A Tiny Disaster Out of Nowhere, and A Resignation of Some Sort


|This post is written by Gilimandra|

If you’ve been lurking around the blog in the past two days or so, you’d probably noticed that a number of pictures are missing from some articles. We’ve looked into them and it turned out that pictures that have been uploaded to the authors’ facebook accounts, and are linked straight to the articles, are the ones that are gone. It’d take some time but we’ll definitely fix them as soon as possible.

On an unrelated note, some of you might have noticed that I’ve not written anything in the past two weeks. Well to be honest many real life businesses suddenly need to be taken care of so I decided to be inactive for an unspecified period of time. I might write something again in the future, but for now I simply don’t have the time to do so. Rest assured though, Saladine will cover my part about anime and manga reviews, and he’ll do them satisfyingly as he has always done. Well simply put, it’s goodbye for me folks, see you again sometime!

What’s the commotion all about? Well, one of Japanesense dear authors, Randy, happens to be born into this chaotic world today twenty one years ago. And if you’re kind enough to care about congratulating him, then there are two ways this can go down: First, by commenting on this post or second, by reading any of the articles he has written so far. The choice is yours, dear readers! Anyway once again, Happy Birthday to Randy, we wish you all the best! Please expect more cool and useful stuffs from him in the future!

Now, first served to you out of three titles is an anime that endorses a couple of delusional minds as its main casts, “Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!” Let’s go!

Spotting Delicious and Trashy Concepts in Fall Anime 2012


|This post is written by Gilimandra|

It’s been about a week since my last post, so it’s been a while AniManga mania! After the short fall anime 2012 reviews I’ve been thinking of a change of pace, of writing something other than just your usual reviews. I’d like for it to have something to do with anime or manga trivia… what, that doesn’t feel different at all? Well, unfortunately I haven’t got any better idea, so there you go. Now, I’ve whimsically decided to post about some of the most attention-grabbing scenes or concepts so far in the sea of 6 new fall anime 2012 titles, for better or for the worse. And since I don’t know what else to say in the introductory paragraph, let’s just get down to them!
