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.
I’ve been enjoying Hataraku Maou-sama! a lot lately, so I thought I’d make some animated gifs.
As I was watching Natsuyuki Rendezvous, I kept wondering if there was a connection to Jormungand besides Ohara Sayaka voicing one of the characters.
I recently realized that Valmet and Rokka both cut their hair quite a bit shorter. There has to be another connection that I’m missing somewhere… the game is afoot!
Japan’s birth rate is quite low these days, and I’ve thought about possible causes. I never would have guessed that Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun would lend possible insight into this situation.
I happened to catch a subtle message on the whiteboard – “cock. It’s atrocious.” This subtle instance demonizing male genitalia for young, impressionable girls immersed in shoujo anime is quite curious. It makes me wonder if there are other such subliminal messages in other anime or if it’s just focused on young girls. This seems to warrant further investigation.
I was watching Joshiraku the other day, and I noticed that one of the scenes was made around the time that I was in Japan.
If I had watched Joshiraku before going to Japan, I would have tried to get the exact angle (this particular episode wasn’t out at the time).
While there are some pretty decent shows out for Spring 2012, I like to rewatch certain scenes from Acchi Kocchi. Fun times!
Sadly, Kaname tends to act cold towards this spatula.
Nobunaga didn’t notice this spatula’s secret treasure.
