The Display Case: Max Factory Figma #060 Ritsu Tainaka

I love K-On! if that wasn't apparent in my review of the series. Let me be more specific; I ADORE K-On! I'm super-excited for the upcoming movie, I keep track of the release dates for the manga, I have a good majority of HTT's music, including OSTs and 5 versions of "Let's Go!", I plan to buy both the Blu-Ray and standard DVD releases that Bandai put out and I own 3 of the 5 main members in toy form. In this review we'll be looking at one of those toys. In fact, we'll be looking at my favorite member who also happens to be my favorite anime character. Heck, it's thanks to her that I got into drumming! So grab your drumsticks and get ready to kick that bass as we take a look at Max Factory Figma's rendition of Ritsu Tainaka....

Otaku: What's True and What Isn't

Ok, last time I talked about something in need of clarification, I talked about the concept of Moe and how it's not as bad as it seems. Today I want to look at a term that can mean a few different things. The term Otaku can be considered a derogatory word in Japan. If you walk up to someone there and say "Hi there! I'm an otaku!" They'll probably give you a weird or dirty look, mouth off to you and avoid you like the plague. Why would they do that? well let's take a look....

Addict Overview: Soul Eater

Shounen anime is a pretty popular genre. It's been so since way back during the  hay day of Dragonball Z. For those of you who don't know, shounen is a term used to categorized a certain type of action anime. Usually ones that run for a long time and follow a common story structure of the main characters having to deal with an ever-increasing threat. Think DBZ, Naruto or Bleach. Today's overview will focus on a shounen series that's been gaining popularity over here in the past few months. I watched the series not long before the dubbed version hit DVD and it's become one of my favorite action anime. So let's dive into the surreal world of Soul Eater...
