Monthly Archives: October 2011

The first of several changes.

What a strange month of October. Bad health, self-inflicted partition errors, Qaddafi bites the dust, not to mention I am so in love with the Fall 2011 anime season. But, this post was meant to be a minor update on one of the changes to my blog, and I’d like to announce the new plan in regards to posting certain things: WordPress will be the more extremely perverted side of things. A lot of this mostly revolves around stuff relating to 18+ stuff that’s not appropriate for my blog here, which I want to avoid the Adult content rating as much as possible for Blogger. According to my observations of WordPress-based hentai doujin scanlator teams, it seems one does not need to engage in that extra step of “you are about to enter a mature site” thing Blogger has, supposing you do make an 18+ blog.

I know it seems like a weird decision, but consider this an evaluation for myself: can I completely move to WordPress, or can I not live without Blogger? I have a lot of fun memories here, while WordPress…. looks awfully plain. Maybe that’s where its strength lies…

Anyways, visit the Majikoi episode 02 uncensored pic above over at the wordpress post!

Majikoi Uncensored… partly

Ah, the beauty of girls... without blockades(Yeah her hand is that big). WordPress, why do you make this so hard...

Well that doesn’t look good. I don’t mean the girls, I mean why in the world is WordPress so…. I don’t know, screwy? I know this is my first WordPress post, but it’s so unfriendly. For example, I do image captions a lot. With Blogger I get to set it manually, but WordPress has an option to make it automatically. Should be easy, right? Wrong. Apparently, adding the picture first would not let me type into the body of my post. I had to switch to html editing, type some random jargon after the tags, and then I can type outside the darn caption box. I don’t swear often, but damn I had to do it now. My blinking text cursor disappears sometimes too…

Yes,  I use Firefox. Yes, I have no choice because of my capitalistic wireless carrier (seriously, compressing the entire internet all based on User agents for IE, FF, and Chrome? Sunnova…), and what the bloody hell, Chrome is so… okay, I did search for stuff relating to the User agent, and I have not found an add-on for user Agent editing like Firefox’s User Agent Switcher. So there, Firefox as my browser of choice (or my lack of choice).

Ranting aside, WordPress has a lot going for it in regards to these nice set of options. Just… I just don’t like all this mass dependancy on javascripting (Or how about this: a flash uploader by default for adding images? How much did Adobe pay you guys…:P) I switched to a browser based uploader for my images in a heart beat. I guess I need time to work on this whole WordPress’ing…

Ok finally ending my rants, let’s talk about the picture, ja? Why is it uncensored “partly”? Well, I abandoned the uncensoring project for this scene. There’s a number of reasons, mostly but not limited to:

-This was worked on right after ep 02 came out. Of course, shortly afterwards my laptop needed serious maintenance, so a considerable amount of time passed and the novelty of the joke is a bit stale.

-This is actually a composite of 2 720p-sized scenes. I failed to realize that the scene where the dog floats out of the bath was an easier edit than my first choice, the very first time you see this scene (when the girls started chatting). So I thought it’d be easier to add my edits of the first scene with edits of the second scene, and we have the not so bad looking incomplete image above.

-I suffered several health issues during the time since Majikoi ep 02 aired, which just several hours ago I suffered a sever migraine (a recurring health problem, if you did not know).

-I decided to… fix a Charlotte Dunois image instead. :p

-When the eps proceeding ep 02 had even more fun scenes to uncensor, I realized this wasn’t as unique as my Mayo Chiki endeavor (that episode 05 thing).

-As anyone who had to move stuff from one hdd to another, I can tell you I’m still having a heck of a time moving stuff around. I had to move over 300GB of data around…

And, last but not least. Look forward to my Shirley edit 😀

RE: the controversy, Unbalanced x2 Chapter 81

Don’t ask, just read. Trust me, if you read Unbalance x2, this is one you don’t want to miss. A warning, you might need to put your drink down and not eat anything before proceeding:

High quality download

😄

Really, I so wanted to see more of the twintail laying the smack down on the lying….never mind.

I wonder how readers would have reacted had Jin-ho done the hitting…

In order to prevent myself from going sane, I had to play my “INSANE” playlist during the making of this manga parody, which includes Dance, Funk, Electronic honky tonk, songs with vocals and Ani songs and even The a La Menthe, Noisia’s Machine Gun, and Track #2 from the Free Bulletstorm OST.

