.hack was incredibly dull and pretentious. This naturally means there are about thirty five sequels that have come out through the years. It never fails to ask the question, can we make dull people playing a dull game interesting? To be fair, we could never get past the early espisodes/volumes. A lot of mangas centered on MMOs also seem to explore in the same vein. Read more>>

On this episode of VG Pulse, Kas is back in the UK and is coming to us in HD thanks to her shiny new microphone! We start off with side notes about exploded laptops and overpriced deviant art adoptables, before heading off to the ezmail (gasp!). We then transition into the news, and embark on a deep and meaningful journey through the concept of Cardboard, before finishing off with Millennium’s review of Game Dev Tycoon! All this and more up next on VGP193! -Aki Read more>>

There are a lot of people who will bad mouth the nineties. Mostly those who grew up in the eighties and associate the appearance of acne, hair and an awkward feeling in their pants when they spot their classmates in gym class. There are plenty of good things that came out of it though like the cultural cornerstones of pogs and Spawn which continue to impact millions everyday.

On that note, we decided to talk about The Fugitive(1993). Based on the TV show from the mid sixties, it’s more evidence that an adaptation doesn’t have to suck. It stars Harrison Ford when he possessed intensity and didn’t just stare off into space, wishing someone would run him over and end it. Yes folks, Han Solo wasn’t always a despondent mannequin who mumbled. Read more>>

E here! No lie– this was one of my favorite parts of Animeland Wasabi. Walking through the dining area, I heard the faint serenade of the Tetris theme. I grabbed Weltall and drug him through the crowd to the piano to get a closer look. Read more>>

Greetings everyone. In place of an AP show this week I offer this interview of 萩尾 望都 Hagio Moto. We were lucky in that Weltall was able to get an interview with this pioneer of shojo manga. I have undertaken the transcription of the Japanese portion of the conversation, for those interested. The translator that was provided was very good. In addition to translation Ms. Hagio’s answers he also added some extra context as he felt was needed. I only transcribed the questions and the Japanese section of the interview.

Armed with a new camera that can withstand the brunt of energetic kids (the Olympus Stylus-8000 Tough), I bring you the first pictures of fun Engrish shirts.

A bit deeper than I expect when I think “Airwalk”, but I guess it ties in.

inner peace and enlightenment can only be achieved after there are no places left on your body to bruise
Airwalk
A DAILY DOSE OF FREEDOM
when this happens, take a moment to look down, and realize you’ve found the ground whether you’re ready or not
upon the attempt to transcend the metaphysical one can easily get lost alone

One word… “ElJohn”? Seriously?

I’m currently watching TV on my DS, yay for Japanese tech. The Minshuto (DJP) has 276 seats out of the 480, with the Jiminto (LDP) only having 82. This means that Aso Taro is out of power and Hatoyama Yukio is in power. Join the rest of Japan in rejoicing that one group of old, power-hungry and corrupt men has been replaced with an almost identical group (heck, they were the same party until 1996) of old, power-hungry and corrupt men. Yay for choice!

EDIT: Now the DJP is at 303, LDP at 115, with only 14 seats left to report. Komeito has 19, Communist party has 8, Social Democratic has 5, with 16 seats split among other small parties.

So, I spent some time with the Gundam. We got up close and personal, I hesitate to call it a “thing”, but there was a connection there. I approached slowly.

Alright, I’m back, unpacked, and ready to talk about Comiket.

I’m sure you’ve already heard, but this was a record attendance event. Over 560,000 over the three days. Talk about crazy. Since I’ve already talked about Day 1 in my previous post, let’s talk about Day 2.

First off, after finally getting a chance to go through the Catalog, I have a better feel for the event. Day 1 appears to be a lot of Yaoi stuff, Day 2 is a lot of Game/Videos and Day 3 is a lot of the male-oriented doujin. Of course, every day has lots of doujin, but that’s the emphasis. So, plan in hand, I was ready.

So I just got back from Comiket 76, Day 1. It was a wild time. I left the hotel just after 8am, got to the Rinkai line, Kokusai-Tenjijou station around 8:45 or so. The crowds weren’t bad until I saw the actual line. Then I followed the traffic around to the end of the line, almost a kilometer away!
