This is Scully’s fault.)

Hello, Reddit, my old friend

I’ve come to shitpost you again

Because of stalking from a creeper

Who thinks he’s some sort of sleeper

But for an agent, he doesn’t have a brain

He’s merely trained

To speak the sound of stupid

In dead forums I talked alone

Shut-down minds cannot be blown

Beneath the header of a long blog post

What I say is misunderstood by most

And our eyes are...
