Check it out, you have to: http://www.penguin-empire.com

Thanks to fnzna / karageaz for bringing this masterpiece of modern web design to my attention. I cannot wait for this series to air now, it is going to be glorious.

What makes me even more psyched is that the site features an interview with Ichiei Ishibumi, the creator of High School DxD (and some crossover artwork!). Here’s a translation of the main thrust of the interview:

Can hot-blooded action and tits go together?

They can! Yes they can!

What Should I Blog Next? Winter 2014

You may have noticed I haven’t chosen any new series to blog yet. That’s because I’m travelling for the next week and have a crappy hotel  internet connection, so there probably won’t be any updates on new shows until I get home.

It’s also due to the fact that I have no idea what to blog. Kill la Kill and Samurai Flamenco carry over from last season, so I’ll probably pick 2-3 more shows.  There’s nothing that I really want to blog, so the poll will probably carry more weight than usual. At the moment I’m leaning towards Seikai Seifuku, Pilot’s Love Song, and / or Buddy Complex but I don’t feel all that strongly about any of them.

What should I blog next? Pick up to three.

So vote. Also if anybody is in New York City let me know. This place sucks, I’m pretty sure it’s what hell looks like.

Happy Birthday to Me! Year Three!

Wow. I’ve been writing this blog for three years now. Time seems to fly by faster and faster the older you get.

The word on the street is that after blogging for three years you will suddenly disappear from the face of the Earth. I have no plans to do so so don’t worry. Definitely can’t quit before SAO season 2 at the very least.

By the numbers, I’ve had about as many visitors as last year, except I slacked off and blogged fewer shows. But actually I had a very successful first half of the year, and visitors have died down towards the end. The numbers are a bit misleading though since this fall is due almost entirely to waning interest in SAO hentai. Next year is going to be really busy with SAO season 2 coming out! Continue reading

What should I blog this season? Let me know your thoughts.

As you may have noticed, I’ve been way behind on everything lately. Three weeks ago I was at Anime Expo (regarding which I will eventually write a post) and then I was out all of last week as well. I haven’t blogged a second episode of a single new show.

To make things worse, I’m also going to be cavorting through the wilderness without consistent internet access for the first two and a half weeks of August. Fortunately I have a secret project I’ve been working on which I’ll schedule to start releasing. I’m curious if this series will garner much interest since it is not exactly timely.

It was also suggested that I publish some guest posts while I’m gone, which I think is a good idea. So if anyone would like to write a guest post about anything related to anime, let me know. For bloggers, it may be a good way to get some exposure for your site. For others, it’s an opportunity to have a platform to get your ideas out there if you’d like to share. Just let me know if you’re planning to write anything beforehand.
