New Transformers the Movie Trailer

A freaking awesome new trailer for Transformers the Movie has shown up on Yahoo. It shows several kick ass scenes of violence and mayhem. A slightly longer, but lower quality trailer is here at Google Videos.

All I can say is, if this is what we have to look forward to for the full movie...I will be there, over and over again!

Alright! From the people who brought us the full Tsukihime english translation patch, Mirror Moon: The Fate scenario (or Sabre route, if you prefer) is fully translated and ready for use. So for those of you who have the game (or know where to get it) and want to know what's going on as it happens, rather than referring to a guide or overview, this should satisfy...at least until you want to complete the Rin and Sakura routes, heh.

A little while ago I had written an essay noting the dramatic increase in couples of all sorts in otakudom, as opposed to the wasteland it was only eight or so years ago in that regard. So many I see seem very happy, and would probably do anything and everything to hold onto what they have found; what has been denied them for so long. Like one who has been thirsty all his life being given a drink of water, like a man who has subsisted on scraps and rotting hunks of flesh being served a well done steak; many are like abused animals in that regard, at least at first. However, though the, initial 'neediness' of it fades as those needs are now being fulfilled, the memory of that lack stays with the one who was denied always. It's something the fanboy (or fangirl, but I hope to convince a fangirl to write a companion piece to this article) would do damn near anything to avoid; the problem is, by doing so, it opens one up to something that is just as bad with the very real potential of getting worse.

Here I take a break from discussing the fandom in general to address something a little more personal and serious; that being some things a fanboy should watch out for while courting a fangirl. This may especially be important if this is the first real relationship the fanboy has been in, and could use a little advice if he feels something's just not right.

News Round-Up 2007-04-14

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.

The Fanfiction Mailing List is now back up. It had gone down briefly due to the untimely passing of the maintainer of the Aniverse servers. For now, the new posting address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


A succubus is both an interesting and beautiful creature, but they can also be quite hazardous. Among lonely fantasy story loving men, typically, they are only second in popularity to a catgirl. They reasons for which are quite obvious to all, but the most obtuse. They have bodies that redefine perfection; coming in shapes and sizes to fit any and all preferences, not to mention an insatiable need for sex, and often a giving and loving nature no matter what you might look like. They are the perfect fantasy come to life; how could they not be desirable? For this, they are highly sought after; however, there are pitfalls associated with a succubus that could take a man unawares, often fatally so, should he not first prepare himself as previously noted. It is here in this guide the education that will ensure both your survival and your happiness with the succubus will begin. Keep in mind, it will only be a beginning. This is not the end all, be all resource for your succubus needs, and you will need to seek those other sources out. There are books, there are demons of knowledge, there are instructional videos, testimony from various men who've managed to acquire one, and most importantly the succubus herself will tell you a great deal, not just about what she is, but WHO she is...and you'll find this invaluable. For various reasons, I cannot list too many specific sources in this text, but an internet search should put you on the right track. You should at least look into consulting all of the mentioned references during your time with the girl, which could very well be the rest of your life...let's hope it will be a long one. We've all got to start somewhere, though, and first you actually have to get one, or at least be thinking of getting one...assuming one hasn't already gotten you.

More from the ASOS Brigade

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!

More on the Subject of Moe

A lot of people have a lot to say on the subject of moe, and it's been interesting cruising through the various articles on it, to say the least. Here for example, is an indepth dissertation on the meaning and usage of it as it's being used at present time. Which is to say, it's definitely different from its actual meaning which can be found here (and includes its own expansion of the word).

I also note that the Heisei Democracy site has more to it than just odd articles, it contains a lot of trivia based news concerning anime and manga that is well worth a read through.

Drop by the forums and discuss the subject, for there is a lot about it that people both agree on and find contradictory. CLOSED

ASOS Brigade!

As part of the viral or gorilla marketing scheme to announce the distribution by Bandai and release of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (no homepage yet, that I can find) by Kodokawa here in the states on May 29th, there has been a live action production of something referred to as the ASOS Brigade. At present these consist of two hilarious skits in a mixture of English and Japanese language which have to seen to be believed. The scheme also includes a MySpace page for those who are into that sort of thing.

Happy viewing!

And yes, that is indeed, as she herself says, the Pink Space Ranger, Patricia Ja Lee. Now all we need is for her and Johnny Young Bosch to get a part together, just for the shear irony of it all.
