Farewell to WordPress…

January 12, 2009 at 6:35 pm | Posted in Site | 1 Comment

Well, WordPress.com anyway. Simplicity is now here! (Or you can clicky cute sleepy Rin to get there now too)


I will keep this simple so for once I won’t waste any more time.

After about eight months (more or less), Simplicity is leaving WordPress.com and moving to a proper host. I have also been sucked in by 7’s offer of free hosting.

So from now on, you can find me at Simplicity’s new home:


This Simplicity will stay up so that we can all avoid broken links and such, but please do follow me on Kokidokom from now on. I look forward to seeing everyone there!

Trap Banner for Maria†Holic

January 10, 2009 at 4:33 am | Posted in Site | 11 Comments


Once again, I’m making a safe bet before all the new shows I plan to watch for the season air and putting up the banner for my favorite series of the season. This time, to (hopefully) no one’s surprise, Maria+Holic is my pick (yeah, I’m only doing the real cross in posts people).

I kind of went out of what I normally like to do and stayed even more in my comfort zone than ever with this banner.

OMG. I was actually excited about this episode before it aired. When was the last time that happened? Unfortunately my excitement immediately turned to despair upon seeing that new opening (I still want to cry when I see it). But I got picked back up pretty quickly.

Also, this is my first time watching it with the CR subtitles. So, lots of new things this week. A technically new arc, a new opening, and a new way to watch it. Let’s see how it all goes.

(Warning for overdone screencapping again, 54 caps this time)

Sakura Hime Kaden – Chapter 02

*sigh* Ara ara~ It’s the first time in my life I ever felt like saying that (or typing…whatever) but there it is. My, oh my, this series (and these characters) are trouble for me. We’re only in the second chapter, so my fellow Tanemura fans will have to forgive me for a little critique. Things that I can still notice before falling helplessly in love with a story and characters.

Also, because I haven’t gotten permission to really use scans from anyone scanning the series (I will be taking care of that before the next chapter), I’m going to keep it short this week and just discuss the one thing that really comes to mind for this chapter.

(Obligatory warning, because as usual, this post is meant to be read after the chapter is read. Scanlations are out at Aerandria.)

First Impressions – White Album

This post took a while to get out because quite honestly, I couldn’t decide how I felt about it. It’s kind of boring, but I still think I’ll get what I want from it. I’m watching it to (hopefully) laugh at (or just follow) a love triangle. Getting invested in it works sometimes too, but I wanted to laugh and look at it shallowly. I…probably get to do just that.

It was the anime I was looking forward to most, but because it’s kind of fun to laugh at am I disappointed? Hell no. All I wanted from the anime was Nana-sama and love triangle dorama that will lead to a bitchslap at some point in the future. I believe I will get that. I was actually kind of happy that everyone called it crap (because it means I get to blog it with less competition, hahaha). Of course, I tend to think everyone thinks it’s just crap because it’s boring, but whatever. Crap is still crap and I don’t blame anyone from labeling this as such. It is boring (I think the pacing right now is better for a drama).

Weekly Anime (12/29 – 1/4)

Well, I almost got everything I was supposed to this week. I’ll probably get through the rest of ToraDora! tomorrow or something. I kind of got distracted by the new season of anime. Starting a new season takes up a lot more time I think. Because you pretty much always have something to say.

Anime: CHAOS;HEAD (12 END),  ToraDora! (11), Plus Shakugan no Shana.

Plans for 2009

January 2, 2009 at 6:50 pm | Posted in Personal, Site | 20 Comments


A post that perhaps should have been done yesterday, but if I have one resolution this year it’s going to be to stop stressing myself out over just about everything. All I really seem to accomplish when I go into rush mode is making myself sicker. Also, this post is kind of unnecessary, but I feel it’s a good way of trying to say that I’m not lazy (but I am)

All of my plans basically amount to things that I’ve been working on for a while, but think will finally get off the ground in 2009. I don’t really do resolutions. The only difference between 2008 and 2009 for me is one digit in the date. That said, I do hope to accomplish a lot more this year. Some of those goals relate to anime and such so here’s a post to let out some of the stuff that gathers in my head. Some of it’s even related to blogging!

First Impressions – Maria†Holic

This post feels so late because of the early stream…and since I watched the early stream too. None the less, here we go. (My First post of 2009!)

This anime is officially my favorite of the winter season (yes it’s that easy to decide). I absolutely love it when an anime surpasses expectations that are already…pretty darn high. But of course my sadistic trap anime does just that (is this the only anime in the new sadistic trap genre?).

I don’t think I can remember laughing so much and enjoying a completely new series in quite some time. It’s all owed to Maria, who is now the best trap evaaar in my opinion.

Favorites of ’08

This is late. I intended to have this up really early on December 30th. Now I think it might not even be 2008 somewhere (I don’t know. I don’t keep track). But anyway, now that the new year is upon is, it’s time for me to finally properly reflect on 2008. Like so many others before me, I do this with my favorite things in anime.

I wanted to keep mine until after Christmas when I’m pretty much guaranteed that nothing new will come to prove your list wrong. The 30th would have been safe, but yeah. I missed out.
