Ode To Black Day

Black Day comes again… Feb. 14th is Valentine’s Day, Mar. 14th is White Day, and Apr. 14th is Black Day. My fellow Otaku, let’s celebrate this day by eating Jajangmyeon at a Korean noodle shop. But first, let me present you this song “Otaku Bossa” to commemorate this bleak day.

またブラック・デーが来てしまった。。。2月14日はバレンタイン、3月14日はホワイト・デー、そして4月14日がブラック・デーです。オタクのみなさん、一緒に韓国麺料理店でチャジャンミョンを食べようではありませんか!でも、その前に、この曲「Otaku Bossa」でこのみじめな日を祝わせてください。

Tsundere Banana 03102010 – Got Ass?

Show notes:

Losers of the week:

Funimation putting out censored DVDs for Vampire Bund – they’re afraid of their corporate asses get hauled in jail. But in any event, a light loser rating from me because I can understand the cause of making money.

College Students protesting about cutting in funding: http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-5445-Politics-in-Education-Examiner~y2010m3d4-Students-passionately-protest-cuts-in-education-funding?cid=sharing_twitter:5445

Some women in New Jersey got caulk injection in the butt for rear enhancement

Winners of the Week:

Anime Expo – invited key people such as Nabeshin and Asakawa Yuu – they’re making inroads but with a corporate guy running everything, I’m giving it a light winner rating.

Funimation – streaming Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu (AKA Baka and Test — Summon the Beasts) – great choice.

Gorillaz – Plastic Beach – fun and great for chilling, even chilling in the green room, which I’ve never been!

Warning: crass caulk jokes and bad accents


Tsudere Banana 03032010 – Hypocrites Pissing Me Off

Show notes:

Losers of the week:

Kirsten Dunst – see her in the Akiba film

Nick Simmons – it’s all over the net

The people that sent Christopher Handley to jail – it’s all over the net pt. 2

Winners of the Week:

The Noto Mamiko bug AKA Pandemonium Bug – Gintama 197

Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn 01 – easily found

A reader’s mother for watching Chu-Bra! 01 and laughing during the talking breasts part – according to the reader, she did not love it but thought was all right.

Warning: No holds barred with all guns blazing.

Tsundere Banana 08 – iPad and Durarara and Fail Loli Show and Kawasumi Ayako Character

What it is: a podcast/audio column

Length: around 10 minutes. Less than 10:30. (YES! I hit 10:00 mark and didn’t go over this time!)

Host: Ray from Taipei.

Frequency: Mondays at 10 PM

What it’s about -

1. looking into my so-called Otaku life.

2. Thoughts and opinions on my observations for many things, mostly anime and culture.

3. Inner workings, ideas and others behind the scenes at Anime Diet (animediet.net)

Comment: It’s upclose (perhaps too much for comfort), personal (I got good hygenes) and raw. It’s Ray unplugged.

This episode: Ray talks about the site’s plan with iPad (Wikipedia), which will not include any PMS related activities. He discusses shows of this season – he likes Durarara, he loves Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu (God I hate spelling this one), he doesn’t like Dance in the Vampire Bund, he hates Seikon no Qwaser, and he gushes about Ladies vs Butlers.

Matt’s thoughts on Durarara 1 & 2

Anime Diet’s articles on Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu

Article’s on Dance in the Vampire Bund

Articles on Ladies vs Butlers

(No articles on Seikon no Qwaser – why the hell would any of us wants to cover that?)

Tsundere Banana – Real Life Public Rape

In case you didn’t know this already, a 15 year-old-guy, a high school freshmen, (allegedly) publiclly raped a 26-year-old woman in broad daylight in Toledo, Ohio, last week (no, it’s not quite current news).

I just feel that I have to say something, particularly because I enjoyed Detroit Metal City Anime and its antics. But this is…Just wrong, man.

Tsundere Banana 7 – the Lover of Anime

What it is: a podcast/audio column

Length: around 10 minutes. Less than 10:30.

Host: Ray from Taipei.

Frequency: Mondays at 10 PM (well, you get two this week, neither of which is posted on Monday)

What it’s about -

1. looking into my so-called Otaku life.

2. Thoughts and opinions on my observations for many things, mostly anime and culture.

3. Inner workings, ideas and others behind the scenes at Anime Diet (animediet.net)

Comment: It’s upclose (perhaps too much for comfort), personal (I got good hygenes) and raw. It’s Ray unplugged.

This episode: Ray is somewhat drunk and he proceeds to discuss one of the reasons he started watching anime, his reluctance to let the ippanjin into the circle and his desire to make people on the Anime Diet Staff into managers and his business philosophy. Sorry if this doesn’t seem anime related much! After all, Uncle Ray is a little emotional!

Oh and all his thoughts started from his newly acquired WWII era Japanese relic sword that worthed little because it was probably forged by a bunch of nobodies. Ray is weird, eh?

Tsundere Banana Special – Haruhi Calls!

In this episode of Tsundere Banana, Ray discovers an event to promote the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya Movie in L.A. on 5:30 PM on January 25th at Anime Jungle at 319 East 2nd St. #103 (213) 621-1660. The TV crew is from Cine-tsu from TV Tokyo.

He mentions a fan contribution to us for Cosplay Pictures from Comiket 77 (thanks, kona-chan!)

He also shares some of the choices for his Top Ten list for the decade of 2000 to 2009. Some of which are Haruhi, Lucky Star, Claymore and Candy Boy.

Lastly, he talks about the Claymore Petition (INSTRUCTION).

Simple, eh?
