Hottest Cosplay Characters

May 23, 2008

Cosplay has been covered on here a few times, highlighting the good and the very fucking terrible. Well this next batch will not disappoint. Not just looking good but these are some of the most accurate to the source cosplayers out there. No fat rolls or off color mistakes here.

One to note is the Final Fantasy VI cosplayer dressed as Celes. Not only did she dress the part but she did it in style by dressing as the original Amano artwork Celes, including a very stylized sword. I thought that was a nice touch to show the original source material. Because really if she dressed as Celes from the game, she would be a 50 pixel high block of random squares and color.

Dress up.

MaoChan is Alive But Irritated

May 19, 2008

Hi All,

I am still here. I just wanted to let you all know that. Recently I have been a little disenfranchised with the whole blog thing. You know, lots of work with slim to nil returns. Well just incase you were wondering, I have gotten the nil back for all the work put in. Normally I don’t care but recently I have. Hence the break.

I will update later also planning on launching a new site/new section here with what is the best drinking game ever. You will see, stay tuned.

Learn to Run Your Own Dirty Convenience Mart

May 12, 2008

Grab a turban and some shitty knick-knacks as you get ready to embark on your training to run a dirty little stop and rob shop in Konbeni DS: Otona no Keiei Ryoku Training (The Konbeni DS: Adult’s Management Power Training). Now you too can pretend to be that old guy behind the counter who wouldn’t sell you cigarettes when you were 17. From stocking hot dogs to Horny Goat Weed Sex-MaXXXX, you will feel what it is like to run a gas station.

I kid, the game actually focuses on running a Konbeni, a Japanese convenience mart a la Lawson CS or Family Mart, in which you will have to stock bento boxes and hopefully have to do an oden minigame. It should teach those kids who play DS during school about their future careers.

Kyu-kyu.

Whatever you do though, don’t call the person behind the counter Grandma as it is liable to get you shot (video after the jump) or as Grandma said “His nuts…… they gone.”

Gyagu Manga Biyori Video Anime Shorts

May 9, 2008

Gyagu Manga Biyori, which translates directly as Good Day for Gag Manga is something I wish I had known about earlier. Just like Azumanga Daioh, these shorts are based on extremely short manga, not full books. They are animated into short clips that are only a few minutes long. And extremely hilarious.

When first viewing them, I initially drew a parallel to The Ping Pong Club which still takes the cake for most fucked up series of anime ever. This was like that except in a work friendly, shortened version. So far Gyagu Manga Biyori seems to be a win and I hope to find more. Hit the jump for the other videos and also take a look over at TV in Japan who posted these.

China to World: SCREW YOU!

May 9, 2008

The latest news to come out of China is that people are shocked that the Chinese government might not fully release its stranglehold on the internet there. For those unaware, like most people protesting China for no reason other than to look cool, the Party does not allow full internet access. There is the Great Firewall of China which blocks any sites that are deemed unworthy.

In the recent past Wang Wei, executive vice president of the Beijing Olympic organizers, had promised media would have “complete freedom” to report over the event, but stupid dolts are realizing that “complete freedom” means whatever the Party says is okay. Really, this is nothing new. Just like how China will not commit to preventing piracy of Olympic branded goods, it is just too hard and they really just don’t care. They are busy anyways fighting to break the bonds of democratic oppression in which we are all bounded by. SAVE ME!!!

For the Gold!

Earthquake or Godzilla? Either Way Japanese Shook Up

May 7, 2008

This just in, there has been a major quake hitting a 6.7 on the Richter scale north of Tokyo early Thursday (remember that Japan lives in the future by one day hence the awesome technology).

The quake was around the Ibaraki and Tochigi prefectures north of Tokyo where as in Tokyo it measured a 5 on the scale, enough to crack holes in weak buildings. Mothra has not been sighted so everyone seems to be okay.

Boom! Shake shake the room.

Horse into Glue: The Derby Incident And Its Need

May 7, 2008

Most people have heard about the happenings at the Kentucky Derby. A horse, Eight Belles, secured second place only to then go shatter both front ankles on the track. The horse was then put down immediately, within minutes of finishing the race. Of course PETA and all the other retards of the world came out of the woodwork to bitch and moan about killing the horse. Well guess what? It turns out it was done to help the poor animal from suffering, unlike the rest of us people who can’t put down the PETA people who suffer from extreme retardation. Part of this is due to the fact that the horse would not have been able to even live afterwards:

“A horse’s hoof is designed like a passive mechanical pump,” John Hermanson, a zoologist who studies horses at Cornell University in New York.. “Every time they take a step, it provides a little assist in driving blood back to the heart.”

I am sorry PETA but last I checked horses need blood to move in their body just like me. So really, Eight Belles was treated justly in not allowing the poor animal to be in pain. Next up, trip to the glue factory.

Yum. Horse Steaks.
