Gaara: ultimate anime “tragic past”


As of now, the Naruto dub on CN just finished airing episodes 76 and 77, the episodes that delve deep into Gaara’s past. It’s been at least a year since I last watched these episodes fansubbed, and after re-watching them on CN, I have to say that I honestly think Gaara has the most tragic and well-developed past of any anime character I’ve ever known…

While randomly searching around the Internet not too long ago, I stumbled across just that…Disney songs in Japanese.

AnimeTV first impressions


After checking out the first two videos of AnimeTV, I have to say that it looks like it has potential. There hasn’t been any industry authorized show like this yet, so if it were to be brought to actual television, I have a feeling it would do pretty good. I doubt it would become as immensely popular as an actual hit anime show like Naruto or Bleach, but I think it would do good among mainstream American fans.

YouTube, fansubs, and other “copyright infringements”


The whole issue about YouTube and its copyright infringement policies has always been a big topic among anime fans, and now even more so because of Google taking over YouTube. I don’t know too much about this kind of stuff, but from what I do know and have experienced from having my own YouTube account, I can say that YouTube, or rather the anime companies that enforce these copyright infringement polices, are taking things a little too far…

Happy Valentine’s Day, from MAY! ^_^


(Renton and Eureka are so cute! ~^.^~)

Happy Valentine’s Day, from Mainichi Anime Yume! I don’t have a Valentine, LOL, so it’s just another day for me, but you gotta have some appreciation for The Day of Love, ne?
