There was an official "most moe" character of the year poll that's been going on in an site called Saimoe that went annual since starting out as a thread in an random 2Channel thread (an Japanese version of 4Chan as presumed) and boy, was it crazy this time. Many characters were entered, but at the top 16, there were some real contenders. Here were the semifinalists and finalist...

Semi-Finalist #2: Kyouko Sakura (Madoka Magica)

Finalist: Sayaka Miki (Madoka Magica)
Most Moe Character of 2013: Madoka Kaname (Madoka Magica)

Here were the other contestants from the poll and the bracket results:

Most of the Madoka Magica Main Characters ended up in the Top 16 along with some others from more recent anime series and movies, with best friends Madoka and Sayaka having to face each other in the finals after Kyouko and The Mediator were eliminated in the semi-finals. Hopefully next year becomes even crazier, even though this is the craziest that the polls have ever been.

Found this on the web:

There is a Kickstarter project in the UK started by Scott Beadle and his team. Here's the summary of their graphic novel:

Ancient astronauts or ancient aliens, also known as paleocontact hypothesis, are purported intelligent extra terrestrial beings said to have visited earth in antiquity or prehistory and made contact with humans. Proponents suggest that this contact influenced the development of human cultures, technologies, and religions.

Now, take a good look at the graphic novel images.

Best ending ever..... i guess
Best ending ever..... i guess

As i write this blog about Oreimo's ending i'm pretty sure by now that you know what the ending is already. Hey my fellow vicers ! ARD here to give you my thoughts on the ending of Oreimo 2 and how it affected fans by it's dramatic conclusion.

Oreimo 2 had 13 episodes that aired from April 7 to June 30, 2013. Knowing that the first season had OVA's for the true ending i knew that the 13th episode was not the end of it. Having heard that the next OVA were in August, i decided to wait for it's release. Then finally, the 3 episodes were shown during OTAKON 2013 on August 9, 2013 the having release worldwide on August 18. Me not knowing this, I was lucky to watch it when a friend of mine told me that there are 3 episode added. So i rapidly went home and watched this series come to an end. And boy was i surprised about the ending.

My thoughts and opinions about the ending

To tell you the truth, Regardless about all of your opinions about how it ended. I just want to say that you guys have it the wrong way. Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai is actually a masterpiece.

The show is a great example of a true love story is. With little sister's as a trend to Japanese culture to being moe, I see it in the show as symbol of destiny or fate in the show. The show itself is very ironic and also the title of the first season's opening called Irony by "ClariS". At the start of the series, Kyousuke defended Kirino's crazy obsession of eroge from people who think that it is weird for a girl to like Imouto themed eroge that will make her believe that incest is good. This in turn has made actually Kyousuke have a strong bond and closer with Kirino which was her goal from the start. Having a strong relationship. And after playing the eroge that Kirino made him play he actually wanted to do the bird's and the bee's with her.

But Kyousuke couldn't do it because in reality, it's actually disgusting and Hentai logic does not exist. Kirino and Kyousuke are just two roads that would just intersect and cannot come back to where they intersected. He gave up and turned down Ayase, Saori, Kuroneko, Kanako and, his chilhood bestfriend Manami (yes i understand that people are raging because there Ayase, Saori, Kuroneko, Kanako and, Manami X Kyousuke pairings are rejected because of him. ) just to announce to the public that he loves his little sister more than anything. But knowing how society will see it, It's nothing more than a guy's delusion of having his little sister as a lover as a True Route ending that he wants to clear that cannot happen in real life. Just having a fake wedding was just the only option they had since getting married for real is not possible for them to happen.

How did even end this way? They could have just said "let's not continue this anymore" and stop this incestous relationship right away (most likely during the start of the second season). But having much thought about it, there is no other alternative ending to end it. It's already said in the title, It's was already planned to end like that since the very beginning of the story. Even if his childhood bestfriend Manami was there too stop them, it was already to late to begin with.

Oreimo is not a Comedy, Harem and, Romance anime. It's actually falls into one theme that we never even saw coming. Romance-Tragedy. Yes! A Tragedy where all happy endings are just delusions in front of the audience eyes to see, but in reality they all getting scraped away because of the decisions of Kyousuke like Oedipus (sorta just like him).

I think there will never be an anime that could have a deep message like Oreimo and when that time comes, I hope you're prepared to make sacrifices that will make a good story for fans to understand.

just saying

For those who want to see the marriage seen between the two here's the vid below. What about you guys? Do you think that the ending was satisfying or should make another alternative true ending? leave down a comment and thanks for reading. ARD out!

