I've decided to move to Wordpress because it's SO MUCH EASIER. I can do so much more there, and my favorite part: I CAN HID POSTS UNDER CUTS! Which is totally something I can't do here.

So this post is officially the last post EVER of this blog. It was nice knowing ya, Blogger.


Please update your links! See you at the new site!

Weekly Anime/Manga Schedule

Now that some series are finishing up and some new ones are getting started, I thought it would be a good idea to post what I'm going to watch/read on a daily basis. Maybe I'll actually keep to this plan this time. :D

Note: Italics means manga.

Special A
Soul Eater


Soul Eater




Code Geass R2

The days that are blank mean there's no new episodes of any series that are currently airing on those days. So usually I spend those days catching up on things I missed or watching other series that have already aired and I just haven't seen yet.

For you Vic Mignogna/Ouran Lovers...

On Friday, July 4th, FUNimation held an Ouran High School Host Club panel at Anime Expo. Of course, I wasn't there since I was sitting in the insanely long line for the LM.C panel, but whatever. There they announced the official voice actors for the Ouran High School Host Club dub release, which will go straight to DVD in October. Luckily for people who actually buy or rent and then copy the DVDs, they are being released on two 13-episode discs instead of a rediculous amount of expensive 4-episode discs.

Anyway, here is the official cast list:

Caitlin Glass as Haruhi Fujioka
Vic Mignogna as Tamaki Suou
Greg Ayres as Kaoru Hitachiin
J. Michael Tatum as Kyoya Ohtori
Luci Christian as Mitsukuni Haninozuka
Mike McFarland as Ryuuji "Ranka" Fujioka
Patrick Seitz as Umehito Nekozawa
Todd Haberkorn as Hikaru Hitachiin
Travis Willingham as Takashi Morinozuka
Aaron Dismuke as Yasuchika Haninozuka
Brittney Karbowski as Hinako Tsuwabuki
Carrie Savage as Momoka Kurakano
Cherami Leigh as Kirimi Nekozawa
Christopher R. Sabat as Ritsu Kasanoda
Eric Vale as Toru Suzushima
Jamie Marchi as Chizuru Maihara
R Bruce Elliott as Kasanoda's Father

This cast excites me because it's pretty much a gathering of all the well-known voice actors. Also it's pretty much everyone from Fullmetal Alchemist except in a different setting. That might end up being kind of awkward, but whatever. The FMA dub was amazing, and if it's pretty much the same cast, than this dub should be amazing, too.

Speaking of Fullmetal Alchemist, it must of been very convenient to hold the Fullmetal Alchemist signing right after the Ouran signing. I didn't get into the Ouran signing, but some very generous people held my space in line and we ended up being first in the FMA signing. I'll post a picture of my signed FMA wallscroll (which I bought from a random booth at the last minute) later, but for now here's some Vic fanservice for you.

"Vic I can haz picture?"

Vic getting ready for FMA signing, salad and water in hand. I've got videos of him eating, but I'll save those for my personal Vic food porn collection. =)

Getting back on the topic of Ouran, chapter 62 of the manga was finally released. Expect a blog post about it soon. Lots of things happen, I just have to let it all soak in before I actually write about it (which means you know it has to be good).

Special A Episode 14

Since I'm an impatient bitch and I can't wait for fansubs, I made a list in my Handy Dandy Anime Blogging Notebook of things that happened in this episode as I watched the raw. I could only pick out a few words here and there, but I still got the gist of what was going on.

