Please, Anime Industry, Hire Diesel-san to Research Trombones


I was watching Tamako Market tonight. Lovely movie. But my immersion was completely ruined when a trombone made its appearance.

A little known fact: I am a trombone player. And a well known fact: that is not how you hold a trombone! What the fuck is that girl doing to her trombone?! Someone is going to be murdered by her slide! How could anyone even imagine doing such a thing to a beautiful trombone?!!!

Secret Santa Half-Review — Ergo Proxy


So, I suck. I wasn’t able to finish my Secret Santa in time this year. My choices this year were Ergo Proxy, Kaiji, or Brigadoon. I was most interested in Brigadoon, but I decided to watch Ergo Proxy since my last three Secret Santas had also recommended it, and it’s widely hailed to be one of the classics by stupid gaijin, along with Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Tehxnolyze, Kino’s Journey, etc., all of which I hate.