Some info, and jokes if they don’t make sense:

-Hmm… where do I start. I was chewing some gum for 2 hours, and then found the time to work on this parody, and apparently continued chewing the gum….
-Something more meaningful, some of you might remember that my memory is extremely good, so finding what panels to use wasn’t so hard. What was hard is the standard page size layout that I use for the “RE: the controversy” Anime trollsubs (which you can see by clicking the tag), which basically means fitting an acceptable amount of panels within the page size. You can see some empty space in the early pages, which is a result of lack of panels to at least support his change of attire.
-Which is my favorite edit? I have to admit, I’m not the kind of guy who likes to hit girls, but the “torture” scene was easily my most hilarious one, which helps Twintail-chan was doing the beating and not Jin-ho. Of course the hilarious part about it was how easy it was to find a shot of Jin-ho at that angle. Believe me when I saw this, Im Dal Young’s manga will have this same exact angle for the most of the manga/manwha.
-Yeah, what I’m going to update later on, in short, during the days of Oct 16-24, my laptop suffered a multiple partition failure (I like to set up 2 or more partitions to separate OS from FILES) after I moved partitions off their designated sector area. Long story short, my lappy is back on XP, RAM downgraded to 1GB, and…. life goes on 😛
-This is actually my second manga edit, which the first one was for Kimi No Iru Machi.
-Yeah, I simply added a “d” to the title. totally a parody, ja?
-Honestly, in no way is this to be a snide shot at Im Dal Young. I’m not going to lie, I found his works entertaining….to some degree. There is the eventual hiccup in storytelling, or the rage that follows after reading the newest chapter, but…. I can’t help but think of the “what if’s”. I would like to meet the guy, or maybe even a conference chat, to see the clashing of these minds :D. It would be even better if he could read this parody.
-And uh…. buy the manga/manwha if you like it. Or wait….XD

And, finally, thanks go out to:

-The A-Team, for all this… MY BLOG ISN’T AN ONLINE READER Whoohoo! 😀
-Animesuki forum members, for putting up with my insanity.
-Sony, for their lack of driver support forcing me to regress my Vaio back to Windows XP.
-And whoever made Angry Birds, a game I can safely say I have NEVER played, yet heard (gruesome) tales about.

I’d appreciate it if you guys can spread this around the net. After that chapter 81 came out, with so many negative reactions, I thought we all could use a laugh before the eventual final chapter. And if you can point to my blog here, that’d be nice 😀

Disclaimer: the mangatron does not condone the torturing of girls, *cough*especially ones with a cute face and nice rack er legs*cough*, and the mangatron does not recommend one plays a game such as Angry Birds for the entire duration of an international flight, especially one spanning around 11 hours (Seoul, South Korea to London, UK), and most importantly….. don’t stalk your love interest halfway across the globe just to surprise confess to her, be a freakin man and man up to her face to face and confess! Imagine what happens when you get dumped!? Round trip ticket much? Hentai doujin protags do a better job than Jin-ho 😛

Fear sucks.

No, not the negative meaning… I mean literally 😄

I figured while I’m finalizing my blog changes, why not have a laugh:

>_____>

*runs*

(This may actually be my first animated photoshop job. Granted I only edited 1 frame…. but I always worked on a standalone version.)

Mashiro-iro Symphony episode 01

She’s happy about something. Well it can’t be because she’s lost… but wait, she’s happy that her oniichan can find her anytime, anywhere. So… AKA she’s happy to get lost? :P

My Fall 2011 lineup seems to be full of surprises. To me anyways, as… I basically had prior knowledge of only 3 series for Fall (that is not a sequel), so I consider this season so much more enjoyable due to the way I anticipate new episodes with much fervor.


Back to this series though, I’m going to have to forego a detailed look into the first half, as it was practically 2 siblings who could have used a GPS  :P

Yellow is line of sight, red are dead zones

No seriously, look at the pic. Why in this blue clean world did the imouto hide out of line-of-sight? Never mind the niichan telling her to stay put, but if someone is looking for you, you don’t hide, do you? It wasn’t even raining then lol…

Not that I have a beef with that scene, as I guess this first half was to setup this season’s second blondish Sena-chan. Well I think she’s blonde… the colors in this series is unique, at least compared to the shiny stuff this season. And I like it, soothes my eyes, and the series is not an action series, so this calm relaxing slice of life fits my bill.

