Q & A with mangatron: Big ones, Small ones, and any in-between?

The post title is a joke from the Full Metal Panic manga, specifically the second one. I believe its volume 03, when Sousuke worked in a video rental store. I bought that manga in a US Army base bookstore back in 2006 when I returned to Germany, hence why it’s rather special to me. Except for the part where I left it in Germany.

If you read my last post, you’ll find I’m in favor of small, sporadic posts instead of once-a-blue-moon big posts, and to continue that, there are much questions going about that my PM inbox at the Animesuki forums cannot contain. Seriously, I have to empty that almost twice a season XD So today I’m going to tackle a question that has arisen a number of times the past 3 seasons: Who is that girl in your avatar?

Q: Okay, it’s been going on for awhile, but why the bouncy avatars?

A: It’s a fairly recent thing. I’m not really known for it, but as usual something happened and it ended up being a habit. It all started with the Anime version of Astarotte’s Toy, and Lotte’s well endowed mother. Specifically, episode 05. And I made it no secret my love for my Queen, but I had the fun idea to take it a step further by placing her in my avatar, perhaps a first for a mature woman such as her XD

The avatar that started it all

Of course, it made a heavy impact: at the time, my “lolitron” nickname was as prevalent as ever, then all of a sudden a bouncy woman resides in my avatar space? Shortly afterwards, I never failed to receive a PM/visitor message about “Who is the girl(yes she has been called a girl) in your avatar” during this time, and I thought “Oh, there’s not many viewers for this show, maybe I can recommend a lot to it” and I proceeded to pounce on any chance I can get to animate her screen time.

The second Mercelida avatar from episode 09

From that point, I have had a “big” avatar since. If there wasn’t a new pair of big ones that week, the avatar remained. The best part: I have had so many PM’s about questions of what series my avatar came from, and I have directed them to the appropriate thread, thus making them watch a series they never would have had it not been for my avatar. Thus, the story of my bouncy avatars, why I continue to use them, and why it remains the #1 PM I get XD

Just some of the avatars I’m responsible for since Spring 2011:

This one deserves special mention. My favorite, one that lasted for almost a month, and the most controversial avatar I have used that brought smiles and a headache to mods and regular members alike, which was also responsible for making me clean out my PM inbox twice: R-15’s Chief-chan.

Up next, is… actually, I think I should finish that tutorial first. I was also hoping to resume 7DA afterwards.

Kamisama Dolls episode 11

I knew it from the preview that went up on the website, that this was going to be a fun episode. NOT DISAPPOINTED one bit.

My current sig at Animesuki


How do I describe this ep? Uh, I don’t know, other than “watch it yourself” because continuing the trend of starting an episode with a bit from the previous ep, we get a clearer look at Kyohei using Kukuri’s left hand.

Of course the best part happens to be any scene with Mahiru, and I mean every scene of her in this ep was truly amazing, both her voice work (which IMO sounds totally NOT like any of her previous works that I’ve heard), not to mention for once she not only calls Hibino out on her big ones, but she has the pleasure of actually fondling them for herself XD

Mahiru pointed at Hibino about 3 times. Kuuko, where are you? XD

The episode isn’t just about her though, Koushirou was hilarious with his “whatever” face when he said Kirio would react that way to a beautiful oneesan. I wonder how his wife deals with this guy XD

Anime needs more adults like him.

Moyako tagging along for the ride, maybe she’ll be the referee lol. At least next ep has some solo-tentacle action for Hibino XDDDD

40 minutes. 70 images. Possibly my best GIF ever (Camera panning+ stitch!) Bigger version at the channel.

New blog feature: Ani site updates! Sept 08 2011

You know how I’ve been slacking in the episode summary part of my blog, mainly due to the horrific connection problems I’ve had last month, but lately things seem to be okay with my wireless carrier, although they’re still a little egg-headed. Anyways, you know how I am about fun stuff, and you’ll notice my previous posts, although they are dominated by Mayo Chiki, I’ve done some fun stuff too like those Dog Day’s updates from the main site, and I thought it would be a fun idea to compile noteworthy updates from these Anime official websites into one nice post here. That and… I figured I’d give my readers something to enjoy other than no updates at all XD

First and foremost, the best news I had all (week actually, since I saw this about a week or 2 ago), Dog Days Episode 5.5!