So here's the list I made:
  • Akira has a party for all the poor kids who are amazed at her wealth.
  • Akira sends a limo to pick Yui up before school.
  • Yui goes over to Akira's house after school.
  • They have some sort of argument, complete with "de ja vu"-like flashbacks and Yui steals some of Akira's jewelry.
  • Akira is depressed.
  • The next day, Tadashi drags Akira into a grassy field to make her feel better.
  • They hug and we get a Tadashi/Akira moment.
  • Yui tries to pawn Akira's jewelry, but Yahiro stops her.
  • Tadashi brings Akira to Yui's house on his motorcycle (they make a point for us to see that Akira is holding on very tightly), but she's not home.
  • Yui almost gets hit by a car, but Yahiro jumps in and saves her, then takes her to his house.
  • Akira and Tadashi arrive at Yahiro's house and see that Yui is also there.
  • Some talking goes on, then Akira says sorry to Yahiro for something.
  • The next day Akira gives Tadashi cake, and Akira thinks Kei is going to eat Hikari.

After reading some other blogs I pretty much get the feeling that Yahiro interfered to protect Akira from getting used by some poor bitches who only like her because she's rich. I don't really care either way, I just want more Kei/Hikari. D=

Special A Subbers are Too Slow and Anime Expo Forum Mods Have Something Very Large in Their Special Excrementing Place

Just kidding. I know that if they make an exception for me, they'd have to make an exception for everyone. But still. ;__; They didn't need to be rude about it.

However! I will not be shot down this easily! Last year, many congoers flooded a local shopping center when there was nothing to do or they got hungry. And damn, that chicken wing place was good. I bet I can find a crowded off-site place to have my mini Free Hugs Day Campaign. We will not be a stifled cause!

Moving on.

I don't want to be one of those tight-wads who complains about anime fansubbers and how they sub too slow. I know, I know, they do it for free, I don't pay for it, blah blah, but whatever. But there is something more valuable than money on the line: reputation. And seriously, they don't have a good one at this point. First of all, it isn't one group, but two. Baka-Wolf and m33w are working on it together. So why the fuck does it take so fucking long?! It should go twice as fast, in fact, it should be a same-day service. I want my anime, and I want it now, damn it.

This makes me think of something else: Hikari is a fucking idiot. Kei kisses her, says all kinds of lovey-dovey stuff to her, and still she remains totally clueless. Wtf? Kei deserves better. Now I haven't read the manga in like, a million and one years, so I don't remember if it's much different. But I really think that Hikari needs to get a fucking brain.

Bleach Chapter 316

So we're finally get back on road with the "present times". Sure, that whole 'turn back the pendelum' thing was interesting, but let's face it, all the Bleach fangirls want to see at this point is some more of sexy Ulquiorra in action. :)

So this chapter starts with some random girl getting chased by some random hollow. Something catches their attention in the sky, and so when they look up they see the Gotei 13 facing Aizen's army. The captains do some thinking out loud as they try to decide which Espada looks strongest, and then Old Man Yama goes all psycho on their not so sorry asses.

Of course, the Espada stand there looking indifferent as always. Gin asks Aizen how they're going to be able to join the battle now that Yama trapped them... somewhere. I wasn't really sure what was going on, but I think it was some sort of barrier? Anyway, Aizen replied saying something along the lines of, "We are awesome and our balls won't need to be bothered with this because we will totally pwn."

Now, if you remember, Ulquiorra was left in charge of Hueco Mundo while Aizen was gone. Yeah, I know, the thirteen long weeks of flashbacks caused some memory loss, but we'll get through it. Anywho, the scene cut to Ulquiorra and Orihime in Hueco Mundo. Ulquiorra pretty much tells her that she's useless now and he's going to kill her, and asks her if she's scared. She gives some sappy crap about how since "everyone came to save me, my heart is with them."

And then the chapter ends, and we're left with some bullshit message about how there's no chapter next week. Boo. :(

Free Hug Dreams Foiled! ;__;

Something came to light on the Cosplay.com forums that I wasn't aware of. While I got a positive response about my plans for International Free Hugs Day, it seems that in the AX Code of Conduct you aren't allowed to have signs of any kind.

This is really depressing! My friends and I already made our signs. ;__; However, it mentions 'unapproved signs,' so I'm going to see if I can pull some strings and get our signs approved. We should be able to advertise our free hugs, damn it!
