I’m not sure how many people still follow what I write because the updates have become so sparse, but from may 31st till June 9th, I’m going on a holiday to America and I’ll be visiting San Francisco and New York, so if any of you happen to live there and want to meet up: just go ahead and drop a comment. :)

    Ahh, awesome! You will love it. :) I’m in LA unfortunately, but those are some great cities to visit.

    • Grace says:

      Editing this to add that you should come down to Los Angeles, which is an AMAZING city so long as you can rent a car. :) The Mexican here food is to die for

  2. K-Off says:

    Visting coast to coast, huh? I highly recommend you visit some jazz and comedy clubs in New York, and visit fisherman’s wharf in San Francisco. Best seafood ever.

  3. Tom says:

    2 of the worst places in America.

    • K-Off says:

      You must be a conservative, eh? You can literally walk all day in SF and NY without seeing a conservative even once.

    • m says:

      I think you meant to write two of the most desirable locations to live in the country, that also happen to be two of the best places to go for food and the arts. I mean if I were going to pick places to go for a vacation I’d also include some places with natural splendor, but even Europeans don’t receive so much holiday time that I should be spending it for them.

    • Jalapeno Bagel says:

      I agree with the others, some of the best eats of the country there. Perhaps not the most American of cities, but they’re definitely representative of the melting pot the US is. Not to mention our general scenic tourist spots suck.

  4. jcb says:

    Yah, New Orleans, Austin, Albuquerque and Las Vegas would be better. Maybe Seattle too. Or Portland. And I would drive and visit all the national parks along the way.

  5. Rayzakk says:

    Couldn’t pay me enough to go to San Fransicko.

  6. Firechick says:

    I don’t live near those areas. Sorry. New York is two states away from where I live. Ugh!

  7. tanuki says:

    I Live in BK. Hit me back on the e-mail if you wanna.

  8. fauntleroy says:

    I live in the SF area if you’d like to meet up.

  9. LovelyAngel says:

    I don’t live in either locale, although San Francisco is my favorite city to visit, and I went there last autumn for vacation. I’m very content to live in Portland (Oregon), though, and rarely have the desire to travel.

    I’m commenting merely to let you know that I still follow your blog, regardless of the frequency of your posts. (^_^)

  10. omo says:

    Somewhat a long time reader of this blog, so I’m interested if you swing by Manhattan (I work there).

  11. Happio says:

    Around manhattan/Brooklyn NYc. Free to meet up (send me an email) :D

  12. Forcystus says:

    I live close to NYC, about 40 minutes. I’ve been following your blog for a few years. I use it as a reference when new seasons start to weed out the bad from the good. You are usually spot on with your reviews so its a big help when I am trying to find something good to watch.

    So when you visit new york let me know, id be interested. Cheers.

  13. Tassia says:

    I’ve been following your blog for 3.5 years and would take a bus to NYC to meet you if I could afford to at the moment.

  14. UmbrellaMan says:

    I do live in the Bay Area, however, I myself will be on vacation. Besides doing the obvious touristy things in San Fran, e.g. Golden Gate Bridge, Union Square, Pier 39, Alcatraz, the Embarcadero, Chinatown, you need to take the time to drive up (if you have a car available to you) to visit Twin Peaks for a breath taking panoramic of San Francisco (and on a clear day Oakland as well): http://sfrecpark.org/destination/twin-peaks/. Well worth the trip. Plus, I recommend the burgers from The Burger Meister, the one in the Castro district is my fave: http://www.burgermeistersf.com. Additionally, if you are into theatre, both NY and SF have great shows. Enjoy your vacation, and remember that SF has very strange weather, and the Bay Area in general has been having some seriously odd weather for this time of year too. So it wouldn’t be unheard of if one day it is foggy and freezing (and I use this term liberally, remember I am from the Bay, so anything colder than 62*F is f*ucking freezing) and the next sunny and 92 out.

  15. Bam says:

    I’m in San Fransisco, you should tag along and check out the music scene and the nightlife with us ;-)

  16. sudachi says:

    Great to hear you’ll be visiting the US! I discovered your blog back in 2010 when I lived in Louisville but here in SF now. Would be fun to meet up if you’re getting some folks together to say hello or chat about anime. Maybe a beer(or Melon Soda ;) in Japantown? Not sure what dates you’re in town but just a heads up there’s a Studio Ghibli festival running through 6/8 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts: http://www.ybca.org/studio-ghibli

    @CloudedAnime, Normally I am not too keen on others using this Shoutbox to push their blogs but I will allow it this time. (Pretty certain that compliment was insincere and being pasted everywhere else you are pushing that blog. The joys of self promotion…)
    Just ease off on the exclamation marks there and keep at it.

    That said adapting manwha isn’t entirely unheard of, afterall kurokami and freezing got adaptations.

    I was very surprised to see noblesse was adapted, I read early chapters of the webtoon before it really got going but just fell out of reading it.

