Momotato is the greatest troll ever

Friday, January 1st, 2010

He drives a spike in traffic to his blog without posting anything for over a year. He is that awesome.

Os is alive

Monday, January 11th, 2010

Look who’s back and switched to vintage Momotato annual posting schedule.

A SECOND thought as prompted by comments: Think of all the people who are trying to sell their lightly used LSAs, just because they think of taking them out for a spin and then ask “what is the point?” At least you’ve spent 1/10th as much to be just as satisfyingly emo!

UPDATE: Actually, this post started with my observation how WAH used the comment at Os’ post to demonstrate how much of an insufferable, arrogant ass he is. The contrast with Hung’s measured and friendly comment was especially telling. But then I decided that it was beneath contempt and limited myself to the positive (and the post shrunk enough to fit the micro-nouto category). And what do you know, today WAH doubled down by posting an expanded teatrise where he psychoanalizes Hung and his comment from the better-than-thou angle that long made WAH’s blog so pukeworthy.

(And before anyone gets on my case for jumping on Hung, I’m simply using him as an example for an trend I’ve noticed across my time as a fan. He’s just the closest thing in my sights at the moment.)

Good heavens, I’m glad WAH hasn’t formed an trend himself.

BTW, this time WAH omited one point that he used to make without fail: that he is better than Hung-like rabble because he speaks Japanese and lived in Japan. Is it a hint that Hung is just as fluent? Or simple oversight?

Guess the word

It just occured to me that “animaru soruja” means “Animal Soldiers”. Yes, I’m slow.

Suddenly… Old times at JAR, right now

About an hour ago, with no warning, Shon at opened a Live Request Hour at Japan-a-Radio. We’re having fun right now, with old-timers joining left and right and requesting (can’t use phone this time though, only IRC. Word travels fast… 52 minutes left yet.

Oh Nova, you card

Jinx.fi: “Anime industry is like a family. You hurt my family, I hurt you. Odex just wasn’t tough enough.” I am sure it’s fueled by his pilgrimage to Singapore (the heart of English-language animeblogging for some reason), but it’s funny.

What if CD wins ABT?

Why has nobody noticed so far that Scamp’s very own Cart Driver is in the running (seeded into the first round with rank 33, and currently winning)?

Cat Shit One is promised in August

PSP The Best means No Manual

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

How am I supposed to play my Missing Moon?

UPDATE 2010/05/14: I stumbled upon the manual. Apparently, I took the booklet out to read, misplaced it, and forgot that it happened. Not that the manual is going to help me with my timed choices, but perhaps it explains the mystery of protagonist voice.

Zyl vs. Canne on Summer Wars

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

It manages to gather so many great ideas together and miraculously makes everything work.

Thus it’s no classic, just a summer dalliance.

Anime? I dimly remember something like that.

I edited VNDB and added Toradora Portable.

UPDATE: Kaz, who I knew from the ancient days of Anime Cafe [Wrong Anime Cafe, the right one is only at Wayback Machine — Author], e-mailed on matters related to TDP and apparently did not realize that my VNblogging shifted to Meenuvia, leaving the ruins of Ani-nouto alone.

UPDATE: Saved by Nova‘s logs while I was away:

<sagematt> “Based on the characters and story of anime “Toradora”, the VN even employs the same voice talent: Rie Kugimiya, Eri Kitamura, etc.” <– D: OH MY FUCKING GOD
<sagematt> HE DISSED HOCCHAN
<sagematt> CALLED HER “ETC.”
<sagematt> WHAT THE FUCK ZAITCEV.

I just forgot. She was in my old post on the topic, but I’m not a seiyuu man.