According to Crunchyroll, the company has a limited streaming engagement for 2 weeks to broadcast Oreimo 2's OVA episodes. There will be 3 episodes starting on August 17th at 9pm PST. Aniplex USA will be assisting Crunchyroll with the Oreimo campaign.

The 3 OVA episodes will be limited to a 2-week engagement from the 17th to 31st, with Premium members being able to view all three episodes immediately on the 17th, while free users will be able to view the episodes one week afterwards. In addition, from the 17th to the 31st, OreImo 2 will be open to view for all users except for the following countries: Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Algeria, Monaco, and Tunisia.

For fans who are new to Oreimo, here is a synopsis

Living in the shadow of his prodigious younger sister, Kyousuke Kousaka had a normal lifestyle until he accidentally finds out that Kirino hides a dark and embarrassing secret. In addition to being smart, pretty, and popular; Kirino Kousaka is also an obsessive consumer of anime and eroge (adult computer games). After being assured that Kyousuke is committed to not mock her and keep this concealed from their parents, she starts to share a bit of her world with him. Kirino faces several problems as she tries to keep appearances and balance her exemplary school life with her hobbies. Her brother then becomes a crucial ally while dealing with all the difficulties that lie ahead.

This week I went to Kumoricon 2012, in Vancouver, WA. You may have seen me there wearing an old Whiskey Media T-Shirt. I've given my thoughts on the convention in a Vlog. Enjoy!

As of this recording, I had not read Oreimo Vol. 1. Once I've finished reading it, I'll put up a text review, and add the volume to the Anime Vice wiki. Also, Carl Horn, Dana Lewis and Toren Smith should probably get added to the Anime Vice wiki, due to their role in translating and bringing various anime and manga to the US, back in the old days.

It was announced at the Anime Contents Expo that Oreimo--short for "Ore no Imōto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai" (lit. There's No Way My Little Sister is This Cute)--is getting a second anime season. After the first season, which didn't follow the original light novels all that faithfully, a short series of extra episodes were released online called the "True Route" which branches off before the final episode of the first season and follows the light novels more closely. Whether the second season will follow on from the ending of the first or the True Route is unclear, fans generally want anime to match the source material as closely as possible, but would that be too jarring for viewers who only watched the first season? Or will the True Route be aired first to solve that problem? Or will they just continue on from the True Route regardless? We'll have to wait and see.

For those unfamiliar, Oreimo is about normal high school student Kyousuke and his perfect little sister Kirino, who he discovers is secretly a massive Otaku. The first season can be streamed for free on Crunchyroll.

The announcement was on the first of April, but with the official homepage sticking to it, and the fact that this was announced at an Anime Convention by cast members of the show, it appears this is actually happening. Personally I'm pretty excited, what do you guys think?

I guess with Thanksgiving having come and gone and family obligations to meet it's time to figure out the things that you're thankful for, and for this blog, that means the things that I'm thankful for as far as anime goes. This year's been quite good, and some things upon reflection stand out.

I'm thankful that I don't need to watch bad anime, because there's enough good out there.

Glare all you want, you were part of the worst anime in 2011!
Glare all you want, you were part of the worst anime in 2011!

I've started watching some real stinkers this year, but fortunately there's been enough good anime that I haven't had to stick with them very long. Hen Zemi, R-15, and Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere all stand out as terrible shows that were replaced by far superior things during their seasons, and the ability to opt out of a bad anime because of the amount of good to great things out there has been one of the best parts of watching anime in 2011. There's also been enough variety out there that there's no reason to watch a bad anime because there's probably a better variant of what you're watching playing somewhere else.

I'm thankful for shows that are better than they had any right to be.

You are already dead, and magically delicious.
You are already dead, and magically delicious.

The experimental anime which hit were one thing, but there were shows that could have been terrible that ended up being surprisingly great this season. Kore wa Zombie desu ka? and Oreimo were two shows that I had little hope for being good, and both were surprisingly very good. Zombie was unbelievably absurd to start with, but then they just kept piling more absurdity on top until you realized you were watching a show about a Vampiric Ninja who had fallen in love with a Zombie being controlled by a Necromancer who had stolen a magical girl's powers (and outfit). Just let that mental image set in, or just watch the show and embrace it's special blend of lunacy. Oreimo from the description was something I started watching expecting to be repulsed, but instead it told a good story of a brother helping his princess of a sister come to grips with the fact that she was, of all things, an otaku. There's something well done in the sibling rivalry, and fortunately it swiftly stepped away from things wihch could have been distasteful as most one paragraph descriptions would lead you to believe it would be about. Yeah, she's got a thing for little sister hentai, at least that doesn't translate into her wanting to be in one.