The ep ends on a rather cliffhangerish note, though. How could a girl be so happy in one moment, and then so… tsun in the next. Ah… at least we get a nice ponytail I love the way she looks like she has cat girls if you look at her straight on.

Well ain’t that funny. You’ve practically got the whole cast in that there shot, minus the girl with the…. weird ball animal.

Ben-to episode 01

One look at this photo, and the average viewer nowadays screams “Harem!”. So sad. First of all, the loli clearly loves her meatball, the blonde with big ones is simply trying to give a face massage to the guy with her boobies, the silver haired beauty is posing for a gravure shoot, and the 2 girls on the right are so in their own little world… all of this on a single serving of food.

Ah, Bento. I don’t think I’ve ever eaten such a thing before… if it was an already prepared food, it’d be from the Deli (not necessarily already packed for you.). That is somewhat the main reason why I just didn’t know how a series would be like for these characters to fight over food, but then again, this is Japan, and Bento’s are a regular item in stores.

Ayame Shaga, a rather cute girl with glasses :D
But they aren’t so regular when they are regularly priced. Once they get marked down to clear stock, that’s when the fight (and fun) begins, and what this series has going for it in terms of story. A rather entertaining take on a battle series I say, and for a very good reason. Looking at the original prices they go as high as USD $5.00, which I know some would simply get a much cheaper (and less healthy) meal at Mc D’s.
Asebi Inoue, perhaps the resident loli of this series. Voiced by a great tsundere voice actress (no not that one)
This is also a series where the male lead isn’t a romcom invincible punching bag, as we see he did go to the hospital and he did sustain some sort of injury to the head that although it required a bandage, he can still attend school. You know, school, as in…. gotta use your thinking power. Need to spend some more time in the hospy, dude.
Two girls who are twins, but… according to the main site, they share the same name, Kyo Sawagi.

To wrap up the ep, this male lead (You. No really, that’s his name, not yours) tries his luck again at the Bento Wars, but get’s kicked by a girl wearing pantyhose. SERIOUSLY, I so want to be kicked by Sen. Never mind the eventual pain of being kicked by the boots, but the legs…. those legs….

My high score of the flash game….after several tries. My right hand must be so broken to not be able to guide the mouse properly. Offline playable here.

Miscellany pics:

She looks like… Dark Frost Witch? :P (Sadly she doesn’t look like she’ll make an Anime appearance.)

I hope this DVD cover is a sign that the Blu-Rays will include clothing damage :D

Kyoukai Senjou No Horizontal episode 01: nice hairdo!

I just wonder, is my country’s language really that good for magic attacks?

Throw this in with one of those that I knew absolutely nothing of prior to airtime. In fact, that Fall 2011 Anime Chart didn’t help with it’s picture of choice.

Thanks to CrowKenobi, mod extraordinaire at Animesuki, I saw the magazine scans and fell in love with Kimi-chan this series. Though my less than noble reasons are laughable, this episode was quite a fun enough ride that I ended up falling in love with a girl I hadn’t seen before (but heard a lot of years ago).

Where’s the nose?

First of all, Sensei (Makiko-chan!). Honestly I think she was nicely animated throughout the ep, and she got nice curves too 😀 As I mentioned earlier her voice was instantly recognizable, which I became a fan of after Mahoraba finished its run. Not to mention she tied her hair into a nice tail there (although I cringed when she cut pieces off lol). Not to mention she knows her stuff and seems smart, definitely my goddess.

THOSE LEGS.

Ahem to the actual episode, while I do find it funny that reactions across the web are very much mixed, I guess it is justifiable for first timers who didn’t read accompanying descriptions that should have been included wherever the heck they downloaded it from. I honestly understood what I was getting into by reading what was described as a “dictionary sized synopsis”, not to mention I hadn’t known this was a novel or a manga or a game even, I really thought this was Sunrise pulling something out of their hat. But what’s the surprise, novels seem like the new adapation nowadays. Not that I have a problem with that, as I don’t read novels, so that gives me a rather fresh anime experience.

I swear she’s got rocket boosters in that hair.

Now about the actual ep, I really like the action, if merely because it was centered around Sensei, but it did well enough in my opinion to keep me glued. Of course my bias is due to my enjoyment of the girls in bodysuits, but that’s to be expected.

And that grin 🙂

The other nose-less anime (Code-E) I thought of. The reason why this came to mind was that this aired when my translator days were winding down, and a fellow fansubber I know worked on this series.

And that blog-specific episode opinions will go up sometime later…
