Farewell, Dai-Gurren-Dan…

November 26, 2007

And so, like all good stories, Gurren Lagann came to end, for me, this weekend.

Like my post-Full Metal Alchemist emo, I feel I may never enjoy an anime as much, ever again. Fortunately, I suppose, I will inevitably be proven wrong. But for now, TTGL is the finest series of anime I have ever encountered, and I can’t bring myself to watch anything else.
Perhaps a severe analogy, but it’s like falling in love with the perfect woman, only to have her die or leave you. It screws you over. If not for life, at least for a very, very long time.

Animax ZA site

November 19, 2007

Animax has a site for ZA. Although it looks like they pretty much just copied the German site. Regardless, a nifty resource for those still struggling (in futility) to schedule their viewing chronologically.

Hellgate is failure

November 19, 2007

So Hellgate is here, after years of hype and hope from all of us aging, decrepit Diablo fans praying for Roper’s new studio to truly recapture that same recipe of addictive hack ‘n slash. HG:L seemed to promise everything, on paper: the same gameplay, a hawt 3d engine, randomized levels, and a Blizzard-quality experience considering they’re all ex-Blizzard. And I mean everyone knows that if you came from Blizzard, you can do no wrong! It’s about the people, not the company? Amirite?

November 9, 2007

Seems more than a couple people have been questioning what the heck is up with Animax’s episode ordering/schedule. Below is a reply scavenged from a topic on DSTV.com’s forums. I’ve emphasized the interesting bits.

The Shinji-Kamina Manliness Scale

November 7, 2007

Originally encounted trawling the delicious archives of Derailed By Darry, the Shinki-Kamina Manliness scale is an arbitrary measurement of a character’s… well.. ‘manliness‘ along a scale of 1 through 10, 1 being the lowest of the low – aka Shinji from Evangelion, and 10 being the epitome of testorone and burning spirit rawr. I couldn’t find and actual scale though, so I’ve come up with one of my own.

direction…

November 7, 2007

First off, sorry about some comments going missing. I was messing around with content, screwed up and had to recreate some posts.

Anyhoo, the 4-1-1 is, I’m probably going to focus Fail2 on anime, pretty much. Yup. It’s now an anime blog, virtually exclusively. With a touch of random here and there.

The rest of my blogging will take place over at Goonsquad, where I’ll attempt to occasionally post something meaningful or clever or just plain abrasive.