And this is the least of your worries with Subaru.
And this is the least of your worries with Subaru.

While these two shows were better than they had any right to be, there are two others this year which went from looking like rubbish to actually being among the best shows I've watched this year. Mayo Chiki! was not just any old stupid harem anime, it seemed intent on becoming the stupid harem anime. It adhered to the formula to a fault, but for every fault the harem anime genre has, every strength it had shined through as well. In the end the best thing about the show had to be that one of the tried and true tropes of harem anime wasn't present in this one, and that's the tsundere female lead. Except for a bit of a misunderstanding in the first episode, Kinjiro didn't have to fend off an violent love interest on top of the other problems he had to deal with. Kinjiro also was shown to be a defensive match for Subaru's offensive capacity, which was used mainly in defense of Subaru and, in the end, Kinjiro as well.

Better luck next time, you're going to need it.
Better luck next time, you're going to need it.

It's hard not to talk about shows that are better than they have any right to be an not mention Ben-To, so I'll do it here. I still haven't heard anyone talk about not liking this show, and haven't heard any reasons why it's as good as it is. Most people seem to say that they like it but can't put their finger exactly on why. It's just good, not because it's doing anything admirably well, or that there's some obvious thing that the show is hitting strongly. It just has good characters, a silly situation, and realizes that it should just run with it. A show about fights breaking out for half price Bento boxes doesn't seem like it should be one of the most entertaining shows I've watched in a long time, but there it is, delivering good action, some laughs, and some lessons you're free to ignore if you're so inclined. It's just better than it has any right to be, and that's good enough when there are so many shows which are worse than they should be.

I'm thankful for shows I have high hopes on and deliver.

That card's mine.
That card's mine.

If there's one thing that I'm happy about though it's the shows that I had hoped for great things from and delivered those things from the beginning. Chihayafuru was a show that I was throttling down expectations on because there was no way it'd be as good as the factors going in would lead one to believe. It was based on an award winning manga, and the artwork being shown before release was jawdropping. Even with it being based on an ancient card game that I only have slight knowledge of, the dynamics between the players were the things that interested me the most, and those dynamics are the things that the show has focused on. Great characters with believable motivations leads each episode to flow naturally like very few shows I've seen this year.

I've had moments like this with my children too.
I've had moments like this with my children too.

One of the shows that did flow as well as Chihayafuru this year however was the brilliant Usagi Drop. Regardless of what might happen later in the story, the opening of this story told a great tale of what it's like to become a father to someone who's already had part of their world view formed before you meet them. It's different than when you're raising your own child from birth, and the relationship in Usagi Drop is different than most since it focuses on the adjustment that needs to be made by both Kaga Rin and her new nephew Daikichi Kawachi who takes his six year old aunt in and decides to raise her to stop her from being put in a home. The growth of that relationship is possibly one of the best in any anime this year, and anyone who likes Josei anime should be watching this if they haven't already.

The Queue is Closed:

Welcome, my fellow AnimeVice members, to this my fourth installment of the Weekly Figure Preview feature here on the Vice. Last week, we previewed three anime figures (Charlotte, Mio, Makise) along with one nendoroid (Kirino Kousaka), and this week will feature the same preview formula. All of the figures/nendoroids that will be featured in this preview can be found on Play-Asia's site. For any figures that are not on Play-Asia, I will provide a link for the product at the end of the figure's respective article. Due to my current enrollment at Butte College, all future previews might be shortened or even moved to another date (from each Thursday to each Friday) in case I need to better comply with my busy schedule of homework and studying. The line up for today, as follows:
 
  1. Bakemonogatari 1/8th Scale PVC: Hitagi Senjougahara (Good Smile Version) (Good Smile Company)
  2. Fate/Stay Night 1/7th Scale PVC: Saber Alter (Vortigern Version) (Good Smile Company)
  3. Strike Witches 1/8th Scale PVC: Erica Hartmann (Re-run) (Kotobukiya Corporation)
  4. Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai Nendoroid PVC: Kuroneko (Good Smile Company) 
 
I will give the readers a preview of each figure, complete with two images, descriptions, price, and my overall thoughts on each figure. 