Someone tell me that’s an OVA, and not just a Drama CD. This would totally make up for that lack of support-character screen time that happened at the end of the series. Perfect timing too, if you’ll recall Episode 05 was when the Princess Millimeter kidnapping incident was resolved, so why not have some fun in the sun as a truce between the countries!

But look at Millimeter. She’s pink already, did she have to pick a pink swimsuit? Why not red? No one has red on except Noir’s red bows, how about some diversity (since Violet already took black XD)

On other news of previous season Anime, in case you missed it, don’t forget about the Hidan no Ari OVA and the Infinite Stratos OVA, as well as that Astarotte’s Toy OVA featuring My Queen in all her teenage glory πŸ˜› Certainly stuff to look forward to in case you didn’t mark your calendars.

This scene should be animated…. so that I can see some bounce OH YEAH XD

SUMMER 2011 ANIME UPDATES

Mayo Chiki ep 10 preview pics

Just look at Kureha and those glasses! I can probably guess who gave her that, if it even is a birthday gift *cough* Oh, and it seems Kureha is 16 years old already. Ah, prospective waifu fans, she is now legal XD And that giant teddy bear totally explains her episode 04 brawl with the bear, yup it does…

Kamisama Dolls viewers, don’t forget Β to keep an eye on the episode page for preview pics for episode 11.

If these updates prove to be popular, it sure would be nice to have blog contributors…

I love Masamune Usami

Ah, how many times to I have to say this? Forget it, at least the Usami Madness continues πŸ˜›

AAAHH! HER BUTT! SIT ON ME USAMI! SIT ON ME FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE XD

Mayo Chiki Episode 08, Usami-chan baths!

Ah, how frustrated I was when episode 08 rolled around, and I never got to see Usami-chan bathing. Well, with my overflowing ero-power, I made Usami-chan bath.

I loved this ‘shop, mainly because it was such a ridiculously clever use of mind tricks. I make no secret that I’ve been studying the human psyche, and I decided to utilize some of that in tricking the eyes of what they normally don’t perceive. Let’s look at how I made this ‘shop:

Ah, the original scene. Subaru should have let her hair down :p

Here’s a scene from episode 06. Why did I choose this scene? See the time of day? It’s sunset, casting a soft orange glow over Usami-chan, giving her an identical coloring as if she was in a softly lit place, such as the hot spring.

Ah, here’s where the mind trickery starts. Of course, Usami has her head slightly down, while Subaru has her head up high. That means some of the foilage in the background has been covered by Subaru, and not Usami. So, I’m not going to draw some leaves, so I decided to rip them off the background itself.

Let’s put it over Subaru, so that it looks like the foilage was originally there. Looks terrible, ja?

Until the final product of course. As I’ve mentioned earlier, the mind trick I’m playing on viewers is the fact that the foilage is quite literally just a bunch of leaves, by itself it looks like a bad copy-pasta, but when semi-covered by Usami’s face, our perception of the foilage is no longer complete, and instead our brains get the idea that someone is standing in front of the leaves, so they are therefore random to our eyes.

Of course, the joke is, in a picture like this, what’s the first thing you look at? The foilage? The rocks? The cute, naked girl that’s smiling at you? XD

RE: the controversy, Ro-Kyu-Bu’s ep 04 "I’ll do anything!"

So that part in ep 04, when Tomoka told Subaru she’ll do anything, I think this is what happened afterwards:

Why does she have to learn from him…

I would rather learn from Miho-neechan anytime πŸ˜€

*runs*

Mayo Chiki episode 07 continues…

I’m sorry Kanadack! *get’s crumpled under Kanade’s feet*

You know, I had an idea to give poor Kureha some boobies. Yeah, that scene in ep 03 when we first see her in her swimsuit. I HAD THE IDEA. Not saying I’m going to do it lol…

Mayo Chiki Episode 07


Wowsers, who gave me a time machine? And wait a minute, where did her boobies go? I’m sorry Subaru-sama, please don’t use the memory erasure technique on me!!

I’ve really gotta stop doing this lol.Β