    Did anyone watch the Noblesse OVA? I thought the first half had rushed pacing but it got pretty good after that. Not to mention the animation is just gorgeous, they managed to get it to look like the webtoon.

Boku dake ga Inai Machi – 05

When it rains it pours and Boku dake isn’t pulling any punches. Hinazuki is gone and the only hint of her we see is what looks to be her dead body in front of her parents, one of whom is panicking. With this we have two possibilities. Either they happened upon Hinazuka’s dead body or […]

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu – 04

Well it seems like I have to eat my words as Yakumo is quite the ladies man. Which is odd when he clearly doesn’t have any interest in interacting with women. Yakumo has a fruitful love life despite his apathy towards love in general. Yakumo and Sukeroku’s relationship has certainly gotten more easygoing as the […]

Schwarzesmarken – 04

This episode starts with a groan as we meet a new member of the cast, that being Theodor’s sister who on first sight hugs with with the ever so traditional “Onii-chan!” The sister does bring some good developments to the table, namely the machination the Stasi has in store for her, but I really wish […]

Boku dake ga Inai Machi – 04

There certainly is a layer of dread from this episodes beginning as we see happy events unfold. Things are looking up, history is changing, Kayo is finally getting out of an abusive relationship with her mother and finding happiness. But much like Satou is feeling, there is a unease at these developments. Things are going […]

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu – 03

From the looks of things this series will be focusing primarily on the past of Yakumo as the stylish opening seems to place emphasis on the characters of the flashback. Rakugo is surprisingly abset this week as World War II causes Yakumo to be left behind as his Teacher and Sukeroku go out to entertain […]

Schwarzesmarken – 03

Schwarzesmarken remains a strange specimen of an anime, while still not excelling it is clear it has the potential to. So why is it not a great anime? Well it’s beating the same point as my last post but I do think characterisation is key here. In this episode we had two characters introduced whose […]

Boku dake ga Inai Machi – 03

When it comes to matters of time travel, it’s always a wonder to consider just what rules it follows. Time travel, much like alternate realities is one of the biggest can of worms to open when writing a story. Mainly because it demands the viewer keeps in mind a series of characters,settings and event which […]

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu – 02

So we enter a flashback on how the master became the man he is as well as how he met Hatsuda. It’s interesting to see the man who always seemed to be in control be a person of much more vulnerable status. As a child we see the aspects that he will ebody in the […]

Schwarzesmarken – 02

Two episodes in and I certainly can feel that Schwarzesmarken is missing something to truly make it work. The setting has no problems and what’s presented is interesting but for some reason this isn’t as engaging as it should be. One could blame the art which had some spotty parts during this episode or the […]

Gangsta. – 58/100

Gangsta is an anime with a lot of things going for it. A mature cast, gritty themes, a interesting setting and a trio of main characters who can carry the show. However due to a number of factors it never quite reached its potential. The main trio of characters are unconventional and quite interesting with […]

Gakkou Gurashi! – 80/100

Gakkou is one with a good facade as promotional material would have you believe it was some dime a dozen moe slice of life. I was one who wasn’t fooled by the cute cuddly exterior but I was truly surprised with just how good this anime ended up being. Gakkou is one of those rare […]

Little Witch Academia The Enchanted Parade – 81/100

I wonder when it was that a film being childish became a flaw. As a medium grows it takes steps to aim to mature itself and seek a more intellectual level of presenting entertainment. Animation did it as Anime aimed to explore terrontry that cartoons refuse to explore and video games only recently broke away […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks Review – 85/100

For a long time now this adaption has been the dreams of many a Fate fan with many believing it would never come to pass, but now that it is here is it everything that we dreamed? Short answer to this is no, long answer is nearly. I feel this show will have many divided […]

Shirobako Review – 80/100

When you see a harem anime and sigh as the breasts of the female lead jiggle with every step and wind that can flip a skirt it’s easy to forget that somewhere in Japan a group of people worked hard to get that jiggle right and draw each frame of animation. The hardships of the […]

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero. He started off as an assistant director to Monster, in my opinion a big reason why that series got such a ridiculously solid adaptation, and then in 2008 he came with the groundbreaking Mouryou no Hako. No TV-series […]

Kick Heart

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

Kyousogiga Review – 90/100

Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a wonderful thing because that allows us to have so many different forms of media that all aim toward their own niche. My blog is obviously written from the perspective of my own taste, and even when a show doesn’t cater to it (which is nearly always), I love […]

Ore no Nounai Sentakushi ga, Gakuen Lovecome o Zenryoku de Jama Shiteiru Review – 80/100

Noucome! You do not want to know how long I have been waiting for a series like this. More than half a decade, at the very least. Finally a series comes along and puts the incredibly overused harem genre in its place. And it actually does it well. Thank you! So to elaborate: the harem […]