Bakemonogatari 1/8th Scale PVC: Hitagi Senjogahara (Good Smile Version)

Produced by the Good Smile Company and licensed by Shaft Studios as part of their official line of Bakemonogatari products, the 1/8th Scale Bakemonogatari PVC Hitagi Senjougahara figure is currently available on the global market since January 2011 in Japan and on Play-Asia's site for roughly 9,900 Yen (excluding taxes). It is sculpted by the talented figure sculptor Hironori Tokunaga with cooperation from Takayuki Kawahara for the Good Smile Company.
Figure Preview: Hitagi Senjogahara
Figure Preview: Hitagi Senjogahara
Being new to the Bakemonogatari anime as well as the Bakemonogatari franchise from Shaft Studios, I had to go and research more about the franchise and for Hitagi Senjogahara, the main female protagonist of the Bakemonogatari franchise. I came across this unique figure on the Good Smile Company site several weeks ago when looking up additional images for the Black Gold Saw preview I did two previews ago, so I decided that I would get around to featuring this figure, which caught my attention with all of the stationary falling out of her lifted skirt. She comes with a second swappable skirt as well as swappable hands that allows her to hold two staplers in her hands and the cascading stationary can be removed to how the collector wishes to display it in their collection. I really like the amount of effort and detail that both sculptors Hironori Tokunaga and Takayuki Kawahara along with Good Smile have put into this figure, from the flowing purple hair of Hitagi to her overall outfit and to the cascading stationary that rains down from beneath her lifted skirt. She would make a wonderful addition to anyone's figure collection who is looking for a high quality figure that is both eye-catching and unique to all who lay eyes upon it. Bakemonogatari was on my "To Watch" list in 2009, but sadly I never got around to it. Perhaps it is time I looked into it after all...

Who It is Recommended For: Fans of the Bakemonogatari franchise, Hitagi Senjougahara, or the collector that is looking for a high quality addition to their expanding collection that will capture the attention of all who lay eyes upon her.
 
 

Fate/Stay Night 1/7th Scale PVC: Saber Alter (Vortigern Version)

Produced by the Good Smile Company and licensed by TYPE-MOON as part of their official Fate/Stay Night line of products, the 1/7th Scale Fate/Stay Night PVC Saber Alter figure is expected to see global market release in April 2011 in Japan and on Play-Asia's site for roughly 9,490 Yen (excluding taxes). It is crafted by the talented figure sculptor Hiroshi (Sakurazensen) for the Good Smile Company.
Figure Preview: Saber Alter (Excalibur with Mask)
Figure Preview: Saber Alter (Excalibur with Mask)
For the first time since the 2nd preview, I am finally doing a preview on a figure that I am somewhat knowledgeable about, having read the Fate/Stay Night manga and watched some of the anime show last year. This figure's take on the lead female protagonist Saber is her Alter version, which is what Saber becomes when tainted by a evil shadow that corrupts her standard form. Filled with dark energy and poised to strike at her enemies with her powerful sword Excalibur, Saber's face is covered with a wicked mask that adds to the incredible job that both Hiroshi and Good Smile have put into this figure, from the details of her overall armor to her sword Excalibur down to the rugged terrain that makes up part of her base. She also comes with the Vortigern, the wicked blade that forms when Saber Alter summons up all of the dark energy in her system that can be swapped with her Excalibur and the mask on her face is removable to reveal the sinister glare in her now golden eyes. If you are a Fate/Stay Night fan or not, she would make a great addition to your growing figure collection due to the amazing job that Good Smile did in producing this incredible figure. This is the next figure that I will be investing in later this year, and hopefully you too will add her to your collection. I should get around to finishing the anime one of these days...
Figure Preview: Saber Alter (No Mask, Golden Eyes with Vortigern)

Availability: Limited (Limited Edition: Currently for pre-order on Play-Asia and expected for global release in April 2011)
Price: 9,490 Yen (Roughly $114.90 USD) 
Who It is Recommended For: Fans of the Fate/Stay Night franchise, Saber, or anyone who is looking for an amazing figure that will become the new centerpiece of your expanding collection and does not mind the higher price that comes with the quality. 

