Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu 5 – Hallellujah, it’s raining meta

Is the average Japanese Otaku in love with traps???!!! There are man-maid cafes in Akiba and now there is a dude that looks like a lady in Chinese dress in this show, what the hey?

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

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

Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu 3 – dates from hell

Something I never had to endure, fortunately or unfortunately, depending on which way you’re looking at, or which direction you’re looking at if you were the pantie gazing, people stalking not to mention nose bleeding guy in the show.

Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu 1 – Edutainment

From watching the PV (below), I was not impressed for some reason. I see a lot of girls, one magical girl, hear Batou (Akio Ohtsuka) and something that seem fairly stereotypical. I guess I was watch all these PVs at the same time without any subtitle (I didn’t use the one below). The addition of Pokemon/Yugioh style battles seemed childish and dumb at the time.

Then I watched the anime (MV-style highlights below)

I was not only pleasantly surprised but intrigued to a large degree!
