The Token End of Year Post 2015

Posted by DiGiKerot in Free Talk, idolmaster, Kantai Collection at January 2, 2016 on 9:33 pm

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!

Mikan Watch #101: Blue Exorcist

From the first episode of the TV version of Blue Exorcist, being used as a container to transport items from one homestead to another.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas, one and all, and because I’ve been out most the day and have noooooo time to commit something new to digital ink, have this dumb image from a Christmas card I sent my brother this year. Fury Road was a pretty great movie anyway.

Anyhow, whilst I’m here, I may as well make a brief public service announcement – Daisuki dropped note on their Twitter feed earlier today to mention the fact that iDOLM@STER will be dropping off their service on the 31st of the month. This is just the original series, not Cinderella Girls, but given this is the only point of legitimate English availability for large portions of the world (including the UK), well… if your seasonal back-log schedule isn’t already overfilled, and you’ve not seen the show already, it is well beyond worth watching.

Also, episode 22 is totally seasonally relevant!

(Also, for what it’s worth, the finale of Hackadoll this week totally had an extended combined Fist of the Northstar/MadMax pastiche going for a while, as well as also being probably a better Dragonball than Super often reportedly is)

Mikan Watch #100: Teekyuu

Posted by DiGiKerot in Mikan Watch at December 1, 2015 on 8:34 pm

From episode 68 of the ever-wonderful, and greatest-sports-cartoon-ever, Teekyuu, which I cannot possibly think of a more appropriate show than for the 100th official Mikan Watch instalment.

Not that I particularly have any further comment regarding the show, but now that I’ve devoted the 100th post to something worthwhile, I can probably go back and actually post some of the other possible entries I’ve been sitting on (or, more honestly, been too lazy to go back and screencap).

(p.s. Hackadoll is still great)