Strike Witches 1/8th Scale PVC: Erica Hartmann (Re-Run of May 2010 Figure)

Produced by the Kotobukiya Corportaion and licensed by AIC Spirits Studios as part of the line up of official Strike Witches products, the 1/8th Scale Strike Witches PVC Erica Hartmann figure is currently available on the global market since January 2011 in Japan and on Play-Asia's site for roughly 7,010 Yen. Unfortunately, I was unable to locate the information regarding who crafted it on Play-Asia, Neko Magic, or on Kotobukiya's own site (it seems that they removed their Strike Witches section from their site), so sadly I do not know who exactly crafted her.
Figure Preview: Erica Hartmann (with Military Hat and Stopped Blades)
Figure Preview: Erica Hartmann (with Military Hat and Stopped Blades)
Now, I know that some of you that read last week's preview might be thinking "Hey, another Strike Witches figure? We saw the ALTER Corporation Charlotte Elwood Yeager one last week!", but one of the reasons that I choose to feature this Strike Witches figure is to compare it quality-wise to the incredible figure that the ALTER Corporation established in their Charlotte figure. I am not knocking on the quality of Kotobukiya Corporation's figures, but I am trying to compare their offering of a figure from a hit series to another figure of the same series from another company. Having roughly educated myself last week about the Strike Witches franchise and Strike Witches anime through research, I was aware of who Erica Hartmann was, but needed to look up more info regarding her character before previewing this figure. As stated in a prior preview, with me being a certified sucker for anime girls with guns, that was probably the main reason I first decided to feature Erica in this week's preview. She comes with swappable blades for her striker unit (one pair of stopped blades and a pair of spinning blades), the military hat on her head is removable to whatever the collector wishes to display her with, and her position can be altered slightly from the support that rises from her blue base. The detail that Kotobukiya has put into her is respectable, from her black military outfit to her machine gun that she wields into battle with the Neuroi forces. She would make a great addition to anyone who already owns Strike Witches figures or for anyone who is looking for a good quality figure that is not big of a hit to the wallet as some other figures can be.

Who It is Recommended For: Fans of the Strike Witches franchise, Erica Hartmann, or the collector looking to add a interesting figure that is of good quality that will catch the eyes of those who look upon it. 

Nendoroid Corner: Non-Scale Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii ga Nai! PVC: Kuroneko

For this week's installment of the Nendoroid Corner, we will be looking into the other nendoroid featured by the Good Smile Company from the hit anime/manga series Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii ga Nai. Today, we will be previewing Kuroneko, one of several female characters from Ore no Imouto and the otaku friend of Kirino Kosaka, who was featured in last week's preview. Produced by the Good Smile Company in cooperation with Nendoron and officially licensed by the joint association of Aniplex and ASCII Media Works, the Non-Scale Nendoroid PVC Kuroneko is expected to see global market release around April 2011 in Japan and on Play-Asia's site for roughly 3,460 Yen (excluding taxes). She is crafted by the talented figure sculptor Maruhige for the Good Smile Company.
Nendoroid Corner: Kuroneko
Nendoroid Corner: Kuroneko
Still being relatively new to the Ore no Imouto anime and the Ore no Imouto franchise, I had to look up more information regarding both the franchise and Kuroneko, one of the female characters of the popular anime franchise that Good Smile decided to make a nendoroid for in a collaboration with the Kirino Kosaka nendoroid that hits the market later this month.  She comes with several swappable facial expressions (Happy, Relieved, and Concern), a attachable set of kitty ears, as well as several swappable arms and legs to change up her pose to what the collector wants her displayed with along with a DVD case of her beloved "MASCHERA: Lament of a Fallen Beast" for her to hold in her hand. As I have stated before, I am not much of a fan of nendoroids in general, but Good Smile is slowly winning me over with all of these high quality nendoroids that I have been featuring lately. She would make a great addition to the nendoroid collector that is looking for a great quality figure that is both eye-catching and customizable to their needs. Still don't think that I will ever give the Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai anime a try, but at least you can own part of it...
Nendoroid Corner: Kuroneko

Availability: Limited (Limited Edition: Currently for pre-order on Play-Asia and expecting a global release in April 2011)
Price: 3,460 Yen (roughly $41.90 USD)
Who It is Recommended For: Fans of Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai franchise, Kuroneko, or the nendoroid collector that is looking for a great addition to their collection that is decently priced and will attract the eye of most who look in it's direction.
 
That wraps up Weekly Figure Preview: 2/3/2011. Next week's line-up is currently TBA (should announce final lineup by Sunday).
