Since when have we ever known Tsunade's last name was Koichi? If anything, wouldn't it be like Senju or something? But yeah, just thought I'd bring this up, because her last name is still unknown information and yet here it says that it's Koichi (which I think is completely wrong)

The title says it all, folks. If you want to meet one of the featured guests of Bomb Should Have A Face, you can look for me at Otakon 2009 from July 17-19 in sunny Baltimore, MA. Just PM me if you want to meet up! And for those of you who aren't able to come, I'll try and see if I can post some tweets and/or blogs from the show.

It's going to be amazing, so stay tuned for more details!

To all that read this I am leaving Animevice. I was banned due to copy and pasting info on some pages or accidentally adding doubles of pages. I don't know they didn't exactly tell me the reasons. But to all my friends I will be at comicvine if you wish to speak with me. Last words I joined this website to help make a better encyclopedia for the anime industry. Since I was two I have been watching animes and always wanting to find info on new shows I have seen that no one else has found but of course there are not very many sources for some shows. But one day I found that place and I eventually get banned forever from that website I was searching for. Well who cares anymore it seems that no one will miss me but who cares I came I saw I conquered. But alas they could at least delete my profile page I mean that pisses me off that it will be here till the end of time, and every time I come to look here I will see it laughing in my face at my failure.

It's a trick question.

Characters aren't moe in and of themselves, it is the fan reaction to the character that is moe.

Take a magical girl show like Shugo Chara or Sakura:  I (as a creepy, middle aged fan with a black heart, an utter lack of morals, and ill intent apparent in my eye) might feel 'moe' toward a young heroine in this type of show, but it's nominal intended audience of, you know, girls  can instead follow the action 'A' plot, the conspiracy 'B' plot, the romantic sub-plot, and the comedy without thinking evil, evil thoughts during every transformation sequence.

Anime in more recent years (particulalry those anime derived from ero games) decided to skip the plot, action, and characterizaton BS and cut to the moe.  I can't defend this.

That said:  a 'moe' feeling can be a brotherly affection toward a little sister, a desire to see her grow up strong and proud and stand on her own.  (one translation of moe is 'sprouting' so there's your nuturing aspect)

Of course I'm a complete degenerate so even this fig leaf of an 'excuse' doesn't apply to me.  Hide yer daughters, mate, or your wives for that matter, else this leering ojisan will seduce them right out from under your watch.

So my last post, I mentioned I was planning two cosplays for Sugoi Con in October. I didn't reveal the second because I was waiting on accessory to arrive that would make the outfit more complete and obvious.  The accessory came in yesterday, and I went to the mall today to purchase one more accessory.

 So now I present (coincidentally on the same day as the newest episode of K-ON! is released) : Mio Akiyama from K-ON!
Please don't say you are lazy...
Please don't say you are lazy...

Poofy Black Lace Skirt
Poofy Black Lace Skirt
This is a "Found Item Coslay" as almost everything is already made. The skirt I bought last year at Halloween for a Gothic Lolita outfit from my favorite local consignment type shop called Queen of Rags. It  was mighty expensive ($50) but well worth it for the large amount of tulle, lace, fabric and work that went into making it.This skirt is like five pounds and like twenty layers (exaggerating here, but you guys get the point). Plus it can be reused for a variety of cosplays or Gothic Lolita outfits.

The top I've had for a very long time, still debating whether I'm going to use it or make another.  The arm warmers I bought off ebay for $8.99 and the tights from Hot Topic for $8. The shoes I bought earlier this year from the shoe store I work at to wear to a conference. They cost about $12-15 with my discount.

Tights, shoes, and arm warmers
Tights, shoes, and arm warmers
Things still left to obtain or make:
  • Long, dark brown wig with bangs
  •   Mini top hat with red ribbon
  • Rose/flower bouqet
  • Cane
  • Black sash
  • Add some extra elastic in the back to make the skirt tighter so it won't slide down.

Obviously not going to carry around the rock band guitar. I would trip over the cord constantly. Then I would get tired of holding it and hand it off to Baku to carry around or take back to the hotel room. Plus it's not a lefty guitar. :p So that's all for now. I'll keep updating with more pictures as I get all the stuff together.

It took 5 men to take down a man who really hurt someone.

It takes a Judge to take down a man who did nothing but see...

Are you ready to go to Jail for what you see?

Is street justice the only true justice?

One must wonder why when the world became one man lost his freedom for good...

When I think of Moe usually one character comes to mind.. Moena Shinguuji of the Angel Blade series. She is fairly small and petite and very very cute and shy you just want to snuggle her. If you take out the "NA" out of her name it spells "Moe"
She is the prototype for Moe Characters in my mind:)

You go Moena!;)
You go Moena!;)

It's like I'm laughing and crying at the same time. I mean, how in the world can a company mess up this badly? FUNimation, pull your shit together! As if leaving One Piece 403 unsecured wasn't bad enough, now you're letting us have Phantom 10 a wee bit early?

It's interesting though, Nyaatorrents decided to remove the Phantom 10 torrent not long after it was posted. I guess the guy running the public tracker chickened out, in a sense. Luckily, files that are made available on the internet spread like wildfire, so I was able to obtain a copy of it from those that were fast enough. Hooray for automated BT dumps!  Don't worry, Lance, the episode was downloaded to a TrueCrypt container, if you know what I mean!

Man, too many fans have expressed their opinions on this matter, so at this point I can only sit back and laugh at everyone still wasting their time on this topic. Even John Oppliger posted his thoughts about Toei's boneheadedness. Priceless! It's like FUNimation self-imploded by alienating one of their biggest Japanese partners (GONZO is soon to be put in a casket, I believe), and the way things stand, I wouldn't be surprised if all of this is just the beginning of the end for the R1 industry.

Some fans accused ANN of blowing the two incidents out of proportion, neglecting the fact that FUNimation is ANN's last anime-themed advertiser aside from RightStuf. Maybe FUNimation isn't that important anymore or maybe, just maybe, ANN came back to its senses after years of the American anime industry booming and is actually doing honest journalism that's miles better than what we get from the declining anime blogosphere. And I'm saying this as someone who's been very critical towards ANN's past practices. I wonder how FUNi feels about them now as they pretty much made the general fandom aware of their level of incompetence.

Seriously, how can you repeat the same mistake twice. In a way, this new interaction between pirates and distributors is introducing a unique blend of the warez scene model that the innocent pocky-framed glasses anime fan isn't used to. At least I can't believe this shit is actually happening.

Well summers here, and in honor of Tom the Toonami robot (god bless his soul) I plan on becoming as active a member on AV as possible, maybe rp'ing a bit (I have some experience, but as well as that I will be posting some pieces of a story I'm working on, now the grammar will be bad, however I want opinions on comments descriptions, and yes even my most common grammar problems.

Now, You''l be seeing the rough draft of the first chapter coming up tonight, so take a look at it, I won;t be posting all of the story, jsut the forst few chapters to gather opinions, and those interested in really helping me out can take a look at all the chapters of it as I go along.

Also, I was on the recent Vice Squad, and I plan on (if they have room) coming on the podcast as much as possible, well.....or until they kick me out. Nonetheless check out the podcast, Lunarmoth and moonstorm are great guys, so even if I'm not on it check it out every week.

That's it for now, see you all later.
