    I won't deny it's interesting... but... I don't know. I'm also watching Chihaya Furu (and I did rewatch Hakuouki) and compared to those anime I've found it to be rather boring? It's not the right word, but it's not really exciting either. |D; But still, I'm definitally going to finish it, because I want to know how it ends. |D

    The animation quality and art quality is indeed pretty good. At least it seems this animation study had more budget than Hakuouki's. |D;

    Exactly! I think it's great that fictional work can inspire an interest in the real world counterpart, even if that part is not part of your own history.
    That reminds me, in Kamisama Hajimemashi'ta, the main character is studying world history and seems to be doing so in great detail (considering what she mentions about the Dutch independence). I remember the part about Japan (very short explanation about how Shogunate Japan transitioned into Empire Japan) in my history course being about 10 lines long. Needless to say that series like Hakuouki tell more than those 10 lines. |D

    And I see you started watching/playing Amnesia? (Judging by your Orion avatar, at least).

    (Don't mind the ' in hajimemashi'ta, PC's autocensoring wold turn it into hajimema****a otherwise |D)

    That's more than right! I'm glad historical fiction can tell stories about a part of history you'd gladly skip in the books. Although it's not always 100% accurate, you still get to know something.

    The anime does an alright job in following the game, so inevitably they cover all the events as well. Chizuru often serves as the narrator do give some background information, but I admit it can get a bit confusing with all the terms. But yes, it is quite an interesting part of history. Even though I don't know the entire background of the Tokugawa era or the Meiji era, I still think it's quite interesting. And watching/reading/gaming is a very nice way of learning about it. (at least better than reading dry history books |D)

    It's deffinitally worth watching. :3
    I was once watching the anime with a friend, and she said it seemed to go a little fast (with all the historical events following each other quite fast), it seems to help a little if you have a little background information about the Bakumatsu (which I got thanks to my Rurouni Kenshin phase... it also massively spoiled me for the entire anime. |D)

    Indeed, that way you get a little more information about all the characters. Of course it's never as in-depth as the game goes, but it's still nice to see that not everyone's put on the bench... like the Game's route seem to do depending on who you play as.
    Well, I started watching the Sekkaroku Anime (not sure which one of the games it's based on - Zuisuroku?), but every episode is someone's route and tells part of the events. It's quite interesting, really. Saitou's episode was so sweet. |D;

I was looking through my old deviantArt journals when I came across this one I had written on December 19, 2011. I thought I would repost it here since it's Pokémon-related (and I'm cleaning up my dA page):



The official Pokémon website always has full English episodes of the Pokémon anime available for viewing by anyone, but they rotate the available episodes at any given time. At the moment they have some of the first Orange Islands episodes available under...

The worldwide announcement will be made tomorrow at 6am in my timezone. That's RIGHT before I go to class.

I'm all sorts of spazzing right now. I really hope that this presentation won't let me down! After having so many announcements hyped but then leading to only simple Wi-Fi events or the like, I'm really, really, really hoping that I won't be disappointed by this!

This blog entry is my take on the Pokémon world's government in the main series of Pokémon games.

All the regions we have visited thus far fall under one National PokéDex, which would mean that they are all one giant nation despite their distance from each other. To have such a huge country raises other questions: namely, how large is the "Pokémon planet," and how many other nations are there?

One option is that all regions are controlled by one nation,...

The nature of gen1ers to be ignorant, hypocritical, and downright irritating is one that is disliked by Pokémon fans around the globe. But what makes gen1ers the most annoying, to me, is their arguments. And it's not so much that their arguments are weak and full of holes, but that in order to counter their argument, you'd have to make it seem like you're against gen 1.

Muk and Voltorb are always bearing the brunt of anti-gen1er arguments, but that doesn't necessarily mean they...

A more simple blog entry from me this time. Just some idea-sharing, really. Feel free to share your own ideas and opinions on the subject of "NPC protagonists" in the comments!

To start things off...
Red is you. You are Red. Never forget that.
Even if his party is different than yours, or you didn't use the name "Red," he is still you. In RGBY, you went off on a journey with Red as your avatar. Just because he appeared in GSC as an NPC doesn't...
