Trying to Revisit Galneryus

October 19, 2016 Leave a comment

I can’t do it. I used to listen to these guys a lot and many other bands like them, but I can’t even finish listening to this song. Speed metal has lost its appeal to me. They all sound the same. The constant double bass drumming bores me, I need rhythm variety. But that tells me the genre is dead to me. I enjoyed my time back in the day listening to this type of music, but now it’s time to move on.

I’m not a fan of Porter Robinson’s music, but this is one of the best music videos I’ve seen in a long time. This 6 minute short told a better story than Your Lie in April (Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso). It’s beautiful, had a theme going, told a solid narrative, and ultimately bittersweet. It’s funny how a 6 min video can achieve so much as opposed to 22 episode show. Shelter is a must watch.

Anime Season Roundup

October 8, 2016 Leave a comment


91 Days – 12 years ago (wow so much time has passed), I declared Gungrave as my all time favorite anime and nothing could ever stand on par with it since. This time, a show competent enough has stepped into the same level of Gungrave quality. Every episode has been stellar. Like Gungrave, it’s a mafia revenge story minus the sci-fi twists. This show is anime storytelling at its finest, a Shakespearean, how to write a good plot 101. Only spanning at 12 episodes total, you have no excuse to not watch this. It’s a must. Rating: 10/10

Mob Psycho 100 – Very entertaining and humorous throughout. By the same creator as One Punch Man. The sketchy animation style is quite unique leaving no animated shortcuts making it feel refreshing. If the studio decided to not continue with a 2nd season or sequel, I’d be completely fine with that. Rating: 9/10

Macross Delta – I really enjoyed the show and wanted to love it, but that last episode was basically a big FU from Shoji Kawamori. It was rushed, half assed, mostly unresolved, and just an unsatisfying conclusion. The finale doesn’t need to be Macross Frontier levels of action packed, but just give us a proper closure. After all that tease, we still don’t know who Lady M is. Although the love triangle was resolved, it was done so predictably because only one of the girls got enough emphasis in the relationship. I have no issues with Freyja being picked but Mirage was shafted so hard that it was hardly a love triangle to begin with. The villain’s motive was essentially the same as Grace from Macross Frontier trying to connect with everyone’s mind. So what’s gonna happen to Windemere now after they retreated? Just call it quits after that temporary alliance? The series needs an extra 10 eps or a sequel. IF they decide to do multi-part movies by alternate retelling the story, they better tell us who Lady M is at least. Rating: 8/10

Berserk – Not the adaptation we deserve, but the one we need. I thought the reception was so bad it wouldn’t merit a season 2 but apparently it did. Despite of the ugly visuals, I didn’t hate this show. It was about time to see Berserk that’s not the Golden Age arc. Overall, above average at best. I’ll watch season 2 but not excited for it. Rating: 6/10

Tales of Zestiria the X – Why can’t ufotable adapt Berserk instead of this trash? It’s funny how this show really pushes Alisha to be part of the main cast even though she plays small roles in the game. Also, what the hell were they thinking shoving Tales of Berseria in the middle? Sure I get they want to promote the game but not like this. I had absolutely no idea what Berseria had anything to do with Zestiria until I had to google it. Having two plots in a single show will only result in a mess. That Berseria insert should’ve been DVD only eps. The animation was godly but undeserved. Rating: 5/10

Updated: My Top 10 Macross Songs

October 5, 2016 Leave a comment


Now that Macross Delta is over, time to update this list.­čÖé

To my surprise, the music in Delta ended up pretty good. Mikumo, Kaname, and Freyja being the standouts. Disappointingly though, Walkure is severely underutilized if this is all there is. Just imagine the merchandising potential this group has. 5 members, 5 times the music. They could easily release solo albums from each members singing all the songs individually. For example, if you don’t like Mikumo’s inclusion of the song, listen to the other versions. Anyways, let’s get this over with.

  1. Sheryl Nome starring May’n – Yousei (Macross Frontier)
  2. CMJK, Sharon Apple – INFORMATION HIGH (Macross PLUS)
  3. Walk├╝re – Hametsu no Junjou (Macross Delta)
  4. Walk├╝re – Kaze wa Yokoku Naku Fuku (Macross Delta)
  5. Walk├╝re – Walk├╝re Attack! (Macross Delta)
  6. Lynn Minmay – An Angel’s Paint (Macross: Do You Remember Love?)
  7. Fire Bomber – Remember 16 (Macross 7)
  8. May’n & Megumi Nakajima – Sayonara no Tsubasa ~ the end of triangle (Macross Frontier)
  9. Fire Bomber – Diamond Calling (Macross 7)
  10. Akino Arai – Idol Talk (Macross PLUS)

Still the Same

An example of a website behind on times. It stubbornly stays the same trying to keep itself alive.


All that space on the sides. Imagine the disaster when 4k users have to deal with this atrocity. They would need a magnifying glass to just read the text.

On this day and age, mainstream users are rocking 1080p resolutions on their PCs or whatever devices. Due to evolving techs out there, websites need to make changes in order to be optimized for easier viewing.


Deleting a video should be the editor’s choice, NOT THE SITE’S, regardless of reasons. It’s no wonder why the org is dying. Editors these days transitioning to youtube.


Can we please have those steps all in ONE page? Also, finding the anime/music is a pain in the ass sometimes.


Want to search the AMV by anime or music, this is how they STILL do it. The list pops up on the left side. Oh my eyes.


You can’t be serious…


We’re in the 2016 and this forum STILL refuses to have a fucking edit button on user’s posts. One step forward, two steps backwards. It makes no freakin sense to not have that. People make mistake whenever they post whether it’d be spelling/grammar or accidentally pressing the wrong button.


After clicking on Local for download, this donation page still shoves you in the face before downloading making you one click away from downloading.

Here’s another annoyance that’s been bothering me ever since I uploaded the Shinjuku Station bumpers onto their site, THEY STILL FORCE YOU TO USE FTPs TO UPLOAD. GET ON WITH THE TIMES YOU HOES!

It’s a ghost town. Very few members are still active. The site rarely updates. Do I still recommend this site for your main AMV headquarters? It’s hard to say. With youtube cracking down videos with copyright strikes, there’s not much of a choice, it’s the last resort to watch AMVs.

music review: lynch – AVANTGARDE

September 18, 2016 Leave a comment


It’s become clear to me that every album lynch releases, they move up the ranks of my top favorite bands. They’re now ranked 5th on my list. One of the things I love about their discography is that all of their song titles are in English. That alone saves me time of retagging their tracks from kanji to romaji. AVANTGARDE is an improvement from their previous work, D.A.R.K.-In the Name of Evil-. The typical lynch fashion of alternative metal with more oomph. More memorable songs here, however there are still filler tracks throughout. If I had to pick a favorite song here, that would be UNELMA. It’s got the same song writing characteristic from abingdon boys school and the style from the GazettE making this a very easy song to get into.

Highlights: UNELMA, PHANTOM, F.A.K.E.

Song of the Day: Moe Shop – Superstar (w/ Hentai Dude)

September 11, 2016 Leave a comment

First off, awe inspiring cinematography in that video. 2nd, this song is weeaboo to the max. Just listen to the lyrics, it’s hilarious! But the tune is so catchy I can’t help it. This is the kind of rap music I can tolerate. Although I dislike hearing profanity in songs, at least this is better than ghetto rap that you typically hear on the radio. The album is free to download.
