A friend and I made a video for our final project! It’s about digital copyright enforcement and augmented reality interfaces. On an unrelated note, I am extremely upset that Google Reader is being retired.
Maaya’s latest album You can’t catch me was just released a few days ago. The best song in the new album is by far Utsukushii Hito, a collaboration with Yoko Kanno for the Kentoushi Fune Saigen Project at last year’s Shanghai World Expo. The exhibition itself was basically a replica of a ship used during [...]
An extremely short trailer for Makoto Shinkai’s latest project “Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo” has been released on the official site. The length and amount of plot details contained are about the same as the Byousoku 5cm trailer. It looks like he is actually moving out of his comfort zone into more adventurous fantasy territory. There’s [...]
I was just given YouTube links to what may possibly be the most incredible videos I have ever seen. I realize that this is a claim that I often make, but this time it’s different. Really. Videos are embedded after the break.
Tomorrow, 6th of January 2010, is YouTube Porn Day. Yes, 4chan’s Anonymous has once again declared war on YouTube as a reaction against perceived injustice in YouTube’s ban policies. YouTube junkies can look forward to stumbling upon some titillating surprises tomorrow. Just don’t do it at work.
I attended the press preview for Anime Festival Asia 08 today. The actual event starts tomorrow at 9am. The preview itself consisted of a short tour around the booths that were being set up and a press conference to introduce the invited guests. Note: This post is backdated because it took longer than expected to [...]
I hereby declare Macross Frontier OST 1 to be the animé soundtrack of the year, and all upcoming titles for the remaining half of the year shall have to live in shame knowing that they will never live up to the greatness that is this collection of pure awesome. It’s so good that I translated [...]
Oh my god! It’s finally here! The Holy Grail! The first song that Maaya and her former mentor Yoko Kanno have worked together on in almost half a decade! Triangler is the first opening song for Macross Frontier. Lyrics translation and fanboying after the break.
Dancing in the velvet moon is one of the songs on Nana Mizuki’s new mini album STARCAMP EP, and it also happens to be the ED theme to Rosario + Vampire‘s unbearably fanservicy anime adaptation, which, I shall once again take the opportunity to remind everyone, is a travesty to the awesome page-turner that is [...]
Ash Like Snow is the second OP theme to Gundam 00. I was never a fan of the brilliant green and I still think that this song doesn’t feel OP-ish, but the lyrics are great and the booklet art has Tomoko sitting on Kaneda’s bike while holding an orange Haro, and that’s pretty awesome in [...]
By my usual post-title-naming convention, this entry should have been “Gundam 00 – Friends”, but I decided that G00 isn’t worthy of this song. Also, I think I have more than enough entries on that as it is. So anyway, I translated the full lyrics of Stephanie’s latest song Friends, which also happens to be [...]
