Daily Kannagi Updates for 12/15

Sunday, December 14th, 2008

first and foremost, hats off to the anime team for the spoo reference.

Second, weblab.ota has a great flowchart describing what in the world is going on with this whole mess, if you can manage to read the Japanese. I’d love to read it for you, but I have a 10 page paper due in 48 hours.

Finally, the current rumor circulating around the internet around Takenashi’s health is that she fell down a bunch of stairs due to anemia, if this mystery barebones blog site by some light novelist who may or may not be referencing Takenashi when she talks about “U-nyan” is correct. Kind of a stretch, I guess?

From the Creator of CHAINSAW MAID…

Saturday, December 13th, 2008

Nagao Takena, also known as Teienu (ていえぬ), creator of grindhouse claymation gorefests like CHAINSAW MAID has come out with his newest creation, PUSSYCAT! I’m really impressed by this one – the clay figures look great, the camera work is incredible, especially given that its amateur claymation, the soundtrack is completely spot-on, the guy can do no wrong as far as I’m concerned. Also, I just now found out that he premiered PUSSYCAT basically down the street from me 2 weeks ago. ;_____;

anyway, here’s the movie. warning: not work safe

edit: happy 100th post, blog

A note to moe haters

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

You can not stop us.

We have this Kentaro Miura.

You moe now.

Are you afraid?

Death to shonen fighting.

Death to manliness.

Idolm@ster is great.

Realpost: Kentaro Miura, author of Berserk, has admitted in the latest issue of Young Animal that he’s very sad that his favorite series of Idolm@ster-related videos on nico are finally ending, so he picked up the game and a 360 for home play. Apparently he’s talked about Miku in the past, but I missed that.

Incidentally, Berserk goes back on break next issue.


(this guy does a funnier writeup if you can read the japanese)

edit: oh, i forget that sankaku complex reads the same news blogs as me and is up at all hours, welp

No Zun at C75

Sunday, December 7th, 2008

Maybe I’m the last person to know this or something, but from the looks of it, Zun will not be showing up at C75. This means that all the other Touhou-related lines will be even longer. :ARGH:

With all the crazy news and c75 stuff and anime/manga announcements (Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii etc etc manga adaptation!) popping up today I keep thinking “man I should make a post” but then realize that I should spend more time studying for this test I’m taking tomorrow that I’m going to fail.

But then this showed up on my Katoyuu feed:
