Fragged in LA

Apr 19th, 2015 | Filed under Anime, News

I was watching Aldnoah Zero the other day, and I noticed something curious in one of the cuts during the opening song.

The signage and buildings looked very familiar. After around 15 minutes of searching on google maps, I think I might have found the actual location of this cut.

Downtown Los Angeles - Wilshire & Flower

The signs, buildings, store fronts, lamp posts – all of these points seem to match up very well.

After looking at it some more, it seems like the cars are going the wrong way in the cut from the anime.

I was watching Baby Steps recently, and I noticed a curious pattern.

I wonder if they’ll end up with the whole alphabet over the course of the series.

It’s Spring Break so I thought I’d pop in and clean up a few things around here.

I mostly just removed some dead links and cleaned up the code on my other sites. I have a bunch of images that I haven’t had time to process. Hopefully, I can get around to it someday. Working is good, but I don’t have much time to update my site. ;_;

Happy Thanksgiving!

I was watching Monogatari Series: Second Season (Koi Monogatari), and I noticed that one of the scenes looked familiar.

I happened to take a very similar picture when I was in Japan.

Torii Pathway July 2012

It took a bit of setup to take this shot. I told everyone behind me to stop so I could take a picture without any people in it – I didn’t care if anyone got mad at me. This is one of my favorite pics from Japan.

For now…

HOTTO de onegaishimasu!

Apparently, serving the public means you have to give up your dignity…

Even though it’s really hot outside, do your best to conserve electricity!

When one of my friends got a demo for Final Fantasy VIII, I was pretty excited to check it out. It seemed like a pretty cool game at the time. The summon for Leviathan was ridiculous, but it looked really nice. Ever since then, my mental picture for Leviathan looked like this:

Curiously enough, two shows for the Spring 2013 Anime Season have characters named Leviathan: Zettai Bouei Leviathan and Namiuchigiwa no Muromi-san.

They’ve mostly kept the blue motif, but my image of Leviathan is shattered forever.

Progress?!
