So what do you get when you take a girl with a sword big enough to make the Rayearth characters jealous, add in a young man with the sort of balls most anime males wish they had, and throw in some critters that like to snack on humans? I'm taking a look at Claymore this week, a series that has set about answering just that question, and is doing a damned nice job of it thus far. It's a surprisingly deep take on a story that might seem, on the face of it, to have been done before, and we're only three episodes in.
So, I know things have been pretty slow, but there have been a few things going on. So, I'll round it up here at the end (or is that beginning?) of the week.
This video is actually my first Avatar AMV, and my third AMV all together. It's also when I found out that Anime Music Video's now screens their videos and won't let you post unless you have a confirmed anime listed. The next stop was Youtube, where it had a remarkable success. A large string of comments and a flawless 5.0 rating until Nickelodeon decided it was tired of people pirating Avatar through Youtube. Youtube's actions were quick and ruthless, and my innocent video was wiped out with the pirate ships. I'm not complaining mind you, as Nickelodeon has a right to protect its assets.
So finally, with Aquaricat's good graces, here it is: Prelude to the Dark Day, set to A.F.I.'s Prelude to 12/21
As long as I'm on a site updating spree, I thought that I'd add a new review to the mix, my first xBox 360 take. And for that event, I've settled on a Gears of War review that cuts right to the gory innards. Hope you folks are ready for a mauling the likes of which Ash would look at and say... "Groovy." Grab your Torque Bow, check your shotgun's ammo load, and rev up that Lancer's chainsaw bayonet... Welcome back to the Army, soldier.
I'm pleased to present to you the work of Little Masa-ouki, a long time friend from the #TenchiFF chatroom of Aniverse, and his newest Anime Music Video. Because it is an Avatar AMV, he wasn't able to get it hosted in the normal places, such as animemusicvideos.org, or even youtube.com, so Dragon's Anime is honored, and proud to provide it here instead. The AMV is presented in Jeroen Wijering's Flash Media Player, which works similar to YouTube's player. You can find the video here in Little Masa-Ouki's new section, Masa's Corner.
Well, it looks like our diabolical friends over at the ASOS have come out with a new episode, they have right on their front page. Ep 005...which makes me wonder how many I missed so far...or did I miss them?
In any event, here you go, and spread the word! All Hail Haruhi!
