Seen here in it’s traditional guise as a container for moving domicile, from the penultimate episode (for now, at least) of Mr. Osomatsu (or Osomatsu-san, if you are so inclined).

Mikan Watch #103: Tetsujin 28 (2004)

Posted by DiGiKerot in Mikan Watch at February 28, 2016 on 4:14 pm


Thaliarchus over on the Twitter pinged this shot from the 2004 version of Tetsujin 28 in my direction some sixty days ago, which I promptly sat on and did nothing with.

I can’t say I’ve seen any of the 2004 version of the series myself, mind you. I did, however, watch an awful lot of The New Adventures of Gigantor (the US version of the 1980 Tetsujin 28 show) as a wee’un when it ran on the old satellite telly here in Blighty. I don’t really have much recollection of it outside of the opening theme, though!


Chika*Chika Idol…

Omo has probably already written most of what I’d want to say about this, but given I’ve not posted in the best part of a couple of months, I suppose I should probably persist.

The short version is that veteran anime director Hiroshi Nishikiori has launched a crowdfunding campaign to produce a 3DCG idol anime short called Chika*Chika Idol, which is somewhat unfortunately floundering on two different fronts.

The Token End of Year Post 2015

For the sixth year running I must, once again, confess that I’ve yet to watch a single episode of Gundam Unicorn. This is particularly bad at this point, because I’ve actually some how managed to get around to seeing the first couple of episodes of Gundam the Origin this year, not to mention being fully up-to-date on Iron Blooded Orphans.

Seriously, I’ll totally crack open those BDs this year.

Anyway, here’s too many words to be actually worth reading about some cartoons from this year. Spoilers be lurking thar below!

Mikan Watch #102: Concrete Revolutio

Posted by DiGiKerot in Mikan Watch at December 31, 2015 on 1:16 am


From episode 12 of Concrete Revolutio, a Superhuman who is a guy in a Mikan box with a drill for one of his arms. I’d have to presume that he’s based on some popular character from the 1960s or so, but I can’t say I have any idea who. I’d presume that he’s secretly way, way powerful, though.

I’ll probably write more about ConRevo in coming days, so I can’t really say I have much to say about it right now. It’s a real good show, though!
